Not As Stupid As They Think

http://www.climatechangedispatch.com/not-as-stupid-as-they-think.html
Late last year, the name Jonathan Gruber became part of the public consciousness for his newly public declarations that Obamacare passed due to the “stupidity of the American voter.” While there are many cases one can cite affirming that most Americans don’t closely follow politics and/or the political process and, therefore, may be called “stupid,” the campaign to sell the manmade climate change crisis narrative proves otherwise.

We are smarter than they think. We are not buying what they are selling.

Global warming has been the most expensive and extensive “public relations campaign in history”—as David Harsanyi calls it in his post at TheFederalist.com. He identifies the “25 years of political and cultural pressure,” as including “most governmental agencies, a long list of welfare-sucking corporations, the public school system, the universities, an infinite parade of celebrities, think tanks, well-funded environmental groups and an entire major political party.” Yet, despite all the “gentle nudging,” “stern warnings,” and “fear mongering,” Harsanyi states: “Since 1989, there’s been no significant change in the public’s concern level over global warming.”

Clearly, Americans aren’t that stupid after all. We can smell a rat.

It isn’t that we don’t believe the climate changes—it does, has, and always will—but, as Harsanyi states: “there is a difference in believing climate change is real and believing that climate change is calamitous.” He continues: “as the shrieking gets louder, Americans become more positive about the quality of their environment and less concerned about the threats.” And: “as the fear-mongering becomes more far-fetched, the accusations become more hysterical, and the deadlines for action keep being pushed right over the horizon, fewer people seem to really care.”

2. Bluntly because he is

He has less chance of getting the nomination than Hillary has, so I'd put it somewhere between slim and none.

3. I have really tried to be conscientious over the years

but I swear the more shrill and unhinged the radicals sound on this, the more radicalized I find myself becoming. I'm starting to think that for every crazy prediction of doom I hear I'm going to burn a tire and dedicate it to their name. I may start the fire with used motor oil, styrofoam, plastic and the dirtiest coal I can find.

4. Even if you don't believe in climate change,

why would you purposely pollute your surroundings?

5. It's a joke

To alleviate the stress of having to hear constant lunacy. I actually can't afford to screw up my land. I'm on a well and have to drink the water that percolates through the yard.

I find the image mentally pleasing, though.

11. Wish I could use mine

When we rebuilt after the fire I put in a see through fireplace. The problem is I built the thing so damn big (65x48) I need a custom set of doors on one side to get good draw when I light it and the cheapest one I can find is about $2000. Not sure what I was thinking there. Right now It just fills the house with smoke. I should have it in by winter, though.
