Waitaminnit...Isn't Georgia part of the Bible Belt?
Why are the floods hitting there? That doesn't seem right, somehow...

Seriously, though, this is a major disaster, and my heart goes out to those affected.

1. When disaster hits San Francisco, it's gawd's judgment against Sodom and Gomorrah
When floods hit the buckle of the babble belt, it's the devil's work.

I thought you knew this stuff.

9. The Devil went down to Georgia, you say?
Must have been looking for a soul to steal, probably was in a bind 'cos he was way behind...well I think you know where I'm going with this :evilgrin:


But yeah, like you said when disaster strikes Frisco or NOLA, its the vengeful smiting of god, but when disaster strikes Georgia,well it's "'Cos hells broke loose in Georgia and the devil deals it hard."

6. Doesn't Perdue mean 'lost' in French?
Wasn't he one of the 10th Amendment guys...turning down Federal stuff?

Edited on Tue Sep-22-09 02:54 PM by BooBluePotion

To explain how accidents happen to healthy people and when they do a Public Lifeboat will be there for injured Americans.

15. You have to show them better than tell them better
Conservatives do not understand suffering misfortune. Lucky for them shotguns make somewhat sturdy oars.

10. Well, Perdue did that rain dance a year or so ago
He must have danced too hard. That dancing is dangerous in the hands of amateurs.

13. They should be happy they're getting some rain.
We've had a long dry spell here in Cali forever.

14. They have been doing a lot of praying for rain....
Having been through 3 feet of rain in under 24 hours, I feel for them though...

And people say monster 4x4's have no purpose... ;)

16. Gallows humor. I really feel very bad for the people who are flooded.
I hope we can help out on the Federal level. Assuming, of course, that they'll even let FEMA into the state. Lots of worries in GA about those "reeducation" camps, you know.

17. Why not? Floods and the Bible have long been associated with each other.
Of course, this was just a good flood, not a great one.

20. We're locking this.
As you note, this is a major disaster. We encourage discussion of the situation in the Southeast, yet please folks, refrain from snide editorial comments about the region.

Thanks.
