I've got my popcorn ready, beer in the fridge as I prepare to sit back
and watch Florida (and the RNC) be destroyed by hurricane Isaac.
With all the crop-insurance claims that are going to be filed this year,
homes burned down by wild fires, massive tornado dammage earlier this
spring, flooding in Duluth MN, and now Florida is about to be hit with
$50 billion in hurricane dammage.
Your insurance premiums nationwide are going to go through the roof to
pay for all this carnage.
But that's ok.
Tampa is ready with their civillian storm-rescue vehicle (aka tactical
armored swat-team carrier).
Ninety (90) countries did after Katrina.
One of those countries was Bangladesh, per capita income $1,700.
U.S. per capita income $49,000. Both figures are for 2011 and from the

Maybe Haiti will give you aid. Or aids. (actually, even though that's

iPads. Because we know you're addicted to your iCrap.
And don't look to Canada to give you food stamps. We don't have any.
Maybe when you stop building and living in flood-prone, hurricane-prone,
forest-fire-prone areas, you won't be so f'cked up by natual disasters
Then all you'll have to worry about is California falling into the
pacific ocean when "the big one" hits. At least it will be satisfying
to see Cupertino slide away.
Since it's the profit motive that keeps it going (true capitalism at
its best) why not legalize it and get some tax money. Of course,
cocaine that sells for $100 an ounce would only cost $1 or so if it
wasn't illegal. No need to have crime to pay for that.
I don't think so. For example, 7 people were killed and 24 wounded in
Chicago this past weekend. All were between the ages of 15 and 44. The
15-year old, an virginal little girl, was shot in the chest as she was
