Southlake isn't inside the 635 loop. Map reading just
ain't your forte. Never has been a disaster here in
Rich City. We're more concerned about avalanches.
But cartel hitmen patrol the town square in Southlake. Dead is dead dope.

I find it interesting that you never answered my question. You said that my sister has only herself to blame for losing everything she had. If a disaster happened to you in your town, would you blame yourself?

<quoted text> Disasters happen everywhere and in this great country we gather together to help one another but I feel for the people that lost love ones and homes but I was wondering people are asked to give and do so
without hesitation but i would like to know did the local hospital's and doctors give any thing to the cause. I bet those who where hospitalized also got a big bill when they left the hospital I would like to see some local reporter check this out?
I know of a couple of doctors myself who treated patients without insurance for free and waived any out of pocket costs for those with insurance but I'm not sure if any hospitals did.

Some don't have the luxury of being able to afford insurance.
As far as avalanches, while some are caused by man, others are caused by too much rain. Is rain not natural thereby making some avalanches 'Natural Disasters'?

You can't see sarcasm when it's in your face.
Southlake has no mountains and no avalanches.
We don't have natural disaster worries.

If you live where hurricanes, tornados, floods, blizzards,
and etc occur, then disaster is your fault.

Are you allowed to drive ?

you are being disrespectful. we have bad tornado seasons occasionally and you act like we've taken up residence in Chernobyl. people have lost thier homes and lives, your first thought is to come to this forum and tell us all you wouldn't want to live here?!
here's some perspective for you. you sound like an ass but I'm simply indicating you sound like an ass so that makes it ok right?
You have a point. I should have been more mindful of the people who have lost lives and property before making my comments about not wanting to live in Oklahoma.

I had been talking to a friend earlier that day about places I would not want to live that seem to be prone to natural disasters, and that carry over to my making that comment on this thread.

As I mentioned before it was not my intention to be disrespectful to Oklahoma or the people who live there, but I do apologize for making comments that in hindsight may have been insensitive to those who lost lives, loved ones, and/or property.

you are at risk for tornados, hurricanes, floods, blizzards, wild fires, drought and earthquakes where you live. just because one hasn't happened doesn't mean it isn't possible or won't happen in the future. try not to be so dense.

thank you for that.

while yours wasn't one of the more hateful ones I am tired of people telling us to move. do you understand how many millions of people live in tornado alley? people who are telling us it's our fault we shouldn't live here seem to not understand that tornado alley spans across several different states and it would be ridiculous to relocate dip many people because there's a risk a couple months out of the year.

the censure I've seen from some people is astounding. did these same people show such anger towards the joplin tornado victims or the hurricane sandy or Katrina victims? there is nowhere on this planet that is immune to mother nature's wrath. these people that like to think they live on a safe bubble are deluding themselves yet they would criticize me and mine for residing in a state I've lived nearly all my life.

the reason we don't leave isn't because we're unable to leave or stupid. it's because we know what the risks are, we take our precautions and we live our livesas so many have before us. because of us, weather patterns are better understood, because of us we know how to protect ourselves. when I was a child weather chasing didn't really exist. you heard days later if a tornado touched down somewhere and tornado warnings were a dime a dozen. nowadays we can see a tornado on the radar because storm chasers are out there to confirm them.

I'm just really disappointed in the people outside that don't know. they suddenly think they're experts on the weather in tornado alley because they watched the weather channel so they decide to take to fb or blogs and criticize people for living in what they consider to be such a dangerous area. way more people are killed in car accidents per year than tornados but you don't see people being criticized for driving. or how about we start criticizing people who live in high crime areas? instead of sending more police to those areas let's just leave them to die or be robbed or raped because they should have known bettet right? it's inhumane the way some people have reacted to our disaster.

Try not to worry about the sky falling, Chicken Little.
No natural disasters have ever happened in Southlake/Grapevine.

We do lose a lot of sleep over giant meteors.

It's reassuring to know that the local weather experts
in Okieland who know the risks and chose to live there
happily anyway are being killed off so rapidly.
That's Okie wisdom at its finest.

do you ever tire of being ridiculous?

the amount of okies killed in the tornado can hardly leave anyone to believe our population is being killed off 'rapidly'. even if it were 100 deaths it would hardly be a drop from the pot considering we have several million. but again that's just you trying your best to hurt my feelings and you won't.

I understand miserable, angry people like you. you hate yourself for whatever reason and want other people top be unhappy like yourself. that doesn't work on me so keep trying if you must but you only make yourself look ridiculously stupid in the process.

You're right, 100 Okie deaths is nothing. Nothing.

I'm retired and rich. Hardly miserable.
Tell me how being a poor ignorant Okie is better.

You were going to tell me how being an Okie
and living in Mustang is better than rich.

Please elaborate, I seem to have missed
everything worthwhile. It must be all
Okies needing other Okies. Do you dress

They have compassion. When something happens, they HELP. They care about people. That's how 'poor ignorant Okies' are better.
Btw, not all Okies are poor. Kevin Durant lives up the road from me. His neighbor is a neurosurgeon and the whole area is full of mansions.
If you go by stereotypes, all Texans must be cowboys. Isn't it time you go clean up your horse $h!t? Just sayin'.... ;)

Tell me how superior you feel today, THE U.S. SUPREME COURT has ruled in OKLAHOMA'S favor AGAINST TEXAS in the water for Tarrant County, since Ft. Worth needs Oklahoma's natural resources.

The Obama Administration sided with TEXAS in the case but all the Supreme's sided unanimously with OKLAHOMA and said the Texas case lacked merit!
