COMMENT: I watched the Forecaster after ordering the DVD from Amazon. Aside from the fact that it brought tears to my and my wife’s eyes, your forecasts on this year being exceptionally cold, your forecast of Brexit, Trump, the Dow and countless other things, it is not hard to see why the government wanted your model. My heating bills have almost doubled this year. How can your computer forecast such a trend years in advance when they can’t do more than 10 days?
Quite frankly, they do not want a system that can do all these things public. That’s why the New York Times or Bloomberg will never even mention what you have accomplished. It is all about keeping the public blind, deaf, and dumb.
God be with you and your family
ANSWER: I do have to admit many people have expressed that view. It has been unbelievably cold. Even airports in Houston and Atlanta have been impacted by snow they do not have equipment for. If people really did listen, it would change politics. You can’t keep up the same nonsense of simply voting for someone and they will change everything. It just cannot be done. They always blame the rich and seek to raise taxes, but it miraculously never manages to lower anyone else’s taxes. It always just lines the pockets of the politicians.
