Please forgive me, DUmmies. I figured that even you folks wouldn't politicize Hurricane Katrina. Well, apparently I underestimated you as can be seen in this DUmmie THREAD titled, "Looters."

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=104x4498450#4498505

It turns out that the DUmmies are ANGRY at the National Guard for keeping people from looting. The DUmmie author of this thread presents that the absurd case that people loot mainly for food. Um, no. Sorry DUmmie but looters are opportunists that will mostly loot high ticket items like electronic equipment, jewelry, etc.. Food is actually rather LOW on their loot list. Why? Because emergency shelters and relief organizations will give food FREE to people in hurricane disaster areas. However, let us now watch as the DUmmies, namely undergroundpanther turn this whole issue of preventing looting into a politicized class warfare scenario. As usual, the waterlogged DUmmie postings are in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, who survived Hurricane Katrina when it was merely in a Category One stage is in the [brackets]:

Looters

[Uh-Oh. Stand by for Class Warfare Idiocy based on Hurricane Katrina care of the DUmmies.]

The fact the national guard is keeping people from FOOD shows we are NOT living in a democracy,the Rich people's THINGS must be protected from starving people!!Remember the french revolution,the rich make sure the lower class suffers and is desperate,the middle class is scared of poor people,the soldiers are bribed obedient and loyal,. That is how they say rich and on our backs.Fuck all the corporate pigs. F*cking assholes!Disaster shows us the true use of our military is to PROTECT PROPERTY of corporations above human life, to keep the rich secure people DIE.

[SNIFF! Looters have RIGHTS too! Damn the National Guard people for keeping them from exercising their sacred right to loot.]

I say Eat the rich people if they will not let you get food.Roast them on a spit and share the bounty.They have been fed on the finest organic foods.*sarcasm*

[DUmmie undergroundpanther, I believe you have a dinner date with Hannibal Lecter.]

Damn I am pissed. Let the people EAT..What happened soldier to defending life? Life comes before property IF you are not a sociopath scum bag.Don't obey wealthy scumbags posing as"leaders".Sheesh.

[You want the people to EAT? Then just show up at an emergency shelter. If not, relief food will be arriving on trucks. Somehow I don't think the search for carbs is the big issue with looters. It's more like the search for cash. But now that you presented some great comedy material, DUmmie undergroundpanter, let us read more of your laugh DUmmie undergroundpanther.]



Most of us live...
...two weeks from cannibalism. Looting for food is trivial in comparison.I'd agree that it's a little soon for that, but if the Nat'l Guard isn't in there feeding everyone very soon, rest assured that the people will "find" food themselves.


[If it was a choice between dining on Helen Thomas and starvation, I would definitely opt for the latter option.]

And A few hot plasma TV's
Sold at a pawn shop ,could make for a couple months of prepaid existance..like food and rent an security deposit while you move out and look for work in a new place swarming with other refugees also looking for work while out of town.And in this shitty republican economy getting work is not so easy now..Didya ever consider THAT might be a reason for stealing plasma TV's?


[Would that be the same reason as stealing a Bose Wave Radio?]

Theft
Is humane if it is the only thing you can do to get the formula you need to feed a child.


[The only reason why the looters take the plasma TVs is because they are blocking the baby formula.]

F*ck the wealthy's property..Look if I can't find a way to survive in coming weeks of the aftermath without taking it.. I'll take..Welfare checks will not be coming on time dude. Have you ever been desperate or not?With that haughty tone,I guess you have never been desperate and dreading the future with no way out of a dire situation before.

[Things could be worse, DUmmie undergroundpanther. Perhaps your parent's basement will be flooded out, thus preventing you from posting your comedy material on the Web.]

This is looting for greed, not survival. It's BS and it should be stopped by any force required. These people are making a bad situation FAR worse.

[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]

If I had a baby
and I was on welfare and my house was gone,and the mail was not going to be running for a long time,damn straight I'd take food for me and my kid,diapers,and some more to give to others,I'd take stuff to make a shelter with,garbage bags utensils,blankets,a radio( for news) and something dry to sleep on, a crib maybe,flashlights,candles,lighters,fuel, batteries,water and ice,medicine..fresh clothes,sunscreen(all the trees are gone) tampons birth control pills,oh and I would take money and valuables because you can buy shit or trade for you need from others with it once the stores are guarded.Because the checks would be delayed,a glitch in the comptuer system can delay welfare checks for months, So a ruined SS building could delay it much longer.People with no money need to survive somehow. Don't get haughty and moralistic here.Things change in the way you think about"property" and the woes of rich folks losses.. when you need to survive.


[Don't forget about looting that all-important plasma TV, DUmmie undergroundpanther. It is CRUCIAL for survival.]

