All the Better to Keep You Safe, My Dear!

With the Hurricane Gustav non-crisis going on, I feel that this would be a good time for a discussion of mandatory evacuations and the dangers thereof.

Just how caring is the U.S. Government for our personal safety?
It would appear to me that the U.S. and state governments are using the excuse of "safety" from natural disasters as pretext to take guns and generally loot homes and businesses.

To begin with, there’s Katrina: a category 5 hurricane that struck New Orleans, the filthiest sinkhole of sin and crime in the South.

There, one of the most wretched usurpations of power ever seen after a natural disaster took place. I’ve mentioned it before, but, for the moment, I shall resurrect the little-reported story of the Katrina gun-confiscation of 2005:

Also from Katrina, New Orleans police looting a Wal*Mart store:

Katrina is not the only recent natural disaster in which tyranny reigns; Greensburg, Kansas also felt the sting of usurpation. I cannot adequately express the importance of this nationwide issue.

Now, Louisiana residents are faced with homelessness because the "Authorities", formerly known as "Civil Servants", aren't allowing them back home.

Don't ever evacuate, it may be more dangerous!

Those videos are so interesting!

I kinda have mixed feelings about New Orleans because that is such a place of debauchery and paganism. Those folks want all the freedom without taking responsibility.

I have a lot more sympathy for people who exhibit responsibility and have their rights taken away.

Scary stuff in Kansas, though!

I know what you mean!

For me, it's a "if ten good men be found in that city" sort of thing.
