Let's see how some of them feel when their districts get hit by natural disasters. Dicks.

re: #2 HappyWarrior
When the 500 year flood hit North GA in 2009 the weekend after many in the region returned from a Glenn Beck rally in D.C., the same people who claim to hate President Obama and FEMA were looking to the president and the agency to help them. VP Biden came to GA the Thursday after the flood hit the area, and the comments on the Atlanta Journal article about him were vile. They thought nothing of bashing the VP for coming to GA while our then-governor, Sonny Perdue, was in Mexico, supposedly on a mission to bring jobs to the state. I don't think Perdue ever visited the area, but that was OK with the right-wingers because he has an (R) beside his name. The right-wingers here in GA are some of the biggest liars and hypocrites on the planet. They are also truly heartless individuals when it comes to helping their fellow citizens and only care about a certain thing after it happens to them.

Yes, Republicans are harmful to us all and you're right to be angry, but when you say things like "republiscum," you sound as bad as the idiots who say "Libtard."

re: #4 JeffFX

I don't entirely agree for a few reasons that aren't really important. However, I do think that if you are going to use childish insults (deserved or not), then you need to switch it up frequently.

Your fake outage make you sound like the idiots who say "Libtard."

The sole Republican on my FB page claims that the bill had pork on it, packed on by Democrats. Admittedly I haven't read the entire bill. For those who have, is there any truth to the above claim?

re: #7 Eclectic Infidel

It depends on your definition of pork....

One example touted by republicans was $150 million towards Alaskan fisheries. Sounds bad right?

That money is actually intended to allow FEMA to pay for removal of debris caused by the Japanese Tsunami of 2011 which is now posing a navigation hazard in the pacific northwest.

On one hand it's not directly related to Sandy, but on the other it's necessary funding for FEMA to carry out disaster relief.

The vast, vast majority of the 60 billion requested in aimed at funding insurance claims and rebuilding funds for the northeast.

Healing Is the Message at Interfaith Service for Victims of Sunday’s Shootings
Clergy of different faiths, joined by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, delivered messages of hope and unity Thursday before more than 1,300 people gathered at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park. "A pall has been cast over our great nation," Holder said. "We gather today not in joy, but in solemn reflection." The overall message, however, was focused on the power of ...

More Than Half the Women in These Countries Are Married by the Time They Turn 18
The report is as sad as it is horrifying.

The 14-year-old girl, Wasila Umaru, was married to the 35-year-old man last week. Although she told authorities she was forced into the betrothal, Wasila will ...

Criminalizing Expectant Mothers - NYT
Even by the standards of the growing Republican assault on the lives and rights of women, a new bill passed by bipartisan majorities in both houses of Tennessee's Legislature recently stands out for being meanspirited and counterproductive. If signed by the state's Republican governor, Bill Haslam, the legislation would give Tennessee the dubious distinction of being the first state to specifically authorize the ...

Calgary stabbings: How knife crime in Canada can cause ‘moral panic’
What Calgary police chief Rick Hanson called the "worst mass murder" in the city's history didn't end at the barrel of a gun. Instead, the 22-year-old suspect identified on Tuesday as Matthew de Grood is accused of entering the kitchen at a house party, taking "a large knife" and using it to fatally stab four men and one woman, all of whom were students ...

Back Story of Yasiel Puig’s Journey to America Should Concern Dodgers
Seemingly from the moment Cuban refugee Yasiel Puig showed up at Dodger Stadium out of nowhere, arriving last June unwilling to discuss his unknown background, the talk behind the batting cages has been rife with unprintable rumors. There were rumors Puig was smuggled out of Cuba by members of a Mexican drug cartel. There were rumors he still owed the smugglers money, and ...

New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.
Ben Mathis-Lilley, Slate: New York Electoral College: State Joins National Popular Vote Interstate Compact. Instead of pushing for a Constitutional amendment, which would have to be ratified in 38 states, advocates ask individual state legislatures to pass an agreement: that they'll pledge all their presidential electors to the winner of the national popular vote as soon as enough other states pass the law to ...

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories
The Rocket Boys In the late 1930s, a group of Caltech graduate students were booted off campus after blowing up (part of!) their building during a rocket test gone awry. Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...

 Frank says:

Well Mike, I'm abnormal. -- When FZ appeared on the Mike Douglas show (solo, playing guitar with recorded backup), Mike said "Your latest album is called Zoot Allures. How do you come up with such names for your records?" (or something equally banal!) Frank's succinct reply is printed above.
