I got a little peeved during the debate last night, and grow increasingly peeved the more I think about. I was told by countless "just-world" conservative dickheads that they shouldn't have to bail out my stupid decision to buy a house "below sea level." Inanity of that aside, how is it any better to bail out dipshits who signed papers on huge mortgages they couldn't afford then, with the hope that it would all work out somehow? Someone in southern California, making less money than [we did] buys a house that's twice as big, they can't afford it, but McCain suggests the Federal government should step in and absorb the difference between FMV and the mortgage? By freezing all other spending beyond military outlays? How is this Straight Talk? How is this even remotely Republican? This sounds incredibly socialist to me, but maybe I'm just biased.
When I do it, I'm just a stupid southerner, when the rest of the fucking country does it, it's a crisis.  Got it!

Someone agrees with me.

While I think their population estimate is a bit low (thus increasing the murder rate), the ultimate result is the same as my analysis earlier.

Foreign Policy Magazine sez New Orleans deadliest in North America, and second deadliest in the f'in world.

How's that for keeping the brand out there?

Update: Seems the FBI has removed, without explanation, New Orleans from their 2007 crime stats.
