You call this a storm?

Hurricane Irma is now bigger than the state of Ohio.  A Cleveland weatherman created this graphic:






Now for the real picture:

So glad Trump is in office, this is going to be the biggest, most beautiful hurricane ever.

I'd like to take a moment to Jab some really hateful people that hide behind the banner of Christianity:
Seeing as how global climate change is part of a communist hoax in your view, and that God is using hurricanes to Purge the sin from evil places: "God" may direct this motherf--ker straight towards Mar-A-Lago to purge the sin in and around Palm Beach.

Maybe it wont' move into the Gulf as predicted, but the path keeps generally shifting to the west. Then again, there's another system already building in the Bay of Campeche, plus Jose was named today, coming in after Irma. I ain't no meteorologist and try not to speculate, but this is getting scarey.

@2:46 Climate change is a fact. It's just not man-made. The climate is always changing.

Anonymous said...

The climate does change..........it gets hot, then turns cold, hurricanes form, so do winter storms. Weather patterns are cyclical, and they always have been. To think that all of sudden the climate has changed due to human activity is a fools errand. Those 'climate change' nutjobs need to go back and study history, and they will find the same types of weather events have occurred since records started being kept.

Science says you are partly wrong.

It's getting hotter.

Science also says you are partly correct.

Man isn't the sole proximate cause of weather change.

What does science tell us about what man may have done to usher in hotter weather?

Says lots of what we do is harmful.....

We need to figure out a way to do it without killing economies.

I'm fed up with rebuilding coastal housing every 5 years with my TAX DOLLARS.
Let people who live on the coast take full responsibility for any/all damages if they want to live there!

No political statements in this post. No prejudiced statements. No right or left wing statements.

My prayers are for the folks in the path of this storm. I pray for their safety and survival.

My God protect all of us.

Inverse of partly correct is partly incorrect. Your usage of 'wrong', instead, tells us all we need to know.

The only thing worse than the Coast is Jackson. Everyone should live Madison. We've got the best Burger King in Mississippi.

Anonymous said...

4:25 - Yeah, right. Your tax dollars help rebuild the coast. Hope you are not living North of Interstate 10 in Mississippi. Most of the money this state generates is generated on the coast. It is North Mississippi that benefits from the Casino's, Shipbuilding and Military. Bet you pay $2,000-$3,000 a year in taxes or you get a refund.

Burger King is a disgraceful dump in Madison and we would love it gone. Mary is counting the days until she can retire and move to Natchez. Look at the retail and restaurants she has brought in over the past seven years. As her parting gift, she has given us Burger King II which is actually Taco Bell and now the new Hotty Lobby and Academy. Her crowing glory will be leaving town with all this cheap shit on the books.

Madison Is For Sale - We Are Canton II with Spires and golden bricks.

4:25 After a disaster government rebuilds government. After a hurricane insurance or loans rebuild for people.

Then the usage should have been 'wrong' and 'right'. You lack precision.

2:52. Pot calling the kettle black... If hurricane does hit "mf Mar-A-Lago" BET Trump has insurance and rebuilds!

At least Jose won't be a problem. Trump won't let him into the country.

It's amazing how many people rely on politicians instead of scientists to make up their minds on climate change. I just don't understand why this is a political issue. It is known that CO2 traps heat. It is known that CO2 levels in the Earth's atmosphere have never been over 300ppm in the last 650 thousand years and are presently over 400ppm and rising. The oceans are absorbing the extra CO2 making them more acidic. The rising temperatures are melting the ice caps and the ocean levels are rising at an increasing rate. Of the last 16 years, 15 of those have been the hottest on record. What part of this has any politician explained so well that you would take their word over scientists? The longer we don't accept science, the further our country is going to fall behind all the countries who prepare their economies to deal with these changes.

It's pretty amazing that the liberal scientists have even infiltrated the oil companies to change their stance on climate change. Explain that. Once again, it's not a liberal/conservative issue. It's science vs. science deniers. There's only 2 explanations I can come up with: 1.) ignorance is bliss 2.) You believe Al Gore will get credit if you admit the science is real and you're willing to put the future of mankind at risk because of it. How pathetic.

Y'all can worry all day about man-made climate change, but there is only one Being who has any control over this planet and what happens with it:

"Yet what we suffer now is nothing compared to the glory he will reveal to us later. For all creation is waiting eagerly for that future day when God will reveal who his children really are. Against its will, all creation was subjected to God’s curse. But with eager hope, the creation looks forward to the day when it will join God’s children in glorious freedom from death and decay. For we know that all creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time."

Romans 8:18-22
https://www.bible.com/bible/116/ROM.8.18-22

"Most importantly, I want to remind you that in the last days scoffers will come, mocking the truth and following their own desires. They will say, “What happened to the promise that Jesus is coming again? From before the times of our ancestors, everything has remained the same since the world was first created.” They deliberately forget that God made the heavens long ago by the word of his command, and he brought the earth out from the water and surrounded it with water. Then he used the water to destroy the ancient world with a mighty flood. And by the same word, the present heavens and earth have been stored up for fire. They are being kept for the day of judgment, when ungodly people will be destroyed. But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day. The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent. But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment. Since everything around us is going to be destroyed like this, what holy and godly lives you should live, looking forward to the day of God and hurrying it along. On that day, he will set the heavens on fire, and the elements will melt away in the flames. But we are looking forward to the new heavens and new earth he has promised, a world filled with God’s righteousness. And so, dear friends, while you are waiting for these things to happen, make every effort to be found living peaceful lives that are pure and blameless in his sight. And remember, our Lord’s patience gives people time to be saved. This is what our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you with the wisdom God gave him— speaking of these things in all of his letters. Some of his comments are hard to understand, and those who are ignorant and unstable have twisted his letters to mean something quite different, just as they do with other parts of Scripture. And this will result in their destruction."

