Kansas gets hit with an F5 tornado, the most violent weather phenomenon in the world. A mile wide twister with 300mph winds destroying everything in it's path. Also known as, The Finger Of God. Every uprooted item becoming a deadly projectile. An entire town completely destroyed.
Time to call up The Kansas National Guard. The "well regulated militia" described in the 2nd Amendment. Only they have the equipment and the organization to cope with a disaster of this magnitude.
Oops! Wait a minute...
"Sebelius expressed concern that rescue and recovery efforts were being further strained because much of the needed equipment has been sent to Iraq.
'When the troops get deployed, the equipment goes with them. So here in Kansas about 50 percent of our trucks are gone. We need trucks. We are missing Humvees, we're missing all kinds of equipment that could help us respond in this kind of emergency,' said Sebelius."
The citizens of Kansas can't rely on the Kansas National Guard for help because President Dubya has them deployed in Iraq fighting an unwinnable war against an enemy that didn't exist before we got there, for reasons that were fabricated to justify a pre-existing idealogical agenda.
Sorry, Greensburg, KS. Guess you'll just have to take the conservative Republican approach and pull yourselves up by your own bootstraps without whining and relying on help from the government. After all, it WAS an Act Of God.
Good luck and God Bless!
