Arrow It's big business

HC - I know where your coming from. But the Weather Channel and their people do their best to warn the people of possible harm. It's a bit dramatic I'm sure at times for each person has their agenda's on how they want to position themselves for the best action results. It's sorta like tornado chasers. Many folks like watching that crap. After its over they wait for the next big event to show up and the drama continues. Their sponsors pour their money into them in hopes to generate more sales. The real cost is to the folks in those areas who loose almost everything and sometimes their lives.

The media knows how to build up the drama and the weather channels get their subsidies to make a profit and payroll and their sponsors get more sales. Notice all the generator adds that were on. GENTEC for power outages. Start at $1995.00 (note for a very small generator). Yea right get a quote and see the cost - I got a quote for my whole house and garage - I almost fell over 30K or more with installation. Shocker for sure but if I had the money I may get one but most of us don't have those dollars. A whole new separate control box is needed and it didn't cover installation.


O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
