Or is it stoopidity? One never knows until one attempts to teach the untaught. “Ignorance is curable, stupid is forever” RAH Kafiroon Jan 23 2020 at 12:59 am Greta’s ignorance via her parents and other shrill voices is at least equal to Skye. Her desire to eliminate oil which is the reason that in 2019 we achieved 90% of the world not starving to death. Trucks, tractors, pesticides, fertilizers and all the other food production enhancers. Oh Wait! Maybe that is it. They want many starving people! cmblake6 Jan 23 2020 at 2:13 am Agenda 21 still has not been disowned. Pamela Jan 23 2020 at 2:46 am Nor has Agenda 2030 Bill G Jan 23 2020 at 6:55 am They want far, far fewer people. The minor detail that the masses are necessary to maintaining their lifestyle escapes them. Kinda like the congresscritter that complained about the stench of the critters infesting his Hill in summer. Brent Dotson Jan 23 2020 at 4:36 pm No they don’t want starving people. They want total ownership of oil, real estate, and labor. They will squeeze as much out of that as they can for the rulers. When the side effect of starving people happen, the only thing that is left is labor and they turn everybody into slaves. Taken to its logical conclusion, the despots will start eating each other. Never reached that because the people rise up before that happens. Eventually, they’ll try it again. People never learn MasterDiver Jan 23 2020 at 9:40 am Great Heinlein quote Zar Belk! John D. Egbert Jan 23 2020 at 8:13 pm Goes right along with: “An armed society is a polite society.” Taken together, a perfect formula for survival . . . Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Jan 23 2020 at 12:46 am BernieBros can talk all the smack they want. Implementing it is a different matter. Just because gun owners were polite in Richmond, doesn’t mean they don’t know how to, or lack the will to, defend themselves by lethal means. cz93x62 Jan 23 2020 at 1:11 am I have a relative by marriage that is much like Skye. Thankfully, she has no children. Her most recent side-hustle was as member of a marijuana cultivation “collective” in the local mountains. The gendarmerie took a dim view of same, and snagged their crop 2 weeks prior to cut & market prep. The “collectivists” (their term) all got tickets and court dates. Not long after that, winds blew through and destroyed their PVC-pipe-and-visqueen greenhouses. being a crook is such a tough job. Ozymandius Jan 23 2020 at 1:19 am Was Skye born stupid, or was it something she had to work at? pyrodice Jan 23 2020 at 1:26 am And by “work” do you mean “collect benefits”? Because… Well, you know. kadaka Jan 23 2020 at 1:42 am Was raped when young, the high school football team was mentioned iirc, emotionally damaged, and like lots of libs view government as the loving nurturing parent who will always protect and care for them. And like seen with Bernie’s gulag aficionados, some libs also want a government that will be the vengeful parent who will extract bloody payment from those who would hurt their children with terrible acts like telling them to get a haircut and get a real job. JSStryker Jan 23 2020 at 1:12 pm Yes John Jan 23 2020 at 2:22 pm Being willfully ignorant is a large part of being Woke. Otherwise those pesky things called facts will ruin the Perpetual March to Utopia they harbor in their heads. And yes, it’s hard work being that delusional, but they think it will eventually make them “happy”. WayneM Jan 23 2020 at 1:34 am Grievance Greta had a birthday recently. Sour 16 and unlikely to get kissed. John M. Jan 23 2020 at 6:05 pm Maybe by a MAN (truck) Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Jan 24 2020 at 12:06 am I remember seeing those a time or two in Germany. John Block Jan 23 2020 at 1:47 am Greta’s a prime example of child abuse. So well indoctrinated by her parents and their friends, she fell into a emotional panic that may have caused her mental illness and self-starvation – it stunted her growth to that of an undernurished 12 year old, at 16. It had to effect her mental state, her so-called parents should be horse-whipped. interventor Jan 23 2020 at 8:01 am Greta is autistic, suffering from Asperger’s. A major symptom of Asperger’s is obsession on a major topic. Both her parents and handlers should be prosecuted for child abuse, using her like a meat puppet. Night-Gaunt49 Jan 23 2020 at 2:03 am Leave it to the opposition to paint an intelligent child as mentally disturbed an abused. Right from the get go. Now if she was all for oil and guns and Bibles they’d be lauding over her like nobody’s business. We need to stop burning all carbon based power sources and then start taking the excess CO2 and methane out of the atmosphere and the oceans to remove the acid build up from hydro-carbon bonding with the water to produce carbonic acid which are eating the life of the oceans away and killing the reefs. We have long past our time to switch away from it. Should have gotten the wake up call in the 1970’s. We have time as long as the sun is quiescent and cool. We are heating when we should be warming. We are cooking our own goose and our planet. kadaka Jan 23 2020 at 2:19 am July 25, 2019: The Total Myth of Ocean Acidification: Science! Edition Good reading w/ references. Enjoy! Henry Jan 23 2020 at 3:23 am Wrong website, dude. Here, on me: https://www.gocomics.com/doonesbury eon Jan 23 