About The Author

  • OldnyFirefighter

    If you are going to live in tornado alley, you are gambling with nature. The same goes living in flood prone areas or along the East Coast from Virginia all the way to Key West. If you live there long enough, mother nature will catch you when you don’t expect it. If I planned on living in tornado country, my home would be constructed or reinforced concrete. The initial cost would be considerable higher but your home would survive with minor damage at most. Being a structural engineer would be a plus, but there are thousands that are capable of building such a structure. The same goes for hurricane prone areas. Flood plains are not a good place to build a home period.  I think climate change & severe weather has more to do with sunspot activity than it does events caused by man. These events were happening long before humans arrived & is part of normal events in nature. Man will never control the weather, as many can’t even control themselves.

      The data directly correlates, so I would say that’s a given.

      Man will never control the weather, as many can’t even control themselves.

    The Native Americans wouldn’t camp in areas where tornados and lightning hit the ground. Makes sense to me.

    Personal choice. It is well known that living in that area is at high risk. In fact, the principal cause for loss of human life and property loss due to extreme weather is because of locating in high risk but desirable areas.

    That’s how civilization is sustained. That’s how we overcome fear, distrust, and envy. Through voluntary association, mutual aid in time of distress, and respecting each other as individuals.

    They save a shrub, but slaughter birds by the tens of thousands. The “environmentalists” are nothing if inconsistent.

    Where’s the outrage from Al, Jesse, and the Panthers?

    Was it intra-racial violence? There is no profit or power to be reaped in saving their own.

    Everything he does serves to disenfranchise American citizens. This seems to be a behavior common to the “American” left.

    Time’s Joe Klein Says the Election Isn’t About Obama’s Record

    Oh yes it is. It is about imposing progressive obstacles to domestic resource recovery and development, his effort to denigrate individual dignity, his support for elective abortion of developing human life, and so many other policies which sponsor corruption.

    Silverman is demented if she doesn’t understand what “pro-choice” actually represents. Unfortunately, she is not alone in either her ignorance or demand for instant and self-gratification.

    I’m pregnant – woman’s search for father

    Well, I assume every individual possesses an inherent dignity; but, the evidence suggests that is not a universal characteristic.

    The Brits honor Washington by naming him as their greatest and most successful adversary. Americans demonstrate the same respect for their enemies, including some American Indians.

    If we assume human lives are without an inherent dignity (e.g. processed by incidental features, subject to elective abortion) then this behavior is normal.

    America is rotting from the head, but it didn’t start there. We need to reject policies which sponsor corruption of individuals, families, and society.

    Here Are The Wild Details From The Secret Service’s Prostitution Scandal

    When you link to the above article, the site uses an unrelated flickr photo of a bunch of legs to “illustrate” the hookers.  But when you link to the uncropped photo, you find out that at least two of the legs belong to guys.

    My first thought when I heard about the scandal was that maybe it was a “Crying Game” situation.

    Where does the Secret Service buck stop?   Isn’t Obama’s White House open minded about everything?  The fish rots from the head on down.

    The gods are angry about Obama’s presumptuousness and tornadoes are just their first stroke.   Does that arrogant clown believe his affirmative action diplomas have any value or that he can control the level of the seas?

    “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’” ~Reagan.    It will be topped with ten terrifying new words,  “I’m Barack and want to spend your money my way.”

    Ann Romney.

    Or maybe the Ryan budget.
