But part of the catastrophe lives on, in abandoned homes still bearing spray-painted circles indicating they had been searched and whether bodies were found inside.

Did Obama have the crappy Corp of Engineers change out those stupid pumps that the horses asses wrongly installed to protect New Orleans? The Corp of Engineers never learn. They are too busy eating Lobster Savichi for breakfast in Miami at their important "Meetings"

The day I witnessed the debaucle of how our government handled Katrina, was the day I realized we are in a heap of trouble. Everyone passed the buck...there was no excuse for people not to be evacuated. The sheer incompetency was one thing...the lack of any services to the people trapped in the Super Dome was incomprehensible. We do such a good job of helping other countries. It never occurred to me that America would not help their own people in a time of crisis. Then, on top of it all, the people who lost their homes had to deal with insurance companies who refused to pay....citing every excuse under the sun. You had to go to court to force them. New Orleans and the Mississippi Gulf Coast had more help from Christian churches....Christians loaded up and headed for the people in pain. They were the ones who gave comfort and relief to these people. It is a black mark on the way this country operates. Government bureauracy is one thing....inhumanity dressed as public servants boils my blood.

If memory serves me correctly, didn't the public servants in Washington at that time run their political re-elections on their "High Christian Moral Values"?

It was embarassing and sad to see the videos of the bodies the dead floating around for weeks.I hope our government never ever turns thier back on the citizens again.Taking revenge on old people and children is wrong whether by Republicans or Democrats.The people in Mississippi and Alabama did get help,but New Orleans has still not received much help,only from other citizens,not the Federal government.

Not much help??????????How about the billions we taxpayers paid? Louisiana recieved much, much more than Ala. and Miss. did. What did they do with the money? Ala. and Miss are pretty much back to normal. And N.O.??????? Still just sitting there decaying. Why is there such a difference? Could it be the entitlement mentality of the people in N.O, waiting for the government to do something instead of doing something themselves like the people in Ala. and Miss. did?

The rest of the country is not responsible for (D) Ray "Chocolate City" Naggin's failure to bus vulnerable people out of the city located Below Sea Level.

Did those idiots re-elect Chocolate City Ray?

And the idiot (D) Kathleen Blanco wasn't even smart enough to figure out or ask what or why Bush declare her state a disaster area Before the hurricane hit. Someone please tell that idiot scumbag-0-crat that it was so she could request Federal Assistance immediately!

Washington? You must be really stupid and/or a typical democrat.

The lack of preparation and evacuations were City and State issues, Not Federal.

High Moral Values? Gee,(D) John Edwards certainly ran on then FROM those claims. ROFL!

WHY HASN’T OBAMA AND HOLDER TAKEN ACTION…………..MISSOURI IS A SWING STATE

Missouri 's approach to the problem of illegal immigration appears to be more advanced, sophisticated, strict and effective than anything to date in Arizona . Do the loonies in San Francisco , or the White House, appreciate what Missouri has done? When is our dynamic Attorney General going to take action to require Missouri to start accepting illegal immigrants once again?
So, why doesn't Missouri receive attention?

Answer: There are no Mexican illegal's in Missouri to demonstrate.

In 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed constitutional amendment designating English as the official language of Missouri . In November, 2008, nearly 90% voting in favor! Thus, English became the official language for ALL governmental activity in Missouri . No individual has the right to demand government services in a language OTHER than English.
In 2008 a measure was passed that required the Missouri Highway Patrol and other law enforcement officials to verify the immigration status of any person arrested, and inform federal authorities if the person is found to be in Missouri illegally. Missouri law enforcement offices receive specific training with respect to enforcement of federal immigration laws.

In Missouri illegal immigrants do NOT have access to taxpayers benefits such as food stamps and health care through Missouri HealthNET. In 2009 a measure was passed that ensures Missouri 's public institutions of higher education do NOT award financial aid to individuals who are illegally in the United States .
In Missouri all post-secondary institutions of higher education to annually certify to the Missouri Dept. of Higher Education that they have NOT knowingly awarded financial aid to students who are unlawfully present in the United States .

So while Arizona has made national news for its new law, it is important to remember Missouri has been far more proactive in addressing this horrific problem.

Missouri has made it clear that illegal immigrants are NOT welcome in the state and they will certainly NOT receive public benefits at the expense of Missouri taxpayers!

EDITORIAL
Waiting for Mr. Obama
Published: August 28, 2010

If President Obama has a big economic initiative up his sleeve, as he hinted recently, now would be a good time to let the rest of us in on it.
News on Friday confirmed that the economy was far weaker in the second quarter than originally believed, growing at 1.6 percent versus an initial reading of 2.4 percent. Grim reports on housing sales indicate that the slowdown has continued. In a normal recession, housing would lead the way up from the depths. Today, it appears to be leading the way back down.

If the levies hadn't broken there would not have been that kind of damage. People all over the country try to ride out the storms. Nothing different here. Correct?
