I'd rather have a few hooligans than the current situation in New Orleans.

Fast Fred has got his head where the sun don't shine. Please do not take him seriously, that is if you can understand him. The situation in New Orleans is about the same as Leeds, UK. It is a good idea not to point fingers unless you have hard facts. AND yes, Last time I went to the Dell, in Soton, I was ashamed to be an Englishman. Justmy 2 cents worth.

guess that depends on what you think the situation is down that way.
no one minds when the gangs shoot each other, it's when others get in the cross fire.

can't say i know any Gang members, can't say even seen any, ever.

not from New Orleans my self, but got some frineds out that way, seems they are gettin along just fine, thare is a bunch that did not have a lot to begain with out that way, they got even less now, and feel the Gov owes them something, and or the Gov did it to them, or some how thare falt.

the meat head factor, crossin borders every ware.

That is assuming I have understood your version of English......
The Russians are rarely given their due for helping stop the Nazi war machine, MILLIONS died, and little mention is made of it in Western news media, American or British. The Allies could likely have lost the war if not for the Russian war effort, some tough son of a bitches! Germany had committed roughly 60% percent of her men and material to the Russian front, a fact not commonly known. Russia was a very tough opponent. Cod... Truly, if not for Britain us Yanks WOULD be speaking another language, French or Spanish at the very least, that is a fact! We speak English because... back in the day we were a British colony! Yanked from the old sod and transplanted over here, just one of countless British colonies. So hey, don't sweat it, we still have your back, just as you, have ours! Remember, the U.S.A is what it is today in large part due to the historical influence of the mother country, Britain. SO, you are just stuck with us, just like your kids.... Did you notice how I snuck "War Machine" in there?
