No. Let's be honest. You used the word ballistic because that's the word your propaganda.. err... news.. website used.

The comic relief is how dumb the dwindling base of Trump supporters truly are. The smaller it gets, the dumber you have to be to stay committed. So congrats on that. I'm sure you'll be there right till the end.

Shame Shame on me for including the headline of this right wing rag. I am trying to do better but could not find video to post alone. Please forgive me I promise I will do better

I am trying harder and last week I even learned that Richard Nixon was impeached. I was so happy to get straightened out on that.

And I have learned that when I read the Washington Post and New York Times that i can go four to seven columns down and find out that the headline was totally bogus..

So hang in with me, I am trying and am getting better at this.

Additionally, if you use BG's strategy to follow the money, who is benefitting the most from Seth Rich's murder? Yep. Laura Ingraham.

So Republicans are MORE likely than Democrats to trust vaccines? Now I really don't know what you were trying to say. You link provided no breakdown for religious/non-religious, and definitely no evangelical/non-evangelical breakdown (Whatever that might even mean).

One of the biggest regulatory scams is 'wetlands'. Some day, that story will be told but the basic idea is that in the 1980's, they adopted a 'no net loss' policy and declared that no more wetlands could be destroyed, however you could purchase 'credits' to destroy wetlands through 'wetland mitigation banks', whereby people would buy otherwise useless swamp or marsh land and then sell very high dollar 'mitigation credits' for developers to destroy wetlands on an as-needed basis.

Ducks Unlimited tells the part of the story where they have 'conserved millions of acres of upland bird habitat for American hunters and sportsmen'.

What they don't talk about is that they're almost certainly the largest 'wetland mitigation bank' in the country, meaning that the right to destroy more wetlands is issued by Ducks Unlimited than anyone else.

Nobody has told this story. I had a lightbulb moment about it one day when listening someone crow about how much wetland acreage had been preserved by Ducks Unlimited, about a week after a relative of mine had to purchase a $30,000 "mitigation credit" to put in a driveway on some land he purchased, to satasfy the state Department of Environmental Whatever. Sure enough, did a little research and...


This is all 'carbon credits' would be. A way to put a permanent 'tax' on what amounts to all human productivity under the bullshit pretext of 'saving the environment', to be paid to governments.

You could convince a liberal to drink a gallon of bleach if you told them it would help save the whales.
You could convince a conservative to drink a gallon of bleach if you told them it would help save a soldier.
So, whenever you need to summon a constituency to get behind something they really don't understand, try to create nexus with one of their trigger-issues and they'll mindlessly support it.
