:lol: Incredible.

Both sides are as bad as each other! Sure, the "literally being a Nazi" movement has a few extremists, but what about the "not a Nazi" extremists I just made up? I assume they must exist. "Not a Nazi" is a very extremist position after all.

Leftists like you are such snowflakes, a man stabs himself and it offends your PC sensibilities so much that you ignore that it was lefty cucks that basically forced this poor man to insert the knife into his own body to raise awareness of just how terrorist like the leftist Antifa are. :x

CBS News wrote:Texas Gov. Greg Abbott praised the federal response to Harvey on Monday, saying he'd spoken "on multiple occasions" to President Trump and members of his Cabinet.

Several big political fights, however, are looming over the cost of recovery and rebuilding.

Federal resources have already begun flooding into Texas: 2 million liters of water, 2 million meals and tens of thousands of tarps -- all at the direction of FEMA Director Brock Long.

Early estimates for recovery and rebuilding are at $40 billion -- and climbing. But FEMA's coffers have dwindled to $3.8 billion.

Earlier this year, the Trump administration also proposed slashing FEMA's budget by another 11 percent.

Earlier this year, the Trump administration also proposed slashing FEMA's budget by another 11 percent.

"You're gonna get your funding. It's a terrible tragedy," Mr. Trump said Monday during a joint news conference at the White House with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto.

Mr. Trump made no mention of the proposed budget cuts.

"We're dealing with Congress, as you know it's going to be a very expansive situation. We want to take care of the people of Texas and Louisiana," Mr. Trump said.

But Congress is already facing several other urgent deadlines when it returns next week. The nation's borrowing limit must be raised, and the government funded by the end of September.

Now, some northern Republicans are calling out Texas Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, who are pushing for more aid even though they opposed a $50 billion relief bill after Hurricane Sandy.

"The congressional members in Texas are hypocrites," New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said. "And I said back in 2012 that they'd be proven to be hypocrites."

Cruz defended that vote, from Houston.

"I didn't think it was appropriate to engage in pork barrel spending where two-thirds of that bill was unrelated spending that had nothing to do with Sandy and was simply politicians wasting money," he said.

Flood victims' claims is yet another financial flashpoint. The National Flood Insurance Program is currently running a $25 billion deficit and set to expire altogether in a month if Congress doesn't act.

Heck of a funding hole that is...

All you have to do is look at the total lack of gooseberry fools given to whole towns after Katrina to have some understanding about just how mercenary the US is in a crisis.
A lot of Republicans think that if the poor get flattened it's a shame but not something the federal government should help fix it really is that simple.

It also doesn't help that the US is so large so those same people will just claim that the displaced people (no matter how many or how long they've lived in an area) should just pack up and move and Man-up because it's just so easy to do.

Some scary scenes coming out of Texas - one of the dam's can no longer cope.

BBC News wrote:A major dam outside Houston has begun spilling over as Storm Harvey pushes the reservoir past capacity, a Texas official says.

Engineers have tried to prevent nearby communities from being inundated by releasing some of the water held by the Addicks dam.

But flood control official Jeff Lindner says water levels are now over the height of the reservoir edge.

More rain on the way too.

It's ok guys, don't panic. I've been speaking with my generals, who are also weather experts, great guys all of them, just tremendous. My generals have confirmed that none of my exquisite, beautiful Trump golf resorts are going to be affected by the hurricane, so that's just great news really, so important. People are telling me that crooked Hillary might have started this hurricane but I'm not giving that much thought, but people are saying it so we'll see. There's rain on many sides, many sides.

I have a feeling the first thing he made sure of was that any property he owns in the disaster area is guarded against looters.

Just had a look, and the cap really is on the Trump shop for $40! (minus shipping and tax): https://shop.donaldjtrump.com/products/ ... al-cap-red

And wouldn't you just know it, it just so happens to be part of the most expensive range he sells.

The gooseberry fool on that website. What with Breitbart, InfoWars and Trump, it sure is expensive supporting THE CAUSE.

It's almost like they don't really believe any of it and see it just as a way to make money and gain power....

Fox News carriage in the UK has ceased, effective immediately, due to EPIC lack of interest. Feed was turned off this afternoon.

Is it time to start making Trump Tweet Greeting Cards (Tweeting Cards?)?

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.
