What strange dogs

I'm sitting here blog-surfing and eating in-the-shell peanuts.
The dogs want some (of course).

The Black one shells hers-REALLY, but the white one eats his whole.
Just updating my blogroll

I'm adding- in no particular order (except that it's how I found them):

A Texan abroad, she's in France, so she needs your condolences.

Lobo Walk

Say Anything

Six MeatBuffet

Utterly Boring

As with anyone generally, I feel comfortable with those of like mind. Y'all know which side I fall down on, so you know what is probably in store if you click on them.

That is all.

Have a good night and let your significant other know you care for them.

Alright, I'm trying to stay away from Katie,


You read something and you start wondering, , ,

By Peter Grier | Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor

WASHINGTON – Rhode Island has more than 100 evacuees in Navy housing. Ohio has 20 in Red Cross shelters, plus almost 2,000 staying with relatives or friends. California has 807 families in hotels, while Massachusetts is putting up some 200 individuals at an old military base on Cape Cod.

States on the edge of the devastated area have larger numbers, of course, with 50,000 in Arkansas and 200,000 in Texan shelters and homes.

Two weeks after it blew through the US Gulf Coast, it's clear that hurricane Katrina has resulted in the largest displacement of Americans in 150 years - if not the largest ever. The scale is monumental. It's as if the entire Dust Bowl migration occurred in 14 days, or the dislocations caused by the Civil War took place on fast-forward.

Many evacuees are putting down roots in new areas and say they'll never return. Others face months of a temporary existence before they can go home. Whatever they do, the nation may never be the same, as a smaller New Orleans rises up from its ruins, and bits of Creole culture are seeded from East coast to West.

What will these people turn into? How will they be remembered 50 years from now?
We have the "Okies"- hard working poor folks displaced by the Dust Bowl
We have the "Carpet Baggers"thievess who came to scam the southerners after the Civil War
We have the "Pikers"- with their questionable ethics spreading throughout the west after the Civil War
We have the "Chinee"- who built the western part of the continental Railroad under virtual slave conditions.

So given the fact that most of the population of N'awlens was brought up on graft, corruption and kick-backs- just to get a good job(if they worked)- how are they going to have us remember them by?
What are we going to call out next , , , ummmm, , , historical blip?

Reporting to you for England

I got off the phone with father-in-law Trainwreck. Over in the UK they're not exactly sure how widespread the Katy damage is. I told him the physical damage was probably as large or larger than the entire UK. The death toll isn't what it was guestimated to be, but we won't know for a while.

Their take on it is that the state and local govt' fell on it's @ss and FEMA is doing what it's normally done. They can't understand why we're not putting as much resources into recovering bodies as we are saving lives, though. I told him it's a matter of priorities, save the living first- then worry about the dead.

Even our government is kinda stretched thin because of the size of the problem. He tries to understand, and even though he's been here still has trouble realizing just how BIG America is.
This just in. . .

From Garfield Ridge

Via CNN where else?
That ALGore has airlifted 2 planeloads of refugees from N'awlines.

KNOXVILLE, Tennessee (AP) -- Al Gore helped airlift some 270 Katrina evacuees on two private charters from New Orleans, acting at the urging of a doctor who saved the life of the former vice president's son.

Gore criticized the Bush administration's slow response to Katrina in a speech Friday in San Francisco, but refused to be interviewed about the mercy missions he financed and flew on September 3 and 4.

However, Dr. Anderson Spickard, who is Gore's personal physician and accompanied him on the flights, said: "Gore told me he wanted to do this because like all of us he wanted to seize the opportunity to do what one guy can do, given the assets that he has."

An account of the flights was posted this week on a Democratic Party Web page
(AHEMMM ->me)

"The situation was dire and becoming worse by the minute -- food and water running out, no power, 4 feet of water surrounding the hospital and ... corpses outside," Simon wrote.

Gore responded immediately, telephoning Kline and agreeing to underwrite the $50,000 each for the two flights,

Most critically, Gore worked to cut through government red tape, personally calling Gov. Phil Bredesen to get Tennessee's support and U.S. Transportation Secretary Norm Mineta to secure landing rights in New Orleans.

