Rush/English translation: Goddamn I love my job. I can say, quite literally, anything, and these stupid bastards will not only eat it right up, but will repeat it ad nauseum and defend the absurd bullshiat I feed them. To top it off, I get paid more in one year than most of my supporters will make in a lifetime, and yet they somehow believe I'm just like them and I care about them.

well...Rush is getting less coherent as we get closer to election time later this year.

They are going to genetically combine all three animals into one super creature. The resulting LigerShark will become the basis for a made-for-tv movie, and will air next Friday on SyFy.

so according to Rush Limbaugh - econuts want to kill off lots of humans in the mad belief that doing so will help the planet achieve some sort of environmental balance. Yet the Republicans are the ones who've been going around starting wars, and killing off lots and lots of people.

So...vote Republican?
 
2012-05-18 10:08:18 AM
As opposed to, say, the environmental damage that Rush Limbaugh does by being Rush Limbaugh? I used to think he would only be good for grinding up and using as fertilizer, but now I think that would actually poison the ground on which he is spread. Mow I think he will only find use as a plug for the next underwater oil well leak.

which is actually kind of funny. Rush said that environmentalists said that 'animals are perfect'. then he mentioned sharks....now, i'm not an econut but I gotta say that a shark is a damn near perfectly evolved critter. it's hard to kill, swims around and makes baby sharks..then it eats things and makes more baby sharks. it repeats that cycle pretty much forever, and it's been around for millions of years.

so rush limbaugh might have gotten that whole bit about sharks wrong.

Have you ever heard what the difference between liberals and conservatives?

Liberals want a world where everyone is be born equal, with the same opportunities and chances.

Conservatives think that world already exists.

//it IS true, technology can solve all our problems...eventually. Unfortunately, right now we don't really have a solid enough understanding of science. A little bit of knowledge is far more dangerous than pure ignorance: at least the ignoramus doesn't believe himself to be an expert.

Well, we already know that the earth can handle CO2 from fossil fuel, it's all the animals breathing that is causing the problem.

Funnily enough, by sheer random chance, Rush has actually almost hit on an issue here (although he's on the wrong side, obviously).

Scientists are actually working rather hard on isolating gut flora that can end methane flatulence in animals (from kangaroos, who have the quietest bottoms in the universe) and once that work is done, it will be spread into the greater environment.

Not only will it wipe out the majority of greenhouse gas production created by humans (through livestock farming), but also radically reduce the methane created as part of the non-human natural cycles.
 
2012-05-18 10:15:39 AM
You're right, Rush. You will pretty much never hear environmentalists complain about what lions do. If this confuses you, perhaps you should question your assumptions about the goals and thought processes of environmentalists.

Who am I kidding. There's no money in that. Rant about how the fictional environmentalist thought process in your head is inconsistent. It'll be fun.

I read some conspiracy site that contended the annual Bilderberg meetings for rich people are actually plotting sessions to bring about a world with only around 500,000 humans in it. Of course the rich people will rule this planet, and everyone else will serve them.

As insane as it is, I find it more plausible than a bunch of ELF people finding the means and determination to bring about a similar result.

Because it was shark poop that fouled the Gulf of Mexico, not an oil spill that could have easily been prevented.

Nah. I don't believe this. I think that the capacity for technology to create a perfectly sustainable system in perpetuity will never exist given the fact that resources on earth are finite. I suppose we could eventually go interplanetary, but will we figure out how to do that prior to running up against the limits of our own ecosystem? At this rate: no. But, the earth will keep on turning, animals will keep on evolving, way..way after we're gone. And then, one day, the sun will die, inflating into a red giant, and swallowing this planet whole. At that point, if we haven't left the planet to colonize elsewhere, no one will ever know we existed.

Really, what environmentalists are doing is trying to conserve the system as WE know it. And sometimes, they are misguided but they are on the right track. CONSERVATIONISTS (and I use this term to separate those who actually take time to see the system as a whole with scientific reasoning for redundancies and resilience), however, recognize that the system as we know it, including all of its biodiversity, provides essential ecosystem services that without our species will likely not be able to sustain life. Sure, we'll take down a whole mess of others with us when we go, but life will continue after us.

So, you might be tempted to say "Well then, so what, why bother? The planet wins in the end." And it's true, nature isn't fragile at all. Nature is robust. Human ecosystem needs are fragile. The end if we find the limit to these systems won't be pretty. War, famine, disease, etc. etc. All in all, that's worth trying to avoid, isn't it?

Obama winning would be the best thing to happen to the professional fearmongers and derpherders. Four more years of the President being near means four more years of constant publicity and ratings.

Rush is just a professional-level troll, but I've no doubt most of them are stupid enough to really believe all the anti-Obama nonsense. Which is probably fortunate for them, because if they possessed any self-awareness their brains would fry from the knowledge that the person they hate most is pretty much completely responsible for their success.

I'm actually all for weening ourselves off of Big Beef just enough where venison and bison meat can be encouraged. Wouldn't that be nice? Eating just a few more veggies and sustainable meat that's no where near as flatulent as a stupid cow? I like to think that Thomas Jefferson would approve of that.

I thought the "[liberals] don't BELIEVE in adaptation" was a particular gem.
Also how dare liberals think air conditioning is "unnatural".

Once upon a time, a radio talk show host had a slogan "words mean things". What's that? Rush said that? Oh, how embarrassing.

Yes but one must remember the story of Jesus distributing Wendy's Hamburgers. The Bible tells us to eat cows and fart.
