The Stealth Hippopotamus: Does submitter not understand what quote marks mean?
factoryconnection: "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.
Jackson Herring: it's weird to see one's catchphrase turned into a headline
Corvus: Just like when Republicans are on welfare, social security, or medicare it's also COMPLETELY different.
s2s2s2: So what of this Virgin Islands pork he mentioned?Also, who put all the pork in Sandy*?*relief bill, that is./wiiiiiiink
neongoats: Corvus: Just like when Republicans are on welfare, social security, or medicare it's also COMPLETELY different.Yep no one helped them when they were on food stamps and welfare and unemployment and medicaid and living in public housing and eating wic cheese.
sdd2000: Since we have now heard from both Senate members from OK can we hear from some of the house members?[s8.postimg.org image 719x960]
MrSteve007: 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?[i2.cdn.turner.com image 640x360]/oh, that's right - demanding better building codes for public structures isn't nearly as sexy as "assault" weapons.

InmanRoshi: 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?
pacified: 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.
