You sure do kill lots of puppies in your posts Beezzer.

Question for you too: is climate change i.e. global warming happening or not?


Does it matter?

Let's just destroy everyone that doesn't agree with you.

Certainly they shouldn't hold positions of responsibility.

Just tell us what to think, since you are right 100% of the time.

Thanks in advance,

Regards. . . .


Yes, it does matter. We are all arguing about what caused global warming and ignoring what we could be doing to lessen it's effects, making proactive plans to preserve our way of life as much as we can, etc. Yes, it's very important.

Cite one thing from any comment I've ever made that calls for the "destruction of those that disagree with me."

If not apologize for intentionally misrepresenting the truth.

You are trying, as usual, to change the subject by making extremist/absolutist personal remarks that are completely off-topic.

I am not the subject stop trying to make me the subject.

What's your answer, Beezzer, is global warming and climate change a fact or not? It's an easy question.

So, climate change is real and we are in a warming period. Good. Progress.

I'm going to ignore all your irrelevant expectorations on your opinion of the efficacy of government if you don't mind.

Global warming is happening; the effects on human civilization will be extreme; is your solution to do nothing? To gripe about the guvment? Are you going to be praying for deliverance from rising oceans, superstorms, and all the rest of it?

Or are you booking on a Rapture to just take you away, like Calgon?

I wish everyone would stop brow beating each other.

Not like I'm hearing much from you or Neo about solutions.

Why don't you two just take a step back?

Doesn't matter.

I'm not in charge.

Obviously, you don't like people who are in charge that think differently from you, you want them gone so you can have people that think just like you, because, (of course) you are always right and there is no room in your mind that you may be wrong.

Can you cite evidence of an effort to "raise taxes" to respond to global warming?

Feel free to ignore all that carbon-equivalency crap if you wish; that's nothing but a TBTB plot.

But, I'd be really interested in an effort to raise taxes to slow or stop global warming ... what are we going to do, bribe the earth and sun?

No, seriously, what are you referring to?

Please do tell how the highway system came back to bite us. You haven't so far you are just moaning on how it was done. BTW property taxes do not pay for federal highways so try again. Remember the subject is federal highways not local state roads.

Since you missed this here are some more. Please remember you said ones that didn't come back to bite us so please explain how each has come back on us.

Anyhoo.

Global warming? No, actually we're cooling, claim scientists

I think that everyone would be pretty much onboard with solutions if they didn't bring up carbon-credits or raising taxes.

It doesn't matter what I believe or what you believe or what they believe.

If it is common sense, then everyone should be able to agree on it.

Great peacemaking effort projectvm!

You have to give us time ... Neo has barely even admitted that global warming is happening!

How can we work out solutions before we both agree that something is actually happening?

Follow-up question: I haven't noticed any solutions, remedies, proactive plans, etc. from you, either, are you holding back?

Or did you just want appear beneficent and try to control the conversation?

Excuse me ?

Something the planet has been going through for over 5 billion years.

Mankind for blink of an eye of that time.

And mankind is still trucking right along.

It does matter. Change can start with people like you and me.

And how are you so different Beezzer? You're good at pointing that judgy finger at everyone else when you do exactly the same thing! Don't you think you're right in your positions? Don't you want people in government that agree with your positions? I've been reading you for 3 or 4 years and you're quite clear on which side your political bread is buttered, but you always want to point the finger at others .

Do me a favor, walk to a mirror, and point in the direction you're facing: that's where you can start to make a difference.

I'll answer your question after you answer mine.

Who is calling for "raising taxes" to combat global warming?

Do you mean those things that property taxes, and lottery taxes, and GASOLINE TAXES pay for ?

That was built by UNIONS that take ten times as long, and cost 10 times as much to build ?

Yeah I seen those.

That aren't all that, and a bag of chips.

So EPIC FAILURE on that so called 'accomplishment'.


Epic fail you say.

George Will called it “the most successful public works program in the history of the world." It’s hard to imagine the U.S. without this interstate highway system, and this system would not exist at all if it weren't for the government. The interstate system has the benefit of being considerably safer than the old two-lane highways it replaced – saving hundreds of thousands of lives. Even some conservatives have been forced to admit the success of this building program.

You need to cite some actual quotes from actual Republicans.


Oh, I do, do I? Thanks for telling me what I need to post. I'm new here and don't have a clue.

For who ?

The US government that gave itself the ability to mass mobile the military, and gave itself thousands of airstrips.

'Successful' eh.

In general, continuing research into what is most likely to happen and then recommending proactive measures.

What's the greatest threat from rising sea levels, for example?

What can we do to make our homes and businesses more secure in the face of more powerful hurricaines, tornadoes, storms, etc.?

How is our national and international commerce going to be effected by these changes? What can we start doing to reduce the impact of those changes on our economy?

Let's figure out what's going to happen and do our best to deal with it instead of playing dumbcrap games about who's zoomin' who.

That's a start from me Beez, how about you? Quid pro quo?