I'm kinda curious here, was sombody hearding these corpses around so that in a city the size of San Antonio, everyone had to wade around less than 300 152 of them?
I thought that everything was under water, How can airliners land in standing water? AND political(D) favoritism is still alive and well when it comes to the Big Easy- I see.
Also, I'm not surprised, it being CNN and all, that NO mention was made that a DEMOCRATIC governess refused to let the Red Cross distribute needed supplies.
HEY Grandpa!

What's for supper?

Well, I just took the brisket out that was thinking about it's rub all night long. . .

Wrapped it nice and good, stuck it in the oven, and it'll be done at around 4PM with Cottage fries and Succotash.


It's done!

Saturday, September 10, 2005


According to Dean Esmay I could put down some kind of College degree I never earned, since nobody checks out a resume anyway. Stupid me, I never thought that I could get away with something like that. I always thought that "hey, there are records they can check- they'll know I'm lying".

I guess not. Maybe my next resume update will include a VoTech degree, and I can build on that!
Pretty soon I can be the next Ward Churchill- except that I don't clam a bogus Indian heritage (guess that goes along with the non-check on the education), and I'm not a flaming anti-American hatemonger.

I dunno, if I overstuff pad my resume, and get into the kind of company I want- they WOULD check, not like say the US Govt', Baush and Lomb, Veritas software or some other fly-by-night company who just assumes that what you put down, you have.
Sure I padded my resume, if you don't your cutting yourself out of some good jobs; besides most employers KNOW you expanded on your experience or education a little- that's a given.

What I find so surprising is that nobody even makes a call to the college and asks "Hey, we have this guy person that says he graduated from y'all- can you find any records on him? Thanks, there's a $2000 debit card thank-you in the mail for your trouble."
I can lie all over my resume (for a high profile job) and I'd get less scrutiny than I do running a $120,000 power auger.
From the mailbox

I just couldn't resist sharing this one:

There's always one.
This has got to be one of the funniest things in a long time. I think this guy should have been promoted, not fired.
This is a true story from the Word Perfect Helpline, which was transcribed from a recording monitoring the customer care department. Needless to say
the Help Desk employee was fired; however, he/she is currently suing the Word Perfect organization for "Termination without Cause". Actual dialogue of a
former WordPerfect Customer Support employee. (Now I know why they record these conversations!):

Operator: "Ridge Hall, computer assistance; may I help you?"
Caller: "Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect."
Operator: "What sort of trouble??"
Caller: "Well, I was just typing along, and all of a sudden the words went away."
Operator: "Went away?"
Caller: "They disappeared."
Operator: "Hmm. So what does your screen look like now?"
Caller: "Nothing."
Operator: "Nothing??"
Caller: "It's blank; it won't accept anything when I type."
Operator: "Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out??"
Caller: "How do I tell?"
Operator: "Can you see the C: prompt on the screen??"
Caller: "What's a sea-prompt?"
Operator: "Never mind, can you move your cursor around the screen?"
Caller: "There isn't any cursor: I told you, it won't accept anything I type."
Operator: "Does your monitor have a power indicator??"
Caller: "What's a monitor?"
Operator: "It's the thing with the screen on it that looks like a TV. Does it have a little light that tells you when it's on??"
Caller: "I don't know."
Operator: "Well, then look on the back of the monitor and find where the power cord goes into it. Can you see that??"
Caller: "Yes, I think so."
Operator: "Great. Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if it's plugged into the wall.
Caller: "Yes, it is."
Operator: "When you were behind the monitor, did you notice that there were two cables plugged into the back of it, not just one??"
Caller: "No."
Operator: "Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the other cable."
Caller: "Okay, here it is."
Operator: "Follow it for me, and tell me if it's plugged securely into the back of your computer."
Caller: "I can't reach."
Operator: "Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is??"
Caller: "No."
Operator: "Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over??"
Caller: "Oh, it's not because I don't have the right angle - it's because it's dark."
Operator: "Dark??"
Caller: "Yes - the office light is off, and the only light I have is coming in from the window."
Operator: "Well, turn on the office light then."
Caller: "I can't."
Operator: "No? Why not??"
Caller: "Because there's a power failure."
Operator: "A power... A power failure? Aha, Okay, we've got it licked now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing stuff your computer came in??"
Caller: "Well, yes, I keep them in the closet."
Operator: "Good. Go get them, and unplug your system and pack it up just like it was when you got it. Then take it back to the store you bought it from."
Caller: "Really? Is it that bad?"
Operator: "Yes, I'm afraid it is."
Caller: "Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them??"
Operator: "Tell them you're too f*%king stupid to own a computer."
Ok, I don't know were to go with this Hydrogen powered bike

I saw this bike in my LAST Popular Mechanics (I moved in April, and this is the first one I've seen since, AND they made sure it was in it's special cover letting me know that I wasn't going to get another) and I wanted to know a little more, so I "YAHOO'D" it (I'm not a Lib, so I don't google any more than I have to).

