When I look at a map of the U.S. that color-codes for Republican (red)/Democratic (blue) Governors, I see a strategically planned arrangement of states. Not for political reasons but for survival/economic reasons. Although many Republicans deny Climate Change is occurring, these maps reveal a different story. The Koch Brothers, having all the connections they do would have access to the same climate report information that the military does, but the military have been prevented from making best use of it. If they used it, that would confirm it.
The remark wasn't funny. I agree with Tom Hartmann that it is a cultural issue. A Caucasian policeman attempting to inject levity into the situation is someone that is insensitive given today's environment of police shootings of Blacks proprotionately and per capita.
The officer has been suspended. He needs to be retrained before "hitting" the streets again. He probably needs to patrol with a senior Black officer that can provide him some insight into what the Black community experiences everyday in the Atlanta area besides the training.
“We don’t need no stinkin’ guberment regulation, red tape or interference.” And we don’t need zoning and building codes, the absence of which allowed flood-prone areas to be developed for residential use.

One simple but important choice we have is what we focus on.
WORST flood in US history and NOT ONE article linking CLIMATE CHANGE to these events, instead we get 24/7 misinformation campaign. AMERICAS news sources should be classified as tabloid FLUFF.
Listening on Aug. 30, I heard Thom assert what most Reps want you to believe (but unduly) that POTUS cannot be jailed for crime, which is antithetical to the Constitution prohibition of Nobility and pardon for treason. Federal judges thought so to their dismay. No person is immune for such acts other than illegally by their government coactors. One caller asked about "tolling" which relates to the statute of limitations, whereby Trump can be prosecuted after he is impeached or simply leaves office, causing abatement of the statute during such time, if Congress will or won't do it's duty...
