  •  Stupid... (none)
    I mean how stupid can people be?? Sure we could all move 100-200 miles inland all around the country to avoid tsunamis, hurricanes, flooding, whatever. I'd like to see how our import/export , fishing/shrimping, oil and tourism industries do after that as well. I'm sure that would be just fucking grand for the economy! What idiots what the hell do they think we pay taxes for?? I never get a say in how the money is spent in congress, but you better believe I'd happily pay taxes and know it's going to relieve suffering when it's needed rather than having it squandered on missile defense shields, illegal wars, and research on a new generation on nuclear weaponry. Just fucking stupid.
    •  San Francisco should drain the bay... (none)
      Since we now know the whole country can be expected to bail them out if anything goes wrong, SF should just drain the bay and build more housing there.  Hell, it could help with transportation too.  No need for bridges anymore!  

      In Britain they admit to having royalty. In the United States we pretend we don't have any, and then we elect them president.