I searched for ENV Hydrogen power and found a page about it.

Like I said, I'm not sure which way to go. If you don't know about Hydrogen supplies, it sounds pretty good:

Fuel Cell Technology Facts

* Fuel cells provide point of consumption power generation, removing the costs and power losses associated with the transmission and distribution of electricity.
* Fuel cells can be built incrementally to match demand and are equally efficient at both small and larger scale.
* Fuel cells have higher energy conversion efficiencies than most other technologies: 45-55% of energy converted to electricity.
* Fuel cells are capable of generating heat as well as power: in this combined heat and power mode (CHP mode), energy conversion efficiencies exceed 90%.
* Fuel cells have dynamic load-following characteristics and can be built modularly for added reliability. They have none of the intermittency issues affecting wind and solar technologies.
* Fuel cells are easy to maintain as they have no moving parts.
* Fuel cells produce zero emissions if hydrogen is used as a feedstock, and significantly reduced emissions if hydrogen is produced from reformation of hydrocarbon feedstocks.
* Fuel cells are modular. Effectively, you can keep adding to the sandwich up to an optimal configuration. At this point other stacks can simply be bolted on – and on and on! A fuel cell the size of a toaster could power a typical domestic UK home.
* The USA wants to see hydrogen fuel cell cars on US roads by 2015 and has pledged to spend more than $1.5 bn (£900m) over five years to help develop the technology.

And scientifically it is probably a good idea, BUT if you know how you get the hydrogen you look at several other points.
  1. Hydrogen is dangerous- more dangerous than natural gas. Does the name Hindenburg ring a bell? ( OK, now that I have the MSM required scare the chit-out-of-you done) There really isn't ALL that much there, so I can't see much of a problem.
  2. The thing is, that Hydrogen power sounds kinda like "Free energy"- if you don't know where it comes from. (I'm not sure I NEED to go into this, since if you're reading this on a computer you should know your basic science. BUT) You get Hydrogen from water! Yes, it's the "H" in H2O. To separatete the "H" from the "O" you simply boil it with electricity! WOW, the wonders of science. The problem comes with the next point.
  3. The cost of producing Hydrogen. On a large scale it could be cost prohibitiveve, since it takes more energy to split the water moleculeses than it (the fuel cell) can produce. It also makes your electric meter spin like a top.
  4. Range. From the article, it seems limited- like the battery powered vehicles. 100 Mi. at 5oMPH? Tim Taylors lawn mower could beat that.
So, Like I said- how do we want to play this?

(UPDATE 2:53PM) AS Aelfheld reminded me- Yahoo is responsible for assisting the Chicoms to send a reporter to prison.

Guess my new search engine will be Ask Jeeves.

I guess BusHitler Chimpy McHalburton is just as inept as his critics say

I mean wasn't the delay in helpin NO, just the excuse he was using to KILL black folk?
That's what you'd believe if you really listened to the left. Seems the massive body count isn't going to be as bad as predicted.

Bush is soooo inept that he can't even give the LEFT their massive dead bodies.

Hey, lets not vote for him next time!

(Yes, I KNOW he's not eligable again, just play along. maybe they't shut up.)
Man, I've got to keep better track of my hours

I thought I was almost close to 40 hours last week. Turns out I had 16 hours O.T.

Also, that $3.00/gal gas has dropped to between $2.80 and $2.70/gal. Now all those morons who couldn't afford gas are on the roads again- and all heading west. I can't remember the last time I saw I-10 west so busy.

I'll note that as gas prices are dropping, they're not dropping as fast as they went up.
I also remember that at this time last year I was paying $1.35/ gal. which is STILL less than half of the best price you can find today.

Thursday, September 08, 2005

Well, it happened on "W"s watch

I can't find it on the web- yet, but we're being invaded by the Mexican army today.
They're pre-running their invasion rout bringing needed relief supplies to San Antonio.

more later- I'm running late

(UPDATE 9:20PM ) Looks like they're heading up to the Big D.
They have their flag flying and water purification machinery for the refugees- since ya know OUR water isn't fit to drink.

Sorry, I just can't take this PC B.S. about letting the MEXICAN Army in here for a "humanitarian" mission. I'm sure there serious (in a way), but O just can't take this thing seriously.

The Mexican Army.
I didn't know there was enough of their people affected that Bush would need allow them to supplement more of our tax dollars.

The Mexican Army.
And they didn't even stop to savor their LAST military victory in San Antonio.

The Mexican Army.
When will Mexico City start paying the freight on their citizens up here, you know instead of hurricane relief some TAXPAYER relief?

Who says we never got anything good from Canada?

I'm watching reruns of Tripping the Rift now.

Is it me or did they intentionally make "Six" look like a young Raquel Welch? And the time delay,,,, ummm sway is eye grabbing even for animation.
More joblogging I'm afraid

Ok, is it job-blogging, joblogging or job blogging? Not sure if there's a consensus yet.

So far I've got 15 hours of overtime this week. We're working on the west side of S.A. so the boss let me take the haul truck home. Works for me, saves me an hour drive each way and saves about 6 gallons of gas. I dropped my tailgate and been driving around 65 MPH. I filled up today and a quick division job gave me 20MPG, about a 3MPG change fopr the better.
I'll still be glad when I can afford to get my 17 at 75MPH.

How. . . ODD, I was going to make a comment about my High Voltage direct buried cable NOT turning out to be Water Moccasins- BUT I keep getting a code 403 access denied over at Mostly Cajun

(UPDATE )- Aaaaiiiiieeeeeee dat coonass done got hisself fixed, he be right whar he done been at all along.

Ok, since we have so many here, I'm trying to get the thang about that coonass talk don ya KNOW!?

Tuesday, September 06, 2005

OH Man!

Ya leave your seat for ONE second to get a beer and look what happens.
Good-bye little buddy

Gilligan is no longer a castaway.
I wonder how BusHitler is going to explain killing a lake?

I just got back a little while ago and haven't had alot of time to look, but isn't N'awlins being pumped dry into lake Ponchitran?
I was listening to my new morning radio station KLUP 930AM, since I'm tired of the armchair Quarterbacking from the other talk stations.

Bill Bennett had a caller in the field of environmental remediation explaining the toxicity of the water in N'awlins. Basically it would be classified as a "Superfund Site"- if anyone remembers those. They're pumping that chemical and biological soup into an EPA protected lake
(it's not that they have much of a choice between swamps or the Mississippi)., and the EPA will be going apesh*t later.

Someone will have to answer for it. Anyone want to guess who'll be the target?

He(the caller) also said that everything the water touched will have to be treated like it was hazardous waste- boards, bricks, glass, rocks, etc, , ,

Given this thought, and the fact that the Big Easy is sinking between 1/2 and 3 inches per year- the question is "Why -aside from sentiment- should N'awlins be rebuilt in the same place?"
There will have to be some city there because of the river traffic. The city should be built on a less exposed area.

Tell the people who'll be getting FEMA money to rebuild that if you go to Neo New Oreans, they'll get an extra "something" the ones that rebuild on the old site get current value and a certified letter saying they forgo any further government money NEXT time they're flooded out.

Just a little push for some on my blogroll

I hate to do it, but if some of y'all don't start posting, I'll be making room on my blogroll for someone with new material.
A productive Labor Day

I worked through lunch and still only got out at 3:30- so it's an 8 1/2 hour day.
I got 6 holes drilled, because I finally remembered the right way to drill in rock. You have to back-up into the hole so you can use the entire weight of the truck and auger.

I ran into some f*cked-up fragmented rock in my second hole. Broke a lot of the rock teeth, ground down the other ones and wore a good size gouge in my pilot bit.
I'm down to less than a quarter of a box of rock teeth now.
I can weld the gouges and re-hardface the bit flutes, but it's been so long- I can't remember what kind of rods to tell my boss to get. I know 6011 rods are too soft, so it looks like I'll have to ask the welding supply store.

The joys of playing in the dirt.
Jenni brought some friends back from the shelter today

I Assume that our DFW guests are at the Convention Center and at Reunion Arena.
She and Barry went down to see what they could do.

We started at Reunion Arena where the Salvation Army had finally cut off donations because there was such a volume of stuff. After quickly realizing there were plenty of volunteers there, we headed over to the convention center.

