Have you any sympathy for any of the people in the towns in America hit by Tornedo's?

    For me if they were driving around in big gas guzzling trucks or cars then I have zero sympathy. For thoughs who had normal 2.0litre Focus or Corrola cars OK I do.

    The reason being they have known for years now about climate change and its caused by all the poisons out of these big gas guzzling machines. If they had downsized a decade or two ago the Tornedo might have been less severe at Rolling Fork in Missisippi and all the other places they hit. Yes I know they are caused by cold and warm air mixing in the atmosphere but they are more commen now because of human pollution into the atmosphere.

    Maybe this is a lessen to them that it's time to downsize there massive vehicles for the next generation.

    Live long and Prosper

    Peace and long life.

    So you've no sympathy for people who lost their homes, family members , possessions and livelihoods because some people drive large vehicles? I'm sorry but that's one major lack of empathy and tarring everybody with the one brush. If you were killed by a fallen tree in the next storm here would we be justified in having no sympathy for you or your family because some people down the road from you drive a large car or fly abroad on holidays every year? Your logic escapes me.

    And they have the money to rebuild each and every house destroyed. Oh wait, no they would rather spend that money on funding a war.

    Do we now only reserve sympathy and empathy for those who drive cars we approve of?

    Did I miss the memo?

    What an idiotic opening post.

    It should be pointed out that AMKC is big Formula 1 fan (she posts on the Motorsport forum regularly) but yet bizarrely thinks because a few people in Mississippi have pick up trucks they deserve to have their entire lives ruined.

    So using her logic. I imagine that considering her support for Forumula 1 and the gigantic negative impact n the environment of it and of the companies involved in it she also thinks if her home is completely destroyed and her friends or family are killed due to a storm in Ireland It will also be impossible to feel any sympathy for her.

    This is getting tiresome. Whenever I see a stupid thread title i play a little game with myself. Which one of the rapidly diminishing group of wannabe edge lords posted this one.

    i knew this one was the user with the warbird avatar before clicking into it
