The moral of the Hurricane Katrina story?
Socialism Kills those it claims to help. See article below.
I love the line that every time you have the government wanting to help people, just insert screw and you've got an accurate read of what will occur.
Moral poverty cost blacks in New Orleans

Say a hurricane is about to destroy the city you live in. Two questions:
1. What would you do?
2. What would you do if you were black?
Sadly, the two questions don't have the same answer.
For better or worse, Hurricane Katrina has told us the answer to the second question. If you're black and a hurricane is about to destroy your city, then you'll probably wait for the government to save you.
This was not always the case. Prior to 40 years ago, such a pathetic performance by the black community in a time of crisis would have been inconceivable. The first response would have come from black men. They would take care of their families, bring them to safety, and then help the rest of the community. Then local government would come in.
No longer. When 75 percent of New Orleans residents had left the city, it was primarily immoral, welfare-pampered blacks that stayed behind and waited for the government to bail them out. This, as we know, did not turn out good results.

I AM DEPLORABLE.
NEVER CRIMINAL HILLARY (S-NY)
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
You are a laugh riot. You are so typical it is pathetic. You are COMPLETELY devoid of the ability to say...yeah...you know what...the leaders of those communities MASSIVELY screwed the pooch.
Instead you cling to...it was all Bush's fault...and AFTER the mess...he should have swooped in and rescued everyone...like...HE should have had a plan...even though you have NO expectation of the DEMOCRATS (AH...so THAT explains it...) of actually having a plan...maybe having made a few phone calls to house folks in armories in the capital or other more northerly cities...college campus fieldhouses...etc...you know...like the Governor and mayors of coastal Mississippi towns did.
Like officials in Houston, Atlanta's civic leaders put out the welcome mat for people displaced by Katrina. Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin publicly welcomed them. Government and charity agencies in the metropolitan area worked to ease their transition.
Franklin says she invited evacuees because "but for the grace of God, there go I."
"People have always come here," says Franklin, a Philadelphia native. "It seemed to me that the people moving from the Gulf Coast were no different than many of us who move here. Many of them were working people, they were talented people. They wanted another chance. Atlanta's a city that's growing anyway. Why not invite them here?"
This is just sad. I swear...sometimes I read comments on here from liberal minded posters and I SWEAR they are conservative trolls INTENTIONALLY looking stupid to smear other liberals. I hope thats the case with you.
