Funny how so much of what climate scam cultists want is to knock the human race back hundreds and hundreds of years economically
Our addiction to growth is harming the climate
We must wean ourselves off unsustainable economic growth if we are to cut greenhouse gas emissions and avoid catastrophic climate change, say some economists. But what are the alternatives to growth?
Electing Leftists usually limits economic growth.
On the way home from work in your electric car, you stop off at the local discount store and pick up some beef for dinner. The meat was shipped in from Brazil to Germany. The land where the cow grazed was once rainforest. The nickel used in the car made its way from a polluting mine in the Philippines to a European assembly line.
Progress is bad, energy is bad, higher standards of living are bad, and so on. So what do Climate Cultists suggest?
In the US and Europe, the idea of “degrowth” — a movement around downsizing production and consumption, and moving the economy away from infinite expansion in a just and equitable way — is gaining traction.
That’s partly because of the growing gap between rich and poor. Part of the problem is that we measure society’s economic progress and well-being using Gross Domestic Product (GDP), say some economists.
Strange: I’m getting the idea that this whole ‘climate change’ movement is intertwined with all the other Statist/Progressive ideas. But, hey, if these climate scammers really believe this stuff, they should practice what they preach. Oh, wait…
On an individual level, “degrowthers” might choose not to fly or drive a car but they say environmental problems are not individual problems. Solutions must be political and community-based.
In other words, forcing everyone else to comply per government force.
Like everything else Leftism encompasses, this is about control, of you, me, and everyone else.
….as those who, like egalitarian leftists, will not see, or hear, and therefore will not acknowledge facts
Allahu Akbar. You hear it everywhere these days.
Special agent Scott Wickland said that he heard cries of “Allahu Akbar” before the Benghazi attack. And then the guards ran for their guns.
In Nice, France, the Islamic terrorist who killed 86 people and wounded over 400 by running them over with a truck, shouted, “Allahu Akbar”. In New York, the Islamic terrorist who was trying to imitate him, also shouted, “Allahu Akbar.” The 9/11 hijackers had the same message, “Allahu Akbar”.
“Allahu Akbar” has been present at virtually every major recent Islamic terror attack in the West.
But according to the New York Times, “Allahu Akbar” is an “innocent” and “innocuous” expression. According to one of the Times’ sources, “You see a reallу beautiful woman” and “уou go, ‘Allahu Akbar.’”
If all those shouts of “Allahu Akbar” in Paris, London and New York are caused by Muslim terrorists encountering attractive women, their reaction of choice to an attractive woman is a killing spree.
“Allahu Akbar” is not “innocent” or “innocuous.” It’s at the core of what makes Islam violent.
Go read the whole thing folks.
Someone fell out of the Tree of Inanity, and hit every branch on the way down
In a recent op-ed for the school paper, a white Pitzer student frets that the colleges’ outdoor programs, though open to all students and well-funded, are “predominantly white spaces” that deny people of color “access to the outdoors.”
The op-ed, written by Malcolm McCann, a freshman at Pitzer College—one of the member institutions of the Claremont Colleges—calls out clubs like Pitzer Outdoor Adventure (POA) and On the Loose (OTL), among the most amply funded outdoor clubs at the Claremont Colleges, for being “predominately white spaces.”
So, how are these clubs preventing access to the outdoors? They aren’t, but white imperialism………..
“Both clubs claim to be accessible: while trips are open to any student wanting to go, not everyone feels the same ease in entering the outdoors,” McCann claims, saying, “This discomfort is unfortunately caused by existing racial boundaries.”
The article contends that white imperialism, as well as the fact that three prominent naturalist figures in U.S. history happen to be white, generate this pervasive racial exclusion.
“Historically, white people in imperialist conquests have appropriated land as their own,” McCann asserts. “North America rightfully belongs to indigenous communities, yet it has been taken away from them by force. Consequently, a false sense of ownership of nature permeates white America.”
Oh the delusion is deep with this one. The fact is nature does not discriminate, but Mr. Whiny Pants does not accept reality because he is too busy throwing a pity orgy
“Similarly, the image of a modern outdoor enthusiasts is white, as is the historical image of a naturalist,” he continues. “The great icons of nature—John Muir, Walt Whitman, Henry David Thoreau—are all white men. At present, most famous rock climbers are also disproportionately white.”
McCann also takes the term “outdoorsy” as another expression of “whiteness” that excludes people of color from outdoor activities.
Pardon me for asking but how in the Blue Hell does an expression prevent anyone from going to a national park, national forest, state park……..? Clue, it doesn’t! The only people who are excluded from outdoor activities exclude themselves. And that is their right.
