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.
