You can't make wrong into right by doing wrong more effectively. It's time for real MEN to stand up and take back our families, our society, and our self respect. It is not a crime to be born a man. It is not a crime to act manly.

How Stupid can you get?

I’ve gotta say it. Galveston, Texas, is a really stupid place to build a city. A century ago a hurricane came in and washed away most of the people along with most of the buildings. Sea water storm surge was 10 feet deep or more across the whole island. So what did the survivors do? They rebuilt the homes on the same stupid hurricane zone island.

So Hurricane Ike comes along and washes away most of the homes in Galveston. Can anybody say “You STUPID idiots!”

So what are they planning to do now? You guessed it. The survivors are hell bent on rebuilding on the Galveston sand bar island to get ready for the next hurricane. Someone said that the definition of insanity is someone who keeps doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result.

I've liked reading this blog, but this post is stupid. Of course, there is always another natural disaster that will occur one day. There is no place in the world that is paradise.

You forgot to mention that Galveston has gone through countless hurricanes since the 1900 disaster.

I suppose no one should live in Florida because hurricanes will always hit that. And I suppose no one should live in Kansas because tornadoes will appear there. Can't live in California because earthquakes and fires will appear.

Tell me, Bob, where should we live? Where does the Almighty, All Knowing Bob tell people to live that possesses no risk from earthly disasters?

Note to frost:
Sure live in Texas, but don't live out on the frickin beach. Live in Houston or Beaumont, a few miles back. Live in Louisiana, but don't live below sea level. Live in California, but not on the fault line.

And if you choose to live where the next bad weather WILL wash you away, don't come crying to your neighbor to pay for your loss.

Live in New Mexico. The worst thing that will happen is you get shot by a cop. No news worthy natural disaster.

What comes to mind are those universal Flood myths we keep hearing about from different cultures. The reason for those I suspect is they built their towns along waterways and flood plains. After, of course, they strung up the local smart-aleck who pointed out that folly where they would have heeded a high-price out-of-town "expert".

You will also note that no Sea Wall of a height that would properly protect the city has been built to protect it. As Ron White says "You can't fix stupid." Especially if you are stuck on Stupid.

Sounds like Galveston is on what they call a BARRIER island; i.e. it's a strip of land formed by nature that provides protection for the MAINLAND-duh! The barrier island absorbs the shock of storm surges, thus protecting the mainland; living on a barrier island is just S-T-U-P-I-D...
