Editor still wonders~how would anyone else feel if Exquixotic Corps of Engineers had beaten, raped & crucified their daughter while the entire country watched? Remember 8/29? Remember the FLOOD? Please let us keep our cryin'eyes on the real culprits of this crime against our taxpayers: the United States Army Corps of Engineers~~who built these failed levees incompetently in the first place, then tried to lie about it and now continues to try to get away with this maleficence by issuing press releases about the lawsuits (to frame them as frivolous) to divert our attention. Why else would the Corps release the plaintiffs' zip codes? Hell yeah $3,014,170,389,176,410! What price would anyone put on their grandmother drowned by the Corps' admitted product liability? Daughter? Over 1000 other souls killed because of the USACE? How much? Who is going to pay for destroying our homes, spiritual temples and neighborhoods goddamn it? How do we keep this from happening again and again in any backyard in America? Would it not be far more sensible, honest and just to have our US Congress convene the 8/29 Commission and finally get to the bottom of this flood and who in the US Corps of Engineers needs to go to jail over it? We already know who is responsible: USACE. But we need to know Who in that insipid organization did this crime! Apparently crime pays very well for the Exquixotic Corps as we hand them even more money and allow them to continue double-dealing just like any other street corner thug!
