      Tom Perez, not part of any administration now, just an average citizen with a voice, getting the word out … THIS is who we are.

    Hi, hope everyone who needs it gets the help they need in Houston, real busy at work to check much but the little I’ve heard does not sound good. Stay safe and help where ever you can those of you not affected.

    Is the loose canon Putin Boy going to get away with militarizing police now? I want to see Donald Trump up in the front line when his LaPierre/KOCH/gun manufacturer dream war starts. Reportedly the ILLEGITIMATE president “to restore program sending surplus military weapons and equipment to police.” Kissing the NRA’s arses while creating as much insecurity and chaos wherever possible, while trashing
    the rule of law and tying the hands of the vulnerable who speak out. America don’t wait until the last gasp to see the back of this domestic
    terrorist.

      Dear MLK,
      May the Nation rise up against the Nazi President, the people he is fronting and all who are enabling him. May we live in a land of dialogue, equality and prosperity (Scandinavia has been doing it for a long time). May all beings in all the worlds be happy, peaceful and free from suffering. Love to you and your family with eternal thanks.

      KOCH and EXXON may be funding these ’bouts’ just as they did at Tea Party events. (Remembering Town Halls where tea partiers stood facing us exhibiting their guns.) We know they stir up trouble at peaceful rallies and events. Let’s hear more from the media about the perpetrators.

    Texans: be sure to file for #Harvey relief before Sept 1. #TXlege passed a bill making it harder to dispute weather-related property claims.

    FEMA is broke and according to congressman Castro dem.. after sept first Texas passed a bill making it harder to attain a claim due to this kind of natural disaster.
    But all republicans have talking points saying everything is wonderful…
    I just don’t know where any of this money is coming from.
    Furthermore, it’s disconcerting to see republican officials go on tv and say all the services are being provided … u can see otherwise on tv.
    The damn sheriffs office from Harris county just tweeted put out a sheet on ur house if you need help…
    Wtf ? Really?

      Of course Texas would pass a bill making it legal for insurance companies to fuck over its customers. Its Texas for christ sakes, this is horrible.

      • August 28, 2017 at 3:47 pm

        Senator Cronyn number two senator in the chamber … only mentioned neighbors and state ahd local officials…
        Not one ? about federal response in that press conference…
        FEMA is being inundated with questions and he is giving the needed responses ..
        But where is the money coming from? Entire communities are totaled ! 🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈

          August 28, 2017 at 3:50 pm

          This is where the states rights bullshit is all bullshit, because every time there’s a disaster the first place the states turn to is the Federal government. Cronyn doesn’t even know if he’s on foot or horseback.

      You know the #GOP is lying when they start telling Us that The Gov’t & Everyone are working beautifully. Today, just on twitter, the Foolish GOP TX Gov is now saying that the rescue operations are Now just beginning……that 12K or so National Guards, all that TX Guard Units are about to be deployed today.
      Thank goodness that the 107 deaths in 2005 or so will not be repeated thanks to Decisions made Not to evacuate or tried to as they did many yrs ago. TX is Not NOLA. They are not in a bowl. H20 will eventually go down. But heartache for folks will no doubt increase.

  34. August 28, 2017 at 3:50 pm

    A reminder : trumps budget calls for all sorts of cuts to FEMA including 191 million of fwiw flood insurance ….

    Republicans can’t blame obama anymore this is on them …
    Meanwhile the government is supposed to shut down in thirty days? 😳

      Republicans don’t actually care about the citizens of Texas. Or any other state.

      And I wish that were a lie.

      He can’t make his boss Vlad angry.

      So he gives his stock evasive answer “from many sides”. He can’t or won’t single out the TRUE culprit, so ‘lots’ are to blame.

      GE JO’B.

      Man, I hope that FUBAR’s three (!!!) trips to Hurricane Harvey areas keeps him preoccupied — swear I saw a tweet today that said DJT is planning to be in TX again on Sat and in Louisiana on Sun, but can’t find it — maybe it was deleted, and contained incorrect info… But bottom line is, I HOPE FUBAR DOESN’T START A WAR WITH NORTH KOREA because he needs a distraction from Russia probe. 😦

      More on this later (hopefully tonight, and since you’re a nightowl will try to reply to you later)…

        It boggles the mind! I heard trump plans on going to Corpus Christi tomorrow, then possibly back to TX and LA on Saturday. HOPE HE PLAYS GOLF INSTEAD. Nobody needs him anywhere near the flooded areas.

      GA DF.

      No surprise at all, figured as much on Friday… that’s why I’m terrified that FUBAR is considering a preemptive strike against North Korea (see my response to JO’B upthread).

      And just saw this — only tweets I can find about the situation in Clovis NM (which is basically west Texas, not the central and northern New Mexico dear to my heart).

      But man, Americans should not need to worry about getting shot at a public library:

      Looks like that tweet has the incorrect number of injured:
