Climate change, shlimate change. The whole screaming match is bullshit (that would be "bollocks" in Blighty). Not even Big Al (i.e., Einstein), could know whether man's activities had an effect that was beyond the limits of noise in the measured (and doctored in East Anglia) data. And recall, Big Al was the guy who told God what to do!

But even if man's activities do have a not insignificant effect, and if there was anything that could be done about it, it would first and foremost need to be done in China and India -- where, as you might have known, 36% of the world's population resides (and burns fossil fuel like there's no tomorrow).

So if the fanatics insist on agitating for their religious cause, let them take their fanaticism to China and India and break us a fucking give.

Have you seen this David?

JK,

I have read your linked article, in which Podhoretz is quoted as saying, “If Trump were to be elected, he’s not an emperor, he’s just one person, ... So to me, it’s just a no-brainer [he supports Trump over HRC].” This is technically correct -- the American President is not an emperor. But there is one power that the President has that no one else in the world does -- he alone can nominate a candidate for Justice (or Chief Justice) of the Supreme Court of the United States.

Yes, yes, yes, the Senate has the power to block the nomination. Nevertheless, no other person or entity can nominate a candidate. And, as I have stated before in these pages, that is the overriding issue in the upcoming Presidential election.
