If you live in the sticks in cajun country, you probably know someone with a tractor. I myself know several, and I live in the city. Oh and you will
find no basements down here. Go ahead and dig a few feet into the ground, all you'll find is water. Your just going to have to admit that what you
are preaching here is your opinion, nothing more. And it's a real messed up attitude to take on right now, considering that people are trying to help
themselves instead of expecting someone else to help them. And I'm sorry, but there's not many "wealthy" people living in the areas that got flooded.
These are mostly poor communities, and farmers.
A tractor is a completely different thing compared to a bulldozer used to compact soil. and if they used a tractor such as a farm type it would take
too long they would still be moving dirt.
poor communities and farmers? are you implying farmers are poor?
its good you know people with tractors ever own one ever spend 8hrs a day on a bulldozer?
well I have an this is fact not my opinion which i have backed up with evidence and my experience all you have brought are insults because you don't
like my observations.

It is possible that both sides are correct. It is impossible to accurately reach a correct conclusion, that summarizes each and every residence, from
only looking at aerial photographs.
Here is the way I see it-
It is very likely that some, possibly even many, of these dams and/or levees were built by a paid crew. That does not mean all of them were.
Those few, that got out there, and did it themselves, do not deserve to be bad-mouthed by someone who just wants to show his anger, and pretend that
he knows everything.
Even if only ONE man did it himself, then that ONE man deserves to be praised, and not belittled by you, or anyone else, that chooses to look down
upon them, without knowing all of the details.
would you please bring some evidence as to why I am wrong in stead of preaching your word like its gospel.
again to clarify my last post Dirt work is my job, I am not belittling anyone sorry you take offense.
bottom line I dont expect our Gov to spoon feed US citizens...
but when I PAY my Gov to do a Job I expect it to get done. the Gov failed and citizens had to pay with their own money to save their homes....
you may want to look at the bright side of this story but I see that as ignorance.
there are no heroes here only people making due with what they have because their local Gov failed them.
sorry if you dont like the truth but thats it.
Engineers have known this was a problem for more than 15years and NOTHING has been done about it.
next time someone wants to tell me I am wrong please bring some evidence that what i stated is not true.
this is becoming childish and like another poster said just adds to the division of us as people.
I love you all no matter what, no hate from me, and i am hurt at all the hate being flung like baboons in a cage.
