    Oh and FYI, Harris County went blue last year. So your point is a bust.
    I don't understand the first statement, what political points?

    Too little too late=two senators from Texas and both voted against funding when it wasn't Texas on the receiving end of the disaster=karma is a bitch.

    They don't have electricity, so they won't see it.

    Aw, c'mon. Actual victims? People who nearly drowned?

    I am impressed they can vocalize recognizable words.

    But there might be an ignorant jerk who talks about you the same way you talked about them.

    There's always a few...
    Actually I was living on the Delaware river in 96 and it flooded...I didn't thank god . I just the hell out of the house. It only came up to the first floor. It was scary...but you might know the friends I stayed with were making jokes.
    I am just making an observation...so do you think god saved them?

    I say thank god all the time and if you sneezed I would say god bless you....these are called figures of speech and not literal speech,

    Obviously not.

    But what you experienced is different from this event in Houston. These people only see destruction and only interact with other victims. They cannot escape. It's the difference between having your house burn down, and having your house burn down in a wildfire that blankets half of California.

    It fucks with the mind, badly.

    Lol what political points? and then she immediately launches into a political point.
    And the reason they voted against that bill is because it was loaded with non hurricane related pork.
