It isn’t Pork when I benefit

Sadly and predictably, the entire contingent of House Republicans from Colorado asked (practically begged) the federal government for emergency funding in the wake of massive flooding in Colorado, but they all voted against emergency relief for Superstorm Sandy victims on the East Coast just a few months ago.

The same Republicans also signed a letter asking for federal aid for the Colorado wildfires earlier this summer.

And of course, all four of them are deniers of climate science.

    Yes,here in Colorado we have a disconnect from reality. We know that the “cowboy” and “mountain man” myths of going it alone and building it “all by yourself” are BS, all it takes is one search and rescue mission or fire in the mountains to disabuse us of the myths. And yet, we still see right wing pols reelected term after term. Says a lot about us being in the lowest quartile for school funding, me thinks.(sigh)
