The Cruelest Irony Of All In The Tornado Wracked States
Last edited Sat Mar 3, 2012, 11:43 PM USA/ET - Edit history (2)
It is the most cruel irony of all for the states and communities that were completely trashed by a savage mother nature. The very part of the country that hates Obama the most, is the most racist and bigoted, is the most extremely insanely religious, is homophobic, hate the poor, the welfare clients, the food stamp recipient, immigrants, the unemployment claimant and other government leeches will need those same services themselves. The situation is truly sad and tragic and these citizens should get the help from the federal government and public employees they hate and vilify so much.
These latest events are truly tragic for that region and the nation. Nothing will ever be the same again. More frighteningly these tornadic trends now may be a permanent weather feature every year now. The patterns of recent years are unprecedented in our weather history. It is almost undeniable that something is amiss in the weather patterns. Deniability would seem inconceivable for any reasonable person.
These communities are are completely devastated and even what little that is untouched is not fully operational. Their economy will suffer for months and even years until it is leveled again by future storms. It is not a matter of if but when in the new age of climate change that they will be struck again. Yet they so enthusiastically deny global warming.
They will need food stamps, unemployment insurance, welfare, free health care, federal loans and federal dollars to rebuild their communities. They will need FEMA to help piece back their shattered landscape. The teabagger element and haters will now have to depend on that they most loath and would deny others. The question is will the largesse that they will receive from the federal government change their black hearts or will they be steadfast in their hatred. Will they still hate Obama because he is black or will they understand that his color is irrelevant to what he will do as president.
To say their plight is God's revenge would be begging the question. No one can discern God's intentions for those who believe.
All we know is that the cruelty of nature is random and unpredictable. Most of all the people who hate the most will now have to depend on the kindness of that they most vilify. What if there was NO government to step in. The states certainly do not have enough money to fix the damage.

In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

No, they won't. They'll rebuild by themselves, employ each other and work to get back on their feet. If they do take any government aid, it will be temporary. That's the difference between the people whose homes and businesses are shattered temporarily and those who spend their lives turning the safety net into a hammock. The former are victims of a disaster that they will recover from, while the latter are inflicting perpetual disaster on themselves.

No, the question is whether this idiot can accept the idea that people can disagree with the policies of someone who is openly hostile to them, whose policies are calculated to promote ideals that most of us find repugnant, without being bigots? His color is irrelevent. Jimmy Carter wasn't particularly dark-hued, and he was loathed by the electorate.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

I understand that boards have to have some supervision, because I have seen what happens when they don't. The St. Pete Times bulletin board was shut down because a handful of regular posters got to the point where all they did was post the equivalent of "Derp Derp" and "I'm not stupid you're stupid." as well as vulgarities. But if that is an extreme, then so is what we see at DU and FR. I think what it really comes down to is that whether a board claims to have 50 members or 100,000 members, a fraction of those are regular posters, and an even smaller fraction control the board through thread activity.

"Sure, they've got class. 'Low' is a class, right?"
