House Directs Pentagon To Ignore Climate Change

House Directs Pentagon To Ignore Climate Change

Commented May 24, 2014 at 12:59:33 in Politics

“Frankly, the denial of climate change won't go down in history at all, unless the cockroaches evolve to write history. There aren't likely to be any historians (or anyone else) left once land masses shrink, food and water get scarce, farmland turns to desert and deserts turn to wetlands, and someone gets mad enough to launch a nuclear weapon.”

“You never know. Such a person might start a war of choice, against a country that didn't attack us, using a false reason. . .oh, right. That was done by a president who really did believe in a higher power.”

“I believe it was John D. Rockefeller (or one of the other robber barons) who observed that having a lot of wealth made him "more Christlike." Yes, they DO believe they're better than us.”

“Obviously, no one can cite precedent for today, because by definition precedent happened in the past. (Oh, and it's "precedent", not "precedence".) You would do well to study the terms and their meanings, and also to review the meaning of "tautology", along with descriptions of how informative tautologies are.”

“Ted Cruz certainly does want to turn the country around, and march it right back to 1898. Ah, the good old days . . .child labor, Jim Crow, robber barons, a boom-and-bust economy . . .the past is the future for ol' Teddy. But I don't get why he's so whiny! Look at that picture -- it should be captioned, "Poor, poor, pitiful me." Am I the only person who thinks he sounds like my dog under the dining table?”

“So how does wanting our gov't to be responsible and stand for something make him a bad guy? Because he doesn't think everyone should be on food stamps and disability, but should work instead?”

“Let's see. How many of the conservatives on the Supreme Court are supposedly Catholics?”

“"supposedly" is the key word. "Fakes" is the real word.”

“Yes. Ted Cruz is my hero. He actually said that it is critical to defund Obamacare, because once it is fully implemented, Americans will never get rid of it. In other words, Americans will like it -- and it is the mission of Ted Cruz and the Tea Party to be sure Americans do not get anything they will like, such as health care, a decent economy, reasonable gun safety and protection from predatory capitalism. No, Ted Cruz knows that a population that gets what it wants is a dangerous population -- because that population sure as hell doesn't want Ted Cruz.”

“To bad we can't de-fund the Republican party and fully get rid of them instead.”

“There's nothing I love more than a Republican who wants to "defend principles" and not "hold on to power". I hope he sticks to defending his conservative principles of limited government (for corporations, churches, capital and gun sellers) and intrusive government (for everyone else). Let them give their power to the Democrats, whose principles most Americans share: compassion and a government that works on behalf of biological people -- protecting them from predators and leaving them alone if they aren't hurting anyone.”

“Saul Alinsky is the inspiration for Newt Gingrich's entire approach to politics. He mentions Alinsky often because the name sounds Jewish and foreign, so he likes to associate his enemies with Alinsky. But he relies on Alinsky's techniques as steadfastly as religious people rely on prayer.”

“Right. If I want to kill someone in Florida, I just take my gun and pick a fight with them when they're unarmed. Then I shoot them and say I was "in fear of my life" and just "standing my ground". What a great way to legalize murder. Is Florida a great state, or what?”

rksnj67 on Jul 15, 2013 at 17:15:27

“Just make sure you don't miss. If you do, Florida will sentence you to 20 years. This is one truly nondiscriminatory law that Florida has. There are people of all races who are doing 20 for either missing their target or trying to scare off an attacker with warning shots. If they had killed their attackers instead, they would be free today. What a bass ackwards state!!!”

“Most distressing is that Rogoff and Reinhart have not corrected the record. Their flawed research has fostered and encouraged policies that have caused real people to be laid off, to lose health insurance, to die, to despair and to commit suicide. This isn't confined to the ivory tower; Rogoff and Reinhart's academic sloppiness has cost lives. For them to be so quiet about its wrongness, when they were so loud about its rightness, is shameful.”
