Just as they fail in its forecasts, so we - in our expectations. Perfect fit, isn't it?

The weather surprises us positively sometimes but it's not the case with any governments!
That's why the weather is not always in the wrong, but the government is always in the wrong.

This is true.

Statistically wrong facts do not cease to exist, either because they are unpleasant or because they are ignored.

Anxious just a thought on this, comes to mind our constitution which in the first lines says that all men are created igual(not perfect).

Completely disagree
What injustice!

The worst weather on the planet will never be more wrong than any government, especially our governments.
The best government in the world will always be worse than the worst weather on earth.
Jerome is being very generous with governments in this comparison.

Summer will come... but it will be enveloped in the Great Depression II due to the world's largest credit bubble popping.

Government isn't "wrong" from the perspective of the Debt Money Power that runs it to exploit, manipulate and control the general population.

It is so elementary - anyone who lends money into existence does so to solidify their interests... at least what they perceive as their interests.

Money that is lent into existence is prima fascie fraud.

Impoverishing society's is their main tool for manipulating populations (look around the planet Earth and it will eventually come to you...)

However dependence on the weather/government is inevitable irrespective of one's liking or disliking!

“What you need,” once remarked a doctor to his patient, “is a change of climate.”

“Change of climate!” cried the man. “That’s what’s the matter with me. If the climate would only keep the same a few days running I would be all right.”

There are four seasons and many different needs of people; no government can do everything for everyone.

Before we really get going on the subject of government, this quotation from "Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow" 1886, is about
how neither weather nor governments will ever do well enough by some of us.

Quote: "It always is wretched weather according to us. The weather is like the government — always in the wrong. In summer-time we say it is stifling; in winter that it is killing; in spring and autumn we find fault with it for being neither one thing nor the other and wish it would make up its mind...We shall never be content until each man makes his own weather and keeps it to himself." End

The populace is as fickle as the weather - voting in governments and then complaining about what they do.
