The ignorance of Freepers on Louisiana questions is again on display.
Please enlighten us I enjoy learning.
I don't know if it's as much ignorance as asinine indifference.
It's not the first time G-d took down a city for the sin within it.
I see no need to spend my money to rebuild what G-d decided to destroy. He's the boss of me, right?
If the citizens of Louisiana would like to cover future insurance bills for NO - drop out of the federally insured flood programs -- then you can rebuilt the city forever. On my dime, I'm not interested. And yeah, that goes the same for folks who build directly on the beach and expect me to cover redecorating costs every 6 years. In case you think I live in Iowa, my yard ends at a tidal stream... I'm 12 feet above sea level this area hasn't flooded in at least 80 years. If it started flooding every few years, I would not expect you to rebuild my home indefinitely. It's time for the folks in NO to cut their losses... Other options would be to require that new homes be built on stilts. Or the land be built up to a safe height.
The "we want the world to be the way it was before" isn't good enough. Tell me where I'm wrong.
Louisiana? Is that near Quebec? I can't stand people from Luxembourg.
Lots of old, old social dynamics being displayed here.
Protestant vs. Catholic is one of the oldest. The Protestants hate the Catholics, not vice-versa. The more fundamentalist the Protestant, the greater the hatred.
English vs. French is another old, old one.
Bible Belt has always hated French Lousiana, going back to when both were colonies.
On the other hand, the type of people who settled South Louisiana aren't the kind to let their feelings get hurt by a bunch of Yankees.
It makes you sick to your stomach doesn't it?
