Incredible devastation with sandy too spring, Absolutely heartwrenching... The flinging judgemnets of what my questions and statements are not is nothing new and it's no surprise who was doing it either.

I don't get it though as I didn't see the question as a non-human to the tragedy that has happened. Just like if a question about security guards in school right after the Newtown shootings.

If they can minimize earthquake damage in Japan by simply researching and changing the building codes, we certainly should've prevented the devastation from tornadoes.

Good analogy, the gun debate that arose from Newtown, Absolutely!  Like I said, No surprise who was flinging that attacks.

"the aforementioned friend who just lost her husband at the ripe old age of 45 leaving her with four kids under the age of 9" --------- Oh no! I am so sorry.

People are raw at the moment.  I was just so thrilled that the stupid news agency insanely exaggerated their numbers.  There was a lot learned about asbestos, fire retardation after 9/11; a need for new building codes for Habitat for Humanity after tornadoes in Texas this May.

I agree... We're finding out now that 24 died not twice as many like originally reported?  Gee!

Well that's a lot.  But still these news agencies are downright criminal.

"Sigh, Rock on Obama supporter!" ------------- That was not the point. I am not an Obama supporter, but I too would like to know what the back-up is for the claim that the Red Cross tried to profit from a hurricane by selling food and water to the victims.

The inaccuracies of news reporting is inasane..  But they know how to grab a lot of attention!
