Apologies to doctor Sowell regarding the Title, but it does apply to his overall thesis. If you want to know what that is just click here.
This, however, is a little diddy about Climate Apocalypse.
Of the three people who read anything here, I suspect we all have lived through each and every one of the scheduled End of World scenarios beginning with Global Nuclear War. But for the sake of time, I want to present a bit of what is found, and linked to here, for your consideration. (H/T to John Nolte. Full Article HERE.)

For the record, I believe Climate Changes. Were we not taught that the Appilacian Mountains were carved out by Glaciers? Have we not accepted that the Earth has been everything from a hot gaseous ball, molten material and a world of Ice? The question is do Humans effect it? The answer is possibly. But as it stands we cannot define a problem. And, if you cannot define it then you cannot offer a cogent solution should there be one. Additionally, if you buy into Humans killing everything they touch then there are only two solutions. Kill all humans or Kill those humans refusing to change their behaviors in a fashion as we mentioned above has no definition. But let’s pretend you think such beneficial behavior can be defined, like buying brand new light bulbs instead of using the ones you have until they burn out then buying ones you’re restricted to because you’re too stupid to see the benefit of cost savings over the long run… and it must be imposed upon countless millions of humans right damn now… or else. Working from that point of view we must do three things. 1. Convert immediately to Nuclear Power. 2. Immediately Destroy China. 3. Immediately Destroy India. (Russia would be ‘on deck’ as would countless other 3rd World countries.)
The truth is that modern Socialists have co-opted the environmental movement and are using Climate Change Horror (No science, just simpathetic scientists who are conviced you’re stupid and they are not.) as a tool to convince useful idiots that the World would be a better placed if everyone just surrendered to Socialism and put them permenantly in control of Everything. Just ask Patrick Moore, the Founder of Greenpeace. (Better yet, read his book linked here.) Socialism is, of course, the ideology of Force and Acceleration, not to mention Class Stasis…Call it what you will, Democratic, Progressive, Liberal, Communist, Fascist or whatever name they want to call themselves once one of the previous is assigned the appropriate stigma. This is what we are facing, whether it’s being regurgitated by a 14 year old girl from Demark or an octigenarian ex-president of the United States.
That’s the Reality.
Is that an Option?

