Listen, lad. I built this kingdom up from nothing. When I started here, all there was was swamp. Other kings said I was daft to build a castle on a swamp, but I built it all the same, just to show 'em. It sank into the swamp. So, I built a second one. That sank into the swamp. So, I built a third one. That burned down, fell over, then sank into the swamp, but the fourth one... stayed up! And that's what you're gonna get, lad: the strongest castle in these islands.

Anyway if you want to debate I'll debate you, but if you're just going to put words in my mouth then don't bother because I have no interest in debating the ignorant. That's why I come to this website, to get away from ignorance and the close minded.

it's not the people of new orleans fault that the negligence of the government put them in harms way. state and local government should have addressed this situation long ago. they certainly collected their share of ad valorem taxes. it is not the peoples fault that an unnecessary war;unprecedented social programs; and massive sales of treasuries and government bonds to foreigners have bankrupted our country. the people are not the problem. follow the money.
i'm not saying we should subsidize people who choose to live here, but we should help them out of harms way. the same as we would when a ship is sinking.
