I keep waiting for the next Hurricane to come sweeping in and obliterate New Orleans. People who live near the ocean should NOT also live below sea level. Then we'll hear more sniveling from those low IQ people. They'll be looking for someone to blame again. I tell them to look in the mirror.

    Well, first of all 70% of New Orleans is not below sea level. The problem lies with the crooked politicians, and the Corps of Engeeneers. I went though BETSY in 1965, and we had none of these problems. It would have been the same if the levees would not have failed. I live three blocks from the lake and two blocks from one of the levees that failed. We did NOT recieve any flood waters. Some parts of the city flood in a Summer rain. But in any case,I know many of my friends that were not required to have Flood Insurance because they lived in a high part of the city. To date, they have not recieved a penny of help. If we were a foreign nation at war with the USA, we would have been rebuilt by now![:(]

    As a Texan who has been transplanted to MS I am pretty up on the Hurricane stuff. And having gone thru hurricane Katrina I am thankful that we are 3 hours from the coast up here in Jackson MS.. But the thing that strikes me as so bad is that out of all the hurricanes that have hit the last couple of years. Why is it NO gets so much more attention.. After all MS took the brunt of the storm in Katrina, and Rita demolished the western part of Loisanna. Sure home and business got flooded in NO, but they were blown away on the MS coast. IMO the media is extremely biased to the poverty sticken residents of NO

    I can answer most of these questions. We secured our home and went to Monroe, Louisiana. Those people were extremely nice. When our power was turned on, we returned home and started to clean up that day...about October 8,2005. My "favorite" citizens remained behind, either through helplessnes or THE PURE DESIRE TO DO HARM. They virtually looted and destroyed everything that they could. This time they hit all of the commercial districts. That is my fear. Next time they will loot and destroy all of the nice neighborhoods, because they now know that the police will not be able to protect everyone's home. Therefore, with a generator, I am not evacuating again! I am protecting my property against these "Animals". "They" re-elected the same useless mayor and "they" put Jefferson back in office. The "Animals" are the problem...most people in New Orleans are very nice.[:(!]

    Yup. Stockin' up on ammo, vodka, and vienna sausages.[:D]
    Hopefully the next hurricane will drown what's left of the rats and they won't come to Baton Rouge.
