Republicans have an apparent new Mantra, even for matters such as Gun Control: "Use Both Hands!" (See Below: Indigenous Peoples say, "Use Both Tongues!)

Rep. Cantor will of course not allow any federal Disaster relief, without first cutting all the military and civilian federal spending in Texas: Way before FEMA arrives on Wednesday. Apparently the Socialists are Still In Control!

Republicans have their own concept of relief of diasters, especially for warm disasters: "Use both Hands," and keep them warm Just like Governor Perry believes about Gun Control!

There is no Global Warming according to Perry, and So Rep Cantor just seems to have the Republican response. . .in hand(s)!

Crews Strained as Texas Fires Destroy 1,000 Homes...

Perry Deploys Elite Search Team as Texas Wildfires Destroy 1,000 Homes
September 07, 2011 | One of the most devastating wildfire outbreaks in Texas history left more than 1,000 homes in ruins Tuesday and stretched the state's firefighting ranks to the limit, confronting Gov. Rick Perry with a major disaster at home just as the Republican presidential contest heats up.
More than 180 fires have erupted in the past week across the rain-starved Lone Star State, and nearly 600 of the homes destroyed since then were lost in one catastrophic blaze in and around Bastrop, near Austin, that raged out of control Tuesday for a third day. Whipped into an inferno by Tropical Storm Lee's winds over the weekend, the blaze burned more than 45 square miles (116 sq. kilometers), forced the evacuation of thousands and killed at least two people, bringing the overall death toll from the outbreak to at least four.

Perry cut short a presidential campaign trip to South Carolina to deal with the crisis. On Tuesday, he toured a blackened area near Bastrop, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) from Austin, and later deployed the state's elite search team to the area to look for more possible victims. Texas Task Force 1 is the same outfit sent to New York following the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and to New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. "Pretty powerful visuals of individuals who lost everything," he said after the tour. "The magnitude of these losses are pretty stunning."

The governor would not say whether he would take part in Wednesday evening's Republican presidential debate in California, explaining that he was "substantially more concerned about making sure Texans are being taken care of." But campaign spokesman Mark Miner said in an email later in the day that Perry planned to be there. Perry, a favorite of the conservative tea-party movement who has made a career out of railing against government spending, said he expects federal assistance with the wildfires, and he complained that red tape was keeping bulldozers and other heavy equipment at the Army's Fort Hood, 75 miles (120 kilometers) from Bastrop, from being putting to use. Fort Hood was battling its own fire, a 3,700-acre (1,500-hectare) blaze.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said the Obama administration has approved seven federal grants to Texas to help with the latest outbreak, and "we will continue to work closely with the state and local emergency management officials as their efforts to contain these fires." About 1,200 firefighters battled the blazes, including members of local departments from around the state and crews from out of state, many of them arriving after Texas put out a call for help. More firefighters will join the battle once they have been registered and sent where they are needed. Five heavy tanker planes, some from the federal government, and three aircraft capable of scooping 1,500 gallons of water at a time from lakes also took part in the fight. "We're getting incredible support from all over the country, federal and state agencies," said Mark Stanford, operations director for the Texas Forest Service.

The disaster is blamed largely on Texas' yearlong drought, one of the most severe dry spells the state has ever seen. The fire in Bastrop County is easily the single most devastating wildfire in Texas in more than a decade, eclipsing a blaze that destroyed 168 homes in North Texas in April. Texas Forest Service spokeswoman April Saginor said state wildfire records go back only to the late 1990s.

Obama talks to Perry -- about wildfires
Sep 07, 2011 : Oh, to listen in on this presidential telephone conversation. President Obama and Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
The two presumably did not discuss the 2012 presidential race, focusing instead on wildfires that have ravaged parts of Texas. "Over the last several days, at the request of the Governor, the Administration has granted eight Fire Management Assistance Grants, making federal funds available to reimburse eligible costs associated with efforts to combat the fires," said a White House readout. The conversation took place before Perry joined the other GOP candidates at a debate in southern California.

A White House readout of the Obama-Perry conversation:

Today the President called Texas Governor Rick Perry to express his concern for citizens of Texas impacted by the unprecedented fires. During the call the President extended his condolences for the lives that have been lost as a result of these events, and made clear that the federal government, through DHS/FEMA and the U.S. Forest Service, will continue to make federal assistance available to state and local officials as they fight the fires.

The President also assured the Governor that requests for additional assistance, including as recovery begins, would be quickly assessed. Following the call, the President directed his national security staff to continue to work closely with FEMA, the Forest Service and the State of Texas to ensure we were making all resources available.

Over the last several days, at the request of the Governor, the Administration has granted eight Fire Management Assistance Grants, making federal funds available to reimburse eligible costs associated with efforts to combat the fires. FEMA is actively working with state and local officials to conduct damage assessments and to identify areas where additional federal assistance may be warranted.

The Republicans made light of current conditions in the United States, just last night. According to the debaters, the main problem with the economy is that Social Security is a Ponzi Scheme(?)! Even the Vice President, under Bush II, Terms I & II, knows better than that. Even Ronald Reagan could create a fix-it Commission, only 30 years ago.

So when all is said and done, Then Huntsman won the debate. The only growth and recovery model to be followed along in the debate: Is Chinese. It is not entirely clear, for example, that China is into nationwide, or congregation tithes. The Tea Party alternative of laissez-faire, Haiti and East Africa, did not surface.

Not in attendance, Rep. Cantor was probably on his own fact-finding tour--trying to get the federal money back, before it all burns up! East Africa the Republicans know a thing or two about. They are the Party of Abraham Lincoln!

Even under Cain's Plan, mainly the poor get an 18% or more apparent tax rate, maybe more if they are incorporated. Than along may have to come Rev. Huckabee again, explaining that the U. S. mortgage industry, and all of banking and credit--is mainly abomination to the mainstream, Lord of The West. It is in Proverbs 22:16: As well as in the New Testament, and in Exodus, Leviticus, and Deuteronomy.

Mormons seem to know about it, even though it is not Chinese. It is not clear at all just how the Chinese otherwise fit into. . . Even Utah(?)!

Now I know you're nuts when somehow you can combine laissez fair, Haiti, the Bible and Huntsman winning the debate.

If you are a Huntsman supporter, man oh man I pity his electoral chances.

There are liberals in Texas, so probably the Obama supporters are hoping for Wildfires federal relief: In the customary manner.

Rep. Cantor, famously. has a different take on what is needed, clearly.

The federal government, FBI, raided a California Green company this morning, possibly looking for the federal money behind it(?).

There were no reported homes being destroyed. There was only possibly missing federal money being reported--and the federal response was immediate!

What's in the Bible are prohibitions on profting from usury on the poor. In the United States, mostly everyone kept the money, anyway. Then billions worldwide know what happened after that!
