  1. About 90% of the costs to clean-up Joplin will be paid for by FEDERAL monies. However, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) doesn’t want to help any of this spring’s tornado VICTIMS until the Congress can find some way of allocating the money (whenever that might be!). SW Missouri and the Ozarks is very Republican, and dominated by fundamentalist christians, particularly the pentecostals like Assemblies of God and Baptists. Nearby is Branson, MO, the “redneck Las Vegas” and just across the state line is Harrison, Arkansas, national headquarters of the Knights of the Klu Klux Klan. So I would imagine that there are many teabaggers there who “hate” the federal government but will take federal money anyway.

    However, one Alabama small town mayor is refusing to allow FEMA to move in trailers for those whose homes were destroyed recently. The town has a three-year-old ordinance against “single-wide” mobile homes and this mayor thinks “laws are laws” and could care less about helping out the people in need. Could it be that the mayor doesn’t want FEDERAL FEMA in his town?
