I think someone should check on Tom Cruise's group. Don't blame W when aliens are at our door...
I think white people should claim that black people, or "people of color", stole our color and we demand it back. We either want our color back or reparations for all the years we have suffered since our color was stolen.
Color or money, take your choice.
There were not just "200 buses". There were 200 buses in just one photo and Freepers studying the post-Katrina satellite images have counted over 400 buses altogether at other city parking.
At 70 people per bus that is 28,000 people per round trip that could have been taken out of the storm surge area in the 48 hours prior the Katrina striking.
After the storm hit, what makes you think that buses sent from outside of New Orleans could drive through the flooded mess any better than the 145 New Orleans city buses that were parked 1.2 miles away from the Superdome?
Was Scotty supposed to beam the outside buses to the Superdome and them beam them back out so that they would not have to drive through impassable roads?
The time to evacuate those 200,000 low-income people on public buses OUT OF THE STORM SURGE ZONE was BEFORE the Category 4 storm struck.
That was what the Southern Louisiana Evacuation Plan for New Orleans specifically called for.
The Democrat Governor and the Democrat Mayor did NOTHING to carry out that portion of the plan. They left 200,000 low-income resident abandoned and they now blame the Federal Government for not having Scotty beam down a massive logistics effort after a human disaster of their own making.

The eco nuts derailed new leeve construction in New Orleans back in the early 90's. The new leeve system would be completed in 2050. Anybody have reference to that?
"I recall only 1 source that predicted this result as Katrina made the N.E turn so the eye would pass to the east of N.O. While others were once more celebrating "been there, drank to that", and broadcasting the good news that once again N.O. would be spared a direct hit and could relax.
ONLY Joe Bascardi(sp?)with AccuWeather
accurately predicted exactly what was going to happen as the east eyewall passed and all the water pushed up the River into the Lake would be forced into the city when the wind shifted to the south. The levees were not simply breached by high water, they were forced open.
Look at the number of school busses parked in flood water that could have been put into service by the mayor and an evacuation ordered in the projects where so many were plucked.
Corruption: the Levee Board owned airplanes,part of an airport,gambling interests and loaned millions to "friends".
Perhaps it was wise for the current administration to "cut-back" on funding, since it seems little was ever going to be used to build or shore up levees!
I'm sorry to hear about that. I wish you all the best my friend.
Does that mean that this water magically didn't bother the homes of white people who might have lived in those same areas?
