Hey, isn’t this one of the states whose congressmen voted against aid to Hurricane Sandy victims??

More importantly this is the state that was hit hardest by Hurricane Katrina – New Orleans didn’t have anything on us. Instead of houses just being flooded, they were completely blown away. In many cases, only slabs were left. However, we don’t need the government to bail us out every time a disaster comes our way.

There were other issues attached to that bill than just Hurricane Sandy victims. Nobody understands disaster more than those of us on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We also understand that no one can help us better than we can help ourselves. I support congressman Palazzo because he wasn’t willing to compromise the integrity of our country’s debt crisis. Don’t get me wrong, federal aid is nice – but not at the expense of our nations well being. You should really have a problem with the politicians who decided to take advantage of people needing aid and using their misfortune to push their agendas through.

I’m sure the families of the over 1,500 who died in Louisiana would trade their intact houses, which are few, for the lives of their dead loved ones. You can put a price on houses, but not on human beings. This is not a contest, but if it was, which would have the most impact, dead bodies, or destroyed houses?

Ummm… no. Does that mean that God is smiting the climate-change whiners in New York with hurricanes, storms, and blizzards? No. this is just weather. Besides “global warming” is what stopped the ice age… hmmm, must have been all of those Cro-magnon tribes and their campfires.
