You're right about one thing, it's lucky for those poor people suffering from the devastation of the climate change killer tornadoes in Oklahoma that Obama's FEMA is better trained , well-organized , and capable of quick-rescue relief to disaster areas(unlike Bush 43)--look at the Obama's Government quick response to Super-Climate-Storm Sandy or the BP Deepwater Oil Rig explosion and spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

You're overexaggerating just a wee bit.

Maybe if the democrats hadn't voted to take down Saddam knowing exactly what the UN knew and having the same Intel and then voted to fund the military along with the republicans, you could place blame on just one side.

Unfortunately for you, you can't.

Just like democrats are equally responsible for the housing market collapse - some say more.

Michelle Bachmann is in big trouble. "A new Public Policy Polling survey finds businessman Jim Graves, the likely Democratic nominee for Bachmann's House seat, leading the Tea Party congresswoman by a 47 to 45 percent margin. Graves' narrow advantage, which is well within the poll's margin of error, is a huge red flag for Bachmann considering the strong Republican lean of Minnesota's 6th congressional district. Find out why the poll is just the start of the bad news for Bachmann." http://www.nationalmemo.com/poll-graves-narro... Jim Graves barely missed defeating Bachmann in 2012 by a mere 5,000 votes despite between outspent by the republican 12 to 1.

It must be an embarrassment to be the oldest illiterate in your trailer park. You can remedy that situation. Get a public library card and the librarian can help you in your adult remedial reading classes.Every one knows that the mortgage meltdown was caused by Bush 43's Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson ignoring the crisis as trivial until it was too late.

You might also think twice about getting in that big a$$ truck again to drive to the local store. Because all of us have contributed into making these events turbo charged with global warming. Not once every ten years but now these are annual disasters. No Economy can keep taking those hits but you can sure keep ignoring the obvious.
Develop some ethics and a heart then come back and talk to us.

As far as the Iraq War:

Congress authorized the 2003 use of armed force against Iraq by votes of 296-133 in the House and 77-23 in the Senate in a Joint Resolution to Authorize the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq.

Kerry, Biden and Reid were among the many democrats who voted for the Iraq War.

As far as the housing market crisis:

President Bush went to Congress repeatedly for years warning them that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were going to destroy the economy (17 times in 2008 alone). Democrats continuously ignored him and shut down his proposals along party lines.

No one was making bad loans to unqualified people until Democrats threatened to drag banks into court and have them fined if they didn't go along with the left's Affirmative Action lending policies.

Even the New York Times warned in the late 1990s that Democrats continuing to force banks into lowering their standards would lead to this exact catastrophe.

More severe weather is expected on Tuesday from the Great Lakes across the Mississippi River Valley and into central Texas. Primary threats will be very large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes.

As someone pointed out on another website concerning the Iraq War: "There is no reason to be any more forgiving of Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, or Harry Reid than we are of George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, or Condoleezza Rice."

Only a few democrats claimed they had been lied to after the fact. The majority did not. That should tell you something.

Enough with the political messages surrounding a tragedy which has about a couple dozen children still missing.

Quick-rescues are being done by the local first responders. In situations like this moving FEMA in is too slow.

A list of the 10 deadliest tornadoes in the United States since 1900:

695 deaths. March 18, 1925, in Missouri, Illinois and Indiana.

216 deaths. April 5, 1936, in Tupelo, Miss.

203 deaths. April 6, 1936, in Gainesville, Ga.

181 deaths. April 9, 1947, in Woodward, Okla.

158 deaths. May 22, 2011, in Joplin, Mo.

143 deaths. April 24, 1908, in Amite, La., and Purvis, Miss.

116 deaths. June 8, 1953, in Flint, Mich.

114 deaths. May 11, 1953 in Waco, Texas.

114 deaths. May 18, 1902 in Goliad, Texas.

103 deaths. March 23, 1913, in Omaha, Neb.

Tornadoes have, unfortunately, always been apart of our lives for those of us who live in the mid-west. I have never had to endure a direct hit by a tornado but have had a few near misses.

Look at the above figures, it is a little difficult to claim global warming is the cause.

Show some respect for those who have lost love ones. My heart aches for the parents of those school children.

You & the whatever dude are full of shit! They're natural events until it's in your town, on your block, at your house! What you call pole shifting is when the magnetic poles swap. Pole shifting that has to do with climate change is a literal physical swap where, the shift causes the seasons to change or reverse , weather climate above our below normal , & natural disasters to occur frequently in places where they never use to occur. I live in New Jersey. We rarely have tornados, earthquakes, & though we have hurricanes more often than the others, we rarely have those either. Last year we had all 3 in 1 year or in a years time. You can't tell me they were natural occurrences or a coincidence. The seasons are changing drastically. It's normal now to have cold days during what use to be known as summer months. 35 degrees today, 79 degrees tomorrow! What type of shit is that? There's nothing normal about that!

Heard the same thing today sonic said. Next Tuesday, the cold and warm fronts clashing are predicted to create the same storm fronts and tornado warnings in the same areas.

Let's hope it doesn't happen again.

Glue it together and look at the chart I posted above. Tornadoes do occur every spring through out the mid-west. It is caused by cold air and warm air colliding.

WE are not in the Super Zone this year so we have had to duck and dodge less than those in OK. About mid-June when there is less variations in air temps there are fewer occurrences.

Man you're talking complete nonsense! It's not hard to claim anything! The fact is, we also had a storm in Jersey last year in which it was unexpected, & authorities didn't even know what kind of storm it was. It was widespread like a hurricane but, also left a path of destruction, uprooting trees, treating down telephone poles, & knocking the electric out in the city for weeks. A storm in which the authorities didn't even know what typeof storm it was, nor did they have the chance to warn the population. You call that normal huh!

I live in the mid-west. We have tornadoes here every spring. If a warm front collides with a cold front the potential for tornadoes happen. The way it sounds this system will effect a large part of the US before it is over.

Good grief, how old are you? The shifting of the jet stream effects the temperatures and also the amount of rain you get. Last year we were very hot and extremely dry -a whole one and half inches.

This year the spring is cooler although we have had 90 degree days but today it is very cool and it has rain for 3 days. You need to learn to roll with punches. Where I live we expect our weather to have wild swings.

Our saying is -Just wait a couple days the weather will change.
