|Once again our Washington representatives have fallen on their faces. In 1993 when the Trade Center was bombed, they did nothing; the end result was 9/11. These people are supposed to represent us. However, they seem to be interested in helping other nations rather than the people who pay their salaries.|
They spend more time working on getting re-elected and working on "pork" items that often waste our money. Like a control tower that couldn't see the runways, two bridges that were not needed and an airport that had no planes going to it.
The dikes in New Orleans were a well-known fact that they could only handle up to a Category 3 storm. This fact was ignored and we have the result. There were no plans by the city of New Orleans, the state of Louisiana or the federal government to handle a storm of this size.
I feel sorry for these unfortunate people. Now watch when politicians start playing the game of "pin the tail on the donkey."
