Obama4Life: Fail in Human Form: s1ugg0: This really is unacceptable. When you consider all the named storms that hit the United States each year and the damage they cause to property and commerce.Why in god's name is predicting these storms not a top priority for our government?Why have the government do it when they can contract it out at twice the price?So are we going to start have storms named Habib or Raj?
Wizzin: Our only chance is to make Congress believe that terrorists are responsible for the weather.
buzzcut73: BolivarShagnasty: This would never have happened if Santorum could privatize weather forecasting and defunding NOAA like he wanted.The only conclusion I could come up with when he was talking about that is that Santorum is an idiot.All of those private forecasting companies (TWC, your local news channel, etc) use the government satellite pictures and radar to come up with their predictions (which aren't usually any better or worse than what NOAA comes up with...because they all use the same data!)
