Fishing, it’s a thing – a great thing and a great thing to love. Well, to the sane people among us at least; others, not so much. Great or not though, it underscores a lot of the key differences in outlook between the two primary ideologies in the US.
As the results of- and the Dems’ petty, utterly graceless, and insulting responses to the elections in both Florida and Georgia show, the Dems, especially the anti-White, race-baiting Blacks they come up with as candidates, will say and do anything to attack the process and the will of the voters, who rejected these sub-par individuals.
Both Gillum and Abrams claimed that they didn’t really lose and the that the results were because the elections were stolen from them via some combination of election fraud, voter suppression, and – of course, given these candidates – racism. And, as expected in these times, they spent the next couple of weeks engaging in bemoaning the “theft” and engaging in lawfare – and outright election fraud – against the victors and the People, who rejected these candidates as unworthy of office.
Some things sound so good and right, as if they a nuggets of revealed truth. And yet, sometimes these same things are dangerously wrong because, while right sounding on their face, they are based upon a false premise.
If you want irresponsible politicians to spend less, you must give them less to spend.
— Irwin Schiff
The quote above, attributed to semi-famous tax protester Irwin Schiff, is an example of such a dangerously seductive false statement.
Politicians, irresponsible or not, are not given money to spend. They take it by fiat and force of arms. This is something that Mr. Schiff and his adherents learned the hard way.
Both the Warmists and those who profiteer off their credulity and hatred for Western capitalism and global power aren’t going to go quietly into that cold, dark night of irrelevance that assuredly awaits them. As long as there’s money to be made or wealth to steal they’ll just keep hammering away it, irrespective of whatever actual climate data shows or how flawed their models are shown to be.
One thing that is changing, however, is that their masks are slipping and their true agenda is being spoken of openly at last.
This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution.
— UNFCCC executive Secretary, Christiana Figueres
It’s interesting that the head of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) has publicly admitted that their goal is the restructuring and reshaping of the global economy and global industrial base. I just don’t know if it’s good or bad that she was so willing to admit that the UN’s goals have more to do with modifying the economic climate through redistributive “justice” than the weather.
Such brazen honestly after over a decade of lies and misdirections is either a sign of desperation and folly, growing confidence, or yet another attempt to re-brand Global Warming, this time as a “Social Justice” issue.
