Growing old in America

 

I used to think I was just a regular guy, but . . .

  • I was born white, which now,whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.
  • I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist.
  • I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobic.
  • I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.
  • I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby.
  • I am older than 50, which makes me a bit less than I used to be.
  • I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.
  • I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.
  • I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.
  • I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.
  • I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.
  • Recently, a sick old woman called me and my friends a “basket of deplorables”.
  • I need to thank all my friends for sticking with me through these abrupt, new found challenges in my life and my thinking!
  • I just can’t imagine or understand what’s happened to me so quickly!
  • Funny . . . it’s all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years!
  • And if all this crap wasn’t enough to deal with. I’m now afraid to go into either restroom!

Climate Change in Action

This Global Warming is causing the penguins to starve. This is terrible. The Warming is causing this freezing causing the chicks to starve but in the Arctic, it is good for the polar bears, but not good for the penguins. So we need more warming in the Antarctic but not the Arctic.

Maybe that lying mushwit, Michael Mann has an answer. He seems to be running his mouth about Climate Change all the time. Come to think of it, so is Obama and Gore experts on this matter. They most likely can provide a couple tons of BS to confound the situation.

Thousands of penguin chicks starve in Antarctica

Mass starvation has wiped out thousands of penguin chicks in Antarctica, with unusually thick sea ice forcing their parents to forage further for food in what conservationists Friday called a “catastrophic breeding failure”.

French scientists, supported by WWF, have been studying a colony of 18,000 pairs of Adelie penguins in East Antarctica since 2010 and discovered only two chicks survived the most recent breeding season in early 2017.

They attributed the disaster to extensive sea ice late in the summer, meaning the adult penguins had to travel further to find food, with the chicks dying as they waited.

Yan Ropert-Coudert, senior penguin scientist at Dumont D’Urville research station, adjacent to the colony, said the region was impacted by environmental changes linked to the breakup of the Mertz glacier.

“The conditions are set for this to happen more frequently due to the breaking of the Mertz glacier in 2010 that changed the configuration of the stretch of sea in front of the colony,” he told AFP.

“But there are other factors needed to have a zero year: a mix of temperature, wind direction and strength, no opening of polynya in front of the colony.”

A polynya is an area of unfrozen sea within an ice pack.

He added that the coming season seemed to be better for the birds in terms of sea ice “but we never know how it will turn unfortunately”.

Surviving mostly on a diet of krill — a small shrimp-like crustacean — Adelie penguins, slick and efficient swimmers, have been generally faring well in East Antarctica.

But they have been declining in the Antarctic region more generally where climate change has taken its toll, with shifting ice reducing habitat while warming seas affect their prey. [snip]

All these holier than thou people either live in gated communities or have armed bodyguards. Just like Jimmy Kimmel says from his phalanx of armed bodyguards, “We need to ban guns.” Of course Jimmy, except for your protection.

Atlantic Editor: You’re A Bad Parent If You Own A Gun

[snip
] LAWRENCE O’DONNELL: The polling shows that most Americans agree with the congresswoman on this.

DAVID FRUM: Well, I wish that were true, but I think when you face the reality, it just isn’t. One of the things that we have seen over the past decade is a rising support among Americans for ever broader definitions of gun rights in exactly the way that Justice Burger warned us against. But that it where the country is.

And so it makes this — and this is a really painful thing to say — these technical fixes people look for, maybe if we had banned this implement or regulated that implement — there is something very wrong with the American gun culture. Three percent of the people own 50 percent of the weapons in this country — I mean, a tiny number of people and vast numbers of weapons.

Until you persuade people that it is just dangerous to themselves, to their children, you’re not a good parent if you have a gun in the house, you’re not protecting your family, you’re a bad parent if you have a gun in the house, until you drill that idea into people’s heads and persuade them to change the way we changed about cigarettes and seatbelts, these technical fixes aren’t going to accomplish a lot. And pubic opinion — you can make it look like it’s on your side if you ask the poll question the right way, but operationally it’s not.

Yeah, I’m sure that’s really going to go over well; telling Americans that they’re bad parents for exercising their constitutional right to own firearms. If anything, that will drive up sales. The firearm is an integral part of American culture and history. There is no escaping that, neither is the incessant push by liberals to blame the tens of millions (the overwhelming majority) of law-abiding American gun owners for the actions of criminals and insane people. Yet, the anti-gun Left keeps doing it, Americans still buy firearms in record numbers; Obama was a terrific salesman, and the Second Amendment stands strong.

Who knows, he might even have a carry permit for his own protection. The old “For Me, not for Thee” BS they much favor.
