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.

They also know that so long as they prolong chaos they can enjoy their power trip.

Bingo. We have a winner. These cowardly displays of temporary power very likely represent the high point of these scumbags' meaningless lives.

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.

Be prepared.

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

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.

Jerry Springer Radio (which replaced Glen Beck in my area) today was saying that if our troops weren't in Iraq then we'd have saved everyone already.

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.

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.

The turht is the Democrats keep most of the inner city folks in a slave mentally so they will be too stupid to vote for anyone other than a dem.

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.

Well, I don't think ANYONE has seen anything like this before, but the Guard at least has manpower, equipment, supplies, organization and structure to respond as needed.

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.

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.

"NO was poorly managed from the beginning a strong stance was needed right away. Now the fruits of their inaction are starting to ripen and rot"

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.
