“It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.” ― Voltaire, The Age of Louis XIV
Established authorities are more interested in retaining their power and wealth than they are in finding truth. In such cases, the authorities will generally be very much on the defensive because they will feel endangered by someone who is questioning their sometimes deliberate mistaken beliefs. They will often stop at nothing to destroy those who are a threat to this power. Someone who can prove their ideas wrong is clearly a threat to that power and they will react strongly.
Antarctic land mass ice is increasing faster than the ocean ice shelf is melting. Artic Ocean ice is getting so thick that the US and Russia are both building newer, stronger Icebreaking ships to keep shipping lanes clear. The ice is building up fast and dropping the sea levels. – but don’t challenge Global warming.
“All cops are not murderers,” Tarantino told the Los Angeles Times. “I never said that. I never even implied that.
“What they’re doing is pretty obvious. Instead of dealing with the incidents of police brutality that those people were bringing up, instead of examining the problem of police brutality in this country, better they single me out. And their message is very clear. It’s to shut me down. It’s to discredit me. It is to intimidate me. It is to shut my mouth and, even more important than that, it is to send a message out to any other prominent person that might feel the need to join that side of the argument.”
That’s the left’s playbook, conservatives know it well. Shut the F up you raciest, homophobe, misogynists, pedophile! Got any other names to call me?
The GOP debates are being twisted by the Media, a point made very obvious by CNBC.
“Have you noticed that every one of these candidates say, ‘Obama is weak. Putin is kicking sand in his face. When I talk to Putin, he’s going to straighten out.’ And then it turns out they can’t handle a bunch of CNBC moderators,” Obama said, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“If you can’t handle those guys, I don't think the Chinese and the Russians are going to be too worried about you,” the President said.
This from a President who was interviewed by a woman who is famous for bathing in breakfast cereal while she eats it; she gave Obama a gift of green lipstick for Michelle, who she referred to as "his first wife". The President took it in stride, asking GloZell: "Do you know something I don't?"
Yeah Obama knows about tough questions. The GOP candidates handled the CNBC moderators much better than Obama has handled anything. Just do not ask about the economy, jobs, national security, Benghazi, Foreign policy, or anything of importance. Was Ferguson just a dress rehearsal for a police state? DON”T ask that question?
Global warming, Black lives matter, Police brutality … And the beat goes on, the beat goes on, Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain La de da de de, la de da de da … the politics is settled, I mean the science.
Just my thoughts for today.
