John Coleman; founder of The Weather Channel, passed away a couple of days ago at the age of 83.

 

In reading the articles noting his passing, it seems amazingly disrespectful to me that they all seem to start off with the following theme:

 

"Coleman denied "Climate Change!"...as if this were a punishable offense rather than an individual opinion.  His distinguished career as a meteorologist, groundbreaking work as the founder of a unique and innovative cable channel, and his family life are mere secondary footnotes.

 

For a newspaper or magazine to reduce the sum of a person's life to a single opinion he advocated constitutes the height of Bad Taste...something that is all too pervasive in contemporary America.

While hiking I don't fear them. Its when I'm laying down in the tent at night. I assume every little noise is a bear.

The rocky mts in Canada are on my to do list someday, Jasper looks amazing. So far I have a trip to the Maroon bells planned next summer, and torres del Paine or Everst base camp next winter. (If anybody wants to go to Everest, hit me up. I have a small group going)

This should obviously be moved to the other topics thread.  Thats my fault.  So should the rest of snowlovers comments.
 
Snowlover is the same guy that views Alabama as no good....

Moved to this thread cuz I'd rather not get a warning for doing this in that thread.

 

You have to be ignorant to think Alabama isn't good lol. To have won as many championships as they have this decade and say they're not good is like saying this Winter is awesome while looking at brown grass.

I love how people aren't willing to overlook Trump's admittedly thin-skinned personality and instead look at what he's done in just his first year. Trump cares about the individual American citizens looking to pursue a dream. Obama didn't.

And I don't think a wall will be built. That was my one big negative about him after the primaries. If he uses tax money to fund it, there goes his base. Honestly, he shouldn't have brought up the wall idea in the first place during his campaign. I don't think there will be any way of getting out of that mess without losing at least some of his base. Whether it be by not building the wall, or using tax money. I know I'll be pissed if he uses tax money.

Look at what Trump does - he builds things - hotels, resorts, golf courses, etc.  I think it was just a natural reflex reaction to say "we're gonna build a wall" with little thought into what that really meant or how that could realistically happen. Trump shoots at big targets or he doesn't even bother taking aim. I personally will cut him some slack if he made an "oops" wrt his campaign rhetoric about this portion of immigration reform. 

 

Obama was a slick speaker/orator and came across as someone you could admire but his actions were often contrary to many peep's core values. Even most Africans didn't support or approve of his social agenda. Trump's his own worst enemy when it comes to projecting an approvable image, but he genuinely tries to make things happen with good intentions to improve America in traditional ways.

The only sheeple are the ones who oppose Trump. Aka THE SWAMP and the globalist scum who desire a one world govt.

Do you know what drain the swamp actually means? Never mind don't bother answering that. Another classic example of believing what he says vs actually seeing what he does.

 

He's done nothing but remove regulations on Wall Street and other banking institutions. How quickly people forget what happened in the Great Recession.

His cabinet is full of billionaires and Wall Street swamp people who have a wealth 30x more than any other cabinet and then he goes and gives them all the largest tax breaks.

He claims he is going to take on drug prices but then puts a Big Pharma exec in charge who has spent his entire career raising drug prices and ripping people off.

DC lobbying was the highest it's been in 7 years in 2017.

I can go on and on....

The reason why they got the "largest" tax breaks on paper is because they had to pay an insane amount before. EVERYBODY got a tax break. That's a benefit I like to call, "keeping your money."

And I don't think a wall will be built. That was my one big negative about him after the primaries. If he uses tax money to fund it, there goes his base. Honestly, he shouldn't have brought up the wall idea in the first place during his campaign. I don't think there will be any way of getting out of that mess without losing at least some of his base. Whether it be by not building the wall, or using tax money. I know I'll be pissed if he uses tax money.

You're one of the few smart ones apparently. I'm going to have to disagree with you on this. His base will never leave him no matter what. Most of them are like snowlover. They don't care how that stupid thing gets built and who pays for it. Hell I bet snowlover would pay for your portion of the wall. Not to mention most of his base believe that by slapping tariffs, that is how Mexico is going to pay for the wall. All that is going to do is to raise prices on the goods which means we all pay more anyway. Look at what happened to LG. They had a tariff put on their washing machines and promptly raised the prices.

He put a tariff on parts for solar panels and immediately several companies had to respond. One had to put a multi million dollar investment on hold here in the US and another said up to 23k American jobs would be lost because of the tariffs.

I simply don't get how we would get Mexico to pay for it, why he thought saying they would pay for it was a good idea, & why his core supporters believed that they would pay for it. Are we gonna start a war with them or something over it?

 

@ the bolded, most of his supporters are not dumb. They just have differing opinions from you.

You don’t know s**t about politics or the weather it seems. Trump isn’t perfect but he’s better than Hillary would ever be and that’s a fact. The economy is in much better shape now than this time last year and the tax cuts are only going to help.

Liberals love when people have to depend on the govt and hate when hard working people get more money in their paychecks (my last paycheck was $100 more) that’s almost 2,000 dollars more in income just on changing the withholding

I love how people aren't willing to overlook Trump's admittedly thin-skinned personality and instead look at what he's done in just his first year. Trump cares about the individual American citizens looking to pursue a dream. Obama didn't.

Everyone's always going to have their own criteria or standards of what they want in a president. I know I am never going to change your opinion, just like you'll never change mine. ;)

I'm never going to support that racist, bigoted, xenophobic, sexist, p*ssy grabbing, cheating on wife with a porn star and paying money to keep her quiet, inciting violence at his rallies, in bed with Russia, lying more than any president ever, throwing out insults, ignoring the Constitution and normal decency, child of a man, even if I'm making a few more bucks in my 401k. Which by the way it'll be hilarious to watch this bubble burst and what his excuse will be then.

 

That and I disagree with almost all of his policies as a politician too.

 

People can't stop talking about the stock market and 401k, yet the majority of this country have neither. 80% of the stock market is owned by the top 10% richest people. Only about 1/2 of all Americans have stocks. Only about 1/3 of all people in the US have a 401k.

 

It's amazing how quickly people forget how BAD of a situation our country was in economically in 2008, and where we were when he left office. Look at the stock market, unemployment, jobs created, etc. All the things that people want to give him credit for, yet won't do the same for Obama. Trump said he was going to be the greatest job creator ever, yet last year was the lowest number of jobs created in years. People talk about not liking Obama as a person, yet look at what this guy has said and done in the election and now in office. Hell Evangelicals think he should get a mulligan on cheating on his 3rd wife, just months after his child was born. 

 

At any rate, that's all the further I am going to comment on this with you. I always want to keep politics and something I love(weather) separate, but seem to get sucked in on this from time to time. We Nebraska peeps have to stick together when it comes to our weather even if we disagree on politics!

GDP was 1.6% in 2016. 8 years after Obama took office and we are still going to blame Bush?

The point is that the economy wasn’t growing. 1.6% is god awful and the job numbers were pretty meh overall. Wages were not rising either unlike this past year.

Compensation grew to the highest level since 2008

You follow Trump's Twitter account? Dude cries more daily about his unfair treatment, it's pathetic. Poor boy can't take criticism and he's a politician :lol:  :lol:
