Mods, if this turns into a racist thread then lock it. I predict we can stay 4 pages above a lock.

WARNING: PLUG IN BRAIN BEFORE STARTING MOUTH.

Here's the linky: www.livejournal.com/users/interdictor/46545.html?view=3522001#t3522001[

Scroll down a half or third page.

And, no I ain't a 'liberal." Don't EVEN go there.

I firmly believe that we need to look reality in the teeth and then to bite first, not back.

Here's the cut and paste:


Iam Pissed
(Anonym\ous)
2005-09-03 05:22 (link)
I am a 65 yr. old, white, republican, male, pissed taxpayer.

First I am pissed at the racial crap. Anybody that can look at a human being in torment and care about pigment ain't worth a damn. Has anybody noticed that most of the first responders are white and most of the victims are not? Do not even think about telling me that crap in person.

Second I am pissed at the inconceivably impotent efforts by our Federal Government. I am absolutely furious. I just watched on TV a baby that has been in the convention center for SIX DAYS with inadequate EVERYTHING. I am a real hard old man and I felt tears roll down my face. The Mayor of New Orleans ought to be horse whipped. The Governor of Lousiana ought be tarred and feathered. The President of the mightiest nation on earth ought to be cleaning toilets.

I am one of them well off middle class whites that pays a LOT of taxes. I count it a privledge. I take pride in the response of my home state, Texas, to the refugees.

It ain't about race, it is about stupid and incompetent and arrogant.

If the thin blue line is REALLY this inept, we are ALL in for a lot of misery.

Why did he bring race up to begin with? He could have made his comments without mentioning race. When you do that you are either a racist yourself or trying to bait someone.

Do we really want a president that micro-manages right down to a levee system?

1. The levee that failed wasn't one that had been neglected due to inadequate funding.

2. The rescue mission that never should have happened materialized in three days. Three days from levee failure and the troops come rolling in.

3. The Troglodites that looted and burned their own city were there before the hurricane. They didn't just wake up one day and say, "hey, I think I will go rape, murder and loot today".

4. If all these "experts" that KNEW BEFOREHAND that their town was prone to flooding would have taken the precaution to be prepared, they wouldn't need to be evacuated.

5. If you're going to be stupid then you'd better be tough.

Don't be dissin? Sure thing, champ. I won't be dissin. But I will call a link to a worthless comment on a damned livejournal a total waste of time. Not to mention, it speaks volumes about the sort of person you are if you find that link interesting or insightful.

Ok heres the scenerio:

President sends in troops of some sort to regain security and get the straglers out of the city where they can get food water and shelter. The looters now armed resist and are quickly brought down by troops in gunfights. Word spreads and riots ensue in other citys.

I dont think Id rush into anything with a bunch thugs walking around armed. Especially with the puplic eye glued to the news. Bush loses either way bottom line.
