    It amazes me that people like you refuse to spend money on basic safety for your children in tornado ally, but have no problem giving billions in handouts to big business... pathetic.
    No doubt we waste money on Spain too. You can't guarantee everyone's safety. You think no one has ever thought about shelters before? And if they built those shelters for rare use, you'd complain they were building shelter to nowhere.

    So loosing the argument and then you resort to attacks on areas totally outside the scope of the thread?

    You can't guarantee everyone's safety.
    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 think no one has ever thought about shelters before?
    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.

    And if they built those shelters for rare use, you'd complain they were building shelter to nowhere.
    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.

    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.

    Sure they do. Regardless, at least with Chicago murders something could be done to prevent them but the Chicago political machine has no interest in stopping it. Not a lot can be done to stop and EF-5 tornado as far as I know.

    One cannot prevent another from murdering another....

    You really think a gun is the only tool to kill?

    Hell, I could break a plastic fork and kill you with it.... funny how there are no guns in prison yet people get whacked all the time.

    Yeah that attitude might be why Chicago has a lot of murders. Might as well fire all the police and use the money on more medical examiners while you are at it.

    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?

    I can't. But, I can point out an idiot liberal Senator who blames global warming and the Republicans for the damage done.

    Dem. leader (already) blames tragic tornado on Republicans | Human Events

    I cannot tell you, nor do I care to make political points of this tragedy. All that I care is that support and help is there - I am sure Glenn Becks organization is not the only one mobilized/mobilizing, there are likely many more, including ones that are not so eager to spout off and toot their horn about their efforts.

    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.
