Hmmm. It seems Hurricane Irene didn’t behave as predicted by the weather specialists. You know, the “scientists” we’re crazy not to believe like the Gospel.
The Washington Post quotes National Hurricane Center senior forecaster Richard Pasch as saying “People see that and assume we can predict everything.” He also expressed frustration that people “take our forecasts verbatim.”
So when it comes to unsupported claims based on fudged computer models about what is supposed to happen with the climate in 100 years or 300 years, we’re supposed to eagerly and joyfully surrender up our freedom and our property to stop a hypothetical climate apocalypse?
But when it comes to what is supposed to happen in the next 24 to 72 hours, we’re not supposed to take that too seriously?

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
