“They need to stop patting themselves on the back”
General Honore speaks
A weaker response than Katrina
We don’t see people on roofs or going without food and water in downtown Houston so the impact of this storm is not fully appreciated.
The deaths in New Orleans were mostly caused by the catastrophic failure of the US Army Corps of Engineers designed, built and maintained levee system.
How many people – including the elderly and handicapped – are stranded in their homes without food or potable water is as yet unknown.
Meanwhile, the government and the moronic news media are engaged in an endless barrage of “happy talk.” The reality is much different. The federal and state response has been weak, uncoordinated and underpowered.
