These weather people cause such madness in the supermarket and in the malls. They are causing a panic they should be ticketed.

Time to get out and do a few more rounds of the Viking Snow Dance. At least until we've got 6" of wonderful winter precipitation on the ground.

Everything you see or hear in the media has a capitalist angle. Everything, even the fake weather reports. We are pawns in the game, and our American society is on the downward side of the bell curve.

No wonder other countries are beating us, when we can't even get an honest weather report from the powers that be.

Why wouldn't I agree, the economy is in the toilet, auto companies are begging for help, the airlines took away my peanuts, Americans elected a socialist, wars all over the world, Blackbeard and the pirates are back strong, everything in my house is made in China, and gay marriage is now normal. Yeah, a bad weather report would really upset me.
