We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
City to vote on climate change labels at gas pumps
BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -- The San Francisco Bay Area city of Berkeley will decide whether to slap stickers on gas pumps warning that burning fuel contributes to global warming in a plan that's a first of its kind in the country.
Where do governments come up with these fools? What does climate change (and, I believe, climate is always changing) have to do with social justice and making peoples throughout the world equal to one another?
At this point, I really think the only solution is to fire them all by defunding their every program, thus their salaries. Then they might be equal with all the people they put out of jobs with their fatuous manipulations and lies.
Environmental groups have exaggerated the affects of global warming for years. This climate alarmism has brought in millions of dollars in donations and grants. Normally, deceiving the public for financial gain would be considered criminal fraud (deception used for financial or personal gain). However, these groups are not deceiving the public for financial gain, but for the good of humanity so it's OK.
A socialist/progressive desires control of everything. Power + Money = CONTROL There is a reason that Obamacare, Global warming, Transportation, and Energy are always about more law and more taxes....they want more control...more redistribution.
Anybody who still buys into "global warming" is probably either too stupid or too brainwashed to realize that they're entitled to a refund for whatever amount they paid for learning "science" as a part of their education. I can't imagine how people who understand scientific method, and the lack of same when applied to the phony studies and the fanatical believers of climate change, can even say the phrase global warming without burstin' into laughter.