Keep using religion to explain your own ignorance. Just throw up your hands and say that's just how God wants it. Meanwhile I'll put my hope in scientists that can hopefully figure out a way to reverse all the harm that has been caused to our planet. I don't see anything relevant in your scripture unless you think the current wildfires in Idaho, Washington, Oregon, Montana, Colorado and California are actually the apocalypse and you have given up hope for humanity? Grow a pair and accept responsibility for your own actions.

Read your comment back to yourself and understand that you are just merely projecting yourself onto other, anonymous, people.

Religion doesn't explain ignorance.

And you put your hope in individuals who have openly admitted to altering and falsifying data to fit their goals. They are not scientists. Proving a theory requires the ability to accept disproving it.

If you really think that the climate has changed due to people, perhaps you are OK with you and your family being part of the solution. Perhaps you, in your indignant condescension, failed to realize that the human population has exploded.

See if you can follow. "Scientists", that you worship, say that the total number of humans to have ever lived on earth is a little over 100 Billion. Currently over 7 Billion are alive and reside on earth. In the thousands upon thousands of years humans have inhabited earth, we currently have 7% of the entire number of people who have ever lived on earth, living right now.

China and India, combined, have more people right now than the entire world population in 1930s-40s.

Your "scientists" attempted to coordinate temperature data to this population hockey stick but had to manipulate the data in order to do so. This was presented as science and when tested, found to be falsified.

If that is too big for you to comprehend, then realize simply, that the climate has had much more dramatic changes in the past when there were far, far fewer human beings.

@9:16
Our global use of CFC's so totally DO NOT deplete the the very fragile ozone layer. The seas are not warmer, and they are not rising due to
polar ice caps melting which also changes the salinity of the ocean thus not affecting "life in the sea". Also, the northern lights will not be viewable in the lower 48 pretty soon.

When the fragile ozone layer is completely gone, we will so totally be okay.

Anonymous said...

You're probably right. It's all a big hoax caused by those scary democrats. Every scientist in the world is in on it. Even the oil companies. Get your head out of the sand. The more people like you spread this crap you hear on Fox News as fact, the longer it's going to take for us to do something meaningful to fix the issue and the worse our country will be for it. Also, I don't worship scientists, I respect their pursuit of knowledge to advance mankind. I still haven't seen any factual points of disagreement. Do you deny that the levels of CO2 are what they are measured to be? Do you deny that greenhouse gases in our atmosphere trap heat? Do you deny the wide scale corral bleaching? Do you deny the ice caps are losing mass? Which part of this specifically do you you believe is a lie? Call me crazy, but I'd rather listen to NASA than a preacher regarding science.

@4:52, thank you. If we can't escape loss of property--both private and public--I pray we at least escape loss of life. And for those who think all of this applies only to high risk coastal areas, you are incorrect. Tornados and inland flooding are some of the deadliest aspects of hurricanes. Camille obliterated the Mississippi Gulf Coast but killed far more people inland in East Coast states with flash flooding and landslides. And those of you in inland Mississippi probably had more than a few insurance claims to file after your roofs lost shingles and trees fell on your homes during Katrina, not to mention losing the contents of your fridge and freezer when you were also without power. From south of I-10, thank you again for your prayers.

Fish - let me make a suggestion to improve your site.

Take all the commentators here that want to profess their infinity knowledge of science and religion - as it relates to the climate and related weather phenom, on either side - and move them to another place on the site. That way we can talk about the incoming storm without having to scroll pass their dribble and incomprehensible crap - repeating of what they have been told, or read somewhere, about the doom and gloom of climate change or the fake science related to climate change.

If you want to create a post from folks that have educated and proven science on climate change, these folks can come back on and ask questions, maybe even express their uneducated positions for criticism. Until then, it will save the rest of us from their crap

Irma will hit Florida-probably at cat. 5 status. South/SE Florida will get slammed, maybe this weekend.

If it doesn't weaken over Cuba, then Miami will be devastated. This storm is so strong that the rules of the category system may need to be re-written.

Right behind that is hurricane Jose; it will likely get stronger if it comes into contact with warm tropical waters associated with the area in the Gulf of Mexico and outward. Trajectory unknown but one would hope that it goes back out into the Atlantic.

If not, likely to follow same basic path as Irma----Or it could actually come into the Gulf of Mexico proper and wreak havoc on the Florida panhandle, Alabama, Mississippi, or Louisiana.

No religion or politics, just speculation on what is already known.

The majority of our weather is caused by the Sun and its effect on our oceans. I guess the tree huggers want to raise enough global warm taxes so they can send a massive iceberg into the sun to cool it down. I just came up with the theme of the next big Hollywood blockbuster.

To anyone who does not believe climate change is a real threat, please watch on Netflix "Chasing Coral " that will make you see it is an emergency. Many coral reefs around the world that produce fish stocks are disappearing with warmer seas. A third of the Great Barrier Reef is already bleached and dead. The food supply is being affected. Donald Trump is a climate liar.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
