A Pretty Bad Idea

Okay, maybe it’s just me, but finding out that the founder of Domino’s Pizza is building an All Catholic Town (no, it won’t be called Christville) in south Florida is one of those things that makes me go, “Hmm?” Let’s ignore that blatant religious flauntings, trampling of American Freedoms, massive cost ($250,000,000), and whatever else to focus on the common sense of this.
I point you to Exhibit A which shows the location of this thing. Now, I point you to Exhibit B which shows areas most at risk for hurricanes in Florida. Do you happen to notice anything that I don’t know, might completely freakin’ overlap as the direct route for the Hurricane Belt in Florida!!!
I guess these folks are thinking that they’re safe because they’re doing God’s Will and he’ll see them through a natural disasters. But, I gotta tell you that God’s Will ain’t lookin’ too shiney these days considering the heap of devastation in recent years down in the South. I’m sure Governor Jeb Bush is gonna look out for his peeps there, but really, there’s not much you can do when 150 MPH winds are tossing trees into your home.
It all seems like a bad idea to me, but then again, so does building homes in the California Sacramento Valley that are below the level of the major rivers and right next to the levees. People are just kinda dumb sometimes. I say this as I sit in San Francisco with an earthquake fault running under my chair though.
The moral of the story? Don’t buy from Domino’s unless you want to support things like this. Also, Ave Maria has a whole new meaning these days…
