American IDPs evacuate New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, 2005. Many complained bitterly that they where treated as an afterthought by President Bush who was slow to respond to the emergency.

With 48 hours notice he can fly our children halfway around the goddamed world to be killed in a war he lied about, but when it comes to helping a city that has nothing he does nothing.”
