    Yeah, that's what happens when the government spends more money, hires more workers to stand around so the numbers look good for the politicians bringing jobs, cuts necessities to reduce costs, and still goes 21 million over budget, because no one is really paying for any of it anyway.

    We could always make 100's of thousands more homeowners buy flood insurance, to cover costs when the government screws up and floods their homes. It seems to be the solution the government came up with, and what they were willing to do to address the problem.

    They built an Interstate (US Department of Transportation). They didn't put in the drainage the plans called for (it wasn't a mistake in planning). They built it along the edge of a swamp (swamps have water in them already, and the swamp they built it next to was drainage for a good portion of the State). So the Interstate then becomes a very long 5' high dam on the edge of a swamp, that backs up 5' of water for 930 square miles, and subsequently everything else that feeds into that 930 square miles.

    It's not the rain's fault, not global warming's fault, not the homeowner's fault. It's the fault of the people in the government who made a stupid mistake (not that you should really expect anything different from them).

    You missed one trick you didn't point out the payback from federal, state and local patronage deals

    you don't want any interstate highways?
    wrong drainage?
    can you prove this?
    the interstates/etc are good for the majority
    the people voted for that government, so it's the people's vault
    most people want the interstates/etc
    tough luck on those [ stupid enough ] that build in flood areas

    I also left out the fact that you cannot pass out speeding tickets on the 18 mile bridge that crosses the river basin on Interstate 10 (the other place it crosses).

    If you think the government not following the plans they came up with is a good idea and not a stupid mistake, then there isn't much I could convince you of. If you build a house that isn't in a flood area, until the stupid government builds a dam around your house making it a flood zone, that is tough luck, because the government will never take responsibility for their mistakes.

    (edit)
    Sorry Will, it's kind of off topic, but I'm not cussing. :21:
