Is it bad that during a hurricane response I'm thinking that she's looking pretty hot?

Also, SJW whiners at the link: It's pretty common for the military to gift their Commander in Chief flight jackets. I wouldn't be surprised if they gave one to the first lady.

Edit: Okay, on seeing a more close up image, it appears the jacket is not GI.

The professor's "apology":

Quote
I apologize for the the tweets. My intention was never to offend anyone. This was a series of tweets taken out of context. I was referring to the GOP denial of climate change science and push to decrease funds from agencies that can help in a time like this. I hope all affected by the storm are safe and recover quickly. I also hope this helps the GOP realize the need to support climate change research and put in place better funding for agencies like NOAA and FEMA.

So the hurricane was caused by global warming, which must mean that if Trump had spent more money on climate change research rather than dropping out of the Paris accord, the hurricane could have been prevented.

As for more money to NOAA, how could that possibly help people whose homes are flooded? NOAA did their job -- they told people a big hurricane was coming, but the Democrats who run Houston told people not to evacuate.

Lastly, FEMA. Where does the Constitution give the feral government the authority or the duty to fix up homes in any one state at the expense of people in the other 49 states? All that does is encourage people to continue to build and live in places that are vulnerable to repeated storm damage. Absent massive federal intervention/interference, maybe people would have to do things like build cities in places that aren't located in a flood plain in a region prone to hurricanes.

Just as Hurricane Harvey was about to hit Texas last week, The New York Times did something that may have surprised its readers. While the rest of the nation was holding its breath as it wondered how those affected by the storm would fare, liberal elites were worried about the safety of their beliefs about the climate. Yet the flagship of liberal journalism published an article that poured cold water on the notion that climate change caused the devastation on the Gulf Coast.

I don't blame anyone about the evacuation versus sheltering in place.  I normally evacuate to my parent's house West of Houston (near the Colorado River but off Cummins Creek) and they got water right up to the house with the creek drainage though it never came in (receding now).  Given that it hit near Corpus Christi and flooded people all the way across to Beaumont, that is a pretty big footprint for any hurricane.  It is still dumping rain on people in its path.  This is a record breaking flood and the response at the local and state level has been pretty good from my perspective. 

Thankfully, the high predictions of the Brazos River level just upstream of us have been lowered a few feet.  I won't know for certain I am good until probably Saturday.  My brother is in Missouri City (Southwest Houston).  He is day to day right now.  His house is dry, but he is in an evacuation area that might flood when the river reaches peak depth.

I wouldn't, but perhaps a labor camp, with a special viewing area for the victims to sit and watch them breaking rocks for years on end.

I dunno.  The death penalty is kind of a "one and done" thing, while hard labor is "the gift that keeps on giving."

Evacuating Houston is a nightmare. After seeing the mess in '05, I can understand their hesitancy in issuing that order.

The Red Cross might finally be getting some bad press.

I think Twitchy is being a little hacky here trying to wrap Obama into it, because today Obama recommends them, tomorrow Trump will. Probably 8 out of 10 people would -- that's how good their PR machine is, which the article goes into a little bit. They are massive money wasters, as many of us have discussed here in the past. Hopefully some bad press will lead some folks to donate to organizations that direct more of their money to the event, versus their "operating funds".

I donated to Salvation Army, which has a special donation page running for the hurricane. Even with SA, you have to be a little careful nowadays. Not that they waste money, but I've been finding in their "general" donation fund, a lot of the money goes to addiction programs versus other kinds of help. I have no problem with people donating to that if they want to, but I prefer my money goes to victims of circumstance (to quote Curly Howard) rather than those who contributed to their problems. SA usually still lets you designate where your money goes, but you have to kind of hunt for that, or it goes straight to their general fund if you just click "donate".

With charities smaller is better. Less likely to get full of themselves.

Girls for Gunslinger and 5 Bravo's are doing a Harvey fundraiser. https://spin.org/g4g/harvey.asp

5B is based in Beaumont and is handling the distribution,  and full accounting of funds will be available on both FB pages. That's the kinda of charity I tend to gravitate to.

I would not give to the American Red Cross (too big and too wasteful), but I have considered giving to one of the local Red Cross chapters in SE Texas.  Maybe Matagorda County because my great aunt used to live there on the gulf side of the Intercoastal Waterway.  Does that work, or do they send the money to national?

I remember being evacuated by the Red Cross 10 or 15 years ago when visiting family at their new house in Sequin or New Braunfels (don't remember which and they don't live there anymore) and there was a massive rain and the Guadeloupe River flooded bigtime.  They hauled us out on the back of a big 18-wheeler with a flatbed trailer and we spent the night in a school; the RC and the local Walmart were wonderful.

I think spending the night in a shelter is a good experience for anybody, to see how some people live.  But I wouldn't seek out that experience Wink

I"ll probably just give to the Southern Baptists' disaster relief program (0% goes to overhead, and I volunteer for them sometimes) or the Samaritan's Purse.

Instead, we should build a water tight wall, 100 feet tall around Houston to protect it.

I'm glad you had a good experience with the Red Cross.  After seeing how they treated soldiers while on active duty, I wouldn't donate to them if you put a gun to my head.

Like Ben, I did the SA Harvey fund donation.   I'm with dogmush, smaller is usually better, I've also enjoyed 5 Bravo, so next donation goes to them.

Just watch out for fake charities and the shysters, like this *wow such a strong word to use, check your anger at the door*. Yeah, she's a *wow such a strong word to use, check your anger at the door*.
