    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!!

    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.

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

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

    Think of NeoconMan as being in the same category as Michael wme.

    Inhofe’s rationale is easy to understand: “We’re REAL Americans and deserve the help. They AIN’T, and DON’T.”

    Coburn and Inhofe are both an embarrassment in the Senate, and I’d say Oklahoma deserves them, but nobody does.


    The power of these storms is increasing, despite the denier attitude of Coburn and Inhofe, but even WITHOUT the increase in severity, folks who’ve never witnessed them, have no comprehension the power of “natural events” like hurricanes or tornadoes. Add in the damage caused by “man made features” blowing apart and becoming shrapnel, and you have serious impacts (literally).


    The damage Coburn and Inhofe have done to our government, natural resource management, and economy, nationally, reaches far beyond the borders of Oklahoma.

    Good for you and your state. People in my state (the sometimes conservative hated California) not only make individual contributions to such as the Red Cross, we also heavily support federal disaster relief in all its forms, by paying $1.00 in federal taxes for every $0.78 in return federal benefits that we receive. I know that this is somewhat unfair, but we are ALL apart of this great country, and so other states that do not pay so much are even just as welcome to our federal largesse as anyone else. So, you are very welcome indeed. And to you and those in Oklahoma, please do have a Great Day!!

    Think of neoconman the same way as Stephen Colbert.

    How can you even possibly make such an acrimonious post with even a straight face?
    It IS an absolutely known fact the the blue states on the coasts are not only the true economic engines of the US, but they are by for the heaviest contributors to the federal treasury. Californians alone send $1.00 in federal taxes, and only get back $0,78 in federal benefits. While for the most part the red states send far fewer dollars to the federal government in taxes and get back far more in benefits. One of the worst of these “taker” red states is Mississippi where they sent $1.00 in federal taxes, and get back some $2.50 in federal benefits. It IS exactly the opposite of your post! And we in such states as California do not even mind this, as we are ALL a part of the US. But what we do not like is the continued hatred on such states as our own!
