N.O. Mayor

Gee, I wonder if he really had to be told they were out of money?

Going to get Fed. Money to pay folks, but no one needs to make any plans until he and his people sign off on it.

Maybe he needs to take a step back, think about the fact that hwen money if given to you, that the lender can say how they want it spent.

I really feel sorry for these folks but their mayor does nothing to help them. He has sent the city P.D. F.D., Medica and other employees on vaction to Vegas but theyc ity is broke.

Who would have thunk it?

"I don't want anybody outside of New Orleans planning nothing as it relates to how we're going to rebuild this city without us signing off on it," Nagin said.

Which means if it can't be sindled or routed into the casinos so he can get a kick-back off of it he don't want it.

Well he still wants the currant ones and the ones to come too. Why limit your earnings?

A question that I'd like to see even asked, let alone him answer, is where is all that money they were given to repair and maintain the levy. There were matching funds that the government would have given them had they spent the money on the dikes and levies. No matching funds went to New Orleans. So where's the money they were given originally?

Well, for starters, I've heard about a yacht basin that was built, and a new lock on the Industrial Canal, to service the Intracoastal Waterway, that was not needed. In fact, when the Corps said that the lock did not meet the mandated cost-benefit ratio, Sen. Landrieu snuck a change into an entirely different spending bell that by law changed the ratio parameters.

Time for the Mayor, the Governor, and Sen. Landrieu to go feed the alligators :angry:

Byron, who has no doubt, that when the next election comes around, these same people will get elected.

That money that Boats is talking about, the Feds would have matched them 1 for 1. Spend the money on the dikes and levies, get one dollar for every dollar you spend. Marc, the Federal Government is not responsible to maintain a local problem. The locals really DON'T want the feds in their business. The term "FBI inspecting every oriface you have comes to mind.

Of course they will Boats. The Bayou State. Where even the dead have a vote.

People, over the last five years (Bush Administration), Lousiana got 1.9 billion dollars for Corps of Engineers work. The majority of that went to the southern part of the state. That money is more than any other state, including California. During the five previous years, prior administration, they got slightly less.

THEY WERE GETTING THE DAMNED MONEY ALL ALONG!

People living in other states simply can't comprehend the level of corruption to be found in the state in general and NOLA in particular. Simply watching the mayor and the governor should be proof enough. The only thing that didn't happen during Katrina, and should have, is to whipe the city clean, so it could be built from the ground up.

You have no idea, how angry about this I am.

Yeah Boats, NO had a well deserved reputation for corruption long before Katrina hit, and this is just going to show exactly how bad it was. Which is a good thing for knowing what the real reasons for why there was that much damage/lack of action and also a bad thing because it could cause people to be leery of giving this time around once they see how things were done in LA. They may not want to give if they think 30% is going to be skimmed right off the top is I guess what I'm saying.

Also in the rush to trip over each other to send money to NO, Congress may have already dropped the ball, the reason 11 in Congress voted against the aid package wasn't because they don't think that NO needs the money, but because the Bill as passed was to get money out as quickly as possible, maybe not as intelligently as possible. There's very little oversight in how the 50-odd billion just approved is going to be spent and that bothers me a lot given what I know of how things work in LA in general and NO in particuliar.

Yeah, but in Congress' opionion, the fastest way to solve any problem is to throw money at it. Billions upon billions of dollars will be needed in aid, but for what? Rebuilding or sending police officers and fire fighters to Las Vegas? This is where FEMA should step in and dictate where the money will be spent. But now FEMA has a huge black eye, so I guess Congress will just hand the money over to Governer Blanco and Mayor Nagin, they will get richer and the corruption will get deeper.
