Let's see what happens.
It ought to be interesting.
WASHINGTON -- When $50 billion in disaster aid for victims of Superstorm Sandy came before Congress this year, three of Oklahoma’s five representatives and both of its senators were among the "no" votes.
At the time, some of the Oklahoma lawmakers demanded spending cuts as a condition of aid to the hurricane-ravaged Northeast.
Now that a devastating tornado has hit their state, it's not clear whether Oklahoma lawmakers who demanded budget cuts will continue to hold that line when it comes to their state's recovery efforts.
"When we increase spending in one area, we must cut spending in another area," Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.) said in January. "I hope my colleagues will consider this principle in future relief packages."
Oklahoma Reps. Markwayne Mullin and James Lankford, both Republicans, also voted against the $50-billion aid package.
Oklahoma’s Republican Sens. Tom Coburn, who is a physician, and James Inhofe also opposed the measure when it passed the Senate, 62 to 36.
"If an additional emergency aid package is necessary, Dr. Coburn will not change his long-standing position on offsets," said spokesman John Hart, whose boss was headed to Oklahoma to assess the damage.
"We don’t know if an emergency aid package will even be necessary," Hart said, noting that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has $11 billion in its disaster relief fund..
During the debate on Sandy aid, a number of Republican lawmakers challenged whether spending for such things as shoring up defenses against future storms was an emergency, saying that should be considered during the normal budget process.
You know. A few pages back when you posted about votes, you had to be corrected by one of your own kind. Just wanted to remind you of that. Where did you find this article?

Explain this.........
" Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe (R) said on Tuesday that federal aid to tornado-ravaged parts of his home state will be "totally different" than a Hurricane Sandy aid bill he voted against late last year.
Speaking on MSNBC, the lawmaker said that in the case of Hurricane Sandy, "everybody was getting in and exploiting the tragedy that took place." However, he said, "that won't happen in Oklahoma."
President Barack Obama on Tuesday said he has already signed a federal disaster declaration for parts of Oklahoma, where tornadoes have caused dozens of fatalities and flattened entire communities.
Inhofe said the Sandy Relief bill "was supposed to be in New Jersey," but "they were getting things … in the Virgin Islands, fixing roads there, and putting roofs on houses in Washington, D.C." Both Inhofe and Coburn voted to slash aid to victims of Hurricane Sandy, with Inhofe saying he considered the full proposed aid amount to be a "slush fund."
Watch. He'll have some goofy reason that this is wrong. Thanks for posting this. I've given up. They aren't even worth the effort.

Sometimes they never do learn the truth.
But to Right Wing Wacko deadbeat scabs - ignorance is literally bliss.
See. You call them scabs. Classy.
As I posted a few minutes ago, not every person can get in a union. What do you think those that can't get in should do to make a living? Should they just let their families starve? Live in a homeless shelter?
THAT is why you union types are considered so dispicable. You hate and call names those who would probably like to get into a union but can't. Bunch of bullies.

That's 11 Billion we wouldn't have if the Right Wing Wackos had their way.
And now RWWs want to take credit for us normal folks who were able to defeat your efforts to defund FEMA.
That's rich.
By the way - 11 Billion isn't going to come close to the cost of this disaster, but if it does, we have to replenish the funds for the next one - it'll come along.
Seriously, you need a brain transplant. In another post, you were criticizing the money that people are donating.$286,000 right now. How much a few days from now? Next week? Next month? See, you are just being a jerk, IO.

We All have been mislead by republicans for far to long. I used to think when I was a niave child that rich people didnt like poor people because they didnt know us. I have learned with time thats not the case. Like Bill said ya'll dont care about poor people one way or the other. To ya'll we are not even people and you dont care one way or the other if we live or die. Now I could care less if you live or die.
You are being mislead by democrats, too. It's very obvious, don't you think? Obama SAID he would help you, but he hasn't. Don't listen to what he says. Look at what he has or hasn't done. You are a victim of negative propaganda in order to get your vote.
To say that rich people don't care about poor people is painting with a very large brush. When you really think about that, does that even make sense to you? Hopefully not. You know, there are some very wealthy democrats, too. When have you received a check in the mail from any of them? THAT is what I mean about painting with a large brush.
I didn't interpret what Bill posted the same way you did. I know him and he wouldn't say he doesn't care about poor people. He made his comment in regard to comments that have been made to and about him. He is very generous. I've posted that before. If you had worked for him, I guarantee you that he would have treated you with respect. Please reread your last two sentences. I truly hope you don't believe that.

@ Conservatives.
After posting in this thread for months, it’s obvious the gap between Conservatives and Liberals is so huge it will never be bridged. We here on topix are just a micronism of what we see on the national level and in our elected officials.

I have also found by being involved on topix, I have become more or less obsessive/compulsive in posting so I have decided to take a hiatus from topix for the moral good of my soul. When one becomes so absorbed in politics where it affects one’s moral compass, the effort is not worth it. My life does NOT revolve around politics; I just get sucked into it occasionally.

I have great faith in conservative principles as they have stood the test of time, not so the liberal principles.

I’m giving a top ten list of conservative principles along with a top ten list of liberal principles.

And finally I’m giving a top ten list of philosophical principles.
Maybe some of you can discern some similarity in these principles, maybe not.

Conservative principles::
Web link:
http://www.kirkcenter.org/index.php/detail/te...

