    I can't believe the Republican Congress....I've known all along that they don't care one bit about the American people but to turn their backs on the Sandy victims is just unconscionable. Everyone of them should be fired.

    I understand why. The bill had so much pork in it that is was not about helping Sandy victims. It was just another crazy spending Bill that needed to be stopped.

    Apples & Oranges.

    This is an example of someone abusing the Second Amendment. Since this is a routine occurrence now, it's proves that people REFUSE to be responsible and thus their privileges (to leave guns & ammo lying about rather than securely stored) should be curtailed. I assume you are fully aware of "Thy shalt not lead us into temptation"?

    We did that here a quarter century ago and nothing like it has happened since, same thing in the UK & Australia.

    Other than basic grief/loss counseling, offering a largess may prompt some (unscrupulous) civic official to give the local 'bad seed' some drugs, booze & armaments and induce him (almost always guys) to go on a rampage so they can get compensation funds to build a new town hall.

    Potentially costly PRECEDENT, of which RWNJ's worship.

    It's almost always far less costly to PREVENT a problem rather than to do (even less than) a perfunctory attempt to REPAIR the damage. Penny wise & pound foolish.

    Unlike Katrina, the great bulk of Sandy's victims were not people of color or cover. Hence the lack of concern by 0bama's regime..

    I find it repulsive that they cannot help their own tax payers who pay their salaries. How contemptible is that? They should all be canned and sent home with no retirement.

    In part, due to the fact that there is a lot of extra pork added to that relief act. Damn Politicians can't pass any law without pork in it!

    I don't think it's just the Sandy thing, I think it's the timing it happened, and that time is we the people are broke, there isn't any money to pour out of the taxpayers coffer right now.
    Besides our political leaders got more pressing things on their minds like licking their pride after that fiscal crap they created for themselves.
    Yupp, when things are good the money flows to the dumbest of projects, then when the money is tight even the well deserved get screwed. That's the political arena.

    We citizens will have to learn to do for ourselves, because we know we won't get help from our government in times of bad economics, even if our own government caused those bad economics!
