Federal Flood Maps Left New York Unprepared For Sandy -- And FEMA Knew It

“This is America. We never worry about ANYTHING until after it happens. I wonder what the plans are for a massive earthquake in Memphis. Probaly Nada. After all who ever heard of an earthquake in Memphis?

(The epicenter of the greatest eathquake to hit america was just a few miles north of there, but that was a few hundred years ago. Couldn't POSSIBLY happen again.)”

“What?????? I was torqued when these sanctimonious bastards started allowing PROFESSIONAL athletes to play. Now they want to play politics? If they BAN every corrupt government in the world from the Olympics it could be held one afternoon in a high school gym. Well I guess there goes Americas chance for a medal. We are, by ANY measurement, the MOST corrupt government in the world. America has a system of baksheesh that would make an Oriental potentate blush.”

“No, but the first time a MAJOR US company is SUED FOR BIG BUCKS for allowing an armed gunman into the store will be the day the NRA will sink like the Titanic. The only reason we DON'T have a sane gun control program is because the NRA has money and no one else CARES. But when it starts costing the RICH coperatations money things will change.

Look what they did to the TOBACCO companies.”

“Yeah he really sucks! Ending the war in Iraq. Getting Bin Laudon. Keeping us OUT of war. Initiaty AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE (who needs THAT?)

Don't ya miss the GOOD old days of G. W. Bush. Invading countries for NO reason, murdering THOUSANDS, Maiming more and wasting TRILLIONS of dollars that we will never see again. Deregulating Wall Street bankers so much they put the economy in the dumper. Lowering taxes for the RICH and giving them TAX breaks to send American jobs overseas.

Yes the good ole days.”

“Gee anyone ever notice that the economy is judged depending on whether RICH people make or lose money. We don't CARE that we had to borrow trillions to bail out these greedy bastards and that THEY put the economy in the dumper, (and no a ONE of them went to jail) and they are are STILL pulling these sleezy tricks. We don't care if the unemployment rate raises after THESE FOLKS exported our jobs. Don't care about the homeless. Don't care if a worker at McDonalds has to be on FOOD STAMPS. Or that WALMART collects food donations for their employees. By damn, as long as the GREEDY RICH get richer then the economy is doing GREAT.”

“More 'facts' from the NRA handbook of lies and propagada. Gee I can make up all the 'facts' I want too. The people of OOGA BOOGA island who have NO guns have zero gun deaths. It really doesn't matter how restrictive the laws are it has to do with ENFORCING THOSE LAWS. Gee How about the gun deaths in JAPAN, CANADA, AUSTRALIA and a dozen other countries that have a SANE AND SENSIBLE gun control programs. And when have you heard of a Russian walking into a school and opening fire? Or a theater? Or a place of business? Oh I forgot those are FACTS and you ain't worring about that. And where the HELL did you get the 'FACT' that 90% of mass murderers are democrats? Wow, you folks had to work overtime to come up with THAT lie. And what the hell is a LEGAL GUN OWNER?

"Those who will give up liberty for safety deserve neither," Ben Franklin. Gee how about Liberty and safety. You carrying a gun does not increase MY safety. I could explain the second amendment to you, but you simply are not smart enough to follow it.”

“I hope them Mamma Grizzlies have LOTS of bake sales. The Red Necks of the NRA might have a hard time feeding the kids but they ALWAYS have money for a new gun or their NRA dues. And that money is used to bribe (er contrubute) to goverment officials.
Other countries have sane and sensible gun control laws. Why don't WE? When was the last time you read of someone walking into a school in another country and opening fire? (Well it did happen in England years ago. So the Brits BANNED HAND GUNS. Hasn't happened since.)”

“"They can side with the gun lobby, or they can choose to protect their customers."
But to protect their customers COST money. They would MUCH rather the NRA handles that. George Zimmerman's patroling the mall.
Don't you feel MUCH SAFER knowing that EVERY man. woman or child, (why keep them safe guns from kids) you see in a Mall or anyplace else, could be packing heat. Of corse they are ALL great shots and they couldn't POSSIBLY shot you by mistake.

Yes with MORE guns we can ALL PLAY RAMBO. And don't worry if you shot somebody you can always claim self defence. (Especialy in Floida.)”

“Those who will give up liberty for safety deserve neither, Ben Franklin. And in today's world it is proven that they do not get the safety they have been told that gun free zones would bring them. Another study of Europe found that the countries with the most restrictive laws concerning guns had higher crime and murder, and suicide rates. The most violent with highest rates of murder and suicide and violent crime was Mother Russia. The most restrictive government in Europe. So in reality your saying protecting their customers rings hollow at best. And funny how the party that is all for gun control is the party that has spawned 90% of the mass shooters. Not one mass shooting was done by legal gun owners.”

““My role is to accept his apology and be humble enough to accept it and move on,” Yes, move on. PLEASE MOVE ON! Please go away. PLEASE!!!! go back under that rock you came from. Every time she opens her mouth my litte respect for the GOP slips lower. I can not think of a GREATER insult to the American people than to think they would put this BRAIN TRUST a heartbeat away from the White House. As to what Bashir said it was pretty soft compaired to what I would say about her.

She is an embarassment to the Republican party, the right wing, women in general and the entire United States of America. People in other countries point at her and LAUGH.”

“Interesting, almost every item you list are Class 3 weapons or destructive devices. All, already banned from manufacture and sale to the citizens since 1986. Private sales of used guns require a new background check, a tax, and registration of the gun. If the state you live in does not ban them altogether.”
