Hurricanes, Buttheads and Mental Illness

Also, check out the ADAPT protest. I'm keeping track on my twitter,(scroll down on the right) but the guy has been arrested and taken to holding so it will be a bit before I can be rowdy again.

I was reading the news on Yahoo a bit ago and they are getting ready to remove people from Galveston Island "For their own good". Just like they lock us up for our own good.

So, these people from Galveston Island shouldn't take things personally, they should be happy that someone wants to come in on their white knight of a horse and "SAVE" them, right? The choice for these chronically normal people is the same one many of us face.

They have the right to be killed because they want to stay in their homes, do the repair themselves.

Some of them will be tazed. "For their own good." Not for the good of the country or the good of their county or the good of the city, but "For their own good."

Whatever happened to the land of the free and the home of the brave? Of course the official making the decisions is where? On Galveston Island.

Interesting point, isn't it?

Here a clip of the article: the top
elected official in Galveston County, said the roughly 250 people who defied warnings they would be killed if they rode out the storm in the rural coastal community are a "hardy bunch" and there are some "old timers who aren't going to want to leave."

The Texas attorney general's office is looking into the legal options available to force the remaining residents leave, Yarbrough said. Local authorities are prepared to do whatever it takes to get residents to a safer place.

"I don't want to do it," he said. "I'm doing it because it's in their best interests."

The sliver of land is just too damaged for residents to stay there, and the population must be cleared so that recovery can begin, officials said. With no gas, no power and no running water, there is also concern about spread of disease.
