Frustration flooded storm-battered parts of New York on Tuesday as Congress seemed ready to allow yet another day to pass without approving badly needed disaster aid.

This delay in aid shows how far the culture of the United States has fallen since those times. It makes me wonder what happened to our society.
Thats a good question, maybe you should ask Kim Kardashian.

It may not be politically correct to say so, but what you are describing is the contrast between a White ruled nation and an African ruled nation. After the high paid agenda driven Government judges departed from the Constitution in order to impose their "Brown" dictate, all sense of community and commonality was destroyed. This eventually enabled the Africans to take control of every aspect of the lives of the minority of Americans who are still fortunate enough to pay the oppressive taxes needed to support a now bankrupted nation.

Why do teabaggers just blurt out crap?
Oh' that's right, FAUX and Limbaughtomy.
When Katrina hit, that congress and the Bush had appropriated the money in 10 days to their credit.
It's what happened during the storm and the ineptitude of Michael Brown which George praised,while nothing was being done or done wrong but that was his track record anyway.
Despite Republican efforts to whittle down President Obama's $60.4 billion Hurricane Sandy relief request to a mere $23.8 billion, Senate Democrats (with the help of 12 GOPers) managed to pass the bill almost virtually intact on Friday.
Estimates of damage run well above of the %3.6 billion FEMA was allocated for the storm.
The red tape of the teabaggers has EVERYTHING to do with it,we're POSITIVE.
Poor teabagger.
The ineptetude was a democrat governor blanco and the little boy totally ignorant democrat mayor nagin. Period.

Millions sent for 40 years to Louisiana to shore up the levee's...money transfered to other "projects" by dem leaders..including union bosses and kickbacks.

Louisiana elected a republican governor and mayor since...now things are getting done. You don't get out much do you, clown?

We will send them to the same place we sent Etchy.

I get it.

The NY demand for aid was DOUBLED to take care of construction unions with contracts for "long term" storm protection. The FIRST thing the politicians do is take care of the unions.

What kind of construction project takes care of coastal flooding? In reality, the projects cost far more than the storm damage.

And, when you think about it, most of the property damage was on sites where they never should have been given a building permit.$2 million homes on sandbars, for example.

Your post was disgustingly racist, and should be deleted. Sadly typical of too many right-wing haters.

Intelligent people know it's the Teabag Party-dominated House which is obstructing legislation, not the Senate. The latter's main problem is with GOP misuse of the filibuster rule, which should be abolished.

Reid's not much, but compared to McConnell (R-Fishface) he looks brilliant.

Exactly. "Racism" is a political emotionalism of no fixed meaning. Its intended purpose is to move the debate ever leftward.

According to wealthy taxpayer supported university "professors" and their idiot "love children" who slithered out of the 60s 70s era "revolution", the African are incapable of "racism". We should begin calling them to account by having these no-good self-serving dreamers how they explain the demise of a one time free great nation?

Yeah, especially since the Rethugs did so well in the last election.

By the way, are you going to President-elect Etchy's inauguration?

$60 billion is a lot of money and instead of
dishing it out to victims of Hurricane Sandy,
it would be a nice New Year's present for the
upper two-percenters, our wonderful
"job creators" and the only constituency
Republicans actually give a damn about..

Tough luck victims.

Ask not what your corporate elite can do for you,
but what you can do for your corporate elite.

God bless the corporate elite and their
well-paid stooges, the Republican congressional
delegation.

They are certainly gettibg done in Piyush contry, all right. That would explain why Louisiana ranks LAST in education, economic vitality, and health care.

No, Ronnie, this is how it works. When you post filth like this..

"...what you are describing is the contrast between a White ruled nation and an African ruled nation. After the high paid agenda driven Government judges departed from the Constitution in order to impose their "Brown" dictate, all sense of community and commonality was destroyed. This eventually enabled the Africans to take control..."

..then you are a RACIST. I'm not offering a suggestion, being "politically correct," or calling names, I'm merely stating what we call a "fact." That is, that you are bigoted against Africans and people of color, and therefore insanely believe that minorities are "destroying" the nation.

You're ranting like a paranoid, racist nut, IOW.

Whether "Africans," as you call them, are capable of racism or not isn't even the point. YOU are capable of racism, and are in fact guilty of it. Does that make it clearer?

Incidentally, "tha Professor" is just a nickname. You are a REAL racist.

At least be honest. It's bad enough that you're racist without being a coward, too.
