During Katrina, Government levies failed because government was involved.

Today this “Hurricane Isaac” is mainly just more media and government hype.

The “media” is working hard to keep the GOP convention out of the news. Isaac will be all over the place until the convention ends. What a pain in the ass. Next week, the communist convention in Charlotte will be all the rage.

How can those heartless Republicans possible stay dry and enjoy patting each other on the back giving speeches when so many people will be suffering on the gulf coast? /s

Good point.

I’m here in New Orleans and I know this is more bs, same as with the BP oil spill which was no disaster.

It’s a distraction from the Republican convention, and the way things are going right now, that isn’t such a bad thing. Let the RINOs and Paulians fight it out while everyone is distracted by a rainstorm.

The media got the GOP to cancel 1 day of the convention already.

And what happened with the hurricane “threat” in Tampa. Nothing.

You are right the media will try to find any little thing and blow it up to distract attention from the GOP convention.

Is Isaac just a Hurricane? I had thought it advanced to a 300-mile F5 Tornado.

With Katrina, 3 of my cousins living in New Orleans left when ordered out. Their homes were destroyed. They eventually rebuilt.

With Isaac, they are staying put.

Do not be surprised if they will show while there are speeches giving at the GOP convention, they show a little picture of the Gulf or NOLA when the rain comes.

A friend of ours has a son who lives down there. He won’t leave because he knows his house will be looted. He’s got two rooms full of amps, guitars etc.

Down here, we are praying that is all it does. Experience has taught us that all bets are off until the wind stops blowing. There have been a few that started soft, then bounced back into the Gulf and came back harder, then did it again. If you ain't in it, please don't mock it.

Looters...therein lies the problem. During the F5 aftermath in Joplin,MO. thugs from as far away as StL And Wichita came to loot. Thieving, stealing bastards. Hang everyone of them I say. Or shoot on sight.

That is because the Governor took it apon himself to call off the evacuation. I just hope this hurricane is not like Katrina where it was small and then bam...cat 5 in no time at all. There is still 15 hours before the storm even hits NO.

I’m here in Metairie, right on the other side of the 17th street canal from New Orleans.

There is nothing here nor will anything happen. This is all media and government hype.

The BP oil disaster was a total fabrication. More oil seeps naturally out of the Ocean floor every year than that oil spill. So there have always been tar balls but the media blamed it on evil oil.

What I mean by nothing is that a couple of weeks ago some rain fell and the new Orleans streets flooded because of the government drainage system sucks. I bet there will be less than that this time but the media will lie again.
