Kentucky Republican Delegation Sends Thoughts And Prayers to Kentucky

(Stolen from Scissorhead @Glitterbug on the electic tweeter)

We are NOT making fun of death, destruction and tragedy, and this is a real tragedy. It looks like the death toll from the tornadoes is going to hit 100 people, and god only knows how many survived but will be displaced by the storm for an undetermined amount of time. The pictures on the news sites are terrible and grim.

If only someone with some clout, like the Minority Leader of the Senate could do something… but there is no mention of the Climate Change legislation that is being held hostage in the Senate by the usual suspects: Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul.

If they were sincere, maybe that blockade would crumble. But bet me it won’t.

Anyway, onto the thoughts and prayers:

and

Let’s pause at Rand Paul to remember that he has objected to and delayed federal response to pretty much all natural disasters because he doesn’t think that it is the gubmint’s responsibility to relieve Americans in a disaster… except in Kentucky, it seems. The way-back twitter machine never disappoints.

Weird innit how that principled Libertarianism vanishes when it comes to himself.

    Not a fan of the tots and pears approach. It takes a concerted effort to deal with natural disasters, and it would be a good thing if the voices in Congress crying for help the loudest. Would offer to extend help to other states when similar disasters happen. Kentucky already takes more federal resources from the Treasury than it gives. They receive $2.61 for every dollar they pay to the Treasury…

    I live about 40 miles north of Mayfield. One of my sisters lives in Mayfield along with 3 of her daughters and 5 of her grandchildren. They are all safe but without power. The county courthouse, police dept. and fire dept. were all destroyed. Every motel & hotel in Paducah, 30 minutes away, is full. The highest death toll will most likely come from a candle-making factory where 100 to 110 people were in the building when the tornado hit. At last count only 40 have been accounted for. The tornado was on the ground for 223 miles breaking a 1925 record of 219 miles. Meanwhile, every town in a 100-mile radius is loading vans, buses, trucks & tractor trailers with supplies headed for Mayfield.

    glad mitch has a surplus of t&p for the victims, thinking his wife has the same, now let’s see if they can put some of their money behind it. it’s not like they don’t have a little set aside. talk is cheap and those t&p don’t put roofs over heads or food on the table.
