Maybe not 200mph but buildings here have to do 150mph. Building square or rectangular buildings is just asking for trouble. They should be rounded or better yet buried.

You weren't paying attention as usual Flacko.

There were hardened spaces and they were not blown flat.

By the way, you only assume that the children who died were at the school. Plenty of mobile homss ripped apart too.

March Against Obama bin Lying and Monsanto on 5/25..

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/05/07/1207 ...

Biotech lobbyists and Monsanto exec's litter obama's cabinet and FDA you fools.

Two of the Obama's biggest supporters, Bill Gates and George Soros, purchased 900,000 and 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock.

The Monsanto Protection Act was signed into law by Barack Obama bin Lying...

A president obama who presented himself, and was believed by many to be, an extraordinary departure from politics as usual. Not only was that a wrong assessment, Obama was lying all along, a sellout. He was, and he still is, Monsanto's man in Washington.

You deranged democrats and Obama bin Lying are poisoning the food supply and all you can do is rag on republicans... LOL...

Probably because your heartless, hypocritical Greedy Old Pricks cut funding to schools just as they did for diplomatic security...'course it'll all be Obama's fault in a vast left-wing conspiracy quicker than the same wastes of air can get an investigative committee going to hog some more airtime.(I really don't mind that as the more one sees the Gormless Odd Gohmerts of the ilk, the less inclined he/she is to vote for them.)

You must have some ballistic underwear you gasbag! Your pharts must blow way over 200 mph.
How can you stand it?

Anyway: USA citizens worth OVER $50 TRILLION DOLLARS TODAY!

Most of it in a few greedy hands: top 10% own 90%.

SO LET THE RICH PAY MORE: THEY OWN IT, THEY GET TO MAINTAIN IT!

Maintenance: jobs, healthcare, education, retirement, storm clean up, etc.

Raise taxes on rich incomes: way up there! The rich can afford it, they are richer than ever before right now!

But we know bushie lied. And killed 4,400+ Americans while spending trillions and killing civilians for no reason at all.
I'm getting really tired of this broken record.

Pay attention.

Bush, the UN and Intel all agreed Saddam had WMDs.
111 Democrats agreed with the UN, Intel and Bush.
The Democrats passed the Resolution to give Bush the authority to take down Saddam - which was the only original mission.
The enemy declared Iraq the frontlines.
The Iraq War then became about defeating the enemy.

If Bush lied, the UN lied and 111 Democrats lied.
Everyone knew Saddam had the capabilities to possess WMDs and would have them again.

Not finding them did not mean they were never there or were somewhere else.

A handful of Democrats lied to you saying Bush lied to them. Most of them did not. Only the ones who had an election to win.

It's the same pattern now. Win at all costs.

Your party lied to you then and they are lying to you now.

So please change the record.

Coburn spokesman John Hart on Monday evening confirmed that the senator will seek to ensure that any additional funding for tornado disaster relief in Oklahoma be offset by cuts to federal spending elsewhere in the budget.

I wonder where the Republicans will want to take the funding? Certainly not Obamacare.

When they fought tooth & nail to extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, they didn't fund that. Rich people OK, hurt & devastated people - not so much.

They were bullied, lied to, cajoled and if you were in an election year not a good time to go against a president with an 80% approval rating. If you weren't for the Iraq war you were deemed unpatriotic. Look how the Dixie Chicks were villified.

Bush, well Cheney and Rove and the other rightwing chickenhawks used all these factors to start the war with Iraq.

Dummies like you are still buying the bullsh!t.

Below is what you requested.
http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/obama-...
Since the president is spending money like it grows on trees, I suggest he hire a butler to hold his umbrella.
The Marine's sole function is to protect the president. Obviously, to any person connected to the real world, this sole function was severely impeded.
Perhaps Obama thinks he doesn't need Marines to protect him. I've got a simple solution. Don't deploy Marines to the White House.
This is nothing more than more evidence that Obama is an elitist with a medieval mentality that categorizes everyone outside of his ruling elite circle as peasants... bound to the land.
