“Climate denial” — with all its Freudian overtones — has moved to the center ring of the linguistic fight over global warming. “Climate change has always been a kind of a framing war,” author and activist George Marshall said. “If you can get out there and you can get your language inserted into the discourse, it’s your ideas that dominate.” Marshall and co-author Mark Lynas published the first reference to “climate denier” in a 2003 op-ed. They wanted the label to sting. It did. And it still does.
“In the end, if you win the frame war, your opponents back off and they start using your language,” he said. “And then you’ve won.”
Common Core is not a benign set of federals standards meant to make your children smarter, warns an educator who says it looks more like an indoctrination program to push students toward “green” jobs for a “green economy.”
Several years ago I read a book I didn’t like. It was easy to figure out why I didn’t care for the book – I couldn’t understand it. Unlike most things written today (I’m sure I am guilty too), this book contained words and phrases the author placed together all on his own. In other words, it was original thoughts. Because our educational institutions have failed us, independent thought is missing from our culture. Note: I say our schools have failed because I see the failure as being the destruction through allowing and creating an atmosphere in which humans cannot question and draw conclusions on their own. It is not a failure if the intent is to create non-thinking robots echoing the cliches created specifically for them.
I doubt any field of interest is exempt from the bromide. I think the worst kind of platitude is one delivered from a position of moral superiority. Just today I received an email that had been forwarded several times before cluttering up my email box. The original message was from a fish and game organization, whose website states that: “It’s time for sportsmen to stand together.” This epitomizes an over-used cliche that achieves the lower boundaries of boredom. Because the organization is promoting their own membership with platitudes of self-perceived grandeur, the moral impact of this comes from the simple fact that the “stand[ing] together” must happen on their terms because of superiority of thoughts and actions. This, in and of itself, is terribly unoriginal.
But, I shouldn’t pick on just one organization. It’s everywhere: “we need to reach across the aisle;” “we need to get something done;” “it’s important to compromise on issues in order to get something done;” “it’s been done this way since the beginning of time;” “It’s for National Security;” “Think of the children.”
It’s enough to make one’s stomach roll. But I have my doubts as to how many can see and recognize the boring, meaningless words and phrases that they’ve had drummed into their heads since childhood.
Earlier today, I was also following a discussion about how, “there needs to be a law” in order to deal with people who are doing things somebody else doesn’t like. This is what has become of our thoughtless society. It matters not whether one person is being lawful or not. If another doesn’t like it, “there ought to be a law to stop it.” After all, it would be “getting something done.” Is that what is meant by that statement? If so, then should we then, “stand together” and “think of the children” as we “reach across the aisle?”
Even before the moment we reached an age that we began speaking words, our minds have been bombarded with cliches and boring, meaningless, truism – catch phrases that tickle our feel good buttons. We are clueless as to what the actual meaning is but how wrong can it be to state: “It’s time for sportsmen to stand together?”
I am reminded of when the German people, after years of deprogramming, were convinced they needed to stand together. Somebody forget to question what it was that they were going to stand together for.
I doubt that I can convince anybody new of the ideas that: Chemical aerosol spraying is ongoing and has been for some time; Anthropogenic global warming is nothing more than a theory; That to some saving the earth is more important than the inhabitants of the planet.
Look up! For crying out loud LOOK UP! It’s right there in front of you. Learn the truth about how condensation trails are formed and then ask yourself if those trails will last all day long. Also do some research to discover the increase in metals and other chemicals in our plants and soil. I don’t think that stuff came up through the ground from China.
I am sympathetic to you if you actually firmly believe and are not interested in gaining better knowledge about man-caused global warming. To claim the science is settled is really no different than Hillary Clinton deciding which of her emails she considered personal and which ones we should be allowed to see.
Perhaps the toughest pill to swallow would be if I told you that regardless of the truth or fiction of any of this, there are those that are very much willing to kill you to save THEIR planet…ahem, save themselves.
According to quotes gleaned by the website Collective-Evolution, the BBC writes: “Schemes to tackle climate change could prove disastrous for billions of people, but might be required for the good of the planet, scientists say.”
Dr. Matthew Watson, a PhD and researcher in the department of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol, says: “We are swimming, growing, in a sea of ignorance. This terrifies me. But doing nothing is not an option. Unless we’re very wrong about climate change or quickly change our ways, at some point we’re going to have to ‘go outside’ with these technologies.”
If nothing else consider this. This Dr. Watson admits that “we are swimming in ignorance” about global warming/climate change. He shows his own skepticism about the theories of man-caused climate change by suggesting that we might be “very wrong” about it. Yet, he eagerly suggests, even from a point of near panic, that we must DO SOMETHING even if it means destroying the atmosphere and killing billions of humans.
Other scientific studies, as linked to above from the BBC, claim that “schemes to tackle climate change could prove disastrous for BILLIONS of people” and Watson says that we can’t do nothing. And consider the last part of the BBC statement that says killing billions of people, “might be required FOR THE GOOD OF THE PLANET.”