As soon as we walked up to the volunteer entrance Barry was immediately ushered inside and I was made to wait in line. We had our cell phones on us so we knew we could keep track of each other and it was all good. As it turned out, they were getting ready to organize the showers and they needed men to help out with the male showers. They had portable showers set up outside the arena for the men and the volunteer guys were helping everyone get in and out of there and assisting however they were needed. Once they let the girls in, I helped fold towels and get everything set up for the women to shower. The women's showers were on the second floor of the arena. By the time the women started getting up there to shower, there were so many volunteers up there that I decided to head back downstairs to see how else I could help.

She also gives a wonderful haircare tip. Isn't she wonderful, volunteers all day and gives fashion tips at night.
Happy Labor Day!

I'm off to labor for about 8 hours.
Gotta do what I can to keep Valero's profit margins up, ya know.

This item does NOT come from Scrappelface


I know how you'd think it would, , ,

EFFORTS by Hollywood actor Sean Penn to aid New Orleans victims stranded by Hurricane Katrina foundered badly overnight, when the boat he was piloting to launch a rescue attempt sprang a leak.

Mr Penn had planned to rescue children waylaid by Katrina's flood waters, but apparently forgot to plug a hole in the bottom of the vessel, which began taking water within seconds of its launch.

The actor, known for his political activism, was seen wearing what appeared to be a white flak jacket and frantically bailing water out of the sinking vessel with a red plastic cup.

When the boat's motor failed to start, those aboard were forced to use paddles to propel themselves down the flooded New Orleans street.

But it actually comes from The Herald Sun, a real newspaper.
Jenni has an update on Katrina relief up in DFW

She wanted to help and ended up at one of the shelters on DFW.
She lets you know what's going on in one of the shelters up there.

After talking to my friend about her experiences volunteering yesterday, I was determined to head down there last night. All the stress energy in my body had to have an outlet and helping was the only thing I could think to do. I once again got B situated and headed downtown to try to help out. I got down to Reunion Arena only to be told that they "closed" at 9. Um, okay, whatever that means. I later found out that they actually locked up the arena at night so the volunteers were heading home. I was referred to the convention center because it has the overflow housing. So I headed that way and found a completely disorganized and chaotic volunteer operation. I quickly made friends with another stong person and we jumped in with both feet and started trying to help out. It was getting to be bedtime, so we helped carry the smelliest stankiest stuff I've ever smelled back with the people to the cot area. (I tell you right now with all sincerity that is the absolute worst smell I've ever smelled in my life. Take a street wino and mutiply it by 20, no kidding.) Then we found out that they were out of blankets and bedding so we asked if some couldn't be brought over from Reunion Arena. People had been dropping stuff off all day long and there were literally mounds of things like clothes, shoes, baby stuff, bottled water, food. Anyway, no one had the number to the people over there and blah blah blah so my new friend Chris and I went over there to see if there was bedding. After we figured out where the bedding lived, we saw there was quite a bit there and we should get it back over to the convention center.

You're a good hearted woman Jenni, keep up the good work.

And as an aside to J Ma: I didn't respond to one of your commentators injecting her liberal anti-Bush kant into your blog because it's your blog, and you try to keep politics out. I respect that, and being as I'm not a Lib- I don't feel it's my right to inflict my opinions where they're not asked for.

This is the first I've heard about this.

I'm sure we'll be seeing what Kuwait did splashed all over the MSM.
IF they can get away from the lawlessness in N'awlins.
Now, something on the lighter side

Al, Bill & Hill go to Heaven

God addresses Al first. "Al, what do you believe in?"

Al replies, "Well, I believe I won that election, but that it was your will that I did not serve. And I've come to understand that now."
God thinks for a second and says, "Okay, very good. Come and sit at my left."

God then addresses Bill. "Bill, what do you believe in?"

Bill replies, "I believe in forgiveness. I've sinned, but I've never held a grudge
against my fellow man, and I hope no grudges are held against me."
God thinks for a second and says, "You are forgiven, my son. Come and sit at my right."

God then addresses Hillary. "Hillary, what do you believe in?"

"I believe you're in my chair."
Houston, you may have a problem

I was watching my 24" auger bit try to grind itself through 4 feet of rock yesterday, and my mind started to pop up with things about these evacuees. Your mind wanders alot when it takes about 3 hours to make a 4 foot deep hole.

