Things That Liberals Like – Part II

June 6, 2011
By

Tattoos. Liberals like tattoos.

Not Miami Ink or LA Ink sort of tattoos but brand “climate deniers” like the Nazis branded the Jews kind of tattoos. Just a little tidbit from the Sydney Morning Herald by Robert Glover,  broadcaster, Sydney Morning Herald columnist, avowed global warmist and apparent tattoo aficionado.

Surely it’s time for climate-change deniers to have their opinions forcibly tattooed on their bodies.

Not necessarily on the forehead; I’m a reasonable man. Just something along their arm or across their chest so their grandchildren could say, ”Really? You were one of the ones who tried to stop the world doing something? And why exactly was that, granddad?”

On second thoughts, maybe the tattooing along the arm is a bit Nazi-creepy. So how about they are forced to buy property on low-lying islands, the sort of property that will become worthless with a few more centimetres of ocean rise, so they are bankrupted by their own bloody-mindedness? Or what about their signed agreement to stand, in the year 2040, lashed to a pole at a certain point in the shallows off Manly? If they are right and the world is cooling – ”climate change stopped in the year 1998” is one of their more boneheaded beliefs – their mouths will be above water. If not …

OK, maybe the desire to see the painful, thrashing death of one’s opponents is not ideal. But, my God, these people are frustrating. You just know that in 20 years’ time, when the costs of our inaction are clear, the climate deniers will become climate-denial-deniers. ”Who me? Oh, no, I always believed in it. Yes, it’s hard to understand why people back then were so daft. It’s so much more costly to stop it now.”

That’s why the tattoo has its appeal.

Now far a little dash of false equivalency so his idea seems so “fair”:

Not that the other side isn’t frustrating. There’s a type of green zealot who appears to relish climate change. Every rise in sea levels is noted excitedly. Every cyclone is applauded and claimed as a noisy, deadly witness for their side.

Based on the content of the column, wouldn’t Mr. Glover seem to qualify as a “green zealot who appears to relish climate change” ?

Global climate change isn’t science, it is a pagan religion.

Want common sense on global climate change? Go to Roy Spencer’s website. Dr. Spencer is a legit Ph.D. climatologist and a former NASA scientist. He puts forth one of the most common sense explanations of climate change that I have seen. Find it here.

But I’m an elitist – what do I know?

    If anybody is still interested in keeping this up, go ahead. It is almost 11 pm here in Edinburgh and I have early meetings tomorrow.

    I’m out.

  2. anonymous un-RINO on June 6, 2011 at 3:23 pm

    So lissen, troll… how many people do you wanna tattoo?

    We gotta start planning for this, if we’re to execute this grand envirowhacko nazi vision of yours.

    Will those to be tattooed have to come into camps for tattoo application? Will training be provided at the camps? That’d be the perfect opportunity to provide the proper envirowhacko nazi reeducation, you know.

    And we’d have to transport these ignorant people to the camps. They won’t just come of their own volition, you know. I suggest cattle cars. Sure, sure, you’ll probably say that’s too good for these ignorant global warming denying rubes. But Obama is killing off the livestock industry because of all the livestock farting and causing global warming, so the cattle cars are available cheap. So we’re good there.

    We can make it happen. The nazi envirowhacko indoctrination is just a memo away.

  3. rightwingyahoo on June 6, 2011 at 3:39 pm

    Bring it on, you goddamned lying communist pricks. Keep suggesting tattoos for people who disagree with you.

    Bring it.

    Bad timing on this story. 105 deg in Houston. All time record for June

  5. anonymous un-RINO on June 7, 2011 at 5:14 am

    It was 101 degrees F at the Port of Houston weather station yesterday, troll.

    That would be less than the 103 degrees F recorded back in June 1934, in the midst of the Great Depression, back when all those SUV’s caused all that global warming back then.

    You better go back to the nazi envirowhacko tattoo guns, troll.

  6. Paul on June 7, 2011 at 8:10 am

    It was 101 degrees F at the Port of Houston weather station yesterday, troll.

    Hilarious. The poster says that 105 degrees in Houston was an all time record for June, a 30 day period, but anonymous un-RINO thinks that a one day period (1/30 of a month) is more important.

