a matter of survival

When the looters were running wild in New Orleans, I heard serveral members of the Congressional Black Caucus say that people were doing that crap "in order to survive." Yeah, right.

Here's how some people view survival.

The guardsmen recently thought they had caught a looter coming back into town to load his stash onto a moving truck. Inside his home, the soldiers found automobile parts stacked 8 feet high, a new off-road motorcycle and various electronics, including a video game system with a pawn shop ticket still attached.

But the man told the soldiers he had no idea where the goods came from and that someone else must have broken into his home and stashed them there after he evacuated. Skeptical, the soldiers detained him until police arrived, filled out a report and seized the goods. They took the man's name and address, but did not arrest him.

Yeah, right again. The guy had NO IDEA how all of that stuff ended up in his house. I notice that food and bottled water weren't part of the loot.

In other homes, McGowan's unit found automatic teller machines that had been broken open and emptied of cash and bags of ammunition still packaged in 500-round bundles, not the individual boxes of 20 rounds usually sold over the counter.

A smashed-open video poker machine, likely taken from a bar, was left lying on the sidewalk of an Uptown residential street.

In a church-run assisted living home close to a heavily looted Wal-Mart in the lower Garden District, a team of guardsmen found new bicycles, stereos and clothing. Someone associated with the church, who refused to give his name, said at least seven rooms in the four-story residence were filled with goods believed to be stolen.

All of the "goods," of course, were survival suppiles.

I can understand looting food, water or ammo in that situation (although I always keep plenty of all three on hand), but the rest of this crap was pure-out LOOTING, and the cops need to find and prosecute every swinging dick they can convict for behaving like a savage.

We cannot condone or excuse such reprehensible behavior. If we do, we encourage more of the same.

"Nothing will happen, we have oppressed these poor downtrodden people for 200 years they are owed this, consider it part of the reperation payment."

BAWAHAHAHAHAHAHA and the sad part is that some people actually believe this shit. I just hope that thiso that do are next in line for the looters to hit and see if they still have the same story. These fucking looting savages will cut your damn throat for a two dollar wrist watch and wouldn't take a job if it meant they had to actually show up at a location at a given time to go to work.

The biggest mistake was not shooting the sumbitches on sight when they were taking the loot out of the shops. Instead the cops joined in and helped them. So much for property rights in new orleans and anybody that would invest a gotdam penny in business there deserves to be looted.

I have not seen a more true analysis of what has been presented (and sucked up by a lot of fools in the world) by the Main Stream Media ( which is now the joke of the world) than the following:

Things I have learned from News on TV


Things I have learned from watching the news on TV during the last eight days:

1. The hurricane only hit black family's property.

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

3. Mississippi is reported to have a tree blown down.

4. New Orleans has no white people.

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

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

7. 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.

8. White folks don't make good news stories.

9. 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.

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

11. 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.

I can't say as I blame them for looting after

hearing from one of their leaders,Lewis Farakan namely,that white America came

down there in the middle of a terrible storm

and blew a 70 foot hole in the dike. Oh did I

say that the hole was stratigically placed so

that it only affected the downtrodden blacks?

well you can see why this violence was all good now can't you? Or are you a rascist to?
