    The bottom line is, Mother Nature has had it. Mother Nature is royally PO’ed, and she’s letting us know it.

    Time to take the hint and clean up the environment.

    I’d call this a joke except one state, North Carolina I think, made it unlawful to publish certain papers warning about Climate Change. (citation needed)

    All those people who were injured, some very badly, and all those people who lost everything they owned, that is awful.
    On top of that, many middle-class people are now plunged into the needy and deserving poor.
    And the extremists call the poor “lazy bums”! and “freeloaders”, and say “I don’t work to support others” are waiting a brief time, then will be saying it just as loud.
    The difference is only that some of these poor stricken people will not be saying it anymore.
    They are not lazy! They are not "freeloaders! We were told to LOVE our Neighbors and treat others the way we would like others to treat us!

    Nature does not respect political parties, or their positions. At times like these, we will see who cares about their fellow man. Will we be willing to help, or will this be just too expensive? Will we cut spending on tanks we are only making to provide people in Ohio with work? Was former-senator Ted Stevens willing to exchange the Bridge to Nowhere to help Katrina victims? This promises to be educational.

    Not that I disagree with you on environmentalism, but it’s spring in the tornado belt, happens regularly.

    didn’t both ok us senators voted no for sandy victims, saying it was a waste of money? wonder if they vote no for their fellow OK residents. also, in the last 7 days, 3 major tornado waves have hit (granbury, shawnee, and moore). the saying crap happens in 3s, well…

    Technically, Nature isn’t a “terrorist” (what with not having an agenda or anything….) but it sure can be an “enemy.” I can’t believe how terrible the damage was. It really breaks your heart.

    While the severity of such storms HAS increased, as predicted several decades ago with climate change, it might be noted the native tribes knew better than to depend on permanent structures across the plains in “tornado alley”.

    Seriously, Cap’n? You’re comparing global warming, which 97% of climatologists agree is happening right now, to The Wizard of Oz?

    Now, THAT’S entertainment.

    Your RSS feed still says you are on sabbatical.

    This cartoon gave me an sudden chill. When I was young, I visualized the Devil as a tornado.

    A tornado is just like a terrorist is what he is saying.
    It kills any and all. Has no mercy and does not give a damn how much you pray for it to go away.
    His art is perfect. Exactly what a tornado is. If you have never been in one thank your lucky stars.
    To those of us who have been in them, chased them, seen the aftermath of their passing, you know what I am talking about.
    Leave the politics behind, the environment behind, think of the song by Deep Purple- Stormbringer
    Rainbow shaker on a stallion twister,
    Bareback rider on the eye of the sky.
    Stormbringer coming down meaning to stay,
    Thunder and Lighning head your way.
    Ride the rainbow, CRACK the sky
    Stormbringer coming, TIME TO DIE.
    Got to keep running, Stormbringer coming.
    He’s got NOTHING you NEED
    He’s gonna make you BLEED!"
    If that aint a terrorist I don’t know what is.
    Have a child walk up to you with her dead dog in her hands covered in blood and mud wanting you to make it better.
    Then post your damn politics.
