    Thank you for keeping people focused on this Mr. Rogers. Hurricane season is coming and we may well have to deal with more damage like this, including the areas still recovering from Sandy. You can still give to the Sandy relief effort in $10 increments on your phones or at sites like this…

    Why not help yourself? When you KNOW you live in areas that are prone to big weather events you should be prepared to deal with it on your own.

    According to Ronald Reagan, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ’I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’” So what’s the problem, people?

    We Floridians do help ourselves, but right now it’s the Dry Season, which means that it’s time to keep one’s computer backed up & have a large box ready to haul out into the vehicle in case a wildfire comes our way.
    When it starts raining heavily ‘round here, then we’ll start preparing for Hurricane Season.

    Educate yourself on this. Hurricane/Flood Insurance are backed by the Federal Government. Folks who didn’t have insurance aren’t eligible for anything other than a loan for repairs/rebuilding.

    The amount allocated for the Hurricane Insurance program has turned out to be too small because the hurricanes were much, much worse than anyone expected.

    It is against my nature to wish for bad things to happen to people, even those who may deserve it. You have made rare comments in the past that made me feel you were a good person with strong opinions. Your comments, today especially, have me reconsidering this. There are many people who have had your attitude in the past. Then something terrible happened to them, and it made them reconsider.
    I do not want anything bad to happen to you or to anyone for whom you care.
    That said…
    You are the most hateful, mean spirited, hard hearted, belligerent, argumentative, vicious, and venomous commentator in this forum. You offer nothing but sarcasm and pain. Feel free to flag me whenever you see my name, I assure you I will be much faster to flag yours.

    I have flagged et2008 in the past and been criticized for doing so. I do not care about Ima’s politics. I do care that it is cruel and uncaring. I will not flag its political views, and the posting to which I am replying is not even the one I consider its worst. Perhaps I am not well, and perhaps I will be provided insights that will make me not only regret this post but will make me apologize, as I have to you. That said….
    As one who has family still recovering from Katrina…as one who knows that tropical storm insurance covers less than insurance normally does…as one who is a compassionate, caring human respectful of people in spite of political or ‘religious’ position, this calloused, cruel, and thoughtless posting, one of many by this entitiy, has struck a nerve. i respect you Howie. I even appreciate you. But do not defend this thing. It is unamerican and exists only to do harm.
    Give me a reason to think otherwise….PLEASE!
    I hate feeling this way, it demeans me, and even shames me. I will no longer address it, unless I can be convinced it is only having misguided fun for which it regrets and will no longer attack people like those who are helpless victims of a natural occurence.

    Hello Milord of Self,
    I know you and Howie spar frequently. Howie and I also have many areas of political disagreement. Perhaps you have seen more of his posts, but while Howie can be as sarcastic and partisan as any liberal on this forum, I’ve never read anything by him that was cruel. I am probably the one at fault here, and Howie may well be right to admonish me. Too many are suffering and new reports say insurance companies, many of them overwhelmed by claims from droughts, fires, tornadoes, and other disasters are slow to respond to the needs of people dealing with severe cold and an upcoming hurricane season. There is plenty of blame and responsibility to go around.
    Do not be harsh to Howie over this. His postings have never dropped to the level of…this.
    I apologize to the forum for my lack of objectivity on this matter. The first fight I ever started was against a boy who was blowing up frogs with firecrackers. I’ve never had much patience with cruelty.
    and Regretfully,

    Respectful is a good soul. It takes a lot to get him upset.

    @Respectful Troll

    You got an objection from the trolls who feel deserving of the title more than Ms Ima.
    Ms Ima puts in an occasional fact with the viotrol. Some trolls feel this sould take her out of the competition.
    Not so, pure meaness can be substituted for lies, keeping her in the contest.
    The rules for trolls are fairly simple, no sympathy for fellow humans is allowed unless they are members of the exclusive club.

    Just remember, one must sift the chaff to obtain the kernel of value.

    Some just produce more chaff than others.

    Love is all you need. And the other trite saying I was raised on (and still don’t apply well) if you have nothing good to say about someone then say nothing.

    That, Dr., is advice I will try to follow more diligently in the future. Thank you.

    As far as Brit comedy goes, I lean towards Benny Hill and Monty Python, RV.
    As far as the ‘gas bubble’ analogy, it would be more akin to a very long and foul blast at a meeting of the debate club.
    Howie had a very succinct comment under Mr. Bors cartoon today to which I replied with my full agreement.
