Just a joke everyone.. or is it?

It is sad to notice that the most truthful person on the TV news these days..... is the weatherman.

That depends on who you talk to. I'm sure you must have heard the all the weather conspiracy theories such as the temperatures, etc are being faked to pretend that there is an upward trend in global temperatures.

These days "truth" is about having what you want to believe reflected back to you, rather than having the inconvenience of facts that may conflict with that view.

I see this thread going off the rails in the not too distant future.

I see this thread going off the rails in the not too distant future.

as someone that has been under curfew and heard sirens the last few days. I can see it happening.

The last one...two miles from home.  All of these little communites run together.
Like a small town. A lot of people know a lot of people and have interacted with them. I did not have that kid in my district, but entirely possible i have seen him or parents at the local Target.  (yes, you cannot swing a dead cat in this town without hitting a target)

And yes, the weather person is the only one you can trust.



You can't phase me-I teach Middle School.

You and many others, not just your town, see this garbage and the likes every day. Your "government" fails you...implicitly. All I can say is "get out".

I sure don't trust TV weather people when they put up their map with the expected rainfall amounts.  The higher the amounts are, the more likely they will NOT turn out true, especially for your city.
