FoxNews.com ^ | May 21, 2013

Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse has apologized for remarks Monday in which he linked Oklahoma "cyclones" to climate change while berating Republicans for their stance on the issue -- around the time a massive tornado killed dozens in that state.

. . .

During Whitehouse’s 15-minute speech, he criticized Republicans who dispute the concept of climate change while seeking federal assistance following disasters.

Anger Management Ping!

Where a good rant feels good and you know you're among FRiends

Anger Management isn't liberal, just like gun control isn't liberal:

Fine example of gun control

Unleash your inner political incorrectness!

Let me know if you want on or off the Anger Management Ping List.

His apology was today. His rant on global warming was while school children drowning in OK. This guy is frickin' evil.

I may come off sometimes as being insensitive and I perhaps I swear like a drunken sailor, but I was on my knees praying yesterday as I was choking back tears watching the news.

That's sweet of him to apologize.

It doesn't make him any less of a piece of human dung garbage socialist America hating waste of oxygen, but it's sweet of him to apologize.

Democrats discover storms...

Over the last five years, Democrats have awoken from what seems like a long nap. It would have to have been an awfully long nap, that would make Rumple Stiltskin’s look timid in comparison.

A famous movie from the 1930s heralded tornadoes, and what they can do. Stragely, Democrats never knew.

Now they are all a twitter about big storms. These are new to them, and now they are proof of something. Something has changed, evidently...

Well Democrats, I’m sorry, but we have had storms as long as recorded history for the plains of the American mid-west has been written.

Take an Alkaseltzer and you’ll feel better in the morning.

Sheesh! Where have these idiots been for eighty years?

From April 3 to April 4, 1974, with over 300 fatalities, there were 148 tornadoes confirmed in 13 US states, including Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and New York; and the Canadian province of Ontario. It extensively damaged approximately 900 square miles (2,330 square kilometers) along a total combined path length of 2,600 miles (4,200 km).

This was still not enough to prevent President Nixon from receiving Articles of Impeachment voted against him in the US House, and him having to resign later that year, in August. Emperor Obongo and his spinning, lying talking heads trying to change the subject, had best keep this in mind.

Do you mean Rip Van Winkle? Rumpelstiltskin stomped his foot into the ground after the miller's daughter "guessed" his name. :)

Libs don’t care about kids as we have seen with Sandy hook. Right away after Sandy hook they went right into gun control rants. If they cared about those kids they would have been screaming about why there was no protection for those kids like the millionaire insider trading politicians they worship are protected, but they didn’t. They went right into gun control rants.

The worst mass killing on school grounds was in 1927, the Bath school killings where a psycho blew up a school and killed 38 kids and 6 adults so they know daaamn well those kids in Sandy hook could have been killed in other way, a bomb or worse by fire, but they don’t care. All libs care about is furthering their fascist agenda. What did we hear after the Boston bombing when that kid was killed? “Let’s not make any rash judgements, it may be right wing extremists...It may be the Tea party.” Matter of fact it was the same day the bombing happened I heard that, I think it was Chris Matthews who said it. Right away into furthering the agenda.

The Oklahoma Senators are getting crap for voting down aid for Sandy and now want aid for Oklahoma. I am split on this. On one hand why should anyone get aid? Doesn't the insurance companies pay these folks? I think it was pretty bad to turn down Sandy and then expect money for the tornadoes. I think they both should say no to aid for Oklahoma. I can't see how they can be hypocrites about this and survive the hounding they will get.

What a jerk you are....spouting off as ignorant as any liberal. The Sandy bill was loaded with pork that had nothing to do with Sandy - it was another goodie bag and that is why they voted against it.

The Oklahoma senators have said they do want aid for the tornadoes, but only if it is offset with cuts elsewhere.

I hate educating ignorant boobs.

A fool would call disaster aid welfare. Disaster aid is given to first responders, to fix roads, etc. Yes, plenty is meant to help people, but blame Congress for the pork they add in. My my, I do hope you are in need of help one day and there is no one there.
