Default Hurricane KATRINA..... check this out

This is an e-mail that was forwarded to me... I think it'* what we've ALL been thinking:

I couldnít have put this much better myself. Ití* what we have all been saying.



Things we've have learned from watching the news on TV during the last eight days:

The hurricane only hit black family'* property.

New Orleans was devastated and no other city was affected by the hurricane.

Mississippi is reported to have a tree blown down.

New Orleans has no white people.

The hurricane blew a limb off a tree in the yard of an Alabama resident.

When you are hungry after a hurricane steal a big screen TV.

The hurricane did 23 billion dollars in improvements to New Orleans: now the city is welfare, looters and gang free and they are in your city.

White folks don't make good news stories.

Don't give thanks to the thousands that came to help rescue you, instead bitch because the government hasn't given you a debit card yet.

Only black family members got separated in the hurricane rescue efforts.

Ignore warnings to evacuate and the white folks will come get you and give you money for being stupid.

Damn, I feel so sorry for all those black folks. The only way it could have been worse was to be white.

Been sitting here with my *** in a wad, wanting to speak out about the bullshit going on in New Orleans.

For the people of New Orleans... First we would like to say, Sorry for your loss.

With that said, Lets go through a few hurricane rules: (Unlike an earthquake, we know it'* coming)

#1. A manditory evacuation means just that... Get the hell out. Don't blame the Government after they tell you to go. If they hadn't said anything, I can see the arguement. They said get out... if you didn't, it'* your fault, not theirs. (We don't want to hear it, even if you don't have a car, you can get out.)

#2. If there is an emergency, stock up on water and non-perishables. If you didn't do this, it'* not the governments fault you're starving.

#2a. If you run out of food and water, find a store that has some. (Remember, shoes, TV'*, DVD'* and CD'* are not edible. Leave them alone.)

#2b. If the local store is too looted of food or water, leave your neighbor'* tv and stereo alone. (See # 2a) They worked hard to get their stuff. Just because they were smart enough to leave during a manditory evacuation, doesn't give you the right to take their stuff... it'* theirs, not yours.

#3. If someone comes in to help you, don't shoot at them and then complain no one is helping you. I'm not getting shot to help save some dumbass who didn't leave when told to do so.

#4. If you are in your house that is completely under water, your belongings are probably too far gone for anyone to want them. If someone does want them, Let them have them and hopefully they'll die in the filth. Just leave! (For goodness sakes, it'* New Orleans, find a voodoo warrior and put a curse on them)

#5. My tax money should not pay to rebuild a 2 million dollar house, a sports stadium or a floating casino. Also, my tax money shouldn't go to rebuild a city that is under sea level. You wouldn't build your house on quicksand would you? You want to live below sea-level, do your country some good and join the Navy.

#6. Regardless what the Poverty Pimps Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton want you to believe, The US Government didn't create the Hurricane as a way to erradicate the black people of New Orleans; (Neither did Russia as a way to destroy America). The US Government didn't cause global warming that caused the hurricane (We've been coming out of an ice age for over a million years).

#7. The government isn't responsible for giving you anything. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave, but you gotta work for what you want. McDonalds and Walmart are always hiring, get a damn job and stop spooning off the people who are actually working for a living.

President Kennedy said it best... "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country

Just making sure... bc i wasn't going to post it at first. I guess it comes off as biased or whatever you want to call it bc it'* true... ppl really aren't grateful for our help even tho they're ignorrant and want to find someone to blame for something we couldn't prevent from happening... and the mayor was told to put his evacuation plan into effect a couple days before the hurricane hit and he didn't, so I really don't want to hear their sh*t! And you know they have tv'* and knew it was coming their way. But... that'* just my opinion.

Lessons were definitely learned from Rita after Katrina. I'm just getting a little tired of the over coverage now.

I hope the feds come in and help the displaced and destroyed lives due to these storms.

Those statements above hit the nail directly on the head.

I couldn't agree more.

Yep. Always gets me how the folks that give back the least to society want the most from it. I think some people just go through life with their hand out. I've had to earn what I have!!
