Well, relatively speaking, considering the general bent of my whining lately.
Anyway... I was thinking about Hurricane Katrina and the whole Louisiana thing... and how they're determined to rebuild it.
ARE YOU FUCKING RETARDED?
Even IF you could rebuild the whole damn thing, which is going to cost over $200,000,000,000.00 to do... IT'S JUST GOING TO HAPPEN AGAIN. You're building a fucking city BELOW SEA LEVEL... and not only that, but it's STILL SINKING EVEN LOWER. So even if you could find a way to re-elevate the land level, it would just sink down again anyway... and the rate is being accelerated by the depletion of ground water and fossil fuels on top of the natural rate.
Now the kicker is that they want to use MY (and your) tax money to do this.
Um.... no? I'm sorry... it's a shame that the city got wiped out. If you want to rebuild it... THEN YOU FUCKING DO IT YOU STUPID POOR FUCKS. Don't expect me to foot the fucking bill for a bunch of stupid poor fucks 1,000+ miles away who chose to live in a spot where their destruction was simply a matter of time.
I have a huge problem with people expecting a federal bailout of any sort when they KNOWINGLY choose to live in high risk areas such as flood plains below sea level, or in the flow path of an active volcano etc...
Sorry, you choose to live there because of the view or because it's cheap (FOR A FUCKING REASON), then you willingly take the fucking risk of getting FUCKED and it's NOT MY PROBLEM. I don't want a fucking cent of my money going to help your dumb asses out.
As far as I'm concerned, if they couldn't build the fucking levees themselves, then that's their problem. Boo-hoo. Here's a fucking tissue. Have fun cleaning up the bodies suckers. You'd think you'd learn a lesson from this... but as we can see, even while the bodies are still bloating in the deadly floodwaters, the stupid fuckers are planning on building again.
It's times like this that I see, yet again, just how fucking stupid people are... just how fucking broken our government really is... and just how fucking much people are incapable of holding themselves accountable for their own fucking choices and actions.
In an odd way it reminds me of Atheism (or even Satanism to an extent) vs. Christianity.
Atheism = I fucked up. It was my choice. I'm accountable for my actions. I'll fix it.
Christianity = Someone else made me fuck up, and someone else will fix it for me.
Leave it to me to throw in a jab at stupid religious people in the process of bitching about Federal taxation to support the rebuilding of New Orleans etc.
