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:

The Stealth Hippopotamus: theorellior: LOL. Don't stop believing.

So you don't remember the people getting pulled off the roofs in New Orleans or the people living in their own filth in New York?


In a disaster area there's so much to pick and choose from. There were also orders of magnitude more people affected in both NOLA and NYC than in Oklahoma, so the response logistics are quite a bit different. You just happen to pick the bootstrappy portions of your disaster experience and the lazy moocher portions of disasters you didn't have any personal experience with. It's something called selection bias. It's especially prevalent when it just happens to align with your ideological mythologies.

Anyway, I bet you've been meaning to go sling hash at the local Denny's for free instead of arguing on the Internet, we know how caring and compassionate you are. When the Red Cross arrives, be sure to let them know my donation money should be used elsewhere, since you've got it all covered.

basemetal: The Stealth Hippopotamus: clambam: Really? So those businesses just gave away the tools and equipment, took the financial hit for the benefit of their neighbors? No? They got reimbursed by the federal government you say? Actually I doubt they did because I suspect you just made the whole story up. Because if you're going to be a greedy self-serving hypocrite, you might as well go whole hog and be a lying greedy self-serving hypocrite.

Project much?

I know it's hard to understand people helping other people. I know you believe that someone in the federal government has to take from someone to give to another. But when you have people trapped in a building and the local Ace Hardware has a load of shovels and pickaxes the math becomes very simple. The local Denny's throws up the doors and starts cooking eggs and hamburgers as fast as they can and generally people get down to work. Next thing you know tractor trailers full of baby formula, diapers and bottled water. It's really heart warming.

Assholes don't understand good hospitality.

I'm really hoping Chuck Schumer kicks his media whoring into high gear. Stuff the OK relief bill with "pork" like additional relief funding for Sandy victims. Then head to Oklahoma with state emergency management from NY, who have previous relief experience from six months ago, to help out. And of course the whole thing would be capped by a special Schumer press conference amid the destroyed homes talking about how NY stands with them. And throw in Peter King for good measure. Passive aggressive at its best!

I hear this argument all the time from my GOP and Libertarian friends. Esp on health care.  Oh the community will help! churches, corporations won't let people suffer. Cooperations are better at running things then the government.

All I have to say to them is Put up or shut up. Show me where that has happened on a mass scale. Show me where churches and or corporations pay for medical treatments for cancer patients without insurance and help rebuild with no profit to think about.

You mean the 12-12-12 concert funded by the Robin Hood Foundation? Which is specifically dedicated to alleviating the problems caused by the poor? The organization the George Soros donated 50 million to? The charity? It's not "capitalistic", it's a freaking charity not interested in generating wealth for itself, but for fomenting social well being.  Do you even know what capitalism means?

Look kids, stop picking on Uncle Jim.

Let's do a breakdown of this:

1) The Northeast (blue states) receives less federal funding than red states and therefore has PROVEN that they can get by with less federal spending on them, even though they are soulless Godless heathens without the least bit of work ethic.

2) The Red States receive more federal funding than the Northeast, which shows that they are dependent on federal spending and continually need it, even though they are God-fearing angels who really are bootstrappy but it's Fartbotox keeping them down...somehow.

So, there you have it, Red States need it because they have shown themselves to be deficient in self-sufficiency, despite their entire schtick of loving small government.  The Aristocrats.

The political reality is they have to be hypocritical assholes. We Oklahoman's demand both ideological purity and government money. Trust me, us liberals are simply reviled here. I mean loathed to an unhealthy and unbalanced degree in the state. But if you peak under the conservative dress, you don't have to stare to long to see that the state loves a liberal government spending money and dictating personal lives. And since the entire state seems to suffer from texas envy, we try to beat them at conservatism. Never mind the fact that we suckle the sweet government teet with the best of them. We just want to pretend we want what we say is true, even if we would screech if any actual budget balancing happened. Because prosperity Jesus, in his infinite financial wisdom, said so. mammon.

skullkrusher: A Dark Evil Omen: Leftist activists operating through the existing Occupy and other networks > FEMA > Red Cross > Everyone and everything else in the known universe > Capitalist anything

yeah you keep saying that. No one believes you.
Occupy Sandy did not do more good than the Red Cross and FEMA. It is simply not true. The only people who WOULD accept that are idiots and liars.

This is not to diminish the incredible generosity of the people involved with Occupy Sandy and other grassroots efforts - they gave out of the goodness of their hearts and made a difference in the places they served. It is to diminish bald faced liars like you.

Stop making a farking ass of yourself.

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.
