Bob Dole agreed too. You have a happy Memorial Day too. Get the backyard grill fired up and the badminton net too. Does the local Fire Department and Ladies Auxiliary organize the carnival and fireworks display in your town too?

Fn moron!
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.

GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)- Many dignitaries and notable names are in town this week to honor the 100th birthday of President Gerald R. Ford.

The Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum held a birthday tribute dinner Monday night. Former political speech writer Ben Stein, and White House correspondent Bob Schieffer were among the many in attendance.

The celebration continues Tuesday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony to debut the exhibition honoring President Ford's 100th birthday "Growing up Grand".

The Corps of Engineers needs to allocate their budget where it will have the most effect.
Protecting New Orleans over the long term is a losing proposition no matter how much money is spent.
Better to spend the money where there is a chance of success.
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.

First and foremost, I am a conservative who believes strongly in less government and fair taxes.

The Republican Party is the one of the only two with any influence who share my beliefs.

<quoted text>republicans chose a worse response to deny that we need background checks that could have kept those illegal guns off the streets and out of the hands of criminals. Go figure.
Do you honestly believe that any of these weapons were bought legally?

Criminals selling guns to other criminals will not do background checks no matter how many laws you fools pass.

That's why they are criminals.

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 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?

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.
