I know that most of the United States thinks that Katrina is like a dead horse that we all keep kicking. I am over Katrina, forgive, forget no, but move on yes.
However, when I see videos like this, the anger with FEMA and the Louisiana State Government all comes back.
WTF do bureaucrats all live in a bubble? Do they even bother checking out what a situation is before making stupid decisions? And, most importantly why were all these donated items sitting in a warehouse for 2-3 years after the event that they were specifically earmarked for.
I still, have yet to understand what happened to the Millions of dollars that people gave to help New Orleans and The Gulf Coast? Well, at least now I understand what happened to some of it.
I’ll just plug as an ending comment that Kathleen Blanco saw fit to give a $700 million contract ( road home money) to a VA based company to administer the Federal dollars that were suppose to go to homeowners that were under insured. I think the State got around $1.5 billion, I’m no super wiz, but even I can see that with 200,000 homes destroyed that the contract amount was going to leave a short fall for most folks.
I will stop, because I can go on and on and on at nausea on the miss- management subject.
Any way this is the CNN report that got me pissed off:
The second video is the one, that really upset me.
