NO as a starting point for a rebelion against the goverment
    #4607637 - 09/01/05 12:29 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

okay there are a few things i see happening in the near future. allready medical helicopters and police are taking fire which is almost halting rescue effrrts, also police are being diverted from searcha and rescue to stop the looting. so we have lots pf people not getting aid, who have to be really pissed.

now considering that many of these people are armed and angry, and robbing most things that arent nailed down.... we have an issue.

at one point FEMA is going to have to move in, that means that the army or natnl guard is going to have to dis-arm the looters and whoever the hell is taking shots at the helicopters.

i dont see this happening without a massive loss of life by the people of new orleans, im talking about those that are drowning and dying because of lack of aid, and those that are going to get gunned down for stopping FEMA and aid from coming in.

this could be a boiling point. hell this is proabbly the most lawless evennt in my lifetime, eave the rodney king riots, that in the end will not hold a candle to this.

i could see this lighting a political spark beneath many people if not handled very carefully, which it seems isnt happening.

also i would expect wide spread criticism on the war in iraq and our president because of the fact that so much or our resources are over seas fighting a war, instead of saving lives at home. coupple that with the growing frustration of gas prices going through the fucking roof.

if the majority of the popluation's opinoin starts turning against bush, then the media will jump on it, and bash along with the public, save fox news.

this could be very very interesting. if we were to have a terrorist attack in the next week this country would be ape-shit crazy

I think a humongous medical catastrophe is an awful time to organize a rebellion against the government. As much as the gov't sucks, it will take all of its resources to fix shit down there.

im not saying that im going nto try and start one, but i could see it happening. the national guard is going to move in there, and dis-arm thesee street gangs and looters, some of them are going to be killed by our own troops.

americans killing americans, very volitle situation

That's a very good point. Let's hope this happens, soon.

oh shit man, zippoz, you hit the bullseye.

If there is a terrorist strike, the US is going down.

I can see this as the jumping point to fuck the gov't up totally.

I don't think people realize that this is beyond rising gas prices. The decreased production in oil also affects food and retail goods, airline tickets, and electricity and heating. This could be a pretty hefty hit on our economy.

a boiling point is pretty close to the truth i think/
i just feel like the whole world is on the brink of something, or spirally out of control...
deadly islamic stampedes, cities getting hurled into the dark ages.

i dont want to say i am happy about these things but....it makes me shiver in anticipation or something

The time is not right. Besides, rebellion is worthless. Revolution is what we should be seeking, and the people are not yet ready for revolution.

i see this as a very scary time for America we are open for attack Right now from other country's because we are weak... that's what really scares me.... other country's are laughing at us right because of how we aren't really handling this well. Our government tries to handle other countries when we can't Even handle our own!!! damn here come the other countries to get us!!

That's why I say it will get worse. If this continues alot of the country is going tohave a problem just surviving. It's going to effect the whole economy.

The first term bush was in office and we had all of this unemployment, foreclosures and an increased demand on government checks will not even compare to what today's situation could do to us.


Alot of the people in my area are suffering already because of unemployment, now the gas prices are up. How can they even go look for a job? I am in a rural community and we do not have public transportation.

It's only going to take so much misery to cause some violence.

from a moral standpoint perhaps....but its actually a fantastic time to start...sort of getting them with their pants around their ankles

i dont think it would accomplish anything but causing even more of a police state than we already have though
the US government would (will) not be an easy establishment to topple
