Could We Have The First Named Atlantic Tropical System Of 2016 In January? Jeebus

Yes, I clicked on my Twitter feed and saw a notice from the National Hurricane Center about a subtropical system in the Atlantic Ocean. Arenít these folks supposed to be heading on vacation or to New Orleans for the American Meteorological Society meeting (#AMS2016)? Yet, the graphic below tells the story.

Lawd! The weather is beyond screwed up.

I do believe I perceive a threat to me & others from neo-Confederate mad about the flag coming down.

I weighed in on the ridiculous notion that SC should spend eleventy billion dollars to display the flag that was removed. It was in the comment section of The State paper.
Carl weighed in on my comment. Here is the exchange:
My original comment:
This is too damn much. With all the problems in SC, spending this much money is absurd. There are ways to display the flag that don't cost this much. This is spite and malice because the flag was removed.
Trust me when I say that those who cheered that flag's removal have no idea just what they did - aside from accepting a pro-white supremacist viewpoint that legitimate Confederate heritage defenders rejects.
And don't presume that lowering one flag at a 30 foot pole behind a monument will mean the end of a permanent display of the flag flying over Columbia....you'll know what I mean by next summer.
My reply:
Listen Stonewall, the war is over. The flag is a historic relic that does not represent all of SC.Nobody is telling you that you can't display it. They are saying that on state grounds that belong to everyone, it should not be flown as a symbol for the state. I have several ancestors that died for the Confederacy. I have no desire to canonize them.
As far as white supremacy, you can deny it all you want. However, it is used as a symbol for that movement. You may not think so but that is a fact.
As far as your veiled staement about 'you'll know what I mean' about some coming event, are you gonna burn the city again? Graffiti? Tantrums? A 1000 ft flagpole flying the flag? The mind reels.
When the war was over, Robert E.Lee said this ""Abandon your animosities and make your sons Americans."
He didn't say nurse your grievances and never stop fighting. I'll defer to him.

So, I believe that is a threat of some action. I'm sure my name zoomed to the top of whatever list they keep. Meh. Bullies and cowards.

Trump may have gone one bluster too far.

When his spokesperson mused about using atomic weapons, I think alarm bells went off in a lot of places. There are already grumblings in the Pentagon.

Trump has said many things that cross the lines of decency. The nuclear remark is a whole other level. Just having somebody like him in the White House would ratchet up tension enormously around the world. For all the complaints about PBO, he was not considered someone likely to go off half-cocked.

The PTB are going to get to him one way or another. They want the world destroyed slowly so they can make money. I doubt they are thrilled with the thought of nuclear annihilation.
