B0BummerAckbar cares more about cramming hot, meaty, throbbing health insurance down our expectantly moist throats than he does keeping people safe from natural disasters.

God help us all if hurricane Karen finds tropical storm Henry's gun.

It's gonna be kind of hard for a hurricane to hit Montana.

Fortunately, Fartbongo's weather machine hasn't been affected by the shutdown. Expect a Class 5 Hurricane over Billings MT later next week.

Judging by what happened in the wake of Katrina, I dare say those of us in New Orleans probably wouldn't notice any difference. I'd prefer we not test that hypothesis, though.

Newsflash worthy?

Well, Neil Armstrong's death didn't get that, and yet a storm that might just turn into a bigger storm that might just make landfall is deserving of such?

The Texas portion of this also corresponds to the drought map, so bring it on, Karen!

FEMA is an essential service and has not been closed I know 2 people who work for FEMA and while they are complaining about having to cancel scheduled vacations, they are still going to work and getting paid.

It is always a safe bet to assume that Gulf hurricanes will make landfall at or near deep-red GOP districts.  That is sort of bread-and-butter GOP country, there.

Why don't they just call it hurricane Obama? It's all going to be his fault right?

Would that be the worst thing?  A couple of good disasters and people might actually start holding the idiots in charge responsible.

Maybe.

/probably not.
 
2013-10-03 12:58:26 PM
Ha Ha! It's funny cause they don't work when the government isn't shut down.

I'll be glad to see those red state retards suffer, I already emailed my rep about withholding aid to red state districts with representatives who enabled the shutdown.

I wonder if they would blame Bush for the poor response since so many LA bozos blame Obama and HE wasn't around at the time.

Knowingly, willfully, and unnecessarily causing the deaths of citizens will be a little more than just people holding people responsible

FEMA isn't much help anyway*.  Dealt with them a year ago - more interested in disaster-porn photo ops than actually doing anything.  Actually had my wife and I take a mattress off the rubbish pile and photograph us putting it back on as two of their employees swooped in to "help".  It was both funny and infuriating.  My wife was even more pissed off than I was.

*And by FEMA, I mean the six employees I dealt with, who may or may not represent the agency as a whole

Given the size of the typical hurricane, even Sandy made landfall "at or near" deep-red districts.

Granted, Karen is on path to nail Chocolate City.

Yeah, because that's exactly how a democratic republic works.   You should run for Congress.

Telling them to "fark off" wasn't an option? Just say "You want a photo op of y'all helping? Go rip out my carpets and all the drywall below 4 feet. Take as many pictures as you want."
