Time to add a few more verses to "When the Levee Breaks"

The proposed 2007 budget for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has been reduced by 47% from pre-Katrina levels.

Good thing that penguins are good swimmers! As for the rest of Louisianians in the New Orleans area, I suggest it's time to start going around in wetsuits with flippers and air tanks, because you're going to need them.

Hey, America -- could you give Louisiana back to the French? Please? At least the Europeans know how to build real levees!

  1. I believe that they can justify cutting the budget of the Army Corps of Engineers by so much because our good friends at Halliburton are more than capable of taking care of the problem.


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
