I saw that on TV. Was he sober ?
I heard the introduction, and I thought he was going to make a point about Guam tipping over to something bad. It is a small island. 8,000 marines and
their dependents would drastically change the atmosphere.
But when they played the clip, it was clear to me, I think he meant it literally.
The island might capsize.
Are these people really the best we got? I'm sure positive that stupidity in our government, top to bottom, is widespread. Not just lack of
knowledge about certain topics, but flat out stupidity.
I guess it is fortunate for us that out government is basically on cruise control. It doesn't take a genius to take kick backs from corporations and
vote the way CEOs want them to.
...and yes he was serious, which is perfectly clear if you watch the entire video of the discussion with a Navy Admiral where he made his "tipping
It's not like the Admiral's response is any better..."we don't anticipate that"
"That can't happen" could possible turn into a discussion of the physics of island tippage. It's best not to bog down with ignorant people and
just move on. The Admiral handled it very well actually. Don't argue with stupid people, they dont know they are stupid.
I saw this video twice. The first time, I didn't take what he said literally. I guess it didn't come to my mind as a possibility that someone could
be this stupid! Plus he talks directly after about issues with the environment. I initially thought this guy was making a metaphor for tipping over
the country from an economic and environmental POV. Nope, he's an idiot who thinks that the island will literally tip over and fall into the ocean!
