Hurricane Katrina Commission

From Foxnews...Lawmakers Scuffle Over Katrina Oversight

House Speaker, Dennis Hastert, wants a "bipartisan" committee to investigate the affairs of Hurricane Katrina. Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader, wants an independant committee similar to the 9/11 Commission.

They're both nuts.


Those who are at fault won't take responsibility, aka the local, state, and federal leaders, including Congress. These so-called 'commissions' won't solve a thing. They're a waste of taxpayer dollars.

Now we're on the verge of another disasater: Hurricane Rita.
The dykes in Galveston, Texas are only 17 feet high.
Does this sound familiar?
Maximum sustained winds of Rita have been recorded at 215 mph.
Do you believe 17 foot high dykes will hold against those kinds of winds?
I don't think so.

So while Congress is busy babbling about Katrina, they better be ready for the impending disaster of Rita. Stop the finger pointing and be ready to serve those in need.

Side note:
Don't think I'm going to let Nancy Pelosi off easy here. I'm not. However, I'm even more disgusted by Louisiana's Governor, Kathleen Blanco. She's one-third the guilty party. Worse, she has yet to take responsibility for her lack of actions.

My suggestion, Ms. Blanco? Shut your mouth or offer an apology. The people of Louisiana deserve it.
