  1. Maybe Senators Tom Coburn and Jim Inhofe should rethink that “offset the cost of disaster relief funds.” Maybe they should “get real” quickly.

    No fuss, no muss. They need Federal monies… President Obama provided. So the screaming can take a backseat.

    I don’t think now is the time to be political about what people affected by the tornado need, but it is the time to do what’s possible to lighten their burden. We’re Americans and we know what being an American means.

    My family members, including the two families (cousins) who live in Moore, are all fine. At work in the City, own a storm shelter, left work got the kids at THAT very school and found safety — so many stories were being passed by family members yesterday and into the night until everyone was accounted for. We are blessed.

  2. I don’t know, Fnord: Is Moore the REAL America?

    The sarcasm of course is deliberate, but I’m not even smiling. Sarah Palin’s throwaway line has long ceased to be funny.

    “…what being an American means.” I don’t know about that. I’m not sure anymore, that there is any agreement about that in this nation. Can we agree that the US is in a serious mess? And we probable agree more on this site about what we want but I think we are not influencing anything that will improve, substantively. I don’t believe that ‘democracy’ is working, and I fault the system, not the voting majority of the public.

    • We’ve abused the system, not used it. Maybe this has always been a fact? I always hope and see the glass half full — works best for me and mine. đŸ™‚ I believe the power of the people at the polls can make a positive impact. So few vote, and fewer cast informed votes. This is nothing new. I know for sure that allowing republicans to disenfranchise voters is not a solution!
