“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Confucius say....those who choose to live in fishbowl should not complain when they get wet

I thought we were pretty much finished with the whole Katrina story but it looks like we have to endure still more court-room whining from the locals...

The Army Corps of Engineers can be held liable for flood damage caused by a "hurricane highway," a navigation channel that is believed to have funneled Hurricane Katrina's storm surge into the city, a federal judge ruled Friday.

The city would not have been flooded at all if it had been built above sea level in the first place. Good grief! Look, there's a reason there are no insurance companies willing to insure structures in NO against flood damage. It's because they are 6-10 feet below sea level......right next to the sea. Property owners assume responsibility for their structures if they choose to build in a flood plane without flood insurance. This is just another in a long line of attempts of NO lawyers to extort more money from American taxpayers by whining about how awful Katrina was to the residents of that town, only this time it's the property owners who're trying to squeeze money out of Americans who're smart enough not to build our houses and apartments on flood planes.

I don't even see why anyone would want to try and rebuild New Orleans. I understand that it had alot of history, but all of that history went away when it flooded. That place is dirty and nasty anyway. Needed a good rinsing. And the property owners definitely screwed themselves when they either couldnt get flood insurance and still built a house there or just decided not to get flood insurance. You snooze you lose, not you snooze but its ok American taxpayers will have your back because you are STUPID!
