    Good one.
    I hope that this sort of beneficence is not denigrated as “mere socialism”.

    I agree with you on all of your points! If we as Americans can (without constantly complaining about it) not help one another in such times of disaster, then why not just live in some dog-eat-dog country instead of this great one!!

    My Red State is sending Volunteers with Food, Clothing and other needed supplies as well as human bodies to help with the clean up.

    Um, you do realize that Oklahoma is another red state don’t you? When your red state sends food, money, manpower to a BLUE state, then come back and brag about how you are just paying back their generosity to the red states. Typical epic FAIL for tigger.

    with a nod to Mr. Landers –
    Tom Coburn, Sen- OK, wants any relief money sent to OK and other communities to be offset with further spending cuts.
    When Mr. Obama was running for office in 2008, he stated we needed to start budgeting for our yearly disasters so the money would be there when needed. That was another idea that was set aside in the partisan environment of DC. I do not want him replaced with a Democrat, but I do believe the citizens of OK should find a Senator who cares more about people than money.
    @ Tigger – my compliments to your state and your compassionate attitude.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    You must be ignoring all the help that went from the southern states to the Northeast following hurricane Sandy. The only problem encountered was when some of the electricians (that had traveled through the night) were turned away because they weren’t union electricians.

    Both of you fail for trying to politicize a disaster (although several liberal politicans and one so-called comedian made fools of themselves by doing the very same thing).

    I, for one, would be perfectly happy to see relief money sent to Oklahoma offset by cuts to Senator Coburn’s salary.

    At least some of these deaths can be attributed to the state government not spending the money to construct safe rooms in schools. One of the major parties is far more likely to have that policy than the other. Like it or not, there is a political side to this tragedy. Interesting that the party that claims to be pro-life is the one that will not spend money that would actually save lives.

    The cartoon needed another “horn of plenty” showing the economic boom this will cause.. but perhaps that would have been a bit premature

    Here in Oklahoma they are making cuts but wanting to put money into fixing the capital building. Several years ago, when these problems with the building were known, “someone” decided the state needed to put a dome on the building, at private expense (which of course the state treasury had to fund to complete) Now the Governor is pushing to lower taxes and cut funding to lure businesses from other states.

    We should NEVER help these people. They’ll just develop a sense of entitlement, lose all self-initiative, and become dependent on free stuff from the nanny government. I’m not giving them a dime.

    Its your boy Coburn that is making it political.

    @Zipi

    Inhofe and Coburn (senators from Oklahoma) voted against supplying aid to others and Inhofe says “OK’s request is different”.

    Are you being ironic, or is that what you really think.
