Don't keep the foot in too long, there...:-)
Well...you are darn right..people are and should be p*ssed off. Where you are wrong is that it was Bush, (the conservative in case you forgot..) who massively cut the funding to the Army Corp. of Engineers just last year to upgrade the levees. It was *also* Bush (yeah..the uhh..conservative again..) who refused funding for a massive emergency plan, which only the Feds could cover the cost of, that was urged by scientists. It was also Bush (yes..umm..the conservative again..aheemm..) who refused to admit that there might be this thing, again proven by scientists with a bit more knowledge in the area than Bush, known as Global Warming. (Did someone say Kyoto??..which of course Bush refused to sign..) The example being, why is the temperature of the Gulf Sea increasing exponentially every year? (along with the melting of the Polar Icecaps, the hole in the ozone layer the size of motherf*cking Antarctica!!, the warm winters we in the North are experiencing...etc??) Never mind the fact the warm Gulf waters created, and may likely create many more, f-4-5 hurricanes. This is only the begining..
p.s. I posted the concept of funding infrastructure above, which you should read, that is also a fundamental tenent among political scientists. (I just happen to be one of them. :-)
