"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
No one is asking you to.. but improving the safety of your children in a school must come among the top priorities out there... or are you that cold hearted? It is ironic that after the shooting of all those children, the right had no problems in investing hundreds of millions in arming teachers and putting armed guards in schools..just in case a crazy guy goes not and shoots up a school again, but spending that money on protecting children from a natural disaster that happens every freaking year in the area.. no no that is tooo much.You can't guarantee everyone's safety.
No I dont think so... I fully expect they have, and like any good red state, dismissed the few million dollars as too much and then turned around and gave businesses a nice tax cut.You think no one has ever thought about shelters before?
See now you lost it totally... Tornadoes are NOT RARE. There is a reason that it is called tornado ally, and they are very common. Hell this area that was hit yesterday, was also hit not long ago and not far from there was the second worst tornado disaster.. There are tornado's every freaking year in the area, and spending a few million dollars to insure that parents dont have to risk their own lives to race to schools to save their children... is frankly money well spent.And if they built those shelters for rare use, you'd complain they were building shelter to nowhere.
Hey how about this.. revoke some of the millions given in tax breaks to business in the state for ONE YEAR, and build shelters in schools that dont have it. How hard is that? Bet you could even get the other states to pay for it, since the 2 senators of the state have no problems asking for handouts and pork for their own states, while wanting to deny it to millions after Sandy and other disasters.
Glen Beck and his organization Mercury One arrived in Moore, Okla. today with two tractor trailers full of relief supplies and 300,000 dollars worth of donations. its been less then 24 hours after the tragedy.
Can anyone tell me if there is any liberal organizations that has lifted a finger to help like that? Please i hope you can

A person will murder regardless... A gun is a just a tool.
Human emotions spur murder not guns or other tools - those are just methods - not intent.
Maybe politicians should ban emotions next?

Shame on you for your despicable and pointless attempt at a partisan swipe.

Funny, I thought we were in a political forum. And he makes a valid point. Beck doesnt go take someone elses stuff to help OK, like the govt does with FEMA.Originally Posted by marduc
