15. YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!

I've been wondering how long it'd be before we'd start seeing this, or hearing it, from ANYWHERE.

I couldn't help it, and I apologize if it seems hard-hearted, but I found myself wondering how many of those unfortunate folks in Tornado Alley voted for romney - who fulminated repeatedly about the NERVE, the very OUTRAGE, of wanting to hire MORE police, more firefighters, more teachers... and "burden" the taxpayers, and how they think they're ENTITLED! Who the hell do they think they are? Do they know how much that's gonna cost? And blah-blah-blah. How many of them bought into that and thought it was a good thing? I bet they think differently now - since those same humble teachers and first responders have repeatedly proven they're MORE THAN worth their weight in gold-pressed latinum. When they personally made the difference between whether your precious child lived or died. I wonder if this has changed anyone's mind.

I found myself thinking about that in other cases, too - like with the Jersey Shore or in the path of some other destructive monster storm, OR lunatic with a destructive monster gun or homemade bomb, too, for that matter.

And I wonder how soon they'll forget. And go back to the republi-CON gospel of cruelty and selfishness and shortsightedness - that all those whining teachers and first-responder leaches of your tax money are just useless and they should all be fired, and government is your enemy and is just bad and too expensive and doesn't do anything for you or help pull you out of a jam.

Good Grief, these voters need some serious re-education!!!!!!
