North Carolina took the bullet for New York City.

Yes, but was it a racist hurricane?

The last big hurricane apparently did racially motivated damage.

FEMA should have anticipated that and stopped it.

OK...I'm done now.


Yeah, I see where you are going with this.  Someone in New York needs to ask the question,  Is this the United States????    :roll:

However, I have been to Mississippi and New Orleans several times to do disaster relief, and the damage there was thorough.  I saw blocks and blocks of houses in Mississippi just gone where there was nothing but foundations.  There's lots of damage from Irene, but nothing like Katrina.

Still, what I suspect you are talking about is an attitude where somebody else is always responsible for your problems.  Of course, some people internalize everything and that's not healthy either.

O.K., I'm done.

Why? I've never been helped by disaster relief & can't foresee ever needing it, so it's not fair to tax my wages for other people. They should have known better than to build homes in a universe where mishaps are possible, they should have chosen to inhabit my universe where nothing ever changes & everything has its proper place until some liberal comes along & spoils it.

Taxation is theft, unless it's used for something sane like defense or manned space exploration. America only accounts for about 45% of the world's military expenditures, which means the rest of the world spends 55%, a dangerous gap. I didn't train circus seals in the desert just to see it all fail because we spent our money on something wussy like disaster relief.

And yet all the chats seem to boil down to talk about women, drinking and sports. We need a virtual bar.

Damn straight. Much as I like a good glass of scotch, I could do without alcohol for the rest of my life with little regret. I hate sports. Women, though, indispensable, for a variety of reasons I won't delve into and which should be obvious. I realize there's an undercurrent of misogyny around here, but let's be real :).
