A test of control, you go there, you stay here.
Tell everyone what to do, when and how.

Just out of curiosity after checking the weather forecast in my own town on Friday morning, I looked up the forecast for a bunch of towns I've been to along the East Coast.

Over and over, I'd see 30-65 Kilometer winds, and maybe a few inches of rain. I checked Atlantic City, Myrtle Beach, Wilmington Delaware, Atlantic City, Virginia Beach, Norfolk and a bunch of others. Nothing that forecast more than a somewhat bad storm but nothing worse than what we had in Ontario last week.

I checked US sites after that, then came across Steven Goddard's blog that covered the same thing in more detail. So I started to wonder: WHY the hype? And came up with a few theories.

- Media hype - slow news, ratings, covering up Libya or burying some other news
- An excuse to temporarily boost consumer spending
- An excuse for any future lousy GDP number

As for the over-the-top fearmongering in NYC:

- Bloomberg being a dictator
- Real flooding risk to lower Manhatten and few ways out
- Preparation for false flag
- Cover story for real terrorist threat
- Stock market - keep the traders home - either a bad crash, or with maybe the ECB planning some bailout, an epic rally.

Who knows... But all the hype does is make it worse when the next genuinely bad storm comes and people will be too complacent about a Category 5 or something that's a real danger.

Some one mention about the servers on wall st and subway service not being ready? They said at 10pm on the evening news the mta will have all subways up and running by 6am. And even if wall st were to be flooded, they have an exact replica of the wall st trading floor at an undisclosed location in the midwest, ready at the drop of a hat to take over should nyc go down.

In case anyone missed it, one news report happened to report that FEMA was already buying up a bunch of the devestated, abandoned property in New Jersey. Hmmm, they sure didn't waste any time! Were they drooling over this opportunity as they watched Irene's destructive path. And come to think about evacuations, ....I'm thinking back to Katrina...... what ever happened to all those displaced people? There are still a lot of people that STILL haven't heard from family members.

Hmmm? I think it's up to 8 dead now. Some areas have had over a foot of rain and expecting up to twenty inches along with the floods that follow. Some areas already super saturated by the rains over the last few weeks. Entire sections of beach already washed away.

You folks on drugs or what?

How do you know 8 people are dead and entire sections of beach washed away? Just because people are telling you that? You believe it? Obviously this is all some big ruse setup completely by Obama so that he could um... uh... something socialism, Marxist, blah blah blah.

I am telling you people. You are either going to vote for him again or he will use more powerful magic. This is the most powerful man the world has ever seen. Even Bush could not create a hurricane, all he could do was steer one.
This place is too funny these days.

I decided to wait a couple of days to respond. Death Toll is now over 40 and the damage is mounting as the rivers are cresting.

Paranoia and anger at that level are not only not normal, it poses a risk to you and others.

Or are you trying to scare people into voting for Obama for some crazy reason? Might work on a few people too young to vote or residing in an institution.

You really need to have your sarcasm meter checked. Or perhaps read all my other posts in this thread to gain some context. If you are trying to tell me this was actually a really bad thing that happened and not just a trick by Obama to get votes, Yes I know that. I live on the East coast. The hurricane was not made up by Obama. It really happened. I am glad you agree albeit unknowingly apparently.
