This afternoon, President Obama traveled to central Arkansas to tour the areas affected by last week’s tornadoes and severe storms.

 

Upon arriving, the President talked with some of the families who lost loved ones as a result of the tornadoes, as well as some of the first responders, recovery workers, and members of the National Guard that are helping the community recover.

 

He also took time to view the devastation wrought by the tornadoes, before delivering remarks about the disaster – and the road ahead.

 

“The federal government’s going to be right here until we get these communities rebuilt,” said the President. “Because when something like this happens to a wonderful community like this one, it happens to all of us.”

  1. We didn’t hear about these this time. I think it could be because the news is mainly taken with the girls in Nigeria.

    • Yes, the #BringBackOurGirls campaign is very important, it should take precedence over anything else right now. How you’re doing good.

      • It should. US and UK are sending people to help find them. What about Australia, France, Germany, Iceland. Can’t they send people as well?

      • Remember, these are Black girls. Not as important as if they were caucasian girls. Remember that.

  2. One wonders, how do you continue to rebuild under these circumstances. Then you wonder, how do you listen to your President and still find fault.

    • Racism to question number 2. Stupidity to question number 1, you cannot beat mother nature and when she takes your home one time, thats all it would take for me, time to move elsewhere.

      • You beat me over the head with the same answer, I know it I just continue to be amazed at the sheer ignorance of my fellow man and woman. I am dumbfounded by them. Then I am heartbroken.

        As to the other, yes I know it is odd. I live in Tornado Alley though and have lived by active Volcano’s, even skied them. I love storms, real true storms and used to sail on the sea in really heavy winds, where you could tact with the boom rope in your hand and your back nearly to the sea. Some people, I guess they don’t really have terribly good sense.

      • Yes, some people who date danger, usually get fucked by dates end. ;-)

      • Controlled danger usually turns out well, we shall see.
