    Bad timing as far as the RNC.....maybe they will shorten all the hoopla an have an excuse for Bush and Chaney not to represent. Boy, wouldn't that be a relief to my republican friends:peaceful:

    Memories of Katrina are still fresh, hopefully all will take precautions and get out of Dodge. Many of the Nat'l guardsman deployed in Louisiana, just got home from the middle east and now they have to deal with this. Good luck to everybody's safety and property and hopefully the oil rigs only sustain minimal damage.

    They already announced this morning that Bush & Cheney won't be attending the convention ( at least not when they were scheduled).

    The hurricane is moving in a little quicker than they first thought and looking at early Mon. morning for making landfall.

    It appears that much more is being done in advance of this storm instead of just afterwards.

    My first thought as well. With Palin on the ticket, Bush/Cheney are nothing but dead weight.
    McCain has probably voted against Bush more than any other Republican in Congress and there's So. Carolina in 2000 ... McCain doesn't like or need Bush.
    McCain has been on target in what has worked in the Iraq war...he does not need Bush there to bring back memories of what did not work.

    It sure looks like people are actually moving this time, instead of waiting to be rescued.
    I like the "on your own approach"
    Prayers for all who have to live through this, and hope they dont lose what they have.

    Harvey surpassed Katrina as the most dangerous, most expensive....just not the deadliest.

    Not 'everything' but there seems to be a common theme to a lot of posts.

    Would it still be racist if his name was Bill? Serious question.

    How many rescue boats have the Antifa sent to Texas ?
    Along with the BLM groups ?
    When is the SPLC going to send their feeders full of food ?
    What has done ?
    Where's La Raza ?
    Or The Clinton Foundation ?
    They have more money than God, but if you go to their website, all it has is a list of links to other organizations .

    Someone else wrote this:

    Let this sink in for a minute.....Hundreds and hundreds of small boats pulled by countless pickups and SUVs from across the South are headed for Houston. Almost all of them driven by men. They're using their own property, sacrificing their own time, spending their own money, and risking their own lives for one reason: to help total strangers in desperate need.

    Most of them are by themselves. Most are dressed like the redneck duck hunters and bass fisherman they are. Many are veterans. Most are wearing well-used gimme-hats, t-shirts, and jeans; and there's a preponderance of camo. Most are probably gun owners, and most probably voted for Trump.

    These are the people the Left loves to hate, the ones Maddow mocks. The ones Maher and Olbermann just *know* they're so much better than.

    These are The Quiet Ones. They don't wear masks and tear down statues. They don't, as a rule, march and demonstrate. And most have probably never been in a Whole Foods.

    But they'll spend the next several days wading in cold, dirty water; dodging gators and water moccasins and fire ants; eating whatever meager rations are available; and sleeping wherever they can in dirty, damp clothes. Their reward is the tears and the hugs and the smiles from the terrified people they help. They'll deliver one boatload, and then go back for more.

    When disaster strikes, it's what men do. Real men. Heroic men. American men. And then they'll knock back a few shots, or a few beers with like-minded men they've never met before, and talk about fish, or ten-point bucks, or the benefits of hollow-point ammo, or their F-150.

    And the next time they hear someone talk about "the patriarchy", or "male privilege", they'll snort, turn off the TV and go to bed.

    In the meantime, they'll likely be up again before dawn. To do it again. Until the helpless are rescued. And the work's done.

    They're unlikely to be reimbursed. There won't be medals. They won't care. They're heroes. And it's what they do.

    Are these the same "quiet ones " that march at night with torches chanting Nazi propaganda and hate?

    I don't know guy, doesn't an 'article' like this just add to the division?

    False dichotomy, as if the 'redneck duck hunters' are the 'quiet ones', and everyone on the 'left' turns their noses down on these people.


    I think one of the lessons of Harvey is that Americans, regardless of party, race, or religion, will help out other Americans in need.

    If you have a chip on your shoulder about the 'left', please don't disguise it with a propo-piece about how camo-clad-boat-owning-duck-hunting-veterans are the only Americans who will show up in times of need.


    This is something Moreluck would post - I appreciate the sentiment, but you mos-def need to link to the article you're referencing.

    Unless you wrote it?
