Chomsky on the Threat to the Neoliberal Narrative

You can readily and indisputably identify a blithering idiot by how concerned they are by glarbal worming.

It's scary stuff! I'd hate to imagine that one day, my ashes once spread on a corn field in Iowa, will return to being a seabed.

Noam Chomsky is, was, and always will be a smug, self-right-righteous, egocentric, suffocating presence with an unlimited capacity to overestimate his own intelligence and significance. A patently obvious descendant of the original Frankfurt School whose malignant view of life has caused more damage than all the bimbs and bullets exploded in the past century.

What part of Iowa would not fare better and appear more attractive as part of The Garden of the Deep, the Mother of all Life on Earth?

The Environmentalcase Movement is Modern Man's attempt to build yet-another Tower of Babel.

Whenever Man attempts to be his own God, he is stalked, –– and ultimately struck –– by Disaster.

Confusing weather with climate again? Shows how much of the theory you've understood: not even the definitions.

Gert said...

G-d, these ‘Cultural Marxists’ sure keep busy, don’t they? Having raised an army of ‘Feminazis’, then co-opted the LGBT people and the gun control lobby-ette, they’ve also managed to hire thousands of ‘scientists’ to commit the ‘ACC hoax’. One has to almost admire the dedication to bringing down Western Civilisation. Compared to their effort, the ‘9/11 inside job’ was a piece of cake.

I do wish Chomsky wouldn’t mention Europeans shaking in their sandals at the thought of Republican policies: that’s just free online Viagra to people like Beamish! ;-)

Gert, everybody knows climate is weather over time. You don't want to control time, thus weather is your target.

Me, I'd solve glarbal worming by putting more thermometer in the Arctic and call it a day.

Let's take "science lessons" at the knee of people who believe spending more money than you have leads to prosperity.

The only way a leftist passes an IQ tests is if he eats it first.

@ Gert: It's all about charging an extra $1.00 for a cup of coffee so that Columbian coffee growers can get an extra $0.01 a cup more for their beans (the "Fair-trade Price"). Marxism never found a more willing partner than Capitalism.

Nonsense. You conflate an unintended consequence with a driving motive. Highly reductionist.

Gert, everybody knows climate is weather over time.

No, many in your camp don't don't know the difference between weather and climate. You just got caught, that's all. Keep putting ice cubes in a glass of water and claiming 'see? The water level doesn't rise when it melts!'

Way down in the congo land sitting in a coconut tree,

There was a monkey and a chimp--and Lordy how she loved him.

Everynight in the pale moonlight sitting in the coconut tree,

These love words she always said to he...

"Abba dabba dabba dabba dabba dabba dabba"

Said the monkey to the chimp.
Abba dabba dabba dabba Aabba dabba dabba
Said the chimpee to the monk.

All night long they chattered away.

All day long they were happy and gay,

Swinging and swaying in a honky, tonky way.

"Abba dabba dabba dabba Abba dabba dabba"

Said the chimp, "I love but you."

Abba dabba dabba in monkey talk means
Chimp, I love you too."

Then the ol' baboon, one night in June,

Married them and very soon,

They sailed away on an abba dabba honeymoon.

Why do some Jews write "G-d" instead of "God"? |

Writing "G-d" instead of God is a fairly recent custom in America. Many believe this to be a sign of respect, and the custom comes from an interpretation of the ...

Judaism: Why "G-d" Instead of "God"?

Great G-d in Heaven! ain't it reedickalass? ANYTHING to call attention to themselves while setting themselves apart is what it is.

When written or printed, God's Hebrew name (and many of the stand in names used to refer to God) cannot be erased or destroyed. ( See below) There is no prohibition in Jewish law against writing out or erasing the word "God" in English.
