Doomsday Proggers

We’re heading to war with Iran! Innocent soldiers will lose their lives because President Donald Trump is trying to distract people from impeachment/a dictator/an immature adult/a toddler with access to the nuclear codes/whatever the anti-Trump line is today!

Not to mention, the world is on fire! Australian forests are ablaze because we didn’t take climate change seriously! Now, there are millions of people and animals dead, injured, or without a home! If only we had listened to Saint Greta Thunberg and done something!

And going back to President Trump, he’s impeached and is an existential threat to the world because he’s unstable! He’s destroying our democracy with his criminal activity and rampant racism/sexism/xenophobia/homophobia/transphobia! He needs to be brought to justice before the world explodes!

Over the past few years, we’ve heard more doom and gloom from the Left than a heavy drinking pessimistic Nostradamus after reading Sylvia Plath. Whether it’s climate change or the potential for war with any number of countries in the world or just America in general, the Left never seems to give us the benefit of the doubt. If anything, they think we’re the scum of the Earth, an inept bunch of bunglers who can’t seem to do anything right (and should try to do everything Left). To the Leftists reading this, let me give you a piece of advice.

Shut up. We’re not doomed today any more than we were yesterday, and if you’re paying attention, we made it to today just fine without being destroyed by whatever you think was going to destroy us yesterday.

Let’s face it, the Left went from “Hope and Change” to “Hope We Don’t Die.” This is because the Left isn’t hopeful or optimistic at all. They see everything as a failure that only they (i.e. big government) can fix, so they have to be in a constant state of despair to give the impression things are worse off than they actually are.

That’s one of the reasons I became a recovering Leftist. I try to see the good in the world, but being a Leftist made that impossible because if you believe everything is on the verge of collapse, anarchy, and destruction, you kinda lose the joy of life. Being that down about everything is tiring, as is trying to keep up with the Oppressed Person/Culture of the Day and the squawking points that accompany that. But it’s not serious. I mean, if it were, Hallmark would be the first ones out of the gates with “Sorry the Planet Is on Fire” or “Sympathies for Being a Victim of the Wage Gap” cards. (By the way, if anyone from Hallmark is reading this, let’s collaborate on this idea. I’m good for a lot more ideas like those!)

The reason why the Left is a bunch of Negative Nellies is simple: control. Through manipulating how people feel about what they believe are vital issues, they can control how the people react, usually by voting for Leftist candidates and devoting time, energy, and above all else money to Leftist causes. Yet, while doomsday is being whipped into a lather, the Left has yet to deliver. Climate change? Only left-leaning pseudo-scientists and their spokesbots still believe “the Earth has a fever.” Gun violence? For all the attention mass shootings have gotten, the stats don’t bear out the crisis the Left says is happening. War with Iran? It’s still early, but so far signs point to the same result as the wars that were supposed to happen if we provoked North Korea and China, which was…no war at all. It’s almost as if…now hear me out…the Left sucks at predicting the future. Remember when Paul Krugman predicted the Stock Market would tank if President Trump was elected? Didn’t happen! People dying due to repealing Net Neutrality? We’re still waiting on the body count, but from what we’ve seen so far, it’s been a big goose egg. What about the people who would be dying in the streets if we pulled out of the Paris Climate Accord? Ooooh, sor-ray. Not a one.

Sooooo…I gotta be honest here. I’m not seeing a reason to get worked up this time. Just like Al Gore buying up beachfront property with money he made talking about how sea levels would be rising, the actions (and doomsday predictions) don’t match reality. Which, ironically enough, is completely predictable.

The funny thing about the Left’s predictions about war with Iran is they echo the same predictions that Ronald Reagan would be getting us into WWIII by provoking the (now defunct) Soviet Union. At least they recycle their bad ideas, but it should bear repeating they were wrong then and they’re wrong now. Of course, if we get into a war with Iran, the same Leftists who are so concerned about our troops dying will be among the first to demand we get out of a war their ineptitude got us into in the first place. And it shows how little they actually feel about our troops. If we get into a war with Iran, we have the upper hand because, well, we have all the cool toys and the manpower to accomplish the three basic objectives in war.

1) Kill the bad guys.
2) Break their stuff.
3) Repeat steps 1 and 2 until the bad guys surrender.

