Well, we could give all power to politicians. We could cripple our economy. We could live quiet lives of desperation, going no where, flying no planes, driving no cars. No extravagant lifestyles of restaurants, theater, or entertainment. We could do that ... to prevent an insignificant rise in temperature 100 years from now.

But I think, at this point, people may have lost interest.

I begin to suspect that journalism prizes are awarded to the journos and papers that make up the most fantastic stories out of thin air. The more “urgent” the “crisis,” the better, so long as it’s scaring the crap out of somebody. In ancient Greece, the headlines would have been “WOLF!” Experienced shepherd boy predicts that the wolf will come back many times to eat the sheep he watches, according to modeling designed by famed philosopher Socrates, who thought of his model while discoursing with youths in the Agora. Mr. Socrates was unavailable for comment, having swallowed some hemlock and died the day before.

Makes sense, the Pulitzer is awarded for the best propaganda, right?

That slurping sound you’re hearing is journalistic oral sex.

A third of Alaskan villages have no police protection?! Oh, nose! Who will stop the igloo invasions? The dog sled jackings? Who will pick up the frozen criminals and defrost them?

The chasm between the mass groupthink delusion and reality is widening.

Pretty good, they brought us spaghetti today after the meeting.
There was garlic bread and little meatballs with dipping sauce.

Spaghetti is for winners.

“So how’s that “getting me banned” project working so far?”

You’re delusional. I am not following you around, looking for the chance to pounce. You don’t matter that much to me or anyone. But if you make further bigoted remarks such as the one I cited and it comes to my attention, you better believe I will pursue your ouster. Simple solution for you. Don’t make any bigoted remarks. Don’t make any personal attacks.

Those are the rules in this forum, and a modicum of self control is all that’s needed to follow them.

“I bet y’alls team didn’t get spaghetti.”

I don’t need any team one way or the other. Just make a bigoted remark or a personal attack right now on this thread, and the mods will do the rest. If you don’t want to be banned, don’t do that. Easy enough. Sorry I didn’t make you feel special.

So your bad-ass response to things you don't like is to call the cops?

Wow. OK, Karen.

I come here to discuss the issues of the day, science, literature, whatever, with my friends. You are not numbered among them, because you do nothing but exude bile and obsess about a non-issue, those evil blog pimps (BRRRRRRR!/s). So as far as I’m concerned, you’re a party crasher. I’ll call the cops on a party crasher, same as I’d call ICE on a border hopper.

You don’t belong here. You are here to pick fights that you won’t venture in person. Safe behind the anonymity of a screen name, you feel safe enough to talk trash. That, sir, is cowardice.

So, yes, I will call the mods on you. I have called the mods on you.

Need I add that Fightin Whitey says he writes half your stuff. You’re a troll that needs a ghost writer! Pathetic.

Whoa!
That was some name-calling you just did there.
You better call the cops, Karen.
