****Anyone see the movie "Mad Max" recently? This sure seems like a smaller version....possibly to grow to a larger version.****

This also reminds me of the Stephen King novel The Stand.

Is this really true? I mean the initial reports of helicopters under sniper fire were not supported by the National Guard... Sounds like mass hyteria is starting...

Some reporters have said that criminal gangs were planning to go in and loot New Orleans immediately after the hurricane.

Americans need to know if indeed criminal gangs are the ones responsible for the chaos.

Just a fact. Sixty-seven percent of the population is black. What has happened to almost all inner cities is a part of black culture. Not trying to be a racist, but stating facts that we all know. They are easily proved. Many black people overcome great odds and become great Americans. They do so by first becoming civilized in their behavior. Any society must behave in a civilized way to succeed. This is also the reason for the urban blight. Civilized people with families will naturally flee from those who act like savages. There are plenty of white people who refuse to be civilized in their behavior and are known as white trash. Those who behave like savages in the good times will behave even worse in the bad times whatever the color of their skin.

Martial law has not been declared. All troops are subject to civilian authority (federal and local).

EVERY able bodied man or woman who stayed behind should be charged with manslaughter.

I would bet that you live far, far, far, away from the coast.

No, silly, not the entire guard. Sheesh.

I'm not sure how to indicate sarcasm on here (obviously), but my intent was to mimick a brainless lib argument about how misspent our military is.

So the question is, are the NG troops "real" enough soldiers to handle the situation? I have great respect for those NG troops who have served in the Sand Box, but fear for those who have never seen anything like this before. We used to call them the K-Mart Army once upon a time. The name didn't fit all of them, but it did fit many...

Hey, luv - wave at the ocean for me if you would. I just left SD last week and apparently got my flight out just in time.

shooting at hospital workers and NG in helicopters trying to help people out of hospital is beyond words to describe.

Bring in the snipers, bring in the military. Kill anyone running around with weapons.

This is america. Not some 3rd world banana republic.

You heard, didn't you, that they released all the inmates from the NO jail earlier in the week? They're probably cracked-up or speeding by now, like `skinnies' on chat. If armed, they probably can't hit the side of a building and they have no RPGs, at least that we know of.
I saw the Louisiana governor on TV just before the storm hit. She didn't look like she could run a two-car funeral.
This situation can only get worse. Someone has to make the decision to assault these people shooting rescuers, and make them dead. Now.

Never underestimate the lure of a flat screen tv to someone who is brainwashed into mindless consuming by twelve hours of television viewing daily.

And I apologize for the awkward sentence.

Like virtually every other social ill, much of the blame for this can be laid at the feet of the libs.

It's my fault, as a European-American, that non European Americans are acting this way.


Earlier this week a non European American went out of his way in his car to cross the center line and spit at me as I road my bicycle home from the store carrying some pop. I admit that I'm damaged goods after that.

I would not rule out terrorist cells in the usa seeing this as an opportunity to make a trouble. No sane criminal or criminal gang would fire on Rescue helicopters, just does not make sense. However a terrorist under the cover of lawless, flooded city would see it as a target of opportunity. Whatever, send in Special Forces to take'em out before they lose themselves in the exodus.
