56. Anyone who doesn't have enough food for a couple of days planned poorly
Edited on Mon Aug-29-05 05:11 PM by slackmaster
The fact the national guard is keeping people from FOOD shows we are NOT living in a democracy...

Since when is "democracy" defined as a society in which people are allowed to take food without paying for it?

I'm sorry to be so blunt about this, but it's not all that difficult nor is it expensive to stock yourself up with proper emergency supplies. People had days of warning before the storm struck. I live and work in earthquake country. My house is well stocked with emergency food and water and camping gear. In my desk at work I keep a couple of MREs on hand at all times. And for the record I'll be happy to share my stuff with needy people in the event of a disaster.

Most people can get by for a day or two without food. Let me know when people start suffering more than hunger pangs due to the National Guard doing its job of maintaining civil order.
