The levee system has been in need of repair/upgrade since the 1920s or 30s...somewhere in there...so both parties have been ignoring it on all levels of gov since then.

They had a cane back in the mid 30s (again, someone check for exact dates) and the gov broke a few levees to alleviate pressure. The city flooded from that but no worries...only the poor suffered and died in nearly the exact same locations...just like last 2005.

:thumbup:

The government likes to do things like that from time to time. That's how they killed a bunch of poor folks in the Johnstown, PA flood (in the late 19th century) as well.

Gotta admire the consistency and who says our gov doesn't work? When there's poor folks to kill...they nail it!
