It’s the fault of Republican presidents that the city officials are incompetent.
How right you are. Just think of all of that extra weight that would be in New Orleans now, causing the city to sink even further ...
Congressman Hank fears NO might tip over
This very well could be Mitch Landrieu’s version of the 1979 Chicago Blizzard that cost Mayor Mike Bilandic his job.
Live updates: New Orleans seeks quick fix for its faulty drainage system
Gosh, the writer can’t put three paragraphs together without repeating two sentences from an earlier paragraph, but NEVER introduces the very basic “who, what, where, when, WHY “what happened happened” and never, ever addressed the “how” it happened” ...
I think landrieu is term limited.
You’re correct, but I think he wants to be Governor, or President, or something.
“Landrieu’s administration is looking to bring in a private company to temporarily run the Sewerage & Water Board in the aftermath of the growing scandal over the agency’s handling of Saturday’s floods.”
Let me re-word that: The corrupt and incompetent democrats running the S&W system screwed the pooch. Now, it’s time to bring in a private company that donates to the corrupt and incompetent democrats to take over temporarily. This will ensure not only that the problem gets solved, but that corrupt and incompetent democrats will have ample opportunity to skim dollars off of the deal.
PREDICTION: Trump will somehow be held personally accountable for this, Hurricane Katrina, Global Warming, New Coke and Colon Kaepernick not getting signed to a NFL team.
“...five ancient turbines that power the Sewerage & Water Boards system of pumps....”
I wonder how much a modern replacement turbine costs?
Aaaahhhhh....Democrats and fires.
“No. Really. We were OK until that fire. Sure, five of the six turbines were already broke and we don’t have the money to fix them because, well, I needed that money for my condo in Kauai, but that fire was awful. Vote Democrat!”
About the same amount of money spent on city overtime to remove the R. E. Lee and P. T. Beauregard statues.
I agree. You see that a lot on Drudge articles. Very aggravating.
Have any of these corrupt Democrats ever heard of ‘preventive maintenance’.
But more importantly: was there enough ‘diversity’ on the water board?
Nothing, and I mean NOTHING is more important than diversity in a democrat run town.
Flooding is a temporary problem.
looks like they have just lucked out
1.5 inches at the airport a few miles to the west in a little over an hour..but only light-mod rain over the city at this time...
Schedule maintenance for the rainy season.
Dem Plan. Dumb Plan.
...five ancient turbines that power the Sewerage & Water
Boards system of pumps....
An most on the unavailable list. Hell Hurricane season is
here an NO isn’t exactly high and dry.
