New Orleans hospital halts patient evacuations after coming under sniper fire...
I'm guilty too as a European American.
Why not? It is exactly fitting of the terrorist Muslims. Kill a child, a woman, an old person, someone in a wheelchair would be a wonderful killing. Arafat's group did a great job in training these rabid monsters. Up here in the mountains we shoot rabid animals on site. Terrorist qualify!
What I am wondering is how, with all that clairvoyant capability, voodoo and all, they didn't see this coming. They will have a tough time marketing that ju-ju now.
As usual DU blames Bush and says either his machine his making it up, or it is because he didn't call in the military. But if one sniper is killed it will be his fault.
Then you have the other side saying we can't understand what is going through these people, they want to down a chopper to get water and foood.
I live in Seattle, WA and all you have to do is walk downtown to understand how much deadwood we have.
I've seen these animals making nothing but trouble once in a large enough gathering. Hell, a couple weeks ago, there was a family style parade in downtown, after it was over, they all congregated by the symphony hall bus stop. Tons of teen gangbangers acting like retards. Within a half hour as I'm eating at a restuarant across the street, the cops had to be called in because fights were breaking out. Whole group of them got maced and they all starting running in different directions mocking the cops and kept running back at them taunting them.
Later when I got out of there, the place was trashed. Litter everywhere. McDonalds bags and food all over the ground. THey spray painted gang symbols on the windows of the symphony hall.
If the same thing happened in Seattle, these animals would be down here looting, fighting, and hurting innocent people.
They are the product of endless welfare, liberal appeasement of their violent behavior, a culture where acts of violence are glamourized, and horrible parents who could care less what they do.
The libs make them believe they don't have to have any accountability for their actions and so they are products of that entitlement syndrome.
Yes. Home grown ones would be my guess.
This is their chance for their personal 'sleeper cella' to activate and create havoc.
Seriously, we are seeing the ultimate example of what happens when limp-wristed liberals are in charge.
Yep, they just turned `em loose.
My thoughts exactly...just as the DC sniper was a muslim terrorist.
I was making a sarcastic response to a previous post... Hence the "sheesh"...
They are our own "al Qaida" but with no ideology. They need to be exterminated and there bodies publicly displayed.
"I'm seriously thinking about buying a gun and learning to use it now because of this."
You do right by arming yourself and your family. The worst is yet to come as hoardes of illegal aliens continue to pour into our states at terrifying speed. When there are enough of them, then hell will break loose. The time is almost ripe for this to become reality.
Proud_USA_Republican is a troll.
I keep asking myself that.
I hope that isn't true. I would hate to think that my first post was fouled by a troll.
The federal executive does not have the authority to strip a state executive of power.
I know you are being sarcastic, but I am not being sarcastic -- no I'm being serious as a heartattack -- when I point out that the looters and snipers are not "European-American" Republicans.
It's kinda funny to hear all these liberals complaining about the number of troops we have in Iraq during this domestic crisis. The blunt truth is that dealing with the chaos in New Orleans would require the National Guard to do things in that city that these same f#cking liberals would never let them do in Fallujah.
No such authority exists.
This is a disgrace...there is no excuse for this situation. I don't care what the governor does the Feds must step in.
Not true really. There are a number of federal laws that make it possible to eliminate the Governor of Louisiana from all decisions -- effectively removing her from office. A presidential declaration of Martial Law in Lousiana is only one mechanism by which the Governor of a state can be effectively neutralized. And the new powers of Homeland Security and FEMA really can swee a governor into a closet while they do what they think needs to be done.
You too, huh? I was a social worker for 5 years before I started teaching. I bet they are the same ones who never came to school, slept in class, or caused so much trouble they kept everyone else from learning, too. Our "welfare" system just nurtured these behaviors.
They're Christmas presents...see how you are...you just had to ask and now you went and ruined it for everybody! < / Jeff Foxworthy>
These are not normal people these are savages..gang member and trouble makers..The word should go out through the media that the police should shoot to kill these filthy savages..Sound like the terrorist in Iraq..
So bad elements in an American city are firing on our troops and NGOs? Time for the US to pull out of America.
