FTFA: "Brewer was also asked if the state could use its surplus to help the community recover. She maintained it is the federal government's responsibility."

sugardave: But, see, Sandy was a hurricane and just a little gusty wind plus some water.  Water good

Essentially a food additive, from what I hear...

sugardave: doyner: Satanic_Hamster: Muta: Those are great questions. Does anyone know if the the houses were on state for federal land?

I'd hazard that not a single house was on federal land.  Not to say that most of the fire wasn't on federal land but the feds don't usually let people put domiciles on their land.

You know, too lazy to look.  I don't suppose there's any good quotes from Jan or her state's congressmen about denying aid to the NE over Sandy?

These guys are in the Congressional record as saying "NO"

Paul Gosar (R-AZ)

But, see, Sandy was a hurricane and just a little gusty wind plus some water.  Water good.

Arizona has a fire.  Fire bad (like Obama).

Well, you don't hear about WATER and BRIMSTONE, do ya?

The Derp Brigade is having a hard time lately.  We should all feel really sorry for them.  Maybe we could flay the skin off their backs and make them some new bootstraps?

My opposition to the governor's politics justifies my willingness to let uninvolved civilians suffer.

Anyone who disagrees is a partisan hack.

Because after all, the state's surplus is there to offset tax cuts.

We sold them to Bootstraps, Inc. and can't afford the fees anymore because tax cuts.

I wish I could appeal a company's finding when they turn down my application for a job.
