John, I am not concerned about hate groups at this time.  Just concerned how much flooding we will get when it reaches our area. 

 

But come the comments so far, I do get an idea of how much human concern and compassion the posters on this forum possesses. 

 

Thank you and others for confirming it.


You should always be concerned about hate groups and strive to make sure you never give or seem to give comfort to them. Yes you are going some real rough times now, and the people there deserve the support and help of every American, and we do that through our Fed. Govt., and private groups like the Red Cross. To make sure we give the proper help in times of disaster we must plan ahead and spend money to make that happen. Every section of the US must support this effort, and areas where we can have problems must do everything they can to plan how to handle it. That means we need good people handling things for us in DC at the top. Right now we have good people for what you are going through, but that will not last unless there are changes in DC quickly. Good luck to you and your family in the next few days, and I hope there are no diversions from the relief effort due to sight seers from DC.

Further one has to wonder if liberals here have their priorities wrong that they support gays, etc, but has no compasion for average Americans. 

 

 

Does that mean that that those who through no deliberate conscious choice of their own are heterosexual - should be preferred/favored over those who through no deliberate conscious choice of their own are homosexual?

Should I prefer helping a straight person who discriminates based upon another's sexual preference - over one who is homosexual, but doesn't discriminate - realizing that no one - ever - has been able to make a deliberate conscious choice as to whether they're straight or gay?
"wrong"?  
People believed the earth was flat - they always were wrong.
Some people believe sexual orientation doesn't take place in utero...
They have always been as wrong as flat eartthers.
When Nixon ran against Kennedy and the debates were televised -  one could listen to the subscript between the lines and hear the bigotry and prejudice.
Never did contenance that stuff - still don't.

I have our house sandbagged in anticipation of the nearby river cresting this week.  Be watching for the volunteers and trucks, people will appreciate the assistance.

 

But apparently some here are so wrapped up in politics they've lost their compassion...they forget that there are also Democrats in Texas, and if any of them are missing, less chance of winning the state.

 

Further one has to wonder if liberals here have their priorities wrong that they support gays, etc, but has no compasion for average Americans.  This country is indeed in serious trouble!!

 

Finally 'it rains on the just and the unjust' [Matthew 5:45].  I'm sure they'll appreciate this if another Hurricane Sandy hits the East Coast, or if a record blizzard smothered the North, or another drought or wildfires in the West.


Read your 3rd para. Are you saying that gays etc are not average Americans? That would be the view of the KKK, and Nazi. By the way some time ago I posted about the 2 hate Org. which were listed in my State. Both are Christian Groups and even have Christian in their name. Well the police radded one site a week ago. Arrested 8. One has 400 counts of child abuse against him. They removed 11 children, and quite a few are being held with out bail. They found 2 bodies buried on the property for over a year. Family of one said their girl has been missing for that time and they asked the Christian Group for info on her and could not get any.

There are bad people in every group, and that means Christian Groups also and they should be called out by all.

Have not seen this with Harvey. Because it happened to Texas or has their line gotten so old even they recognise it?


Sure looks that way...

 

Besides it had long been recognized as just another kind of con game/scam.

 

Could the lemontop skidmark's  incessant con games have made everyone desensitized to scams and con games?