So there I was, Minding my own Scotch… and I get a message from X. In the most perfunctory way possible he made clear it was time for me to dig myself out from the secure comfort I’ve been enjoying and return to the fray.
Who am I to disagree?
I have to say right up front, it has been an exciting few months. From the ANTIFA-Facists to the complete fabrication of accusations used to slime a man who is far better than I, the Theater of the Absurd never ends.
The timeliness of X’s prompt is exquisite. It just so happened that I was struck by something so profoundly stupid that I was seriously considering putting my drink down. So let’s go there first…
A Gentleman by the name of Ruchir Sharma said the following on what used to be a go to network for business news;
“We may or may not believe in [American exceptionalism], but the financial markets have never believed in it to such an extent,” added Sharma, head of emerging markets and chief global strategist at Morgan Stanley Investment Management.”
Please read that again real quick.
I would ask Mr. Sharma what American Exceptionalism has to do with a booming economy? If he is speaking to Property Rights and the influx of foreign investment which is recognizing the United States as a Safe Haven for their wealth, then okay… maybe… but I’m not sure he is. I believe he is conflating the financial success of the current economic reforms, which are returning the United States to its position as the World Leading Economic Engine, with Freedom and Liberty of the Individual. I would then remind Mr. Sharma that it is the latter which constitutes “American Exceptionalism”.
Why is this such a big deal?
It’s a big friggin’ deal because the Socialist Democrats have been diligently dumbing down our population for decades in the hopes ‘educated’ individuals like Mr. Sharma will intentionally or unintentionally continue to do their work for them. Sadly, they have been very, very, successful.
However, in his defense let’s assume Mr. Sharma knows what American Exceptionalism is. Now let’s take the beginning of his assertion… “We may or may not believe in [American Exceptionalism]…”. I then have to ask who it is that does not believe in Freedom and Liberty of the Individual? You speak as if you know or this opening qualification would not be necessary.
Yes, yes… I know these people are out there Hammering away at the Malleable Proletariat but I like to have them on the record so we all know who they are which is why I ask. (One of the reasons I’ve been hiding out around the Barnes and Noble in Tyson’s Corner, aside from all the TOTALLY COMMON and super awesome Gang Rape Parties that EVERYONE has ALL THE TIME around the short hop to Bethesda, is watching how Trump’s mere existence is bringing these Socialist Democrat A-holes out into the open.)
So Who is it, Mr. Sharma, that does not believe in American Exceptionalism? Who is it exactly that does not believe in the Freedom and Liberty of the Individual and the power inalienable rights has unleashed upon the World propelling the United States to the most powerful country on Earth in just a short few hundred years? Who are these people who believe a person’s rights are bestowed upon them by Government made up of fallible, elitist, narcissistic beings and not God… or the Universe… or simply because they Exist?
It’s okay, Mr. Sharma, I know you can’t do this for several of reasons. 1.) You may be one of those people. 2.) You like your paid gig and wish to keep it by specifically not offending those fallible, narcissistic elitists who employ you. 3.) Both 1 and 2.
So allow me to say what I’m hoping you meant to say.
The Current Economic Boom occurring in The United States is substantially due to the removal of barriers upon the Engine of Capitalism which were erected by Socialist Scum as they believe it’s not ‘Fair’ that Free (er) Markets are so damned successful and restraining them is the only hope for their foolish Command and Control Economic Idiocy to catch up.
Giving you the benefit of the doubt, I’m sure that’s what you wanted to say…
Now we wait for Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg to retire and the ensuing melt down.
The Left is the proverbial ‘drowning man’… it’s going to get worse before it gets better.

We have reached a point that the Only way to Save the World is War.
The White House has made the case for Going to War in their latest Report.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory along with the University of California at Irvine calculated that the glaciers’ retreat may have already “reached the point of no return.” THE POINT OF NO RETURN!
If we don’t Invade China, Mexico, India, Russia and the entirety of Africa, address overpopulation by annihilating their populations and then install Free-Market Capitalism and Constitutionally Limited Governments while also eradicating Socialist Ideology from the face of the Earth every last human will perish because of Man Made Global Warming… Cooling… Climate Change… Climate Uncertainty… Inconsistency… Incontinence.
These Countries are the highest producers of CO2, the green house gas directly linked by consensus to Man Made Global Warming, and must be stopped Immediately… Forcefully… Violently.
Because of these Psychopathic Murderous Climate Offenders the Antarctic Ice Caps are melting and there is Nothing We can Do… nothing. NOTHING! NOTHING!
If we don’t do this RIGHT NOW the first Catastrophe will be a 4ft to 10ft, may be even 100ft, rise in Sea Levels! (Possibly even 1000ft or 2000ft or 1 Million Feet! We could flood the moon! We just don’t know!)
Blood for Beaches!
I for one will Not Stand By living on a World that might not, possibly, be exactly in the same temperature range as it is right now… today… not yesterday or even a hundred years ago… but this very moment (I would want a consensus on that).
I Expect it to stay exactly as it is right now! And I’m willing to kill to keep it that way! (Not really, But I would absolutely ask those people in those CO2 Producing Countries to Kill Themselves. Voluntarily. Oh, and I prefer a temperature range between 75 and 84 degrees and sunny. Calm winds. Low Humidity. No bugs… can we do something about bugs? I hate bugs.)
Invasion is our only Hope!
The Earth Depends on it!
Polar Bears Depend on it!
Even you depend on it, not that you matter that much.
When we’re Finished with that…
The Sun is Expanding and We will all be Consumed by Fire, because Humans are Evil, Self-Centered, Greedy, Individualists.
(I vote we throw in France to the above World War. I realize they’re Nuclear, but it would be easy added value.)
Can we at least get a selfie with a Pound Sign followed by something clever scribbled on a piece of paper?
