Amazing! A year and a half later and we still see the same ignorant, uninformed, outrageous, comments from the same ignorant, uninformed buffoons on these threads. Where do you people get your information? All of New Orleans is not corrupt. We are not all on welfare.Crime ( murders ) happens only in a few neigborhoods involving drug dealers.Same as in your own towns. Nowhere near all of us are sitting on our butts waiting for Uncle Sam to rebuild our homes. Sure, congress appropriated billions of dollars for rebuilding , where is the money? RED TAPE! They still have it! They won’t let go of it. It doesn’t do us any good sitting in HUD’s bank accounts in DC. You say, “why don’t they help themselves without the fed’s money?”. How can we when the entire infrastructure of the city was destroyed. Half of the city’s tax base is gone. Why do I bother? You people would rather send your hard earned money to rebuid Iraq where they try to kill those there trying to help them then to help your own fellow tax paying American citizens in South Louisiana.You people have no clue as to what you’re talking about. To hell with all of you.
