I am amazed at all this obsession with looting.
I totally agree. Forget about the looting and send some money to the Red Cross. The company I work for is donating tube feedings, insulin, etc. to hundreds of people who have been brought to Alabama for treatment in our hospitals and charity houses. I've delivered some of these items to the local Children's Hospital in the past 2 days and the things I've seen have been horrible. There is a baby girl here that was picked up by strangers somewhere in New Orleans who suffered massive head trauma. She can't be more than 2 or 3 months old and no one knows who she is or who her parents are (were?). A quarter of her skull was removed to relieve the pressure caused by the swelling of her brain. She is on a ventilator. With that in mind, I can't belive that anyone is worried about somebody taking a television.
Who cares who's stealing televisions?? Obviously you have mistaken me for someone who gives a shit about looting T V's! The point I'm trying to make is: What good are these kinds of possessions in a time like this?! Why is it that all a common thug can think about is himself and his ability to get something for nothing. The idiot who took the TV just shows us all where his heart is! Instead of using the raft to help someone, he instead, expends all his energy stealing a worthless item in the hopes it will bring him monetary gain or pleasure in the future. As for me, I'd be forgetting about that damn television and look for ways to help others and to help secure food and water. These kinds of disasters tend to bring together communities while at the same time, bringing the sewer sludge out of hiding to take advantage of a bad situation. These kinds of people are unproductive scourges on society. Me hopes that someone beat the living shit out of him, dumped his precious TV in the water and took the raft to help an elderly couple out of their flooded home!

I'm going now, to the kitchen to gather some items to take to the tractor trailer parked on the nearby highway for hurricane disaster relief. I encourage each of you, who have not already done so, to do it now!![:)]
The point you are making about stealing televisions is absolutely obvious to everyone. Of course he doesn't need a tv now. Of course he should be trying to secure food and water. Some people are just assholes. The point I was making is that now is not the time to sit about contemplating the darker sides of human nature. Right now is the time to help the people who are dying.

BTW, I applaud your effort to help. If you would like to donate medical supplies, or know anyone that does, feel free to PM me for the address of our Birmingham staging area where these items may be sent. [:)]

RE: lawlessness in New Orleans

White people are "being resourceful" and searching for supplies.

Black people are looting.

I'm really trying to see things from your perspective, but I'm having trouble getting my head up my ass

There is so much racist shit going on it makes me sick.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

I agree. people stirring in racism even when there is none are a huge problem because it diverts attention when racism is the problem.
