You should flush the whole city.

People who have little to nothing and SOMETIMES trying not to better themselves, have a tragic event like the hurricane happen then expect everyone to give.....give.....give and start badmouthing people when they dont give them enough. 


Sorry just my thoughts

Your thoughts may be remarkably similar to George Carlin's:

For the people of New Orleans...

First I 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 mandatory 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 argument. They said get out... if you didn't, it's your fault, not theirs.  (I 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 Government's 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 has been 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 mandatory 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 dumb ass 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!(It's New Orleans, find a voodoo warrior and put a  curse on them)

#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 of 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 eradicate 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 Wal-Mart 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.
If it works, it's a Fluke.
