Not hyperbole. Canada is a large wealthy nation very similar to the United States in many ways. Why is it always expected to take a back seat while America is always expected to be in the driver's seat? If Trudeau is a better leader then Trump, then why isn't Trudeau and Canada more involved?

There's a difference between criticizing and relentless obsessive over the top attacking. I'm not taking about you when I say that. I mean the whole syndrome overall. It's a matter of level and frequency and attitude.

"Global Warming" is definitely occurring.

The real question: is this primarily caused by natural, inevitable climactic variation, or is this primarily caused by man-made elements (e.g., CO2 emissions, particulate pollution, aerosols, etc.)

In the past millennium (1000-2000 AD), we had both a "little Ice Age" (circa 1500-1800 AD) and a decent warm up (around 1200 AD). None of these could have been caused by man-made agents.


There is a long history of climate change, but the ones wanting to regulate the sh!t out of anything that theoretically may attribute to climate change are tree hugging anti-capitalists which speaks volumes.


I'm sure there's a history of climate change. I'm just not sure what it adds up to, if anything.

From purely subjective point of view, when I lived in Las Vegas there was all the stuff I kept hearing about Lake Mead water levels being so low compared to the 80's and how that was such dramatic proof of global warming. Then I saw a picture of Lake Mead from 1955 and the water level was just as low then as it is now. And this year it's starting to rise again because of record rainfall and a huge snow cap in the mountains.

Maybe god is a liberal and that's why there's been torrential rainfall in the west.

Here's my theory:
For 70 years in the late 1600’s there were virtually no sunspots. A phenomenon we now refer to as the Maunder Minimum. That same time also corresponds to the Little Ice Age. And during that same time period all the great composers of Baroque music lived, composed and performed. Including Bach, Vivaldi, Haendel, Zelenka, Buxtehude, Scarlotti and many others. Which proves conclusively, (by correlation) that climate change is caused by the absence of Baroque music.

Could you come up with a new shtik ... I get it: anyone who doesn't like Trump is insane, addicted to hatred, or a crybaby.

Trump, of course, has no flaws.

No you don't get it.
If I wasn't clear enough, it's the unprecedented level of unacceptance of a newly elected US president. And no, the birther movement can't hold a candle to what we've seen with the riots and other forms of crying.

Only because most Trump voters have jobs and businesses to attend to and don't rely on the government or their parents to support them like Obama (or Hillary) voters.

That's because of the unprecedented inappropriateness of Trump as POTUS.

That's an absurd generalization and I'm sure you know it.

I think the level of protestation against Trump is not so much against the Conservative Party as it is against Trump himself. If someone like, say, Jeb had won, there wouldn't be such protests.

Donald Trump might very be an uncultured boorish lout but his is as sane as you or I are sane.

The problem I see with that analysis is how much hype has been poured into flipping out over Trump's entire staff as well.

Liberals created the climate which made Trump's election possible.
You people made your bed now lie in it.

Yeah right, it's liberals that run the businesses and keep the machines running while those rabble rousing lazy career student conservatives have nothing better to do than attend protests, riots, and inaugurations.
What was I thinking... :roll: :roll:

Wasn't it people like you that screamed bloody murder whenever ANY republican presidential hopeful reared their heads? Republicans like Romney, Bachmann, Perry, Bush (any of them), Cruz, Palin, Santorum, or Cain don't look so bad now, do they?
