At this point I would honestly love to go back to the 80s when we could pretend we didn't have any problems

Right, back to the carefree days of the AIDs epidemic,  Crack babies, Iran/Contra  and here in the PNW the first big wave of Californication.

My Dad talked about some guy from California buying a place in N. Idaho. People couldnít believe it when he had the bad manners to put up No Trespass signs up. No one had ever heard of such a thing. The local culture on walking a straight line across the country to get where you wanted was more akin to the Scandanavian Every Manís Right. Dad and the other kids ripped down the signs until the guy gave up.

This would have been in the mid-30ís.

1980ís?

Best.

Well, if she is going to go there, I wonder her thoughts on capital punishment, universal healthcare, and immigration ó all relevant to the issue of ďsurplus population.Ē

She was a plant from LaRoushe PAC and her rants were a riff on Jonathan Swift's "A modest proposal"

Alright, I actually read the story elsewhere and didnít click the links. Of course, the second link couldnít make it any easier. My initial reaction was that she was a plant. This out to backfire nicely. Hyperbole should only be used by someone who knows what they are doing.

This was just last month:

A Swedish scientist suggested the climate crisis could lead people to consider eating human flesh.

Well it's hardly a proper apocalypse if people aren't eating each other, and everybody seems to love a good apocalypse on the horizon these days.

Extinction Rebellion isnít about the Climate

No, it's about all the same old SJW crap.  It's the Green New Deal story all over again.

Aren't those the guys who tried to spray Parliament or some government structure. I would say they may not be focusing their time and energy in the right places biggrin.gif biggrin.gif They did provide an amusing 20-25 seconds though.

Lol.  The firehose getting away from them was maybe not their finest hour, but definitely entertaining for the rest of us.  And they keep gluing themselves to things...which doesn't seem that inspiring either.

I'm not aware of any eco friendly glue that is strong enough to glue one piece of paper to another piece of paper, let alone a human being to any other object. hmm there might be a story there.
