Many folks still don’t get it.
There was a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico
in August of 2005.
It caused huge damage in Mississippi
but very MODEST damage in New Orleans.
What catastrophically damaged New Orleans
was flooding caused by the failure of the federal
levee system – an engineering failure second
in scope only to Chernobyl.
While people were drowning and on stranded roofs
for days, the federal government with the help
of the US news media went overtime not helping,
but covering its tracks.
The whole sordid story – and why every part
of America should know the real story…because
there are federal levees EVERYWHERE.
