Default The people of New Orleans just need to get out

Instead of getting out of the flood zone, they are stocking up on groceries. Why in the world don't they get out of there? Katrina wasn't that long ago!

They are going to be rescuing people from rooftops again...

If they leave they get nothing. If they stay, FEMA will give them free money and relocate them to southern paradises like Houston at no cost. Now what would YOU do?

I can't imagine the stench. It's bad enough when it's not flooded.

Barf. We should have abandoned NO after Katrina.

I could see providing busses for them to leave, but if they choose to stay, that should be on them. That is just incredibly stupid.

They had buses for Katrina, but lots of people stayed anyway. Then they played it for even more sympathy. Took the Coast Guard and police major efforts to get to all the idiots. Not to mention all the rape and crime at the Superdome nobody talks about now....

My boss was just there for a business trip. First thing she said when talking about Bourbon St was the smell.

Yeah, just think about the smell after they have no power for two weeks. All that rotting food, and other stuff that I won't even mention.

Time to pack up and leave, but noooooo. Locals will stay and scream for aid. Waiting for the government EBT deposit before they can do anything...
