  1. Part of the problem with those levees is that the federal government moved millions of dollars set aside for fixing the levees and gave it to the war in Iraq. The city officials really didn't have anything to do with the levee because its federal property. The Army Core Of Engineers were supposed to make the levees stronger but they never bothered to redo them because the war in Iraq was top priority. Office of Homeland Security is supposed to protect homeland but it looks like to me the homeland is what is suffering. 963884[/snapback] >>

  3. i know one thing...a lot of politicians are gonna have to answer a lot of questions. in regards to why the city wasn't better prepared since they'd been warned for decades that something like this could very well happen. and not to mention over the past few years the current administration(and probably past ones too) cut disaster research funding to the Gulf states, thus causing a hiring freeze in some cases.
  4. i am sorry but $100,000 aint enough. i know he got more than that. that's td jakes. 962049[/snapback] Well he did say that he had trucks of supplies outside of the city waiting to get in the city and he also talked about other things he was doing to help the victims. I think something is better than nothing and it's a relief to see people stepping up to the plate. I am sure that's just the beginning of his contributions. TD Jakes has always been a very generous man when it comes to stuff like this. 962096[/snapback] i dont understand if they are evacuatting the c

The storm's youngest victims are being allowed to attend school here in Houston until they can return home. HISD administrators are also helping New Orleans school officials with any help they need to get students back in class. HISD teachers and administrators are opening up their wallets, as well.

  13. I saw his story last night and the reporter asked him his wife's name and he told her and she was like. Maybe I can help, we can find her and he said, she's gone. She gone. It looked to me like the reporter was crying too. He said his house just split apart and washed her away and he tried to hold her the best he can. My heart is broken by all this tragedy. I wonder if those foreign countries that America helped during the Tsuami going to help America this time around. 960543[/snapback] Venezuala is offering oil and aid....some European nations have expressed interest

  15. i clearly remember filling up at that gas station in feb. once that kind of water comes in contact with your skin, you need a diluted chlorine or bleach solution to get it off. i hope all those looting fools grabbed some clorox along with the beer they were stealing...they're gonna need it to survive.

  20. because most people outside of louisiana, mississippi and alabama dont care about the storm. 955539[/snapback] Someone called one of the radio stations here in DC complaining about the stations coverage of the hurricane. The ass clown was saying that the radio station should be talking about what's going on here in this area and not about something that doesn't affect us. 959053[/snapback] when those gas prices start going up 10...20...30 cents. when the remnants of katrina reach the area, and God forbid spawn a tornado and flash flood advisory, then that fool wil
