    How much money has been sent to aid New Orleans? Where did it go? Mississippi managed not to whine,, I think they pretty much did for themselves..

    They whined far more then you think, and there's still parts of the gulf coast that has damage. Of course, hurricane damage on a US coast is nothing we as a nation haven't been through before...

    ...a whole major city under water and tens of thousands trapped for up to four days without food, medicine, or water. Not so much.

    Just how many years are the rest of the country supposed to support the Katrina "survivors"? I'm so damned sick and tired of the perpetual victim status accorded to those that endured Katrina. Yes, I feel bad for anyone that lost family or their home but we are nearing 5 years after the hurricane and it's time those people waiting for someone to hand them their lives, to start making some efforts to take charge of it themselves.
    Katrina is but ONE disaster to befall this nation and unlike some other disasters people had 5 days warning to get the hell out of the hurricane's path. Many of those sitting on a fucking bridge for days crying that people weren't helping them fast enough, CHOSE to stay there and in effect placed other people's lives in danger because of their stupid choice. And those that want to spend their time blaming the fucking federal government, should save a dose of blame for the lowlife mayor that instead of demanding that people evacuate and providing the transportation out, let the buses sit. Save some blame for the dumbass Governor that seemed paralyzed by her indecision and let people die because of it. Then you can assign the feds their part of the blame for the stupid decisions they made. Enough already. Mississippi and Alabama managed to get recovery efforts underway. The midwest recovered from massive flooding. The south recovers on a regular basis from tornados. The west from fires. It's time for New Orleans to do the same.