First, the conservative believes that there exists an enduring moral order.
Second, the conservative adheres to custom, convention, and continuity.
Third, conservatives believe in what may be called the principle of prescription.
Fourth, conservatives are guided by their principle of prudence.
Fifth, conservatives pay attention to the principle of variety.
Sixth, conservatives are chastened by their principle of imperfectability.
Seventh, conservatives are persuaded that freedom and property are closely linked.
Eighth, conservatives uphold voluntary community, quite as they oppose involuntary collectivism.
Ninth, the conservative perceives the need for prudent restraints upon power and upon human passions.
Tenth, the thinking conservative understands that permanence and change must be recognized and reconciled in a vigorous society.

Liberal principles, note some of these principles have changed to day due to socialist influence::
Web link;;
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/geoffrey-r-ston...

1. Liberals believe individuals should doubt their own truths and consider fairly and open-mindedly the truths of others.
2. Liberals believe individuals should be tolerant and respectful of difference.
3. Liberals believe individuals have both a right and a responsibility to participate in public debate.
4. Liberals believe "we the people" are the governors and not the subjects of government, and that government must treat each person with that in mind.
5. Liberals believe government must respect and affirmatively safeguard the liberty, equality and dignity of each individual.
6. Liberals believe government has a fundamental responsibility to help those who are less fortunate.
7. Liberals believe government should never act on the basis of sectarian faith.
8. Liberals believe courts have a special responsibility to protect individual liberties.
9. Liberals believe government must protect the safety and security of the people, for without such protection liberalism is impossible.
10. Liberals believe government must protect the safety and security of the people, without unnecessarily sacrificing constitutional values.

Philosophical principles::
Web link;;
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/moslive/artic...

1. THE HARM PRINCIPLE
2. THE PRINCIPLE OF SUFFICIENT REASON
3. THE MEAN
4. THE FALSIFICATION PRINCIPLE
5. OUGHT IMPLIES CAN
6. THE PRINCIPLE OF EVIDENCE
7. THE PRINCIPLE OF CHARITY
8. THE DIFFERENCE PRINCIPLE
9. JUST WAR
10. OCCAM'S RAZOR

To the conservatives on topix, stand fast and live by your principles.
To the liberals, good riddance.

Your comparison is a poor one. Drunk driving has always been illegal, the problem was (as you alluded to) more of a societal wink-wink, nudge-nudge when it came to actually punishing those who got caught. Juries tended to take the "there but for the grace of God go I" and let the drivers off. We can thank organizations like MADD for helping make people aware that those who broke the law needed to be treated as though they broke the law and these changing attitudes also led to the lower thresholds and stronger laws you mentioned.
So let's see, drunk driving was always a crime but was not considered a societial problem until an activist group put focus on it. But this is a poor comparison to mass murder because murder is already a crime and anything we try to do to make it more difficult for the next shooter to go on a spree infringes on freedom.

Course the problem is not mass murder, as you've shown it is an infrequent occurence, but gun violence is an all to common occurence, but our hands are tied because of freedom. Back ground checks for "private" sales, nope takes away freedom. Lower capacity magazines, nope gotta be able to stop armored vehicles and flying launch platforms because tyranny.

I am a middle class worker. I have worked ever since I was old enough to find work. I am neither rich nor poor,but live comfortably on my retirement check because I am EXTREMELY frugal, as well as hard-working. I am not yet old enough for Social Security.

The people that I "hate," are the liars, cheaters, and thieves who are bilking our government for benefits and tax breaks that they are not really qualified to receive.

People on the left and right, rich and poor.

The honest people need to unite to take our country back from the liars and thieves of both parties!

Too bad the Oklahoma tornado didn't shoot right up Pennsylvania Avenue and just "get" the dishonest of both parties.

Forget about the left and the right!

Support those on the straight and narrow, if you can find an honest politician! It's an oxymoron!

Bush administration U.S. attorney firings controversy
http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php...

n late 2006, the Bush Justice Department fired (or asked for the resignation of) eight U.S. attorneys all previously appointed by President George W. Bush. Earlier in 2006, a provision included in the reauthorization of the Patriot Act allowed these positions to be filled by the administration without U.S. Senate approval. In early 2007, hearings were held on the matter in both the House and Senate Judiciary committees on the firings. Several of the fired attorneys testified that they had been contacted by members of Congress or executive officials about pending cases shortly before their termination. Such contact by members of Congress is a violation of both House and Senate rules.

Note: H.E. "Bud" Cummins was asked to resign as early as June 2006 and other AUSAs were marked for replacement. See Tim Griffin article.

The firings of the U.S. attorneys was emblematic of a broader scandal involving the Bush administration's politicization of the Department of Justice.

...On April 19, 2007, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales testified before the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. According to the Washington Post's Dana Milbank, "Gonzales uttered the phrase 'I don't recall' and its variants ('I have no recollection,''I have no memory') 64 times. Along the way, his answer became so routine that a Marine in the crowd put down his poster protesting the Iraq war and replaced it with a running 'I don't recall' tally.

"Take Gonzales's tally along with that of his former chief of staff, who uttered the phrase 'I don't remember' 122 times before the same committee three weeks ago, and the Justice Department might want to consider handing out Ginkgo biloba in the employee cafeteria."

...Monica Goodling stated in an affidavit to the Senate Judiciary Committee dated March 26, 2007, that she would "decline to answer any and all questions" regarding the issue. Goodling's reasoning was that she did not want to put herself in a legally precarious position due to the fact that the Committee had already drawn conclusions about the issue. Goodling's willingness to invoke her Fifth Amendment rights, protecting her from self-incrimination, further raised suspicion as to how high up the involvement went.
