Default What do these americans have to be thankful for? NYC storm victims'homes looted over Thanksgiving

The most important thing that Canadians have to be thankful for?

That we're not americans.

Every disaster in the US, fires in Colorado, hurricanes in New Orleans
and New York, stealing A/C units from churches - you name it - you're
always all too ready and eager to thieve and loot from your neighbors
when you can get away with it.

Oh yea, you've got great policemen too.

Instead of patrolling distressed neighborhoods looking for looters,
they're out handing $2500 tickets when they catch 3-year-olds peeing in
their front yards, or trying to get new laws passed so they can read
your e-mails without a warrant.

14 home break-ins in Breezy Point from Nov. 12 to Nov. 18.
There were none during the same period last year.

Naa - not enough crime yet to show a trend.

NYC storm victims' homes looted over Thanksgiving

Nov 24, 11:51 AM EST

NEW YORK (AP) -- Some residents of a New York City neighborhood that
suffered fire and flooding during Superstorm Sandy say thieves looted
their damaged houses over Thanksgiving.

The New York Post reports that thieves struck at least three homes in
the Breezy Point section of Queens.

One couple lost a $25,000 coin collection along with jewelry and
watches.

The break-ins occurred Wednesday or Thursday when many residents were
away for the holiday.

Robert Bainbridge says looters took $400 in two change jars. He says
he's trying to repair his flooded home and the theft "adds insult to
injury."

The Post reports that there were 14 home break-ins in Breezy Point from
Nov. 12 to Nov. 18. There were none during the same period last year.

Unlike Canada, we have a Constitution which limits the power of government.
For example, we have the protection from unreasonable search and siezure.
Which protects us, unless we want to fly airlines, drive a car, live in a
home, or walk on a street.

Unlike Canada, we also have the guarantee that the right to keep and bear
arms shall not be infringed. And, we are allowed to own certain types of
guns that are not on the disapproved, banned, list, if we're a law abiding
citizen, submit to background check, waiting period, application fee, permit
processing, finger prints, drug test, credit check, and register the guns
with make, model, serial number. We can then carry our guns in approved
manner, typically unloaded in the trunk (boot for UK folks), locked in hard
shell case, with the ammo separate, unless there is a sign prohibiting
firearms.

God bless the USA, and the freedoms we fought for.

The American designation is not derived from the name of the
continent.

Not only that, most are descended from US citizens.which means there
has to be a lot of faulty genes.
Canadians don't need a constitution. they have the Queen.

You must be terribly conflicted, then. Why else would you choose as a
posting name "Andy Griffith"?

I imagine each morning you debate with yourself: "If I get up, I'll just
have to eventually lie back down. Oh, what to do?"

You americans couldn't derail the subject matter of this thread fast
enough - could you?

The subject being how you thieve and loot from each other during a
crisis or natural disaster.

You just can't cope with facts like that - can you?

Because you're a weak people, living in a broken country.

This idea that you are a noble people living in a great country is a
fallacy that exists only in YOUR minds...

Actually, it is, if indirectly.
