Funds were cut for fortifying New Orleans against a hurricane…unbelievable

Okay, I’ve read a couple articles on this, and from what I’ve seen, spending to fortify levees and other flood protection for New Orleans has been reduced by about 44% since 2001. Why? To help pay for a war in Iraq and Homeland Security.

This article was in Editor & Publisher. And this one was in And especially check out this one in Salon as well.

Basically, if the funding wasn’t cut on these things, New Orleans may still exist. Think about that and see how it makes you feel. Is that war in Iraq worth THIS?
