Well, actually, they don't have any food, but you will get a voucher for food which may or may not be able to exchange for enough to eat.

FlashHarry: why don't people just fly west to their summer houses?


Some people don't have multiple houses.

These people should borrow a house from their parents.

Hollie Maea: If his bus gets stuck and has to be rescued, he will lose the election badly.


That's precisely why he should fark the bus and take his wife's dancing horse. Rafalca don't give a shiat about road debris. Romney should gallop into Jersey with a big ole mess of cheesy grits in one hand, and Old Glory in the other. The news helicopters will put a spotlight on him, and on TV, he'll be glowing just like Jesus after the Resurrection.

Election over.

Hurricane Etch-a-Sketch will result in a lot of campaign promises by Romney that will appear, to the malevolent liberals, as complete reversals, but that conservatives will recognize as having ALWAYS been his positions.

teeny: I'm okay with this.

I'll admit, I am having fun imagining Paul Ryan walking up to some victim and yanking a bottle of water out of their hands so that he could be photographed giving it back to them. Then, after using some hand sanitizer, gets back into his limo and drives away.


You should forward that idea to SNL. You might get a t-shirt or something.

Seriously guys? Let's not take up the tactics of our friends on the right, yes?

/FFS

Nothing new, there've been loads of people doing the same thing on twitter. I figured it' make it to Fark eventually, the level of loathing and over-the-top mouth foaming that has been happening here lately.


Four years of mentally deficient racist cocksuckers going on about Islam and socialism and Michelle Obama indoctrinating children into Islamomarxahomoism via healthy eating and OMG Obamacare RUN! and RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE RAPE tend to make sane people cranky.

No. We should fight fire with fire. Kerry played it nice and he lost. Dukakis played it nice and he lost BIG! Bill Clinton DIDN'T play it nice and he won (twice). You dissed Bill and he'd chase you down the street with a board with a nail sticking out of it.

Conservatives love picking on people who won't fight back.

SacriliciousBeerSwiller: oren0: Real life: Mitt Romney sends a bus full of relief to hurricane victims. What a jerk.
Alternate universe where he doesn't do this: Mitt Romney has a whole bus he's not using, why isn't he using it to deliver relief to hurricane victims? What a jerk.

No, actually. I don't think anyone had any expectation, or even considered, that he should send in his bus.

False dichotomy is false.


There is no response R/R could have had that the left wouldn't criticize. Campaigning is out, and doing nothing would make him look ineffectual. Choosing to help, even as a symbolic gesture that encourages others to give, is a good thing. People who are trying to characterize it otherwise are partisan hacks.

Tigger: oldernell: Rmoney should leave this to the real relief agencies and FEMA, who are organized for this sort of thing. Perhaps they will have the good sense to contact the RED CROSS and deliver what they collect to their centralized distribution point, but I doubt it.

The Red Cross has already explained how this sort of shiat hampers relief efforts.

While it may sound nice in some sort of romantic Dickensian feeding pickpockets by showing up with a tin of soup and some crusts of bread sort of way. it's actually totally farking useless and annoying.

All this stuff has to be sorted, cleaned, prepped etc and that costs relief workers time that they don't have.

Donate money. That's what they need.


Five bucks says most of the donations to the Romney bus will be in the form of broken furniture, old stained clothing and cases of outdated creamed corn. Because the poors will be grateful for anything they can get, and frankly it feels better than just taking it to the dump.

Why would he? Romney said during a primary debate that FEMA needs to be canceled, and that federal outlays for disaster relief are "immoral"


Funny, that bit has suddenly disappeared from his website.
