I am watching a show where Republicans and Democrats are arguing about how much they care about New Orleans and fixing the city after Katrina devastated it.

I do not care. I do not care at all. It has nothing to do with me, it's not where I live, and I do not want any of my money going to it. If you care, I have no problem with that. If you want to give your money to it, I have no problem with that. But I do not care, I do not want my money going to it, and I see no rational reason why my money should go to it.

This is not "selfishness," at least, not in a negative sense. I do not expect people in New Orleans to care if Seattle gets flooded, and am against our state seeking funds for repairs to help prevent that. I am personally embarassed that my (former) state benefitted to the tune of billions of federal dollars for the Big Dig; why should anyone in Montana care that people in Boston can get a brand new highway system?

If New Orleans never "comes back" it won't adversely affect me at all, and I do not care, and there is no reason why I should care. slashdot.org
