Lawmaker proposes bill to censor National Weather Service website

OK, this is rich. A congressman from Pennsylvania, is proposing a law which would cut the NWS site off at the knees. Keep in mind that the NWS is paid for by our tax dollars, and it's a very good place to get weather info., one of the best. Pilots and sailors use it for life and death information.

Although it costs nothing to view, the cost is automatically included in your federal income tax. We all pay for it.

Why would he want to do that, you might ask.

Well, the reason he wants to do this is because his home state (Penn.), has around a dozen "paid" weather services, and they are lobbying him to shut down the "free" NWS site because it is so good, they can't compete with it, even though we have already bought and paid for it.

I know what I think about this. What do you think?

I find it shocking that there are politicians out there with personal agendas.

My opinion on it is, what do you expect? The corrupt are running the country.

Jamie, the corrupt are not running our country, but they sure as hell are giving it their best shot.

We will see how that works out for them. In the meantime, keep thinking. Ritchie

I disagree. Have you been keeping tabs on the current administration? Our often missing, partially illiterate president and his war for oil..uhh..avenging his daddy..uhh WMDs. Yeah, thats it, WMDs.

Please don't take me as a sissy left wing liberal. I am certainly not. I just am disappointed in the direction this country is going.
