Maybe you shouldn't live below sea-level and blame others for your choices to rebuild in a crime ridden city?

You had plenty of time to get out, instead you stay and act like animals in an enclosed dome.

You are the perfect examples of victims.

This suit should be against those who pressured the government to build & maintain that hurricane flood highway. But that will never happen.

Another example of misuse of federal dollars for corporate gain, against the needs, and in this case, the safety of the public.

In other words, more corporate socialism.
When I hear the tea-baggers complain about projects like this, then I'll know their corporate strings are cut.
