#isaac -The Weather Channel refers to Mississippi as “the land mass between New Orleans and Mobile”
Y'all Politics ^ | August 27, 2012

Posted on 08/27/2012 11:32:06 PM PDT by dixiechick2000

During it's Isaac coverage, the Weather Channel on Sunday referred repeatedly to Mississippi as the "landmass between New Orleans and Mobile".

Not to be outdone, a regular YP fan created a facebook page that has over 22,000 likes in less than 24 hours.

The one thing that I know about us Landmassians is that, in times of adversity, we pull up our bootstraps, start a Face Book page, and open a web store sellin’ T-shirts. lol

First, they forgot about MS during Katrina.

That's because the good, self-reliant people of overwhelmingly-Christian and Conservative Mississippi didn't pillage and riot like Holder's People in the New Orleans Ninth Ward. Plus Mississippians prudently voted good people into office unlike the fool Ray Nagin, Mayor of Chocolate City, and their imbecilic governor Kathleen Blanco.

NOW...MS is just a landmass?

Well, consider the source. The Weather Channel is part of the enemy media, NBC. Along with their web presence on weather.com, their extreme left agenda is comprised of pushing the myth of global warming and ginning up lies about the effect of coal on the so-called "environment". Their forecasts are notable for inaccuracy (WeatherBell, co-founded by the great Joe Bastardi is infinitely better) and hype. It's not surprising that the Obama-heads at the Weather Channel so readily dismiss the wonderful state of Mississippi. I sent a courtesy ping to onyx who knows of my deep admiration for the Magnolia State and her wonderful people, including a number of friends my college days now living there and doing God's Work as preachers. Frankly, being overlooked by the Weather Channel is a feather in the cap of Mississippi!

On a related note, in my totally NON-EXPERT but Totally Optimistic OPINION, it appears that Isaac is falling apart.

Jim Cantore at 8 PM last night on Twitter. Interesting choice of words: “I have to admit the satellite impression of #Isaac is not one of a rapidly developing storm.”

Say what you will about Fox’s Shepherd Smith, a MS native, but he had great vindictive fun with this tonight. He tore the Weather Channel a new one. I don’t think they’ll forget the name of that “Landmass” very soon.

Do you know the one thing that perplexes me?

“They” seem to think that there aren’t any blacks in Mississippi, or that they all live in the northern half of the state.

Maybe they didn’t/don’t care about them because they aren’t inner city?

I just don’t get it.

You came to help after Katrina? God bless you!

I live 2,500 miles away from MS. (I’m preparing to move back part time) However, for at least five years, every time I flew in and out of Jackson, there were groups...mostly kids...who gave up a lot to travel as far as they did just to make a 3.5 hour drive down to the coast to help rebuild.

I don’t think they went through JAX because they have FNC on the TV, and fresh flowers in the bathrooms, though that’s what attracted me. ;o)

We were so blessed by all of you to be so unselfish as to give up your time and treasure to help out your fellow man. Thank you!

I’ve never been so proud of this country in my life.*

*different meaning from MO’s. ;o)

Who says we are dumb. We have a web store. lol

I don’t like Shep much, but he is a Mississippi native, and he’s proud of it.

If it weren’t for him, I don’t think the public would have known one 100th of the news of the devastation that Katrina caused in MS.

My prayers are with you, and with all who are in the storm’s path.

I know you will be hit harder than my family will be, but I don’t believe it will be as bad as Katrina.

Thanking God for that!

That’s good news!

I saw somewhere else that Cantore tweeted that MS will never be forgotten, but wasn’t able to find it on his twitter feed.

That’s what makes this hard to stomach.

They forgot MS during and after Katrina, and now we’re just a land mass.

Thank GOD for that indeed! What is worse than the storm is the over the top rhetoric by all weather outlets. Weather Channel said last night (Julie somebody) that they didn't see how the Republicans could celebrate their convention while New Orleans was being hit on the 7th anniversary of Katrina. Then they mentioned Bush and his “mishandling” of that self inflicted wound (blanco, nagin and landreau). Locally they want it because the local station won awards for their coverage and they are hungry for more accolades.

Is there some old MS/LA dispute we’re supposed to remember, kind of like Hussein’s “Maldives” when he should have said Malvinas, when he wanted to show support for anyone who was against England?

We heard a lot about New Orleans being under 10 to 15 feet of water. We heard little about the greatest storm surge in American history hitting the Landmass Gulf Coast. Some estimates say that Waveland, Landmass was under more than 30 feet of water. (That’s three stories, folks.) The Landmass Gulf Coast was obliterated. My sister had just moved one month earlier to a place only a block from the beach in Gulfport, Landmass. There was nothing left above ground level at her place after the storm passed.

The storm surge at Waveland in 2005 broke the old American record from 1969 when Hurricane Camille struck the Landmass Gulf Coast with a 25 foot storm surge.

I'm east of you, in the Florida Panhandle (Fort Walton Beach). I think Isaac has blown itself out. I'm a county utility worker and we've been preparing since last week. It may be that we'll have an easy go of it.... this time at least. Hope you have gentle winds and light rain.

Marshall Ramsay had a good program about how the MSM ignored Mississippi’s experience with Katrina. He stated an experience during a reporter’s forum he had up North where college kids didn’t even know Katrina hit Mississippi. TWC has become a joke of what it started up to be.
