In 1989-90 I worked out of New Orleans and my office was on the Mississippi levee. Everyone has known for DECADES that the pump-motors were below so if the motors ever got flooded, the pumps stopped working. And did they do anything about that problem? NO!!! And Katrina proved that they would fail. So, after Katrina they put in the new pumps with the motors above sea level!!!
Now, for DECADES New York City knew that if the tide level went over 12 feet, that the tunnels would flood. What did they do about that? NOT A DAMN THING!!! Now, I wonder what they will do to prevent that from happening again?!?
Oh, both New York and New Orleans have been run by .... Liberals!!!
In the 1930's, when New Orleans drained the cypress swamp and built the levee system, they knew the pump-motors would fail if they got flooded. And when New York built those tunnels, they knew if there was a storm surge of over 11 feet, they too would flood. And yes, New York has been ruled by Democrats.<quoted text>
Bloomberg is a liberal? Please go on.
Sure, they have had a few Republican mayors but without a Conservative city management, they were doomed!!! Sorry, the only New Yorkers I have any empathy for is the children who have inherited their parents mistakes!
