    Yup, New Orleans and Biloxi were welfare cities. Everyone in the shelters was on welfare and is black. Cause we all know they're lazy, uneducated and just plain good-for-nothing. How's that?

    I could not beleive that they showed video of rescue workers loading and unloading supplies and people on and off the transports.With groups of able people(males 15to50 years old) just standing around *****ing about where is this and where is that??.How can you accept help if you are not willing to help yourself..I would have been walking the hell out of there somehow--not sitting around waitng on a ride.Because if a bus can get to you then you walk out..I know some people had special needs then let the resources be used on them ,and you walk the hell out of there.......

    that's perfect and exactly how I see it.

    Imagine if all the able body people got there asses outta there on Sunday. Yep walked if they had to a whole 10 miles then there would have only been a couple thousand people to rescue in that dome, that would have been a cake walk for the rescuers. Black white green lazy is lazy

    Now they have to jepordize their lives, helping lazy stupid idiots who can't do anything for themselves.

    well I dont know that EVERYONE is black or on welfare , but I know one guy that is white that is already getting sick of hearing how the white man is doing nothing for them , or how little the white man is doing for them .None of the people that have been displaced have refused any of the white mans money
    The racial remarks from the Civic LEADERS of their community that ran off and left them behind are ridiculess
    How much money has jessie or his brother al dumped into helping their brothers out
    Here we are almost a week away and look at the number of people pointing fingers and blaming people for the mistakes that have been made

    all of that blame and finger pointing isnt doing anything positive for anyone.

    what has happened is tragic, and what is about to happen will become a bigger mess. there just arent enough 4 star hotels to put everyone in.

    For the 1st time in my life I agree with comments from the Black Caucus. And me, a card carrying Republican.

    If this was an earthquake in Beverly Hills or Newport, Rhode Island, the government would have been all over it.

    It does make a diffrence if you and I have paid for these peoples exsistance (welfare tax dollars). They are so used to the government doing everything for them. The government is not responsible for the storm. They should not complain when they get help the should do as much as they can to make the best out of a bad situation. They did not leave when instructed to do so ,and they did not prepair and now it is everyone eles fault?

    I have compassion for the relief workers, the Armed Services, and the officials who will be constantly criticized for some mistakes. They will get my compassion also because they did perform one hell of an effort within five days. How many did it take to mobilize what we saw in day five?

    Compassion for a woman crying about milk for her baby? She looked like she was barely 30 and had five kids under 8 years old. No compassion there. She should have been neutered after the second one.


    well said
    Well said? Would it make a difference if this person was white? Middle or upper class? And had five kids? What if she was a lawyer? A doctor? What difference does it make that she was barely 30 and had 5 kids? Here and now, what difference does it make?

    Maybe she was perfectly able to support these kids before she lost everything. Or are you assuming she was a welfare mom? People like you and I are in that Astrodome too. People that had good jobs - and 5 kids. And now they have nothing.

    Katrina didn't know class. Everyone in its path was affected.

    My compassion doesn't know race, religion or class.

    If she were a lawyer or doctor she could afford those kids.......the government has been paying for her

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — In the face of a catastrophic Hurricane Katrina, a mandatory evacuation was ordered Sunday for New Orleans by Mayor Ray Nagin.

    Acknowledging that large numbers of people, many of them stranded tourists, would be unable to leave, the city set up 10 places of last resort for people to go, including the Superdome.

    The mayor called the order unprecedented and said anyone who could leave the city should. He exempted hotels from the evacuation order because airlines had already cancelled all flights.

    Gov. Kathleen Blanco, standing beside the mayor at a news conference, said President Bush called and personally appealed for a mandatory evacuation for the low-lying city, which is prone to flooding.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    What would have happened if President Bush didn't make that call, and why did the city and the state governments wait till sunday.

    The government shouldn't have to micro manage any more than the rest of us, It's too costly, just as it is in business.

    First... you have no idea what I've done with my checkbook....now...or in the past. But I bet my charitable contributions make yours look sick

    Second...I'm not whining. The hatred sickens me.

    Third... unlike a few people here, I am not a racist.

    Fourth...I served my time...have you?

    Really? Ever in the service? Probably not.

    I've helped build schools in Panama, Portugal, Jamaica, Guam; as a member of the 157th Civil Engineering Squadron. 17 years.

    Twice my family and I brought a truckload of toys to the Philippines and played Santa to poor kids at Christmas.

    What have you ever done that was decent?

    I've got proof too. Need to see pictures?
