    I was instead thinking how he was like a hard and crusty, yet stunningly attractive, ball of congealed mucus.

    (I kid, of course. J.S. is amazing.)

    There is legitimate concerns about some very bad people who take the advantage of disasters like this to come on in. It's a reason why Trump declined. The Bahamas in spite of its reputation , isn't exactly at the pinnacle of the ideal human society that we all allegedly strive for.

    I would think we'd be sending a considerable amount of aid however to help out with reconstruction and the like.

    Can you think about this for yourself, or do you just parrot what Trump says??

    What's with this xenophobic panic that seems to have swept over America? Are we a nation of frightened mice?
    Whatever happened to the land of the free and the home of the brave?

    It would seem so, although historically, xenophobia and racism are nothing new in America. It seems the current debate is between xenophobes and xenophiles, but there doesn't appear to be any real moderate position or middle ground.

    It's a good question (objections to it notwithstanding).
    USA & others are sending aid.
    Trump administration isn't granting temporary protection for Bahamians
    No one has made the argument that TPS is necessary.
    Perhaps it is, but it shouldn't be presumed automatically.

    Not to anyone, it seems.


    There are about 700 islands that make up the Bahamas and only one was completely devastated. You telling me that the Bahamanian government can get this handful of TPS folks to another island?

    That was exactly my point. Can we all chant "knee jerk" in unison?

    No, they weren't...

    It's not the first time the Bahamas have been hammered by a Hurricane.

    So our right wing commentators are minimizing the extent of the most powerful hurricane to ever happen in the Atlantic, and especially the most powerful to hit the Bahamas, sick and disgusting comments.

    Oh, sometimes you need to make hard decisions. That doesn't negate the fact that we're sending Aid down there which is definitely a plus once the logistics snafu clears up. The Bahamas will be back to its mean and terrible self in no time. Maybe the drug cartels should contribute a little so the crime bosses can have a vacation down there again.

    So you think we should treat them worse than we treated Puerto Rico, I think we've offered about 2 million so far.
