rzrwiresunrise: Tortilla, brown rice, double steak, no beans, double grilled veggies, mild and medium salsa, guacamole and a daub of sour cream.

SO GOOD.


That's way too many fillers for me. Just give me steak, cheese, cliantro , and onions.

DoctorCal: Anyone who believes in global warming also tends to:

1. Own a TV but haven't turned it on in years
2. Ride a bike to work wearing spandex stretch trousers
3. Watch Japanese children's cartoons on a Mac
4. Appreciate the warmth of vinyl phonograph records
5. Read books at Starbucks
6. Claim to prefer girls with small breasts
7. Make snide remarks about Wal-Mart.
8. Walk past a smoker and force pretentious coughing noises
9. Take comfort in believing size doesn't matter
10. Feign disgust at the idea of eating a Big Mac


1) Too much shiat on cable that make to ROI not worth it
2) Don't own a bike, I drive a gas guzzling V-8 truck
3) No. Just no.
4) Nothing wrong with vinyl - we have a dude who spins his old vinyl at the bar every two weeks. Everyone likes it.
5) fark Starbucks
6) I like almost all sizes of breasts
7) Yes, I'll admit, you got me here.
8) No, I don't ever do this. I was an on and off cig smoker for 30 years
9) Size does matter.
10) I love a Big Mac, sans bun - I eat a low carb diet

So, let us review: I believe in global warming, but I only fit in 3 of your 10 stereotypes. I believe your broad strokes with the paintbrush of derp you're wielding aren't doing a good job of painting your inaccurate picture.

But the libtards must make every effort to force new regulations upon everyone..

Climate change... Did the whole "global warming" thing not pan out for you dopes?


I'm guessing here, but you appear to have a room temperature IQ.  But in any event, CO2 is acidifying the oceans and the phytoplankton are in real serious trouble.  But you sound like you probably are related to a coal miner.  Burning coal is killing the planet.

What is the downside? Less toxic shiat in the air & water? More and better 'clean' energy? How is that bad????

The only thing I ever here is OMG Fartbongo crony capitalism! Like that is different from big oil how? And like coal & big oil etc. aren't ready to profit from any shift in energy production any way. I just don't farking get the right wing shiat fit. Please do explain.

I actually like coffee, so definitely not.

6. Claim to prefer girls with small breasts

I guess so?

7. Make snide remarks about Wal-Mart.

No snide remarks, I just don't shop there.

8. Walk past a smoker and force pretentious coughing noises

Nope.

9. Take comfort in believing size doesn't matter

Why get upset over something I can't change?

I've worked in a McD's kitchen, I know why I don't want to eat them. I don't find the idea disgusting, though.

Let me guess, you don't know the difference between Congress and the President? Obama's done a lot of shiatty things, but the real damage has had the full support of and been driven by Congress.

That said... how may Republicans have ever hinted that they might disagree with their tribal leader? Almost none? Yeah... that's because y'all are a cult of authority worshiping ignoramuses.

Man, I'd love it if there were some sort of test you have to pass to utter word one of an opinion on climate change.  It wouldn't be a difficult test.  All you'd have to do is be able to define the greenhouse effect, and describe to a reasonable degree the factors that control it.  This should be the minimum required to discuss.

A guy can dream, right?

K. So much wrong here. Your main, and apparent only, argument against clean energy investment is that a cartoon you once saw apparently oversimplified the cost-benefit analysis, and therefore in your mind everybody who thinks investing in clean energy is also a delusional simpleton that can't grasp the intense socio-economic trade offs that your keen insight so exceptionally grasps.

And to top it off, you admit that the simpletons you deride may actually be correct, or at least not wrong in believing clean energy is a quite possibly very wise and good investment. You just don't like the investment because of your perception of those advocating it. As depicted in a cartoon you once saw.

Really?

Much as alarmists call me a denier(or anyone who argues with them, even if it's a quibble about a specific statement).
Same way with someone with a different opinion in another thread is relegated to "troll".

I don't deny it exactly, but put forth that it's not anywhere near conclusive, certainly not proof.

For an example of the concept:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4eBmyttcfU4

http://www.stanford.edu/~savage/flaw/

The planet exists and supports life, within a range.  There is no summing up that range with a single digit derived from an average.  It's not that the means of averaging is flawed, that much is pretty straight forward.  But attempting to draw meaningful information from the result, is naive at best, dishonest or willfully ignorant at worst.

Also, GIS: xkcd extrapolate.

First, consider the earth exists in an endless cycle of heating and cooling. It cools then heats up and cools again. Pick one and you will never be wrong. Humans tend to be egocentricc and still can't accept the earth does not revolve around them. We are not listed as an item on the earth's agenda. We have adapted to fit into a niche in an eddy on the river of change and we exist for a moment in time. If we cannot adapt to meet changing requirements we simply go away.

The problem is the claim that humans are causing the earth to heat up and the only solution is radical and destructive economic legislation mandated in a false effort to save the planet. The real intent is to make trillions in profit for a select few. Penis. It is the charlatans which muddy the waters and creative interpretation of science to support their agenda.

Rejecting the premise of human caused gloabal warming does not mean a lack of respect for the planet. Only a person with nefarious intent or blindly gullible would foster that black and white distinction to distract honest discussion and discover points of common interest.

When people point out science foretold of global cooling in the 60s they claim that was based on old technology and irrelevant. Penis. Guess what will be said of the scientific claims made today, 50 years later?

there are evironmental proponents and there are extreme radical environmental proponents so be sure to make the distinction when you mention the gains made over the years. Already HCGW laws have been enacted by the feds and are in effect in all the states. Penis. Those laws generate cash and huge amounts of it and do little else to protect the environment.

It seems the HCGW folks have become the earths advocate against the pexistence of human life on earth as ecomomies, quality of life and mere existence are threatened.

We send our batteries to China for recycling and for years had banned chemical and insecticides here and sold them worlwide.... the feds treat the environment as they did tobbacco, condem it and at the same time raise funding to support it.
