    Ok so a mayor in Texas said that they had reports of 20 cases of looting. He also reported that they have 16 of the looters in jail. Wow what a ratio they sure did a better job of protecting from looters or I guess in my opinion Texans are taking a lot more pride in being responsible and realize that their might be a lot more consquences from a pissed off texan shooting them for trying to break in to their house. Way to go TEXAS

    Ok so here is the big question. What is going to happen to the 16 survivers of New Orleans that are in the texas jails?



    ya I know but if you act that way in a diesaster and yes you will get labeled......some people bring it on to themselves.

    Well if I remember, NO was wiped out so bad that even many of the cops left to help thier own families, not to mention no access to the areas, not to mention some were looting for food, not to mention only the poorer people were the ones that were stuck there, not to mention the feds were no help, not to mention it is not a very good comparison.

    First off, your memory is not that good. Katrina did very little wind damage. You did not mention the Feds asked the Governor in advance if she needed help which has always been the norm. The Governor and the Mayor did not execute their own evacuation plans and sent people to the superdome with no food and water then blocked the Red Cross from going there. You also for got to mention this.




    This is Texas. Republicans in action







    New Orleans. Democrats "inaction"

    That is Texas taking a lesson from Katrina
    The way we build has a greater impact on our comfort, energy consumption and IAQ than any HVAC system we install.

    It may have something to do with the morals of the people in the areas compaired.

    In texas they left when they were told to --they didnt make excuses ---they didnt wait around for someone to come and move them---

    They didnt wait untill everyone was gone and then started looting

    and the Texans were bright enough to know that it wont do you any good to steal a tv set when there is no power to plug it into


    The people in texas stood up for themselves and did for themselves

    and most importantly : they didnt have a mayor that ran and hid untill it was over, and then couldnt get back in for another day

    or told them to return knowing another storm was on it's way

    I don't like to offend those from Lousianna, not even those from New Oleans, I am sure there are lots of decent people from New Orleans. But...lets get it straight that New Orleans has had a reputation for its high percentage of low lifes from all walks of life there. Rich or poor, New Orleans simply has a higher percentage of persons willing to loot.

    The New Orleans police left "before" the storm even hit, unlike the Texas police who did their jobs to serve and protect.

    This is simply a matter of different classes of people on an overall average. As the saying goes: "Sh*t rolls downhill", well, New Orleans is the lowest geographical point in the area.

    Thanks Robo, I had forgotten what it feals like to snort beer out my nose.
    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.
