    We are, but that does not mean every topic has to be a partisan cesspool. It is revolting to see someone trying to score some cheap political points off from something like this for no good reason whatsoever.

    Mother nature is being a twat - anyone see the weather? Nothing but rain from OK City to east of me . . . entirely hampering any recovery efforts.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Really? You know that? Please provide inside information to support your claim. I guess this would be the same to you?

    Report: Kevin Durant donates $1 million to tornado relief

    BTW: Assume for a moment you're right...the fact remains, Beck and Durant helped. And you? Soros? Biden?

    Briarwood, Plaza Towers Elementary Schools Hit By Tornado In Moore, Oklahoma ...If you feel someone is breaking a rule, report it. Going off topic to accuse them of doing such is baiting in and of itself. Lets stick to the topic folks

    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.



    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.



    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.
    The mayor of tornado-ravaged Moore, Oklahoma says he'll try to get an ordinance passed requiring storm shelters or safe rooms in new housing projects. "I have six councilmen and I need four votes to get it passed," Mayor Glenn Lewis told CNN today.
    You happy now?

    Beck couldn't win with you if he sold all he owned and gave it to the victims in OK. Got any sources to support the allegation that GOP calls the Red Cross "liberals"?
