New Orleans rant!
From an anonymous observer:
Been sitting here with my ass in a wad, wanting to speak out about the bullshit going on in New Orleans.
For the people of New Orleans... First we would like to say, Sorry for your loss.
With that said, Let's go through a few hurricane rules: (Unlike an earthquake, we know it's coming)
#1. A manditory evacuation means just that... Get the hell out. Don't blame the
Government after they tell you to go. If they hadn't said anything, I can see
the arguement. They said get out... if you didn't, it's your fault, not theirs.
(We don't want to hear it, even if you don't have a car, you can get out.)
#2. If there is an emergency, stock up on water and non-perishables. If you
didn't do this, it's not the governments fault you're starving.
#2a. If you run out of food and water, find a store that has some. (Remember,
shoes, TV's, DVD's and CD's are not edible. Leave them alone.)
#2b. If the local store is too looted of food or water, leave your neighbor's tv
and stereo alone. (See # 2a) They worked hard to get their stuff. Just because
they were smart enough to leave during a manditory evacuation, doesn't give you
the right to take their stuff... it's theirs, not yours.
#3. If someone comes in to help you, don't shoot at them and then complain no
one is helping you. I'm not getting shot to help save some dumbass who didn't
leave when told to do so.
#4. If you are in your house that is completely under water, your belongings are
probably too far gone for anyone to want them. If someone does want them, Let
them have them and hopefully they'll die in the filth. Just leave! (For
goodness sakes, it's New Orleans, find a voodoo warrior and put a curse on
#5. My tax money should not pay to rebuild a 2 million dollar house, a sports
stadium or a floating casino. Also, my tax money shouldn't go to rebuild a city
that is under sea level. You wouldn't build your house on quicksand would you?
You want to live below sea-level, do your country some good and join the Navy.
#6. Regardless what the Poverty Pimps Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton want you to
believe, The US Government didn't create the Hurricane as a way to erradicate
the black people of New Orleans; (Neither did Russia as a way to destroy
America). The US Government didn't cause global warming that caused the
hurricane (We've been coming out of an ice age for over a million years).
#7. The government isn't responsible for giving you anything. This is the land
of the free and the home of the brave, but you gotta work for what you want.
McDonalds and Walmart are always hiring, get a damn job and stop spooning off
the people who are actually working for a living.
President Kennedy said it best... "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask
what you can do for your country."
Thank you for allowing me to rant.
We Fall Down But We Get Up
