  •  Yet we keep bailing them out (7+ / 0-)

    In NJ, getting a government loan to rebuild after Sandy comes with requirements for rebuilding, like raising the home. Let's hope FEMA attaches requirements to the money requiring residents in Moore to build storm shelters. It won't prevent damage, but it could reduce injuries and save lives.

    I have heard some Moore parents complaining that the school did not have a storm shelter. Maybe they should consider these things when voting in the GOP anti-regulation, anti-government idiots.

     Funny how the government is just great when it is helping you out because you didn't insure your home despite living in a tornado zone, but the government sucks when it wants to help people who didn't buy health insurance--we're supposed to help uninsured tornado victims build new houses but let uninsured car crash or cancer victims die.

    I feel sorry for the kids and others suffering through no fault of their own, but I have little sympathy for people so unsympathetic to anyone but themselves that they support republican policies against the government helping anyone.
