RON HART: The real snow job?

Published: Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 04:26 PM.

As with Hurricane Katrina, there was mass confusion because federal, state, county, and city representatives, FEMA, the National Guard, etc. did not communicate or coordinate with each other.  When everyone is in charge, no one is in charge.

Obama has taught other politicians that, as long as you can find someone to blame, you will never be held accountable — if you’re a Democrat.

When individuals subordinate their judgment to government's, bad things happen. NSA, FBI, CIA, the Secret Service, etc., always tell you they are protecting you against what you fear in order to justify their funding. But it seems that, when it's show time, they fail; individuals and citizens working together help each other. Home Depot, Publix and ordinary citizens did more to help and house storm-displaced Atlantans than all government efforts combined.

Clearly, the weather is unpredictable; I don’t blame either politician. Liberal northerners like arrogant Jon Stewart resorted to their Scarlett O’Hara stereotypes and made fun of the South — again. Hey Yankees, bad weather is rare down south; it happens about every 10 years, not even as often as a BCS championship is won by a team north of the Mason-Dixon Line.

They don't believe the Weather Channel because of its documented pro-weather bias. This Atlanta-based channel famously over-reports snow and ice forecasts to the detriment of political news.

There is an app for constant weather updates. It’s called returning your mom’s phone call. Parents can be counted on for weather updates and can explain the difference between sleet and a wintry mix — for hours.

Ever the opportunists, Democrats do what they can to advance their global warming narrative, even during one of the coldest winters in history. Even Al Gore did not know which way to spin this one. They link snow and rain to humans driving cars. Since there is too much carbon dioxide in the air, they will soon ask humans to stop exhaling.
