Default Re: More on Fakegate!

I actually don't talk much to people about their political views so I have found it very interesting to observe the stuff that has gone on in these forums and I think I have learned some things about the liberal mind.

Countless times (because I don't want to take the time to count) Ocean, the psychiatrist (I am thinking more like a receptionist at a psychiatrist's office) has chastised me for not wanting to engage in reasonable debate with her and her tribe.

I have really tried to figure out what we could be debating because what I get from this bunch is that they are convinced that there is something horrible afoot because all of their friends agree that there is, they are very concerned about it (although probably not doing anything about it) and anyone who doesn't think as they do is the most hateful sort of person on the planet. This is what debating people on the left is about. If you don't agree with them on their pet issues, that is the end of you.

However if you agree with them, then you can chuckle with your buddies about what an insufferable jerk that other person is.

And never in all of these posts has even one of these geniuses demonstrated the slightest knowledge about the science they claim to extoll. They are worried because people they like have told them to be worried. Ignorant, hypocritical and mean is what I have come, through my years at BHTV forums, to understand liberals to be.

So this will be my last post. But since I started out in the Gleick mode, I'll keep to that.
Back in 2001, water specialist Peter Gleick was quoted by a journalist writing about climate change for the US News & World Report. His pearls of wisdom?
The debate is over.
"By pursuing his own interest he frequently promotes that of the society more effectually than when he really intends to promote it." Adam Smith