Last I heard, Texas was looking at around 250,000 residents of LA. I know Houston, San Antonio and DFW are looking at somewhere around 100,000 combined, mostly from N'awlins.

I know the neighborhoods of the Astrodome and KellyUSA- which is the first part of the problems. They are both on the seedier part of town, I don't know where DFW is putting them, but I doubt they'll be in a rich area.
  • I can see ALOT of gang violence and crime as the locals and the new ones determine their pecking order.
  • What about schools? That's ALOT of kids to farm around even for big cities like they are. OK, Texas isn't the top of the list for education cred, but I'm sure there will be quite a few new students repeating a grade when the teachers find out how, , , , , limited their learning is. The upper classes will be graduating from Texas schools, that's football, B.ball, cheerleading, band etc- and nobody brought or can afford to buy what they need.
  • Cars? Sooner or later they'll(adults) be wanting to be able to go places on their own. They'll be getting vehicles, and when demand increases, so do prices, parts and accessories, too- Mother's, ya hear that?
  • Jobs? Most of the displaced are actually working class people who will be looking for a job to help get themselves back on their feet as soon as they can- good on them! The problem is that they aren't from the most prosperous state, and would most likely be willing to take what is offered- paywise. This could bring them into conflict with another group of
    wage anchors
    will work for pretty much anything.
  • Who are these people, actually? Are they really who they say they are? Alot of them could use this event to get a new identity, forget old obligations and criminal records. NO, I'm not saying the majority- but some will, it's human nature.
  • The tremendous increase in demands on social services from health to crisis intervention, child care, basic necessities.
  • Housing. Most of the normal and honest people will want to get out of the human warehouses as soon as they can, what will that do to the housing/ rental market?

There are plenty of others that I thought of and forgot, I've slept since then.

I hope someone in charge is thinking about this, and not going to be surprised when the inevitable happens. But seeing some of the response from various Govt' branches, I'm not getting my hopes up.
Oh, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the rest of the self appointed "Black Leadership", you need to step up and tell YOUR people (since 65% of LA N'awlins is black) to start acting like civilized adults.

Man, am I glad I'm not driving on I-35 today

I said in an earlier post that people seemed to be saving gas and driving a little better. Well today they made up for everything they didn't do this week.

I was coming back to park the auger truck, and saw I-35 southbound at a standstill. I got finished and locked the gate and I-35 North was at a standstill.

I went to get some overpriced gas and saw the two right lanes and an exit ramp blocked by someone who just refused to believe that two solid objects could not occupy the same space at the same time. I'm not sure what happened on I-35S, but I saw alot of flashing lights before I headed down to I-10.

I-10 goes through South San Antonio, and I guess the folks can't afford the gas like the more affluent on the north side, there was alot less traffic- and better mannered again.

I hope everyone will be enjoying their Labor Day.
I have to admit that there is a bright side to overpriced gas

I'm on my way to work again today, and in a way I look forward to the drive.
Since the tremendous price increase this last week, the roads have (pretty much)lost their moronic drivers.
I don't know if the price is forcing them to drive more responsibly, or they just can't afford to get in my way. I've decreased my speed- spending alot of time in the right hand lanes, and do to the decreased traffic problems spend about the same time in transit- about 45 min each way.

Being the evil, selfish, mean spirited conservative that I am; if I could afford it, I wouldn't mind gas staying up there. But I can't afford it and neither can most others, and so I look forward to it coming down as soon as possible.

Since it's polititian bashing season

Lets be fair- It's not ALL the fault of the evil inept chimpy busHitler.
If you wan to get a good idea of who you want to mention in addition to the current administration, try Deans post about equal opportunity responsibility.

Have you seen what's going on over in Mogadishu N'awleens?

Chrips it looks like something you'd see in a third-world country.
Now they're shooting at rescue helicopters!

Is there a reason to even keep trying to save anyone?

Is there a shoot-to-kill policy for the cops? There needs to be.
The rescue helicopters need an armed escort, now- and the first shot at them needs to have everything leveled withing 200 YDS of the victim.

I'm seeing these animals roaming around, and they want me to pony up the cost of rebuilding that zoo?
Fix the seawall, dewater the place and let those animals have the thing, only ones in are the same kind of people. "Escape from N'awleens" anyone?

They aren't Americans, they'r sh*t!
