I know that this topic is being beat to death right now, but now we are going to see the difference between a Republican State leadership and a Democratic State leadership.
1. Mandatory evacuation orders have already been issued.
2. State and city officials have begun evacuating people who cannot fend for themselves.
3. The governor has recalled all National Guard units from Louisiana to help with the preparations and aftermath.
4. Thousands of refugees from Katrina have already been evacuated.
Governor Perry ain't waitin' on FEMA to start fishin' Texans out of a pool of shit.
BTW...I just saw the weather map and Rita is projected to hit Galveson/Houston Saturday morning as at least a CAT 4, drop to a CAT 3 and roll through Dallas by Sunday afternoon. This storm right now is gusting up over 200 mph and is more powerful than Katrina ever was.
