“STATE OF TRUTH” FELT

A dissenting view is denounced:

Adriane Carr, deputy leader of the federal Green party, is perplexed as to why the Kamloops-Thompson school district plans to show its secondary school students The Great Global Warming Swindle

“You don’t have a demand to show the other side of slavery or mass murder or drunk driving,” she said. “Some things we just know are true and we go from there. We feel we are in a state of truth [on global warming] and we need to get on with trying to solve the problem.”

    1. It’s almost as if the ages of reason and enlightenment had never happened.

    1. Slavery existed, it was a fact.  Global warming materially caused by human activity, however, has yet to be established as a fact.

      To the left, when something important cannot be established as a fact, one must go to one’s feelings.

      Hmmmm.  Ok, let’s try it.

      I feel that we are in a state of truth that leftists are a bunch of panty wasted lolly dolls.

    1. Ms. Carr should solve her own problems, which lead her to such a delusional state.

      Cut back on the medications ?

    1. A “state of truth” must be semantically equal to “truthiness”.

      At least to the greenies, anywho.

    1. Holy bleep!

      Cue the sound of jackboots down the main boulevard.  That is really frightening.  And so, do you still want to teach Republicans a lesson?

    1. A “state of truth” sounds so tellingly close to being in a “state of grace,” as if we needed further evidence that this is religion, not science, we’re dealing with here.

    1. State of truth, my ass.  Equating slavery or mass murder or drunk driving (all man-made activities) with something like global warming (clearly a natural cycle) is more like the state of blind stupidity.

    1. Ignore it, the dumb bastards are still touting 1998 as the “previous warmest year on record.”

      It’s now 1934, guys. Try and keep up, huh?

      Yeah, Adriane – like the truth that you farkin’ Lefties are INSANE.

    1. #10 You sure her deep feeling’s not the tickle of Bob Brown’s member ‘from the lower house’ in the back of her throat? Because that’s some deluded jism she’s gagging on there.

    1. “To the left, when something important cannot be established as a fact, one must go to one’s feelings.”

      It’s simpler than that. On the Left, the distinction between facts and feelings does not exist. If you feel something strongly enough, it becomes true. Hence Ms. Carr’s bafflement that people continue to disagree with her. How can you possibly doubt the truth of global warming? She and her friends just know it’s true; therefore, it is. End of discussion. Stop denying the truth and get on with trying to solve the problem!

Not that there’s anything wrong…

    1. Kae, it’s less to do with sexuality than a quick and efficient method Bob’s found to inseminate disseminate his ideas to the faithful.

    1. mojo, as in a previous post, I’ll temper what you said.  The adjustment was to US data, not global.  1998 remains the hottest year, though (as before) insignificantly more so than 1934, before anthro global warming.

      You have given no thought whatsoever of Muslims, for centuries and STILL involved in trafficking of Africans? You don’t give a damn.

      You have given no thought whatsoever to “mass murder” of Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Saddam Hussein and Islamists? You don’t give a damn.

      Drunken driving, while it will kill people and not excusing it, for the loss of a family to drunk drivers, such as mine, is not on the same scale of the first two (there again those of us that have gone through said deaths think it is)…You don’t give a damn.

      Gorebal Warmering only, eh?

      You silly one celled brain, bitch.

    1. It’s just amazing, when considering threads like this one and the Moonbat one above, just how much hysteria is being generated by something which hasn’t actually happened yet. I mean, there’s a theory, sure, but NOTHING YET HAS HAPPENED! Temps are the same as they were 70 years ago, there’s no documented evidence of increased extreme weather frequency (plenty more media reporting, but that’s not the same), no sea level rise beyond normal. Yes, it appears fractionally warmer than it did two hundred years ago – where there’s good evidence to suggest that was a cool period relative to the Middle Ages and the Roman Warm Period before that – so one can hardly be surprised to see some evidence of that. As for catastrophic, or even plain detrimental, consequences from such minor climate oscillation, however, NOTHING!

      Look, if some real evidence comes to hand, I’ll listen. There’s enough, at the moment, to warrant close observation and ongoing scientific research into the mechanics of climate change. It’s all very well to say prevention is better than cure, but these hotheads are asking for the equivalent of a leg amputation because they’ve seen a suspicious mole on the foot. It’s crazy.

    1. #3 Harry, I have already written to demand an aopology as I have never owned a single slave and I have not committed even one mass-murder.

    1. “You don’t have a demand to show the other side of slavery or mass murder or drunk driving,”

      I dunno about that. If my child came home from school having been only taught one side of the history of slavery, or if a judge only allowed either the defence or the prosecution in a mass murder case, I’d cry foul.

      You didn’t really think those metaphors through, did you, Adriane?

    1. I had a good feel of a state of truth last night,too. It was warm and moist and . .

      2 Minutes later I was asleep.

    1. #19 and 20,
      For litigation purposes you might want to consider two other law firms.  The first is the one Groucho Marx used: Schrechlichkeit, Schrechlichkeit, Schrechlichkeit, and Meyer.  The other is the legal counsel for the magazine “The American Spectator”: Solitary, Poor, Nasty, Brutish, and Short.#24 Vexorg,
      That used to be a joke, now it’s the justification for Castro’s tyranny.  “But the Cubans have national health care.”

      A friend of mine with experience traveling in Italy once commented that if Benny the Moose actually had made the trains run on time it would have made him the greatest administrator in Italian history since Caesar Augustus.
