RFK Jr and Dan Brown have at least one thing in common: Both are complete and utter morons.
Cuts that hurt
In 2004, President Bush proposed spending less than 20 percent of what the Army Corps of Engineers said was needed for Lake Pontchartrain under the Southeast Louisiana Urban Flood Control Project, or SELA. The SELA program, begun in 1995 under President Bill Clinton, shored up levees and built pumping stations around New Orleans.
Even though 2004 was the worst hurricane season in history, Bush came back in the spring of 2005 with the steepest reduction in hurricane and flood-control funding for New Orleans in history, proposing only one-sixth of what local officials said was needed.
New Orleans paid the price for Bush's disastrous invasion and occupation of Iraq. Thirty-five percent of Louisiana's National Guard, which would normally be assisting in response to this disaster, has been deployed to Iraq.
How many more preventable disasters are we going to stand for before we decide Bush's treasury-draining policy of unilateral invasion and occupation has failed?

I hope the Minneapolis Rag keeps printing this dog vomit, so when the Dummycrats get their collective asses kicked in 2006 we can hear them complain about how they can't get their message out.
Nice f#$@ing message.
