    Been there done that.

    Reliving memories.
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Gotta love all of this media coverage where they spend all day telling us where the storm will be 3 days from now, only to change it later, and tell us just as authoritatively about the new forecast. These "models" they use are crap. Give a monkey a crayon and let them draw, it could be just as accurate. Seems that the first model from several days ago had it missing Florida on the east coast and hitting the Carolinas.

    These are some of the same people who tell us about man-made climate change. They have "models".

    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.

    So I guess the Donald has to donate another million, right? Otherwise, Florida will get jealous.

    Of course, with his track record, he may just dump Texas and give the ring to the prettier state.

    Wind speed dropped considerably, but so did its speed over ground: going to linger more (more rain as well).
    "The program of liberalism, ...if condensed into a single word, would have to read: property..."

    -Ludwig von Mises

    "Patriotism, not nationalism, should inspire the citizen. The ethnic nationalist who wants a linguistically and culturally uniform nation is akin to the racist who is intolerant toward those who look (and behave) differently. The patriot is a "diversitarian"; he is pleased, indeed proud of the variety within the borders of his country; he looks for loyalty from all citizens. And he looks up and down, not left and right."

    -Erik Maria Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

    "All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre ó the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

    It has finally 'lifted' off the Cuban coast moving ever so slightly North.. not much..
    still seeing a LOT of sweeping Westerly wind currents on the Ventusky computer model
    but
    it depends on what altitude you look at.
    Try switching the above link (which is at 1500 meters) to max. 12,000 meters (3.5 mi.)... different story.

    Those in the path you may want to download the Zello PTT Walkie Talkie app. If your cell service goes down you can still communicate with others who have it. It's what rescuers used here in Houston during the flooding.

    Was it just yesterday they were saying on TV it would still be a Cat 2 going through Georgia? Looks like they have changed that prediction.

    Yeah the same science that is trying so desperately to make everyone believe in man-made climate change.

    Trump's properties contribute a lot to Florida. Liquor taxes are high on both the buying and selling side. There is also a manditory resort fee, which is really nothing more than a tax.

    Smart people should be fine.

    My brother just posted 70+ winds at nine.. and the storm will steadily decline from here.
    Lots of rain,, but they have that and deal with it well.

    well.. it's 2am.. there were a couple of power blips between 10 and 11 tonight. So far.. it's been a windy rainy night - haven't seen the woods out back yet but didn't hear any trees falling and with any luck, the radar looks like in about 20 minutes there might be enough of a break in the rain to take the poor little dog that's crossing her legs out for a quick squirt.. she wants to go until we open the door.. then the wind noise.. the frog chorus and the downpour sounds run her right back under a table.
    Disclaimer: any post made after midnight and before 8AM is made before the coffee dip stick has come up to optomim level - expect some level of silliness,

    The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are out numbered by those who vote for a living !!!!!!!