To simultaneously elevate and undercut our fighting men and women is a true skill only the Left could accomplish. But fear not, my Leftist friends, we got this. All you need to do is hold your anti-war rallies, pretend to care about Iran, and stay out of the way to let the military do its thing.

Oh, and cool it on all the doomsday talk, okay? Have a Pop Tart and watch YouTube.

The Right to Remain Equal…ly Miserable

In case you missed it, scientists have finally figured out what will stop global climate change, and it was right in front of us the whole time. Brace yourselves, because this is a major scientific breakthrough that will help generations to come. To fight global climate change, we need…equality.

Are you as shocked as I am? Of course, by “shocked” I mean “absolutely gobsmacked at the insanity.”

If you’ve read my previous posts on this subject, you know I’m a skeptical about the whole global climate change thing because the real science doesn’t back up the ohmygoddesswearegonnadie rhetoric. To be fair, though, the people who have pushed the latter narrative have only been wrong for the past, oh, 50 years, so maybe we need to give them a chance.

Then, they came out with this equality-as-a-climate-change-solution idea. At this point, they’ve burnt their last chance with me. Anyone who still blindly follows these nozzleheads will get mocked into the Stone Age.

Which is exactly where the eco-Left wants to take us. These folks tell us just about everything from eating meat to wearing clothes contributes to our carbon footprint, so it stands to reason they want us to devolve. Not them, of course. Just us. You see, the eco-Left is soooooo smart that they don’t need to follow the dictates they demand others follow. They’re the “Party of Science,” after all!

So, what does science have to do with equality? About as much as the eco-Left does with either.

Equality isn’t a term that appears in the hard sciences, but occurs more frequently in the social sciences because it’s more of a social concept. Also complicating matters is the fact equality is subjective. Let’s not forget people in this country believe white men have more privilege than anyone else, all while ignoring the advantages given to minorities (and majorities, in the case of women) over white men because of the assumption of privilege. Okay, I’m going to have to sit down for a bit after writing that last sentence. It was a real mind-bender to write.

Okay, I’m back. The point I’m trying to make here is the Left is now using social science to solve what they’ve maintained to date is a hard science problem. Although this may sound plausible on the surface because they’re both scientific disciplines, it’s hard to see how it would work in practice. If I drive a diesel fuel guzzling semi truck 6 days a week, but pay my wife the same amount of money for taking care of the books that I make driving, my carbon footprint doesn’t change, the rate and intensity of climate change isn’t impacted, and the problem equality was supposed to fix remains. No matter how many times this is repeated, the result is the same: nothing concrete gets accomplished. You may feel better about it, but the status quo will be maintained.

What’s the next step? Make things more equal? Give more to those perceived as having less?

Actually, that last one is the ultimate goal of the eco-Left. Hidden within any of their solutions to climate change is an economic component where the rich are expected to take on the lion’s share of the efforts to fix climate problems, whether it be through higher tax rates or out and out wealth confiscation. Why else do you think the eco-Left thinks America should be the one to change its economic system to combat a problem we’re already leading the world in addressing while other countries with less vibrant economies are allow to continue polluting without so much as a sideways glance from the eco-Left? They would rather make everyone equally miserable in the name of trying to control nature than to let anyone try to better themselves and succeed.

At the core of the “equality as climate change solution” notion is an emotional argument using “science” as a strengthening agent. By clinging to an idea Americans in particular hold dear (equality) and connecting it to an idea they’ve been trying to get off the ground for generations (manmade climate change), the eco-Left are hoping you overlook the inherent flaws in the argument and just submit. It’s the same play they’ve been running since the 90s, and they always seem to find new suckers to join their ranks using it.

The thing is scientists can be wrong and/or dishonest. Case in point: most of the scientists and non-scientists peddling the manmade climate change canard. Think about it for a moment. Out of all the dire predictions the eco-Left made, none have happened. And they know it. That’s one reason why they cook their own books, so to speak, to make it seem like they’ve been right all along. Just look at the lengths manmade global climate change guru Dr. Michael Mann have taken to avoid letting others scrutinize his work, even when ordered by a court to allow it. This begs the question of why. If climate change is real, dangerous, and occurring as we speak, the facts should back it up.

Spoiler Alert: They don’t.

And the eco-Left is scared people will find out.

Spoiler Alert: We know, which is why we doubt you.

And now with the new “solution” of equality, we have even more reason to doubt you. Oh, and laugh at you derisively.