2020 at 6:24 am Let me know when you stop opposing nuclear power, and stop wanting to tear down hydroelectric dams to “make rivers wild again”. While you’re at it, be aware that a “quiescent, cool” sun is one that is not supplying enough radiant energy to keep this planet out of an ice age. See “Maunder Minimum” and “Dalton Minimum”, plus International Solar Year 1964-65 “The Year of the Quiet Sun”. That was the “wake up call” that the eco-fanatics have been ignoring for six decades. clear ether eon Pamela Jan 23 2020 at 1:05 pm You want another real wake up call. The Oroville Dam should have been replaced decades ago with a concrete one. The water level keeps getting reduced forestall a rupture. When it goes go, Sacramento will be wiped out in less than 3 hours. The water will continue further down and take out a section of Interstate 5. Not to mention the lives of over 2 million people ~ it took 3 days to evacuate the last time there was a “problem with water leakage”. The crop losses will be catastrophic as well as the additional damages and carnage. Not So Newsome is limiting water usage per household person to 50 gallons a day. It’s a $1000 fine is you go over the daily allotment. John Jan 23 2020 at 2:34 pm California, the State of Denial. cfm56dash7 Jan 23 2020 at 2:35 pm While I don’t wish this sort of catastrophe on anyone, why does this description have me thinking of the Augean stables in the labors of Hercules? Is the capitol on high ground? GWB Jan 23 2020 at 6:59 pm Fortunately I don’t eat avocados, almonds, or much salad, so the crop failures will impact me about as much as a lettuce recall. 😉 John D. Egbert Jan 23 2020 at 8:18 pm Let’s hear it for a properly grilled Porterhouse! Baked potato on the side (with [lots of] butter, sea salt and bacon bits), if desired. Wash down with home brew . . . Jefferson A Selvy Jan 24 2020 at 4:25 am Should Sacramento be wiped out by the failure of said dam, will I miss it? The greater number of casualties will be democrats and other vermin that desire my destruction. PaulS Jan 23 2020 at 7:39 am Well, it’s better than lauding over her completely misguided and incorrect view of the world. Who is it that actually stole her hope? Pretty sure it’s the “hope and change” , or is that “rope and chains”, crowd. How Dare You! GWB Jan 23 2020 at 7:52 am an intelligent child Citing facts not in evidence. As a matter of fact, all the evidence we have is that she is nothing more than full of spite and heavily propagandized. if she was all for oil and guns and Bibles If she was actually intelligent about it, perhaps. But we (not everyone who claims to be “on the right”) don’t use children as our propaganda props and human shields. We need to stop burning all carbon based power sources You don’t understand energy storage density, obviously. Especially when you need portable energy. (Batteries really don’t even come close.) taking the excess CO2 and methane out of the atmosphere Define “excess”? Because I don’t think you or the climate alarmist ‘leaders’ have any idea what the ideal range of CO2 in the atmo is. Should have gotten the wake up call in the 1970’s. Well, yes, we should have. Then some idiots (who happen to be propagandists now for the same baloney you believe) made a couple of movies that scared people away from nuclear power, and we were stuck with fossil fuels for a while longer. Oh, and solar power had about 1% efficiency in the 70s. It couldn’t provide more than token power. Even with its efficiency way up in 2020, it still can’t provide sufficient power for modern society. We are heating when we should be warming. Huh? We are cooking … our planet. You need to have more faith in your god, Gaia. She’s a sturdy gal who rebounds pretty quickly – often faster than her admirers think. She handles volcanoes, nuclear accidents, ocean-spanning storms, and even acidic water with great aplomb. (Funny, isn’t it, that the same people (often) who think the earth can’t handle our puny little efforts at despoiling her ALSO think that minorities can’t handle themselves without these folks controlling things. Coincidence? Nah.) PaulS Jan 23 2020 at 8:12 am Awesome rebuttal, but it will do nothing to change a mind incapable of absorbing facts. I don’t even try anymore, too frustrating! I’d like to mock them, but that would be rude, so I just nod and politely laugh. Wood Jan 23 2020 at 8:13 am How does one manufacture solar panels and batteries I wonder? High carbon footprint. And what is their lifespan I wonder? It’s all a trade off, no free lunch as they say. I’d like to see us handle waste better. An o buoys choice is for all packaging to be made of recycled material, and to be minimalist, and to be recycled. After all, packaging is intended to be discarded. People would lose their minds if they had to manage their own waste. Landfills are a poor choice for maintaining drinking water quality. So start with *less* packaging. Jefferson A Selvy Jan 24 2020 at 4:29 am An orbital He3 reactor parked in L5 beaming tesla style broadcast power oughta do the job just fine. Easy enough to do if funding could be had, but what would those who profit from fear do then? Moe Jan 23 2020 at 9:43 am The “wake-up call” in the 1970s? At that point, it was the next ice age and the hole in the ozone layer. Quite the opposite of what you’re saying here. Capn Jack Jan 23 2020 at 1:48 pm Dang! There’s