i have to wonder were they always like this? 100s of years ago theyd just watch the water rise and take them away?

the news says they tried to evacuate, but didnt know where to go?

high ground maybe away from the logging and the mines?

even here they remained in their shacks on the sea and waited. not one left to get away from it.

are all the filipinos just sacrificial lambs for stolen emergency aid?

Seeing how Filipino's in general don't have any sense God gives a piss ant it's not surprising they go out to sea with a monster typhoon coming. Not surprising either they stay on or near the beach with a 20 foot storm surge coming.

Perhaps the word "evacuate" confused them. Not enough toilets for all those people to shite LOL!! Maybe the news should just say run away to the mountains. We know the reason none of them left.......as soon as they left through the front door then their neighbours would enter through the back door and loot.

yeah, but loot what? if you left youve got your p150 in your pocket.

i suppose the ones that got buried in the mud ARE the neighbors that stayed and looted.

looters were also drowned in NY CITY.
