I swear this has been the worse 8 years in American history. FMEA warned NO that they levies were out of date and need to be fixed. What is a city
to do when it's budget is cut by the powers that be.
Where was the money that was allotted for the levies going? The Federal government did fund the levies, the money got sent elsewhere by the same
governor that did not ask for federal assistance for over 48 hours after the landfall. Perhaps if the Democratic governor did ask for help, or less
power was given to her by the United States Constitution that states the governor must request what was needed, then the administration could have
legally acted sooner, without violating the U.S. Constitution.
They asked for money to update the levies but the government would not provide them with the money.
Again, the levies were funded, but a portion of that money went elsewhere, by the local government, not the federal government.
You all wonder why this tragedy has become a race issue? Because this has shown America for what is really is. A nation that is more worried about
world domination that taking care of it's own citizens. How long did it take bush to cut his vacation short??!?! Not long enough if you ask me.
It's only been a week and this nation is already crumpling. Gas stations raised prices on the gas they already had. It's all about making a quick
buck. Let's see how long we will be feeling the effects of this storm.
If America crumples due to this ..... yes, we are weak.
We are still feeling the effects of the Civil War, so I imagine this will be effecting us for a long time.
