A hurricane has to form before you can name it. Where is the increase of major hurricanes
Six Tropical Storms this year. No hurricanes so far.
I’d be honored to have a hurricane named after me because I refused to drink the AGW koolaid.
So, ... guess we’ll see them name strom after FreeRepublic, Jim Robinsn, Sub-Driver, SandRat, ..... .
Can we name social diseases and such after liberals that can’t keep their minds out of everybody’s underpants? barabara lee of the rectum? patrick leahy of the labia?
I'll never get a hurricane named after me.
Maybe I'll change my name. Aaron Aardvark. Yeah. I like that.
I sort of like the idea. If I was a politician I would fully support this idea.
