Someone tell it like it is.

New Orleans mayor Ray Nagin gives an amazing interview to WWL about what’s really happening in his city, and the runaround he’s getting from both state and federal authorities, way up to the presidential level.

Such honesty in politics only comes from frustration and desperation at a level that can only come from a government that would rather focus on a militaristic barbaric foreign conquering policy than problems here at home.

“i’m probably gonna get in a whole bunch of trouble…we authorized 8 billion dollars to go to iraq lickety quick…after 9/11 we gave ther prez unprecedented powers Lickety Split … you mean to tell me that a place that is so unique when you mention New Orleans anywhere in the world peoples eyes light up…thousands of people that have died thousands more that are dying…that we can’t figure out a way to authorize the resources that we need? come on man”

Listen to the interview


Seriously. Listen to it.

And then donate some funds to the Red Cross. Whatever you can spare.

When are we going to do something about this disaster of an administration?
