The people of the Napa Valley are just stupid. Who would live in a place that floods every few years?
If you’ve watched any cable news you know that Napa is flooding. Again. Just as it did in 1984, 1986, 1996 and 1997. Authorities are worried that people who live in the flood plain AND REFUSED TO MOVE will get flooded again.
This time a levee broke adding to the damage. What moron lives in a place where they need levees to stop flooding? Why don’t these people move?
It’s not like they didn’t know these floods were coming. They are right in the middle of building a flood control project to try to stop mother nature.
Think of where these idiots live. In Napa VALLEY. When it rains in the mountains where does the water go? To the Valley! These people are surrounded by mountains; they live in a bowl, of course they will flood again. That’s why they should move.
We will just have to accept that we’ll have to pay $4 per gallon for grape juice. Or we can leave the grapes in place then bus people in to work the crops.
And why didn’t more of these people evacuate when they saw it raining? They are all living in multimillion dollar homes, its not like they couldn’t afford cars!
And lastly, what about personal responsibility??? Why didn’t these people get out there themselves on nights and weekends and build better levees themselves? They waited for a government handout to build their levees. If they had taken any personal responsibility for the levees they would not have flooded.
Rather than spending another tax payer dollar protecting an area WE KNOW will flood, let’s just abandon Napa Valley and move the people to higher ground.
Update Sigh: When I wrote this, I was (Duh!) joking about the metal ability of people from Napa. After reading the comments, now I think I might have been closer to the mark in my humor than I thought. Please if you are from Napa, read what this is filed under and read the comments.
