1. It might be just another way to silence anyone who talks about climate change.

With fewer staff and less research, they are reduced to the basics.

8. ... unless they GET RICH from it

19. No, I acknowledge that we pay taxes for it. but even those who pay no taxes because they

12. Like I keep saying - who needs terrorists when you have the Heritage Foundation?

That's their mantra - cut, cut, cut, then take the money and run.

10. Reagan wanted to do away with the National Weather bureau. When asked how people would know

when storms were coming, he replied that they could get it from the television.

15. Reagan was the catalyst

for this line of thinking that government is the problem. The right won't care because they are government jobs.

11. Anything which actually helps people in this WH is

an anathema to it unless it brings in money to the big donors' coffers.

13. Valentine love to NOAA

And every day.
We live in a rural area and depend on NOAA. It's an amazing, accurate service without all the scary hype of TV weather. Just the facts.
NOAA, we LOVE you!
