Making hay out of people's misfortunes

The news has been so Fast and Furious this past week-- pun intended -- that here is a news item we didn't get to discuss right after it happened.

Last week we had the tornado outbreak that struck between Dallas-Fort Worth and East Texas.

Luckily, no one was killed, but there was a lot of destruction mainly in the DFW area.

Being a former TV meteorologist, I was aware of the atmospheric conditions which was causing the storms.

Then, later find out from a United States senator, not only did I know what caused the storm. but I was one of the reasons for the storms to form.

The reason--- I drive an SUV. I also drive a pickup truck.

Gasp!

I'm sorry and I am taking off time from work to go the the city of Forney, east of Dallas, and apologize for my selfishness.

You see, hours after the weather event that caused so much trouble, Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois told the press corps in D.C. the reason why they had the bad weather was not enough people are driving small cars.

I'm not kidding.

This from "Real Clear Politics.":

Sen. Dick Durbin has called for more laws regulating carbon output while he sends a dire warning that we must convert to hybrid cars or lose our life. Durbin says we must spend money now to fix the problem.

"It's your money or your life," he said a press conference. "We are either going to dedicate ourselves to a cleaner, more livable planet and accept the initial investment necessary or we're going to pay a heavier price in terms of loss of human life, damage and costs associated with it."

Last I looked, we had tornadoes and severe weather long before we ever had cars.

So sad to see a U.S. senator make political hay out of people hurt.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

I will drive my 69 Ford F-100 that has no smog control and only gets about 9mpg in the honor of Dick Duban and all the lame tree huggers out there.

Rattatooey Cont: We see homosexuality being promoted as with lesbianism. We see children allowed to be adopted by these sexual perverts. I few years ago I heard of something called, "A Booty Call." This is when you call someone you are not in a relationship with, and invite them over just for sex.
People are fighting the courts, and winning, for the right to marry a same sex partner
If you are familiar with the bible, look what happened to the Tribe of Benjamin adopted homosexuality.
Look it up.

Rollinson - Please shut up until you have something profound or important to say. NB: It is Romney not Roney.
My thoughts on this matter are this: God does not cause these events as some claim. "BUT", with the absolute decline in our moral standards, God is lifting His hand of protection from us. Look at the Internet, Public TV, and the outrageous behavior of the general public. 1 in 4 of our teen girls have, or have had, at least one STD.
Family structure has all but been destroyed. etc, etc.

Last I heard on ketk, from Durbin, it was the hrdrocarbon smog from Neals pickup escaping through the hole in the ozone layer that caused the sun spots.

Durbin and the demoCRAPS have an agenda that if fully implemented will reduce the U.S. to a larger version of Mugabe's Zimbabwe. The elites in the demoCRAP party think they will be in on the power trip that results; they forget that tyrannies do not work that way and they will experience real SOCIAL DARWINISM to their and our destruction! DemoCRAPS are working for national suicide!

And while Neal complains about the government in Washngton, this station, KETK, continues a media black-out on our presidential candidate from Texas, Ron Paul, the conservative GOP candidate. Today in a Ft. Worth townhall thousands came to gear him speak, by far the biggest turn-out of any candidate. Both Roney and Obama have supported a carbon tax based on the hoax of global warming, and these are the candidates supported by KETK. Hypocrits in media.

They're trying to tell us global warming is causing earthquakes too. What's next, telling us we're to blame for increased sun spot activity?
Sad thing is, people would beleive "em.
