I was recently sent an e-mail with these questions. Just wanted to know what other people thought about them. Feel free to use the comment section to chine in with your opinion about any of these questions.

SOME QUESTIONS NO ANSWERS
Questions regarding the Iowa flooding:
1. Why aren't Hollywood celebrities holding telethons asking for help in Iowa ?
2. Why isn't the media asking tough questions about why the Federal Government hasn't solved the problem?
3.Why isn't the Federal Government relocating people to free Chicago hotels?
4.When will Spike Lee say the Federal Government blew up the levees that failed in Des Moines ?
5.Where are Sean Penn and The Dixie Chicks?
6. Where are all the people declaring that George Bush hates white, rural people?
7. How come in two weeks you will never hear about the Iowa flooding ever again?
8. Where are the free FEMA trailers for people to live in for almost 3 years?
9. Why did we not see all the looting of businesses like with Katrina?

Nobody gives a sh1t about Iowa. When was the last time someone went to Iowa on a Tuesday in March and had a hundred women flash them for a few $1 beads? The midwest and white people in general are boring. It doesn't make for good television.

Verbatim "Nobody gives a sh1t about Iowa. When was the last time someone went to Iowa on a Tuesday in March and had a hundred women flash them for a few $1 beads? The midwest and white people in general are boring. It doesn't make for good television.

If that doesn't deserve an attack I don't know what does. I am ridiculed because I stand up for the people of Iowa and the person who insults the people of Iwoa is defended. This is laughable.

Also, in reply to the comment you cited verbatim, I was agreeing that a large number of people don't care as much about the situation in the Midwest as they did about New Orleans, not that either if us expressed a complete lack of concern for the flood victims in the Midwest.

sadolite: The fact that you cite the number of personal attacks you've made in this comment thread is laughable. When I made the statement "You can dish them out, but you can't take them" I was referring to personal attacks you've made on numerous comment threads and debates to myself and other debaters, as well as entire groups of people (i.e. Mexicans, the people of New Orleans, environmentalists, etc).

A prime example of your persistently appalling activities which I'm attacking can be seen throughout this comment thread starting with the second comment you made about this debate (comment page 7), and I quote "Lwerd, Not a very nice thing to say about the people of New Orleans is it. I said that to show you what you sound like to me. You obviously could care less about their suffering I think you suck. I hope it happens to you some day. But of course you will probably be first in line looking for a govt check to save your a##."

If that's not enough to give someone reason to attack you, I can go on citing other comment threads and debates if you wish. In addition, I assure you that there are several others on this site who share in my discontent for the same reasons.

Furthermore, due to your aforementioned activities, I stand by all the personal attacks you cited, save two. When I stated "I hope you die in a fire", I was ridiculing you for a previous comment you made. Also, just because I called you a Floridiot doesn't mean that I think everyone from Florida is an idiot. I used to live outside of Tampa, and have close personal friends in and from Florida. You happen to fit the definition of a group of people in Florida I dubbed to be "Floridiots" during the time I lived there.

He's not talking about personal attacks on him. He's talking about attacks on New Orleans and pretty much any place besides the midwest.

First off, none of us have expressed a complete lack of concern for the flood victims in the Midwest.

"I don't think theLwerd was trying to offend anyone, she was simply stating that people could really care less. I'm from the midwest, and I'd have to agree with her."

And why shouldn't they? You can dish them out, but you can't take them?

And still the personal attacks continue

On both issues, you're only looking at a very small slice of a much bigger pie. Several people on this site have explained this in depth to you, but you still haven't taken everything that was said into account, so to comment further would be irrelevant.

The only reason I suggested that you debate solarman is that you're both like twin numbskulls on opposite sides of the hydrogen spectrum. It would make for a hilarious debate.
