    Maybe they’re sick of rebuilding houses that will get wiped out in the next hurricane. Over and over and over. The government shouldn’t be in the insurance business, the government isn’t a business and doesn’t care if it loses money hand over fist.

    The only ones not wanting to help storm victims are politicians…until it’s THEIR state hit by the hurricane/tornado/forest fire/drought/flood/blizzard/oil spill/zombie apocalypse.
    When Obama was running for office in 2008, he said we needed to start factoring the cost of responding to disasters into the federal budget. It had never occurred to me that no one budgeted for disasters.
    As far as the government not being in the insurance business…insurance companies have not been in the insurance business since they were allowed to trade on the stock exchange in the 1940’s. Yes, they sell insurance and they pay damages, but they do so reluctantly. The executives and stockholders are more important than the people insured. The government is supposed to regulate business and protect citizens from criminal negligence, fraud, and destruction of environment by business in the name of money and power.
    Respectfully,

    Sorry Jeff, you messed up on this one…The south and north both have prejudices, but the “waffles-overweight-south” analogy is ponderous at best. Sharpen the pencil and take another shot at em….

    We northerners could probably just help ourselves on this one if we weren’t sending a net outflow of our own tax dollars to southern states who refuse to pay their own bills.

    @Ms. Ima

    Studies show that most overweight folks are in the Southern states.

    Many Northerners contributed time and money to support the victims of Katrina just as individuals from around the country helped us following Sandy.
    Politicians, on the other hand…

    I’ve had Danziger on my list of comics for a year and a half. He’s generally unfunny, ocassionally on point, one-sided to a fault, bigoted towards southerners and republicans….I’m a moderate independent and I just can’t stand this guy’s work. He must surround himself with like-minded pogues because I can’t see how anyone else could stand being around him. I just removed his cartoon from my comics list and my day got a little better.

    An edit on his bio: his writing is razor-sharp; i.e. it only cuts in one direction an does so ineffectively due to being encased in uninspired, premanufactured packaging.

    Funny thing about some of these comments is that the average southerner probably doesn’t even know any rednecks. (stereotyping, maybe?)

    As somebody who’s been to the South several times (and lived in North Carolina for two years), I’m going to say that the stupid stereotyping needs to stop. It’s not helping the discussion in any way and only deepens an already-enormous divide.
    Besides, everyone I knew went to Waffle House (of which this is an obvious parody) for the coffee, not the waffles.

    Except…it’s the SOUTHERN.gulf coast states that that are in the Hurricane alley, not the NORTHERN mid-atlantic states. A hurricane like Sandy only happens once in a blue moon

    And another dumbass Howie comment.

    Sadly, it’s not one bogus comment. The Civil War never ended. I used to live in the south (my brother still does) – and some folks there are still fighting it. There are great folks there, but for many, all northerners are anathema.
