Katrina and Bush Bashers

Reading an email diatribe (and we don't get enough of them these days) blaming Bush for the Katrina event (based upon a Sidney Blumenthal article?), I wrote the following (or just read James Glassman's column in TCS):

1. Place the responsibility for local issues like protecting the citizens from levee breaks, infrastructure integrity and post-disaster actions with the local communities. To help, we cut federal taxes by 50%, then the City of New Orleans like all other municipalities can pay for what they need because they decide what they need.

2. Getting bread from Washington with all of the interests (state, city and special) clamoring for the hand-outs results in misallocation. Perhaps more private enterprise is better than political bureaucracy.

3. What did the New Orleans budget look like over the past 30 years? I bet they could have shored up the "dikes" quite nicely by now.

4. What would Kyoto have done to stop this event? The world began yesterday and this is the first severe storm of its kind in history.

5. I wonder if any responsibility goes to the prior administration. And the one before that and then the prior one as well.

I dunno, but that same stupid, long, wrong, marxistly-moronic S.B. article was posted in at least two of the comments threads on this blog yesterday. I'm hoping to not see them when I scroll back down to those two entries. Let the damn Guardian set up their own damn blog! Freakin' oxygen thieves!
