Barack Obama, our next President

No, funding of relief efforts is not a Constitutional function of the federal government, and implementing such efforts at the municipal level is even less a function of the federal government.

Every levee, as well as any other engineered structure, has a design basis. Katrina exceeded the design basis for the levees. End of story.
Actually, the feds were supposed to upgrade the levees.

CSN Houston spoke with new Rockets rookie Isaiah Canaan about something that deeply affected his outlook on life coming up. Canaan is a Hurricane Katrina survivor, after the megastorm tore through his home of Biloxi, Mississippi in 2005. Canaan returned from a shelter with his grandmother after the storm passed to discover they'd lost everything in the house.
"I lost everything but a week, probably three, four days of clothes, a couple of pairs of my shoes, and my Playstation," Canaan said. "That's all I had to my name. For awhile, close to a month, I had no house, I was living out of a church, so I pretty much lost everything. I had to restart and work my way back in."
Canaan eventually was relocated to a FEMA trailer that is smaller as a whole than most people's bedrooms. He lived in that trailer for about two years.
via Overcoming disaster to acheive his dreams | CSN Houston.
In the interview, Canaan talks about how the experience helped him grow and mature, to appreciate what he has and to not take things for granted. It'll be important for him to draw on that experience with the Rockets, as Canaan is likely to spend considerable time developing for the Rockets' D-League team, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. But if he's willing to persevere as he did after the storm, the payout will be with it, as many guards that have spent time in the Rockets' system have not only won NBA playing time, but major roles and bigger contracts.
Either way, an inspiring story from a young man who survived The Storm.
Good story, except that FEMA trailers are not smaller than most people's bedrooms.

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.

President Barack Obama who agrees even more strongly with you. Our President has demonstrated on more than one occasion to be a very cautious , reluctant Commander-in-chief. He had plenty of opportunity and even greater insistence and support from leaders of Congress John McCain and U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham to not only arm the Syrian rebels but extend a no-fly zone over Syrian skies--that would ,according to France, be a violation of United Nations Resolution Article 7. Instead; the President remains cautious in involving the United States , the one super power on the planet ,too militarily---he has provided humanitarian aid and some small arms and training for the Syrian National Council which is recognized by 100 countries and international governments as the legitimate representatives of the Syrian people. As one top U S diplomat put it, the policy that President Obama has chosen appears to be the best , least harmful position to pursue out of a very bad set of choices.

Already said storm relief was not a legitimate federal government function, but guess a creepy-ass cracker like you can't read.

This is just one big shell game. New Jersey taxpayers foot the bill for storm relief in Florida, and then Florida taxpayers foot the bill for storm relief in New Jersey. Meanwhile the federal government takes a healthy slice off the top to feed the bureaucracy.

How about the novel idea of everybody either purchasing insurance to cover potential losses, or living with the losses?

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.

Oh, jeeeezzz. I don't own boots high enough to read all of your bullshit.

For one thing, Obama has nothing to do with this. He's nothing more than a cardboard cutout of a commercial to make it look like someone's president. He's not in charge of anything. Vallerie Jarrett is the real president.
Second, we have goddam Wahhabist terrorists connected with Al Qaeda in the White House every day.
Third, McCain met with Al Qaeda less than a week after they massacred an entire Christian village, killing every man, woman and child.

Obama is one of the muslim terrorists. His sole function is to say what he's told to say, and obstruct any effort by the United States to confront these medieval Arab animals.

Did you watch the video of them cutting off that priest's head? Those are the same animals Obama has in the White House every day.
