My heart goes out to the people affected. We know a thing or two about flooding here in Iowa. It’s not pretty. It’s not fun. And it takes a long time to recover/rebuild.

Thanks for the video. If it wasn't for the fact I made friends with someone on Free Republic from Nashville, Tennessee, I would have known nothing about this.

The numbing of America?! Pray!

Well..at least the street lights are working.

Floods like these just keep going and going and going and going on and on.

What a mess.

Oh my dear Lord Jesus :(

I had no idea the situation was of this magnitude!

Why on this earth is this not on every news channel! I mean seriously, this is an outrage.

I am a Katrina survivor, the government helped me when I was screwed. If the same help is not made available to those who need such help in tennessee, then I don’t even know what to say.

I know you guys are very proud, and don’t want any government help. But you should have it, and I mean no insult by that. If anything, the purpose of the government is to protect its citizens, and by God if it can bail out every bank and other nation, than it can make funds available to americans who need them.

I better stop ranting before I get myself in trouble. God Bless Tennessee.

God bless you...I’ve been in Tn (Murfreesboro) for 7 years now...I love the people and what they represent when it comes to good foundational actions...God is first...lay it in His hands and do what we can do with His help and make things right!...I guess it’s a southern/TN thing!

Well, a previous President was accused of not helping fast enough because he hated people of a certain color. Is the mirror-image theory true for the current occupant of the White Crib?

Not just Nashville. From Memphis to Nashville was hit hard. Lots of photos of the Millington Navy base being flooded, after Big Creek Levy broke. 1 Trailer park with 300+ mobile homes had 7 feet of water in them. they used tour busses to evacuate the mobile home park. The Navy housing was evacuated. Memphis Mid Town flooded, due to a water pump breaking. Fortunately only 1 loss of life in Memphis...so far. We’ve seen little reports on MS and AR, they had twisters along with the flash flooding. Lives were lost in those states too.

You know, hotdog, I don’t know an awful lot about Tennesee, except that it is among the most beautiful places I have ever seen. I had been there once with my mom when I was about 12 years old. We visited Gatlinburg and Chattanooga.

I enjoyed a place called Rock City where there was a rope bridge high above a canyon as well as a view of some 5 states from one of the mountains. We also walked on the trails of the Smokey mountains, but were scared back to the car by trees that had been shredded by bear claws.

Also had the opportunity to swim in the mountaijn streams there. The water was so cold, but it was so much fun. Except when I almost got sucked over a small waterfall, because I got up in the current. A cliff diver, of all things, came and snatched me up before I got to close to it. After that, we just swam in the pool below this fall while this guy dove into the water from high rocks.

This time in Tennessee was just one of those things that you never forget, because it was just that beautiful. And now to see it as it is brings tears to my eyes.

Please, Lord, no more rain. Help the good people of Tennessee.

Thank you so much for showing me these pictures, even though they are making me very sad.

What I want to know is where is the help rolling out for the citizens of tennessee?

Where is FEMA, where is Obama, where the hell is anyone from the god**** federal government!?

I apologize for my post, but I am outraged. >_<

The DNC Media used Katrina as a weapon to unjustly attack President Bush.

Now they're pretending that this disaster didn't happen.

fighting with city mandatory closing of our businesses

closing all car washes in Nashville saves about 3-4 swimming polls a day in a metro area of 1.6M..cost all washes probably 200-250,000 dollars a day

we are the only business closed...period

not bars, bottlers, linen services, laundromats, cement plants, hair salons, dairies and all other higher usage folks

just us...vilified by the media..Newschannel(5) actually came on our property with the reporter trying to run folks off

a crisis sure brings out the usual self righteous indignation in folks

you would not believe the voice mails I got

if they made it across the board I would understand but they treat us like we are worse than titty bars, pawn shops and liquor stores

The media/liberals don’t care about white people. To them, the only people in need of any special attention are those who aren’t white. If the flooding was in Louisiana or Detroit it would be big news.

Simply horrific. I saw much more than 15 minutes of coverage on the Weather Channel, but I understand the point that the MSM is not making political hay off this for the Democrats as they did with Katrina.

I would like to see a map of how widespread the flooding was. The water looked extremely deep in places, well over 10-feet deep. I wonder how this will compare to Katrina.

Nice reminder that character, culture, spirit and religion all matter. Americans behaving well, vs. scum behaving badly in Katrina.

Culture matters.

The media is silent because the don’t have a Republican to excoriate or a favored victim minority group to exploit for that purpose.

The media only serves its greater agenda anymore. Well, OK, they love a good sex scandal and will turn on any democrat for a good sex scandal. All bets are off over a good sex scandal. Barring that, it is otherwise all about their socialist agenda to enable Soros, Clinton, Obama, & etc.

I heard today on the news they are asking Nashville people to go easy on drinking water so they don’t run out.

Well, I do see up on hot air.com a story about the disaster america ignored, so it looks like it’s starting to come out. Going to drudge is also an excellent start. Beyond that, I would go to abc, cbs, and nbc, shame them, refuse to give them any video or interviews, and tell them that Barack Obama hates white people.

Not kidding about that last one either, because he does, and it is obvious.

Excellent. I believe that the exact same assistance offered by FEMA in new orleans after katrina should be made available to ANYONE affected by this disaster.

To do anything less would not be “fair”, and since the us government is the great guardian of all things fair, it had best make itself available here.

Anything short of that is racism as far as I am concerned.

Thank you Kenny Chesney for standing up for Tennessee! You have to wait through the commercial to see the interview, and footage Kenny took.

I just watched the video. That’s quite the flood you folks are having. I had no idea that it was this big, 52 counties. Well, if there’s anything I can do, don’t hesitate to tell me what.

It’s been a busy and stressful week here for many. Most have no insurance coverage for this, of course, because it’s a “500 year event”. There will be numerous fund-raisers and benefit events. There’s a Facebook page for “Bobby’s Idle Hour” which will probably have details of an event next weekend in which I was invited to participate and other Facebook-type places where information is available. I hope the frauds and hucksters stay away. Those who wish to help should be very careful in choosing the agency through which they send their donations, as always. One’s church or the Salvation Army usually seem to use things more effectively than most.

Thanks for the update, Emmett. Tom asked today how you were doing, and when I explained the video of Nashville's flood, he said it sounded like Noah's Ark. Anyway, I did not hear back regarding your tenant's post on the flood (sounds like you're all very busy); let me know if she'd like it posted here ... or if you'll be putting it up, etc. Prayers for you (and Nashville)!!
