Default A View of Hurricane Katrina with No BS

It's long, but worth it. It's always refreshing to read someone with non-PC views such as mine. You may not agree with it all, but I digress anyway...

Yes, there were tragic instances. But giving airtime only to wacky, pessimistic, irrational voices (as media across the board did--even FOX) was just too much for me to tolerate for too long. Anyone who expresses sentiments like “How could they let this hurricane come here and do this to our lives?” is a kook as far as I am concerned. Those that somehow believe people are directly to blame for the happening of a natural catastrophe don’t deserve to be heard. In fact, they should to be told to shut the hell up. These kinds of people contribute nothing toward repairing things to a better state. Truth is, these people thrive on despair and disarray. Chaos -- mentally and physically and in the way they conduct their lives -- is nothing new to them. They forge their whole lives in and around it. This hurricane to them was nothing more than like rearranging the furniture. If we could be shown what general conditions they lived in before the hurricane, we would see that had little respect for what they did have. We would see just how unorganized, unclean and dysfunctionally they lived. They never gave a care for order, cleanliness or function before, but now that they can get someone’s attention who will possibly take over the responsibility of their life for them, they go on these tirades about how their life has been ruined. Their lives were already in ruin -- self ruin. Ruined by the bad choices they made over and over.

A pretty interesting read, but I'd reference it if I were you. The mods tend to delete plagiarised material

What a weird ****ing forum this really is.

But thanks to you all for proving my hypothesis correct. I came to a discussion forum and presented an article for discussion. Two replies just nitpick at the source of the article, and a third posts complete garbage.

Thus we can determin:

1 - there is a genuine lack of intelligence and philosophy on this forum
2 - nobody has any intention of indulging in any sort of debate or discussion
3 - everyone is here to while away their lives...hence post counts of 7,000, 10,000 and even 25,000 in some instances.
4 - I'm better than the lot of your philistines.

Cheers!
