Letting New Orleans Die

While $300 billion is a perfectly acceptable amount to allocate to the invasion of a sovreign nation, apparently spending $32 billion to protect what's left of New Orleans so that it might have to chance to permanently rebuild is just too much for the US budget to bear.

All we can do, as Ray in Austin recommends, is to write our elected representatives. And throw Bush & Co. out of office.

Let's do all we can do.

It's funny; no one has ever accused the so-called "compassionate" conservatives of actually being compasssionate.

Nope, it's just that they're conserving their compassion until such a time as it's really needed. As to when that time is, I have no idea. Perhaps when the end of the world is truly upon us?