The humane thing to do would be to make sure the people ALL OF THEM have access to food, shelter,a place to sleep, baby care items,medicine and water/ice first.GIVE IT AWAY,Let People take it.Let go of the game of ownership and class because it is hindering people 's survival..

[How's this for a humane thing to do, DUmmie undergroundpanther? I find your parent's basement and I steal their plasma TV.]

That is funny calling me rich. I am far from it, but I do respect other peoples property. If during a disaster someone came to me and ASKED ME NICELY for some supplies and I could spare some I would be more than happy to hand them out.

You people have no compassion. Extreme times call for extreme measures. There was a severe heat advisory here yesterday. I can relate to the plight of our bretheren. I'm entitled to a much bigger TV. Should I have to suffer in my air conditioned house with a puny 27" TV? Of course not. Should I have to pay for such critical sustenance? Hell, no. I should be able to go out and take one because I'm inconvenienced in some small way. We must all work together. After all, no way I can move such a large TV all by myself. I need at least 2 or 3 guys to help. I'm sure they're in the same plight, so they will also need large TV's. We shall also need someone with a big truck, because I want a TV bigger than my car.

Though, these people do deserve some consideration. It's not like they're all looting because they're criminals. Some really just want food and water. Those people are somehow different because they need what they're stealing. Since we can't tell who is who, I recommend we start a campaign to help these people in a way we can all understand. Bullets For Looters(*) is the name of my new project. Please contribute if you can.

(*) Bullets may show minor wear marks. Brass, primers and powders not included. Some assembly required. Delivery prepaid in single unit lots.

BINGO.

Looters are opportunists, not people in need. Relief efforts were being planned and prepared for even before the storm hit. Nobody down there is going to starve. Very few are in any real danger of dehydration.

If they can get to a store to loot, they can get to the many relief areas being set up to give people aid.

Liberals are complete idiots. And crap like they are spewing in that DU thread is EXACTLY the reason they should never be given power or any serious consideration.

15. Won't the stores count it as an insurance write-off anyway?


It's not like it's stuff they can turn around and sell if it's been in or near that toxic soup. They'll write it off on the insurance as destroyed, so someone might as well get some use out of it.

If my yarn shop were up and running and something like that happened, I would have to write it all off as destroyed. No one would buy the yarn after it's been in that "water" (and whatever all's in that stuff). If someone wanted it, I'd already be getting money for it from the insurance I've paid through the nose for, so they'd be welcome to it. Heck, I'd even offer them a job for coming back and cleaning out when the waters recede.

I guess the insurance company has an unlimited supply of money that it gets from the money tree to hand out to people. Fucking morons. Everytime something like this happens they charge everyone a little more to recoup the loss.

Liberals have no concept of absolute right and wrong. Everything is relative.

They remind me of communist party leaders. Condemn private ownership, everything belongs to the people. All the while enjoying the luxuries of life while the people live in squalor.

The ironic thing is this same poster defending the looters will do nothing to help those in need, yet condemn the rest of us not doing "our share". And they would be the first to call 911 when the thugs come in to take their TV.

I'd shoot them for stealing food even if they were starving to death. It's not their property, they can beg for help. But if they take it by force, the property owners should respond with force.

these people have no sense of personal responsibility.

As if people are so in need after 24 hours that they are going to die or something if they don't fucking steal tv's.

Then why is it whenever you see film footage of looters, they never look like they are starving? And they seem to be stealing non-edible stuff?

DING DING DING DING!

Being prepared is wrong!

But completely ignoring all social order and law in the aftermath of a disaster is perfectly OK!!

The DUers are all just nutjobs who want the opportunity to just take whatever they think they deserve without anyone having the means to object.

If that isn't an elitist attitude, I don't know what one is.

The fact that so many socialists and anarchists admire the French revolution scares me.


That especially rational post about eating the "rich fat cats" to avoid starvation was amusing.


And notice how the first poster uses "middle class" and "rich people" interchangeably? Oh wait, it's not those people, it's the 'corporations'.
Link Posted: 8/30/2005 6:30:28 AM EDT
How any of those hollier than thou DUers could side with the looters just proves how the 'woe is me' influences their 'doctrine'. If they don't have it, they'd rather have some give something to them than pony up and work for it. I guess 'looting' is working hard in their minds.

Look at it this way, consider it zombie training. Figure looters are moving slowly because of the water, so you won't have to "lead'em as much".
Link Posted: 8/30/2005 6:30:46 AM EDT
DU is as predictable as ever. They can justify just about any deviant human behavior. Especially if they can keep a sanitary distance and it isn't directly happening TO THEM.

Looting? What looting? Oh, you mean that....justifable readjusting of the social and racial inbalance caused by years of a heartless republican government that has codified the Jim Crow policies of years past?

Power to the people! They need it to make sure that Plasma TV they stole actually works!

Stay tuned for the next adventure of Aqualooter and his band of Merry Men...
