1850-2010 Hurricane hype

PRAYERS! Prayer is so important. Hurricane Irma is in the ocean now. Please pray it dies out or redirects and doesn’t hit Texas, Louisiana, or Haiti!!

2017_08 39 Texans line up to volunteer

I need a tissue! Maybe I’m just being whelmed by the fact that my own flesh and blood was involved in this rescue. Or maybe it really is a story you’ll be glad you took the time to read in full. The thumbnails on the top right go to the rest of the photos Capt Nigrelle took of the rescue of a paralyzed man and his wife that ultimately involved Texas National Guard soldiers, Texas Task Force 1 and Austin-Travis County Emergency Medical Service swift water rescue technicians, the U.S. Coast Guard, and local volunteers.


BE CAREFUL HOW YOU DONATE TO HARVEY RELIEF! Anti-Israel, Sharia law loving activist Linda Sarsour sparked outrage after she asked her followers on Twitter to donate to help Hurricane Harvey victims, but the link takes you to a political activist group.

    Governor Terry McAuliffe’s efforts to evade responsibility for the shocking violence at Charlottesville just got even more implausible. He and local authorities were warned, and yet allowed, if not forced, the two violence-prone parties into such close proximity that violence was a near certainty.

    ABC, CBS and NBC evening news programs all ignored the Aug 30, 2017, economic report showing our second quarter economic growth had hit 3%, which was significantly higher than the 2.7 percent expected. Hurricane coverage naturally dominated the news that night, but that didn’t stop ABC from finding time to tell us that John McCain is returnind to D.C. after his latest round of cancer treatments, CBS from finding time to complain that Trump and his defense secretary were sending “mixed messages” on North Korea, or NBC from finding time to tell us that men are becoming fathers later in life.
