Ready and Wait...

Remember Hurricane Katrina? Remember when we spent millions of dollars and countless man-hours fixing the infrastructure of the city after the storm to prevent catastrophic flooding from happening again? Remember when Bush and the federal government made it a priority to make sure an American city wasn't destroyed a second time by the same mistakes that caused it's first devastation?

Today the NYT is reporting on an Army document that shows that New Orleans is still prone to widespread flooding during large storms.

Priorities, people. The argument that we don't have the money or resources to fix these problems is completely mute when considering the amount of money we throw at certain other programs. Make no bones about it, the US has the ability to end hunger and homelessness, provide decent health care and education to all our children, and provide folks safety from natural disasters. We just don't choose to.
