I have no problem with people staying to protect their ****. I just don't want them asking their fellow taxpayers to send a CH-53 to pick their ass up when the cable goes out.

dude hotwired a bus, got his neighbors and their kids on it, and was on his way out. got pulled over and arrested.
homie should have gotten a medal.
But we expect the government to help us through all sorts of cataclysms.

So, for my tax money I expect basic first response services to WORK.
But...there are times when basic first response gets destroyed in the catastrophe.
And for those times, we have the NRP/NRF.
Well, if a fucking wall of water came over my home because of a storm surge that exceeded, unexpectedly, the local levees, I wouldn't even know who to call. I'd be too busy shitting myself to move, most likely.
And so would most of you (the ones not floating away dead)
They said the levee would hold.
The local gov'ment. They was wrong.
When that happens, the big gov'ment supposed to step in.

Reason: That said, being fat = more 911 calls = more heart attacks = more reliance on gov'ment.
Right, those people trapped on roofs and in trees had no cable, that was why we needed to airlift them to safety in the Gulf....

No I am pretty sure he'd crush you into a fine paste, then spread you on a crawdad po'boy. Crushed devil makes ONE HOT po'boy.
Enough with the lame NO hate...the place is home to some of the finest cooking (and people) in America.

The good news is that the number is so small that it shows the section of Reddit that I reference in the article is mostly reasonable people (or at the very least, that the reasonable people vastly outnumber the nutjobs within that thread).
The bad news is that I now have some nutjob female from Arkansas threatening to drive to my house... and... well I guess she'll admire my shrubbery because she left it at that, over the fact that I brought up her crapping out 6 kids as a rebuttal to her implication that she was a good judge of, well, anything.
After all the death threats from ninjas, etc, will I finally be done in by a fat Arkansas woman who can't keep her legs closed? Tune in again for the shocking conclusion to Yes Bitch, I Can Eat an Entire Pizza.
