There has been massive flooding in Iowa.

Why aren't the people there stealing beer and TVs?

I haven't seen any pictures of looters, have you?

I mean isn't that what they are entitled to do?

Well, Katrina guy is leg-deep in water, but it's 31 feet deep in Cedar Rapids.

I wish we had floods here, my neighbors have a nice flat screen TV. Unfortunately we're on the west side of Des Moines, so no luck :(

Why don't you blame Bush for the floods and the fact that you don't have a nice flat screen TV? The Democrats are in charge of the Congress so you may get your TV yet.

The problem with that theory is that Bush's tax cuts have saved me enough money to buy a flat screen TV. :D

Maybe saying something like "George Bush doesn't care about corn" would provide the necessary outrage?

Looting on a massive scale happens every-time there is a destructive hurricane in the caribbean. Whites do not have this entitlement mentality you speak of

Already being done. This is on the KCRG web site about the flood.


10:12 AM This is All GW Bush's Fault!! wrote ...This is just like Katrina!!! GW Bush with his racist practices is trying to drive all people of color out so he can sell the land to his big oil buddies. Come on America! Wake up! If you don't vote for Obama, you are as responsible for the flood as GW Bush is!

Most of those looters are still here in Louisiana only now they are looting the Federal Government.

why aren’t they looting in Iowa and Wisconsin??? OH, I know why!!! (http://karlskards.wordpress.com/)



As I watch the constant footage on EVERY TV channel about the devastating flooding in Iowa, Wisconsin and other locations in the Midwest, I always get really perplexed. Where are all the LOOTERS? Where are all the beggars? Where are all the “woe-is-me” people asking for immediate government hand outs and cash cards? Then I come to my senses and remember that they are ALL IN NEW ORLEANS still complaining about Hurricane Katrina and waiting for the next round of Kardashians to come see their FEMA trailers to feel sorry for them.

So way back when Hurricane Katrina was just a small friendship of clouds in the middle of the ocean, weather forecasters were telling EVERYONE in the country that it was going to be a huge crazy storm and everyone should start evacuating immediately. What’s that, like a week or two notice? Every hour of every day, someone on the news was showing a graphic of the hurricane slowly approaching the southern coast off the USA and continually told everyone there to GET OUT. And what happened? Everyone there said it wasn’t going to be that bad, they moved a few sandbags in front of their houses and went out to buy umbrellas. BAM! Floods! Confusion! Mass Hysteria! LOOTING AT WALMART???!!!???!!!

Yup, that’s what happened. A hurricane came and devastated a large metropolitan area and no one left, they all just started looting Walmart and pretty much every other store that was still standing. They were ENTITLED to those TV’s and cheap furniture, darn it! I clearly remember seeing TV reporters interviewing people while they were STEALING stuff from Walmart and they people all were saying, “this is the best day of my life! There aren’t even enough police to catch everyone…” That pretty much sums up all I could go on and on about, doesn’t it?

So what happened in Iowa? Well, in Cedar Rapids, IA, the local emergency personnel asked people to voluntarily evacuate their homes because of the POTENTIAL for rivers to crest past flood stages. People took the warnings seriously and evacuated. Pretty much the whole town is under water now…in some places it is 5-7 feet ABOVE the street! Many lost their homes and everything they have ever owned. Yet I’m confused…WHERE ARE ALL THE LOOTERS IN IOWA??? HMMMMMM??? Let me think about that one for a second. You just read my mind :) LOL!!! In fact, when the TV reporters interview the town-folk in Iowa or in Wisconsin where the Tommy Bartlett Water Ski Show will miss the entire summer season, they all have faith and hope and seem pretty positive. “As soon as this water’s gone, we’ll all band together and rebuild our town” was one commonly repeated phrase from many. Another was, “at least we evacuated when they told us to,so we’re all safe”. Never once did I hear the people in Iowa or Wisconsin say, “Where’s my FEMA trailer?” or “I want some free Government Cheese”…yeah, it seems as though these folks are going to stick it out for a while and wait a little while to buy their next pair of Air Jordans and some new bling.

Something else pretty amazing is that many of these people in Iowa and Wisconsin KNEW that they were in areas prone to flooding (they got a major flood back in 1993 if I remember correctly) so they had INSURANCE. Fun fact about New Orleans…even though they are located BELOW sea level and have pumps that run pretty much every day to keep them dry, most of those people didn’t have insurance! Wanna know why??? Because they needed to buy new rims for their 1986 Olds Cutlass (and the extra premium for the insurance would have been less than the rims).

That’s what you call “Demographics” -

No looters here. In fact even the prisoners are helping (well, not sure if they exactly volunteered) :D to fill sandbags up in Clarksville, Mo., a small town on the Mississippi north of St Louis. They have folks on the local news saying how they get such satisfaction in HELPING people and hope that others in turn will help them.

Funny thing, here in the good old Heartland folks volunteer to help fight the floods, not all that hauling off beer and flat screens. :D

200 years or less at the current rate, Mexicans will be the dominant race and whites and blacks will be minorities. Blacks will not be able to blame whitey for their own shortcomings when that happens.

I think that will happen in two more generations. More like 50-75 years than 200.

We have given our country away.

The goddamn Mexicans will change all of America like they changed California and our children and grand children will be worse off because of it.

And when this does happen, and it will, there will be no Crackers left to pay for the worthless entitlement types. Close your eyes and visualize whatever "people" you wish for "entitlement types" just so's there is no false claim of bigotry.:rolleyes:

I believe we are still giving it away. The USA and its citizens are no longer what I remember from 30 years ago. That is REAL CHANGE. Hey Obamaniacs, you paying attention? Change ain't always for the better.:eek:

A lot of people didn't have insurance, there's plenty of stories about that here. Of course, it's more of a "we didn't expect this" story than "the Corporate Insurance bastards aren't paying out." The disadvantaged will probably get FEMA checks, but it probably won't make up for their losses. Good reason to get flood insurance. Although I doubt we will, considering our (well, soon to be ours) house was completely free of any type of water damage whatsoever. The closest water damage was about 3 blocks away and 10-15 feet lower elevation.

Mexico might be a better place to live than here. Damn sure will be cheaper.
