Also, don't forget that the shelters don't take animals. Supposed you're poor, and you have a dog. Do you turn your dog loose to drown, or do you stick by him and hope it won't be that bad?
I mean, we here in California know there's a big earthquake coming, right? When it hits, the power could easily be out for a long time, and we could be stuck with no gas or clean water, no food distribution, etc. When that happens, do you want the rest of the country to blame you for being stupid enough to live here? Do you want them to blame you for not having enough water, food, batteries, etc.?
Open your eyes! It takes someone (not all
) from California to pull out the "free" card. You guys are allways wanting a free lunch. Nothing Is Free! It comes out of your pocket as well as mine, & the dog thing...come on! Hmmmm, your life or the dog's, let me think, thats a tough one. These people knew it was coming, they made a decision & it was a poor one. It's not even in the same ball park as an earthquake. An earthquake comes with little or no warning, these people had several days to evac. Ace hits it right on the head.
Now don't get me wrong, I do feel bad that mother nature decided to unleash her wrath on Americans, and Americans are dead, but let's stop blaming the govt. & let's start taking responsibility for our own decisions. Let's come together, let's get our people to safety, let's get them fed & watered, let's get this mess cleaned up, & let's move on! It's what we do. As for the looters & the shooters, Zero Tolerence! If they need food/water...thats human nature to want to survive, but anyone looting an other's belongings and not trying to build a raft with them, shoot 'em. (I'd say jail 'em, but that would take too long, and the officer's time is better spent helping someone who needs it.
p.s. Maybe the next time they build a city on the coast that's below sealevel, they'll put the houses on stilts.
