    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.

    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

    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.

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

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

    @Nantucket19

    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.
