    Completely ridiculous. Now, people know & will be better prepared, or they may NOT have anywhere else to go.

    The radical Republican party is the party of oppression, fear, loathing and above all more money and power for the people who robbed us.

      and it pisses me off to no end. Even folks here after Katrina were asking why folks live there. I kept pointing out that a third of our energy comes through New Orleans. A third of our seafood. The largest port in the world is there.

      Heck all the stuff we grow and make by me (I live outside of St. Louis) goes south to New Orleans before it is shipped throughout the world.

      That is why folks live there.

      When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

      •  Yup, why live in CA or even AZ or Alaska? (0+ / 0-)

        Two are deserts; one is in the Arctic. Just 'cause. If I could afford it, I would live in NYC.
