John Sidney “Moses” McCain

Pardon the blasphemy.

The Arizona Republic:

The senator also vowed to protect New Orleans from future Category 5 hurricanes, seeming to give little regard to costs.

“First of all, to protect the lives of American citizens, we can always find the money,” McCain said. “One of the ways we can find the money is by reprioritizing the public-works projects, which are now based too often on the power of an individual congressman or senator rather on the basis of priority or need and cross-benefit.”

So, how exactly does he plan to protect a city against a Category 5 hurricane with wind speeds equal to or greater than 156 mph and 18 feet or greater storm surges?

A Category 5 hurricane’s wind speeds are equal to an EF3 (136–165 mph) or an EF4 (166–200 mph) on the Enhanced Futija Scale:

An EF3 causes the following damage:

Entire stories of well-constructed houses destroyed; severe damage to large buildings such as shopping malls; trains overturned; trees debarked; heavy cars lifted off the ground and thrown; structures with weak foundations blown away some distance.

An EF4 causes the following damage:

Well-constructed houses and whole frame houses completely leveled; cars thrown and small missiles generated.

So, is this “Moses” McCain’s master plan?:

Again, bonus points if you can name the source of that video.

    There was a politician who died prematurely. He went up to Saint Peter, but Saint peter wasn’t ready for him. St. Peter told him he would have to wait in hell until he was ready.

    The politician went to hell and there were golf courses and swimming pools, beautiful women, anything the politician wanted.

    St. Peter called him back up and asked where he wanted to go. The politician replied back to hell.

    When he got back to the gates of hell, there was fire and screams and torture.

    The politician asked what happen to the golf courses and women and pools. Satan replied, “Last week we were campaigning, we won, now it back to business as usual.”
