Have you ever evacuated when warned by the authorities? Almost every year we get warnings and thousands of people evacuated. I did it myself with my family and friends. However, it costs money to evacuate and many thousands of New Orleaneans did not have the resources to evacuate. Thousands took refuge in the Superdome and the roof gave away. FEMA was supposed to bring them food and water but then heckuvajob brownie was busy having dinner in Baton Rouge restaurants. By the way, where was dickie boy cheney when New Orleans was inundated? he was on vacation... did not even bother to cut his vacation and come back to work. The veep is supposed to help the prez when he needs help and I am sure during a crisis chimp needed some help. PLEASE STOP BLAMING THE VICTIMS OF A NATIONAL DISASTER OF EPIC PROPORTIONS. NEW ORLEANS WAS FLOODED BECAUSE THE FEDERAL FLOODWALLS AND LEVEES BROKE. DON'T YOU UNDERSTAND THAT? Some people love the land they were born in and enjoys the heritage their neighborhood has to offer. Thousands are living in their gutted homes waiting for a FEMA trailer. They are working to get their homes rebuilt. FEMA is there to help the victims, but they have been utterly useless. Did you know that FEMA paid the same price for new roofs for temporary tarps? This was paid to the big contractors with cozy ties to the chimpboy. The guys doing the work were local roofers who got paid literally pennies while these fat cats licked off the cream.
