Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

good to hear.
let's hope we get through the next 24 hours without the same. doesn't look good.
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.

It is a very slow moving storm with a lot of power still left.

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.

Tornadoes are extremely fickle, frequently present in some areas of the country, but exactly where they will touch down and wreak havoc is extremely unpredictable. If you happen to sustain a direct hit, you either have a shelter or you are screwed.

I cannot think of the name for this and Bing is failing me. They are like a side ways tornado which roll across the ground creating a lot of damage. They can carry debris for over a mile. We have had a number of conflicts with the Weather Service screaming it had to be a tornado when it was one of these.

Of course these natural events but look at the time gap on all the previous disasters. Then you only add strength to the abnormal frequency argument. Even Big Al Gore predicted all the super storms before they happened and you guys have spent a lot of time trying to discredit him. As usual you ringers run to the pole shift theory which we can do nothing about, but the warming principle we can sure do a lot about. But i guess this is typical of a ringers problem solving ability ignore and it all goes away.

Only a few democrats claimed they had been lied to after the fact. The majority did not. That should tell you something.
They were lied to. Sen Bob Graham, the chairman of of the Senate Intelligence Committee told everyone it would be a waste of lives and money but no one listened

A large portion of the damage from Sandy occurred because of sub-standard construction on sand bars too close to the ocean, coupled with a decaying infrastructure in New York City.

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.

Those were the top 10 deadliest tornadoes they weren't ALL the tornadoes that have occurred. I posted it so you could see devastating tornadoes have occurred since the turn of the last century which is where the statics end.

No, not all tornadoes have high death tolls. It depends on where they occur at. Common sense would tell you if they hit a highly populated area then the numbers would be expected to be high.

Really your comment is not well thought out.

Obama Daughters are Michelle's 'Senior Staffers'
Michelle was caught cheating on her expense report. What a show of arrogance!
This information was obtained by Judicial Watch March, 2012. The administration had to be sued to get this through the FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT.
Michelle Obama listed daughters as 'Senior Staffers' to justify her expensive African vacation and safari.
October 5, 2011, Judicial Watch said the U.S. Air Force provided a C-32 ( a Boeing 757 ), modified by the military for the purpose of flying big-wigs around the world, to fly the First Lady and her entourage to and from Africa , at a cost of $424,142. Another $928.44 was listed as 'bulk food' costs per meal for the192 on board meals for the 21 people who made the trip. Lobster ain't cheap when you fly it around the world.
The Obama daughters were listed on the manifest as senior staff.'This trip was as much an opportunity for the Obama family to go on a safari as it was a trip to conduct government business,' said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.'This junket wasted tax dollars and the resources of our over extended military. No wonder we had to sue to pry loose this information.' The nation is suffering with the economy sputtering, the national debt soaring and Obama's economic rescue policies not only failing, but actively making things worse.
Meanwhile, the First Lady justifies an expensive trip to Africa to take a vacation and safari with her daughters by saying it's 'official business' and even going so far as to list her children as staffers. The level of arrogance and dishonesty on display here is nothing short of shocking.
But,'hope for change'- when?
It's a true. Check out these links and read it for yourself:
