    I really do not give a damn if ya have a H.S.Diploma,a AA,BA,MA,or a PHD...does not impress me in the least...Common sense does! If a person or entity chooses to build in a area known to be a disastor area be that a known flood zone,hurricane,twister,earthquake or whatever so be it...please do not cry to me when nature takes it's course...
    Now they are asking for relief and I must bend over backward to say... okay poor soul... you were dumb and now I am responsible to bail you out...OMG life is really simple... when you play you must pay...where does it say "I" must pay?

    If I sound cold...I am sorry...I work hard to keep my head above the water...and so must all

    And now on CNN... GW and the President of Russia "Putin" are saying they are partners in this disastor...Russia will help and GW smiles and agrees...whats up with this anyway?...Golly gee maybe something to do with the Iran BS...Gimmee a break... are they saying "We" are all that stupid?

    To put this into proper perspective: Stop analyizing others...A serial killer needs not be analyized...nor does a terrorist...nor do stupid people...elimination is the simple solution...not rocket science! :scratch:

    Uh... you live in a place free of natural disasters? Where might that be? I guess you don't need insurance where you live. You are a retard. BTW most of us have been paying our taxes to Uncle Sam just like you. We are bailing out an American city not Berlin. One day something will happen to your hometown and I will help. You are an American thus
    my brother. :usa:

    my friend...I was relating my diatribe to the government...I assume you took all precautions to buffer your possible loss for your decision to live where you do...I also looked into where I live and what the possible loss would be for natural disastor...yes I have insurance and it is paid without concern as to what my loss would be as I live in a minimal loss area...pre checked!

    Nevada is not likely to get tornadoes, though never say never.

    i wouldn't know, as i live in the land of 10k *cough*liberals*cough* lakes .

    actually, i just got back from Vegas and when we visited the hoover dam, the tour people told us that the snow from the mountains that melts every year, practically guarantees a water supply, though it varies from year to year.

    Everyone loves Vegas but it is an unnatural city since it's located in the desert. I don't wish a disaster or shortage on anyone but the person from Nevada was suggesting again that we were stupid for living on the Gulf Coast and I got that he was saying that it was bound to happen. My point was is that there is no safe place on planet Earth. Bush said it best when he said, "I can't imagine an America without New Orleans". We've been here since 1718 and this was the first time this has happened. $hit happens no matter where you live. If you live on the Gulf then you expect hurricaines ( not like Katrina ), if you live on the West coast you can expect an earthquake etc...

    I don't think it's stupid to live on the Gulf Coast, as long as you take the steps to protect yourself financialy for when the "day" came. What I do think is stupid is, expecting the Country to bail-out those that didn't take such steps, no matter the reason and expect total restoration. And W, for saying we will foot the BILL! BS..

    I guess I'm with Arch...I don't know where the hell W thinks all this $$$$ is going to come from.

    posted this in another thread but it fits here too

    A young woman was about to finish her first year of college.

    Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat, and was very much in favor of the redistribution of wealth.

    She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch Republican, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures that she had participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what he thought should be his.

    One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes on the rich and the addition of more government welfare programs. The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the truth and she indicated so to her father.

    He responded by asking how she was doing in school. Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew. She didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have many college friends because she spent all her time studying.

    Her father listened and then asked, "How is you friend Audrey doing?" She replied, "Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy classes, she never studies, and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so popular on campus, college for her is a blast. She's always invited to all the parties, and lots of times she doesn't even show up for classes because she's too hung over. "

    Her wise father asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's office and ask him to deduct a 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend who only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA."

    The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily fired back, "That wouldn't be fair! I have worked really hard for my grades! I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work! Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked my tail off!"

    The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently, "Welcome to the Republican Party."
