What Causes Hurricanes?

We can’t blame it on white supremacists? When we talk about a climate crisis this is what we mean. Our people are in danger. And it’s only going to get worse. We have no choice but to pass a Green New Deal. https://t.co/jbtnlvDsYH — Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) September 2, 2019 Read more →

Life Goes On

Trump went golfing as Hurricane Dorian threatens US CNN So what? I was jerking off while my dad died of a heart attack. No, I made that up. The point is, life goes on. Did you stop fucking your secretary just because your sister was in the hospital? Of course not. There was nothing you could do for her, just like there’s nothing Trump can do about the hurricane. Give me a fucking break . . . Read more →

Nuking Hurricanes

Axios (whatever that is) sat back and said GEEEEE, let’s see, what can we make up today to embarrass the President? Then they said, “why don’t we say he wants to bomb a hurricane, that should do it!” The media in our Country is totally out of control! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 27, 2019 I haven’t seen any evidence that the president suggested bombing hurricanes, but . . . The idea of bombing hurricanes is not new. According to National Geographic, “on October 11, 1961, the head of the U.S. Weather Bureau said he could ‘imagine the possibility someday of exploding a nuclear bomb on a hurricane far at sea.’” The habit of saying seemingly crazy ideas out loud is something, I think, to be encouraged. Ideas that must have seemed insane the first time someone said them out loud would include “Let’s put a man on the… Read more →

Does Global Warming Cause Hurricanes?

Anyone who thinks global warming causes hurricanes should be required to explain in detail: the cause and effect mechanism they believe to be in operation; and what used to cause hurricanes before global warming. Read more →

The Perfect Murder?

Realtor Who Vanished During Harvey Found Dead, Ex-Husband Arrested — Yahoo! News That probably seemed like a good plan at the time, murdering your former spouse under cover of a natural disaster. I bet that happens all the time. A woman is discovered drowned . . . who’s to know you actually drowned her in the bathtub ahead of time? I’d like to see ’em prove that in a court of law. That being said, I still think the best way to kill someone and get away with it is to push them off a cliff. Read more →

61% Say It’s Time for Hillary Clinton To Retire

61% Say It’s Time for Hillary Clinton To Retire — Rasmussen Reports I feel like this is something the whole country can agree on. Granted, 61 percent is not 100 percent but you have to take into account that 25 percent of Americans think the sun goes around the earth, nearly 30 percent of Americans ages 18 to 24 cannot locate the Pacific Ocean on a map and half the residents of Detroit can’t read. Hillary Clinton has come out of seclusion just as we remember the 16th anniversary of 9/11, and as both Texas and Florida are underwater, and all she wants to talk about is Hillary Clinton. This woman is completely tone-deaf, always has been and apparently always will be . . . Read more →

A University Professor Suggested Harvey Was Karma for Texas Republicans

Then — he was fired. The tweet, since deleted, from Kenneth L. Storey, formerly of the University of Tampa, read: “I dont believe in instant karma but this kinda feels like it for Texas. Hopefully this will help them realize the GOP doesnt care about them.” In a follow-up, he said that “good people” in red states like Texas and Florida “need to do more to stop the evil their state pushes.” He continued: “I’m only blaming those who support the GOP there.” Let this hurricane be a lesson to the evil people of Texas: Vote Democrat! Embed from Getty Images If you’re a university professor, left-of-center opinions usually won’t get you fired, but exceptions may occur. Another professor, Kathy Dettwyler, was fired by the University of Delaware in June for writing in a now-deleted Facebook post that Otto Warmbier, who was taken into custody in North Korea, then fell into… Read more →
