  • Yeah, it sucks, but try to name another country that would spend millions to accommodate these people in those trailers. Thousands were given debit cards, each with access to thousands of dollars in relief funds. In so many lands, you're on your own when nature strikes.

    I agree with you, they are bad in Florida to. Im not racist in any way shape or form but here in Florida id say 90% of black people ive ever met have been complete SCUM. Which sucks because there are some nice black people who dont deserve the neagative stereotype."
    I agree with you as well. It is the Ghetto Black population that are the los More..

  • I am wondering if the grand plan is to not have these displaced people move back to New Orleans. Is the plan that they will grow tired of their own situation and move elsewhere?

  • Thats what happens when you let the market run wild. All the land clearing, clearing of wetlands and coastal dredging made this hazard occur 10 times worse than it would. Market indeed, here is your multi billion dollar market externality. America sucks.

  • Hey World - These are the Niggas in my back yard. The world's most shiftless, dumbest, government tit-sucking worthless humans I know. It has all been about 'when is my Gubment check gonna come?' Please tell me why they never gone back to clean up their homes, and make a livable place? I know why - L A Z Y. Bad education, no role models, too many children, too many drugs, too little motivation. What a friggin drag on the system. Please, Africa, take your sons and daughters home, now.

  • This video epitomized mediocrity. Stop ignorance, stop the cycle of Gubment welfare for votes, stop welfare for the able-bodied, stop free Gubment housing, get their butts up and off to work, vanquish the black 'leader' posers like Jackson and Sharpton. I am sick of subsidizing these pieces of trash through my paycheck.

    That's the problem. And what they get are politicians that suck up to their desires so to win over their voting block.
