"Congress sucks, but I'll take their word as gospel!"
 
2014-08-05 12:57:15 AM  
Ah, Congressmen, stalwart reflections of the good folks who vote for them, who form their opinions based on the moneyed interests who fund their campaigns, who shape the opinions of the good folks who vote for them.

If you believe anything coming from this Congress you're a complete imbecile

A question that was recently posed to me:
Do you think that evolution is a "fact"?

/No, I know that evolution is a fact.
//An example of a "fact": Louie Gohmert is smart. Example of a fact: Louie Gohmert is "smart".
///Did I get that stupid-use-of-quotation-marks-to-indicate-sarcasm thingy correct?

Really, subby? This is the damning revelation that we're farked? This is what opened your eyes to the reality of our current political climate?

Science? We don't need no stinking science.

I get my information from the National Academy of Sciences, but I interpret their data using the Bible.

Climate change is a foretold sign of the Rapture.
 
2014-08-05 03:39:53 AM  
Well I can't say they're better off getting their climate info from the news either.
 
2014-08-05 03:56:54 AM  
I thought for a long time that any congress person who knowingly telling not truth, while in congress on in any public speech should be prosecuted for perjury.

For obvious reasons.

Some of us recognize climate change, but just don't give a shiat. The most of Fark posters will be dead before the shiat really starts hitting the fan.
 
2014-08-05 04:39:46 AM  
I like how they say in tfa 'conservatives oppose environmental protection'.

I mean they do later note the issue is more nuanced... but hell, could it be any funnier?

'I hear there's both oil and natural gas under Rushmore... Think of how many jobs we could create if we BOTH DRILLED AND FRACKED..... Although I am getting real hot, cold, stormed on, and thirsty.

Meh, it'll pass, roll ti- COAL!!!!'

"It's not gonna affect me personally, just the people coming after i die. Why should i give a flying fark??"

This is why the world looks the way it does now, folks, and why we don't deserve to survive as a species.

I'm 24 and I'm pretty sure shiat has already began hitting the fan. I expect it to be brutal when I'm old, and quite possibly horrendous when I'm middle aged.
 
2014-08-05 06:12:22 AM  
The choice is the U.N. or Congress?  That's pretty steep competition.
 
2014-08-05 06:22:17 AM  
And anyway, I'm calling bullshiat. The reason we have congressnitwits who SAY they believe the science is because Republican voters won't let that through the primaries, no matter if you score a perfect 100% on every other purity test.

And if you don't believe me, you don't know Bob Inglis.

Note that behind closed doors, every one of the Republican leaders is investing their personal money as if AGW is real and will have consequences.

Meh.  Gore invests in oil and dumped his carbon trading stuff.  Kept the private jet and giant house though.  Still seems to think it's a good idea to burn fossil fuels (limited supply) and plant a tree to be carbon neutral.  Hard to think that his great-grand-children will think that was an equitable trade when we have lots of trees and no oil.

ALGORE! DRINK!!

Remember in 2000 when Democrats thought Gore was the shizzit?  Then he cheated on his wife and was begging for his private masseuse to release his inner chakra as his happy ending?  The polar bear fluffer was getting a bit frustrated.  That'll happen when even prostitutes assert "No means no!"

Philosophically speaking, if the person is dead, why should it care if the specie will survive? Let the deluge flow, no?

SOME people value, for some unfathomable reason, what will happen after their death, but should their personal desires dictate the public policy?

So, when your congressman says, "I'm not a scientist..." that kinda gives you permission to see what the actual scientists are saying.

And if you don't want to trust a bunch of scientists.
Maybe you go with the farmers.
Or the people in Ohio with no drinking water
Or anyone living in southern Florida.

What amazes me is that they still get frothy over a guy that lost to Bush...15 years ago.  A decade and a half the guy has been out of politics, and they still angrily regurgitate the talking points.

I mean, say what you will about Rush as a person, but that is some serious mental programming he's worked on the "dittoheads".

To the point where he can levy his influence to make the RNC chair apologize for criticizing his influence?  Yep, the guys who are out to fleece the rubes and make a buck are worse than the ignorant "true believers".

Do you know what I have come to believe about liberals?  I don't think they love America and want to make it stronger.  I think in their heart of hearts, they loathe America and want to tear it down and this whole effort on immigration isn't the naked grasp for political power everyone thinks it is, but is an effort to turn America into a failed state, just like ever single one South of us.
 
2014-08-05 08:23:29 AM  
Is the public taking its cue from Congress, or are Congress and the public taking their cue from something else (like, say, a disinformation campaign)? And, if there were, say, a disinformation campaign, could people be taking "cues" for different reasons?

Somehow, I really doubt that a study of surveys shows a causal relationship.

So let's suppose that AAAAALLLLL GOOOOOORRRRRE! took a wrecking ball to his mansion, turned the splinters to compost, let the land go back to forest and retired to a hippie commune.

Would you then trade the jacked up pickup truck with the penis extenders rising from the bed, the PRIUS REPELLENT stickers on the windows and the Truck Nutz® hanging from the otherwise-unused trailer hitch for something that gets at least thirty miles per gallon?

I almost edited your statement to say: "Maybe if we voted for people who believed understoodin science, our Congress would be more science friendly. Just a thought." but I realized that would be way too optimistic.

At this point I would be happy to have people who at least "believe in science".