“This whiteness manifests in the term ‘outdoorsy’—a descriptor for those who spend a significant time in the outdoors, who are equipped with the necessary gear, and who feel connected to nature,” he says. “The image of the ‘outdoorsy individual’ is an exclusive classification that gives white people the authority to venture into the outdoors freely, leaving people of color behind.”
Good Freaking Grief! But it gets worse, because rock climbers use terms others, who do not rock climb, do not understand
The exclusion is further perpetuated by the use of obscure outdoor lingo in descriptions of trips. No one who has never climbed before knows what a tri-cam, a grigri, or an ATC is. These terms are useful for ease of discussion among those who rock climb, yet remain obscure to those who have not.
Hmmm, I am white, love the outdoors, fishing, hiking, boating, but I also have no clue what those terms mean. I am I a victim? Am I excluded? No, I do not recognize that lingo because, brace yourself, I do not, nor have any desire, to rock climb. DUH! Again, McCann should come out of the Pit of Pretend Victims and think. Note, not emote but think critically about the nonsense he writes.
The Blast spoke with Sanders, who said he “won’t cast judgment on one moment when a joke went south to capture who this man represents in a lifetime commitment of love and compassion to all ethnicities.”
Sanders, who signed with the Cowboys in 1995 and led them to a Super Bowl championship, says, “Jerry does more for his players than anyone in the league, I don’t think there’s a player, whether African American or Caucasian, that would agree [the video] is a representation of Jerry.”
As we previously reported, Jones made the comment to a fan in 2013 after the man asked the NFL team owner to tape a message for his wife or fiancée. Jones said, “Jennifer, congratulations on the wedding. Now, you know he’s with a black girl tonight, don’t you?”
The NFL star also posed the question, “If I made the same joke to another ethnicity, would we be as bothered?”
No, we would not, but the double standards that Leftism has foisted upon us are very real, and Jones has dared to take a stance on national anthem protests so he must now be destroyed, because he challenged the narrative
When it comes to the New York City subways, there’s no such thing as ladies and gentlemen.
Conductors on subway trains have been told to stop addressing passengers as “ladies and gentlemen” when making announcements about delays, detours or other things, and instead use the gender-neutral terms “passengers,” ”riders,” and “everyone.”
The new train announcement scripts are part of an effort by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to improve communication with passengers frustrated with having to deal with a system troubled with delays, mechanical failures and even derailments. Conductors have also been instructed to give subway riders more information about delays, departing from a longtime practice of making sparse announcements that sometimes obscure the real reason a train isn’t moving.
What do any of those things have to do with calling women ladies, and men gentlemen? INCLUSION of course
The first part covered the greetings used for passengers, replacing “ladies and gentlemen” with the other neutral phrases, which follows a similar step taken by the London Underground over the summer.
Inclusiveness was a factor in the change, as was a desire to try out some other greetings, Weinstein said. The usage will still be heard in recorded announcements until they are all phased out, he said.
Next stop? Madness!
Rep. Marjorie Decker, a Cambridge Democrat, made at the hearing as she was testifying in support of various gun control measures and against bills she said would erode Massachusetts’ status as the state with the lowest rate of gun deaths.
“It is a privilege that we allow individuals to hold onto something that causes harm and death,” Decker said. “It is a privilege to have a car license, it is a privilege to have a gun license.”
Jim Wallace, executive director of the Gun Owners Action League, said Decker’s comment illustrated frustrations lawful gun owners feel in Massachusetts.
“One of the problems that we face here in Massachusetts is that the Second Amendment is barely recognized in the state as a whole and certainly not as a civil right. I could not have asked for a better witness to that than the previous legislator that actually described our civil rights as a privilege,” Wallace said. “I am aghast that an elected official would actually say that … but that’s not unusual.”
Can you say unfit to serve?
Anyone who argues concealed carry, and armed citizens are not a blessing should really do some research and educate themselves, and stop listening to idiots like this buffoonwho would have disarmed the man who shout the Sotherland Springs maniac
Good Freaking Grief! The man ran from his home after hearing shooting with his rifle and prevented the killer from committing God knows how much more carnage, And as Tom Knighton points out, the very weapon Biden says should be illegal was the right tool for stopping the killer
If the gunman was wearing body armor, as the reports have indicated, it’s unlikely that a pistol shot would have been enough to stop him.
A bolt-action rifle might have, but in the event of a miss, the reload time could have been fatal.
No, the situation called for a semi-automatic rifle with a good round capacity, and that’s what hero Stephen Willeford had. He had it and he used it to save who knows how many lives.
Meanwhile, Biden’s anti-gun bias is as clear now as it ever was. The man who thinks you should just shoot through the door with a shotgunalso thinks no one should have a modern sporting rifle.
Biden admits that bad people will get their hands on weapons, yet he wants to disarm god people? Crazy Uncle Joe is at it again
