    Absolutely, people should have to suffer because of what their governor said, regardless of if they voted for him or not.

    Oh, and what he actually said was
    "There's a lot of different scenarios, we've got a great union. There's absolutely no reason to dissolve it."

    Councilman and I tend to place America first and the interests of Americans first.

    Meaning...America should do what is best for Americans first and worry about the worlds problems only after our problems at home are solved NOT some bull**** conflict in Libya involving muslim rebels...and at the end NONE of those ME contries (rebels) gives a **** for the US, or possesses the least bit of enduring gratitude or would remain a friend of the US one second longer than they needed our money or protection

    Hasn't Gov. Perry talked of seceding from the union, and now he wants (another) handout from the Federal government?

    And what was your attitude towards the federal governments assistance for New Orleans?

    Was it, why did not the mayor/ governor prepare, plan better, it is a state or city issue not one of the federal government

    Let's be honest. Money tends to go where it is most needed. As bad as these fires are, right now more money is needed in Alabama for the storm recovery.

    During this fire season, the federal government has been supporting the State of Texas with 22 Fire Management Assistance Grant (FMAG) declarations, including 16 FMAGs since the beginning of April; and through FEMA, stands ready to assist as needed.

    Cooper Mountain Ranch Fire (Texas)
    An FMAG was declared on April 15, 2011 (designated FEMA-2889-FM-TX) for the Cooper Mountain Ranch Fire burning in Kent, Stonewall, and Fisher Counties.

    Wichita Fire Complex (Texas)
    An FMAG was declared on April 15, 2011 (designated FEMA-2891-FM-TX) for the Wichita Fire Complex burning in Wichita County.

    Wildcat Fire (Texas)
    An FMAG was declared on April 15, 2011 (designated FEMA-2892-FM-TX) for the Wildcat Fire burning in Coke and Tom Green Counties.

    Hohertz Fire (Texas)
    An FMAG was declared on April 16, 2011 (designated FEMA-2893-FM-TX) for the Hohertz Fire burning in Palo Pinto County.

    East Sidwynicks Fire (Texas)
    An FMAG was declared on April 16, 2011 (designated FEMA-2894-FM-TX) for the East Sidwynicks Fire burning in Eastland County.

    PK East Fire (Texas)
    An FMAG was declared on April 16, 2011 (designated FEMA-2895-FM-TX) for the PK East Fire burning in Palo Pinto County.

    Bryson Fire Complex (Texas)
    An FMAG was declared on April 17, 2011 (designated FEMA-2896-FM-TX) for the Bryson Fire Complex burning in Jack County.

    Pinnacle Fire (Texas)
    An FMAG was declared on April 17, 2011 (designated FEMA-2898-FM-TX) for the Pinnacle Fire burning in Travis County.

    A full listing of FMAGs that have been declared for the state of Texas can be found on our website here.

    FEMA seems to be giving more assistance to Texas than they have since 2005.

    But let's not let ****ing numbers and **** get in the way of a good talking point.

    Re: Governor says Obama leaving Texas in the dust

    You know, I am really, really pissed off that people (and they exist on both sides of the aisle) are using the Alabama tragedy as a political football. Where the **** is your humanity, guys? As of right now, there are 349 dead, and the death toll is still rising. There are also more than 400 still missing, and you can presume that the majority of those are also dead. Untold thousands have been injured, and untold thousands have lost everything they have. It will take years to rebuild what has been destroyed in Alabama and 7 other states, and the memory of what happened will NEVER be erased. This is the worst tornado outbreak since the Great Depression. And all that some people can do is use these poor unfortunates to score a few ****ing political points? This is just disgusting. Absolutely disgusting. So disgusting that I am at a complete loss for words to adequately describe it.

    I don't agree with Alabama's politics, but God damn it, as far as I am concerned, today we are ALL Alabamans. As for the political assholes, on both the right and left, they deserve a kick in the nuts, and maybe an F-5 tornado in their own lives. Then let's see how political these morons get.

    Although Texas is a net feeder at the federal government trough.... but if they decided to split, I sure would not miss them.
