lol! You made it a Blanco / Nagin issue son.<quoted text>
But you're still wrong.
Over the five years of President Bush’s administration, Louisiana received far more money for Corps civil works projects than any other state, about $1.9 billion.
Louisiana not only leads the nation in overall Corps funding, it places second in new construction — just behind Florida.
To be fair, Louisiana’s politicians are no different from those of other states and want to get as many federal dollars as they can and spend them on projects that will have the biggest economic impact.
In this case, they judged the risk of a Category 4 or 5 hurricane taking a direct path over New Orleans sufficiently low as to permit the money to go to projects that were seemingly more urgent.
Obviously, they guessed wrong–with tragic consequences.
Stop placing blame on everyone and everything besides those who are most to blame.
It's going to make you very mad, but that's childish.
You were schooled that the system is a federal issue.
So you started the blame game based on false and incorrect information you're trying to sell.
"...It's going to make you very mad, but that's childish."
