Again? I've always wanted to see New Orleans, but do we have to rebuild it this time? The city's going under water as it is.

Even if we give them a mulligan on Katrina, there should be no overwhelming support for the fools who make no attempt to get out. I bet you the donations will be half of what was given last time.I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

Am I the only person who is not getting any form of glee over Gustav/RNC?
A major storm may hit an unprepared city (again). I'd rather see the repugs have the bestest convention ever than NOLA and the region to go through that again.This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

It wasn't Bushes fault about New Orleans during Katrina.
Blame the Gov and the Mayor of New Orleans.
That is what we have local and state officials for.
Last time the GOV. didn't request help until too late.
Both the Gov. and the Mayor were democrats.
Lets see what happens this time - with Jindal (R) as Gov.
Better, I bet.

What government agency has spent the bulk of money to rebuild the levies?At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

There was a truck driver, who has his insurance with us, that was hauling FEMA trailers to NO. He dropped one off and by the time he made it back, the first one was burnt to the ground. The fucker who got a free place to live said he didn't want a trailer, he wanted a house.

I see Mr. Mudslide is going to be shown his ignorance once more.
