Mr. Climate Change-Denier Himself....

...has no problem taking federal money for the enormous wreckage left behind after monster tornadoes unleashed their fury in OK. After all, he says, this is way different than Hurricane Sandy! And his cohort Snidley Coburn insists that any aid money "must" be offset by other budget cuts.

What I want to know is, when will a monster twister touch down on the Senate and House buildings??

From Raw Story:

Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) seemed to contradict his colleague Sen. Tom Coburn’s (R-OK) stance on Tuesday on federal assistance for victims of the Moore, Oklahoma tornado, suggesting that there will be help coming. But he also differentiated that need from his opposition to aid for victims of Hurricane Sandy.

“That was totally different,” he told MSNBC host Kris Jansing, saying that requests for help after the hurricane went instead to “things in the Virgin Islands. They were fixing roads there. They were putting roofs on houses in Washington, D.C. Everyone was getting in and exploiting the tragedy that took place. That won’t happen in Oklahoma.”

As ThinkProgress reported at the time, Inhofe joined Coburn and 35 other Republican senators in January 2013 in voting against a $50.5 billion aid package for communities hit by the storm, saying it contained too much “pork.”..... More here.

These "people" are no longer human. They should be treated as less than human - like the animals they are. They have no compassion for anyone they consider beneath them.

Yet when their "equals suffer" because some may have to pay a miniscule amount more in taxes, you'd think the world was ending.

No, they need to be treated like the animals they (legally?) allow to be abused. Put them in cages too small for them to move around in; take away their glasses; take away their three meals a day; treat them just the way they ignore the cows and chickens and dogs and cats that are abused. And let's film their misery then make it illegal to use that film to expose their treatment.

It's way past time for the bull shit "Well, if we do that, we're no better than they are!" Fuck that. I'm so sick of hearing that from liberals. Those animals do their shit because they know they can get away with it, because liberals have always been too compassionate. But no more. It's time to play the same game as they do.

And by no means should this "equality" be limited to politicians. Wall Streeters, Banksters, CEOs, maybe especially lobbyists (or a better name for them might be beggers, lackies, ass kissers, boot lickers, sycophants), anyone who believes themself better than others should be on that list. Talk about people with low or no self esteem! Lobbyists exemplify those descriptions to the 6th decimal point! There are many things we can live without in this world - lobbyists may be near the top of that list.

Some of us were forced to do things we didn't want to do...to help feed the egos and bank accounts of political and business vermin who could never imagine our kind of situation, but a situation they created. There are times when I wonder why those others didn't suffer instead of what we were forced to do other people somewhere else.


It's time to give credence to the media excuse "Both sides do it!"

Make no mistake, we have to do what "both" sides do. Or give up.

So, FT, I gather you don't care too much for the senior senator from Oklahoma? ;-) Or, any of the other dickheads for that matter...

I met Inhofe when he was probably at his lowest point in life. I was associated with a "free university", Praxis Project, in Tulsa at the time. He had just gotten his ass drilled into the ground by his Democratic opponent in an early '70s gubernatorial election, and he came out of seclusion and joined some of our meetings. He brought his wife (or, it's more likely, she brought him) and stood around like the numbskull that he is. His wife did all the talking for him, and was very cordial and engaging. He, however, looked like a deer caught in headlights, and probably never had been in a room full of real liberals before, talking about real life issues. He was literally speechless. Unfortunately for Oklahoma, and the nation as a whole, he found his voice...and his footing, and reached the pinnacle of power for his miserable state -- the Burgundy of the reddest of the red states.

Maybe we should just play "red state/blue state" to its most logical conclusion. If a state goes Democratic in the last election, federal aid is available. If your state chooses to side with the heartless Republican nominee...well, tough luck, "No soup for you!"

I'll bet you these red states -- all of 'em -- would be voting Democratic in about one election cycle. Maybe then those stupid moronic fuckers would figure it out.

Pardon my language, Anna, but I got caught up in the moment.
