Since We're Piling On

Since right-wingers like Thomas Lindaman can't use science to back up their claims, they instead use sloppy lying demotivational posters.

Too bad it took them so many years to figure out how to make them.

For example, here's a demotivational poster posted on the Republican National Committee's official Facebook page. It features President Obama eating fried chicken and encouraging interracial marriage to be prohibited. It stayed there nearly a week before the backlash forced them to grudgingly remove it:

And yes, it's typical of their mindset: http://rawstory.com/2009/10/vitter-refuses-condemn-judge/

That story, which also features a couple of other demotivational posters perfectly illustrating conservative ideals, can be found here: http://rawstory.com/2009/10/gops-facebook-photos/

Man Made Climate Change - Never Was A Debate

In typical conservative fashion, right-wingers like Thomas Lindaman are trying to take those hacked emails from the United Kingdom's Climate Research Institute and twist the wording to make it look like man-made climate change is a falsehood.

Never mind the fact that the email word-twisting has already been debunked.

Yet again, the right-wingers are trotting out that there's some big conspiracy among scientists. Anti-intellectualism at its finest, folks.

It's kind of sad, really. After all, they can't exactly use scientific research as a counter-argument, can they? That's because man-made climate change isn't even a controversial topic except in the United States of Jesusland. What's funniest, is that there's absolutely no evidence whatsoever that Jesus ever existed. None. Zip. Zero. Yet the very same people who ignore the overwhelming scientific proof of man-made climate change, embrace fairy tales as fact.

It's kind of like how the creationists say "evolution is just a theory." They don't understand the difference between a scientific theory and the general term for theory. Same in this case. They don't understand the scientific terminology and jargon used in the emails (or they DO understand it and are just blantantly lying about it).

It's very amusing hearing them try to say "The Debate Is Over." There was no "debate". You can't debate man-made climate change any more than you can debate "2+2=5". This is another common tactic, though. By attempting to pass laws to "teach the controversy", they're acting like there was a debate to begin with.

Remember, there was a time when the right-wingers were denying climate change of any kind. Now they're forced to say "Well, there is... but man has nothing to do with it!" They just don't understand that when something goes against the grain of scientific research, it's embraced in the scientific community. It's EXCITING to discover findings that are new. There's no mass conspiracy among scientists any more than there's a mass conspiracy among Hawaiians.

Right-wingers thrive on embracing ignorance. By telling their retarded base that scientists are just a bunch of liars and their fairy tale Jesus created everything and God wouldn't let the earth be harmed by humans, that makes their idiot base feel smart. "Hey! I know nothing about science! But they're wrong, so I'm just as smart as they are!" And they fall for it everytime. How else do you think they manage to get the poor rednecks to constantly vote against their own interests?

Watching them refer to man-made climate change as a "debate" is like watching the brats at the kids table wanting to be a part of the adult table at Thanksgiving. Sorry, conservatives... not yours.

You folks can continue to worship your fantasy zombie messiah, and let the adults handle the science, allrighty? Kthnxbye.

KSM - Why Oh Why?

Why oh why are we giving 9/11 masterminds and Khalid Sheik Mohammad a civilian trial?

Oh, that's right... because they are civilians. We didn't catch KSM on the battlefield. He was extradited from Pakistan. He's a civilian. Why would you charge a civilian, non-combatant in military court? If you charge him, who COULDN'T be charged by the military? Why was there never an issue with every other terrorist we've tried and convicted pre-9/11?

Why did Conservatives not complain when the WTC bomber had a federal trial? Oh... that's right... we didn't torture the WTC bomber to get the info out of him.

Face it, the whole reason the Conservatives are against a civilian trial, is because they're afraid that their old torture campaigns will result in a technical acquittal, and their dirty laundry being drug out. The Conservatives screwed the pooch, and (as usual) they're now trying to redefine our country's laws to cover their own asses. Which, of course, is the goal of terrorism. KSM is being tried for crimes that are not related to ongoing military action. Guys who blow up a convoy or shoot at soldiers in occupied territory, DO face military trials. KSM is being tried for conspiracy to commit mass murder, among other things. There is nothing diminished about his trial or sentencing.

Treating it as anything other than an ordinary crime only gives the terrorists legitimacy. The magnitude of the crime means nothing. All accused are treated the same, that's the way the system works. So stop pissing your pants in fear, you gutless GOP cowards. Elevating people like KSM is exactly what terrorism is supposed to accomplish. He's not Magneto.

Of course, considering the special type of crazy that the Conservatives have been lately (cheering America losing, booing America winning), it wouldn't surprise me one bit that they secretly wish KSM would be aquitted. Because they know that even though that the only way KSM could be aquitted would be because of the GOP's torturing, they'll just spin it around and blame Obama for the aquittal... somehow.

For the last time, you right-wing lunatics: Stop trying to rewrite our nation's laws to cover your cowardice and incompetence.

That especially goes for YOU, Thomas Lindaman.
