Carol posts as a republican and sees things through republican glasses.
Think President George W Bush is now too liberal for the present day Republican party.
President Ford seems to agree in recent comments.
Happy Memorial Day

Clearly bushie boy wasn't ready.
At least the Bush administration WAS at "battle stations".

Months before the attack, Clinton was being tried by a Grand Jury and lying his ass off being accused of sexual harrassment involving a subordinate while governor of Arkansas and embarrassing himself for lying to the country and to his family about getting BJs in the Oval Office on the taxpayer dime.

I'll take "battle stations" any day. Clinton is excused though, I know. His sex life was his personal business.

That is the real problem with Obamacare.

If you are ill and don't receive treatment from a Medical doctor, then you have been denied medical care.

The 25% that don't respect the military are all DemocRATS like oDopebamma who thinks the marines are for holding umbrellas.

The Marines make excellent props though. It's all about his image, you know.

Not sure what you are.
Not true at all. The Libertarian and Green parties also share your beliefs in smaller governments and fair and balanced taxes that guarantees a more equal distribution of the wealth in this country. Why do you ignore them?

<quoted text>Totally of topic__the Corps of Engineers are in charge of the Mississippi, the adjacent levees, Lake Ponchartrain and much muc more in Louisiana, there are Dutch Engineering groups and other subcontractors located in the area some for decades. All this bullsht has already been debunked pal.
BushCo came up way short on response to both Katrina the Storm and then again on the following levee collapses and flooding.
Hardly off topic to object to spending money in a losing cause.

Low-lying areas of New Orleans subject to flooding should be converted to parkland.

Use the money wasted on levees to build new housing on higher ground.

Do state governments being responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of their own levees sound familiar, Realtime?
In the late 19th century, the state of Louisiana established several levee districts which were local organizations responsible for operating and maintaining the levees, embankments, seawalls, jetties, breakwaters and flood basins. The district and the Army Corps of Engineers share the costs.
I could call you a name and sound like a loser too, but I choose not to.
What you're doing would be funny if it were not so pathetically sad Carol.

You're not even close to correct__and I'm over this troll game.

New Orleans District US Army Corps of Engineers can be googled and you can click on Regulatory among many other topics. www.mvn.usace.army.mil

geesh louise what does something in the 19th century, before the US Army Corps of Engineers have to do with anything. While that may have been true in the 1800's it wasn't in 2005 you know more than a century later

The federal gov't organization known as the US Army Corps of Engineers was and still is responsible for the levees in New Orleans

You will be denied medical care when you're ill in republican-governed states that are stalling on their medicare extension responsibilities under the new ACA guidelines and setting up healthcare exchanges.

<quoted text>The media twisted the facts into something spectacular and it's all been debunked.
To be sure Berger was guilty of removing "copies" of classified documents from the archives and his notes may have also been in violation. Basically Sandy got lazy and thought he'd just take a shortcut__kind like you often do here.
He didn't shove anything down his pants, in his socks, up his sleeves or under his hat band. That is a lie created by media and repeated by idiots like you. It's been debunked__no one who ever saw Berger do that has ever been found or named.
TSM was wrong__your dumbazz came along later__without a fkn clue.
The Archives staff reported to the FBI Berger put documents in his pants. One staffer said it looked like he also put something in his socks.

I posted the CNN source a few pages back. I'll let you do the work and find it this time.

Unless you believe the Archives staff was in on a vast rightwing lie...which wouldn't surprise me in the least.

If the measure of George W Bush being at battle stations allowed the single biggest, deadliest attack on U.S. soil in the history of the United States after repeated warnings of an impending attack

then I'll take the blue dress.......

it was the Democrats who were concerned about the blue dress. if you remember correctly it was the GOP, who after years of investigating the Clinton administration and $72 MILLION TAXPAYER DOLLARS tHE GRAND INQUISITOR Starr finally came up with some trumped up charges

Okay, I'll post it again as apparently your teacher didn't do a very good job teaching comprehension skills.

In the late 19th century, the state of Louisiana established several levee districts which were local organizations responsible for operating and maintaining the levees, embankments, seawalls, jetties, breakwaters and flood basins. THE DISTRICT AND THE ARMY CORPOS OF ENGINEEERS SHARE THE COSTS.

I even highlighted the part you convienently overlooked - or never read.
