  •  Meanwhile Homeland Sec. Stiffs Port of Oakland (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    CParis, phonegery

    Dept. of Homeland Security has put the Port of Oakland, 4th largest container shipping port in thenation, at the bottom of priority for anti-terrorism funds. Nothing our congresswoman says will change their minds. So we have lost out on $14 million we need to screen for bioterrorism and whatever else (dirty bombs?).

    Because a bunch of lefty Bay Area voters don't really need money for anti-terrorism measures, nope. But $20 million to celebrate a victory that didn't happen? Sure, sure.

    Katrina's aftermath was no accident. This country's leadership is stupid, misguided, venal and criminally negligent.