Jerry Springer, is a quack..he should keep his mouth shut..We have plenty service people here..I have an idea!Why don't these people save themselves.And why did they stay when they were told to get out..You can say oh they are poor and have no means of transportation but they do have two feet..The ones complaining should have taken the older one out and the children..which I did see men and women doing this and they should get praise for their actions..You will hear the liberals take advantage of all of this and that is so pathetic..
"As an ex-Social worker I will explain it to you"
Wow. I thought all the Social workers were bleeding heart libs.
Maybe that's whey you are an "ex" S.W.
A pro bono sniper...I'm with you!
Yep. I agree they are everywhere these days. Fortunately they are somewhat dispersed most of the time. But get even just a few together in one place and in a short time everything is trashed. They are up here, too.
I got so sick of wasting my time in social work- no one is interested in getting those people off of welfare,or getting the people strong enough mentally to raise themselves up- the PTB are interesting in keeping the cash cow ,that our welfare system makes, going strong so they all have easy cushy jobs.
Martial law doesn't typically push the gov out. As for the new Homeland and FEMA powers, I'm totally in the dark and know absolutely nothing about them. Thanks for pointing that out. It totally escaped me.
I have always thought that every family should have a gun and know how to use it (trained in safety, handling and all that). As others have pointed out on other threads, the veneer of civilization is very thin. While I do believe that most people would not resort to violence or wickedness (as have the looters), there is an element that will and one should always be prepared. It's not a big deal anyway. My hubby is a hunter so guns are normal for me.
I lived thru the LA riots after the Rodney King case. There were buildings burning in all four directions from my apartment. Looters everywhere--and I didn't live in that bad a part of town.
The difference is that after about 3 days the NG showed up and order was quickly restored when men with M-16's started walking down Sunset Blvd. That is not happening here, I suspect for two reasons: (1) even under the best of circumstances, it takes a few days to move a bunch of NG troops into a city and we are just getting to the point where, if conditions were ideal, the NG would be able to move into and take control of the city; and (2) The logistics of getting them into New Orleans is a nightmare--Los Angeles was dry and had freeways coming into town. NO has no access except by air and boat--although getting boats in is probably very dangerous as this is not charted water.
I think you mean 'push the local governments out' but it really does mean that. If they have a role to play under a presidential declaration of Martial Law, it is a role given to them in the 'situation zone' -- not a role by right.
that's breaking...that has been reported for days on FR and dismissed by the expert MSM watchers!
What your missing is that Delta Force is doing the evacuations.
I tried to gently say just what you said about why I had no interest in visiting NO and a few freepers didn't like it so I stopped. But I know that NO and a lot of other cities have major gang problems which results in a lot of crime. And I've got no interest to visit those places and neither do most tourists.
That's why what Guliani did for NYC was such a miracle and it brought tourists back to that City.
I agree. Bush is far too focused on bringing the rule of Islam to Iraq and has been caught completely flat-footed with this disaster. This is a disaster that needs resources available at the federal level. Bush's platitudes are worthless and getting very tiresome.
I don't care if Dad and Clinton team up and raise money in the future. These people are now dying in the dome of dehydration-babies are going to die soon. some are very sick. Get off you but Bush-send help!!!!
I met a soldier in Starbucks...he is heading to Egypt. He told me the Louisiana Guard is in Iraq. He says there is not many soldiers left to help...he was stationed in South Georgia. I am sorry to say the libs may be right. We don't have enough soldiers to protect the homefront.
I never thought I would agree on anything with the libs, but I also think they may be right this time. Isn't responding to a disaster such as this supposed to be the primary function of a government?
Just find them and kill them
Political correctness BS and camcorders have everyone from police to military personnel afraid to do anything to control any situation, lest it be distorted by the America-hating MSM and they fine themselves the latest victim to have his life destroyed by the PC-hate-mob mentality. And unfortunately, the victims can not count on this administration to stand up for them to save them from the crucifixion hysteria.
Is 1st Amtrac Bn. from Pendelton overseas? I think 2nd Amtrak is in Iraq, and 3rd Amtac is too far off to respond. Is there a prepositioned 4th Reserve Amtrac?
