Ware do we drew the line? Yup ya got some morons out there shooting at the ones who want to help. You also have the ones who say they are there to
help shooting at innocent people. How is it fare to disarm everybody, just to keep the morons from being morons. The truth is you cant keep them
from being morons. If its not a gun its a knife, or bow or other such weapon. They will find a way period. Should the rest be punished because of
that. If my daughter hits someone with a stick I don't punish my son for it by taking away his walking stick. So I ask again ware do you drew the
THe line is drawn by common sense and Faith. Not emotions. Emotions is a concept which has so badly been catered to by the body politic for votes.
People have been conditioned to think emotionally rather than practically or with common sense and Faith. This "preconditioning/brainwashing has
become a cheap standard to get a public to vote or think a certain way on certain issues necessary to keep the body politic in office...not for the
benefit of the public. Since the body politic also pays or finances public education this line of thinking is also taught in public schools.
New Orleans was a textbook example of public education at work....ie...the emotional body politic at work on a publicly educated/
brainwashed/preconditioned people...including the New Orleans police force.
YOu do not see this type of chaos out in rural areas...even in devastating tornados/floods. People band together and work together in very adverse
conditions. Did you see this kind of chaos next door in Mississippi??
Throw in a mix of parasites called the media and you have and encourage a totally messed up situation for ratings. Just like the body politic. It
quickly degenerated into the blame game...so textbook of politics today. It was quite pubescent and immature. Still is.
It is obvoius that they have not solved a certain amount of thier problems by the number of people who have decided not to return to New Orleans. It
is just that this issue has been eclipsed by the media shills for other more current issues for political ratings. In otherwords this is now olde
It is also obvious that those who returned voted in the same bunch back in so that this can be repeated in the next calamity.
Then to solidify this explaination..in the very next Hurricane Rita the media tried to steer it again..for ratings. That General was quite corret
when he indicated that the media were "Stuck on Stupid." Its about time someone called the media what they really are most of the time. I salute
this General for this. We need more leaders like him.
This goes to show you ...in a real calamity dont count on the media or the politicians for help. Be as self sufficient as possible.
As to Morons..it is not illegal to be a moron. It is however illegal to shoot at the fire department and police. I dont approve of this happening. I
also dont approve of the conduct of certain of the police in New Orleans. This too became obvious by the number who quit the job or got fired later. I
do not know that this basic scenerio would not happen here in such a calamity as it has become quite obviouis that our local constabulary has become
"politically correct" .....not effective. A new type of leadership has taken over here.....Politicians..not policemen. Hence my opinion that a
similar pattern would evolve quickly here too in coastal Virginia.
From what I remember seeing on the boob tube and hearing in commentarys on the news ...many of those in New Orleans doing alot of the chaos were those
who were preconditioned to a dogma and religion called "Instant Gratification." This meaning they had made no preperations before the Hurricane hit.
This fingerprint...."instant Gratification" is not a fingerprint of many of the posters on this survival thread. This is a significant difference
Many in New Orleans could make plans and moneys for the games at the very expensive Dome but not for thier survival...including government peoples.
THey should have invested in a better levee system not a Super Dome.
AngryAmerican ..I will remind you of past history in that back in 1969 that very area Boloxi, Pas Christian, Gulfport, Mississippi was hit by one of
the most violent Hurricanes to hit America. Camille. As I recall the winds reached some 200 miles per hour. Intrestingly enough this hurricane spared
New Orleans though it is not far from these areas. My point is that even back then you did not hear alot of the "Victimization" stories so popular
now days. People and politicians banded together to do what needed to be done. No whining and blaming going on. This was the hurricane which made the
stupidity of a Hurricane Party popular in the American Conscience. I post this in contrast to what happened recently in New Orleans.
