    like, apparently, my Congressman, Pat Tiberi, and another Congressman in my area, Steve Stivers, voted against this bill.  I wonder how they would have voted if last summer's derecho was a major tornado that had gone through our area leaving major devastation in their back yard?  

    The House 'publicans are proving they are clueless and deaf to the needs of average Americans.

    For at least another hundred years we must pretend to ourselves and to everyone that fair is foul and foul is fair; for foul is useful and fair is not. Avarice and usury and precaution must be our gods for a little longer still. --John Maynard Keynes

      I would like to see how they would vote if the disaster were closer to home. It's easy to act like an asshole from hundreds of miles away.
