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.
lol! You made it a Blanco / Nagin issue son.

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.

Fascism opposed socialist and communist ideology but was also critical of some aspects of capitalism, arguing for what is sometimes called a Third Position between capitalism and Marxist socialism.
Fascism is usually placed on the far right on the traditional left-right spectrum, fascists themselves and some commentators have argued that the description is inadequate.

Only leftists place Fascism on the right.

Did you know that it was the Bush Administration that began normalizing diplomatic relations with Libya? Can you tell us all what year that occurred?
BTW it was America's Hunt family who discovered and developed Libya's oil fields.
Gaddafi was a tiger tamed. Terrorist groups were banned from the country and controlled and then someone got the bright idea to remove him and the country has spiraled downward since.

Only an idiot like you would ask such an ignorant question.

Thanks again for displaying your stupidity.

A better question is what our Ambassador was doing in Benghazi without a complete security detail to provide protection.

Why aren't the Repugnants smart enough to ask what Mr. Hill was up to in Benghazi, where he went to on the sly..........

But that's a National Security secret, not likely to be revealed for another 20 years or so.

You idiots have been on this joke for months now. You already lost an election because nobody cared, and you continue to act stupidly while America ignores you, realizing it's all racist hatred from losers like you.

You must have an awful hangover today to be asking such stupid questions.

Typically your questions aren't quite that brainless. Close, but not quite!!

<quoted text>You don't stay well-informed on the nation's news. Both the American Veterans Jobs Act and the American Veterans with Disabilities Act were defeated by Republicans. "Eager to shoot down President Obama’s legislative agenda just weeks before the election, Senate Republicans on Wednesday blocked a measure that would have provided $1 billion over five years to help veterans find work in their communities. " http://nyti.ms/TQXgk3
"Former Senator Bob Dole, 89 years old and in a wheelchair, went onto to the floor of the Senate today to urge his former colleagues to ratify the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities. Mr. Dole, a disabled veteran, has been one of the leading voices urging ratification of the treaty, which seeks to bring the world closer to the high standard set by the Americans with Disabilities Act, the landmark civil-rights law enacted under President George H.W. Bush." ..."One by one, according to Roll Call, the senators approached Mr. Dole to pat his shoulder or clasp his hand, making gestures of respect for the man who was for many years the Republican majority leader.
Then he was wheeled away, and all but a handful of the Republicans bailed out on him. The treaty failed. It needed a two-thirds vote to pass, or 67 votes, and fell six short." Check this out: http://takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/12/0...

Police: Ky Officer fatal shooting 'premeditated'

The fatal roadside shooting of a Kentucky police officer was premeditated and authorities are asking for the public's help in finding suspects, a police spokesman said Sunday.

Bardstown Officer Jason Ellis, 33, was shot multiple times with a shotgun after he got out of his cruiser to pick up debris on Bluegrass Parkway in Nelson County late Saturday night, Kentucky State Police spokesman Norman Chaffins told The Associated Press.

Ellis was in uniform and was driving home. The original call came in as a traffic crash, but when troopers arrived they found that Ellis had been fatally shot.

----------

Further evidence of redneck Red--State Repugnant teabaggers committing crimes against Government.

Another Repugnant murder, fits right in with Nobraina's anti-police diatribes here.

Time for Obama to come down hard on these white supremacist Repugnants.

Start with taking their guns. Any member of the Teabagger Party should not be allowed to own guns.

Tthey can start by obtaining Topix records on all the Teabagger Anti-American scum on this thread.

YOU ARE the moron. What you are asking for will bring on scandal five. This issue of gathering US weapons from the Libyans, why did they have them?, and sending them to Syria is a MAJOR concern and probably being dealt with behind close doors -due to security concerns- with a great deal of stonewalling from the admin.

You are typically idiotic in your ranting and ill thought out responses.

Wow!! What an incredibly stupid statement.

It's like saying the sun only shines during the day.

You really need to get a life, Nobraina.

You spend your life here saying truly stupid things, then run off like the coward you are when it's pointed out.

Can't your Attendant take you outside for awhile?? The fresh air may clear the farts that are obviously clouding your thinking.

Tell us, why the charade of pretending there is a Galt, and that he's in CA??

Everyone here knows who you are and where you are. You've never left PA, the sewer where two judges got thrown in jail for selling their positions to prison companies.

A State so foul, they have to abandon entire towns because they have coal seams on fire underground.