one under every rock Halley Jan 23 2020 at 5:59 am Yes, Sweden is responsible for Greta. But also Ann Margret, Britt Ekland and Victoria Silvstedt. Call it a draw. Wood Jan 23 2020 at 8:15 am We’re “responsible” for Shrillery Klinton too, so… *shudder* Paladin Jan 23 2020 at 7:23 am It is a “Religion” to them, and they will not tolerate heretics any more than Islam does. Gang, do not confuse them with “facts” their mind is already made up. When ever I have tried to educate them with another point of view. They just suck their teeth, and say “Oh really!” Like I am the one who is preaching magic. John D. Egbert Jan 23 2020 at 8:22 pm Always remember: Islam is a political system masquerading as a religion — socialism/communism is a religious system masquerading as a political system. Steve Peterson Jan 23 2020 at 9:00 am GWB When pinatubo releases more co2 in a day than a year of human industry, John Jan 23 2020 at 2:40 pm And the particulates released actually cooled the planet for at least a year. Bill G Jan 23 2020 at 10:07 am Stockholm Syndrome; is that what’s infected the Nobel Prize committees? Mike Seden Jan 23 2020 at 10:14 am Hey Chris, Go to the home page at http://www.nedes.biz and look at the footer. If that picture isn’t okay send me one that you want everyone to see. I don’t have a lot of followers, (I think I have 2) 🙂 but it put’s you out there JTC Jan 23 2020 at 10:19 am The girl is just a tool. Just like our correspondent above. Just like the BernieBros. Different tools have different uses, but the product is all the same. Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman Jan 24 2020 at 12:20 am Product = fecal fertilizer? (ducks, runs, tries to hide) DogByte6RER Jan 23 2020 at 10:21 am That creepy Swedish girl with the Village of the Damned” stare looks more like a hostage taker than a hostage or a victim … just calling it as I see it. Meanwhile … Skye is just a libtard. She’ll always have Stockholm Syndrome to creepy Marxist EuroTrash teen political agitators and their ilk. JTC Jan 23 2020 at 10:54 am Patty Hearst was a hostage too. No the girl became a tool like the others serving the same master, producing the same product. Skye OTOH, IS the product. JTC Jan 23 2020 at 12:48 pm But their QC is for shit. Their products like Skye are beginning to think on their own (shudder). Entire historical product lines are wondering what happened to their promised gains in market share as they see themselves being replaced with New and Improved lines. Their entire marketing and advertising campaigns are failing as more and more find out there is nothing behind them. There is no there there. Still, many poisoned products remain on the shelf. The time has come to purge them. shooter 2.5 Jan 23 2020 at 1:21 pm I think we are on the correct road to a self sustaining environment. Our U.S. population is slowly shrinking and we’re doing a lot to clean up our country. The huge problem and the pure destruction of this plan is the democrats want to expand our population with illegals. Build the wall, get rid of the illegals, stop the drugs and slowly lower our population. Put the welfare people to work cleaning things up whether it’s sorting trash from valuable elements or cleaning the litter. Let the leftists kill their offspring up to the third trimester. Kafiroon Jan 23 2020 at 1:38 pm Some comments remind me of high school where Global problems were debated as single/or several countries only problem. Having been around in Africa and India I have long ago noted this fact. They Want electricity. They Want running water. They Really want our A.C. Sewers that work and all the other pleasures of advanced living. AND the fact is: the Third World produces the most pollution and speaking of that, China is a huge producer. Don’t see these whiners going to those places and lecturing them. One of the collection of huts and many people in Africa I know would feed them to the crocodiles. They live in smoking brush and leaves to keep mosquitoes with Malaria away. JTC Jan 23 2020 at 2:33 pm In Trump’s own words… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNylxBoaAYs Alaska Paul Jan 23 2020 at 5:12 pm The root word for ideology most be idiot. Gotta be. Do anything but think logically. Even if your life depends on it. PCChaos Jan 23 2020 at 1:45 pm You had me at Britt Eklund and Ann-Margaret. Sold! See the man on your way out for your parting gift!!! JTC Jan 23 2020 at 6:04 pm Gotta admit when I first saw that ‘toon title my twisted brain processed it as “Swedish Massage”, and I thought all right, another “bit player” sequence. Imagine my disappointment and revilsion when I saw that odd little borg Thunberg mentioned. That’s just mean, Muir! JTC Jan 23 2020 at 6:06 pm …revulsion. John M. Jan 23 2020 at 6:17 pm Just when you think Skye is beginning to awaken to reality… kadaka Jan 23 2020 at 7:01 pm Proper sheep management: First introduce the herd to a little bit of something frightening, let them acclimate, then they won’t be scared and will be accepting when exposed to a whole lot of it. Illinois officials say more than 500 noncitizens registered to vote and 19 voted in 2018 interventor Jan 23 2020 at 10:18 pm Off topic, observing the impeachment proceedings in the Senate. Usually, I eschew sadism, However, viewing Republican and Democrat Senators having to endure the utterances of Schiff and Nadler, as sweet.
