Politicians have prioritized taxpayer funded, high levees to protect the casinos which leaves land above and below susceptible to greater flooding:

"Now (River) is lined with levees, some built by the Army Corps... That funnels water downstream, making the flow stronger and higher. And in years like this, when the levees break or the water overflows them, the flooding is much worse than it would have otherwise been."

12:09, wtf b*llsh*t is that? While you've got that broadbrush loaded, slap on some slop about older men. Hey, make it easy on yourself and make the same statements, but swap out a few words.

Eventually, older men start to feel guilty about how CURMUDGEONLY and DEMANDING they've BEEN TO women over the years. UNDOUBTEDLY, this happens when they lose their LOOKS and their MINDS, and are left with just their rotten ATTITUDE AND ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION!!!
