So, dipsh*t, how does repairing damage due to Sandy in DC a scam? Amtrak has damage from flooding in 6 tunnels. Monies to Alaska was for aid with the Tsunami trash. Amtrak had damage from flooding in 6 tunnels.
Amtrak is an open sore draining taxpayer dollars and should be allowed to expire.

The most poignant image from Hurricane Katrina was the rows of submerged busses which should have been used to evacuate residents.

When confronted by President Bush and Mayor Nagin on September 2, Governor Blanco refused the help. She even blocked the Red Cross from entering New Orleans. Additionally, her administration was slow to remove bodies leaving them for animals to feed on. The governor's incompetence was glaring when compared to Alabama's Bob Riley and Mississippi's Haley Barbour who both expertly managed the crisis.

Until Blanco requested help, Bush could do nothing without declaring Louisiana in a state of insurrection.

The president questioned the constitutionality of such a declaration but later wrote that declaring insurrection would "unleash holy hell" by his critics.

More responsible elected officials and bureaucrats would have ensured the levee system‘s viability. They would have also moved quicker to evacuate people. Had Louisiana’s elected officials behaved in a more responsible way, many more people would be alive today. The federal response was not good, but decades of corruption combined with the state and local response significantly worsened the disaster.

You started this discussion by falsely claiming that Los Angeles had no mass transit because of some oil company conspiracy, you a-hole.
Galt is a fictional character in a second-rate, cheap, dime store sci-fi novel by Ayn Rand so, how can one argue with that?!?:-D

G-d Bless GW Bush and our troops. Bush was not paid-who was going to pay him? himself?

President O'bama on the other hand was paid to go to OK--for a photo-op... acting like he cared. There is no denying O'bama was paid.

<quoted text><quoted text>However, it does debunk your earlier crappy notion that 'mass transit can't exist in areas of frequent tremor activity' Do you want to apologize ,like a decent chap, for calling someone on an earlier reply- post of yours an 'idiot'?---you're the 'idiot' and intellectually shallow if you don't.
Mass transit connects the entire area--even the idiot said it doesn't exist because of big oil and blah blah blah. Intellectually shallow may be correct, when trying to get a point across to an idiot like you:) I am not a chap, chump.

<quoted text>The so-called 'collapse of local and state authority' that you claimed sure did not deter the hundreds of volunteers from local Churches and relief agencies that came in, immediately after Katrina struck, on the wheels of Anderson Cooper and the CNN news trucks.
"local"...
How far away is "local"?
If you recall, the roads were impassable for about a hundred mile radius around New Orleans to the east, 50 miles to the north, and no closer than Laplace to the west. The areas to the south of New Orleans were just as devastated as New Orleans.
So, how the hell did "local" volunteers get into the devastation when all roads were impassable?
What happens after a hurricane is, you find people near you and you begin to work together to get some transportation link. Eventually, you have to open a road to the outside world.
Well, that's what normal people do along the gulf coast after a hurricane. In New Orleans, the began looting, raping, killing, and shooting at the helicopters coming in to assist them.
Then, when other communities opened their doors to them, they brought a crime wave with them the giving people could never even have concieved of.
New Orleans got a well-needed flush. It had become so horrendous of a city, that flushing wasn't enough and it needs another flush. So much Democrat crap it takes two flushes to get it.

That was a Republican infested red state school super quoted in the news this week from Oklahoma:
"We can't afford tornado shelters in the schools."
But Republicans CAN AFFORD a tax cut for BILLIONAIRES? During war no less.
Thanks red GOP ffffcckkkkk ups!
You killed some kids. 2 schools: direct hit by an ef5! No shelters. Kids dead at their school.
Every Oklahoma citizen should file murder charges against the "we can't afford it" REPUBLICAN OFFICIALS.

Obama is nothing more than a halfbreed mulatto who without afirmative action and a network of traitors and anti-American supporters would just be another inner city statistic and I will be glad to stand in the long line to piss on his grave someday.
