November 12, 2015

To those in the fact free zone,  remedial science would seem like a prison, indeed.

Another Doctor who is no Rocket Scientist.

  1. Meanwhile, in the real world:

    Kentuky – America’s poorest white town: abandoned by coal, swallowed by drugs

    Rand Paul is far removed from reality.

      Very sad. Of course many of the folks there blame the mess on Obama’s “War on White People” and don’t think the Democrats EVER cared about folks like them (especially ones like FDR and LBJ), so they’re going to vote for those Republicans who want to take more from them and give it to the 1%, thereby “improving” their lives. Good thinking, Kentucky folks—-keep voting for McConnell and Rand Paul.

    Here’s Paul’s answer to a climate change question at the debate.

    What strikes me is that there doesn’t seem to be any real from-the-heart belief evident in his delivery in any of these clips. He stumbles a bit as he seems to say to himself “Now what were those talking points that I memorized and practiced that the polls said would go over best with the morons who will be voting in the Republican primaries”?

    Nor that the Democrats don’t pander some, but the Repugnant field is doing a reprise of the 2012 race to the bottom, and the last man (waffler) standing is going to need a 20 foot ladder to get out of the hole. (Unless it’s “BS Ben the Brainy Surgeon”, who will have God fill the hole with grain that will then carry him up like an elevator).

    I remain firmly convinced that the Kochs et al don’t care at all about who wins the White House. Their strategy is to control all the state legislatures and governors, the Supreme Court and both houses of Congress, and the presidential race helps them by distracting the country from their real objective. There is NO other rational explanation for what we see in this campaign.


  3. Mountain top removal is great. You can transform landscapes that have existed for millions of years into flat building sites. The rights of individual property owners of course should extend to bulldozing their property flat. Those that come after would have photos to remind them of the unsightly forested mountains that once existed there. Environmental criminal extraordinaire.

    • dumboldguy Says:

      Yes, indeed—-mountain top removal IS great. Coal mining is dying in VA, and we don’t have as much mountain-top removal as our neighbors. The folks in West VA just love it though, and they’re going to change their motto from “Wild and Wonderful West Virginia” to “Wild and Wonderful and FLAT West Virginia”.

      And they DO have wonderful uses for those FLAT areas that have been seeded with non-native grasses and trees and won’t look anywhere near “normal” for a couple hundred years. They have put golf courses on some and built shopping malls on others. Of course, neither have done very well because most WV-an’s “hobbies” trend towards fishing and hunting to keep from starving, and they don’t have much money for the kind of “shopping” that takes place at malls.


  4. Reality a prison. Poor Homo S Sapiens. Now wonder he lost Eden.


  5. It didn’t take her too long to get to, “but isn’t this Obama’s fault”?
    All people have to do is tape one episode of Fox views and just play that over and again. Next: “more war on Christmas from the Obama administration and Starbucks”. There. We’re set for the rest of the year.

    TEST. The f*n wordpress seems no longer working with my f*n android junk

    • dumboldguy Says:

      ?????? Looked at your blog on my old PC and alles in Ordnung ist there (did I get that right?—-my German is at the Hogan’s Heroes-Stalag 17-Youtube Hitler Rant parodies level).

  7. indy222 Says:

    Rand “I like Coal” Paul….. you’d think they’d have learned from Romney’s failure. But then, that would take a brain, and we realize now that they just don’t.


  8. Although his climate change comment is predictable, they do have a point about political correctness having gone too far. And not just on college campuses as they claim, but throughout our entire society. For example, how easy do you find it to have ANY discussion of climate change with your friends, family and colleagues? It’s been a taboo subject for too long now.

    • greenman3610 Says:

      agreed on PC. Agreed on the taboo nature of intelligent AGW discussion. That’s why denial organizations have sought to make it a “social wedge issue”.
      it worked.

    • otter17 Says:

      There is certainly some social penalty to stating facts of the matter from some groups within the friends, family, colleagues, circles.

      I go ahead full speed ahead anyway, but I can imagine some being more timid when being judged. Still, times like these require courage.


  9. “They Almost Put you in Prison for Challenging Climate Change”

    Be grateful Paul they don’t just take deniers like you and your ilk outside and string you up from the nearest lamppost or serve you a Pb sandwich.

    People like you, who have power and influence, that are trying to dismiss the global climate threat we are living under, are traitors, both to their country and to humanity at large. The science of global warming has been settled for a very long time (in that we’ve known ( #exxonknew ) for many decades that our activities are causing it). You have no legitimate excuse.

      Ummm… don’t answer your doorbell, dog. It’s the FBI – a-comin’ to pay youse a little visit……

      • dumboldguy Says:

        Why would the FBI visit me over this? I’m just volunteering, with the presumption that the swine will be afforded all their due process rights and be convicted and sentenced to death—that’s when I’d be willing to get involved, and I’d even bring my own gun and ammunition.

      I really want them to live. To suffer every drop of shame and remorse they have coming.
