Does Global Warming Cause Hurricanes?

14 Sep 2017 /

Anyone who thinks global warming causes hurricanes should be required to explain in detail:

  1. the cause and effect mechanism they believe to be in operation; and
  2. what used to cause hurricanes before global warming.

The Perfect Murder?

Bathtub

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.


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

61% Say It’s Time for Hillary Clinton To RetireRasmussen 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 . . .

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!

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 a coma and died, was “typical of the mindset of a lot of the young, white, rich, clueless males who come into my classes. Is it wrong of me to think that Otto Warmbier got exactly what he deserved?”

I’m going to say yes, thinking that certain people deserve to be killed for their immutable qualities is wrong.

A Google search reveals that Kathy Dettwyler, while maybe not rich, is white and clueless, and must have been young at one time.
