    We need to help the people of Moore, Oklahoma because thats what we do as a country


    of people who care about our fellow countrymen but the people of the red states need to vote out the slime who don't care about anyone other than themselves. Two US Reps from Oklahoma along with all the US Reps from Kansas and a host of others, voted against aid for the Hurricane Sandy victims. These are two states that have gotten huge amounts of money from the US for disaster relief. You people need to vote them out and get some real Americans in there. 67 US Reps voted against aid for the Hurricane Sandy Victims that were devastated by the storm, all republicans.

    • Walmart had trucks in Moore last night. Free water, batteries , blankets and food. Walmart is about America no matter what people think of them and has ALWAYS been first on sight.

      Sentiment: Buy

      • Here are some details about Convoy of Hope. Instead of lieing to try and make Wal-Mart look good you should send a donation with the text information at the end of the story. How could you stoop so low trying to build a company up with a lie when people are hurting so bad?. Maybe they will end up sending supplies but they have not yet and your post was a lie.
        6:27 a.m. CDT, May 21, 2013
        SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Springfield-based humanitarian organization Convoy of Hope has begun sending trucks with emergency supplies to the Moore, Oklahoma area, the morning after a devastating tornado claimed dozens of lives there and left a path of destruction.
        Assessment teams with Convoy of Hope had arrived shortly after the tornadoes hit, according to a news release from Convoy of Hope.
        "This is only the first phase of a full-scale response that will last for many weeks, if not months," Hal Donaldson, president of Convoy of Hope, said in the news release. "In the coming days we will send more food, water and supplies to help families begin rebuilding their lives."

        The trucks as well as disaster response team members left for Moore, Okla. early Tuesday morning and were expected to arrive by noon. Convoy of Hope will partner with officials at all levels as well as churches and other organizations to find out where help is needed most.
        If you'd like to make a donation to Convoy of Hope's relief efforts you can text "Convoy" to 50555. That will make a $10 donation.

      • That is a lie. I have a relative who is trained and helping out there and there were no trucks in Moore with relief supplies last night and as of noon today the only relief truck to have come in was from the group Convoy of Hope.

      By the way. When you vote next time, you may want to check which candidate is committed to doing something about global warming, instead of one owned by corporate interests, who will destroy our world just so the corporations can make a bit more money now. Anybody who looks at the real facts instead of listening to the corporate controlled media knows that global warming is destroying our planet. NOAA has been warning us for many years now that global warming is the increasing the severity of our storms, floods, droughts and temperature extremes. The earth can only tolerate so much abuse and we will eventually reach a time when its too late, if we're not there already. Of course, if you don't care about the lives of your children and grandchildren, then just carry on as normal.

      And even more people are going to die in these storms. Call your congressmen and tell them to get off their #$%$ and start thinking about the people of this country, instead of their own narrow-minded personal games.
      An 8.2 percent across-the-board cut in spending, from the so-called sequester, will trim already financially-depleted programs critical for maintaining and improving the NWS’ weather capabilities.
      “It’s not going to be pretty,” said outgoing National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration chief Jane Lubchenco at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (according to Climate Central). “The sequester has the potential to wreak havoc with so many different things...”
      The cuts loom large following a two-year onslaught of extreme weather, including Superstorm Sandy and continuing historic drought conditions in the Heartland. In 2011 and 2012, the U.S. experienced the most and second most number of billion dollar weather disasters on record.
      “Sequestration substantially increases the risk that the United States will not be a weather-ready nation,” said Kevin Kelly, a lobbyist at Van Scoyoc Associates, who advocates for the weather enterprise. “Communities that experience a heightened risk of severe weather – which affects large portions of the nation in the spring and summer – face the chance of greater danger because the Weather Service will not be operating at 100 percent.”
      The cash-strapped National Weather Service is facing increasing scrutiny over its inferior computer modeling power compared to international peers and is anticipating a likely gap in weather satellite coverage. Last week, the Government Accountability Office ranked the pending satellite gap among the top 30 threats facing the Federal government.
      The Department of Commerce warned that not only will the loss of satellite data and imagery diminish the quality of forecasts, but so will other important weather data surrendered by spending cuts.

    • What an imbecile. Playing politics during a time of tragedy like America just experienced. Just when you start believing that common sense has prevailed, a post like this arises.
