It’s hilarious how you think you are scoring points off me by confusing liberals and Communists (“fellow traveler”). Or, for that matter, your implication that liberals can’t fight. That’s what the Revolutionary War was all about. Indeed, that’s what a lot of my ancestors fought for in the Civil War. And that’s exactly what Hitler thought about America.
Among other things, Hitler had the support of the military, of corporations who thought they could use them, and right-wing judges, which ultimately allowed him to force his will onto Germany, especially after he bullied Hindenburg to give him the Chancellorship. Fortunately, #45 did not have the support of the military, but he has gotten support from a number of right-wing judges and corporations. We must be vigilant.
If you are suggesting we should NOT fight our own home-grown Hitler because we MIGHT get hurt afterwards – you are a traitor to this nation and to democracy. And you are one of the reasons #45 has been as successful as he has been, despite being an utter incompetent as a leader.
Not until he is GONE. Remember that a failed insurrection where they do not jail the leader is merely a practice round. Indeed, even when they do jail the leader, it can still be a practice round. Remember Hitler.
I know many people in Texas who are good folks. But the Republicans have carefully locked up the voting districts, are locking up the voting, and have locked up the legislature and judiciary.
Worse. One got custody and forced the mother to pay child support. https://cafemom.com/news/accused-rapist-gets-custody-of-his-victims-daughter-mom-pays-child-support
Nothing wrong with that! They’re excellent. Dorothy was much stronger in The Wizard of Oz book than she was in the movie, let alone the others. I’ve read some of them, and my wife (a sometime International Wizard of Oz Club member) has read up the Ruth Plumly Thompson and John R. Neill books as well.
God bless Andy Marlette. I knew his uncle (who died in an accident tragically young) a bit, and he’s been proudly continuing the tradition.
Not only a tax break, but it prevents his golf course from being seized by creditors. Every time I think he’s hit bottom, he manages to dig down further – six feet down, in this case.
And this is the ex-wife he not only cheated on PUBLICLY (he BRAGGED about it), but raped and abused…poor woman.
Many right-wing institutions do NOT teach evolution, notably any driven by fundamentalist Christian principles including Biblical literalism. That includes a number of so-called universities, such as Liberty University. I’m glad you embrace both, and many mainstream Christians do, but it is absolutely true that there are schools which do not teach evolution, and they are all on the right.
As for whether “the climate is always changing,” the point is that the climate is changing in ways that are not aligned with normal cycles, and that change is directly attributable to human action, notably burning fossil fuels. If we created the effect, we can change it. This isn’t a new finding, or controversial among anyone in the world except a small percentage of Republicans and petrochemical company executives – oh, yes, and Putin, who has a nation largely funded by their petrochemical industry. But we do need to take action against industries. And working on “means to mitigate the effects of the changing climate” is definitely necessary because of our inaction, but with 80% of the world’s cities being on water, I don’t know that that is practical – and we still need to prevent a runaway greenhouse effect.
Your choice of China is amusing, given that China has been investing in green tech for years now, and is FAR beyond what we have accomplished in the US, despite the fact that early solar and wind technology was created here. China has already had significant impact on its pollution and power sources; in 1985, their energy was 78% fossil fuels, 22% renewables. Now, it is 69% coal, 5% nuclear, and 27% renewables – shifting almost 10% of their energy to non-fossil-fuel, and there is more planned. They haven’t caught up with the US yet, but they’re working on it.
