If you can't laugh, what's the point?....Both sides have some good stuff from what I've seen although I get bombarded with right wing emails from my step mother (retired superior court judge) and some others.

The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from the Consulate at Bergen, Norway.


Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard of temperatures in the Arctic zone.

Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.

Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.

Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.

Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable.

I must apologize.


I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922 as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post 96 years ago. This must have been caused by Model T Ford emissions or possibly from horse farts.

The Mysterious Case Of AOC’s Scrubbed 'Green New Deal' Details

Washington Examiner

Updated Feb 09, 2019, 04:29 PM

On Feb. 5, the congressional office of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted a new blog entry under “energy issues” detailing her "Green New Deal" proposal and answering “frequently asked questions.”

The page, announcing an 8:30 a.m. launch on Feb. 7, is now gone, and a top adviser suggested Friday it was actually authored and distributed by the GOP.

By the afternoon of Feb. 7, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., removed the document from her website without explanation but following backlash and even ridicule over the radical plans outlined within it, including a call to "eliminate emissions from cows or air travel" — which would functionally ban the latter — and to provide “economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.” --

The document vanished just hours after Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., formally unveiled a "Green New Deal" resolution that has so far attracted 67 Democratic co-sponsors in the House. It’s a nonbinding measure that is less detailed than the now-deleted FAQ document but calls for a complete and speedy overhaul of the nation’s energy, transportation, and farming sectors in order to eliminate carbon emissions in the coming decades.

The communications staff has so far not responded to an inquiry about the now-missing blog post.

But on Saturday morning, chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti tweeted that the FAQ page was indeed posted by the Ocasio-Cortez staff but was done so in error. He called the page "an early draft of a FAQ that was clearly unfinished and that doesn’t represent the GND resolution got published to the website by mistake (idea was to wait for launch, monitor q's, and rewrite that FAQ before publishing)."

Ocasio-Cortez later Saturday admitted the same, tweeting at a Washington Post reporter, "There was also a draft version that got uploaded + taken down. There's also draft versions floating out there."

A policy adviser to Ocasio-Cortez, though, told Fox News Friday night that the claims were some kind of hoax perpetuated by Republicans.



You elect an imbecile who authors an idiotic proposal for suicide then blame it on Conservatives.

Fucking Lemmings

Don’t know about Honey Boo Boo, whatever that is, but I believe it was the Robinson’s themselves that made Duck Dunasty successful?
You know, self made millionaires and all that?
Sorry, that doesn't fit the narrative that half the country is a bunch of illiterate rubes. Especially if they look like that.

Yeah, I know.

Just seems odd that the oracle would mock them, as they seem to epitomize everything that he supports...religious beliefs aside.

Every single Robinson beside Uncle Si has a college degree, Si served instead.
Phil was the football hero as well, and was drafted by the Redskins as I recall but persude his real passion instead.
None are pro gov, none are really that extremely wealthy, think that at best Willy tips in around $30 million net, with everyone else hovering around $10 mill or so?
All of this was by hard work, dedication to a passion, and a belief in what they were doing.
Not sure what there is to really mock about them?
