    All this makes me even more to enjoy living in Poland.
    Year after year the saying: "United States is the wealthiest Third World country" is becomes more and more relevant.

    My birds got proportionally louder as I turned this up to hear over them. Either they really hate the sound of John’s voice or they recognize their own kind and were trying to communicate.

    Remember when England named the snow storm beast from the east. It wasn’t a proper storm but snow!!!! ❄️ ⛄️

    It's really impressive that this guy can get nearly 5 million people (at the time of writing) to click on a video called 'Weather'

  • AbstractAudition

    I cant tell 'weather' or not thisl matter when we are all hiding on the mountain tops because a bunch of do-nothing fkwits melted the ice caps for fun.

    The way the Myers talk about some town's people getting killed like they were nothing. Or getting European meteorological data, which saved US American lives, as bad is just chilling. They clearly see their business and money above human lives or as service to their countrymen.

    You want a fuck knuckle that does the weather? Try Tim Bailey in Australia. He is not a meteorologist. He's just some self important "Do you know who I am?" wanker. If he says it's raining outside and it is raining? I'll put on my sunscreen and give my umbrella to the garbage chute. Weird thing is, this guy is every type of c()nt, but CNN (The recent owners of Channel 10 in Australia), are letting him get away with 20 years of being a cunt.
    And yes I know, CNN owns an Aussie TV network, but they beat Murdoch's son out of it. That's a good thing.

    So, the United States relies on an organisation called NOOA for it's weather? I suppose it makes sense, since in the bible Noah was the only one who knew that a world-destroying flood was coming, and was able to prepare for it.

    The way Oliver worship government and his efforts in promoting bigger government intervention / function in people's lives is scary to behold. This is outright Communism. Capitalism value individuality and personal responsibility much more.

    Fuck AccuWeather

    Important forecasts that are beneficial to the general public is something that should never cost anyone a dime to figure out. It's appalling.

    Watch Force Thirteen instead if you need in your face graphics packages that tell you what the weather will be.

    If you’re wondering, literally every decision DT makes is designed to harm the United States. Sabotage is not just a song by AC/DC .

      No, I don't think he is inherently seeking to harm the US or anyone specifically. He's just looking to line his own pockets and those of his supporters and friends which has the side effect of harming everybody else.

      He’s a nationalist, why would he try to harm the United States? Why is harming the USA considered the worlds highest evil?
