Response to Original message
141. Not to mention -
- that there are always a hard-core group of people that will refuse to go no matter what. No one is forced to leave their property and go if they don't want to.

A hurricane conspiracy theory? Next thing we'll be hearing is that the GOP now controls the weather and has shifted the moon to influence the tides. Anyone is certainly free to believe it if they really want. But - IMO - anyone thinking such just has wwaayy too much time on their hands and needs to step back from the computer and take a good hard look at reality for a change. :crazy:
