The devastation in Oklahoma is hard to fathom. The pictures and the videos only tell part of the story. The remainder is told in the human stories that you will see and hear over coming days.
Right now people need help and they need it fast to cover basic needs like food and water. Hours after the storm ripped through Moore, Oklahoma my friends at Mercury One, Glenn Beck and Joe Kerry, left Dallas with truckloads of basic goods. You can help them deliver more.
Mercury One will pass on 100% of all money raised to those in need, no administrative overhead. If you can give, this is the charity I recommend.
Here are a couple of pictures taken early this morning by Paige Perry with The Blaze.
More from Paige and crew here.
There are many more stories to come. Please if you can give, give now.

Back when I started applying for jobs, sometime shortly after the medieval warm period, there were certain questions that employers could not ask applicants. Questions regarding your ethnic or religious background were forbidden, questions of race were out of the question, even marital status could be considered a no-no.
That’s all passe and now, thanks to years of affirmative action, we are no longer colour blind or looking past other issues, we ask about them up front in the name of diversity. But asking about your sexual preferences is new to me.
Andrew Lawton has an interesting story on the latest fad in HR queries – U of T wants to know who you prefer having sex with.
Beyond the usual “Members of Visible Minorities,” “Sex,” “Aboriginal Peoples” and “Persons with Disabilities,” was a field I had never seen on a job application before.
It asked, “Do you identify as a sexual minority (e.g. lesbian, gay, bisexual, two-spirited, queer or transgender)?”.
Read the whole thing and weep for the decline of Western civilization.

OPSEU’s silly human rights complaint
by Jerry Agar
Here’s more evidence that public unions are out of their minds.
The Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU), representing LCBO employees, has filed a gender-discrimination complaint against the liquor retailer with the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario.
Their argument? OPSEU alleges the LCBO is discriminating against women, since 70% of their casual workers — those working less than 40 hours, with fewer benefits — are women. Read more…