There are two issues here that you, if you are capable, should consider. The first is this. You decide whether saving the planet, regardless of the truth or fiction about man-caused climate change is worth the lives of “billions of people.” To do this, you also must consider whether billions of people will die if “WE” do nothing. This, of course, requires honesty in one’s ability to think and reason and to be honest I don’t think it exists at any level where I would have confidence that enough people could do anything about it.
Personally, I don’t care what you think, but the second issue, if it doesn’t hit close enough to home, nothing ever will. If somebody is deciding that billions of people must be sacrificed to save the planet, convince yourself that you are NOT one of those billions of people. Go ahead!
If you cannot see the absurdity and the insanity of all of this, there is little hope that you would recognize anything based upon Truth. Can you? Will you? Do you even want to?
As I believe that I still have time on this planet and while here I need to find ways in which to support myself and my family, for those of you who are willing to “go outside” with this atmospheric chemical spraying to save Gaia, I’m selling aerosol cans filled with the same materials as they are spraying on us now from planes. It’s a home version and you can buy a case or more of it to help out those eager to kill billions of people to save the earth.
Directions are simple: Make sure all doors and windows are shut tight and commence spraying. Breathe deeply.
There’s also an outdoor version. Why wait for the shit to fall out of the sky? You can now get more of it around you more quickly by spraying inside and out.
Spray me! I want to live! Above anything else SAVE THE PLANET.
But I fully understand that, according to most, I have many screws loose. That is because you have been trained to piss on anyone who would disagree with the lies you believe. Conspiracy Theorists are a danger to society! Stamp them out now!
Below is the cover of Time for Kids, November 8, 2013, Vol. 4, No.9, Edition 3-4. The cover headline asks, “Are Gray Wolves Safe?” I want to ask, “Safe from what?” or better yet, my first impression upon seeing the cover was, are gray wolves “safe” for kids to be around? After all, do kids really care all that much about whether humans are going to not make wolves “safe?” Aren’t kids more concerned about whether they are safe from wolves?
But we are talking brainwashing propaganda! This garbage is given to kids in public schools all across America and that should nauseate all of us but we are brainwashed too.
So what about the article?
The article is very short and written with obvious bias, full of terrible misleading and non factual information. But what would we expect from propaganda, especially when it comes to wolves?
The article carries the name of Brenda Iasevoli as the author and relies upon information about wolves from only two people. Who? First is Dan Ashe, head of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. He told the author, “We’ve exceeded our recovery goals[for wolves].” And as far as any discussions or debates about whether “gray wolves are safe,” Time for Kids went to none other than that reliable source for everything gray wolves, Suzanne Stone from Defenders of Wildlife.
Need I say anymore?
Brainwashing works! What we are seeing more and more on a daily basis in America, are the results of brainwashing. Those administering the brainwashing (shall we follow that chain up the ladder to see where it all originates?) have done a splendid job. We are at a point now in this country where any mention of a damned gun and the programmed mindless go hysterical.
A girls softball team in Georgia needed to raise money and so they raffled off a gun. They picked an item they thought people wanted.(Give them an “A” for creative thinking, business management and entrepreneurial genius!) Some ran scared screaming blood shed and massacre. Consider this comment found on the Gateway Pundit’s site from one person who didn’t think the gun choice was all that good.
I just don’t think it should be based around any type of weapons or anything that can cause harm especially when you’re dealing with children,” [Diana Smith] said.
Then by all means let’s end all raffles right here and now. And while we are at it, let’s just ban “anything that can cause harm especially when you’re dealing with children.”[emphasis added]
God knows some fascists like Michael Bloomberg are trying to ban anything that can cause harm, but do you realize how long this list would be? If this was really about causing harm, then surely there are a lot more harmful things than guns. Let’s start with cell phones.
Where black symbolizes evil, I’m offering the best White Friday evah! Yep! You can subscribe to TomRemington dot com for free – a lifetime subscription if you wish. How? Look to the right. No, no the other right! Where it says “Subscribe”. You can just enter your email address and once a day you will be sent an email with a list of all the latest updates from this site, tomremington.com. And did I tell you it is free?
And, NO! I don’t save anyone’s email address for any reason. I will not spam or scam you. There’s enough of that going on everywhere else. Why would I do such a BLACK thing? All I am asking is that you be given a chance to receive the truth….for a change. Notice the lighthouse in the upper right: A Beacon of Truth. That’s all and it’s free!
But in all seriousness, the point is that in driving home from Thanksgiving at my daughter’s house last night, I saw the mislead, brainwashed, sick and perverted, non thinkers lining up at the stores to buy BLACK items from their BLACK god. I find it very sad and know that God in Heaven, our Creator, Yehwah, did not intend for his children to worship material BLACK things, hording BLACK fake money, and being just plain BLACK. I really don’t think “Black Friday” is named black Friday because, as is claimed, it determines whether a business will end up “in the black” at the end of the year. It’s called Black Friday because it is rooted in nothing but evil……in my humble opinion!
I want my life to be WHITE! How about you?
