    Now what's that supposed to mean? I mean if I may be so blunt as to ask? Dumber than Arkies?

    Me? I'd say to heck with plywood too.......no future in it, especially after it gets wet. I say canned goods and ammunition ARE the future stock market. By the looks of things, arms and ammo are outperforming the stock market. Who's being dumb?

    FWIW, I don't think the folks of N.O. are "idiots" any more than I think the folks in Arkansas are "dumb".

    I DO think some folks post some stuff that is in really bad taste here, and I was trying to point that out.

    I'll bet that firearm sales in and around NO are very good, and I'm happy to hear that the citizens are willing to protect themselves in a big way, and they have my support 100%. However I'd bet that either gasoline, food, or water is actually the #1 selling disaster item in NO right now. Both of my kids live in Baton Rouge, yesterday my son said that he can easily tell that folks are antsy, running to the stores, gassing up, etc. As well they should be, though it's better to be pre-prepared isn't it preppers?

    I think that Gov Jindal is ahead of the curve in preps. Maybe he's looked at ex-gov Blanco's playbook and is doing the opposite.

    I believe the State has already opened the designated hurricane shelters, activated state employees, alerted the Nat'l Guard, etc. etc. I have no idea of the status of NO.

    I wonder how shotgun and buckshot sales are doing there?

    Actually, HotGuns calling that certain segment of the N.O. population "idiots" was pretty darn mild in my opinion. Low-life parasitic scum would be a more accurate description IMO. I can still see the images of the rampant looting that took place there during Katrina in my mind.

    Happy to hear the citizens of N.O. are preparing appropriately!

    Perhaps. But remember, dumb people are everywhere.

    No need to apologize at all.

    Are you talking about "do unto others and split?"

    Once some of you have some real life experiences with how your fellow human beings act in certain situations, you'll come close to loathing people in general as much as I do. It's really sickening some times to know what our fellow man will do, and most of the time, the thoughts of survival aren't even a factor. Every time I look at a person, I know deep down what they are capable of no matter their outward appearances or demeanor, and it disgusts me. Each and everyone you meet on the street, under the right circumstances, would kill you without blinking an eye for the last piece of meat. Remember that, and make your own island in the sand. Trust nobody.

    Army 22rpr you think anyone making over 45k is rich ? You must not be raising any kids.It costs 19k to send them to a state school.If you live in a state like Maine where there's no public transportation you need to buy them a car another $8,000.I worked two jobs for 25 years and made a great deal more than that because I wanted my children to have a better life than I ever have.One is done college,one has two years to go!And I am burnt out!

    One thing to remember when talking about New Orleans is often the term New Orleans is used not to refer to the city itself, but rather to the greater New Orleans area. In 2000 New Orleans proper had about 485,000 people, but the New Orleans Metro Area had a population of about 1.02 million. New Orleans itself had less than half the population of the metro area. The metro area includes not only Orleans Parish, but St. Bernard, Jefferson, St. Charles, and Plaquemines parishes. Ray Nagin is the mayor of only the city of New Orleans. Places like Metairie which is and unincorporated area in Jefferson Parish has a population of over 150,000. Kenner in Jefferson Parish has over 70,000. Chalmette, Marrero, and Terrytown all have populations of over 25,000 each. When discussing New Orleans it is important to remember that there is much more to New Orleans the metro area than there is to New Orleans the city.

    And when the illustrious mayor of New Orleans city got on TV and made a speech shortly after Katrina devastated and flooded the lower parts of the city, his main concern was to make sure that Bourbon Street would be ready for the next Madi-Gras.

    That told me plenty right there.

    Cool

    I heard a report the other day stating that there are 14,000 N.Orleans still living on the government dole today, three years after Katrina. Deadbeats if you ask me.
