God be with the people, first responders and support people of Texas. Amazing how Republican Senators Cruz & Cornyn request federal funding for Harvey relief when they both voted NO for NY State Sandy relief in 2012. Americans really need to unite in times of catastrophe. Unfortunately, more will happen. Feds have to figure out response $$$ NOW. Just saw Rep. Farenhold (another Sandy NO) saying they need relief $.
Deepest sympathy for the people and animals of Texas. I heard a conservative Republican pundit-- whose name escapes me, as do most names--sorrowfully admit that the Republican Party has become the party of racism, hatred, and division. I know there are many sincere conservatives, but the party has been taken over by hatred. Ted Cruz is iconic of the party at this time tragically, just when we most need to unite as Americans to take care of each other. Global climate change causes drought alternating with more severe flooding following more violent storms. Fascist Nazis and other white supremacists are hiding behind religion to act out their terrorist agenda with the tacit approval stated and repeated by the man called president Who wants to be our dictator for life and will succeed in his appalling ambitions if we don't stay active and don't get him out Now!
Go figure how the worm turns when it's Cruz's & Cornyn's home state, but that's a Republicans for you. Non for you but all for me.
Sense this is being reported by mainstream media is this fake new? When Louisiana and others had flooding Cruz and other republicans voted agains federal funding support, but now it his state and he wants help. He is voting for it? Go figure.
I'm worried for the people not checked on regularly... and if people can be ignored what of the zoos and animal shelters?
The current disaster in Texas is heart wrenching. They need aid desperately. I notice that 2 senators who voted against aiding Sandy victims are now asking for aid for their state. We remember, Senators Cruz and Comyn , and yes, your hypocrisy is showing.
Do not let trump come to Texas tomorrow. We need our first responders on ground saving citizens who are losing their homes and drowning. Stay in your golden trump tower or Mara logo. We got it here in Texas. Know you would rather take federal money to build your so called wall than save lives in Texas. Oh by the way, how is it going for Mexico to pay for wall? Mexico, our allies offered their help in Texas. Mexico did same help with Katrina. Trump, Quit dividing our country. Please do not come to Texas. We need boots on ground to save lives and don't need your rally campaigns or politics.
Someone with some intestinal fortitude tell the babbling idiot to just shut up and let the adults handle the emergency
Another Inconvenient Truth!
The violence at these anti Hate rallies is feeding right into trump and white supremacists. This is exactly what they want. If you want to prove you hate the violence , STOP the violence!!! DON'T give into them and bring yourself down to their level!!!
Make him stop talking about the wall. Now is not the time to talk about building the wall between the United States and Mexico. Our efforts need to be directed towards monies that will benefit people and not an insane and asinine wall. I am tired of him di I ding our country. We don't want the wall. We don't have time for this nonsense. Tell him so now! The need for federal monies will be stressed beyond measure and our residents will need all the help they can get. We don't have money or time to worry about this unnecessary wall. Let's prioritize and truly put Americans first. I will be offended if you don't speak up and stand up for people who are needing true leadership.
It's easy to watch on tv, hard to imagine what people are going through! God bless all the people inolved from those in need and those who are pouring there blood sweat and tears into helping,these are the people the word hero is reserved for! Those who make politics of this are FOOLS, ignore them and focus on those who care about peopl!
Heartfelt sympathy and praying for the citizens of southeast Texas. Hopefully all will be rescued in time. Sad that it took a disaster of this magnitude to NOT have to see/hear Trump all over the TV! The media is doing a very good job reporting this and doing what they can to help rescue people and pets. I hope I don't hear 45 calling this fake news!
I want to know what the 50 Texas billionaires who have received government kickback for more than 10 years, with the claim of fueling the economy, are doing to send some of that fuel down to their fellow Texans. I am serious! Either the wealthy elites show evidence of providing substantial help in their state or it goes on record that padding the wallets of all those Texas billionaires and multimillionaires DOES ABSOLUTELY NO FLIPPING GOOD! 😡And if one single federal tax dollar goes to help out the those same wealthy elite ... ... then I might just start offering a boat to rides in exchange for a promise to vote against any and all baby boomers. ⚠️
I'm sure Climate Change fanatics will blame it on Man Made Global Warming!Climate Change is a Hoax and the below Bible scripture proves it. It all started with Global Warming but since it wasn't really getting any warmer they changed it to Climate Change. The climate is always changing. The Democrats started this hoax because it's a money maker for the Democrat party, more government control and to tax Fossil Fuels. If they can't predict the weather within a weeks time how can they predict it 30-50 years from now? It's a Hoax! While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” Genesis 8:22 KJV
I pray for Texas as of right now. Thank god for all the kind hearted people who are helping and who have helped and donated. God bless the firefighters, police, citizens, etc. If I could I would drive over there right now and help as much as I could.
Now that we are facing even more tragedy with Irma, hate MUST take a backseat! #45's agenda is now to feed his base. His self-serving ego wants total adoration and will stop at nothing to obtain it. If it encourages racism and division, 'oh well! At least my base loves me'! #45 made a point in his speeches to point out how many came out to see him when he was in TX...seriously? 😳
