Inhofe vs Coburn: FIGHT!

Yeah, a tornado is completely different from a hurricane.

it's weird to see one's catchphrase turned into a headline

Inhofe contended on Tuesday that the Hurricane Sandy relief bill was different because it was filled with pork. "They were getting things, for instance, that was supposed to be in New Jersey," he said on MSNBC. "They had things in the Virgin Islands. They were fixing roads there, they were putting roofs on houses in Washington, D.C. Everybody was getting in and exploiting the tragedy that took place. That won't happen in Oklahoma."

Hmmm... I wonder why this:

Gets money over a wider area than this:

"Boo hoo!  They wanted to fix things and make them more storm-resistant in the Sandy Relief bill!  WASTE!  FRAUD!  PORK!"

Be careful when you vote for "bootstraps," Okies, because you're either going to get the shaft or a fraud.

Is this an appropriate place for the "Why not both?" meme?

Ha, I assumed it was your submission.

But yeah, fark this dipshiat.

Thankfully the people of Oklahoma can always rely on the superior morality of non-republicans.

Just like when Republicans are on welfare, social security, or medicare it's also COMPLETELY different.

It's too bad the farking tornado didn't suck him out into space.

First to biatch about aid for others, first to demand handouts for himself.

So, typical GOP behavior then.

So what of this Virgin Islands pork he mentioned?
Also, who put all the pork in Sandy*?

*relief bill, that is.

This is the age we're in. Politicizing natural disasters instead of thinking about the people that are suffering. Stay classy, congress.

Why do I get the feeling that any discretionary spending income given to OK in the form of disaster relief would immediately go towards building prison complexes?

I was wondering if you were subby but the lack of a fat dog reference in the headline made me think you weren't.

Isn't this the same guy who said 'an act of terror' was different than a 'terrorist attack'?  Maybe he just doesn't know what 'different' means, and we've all been totally mistaking his positions.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Does submitter not understand what quote marks mean?


Not that you're wrong - subby is in fact part of the McJobs program - but it's ever so curious that you didn't bother to condemn the blatant hypocrisy of Inhofe.

If only there was a reason why....

One would think that in an area of the country dubbed "Tornado Alley" - that you guys would at least build elementary schools with basements or some form of a shelter, other than an interior hallway.

While folks lobby for gun legislation in this country in an attempt to prevent another Sandyhook - why aren't folks demanding a basic change to the way we design and build public schools - to prevent another Plaza Towers?

/oh, that's right - demanding better building codes for public structures isn't nearly as sexy as "assault" weapons.
 
2013-05-21 03:31:17 PM
So, people will start taking on pork to this bill, just to troll them. Either that, or attach gun control to it. That would generate serious lulz.

You're an institution around here, man.

Not to be confused with Inhofe, who belongs in an institution.

Well, from a political standpoint, Democrats wouldn't want Tea Partiers to continue living and voting.  Ok, that's not fair, but can denying services, processes and regulations from a people be considered Eugenics destined to help the human race?  Discuss...

//that baby's for you, skull

If I were a senator I would add on to this relief bill so fast, their heads would spin! I would put an assault weapons ban in their relief bill and say:

Christ it's the day after, hop off the cross. Nothing makes people unsympathetic to your cause like piling on and crying about how everything that happens is REALLY an injustice about your pet peeve.

Let the free market deal with this.

Ronald Reagan told us long ago that the most dangerous 9 words in English are "I'm from the government and I'm here to help".

Private corporations and capitalists will help people in OK better than FEMA.

I would die laughing.

"So, you say you want to provide relief to your community, but you'd also vote against this bill which would have mandatory background checks. Why do you both hate children suffering and want to cause the death of children?"

Perhaps we should chain this Inhofe and march him through the streets and let the children throw rotten melons at him. Among my people this is often the prelude to forcing him to fight some lumbering hellbeast in the gladiatorial arena.

There are several areas in the country where the ground will not allow people to build basements because it is too unstable. In particular, Oklahoma soil is mostly clay, which absorbs water and can quickly swell in size.

Clearly!

Much like in the northeast after Sandy, it's already shaping up like:

Leftist activists operating through the existing Occupy and other networks > FEMA > Red Cross > Everyone and everything else in the known universe > Capitalist anything

Insurance companies are presently lined up around the block to "help" people with their red ink stamp labeled "DENIED".
