Bullshit. There was no plan other than Corps of Engineers maintenance.
Also, I remember when they were originally building those levees. You couldn't pick the paper up without reading on the front page about how all the money was being stolen.
Democrats stole the money during construction of the levees.
Democrats collapsed the city government the day before the storm hit.
Democrats collapsed the state government when the storm came ashore.
Two full days before the storm hit, one full day before the Democrat city government of New Orleans collapsed, Bush declared the area a disaster area and released all federal assets to the state and local governments. The federal government does not have the constitutional authority to pretend a state or local government doesn't exist, even if it collapses.
Democrats really screwed the pooch on that one.
I'm glad you remember so much of your fantasy son.

Did you know the total cost for the entire war in Iraq was less than the Democrats' Porkulus bill?... which was in response to the economic catastrophe caused by the Democrats' subprime housing mortgage underwriting program that collapsed our economy after two years of oversight by Democrats, by the way.

Your Post:
"No one ever suspected he had a dark side just under the surface for years. That was a real eye opener for me too. How Hitler came across as so non-threatening for so long to so many. Kind of hard to believe in retrospect. "
Which book originated this piece of knowledge?
Tell us about Hitler's light side!
When was Hitler Non-threatening?
Holocaust deniers write this type of misinformation.
Are you a Holocaust denier?
UK's Neville Chamberlain's certainly didn't see Hitler's dark side - until it was too late.

Goebbels was skilled in propaganda techniques, and he and Hitler were extremely popular in Germany in the 1930s. Movies, newspapers and radio fawned over them.

All the while, they were lying about who they were and where they were going. Mussolini, too, was also once wildly popular.

This is the lesson history should teach us:

In all of these cases, people cheered for what eventually brought them misery. They cheered because they were ignorant and ignorant because no one told them the truth.

Those in power allowed no other opinions and lied to them.

If they would have been fully informed, they would have been horrified by that truth.

"...Inevitably, Einstein’s fame and the great success of his theories created a backlash. The rising Nazi movement found a convenient target in relativity, branding it “Jewish physics” and sponsoring conferences and book burnings to denounce Einstein and his theories. The Nazis enlisted other physicists, including Nobel laureates Philipp Lenard and Johannes Stark, to denounce Einstein. One Hundred Authors Against Einstein was published in 1931. When asked to comment on this denunciation of relativity by so many scientists, Einstein replied that to defeat relativity one did not need the word of 100 scientists, just one fact.
In December 1932 Einstein decided to leave Germany forever (he would never go back). It became obvious to Einstein that his life was in danger. A Nazi organization published a magazine with Einstein’s picture and the caption “Not Yet Hanged” on the cover. There was even a price on his head. So great was the threat that Einstein split with his pacifist friends and said that it was justified to defend yourself with arms against Nazi aggression. To Einstein, pacifism was not an absolute concept but one that had to be re-examined depending on the magnitude of the threat.
Einstein settled at the newly formed Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, New Jersey, which soon became a mecca for physicists from around the world. Newspaper articles declared that the “pope of physics” had left Germany and that Princeton had become the new Vatican....."
Here, just take a look and read this.

According to the census of June 16, 1933, the Jewish population of Germany was approximately 505,000.

An estimated 37,000 Jews emigrated from Germany during 1933.

You never told us why you choose to belong to a political party that built itself on treason and spit on veterans, then slandered them with lies.
You pretend to have military experience. Were you one of the frauds pretending to be Vietnam veterans in the so-called "Vietnam Veterans Against the War" that invented a system of lies to slander real veterans with?
Or, are you just not old enough to have done that, son.

An exact parallel with today here.
There is nothing promoted about Obama that isn't a lie, and the media is doing the exact same thing today that the German propaganda machine did in Germany in the 30s. A blind person can see it.

Couple of points.
All the fawning over hitler you state. All the fawning by the radio, the movies, the newspapers was done by Nazi controlled entities.
The Germans of the 30's were surely not ignorant, they understood the despot that ruler their country.

There's a big case now in the courts here where two brothers made over $50 million in their pain clinics, both in prison for 17 years, 7 deaths were attributed to their clinics, the two doctors are being charged as well, haven't been sentenced yet. However, the source is the maker of this drug. It's complicated.

Break up the banks!
Even though the banks have gotten caught and paid settlements, they still got away with it and the victims homes were still lost.
Walgreens in Fl just paid an $80 million settlement after it was discovered that they were paying bonuses for the most prescriptions of oxycondone prescribed. Where will that money go?
A better way to fix the system is developing a mechanism by which firms can fail without causing unacceptable damage to the rest of the economy. The intent of the “orderly liquidation authority” in the Dodd–Frank law.

Breaking up the banks is a simple answer to a complex problem and, like many simple answers, it is the wrong one likely to do much harm for little or no benefit. Too-big-to-fail should be ended, but breaking up banks is not the way to do it.

That was Romney's solution to GM. Automakers to go through managed bankruptcy and the federal government provide guarantees for post-bankruptcy financing.

Private financing for the bankruptcies could have also been possible with federal loan guarantees as opposed to direct loans.

Whether it would have worked or not, we'll never know.