  7. Paul on June 7, 2011 at 8:13 am

    90% does not equal 100%. Actually, it indicates a 10% possibility for error.

    Correct. And when your doctor says that you have a greater than 90% chance of having pancreatic cancer you are going to present him with that stunning argument?

  8. Paul on June 7, 2011 at 8:15 am

    Desperate, aren’t we?

    You seem desperate to smear the writer and all “liberals”. Your motivation is clear, but your argument is extremely weak.

  9. utahprez on June 7, 2011 at 9:01 am

    The point still stands and there is nothing that you can say or do that will change it. It is immaterial what you think, what you feel or how you act when someone tells you that they are 90% sure that something is going to happen. There is still a 10% chance that it won’t.

    To use your logic in the negative, if someone tells you that they are 90% sure that your lottery ticket will win 200 million, do you go out and write 200 million worth of checks? No, you don’t. You wait for absolute proof. “Climate change” is a far bigger lottery with the potential for a negative prize.

    If you are going to parse the author’s column, then you have to parse my words, too. I never accused anyone of actually being a Nazi. My exact words were “Not Miami Ink or LA Ink sort of tattoos but brand “climate deniers” like the Nazis branded the Jews kind of tattoos”, stating that the act of branding was like what the Nazis did, not that the people doing it were Nazis.

    The Nazi’s branded the Jews to identify them, as the author wants to brand “deniers” to specifically identify them. My statement is factually correct. Since I never accused the author of being a Nazi, you are inferring that from my words just as you claim that I am inferring the motive of the author – but I am not. The specific purpose of the article is to describe what he wants to do to identify people who disagree with him, he used a Nazi analogy to describe the tattoo location and wiggles out of the Nazi analogy by stating that maybe the tattoo should just be on the chest.

    I provided you the proof that Nazis first tattooed Jews on the chest because you claimed that the location proved that he wasn’t speaking of Nazi practice and I just stated that you and he were apparently ignorant that this argument was in question because of the facts.

    It isn’t a smear any more than claiming that educated and principled people who believe that there are other causes for climate change that should be considered before we crash economies or reduce the standard of living of the industrialized world are ignorant and worthy of your contempt and being branded like animals.

  10. Paul on June 7, 2011 at 9:14 am

    To use your logic in the negative, if someone tells you that they are 90% sure that your lottery ticket will win 200 million, do you go out and write 200 million worth of checks?

    I sure as hell would buy a lottery ticket if the chance of success were 90%. If someone said that there was a 90% chance that IBM stock will double in 5 years, I sure as hell am going to put 10 thousand in IBM. You lost, give it up.

    stating that the act of branding was like what the Nazis did…

    Uh, no. The Nazis branded Jews like they were inventory. The author above was thinking more like a tattoo so that history could more easily reflect on folly. Big difference. Unless, of course, your intention is to smear. You lost, give it up.

  11. utahprez on June 7, 2011 at 9:25 am

    You misstated my premise. I didn’t ask you if you would buy a ticket, I asked if you would spend 200 million on a 90% chance if somebody just told you that. You answered a question that I didn’t ask.

    Branding as inventory is still branding to identify. If I label something and put it in a warehouse, I am doing it to identify it for a future purpose or for retrieval. The author suggests brands to identify as well.

    His statement: “Just something along their arm or across their chest so their grandchildren could say, ”Really? You were one of the ones who tried to stop the world doing something? And why exactly was that, granddad?” would indicate that the tattoos were, in fact, seen by others to call attention to their supposed “folly” – to identify them.

    Again. My statements are accurate. Unless, of course, your intention is to smear.

  12. Paul on June 7, 2011 at 9:37 am

    Here is some material for you:

    http://www.canberratimes.com.au/news/local/news/general/climate-of-fear-scientists-face-death-threats/2185089.aspx

    Over 30 scientists being intimidated, including death threats?

    Isn’t that great? Now, let’s use your broad brush tactic to generalize to ALL conservatives…isn’t the game fun?

  13. utahprez on June 7, 2011 at 9:41 am

    Why don’t you run back over to Kos or HuffAOLPo or wherever you came from and tell them that there is a right wing smear artist at Polipundit… That’s what you are going to do anyway.

    Don’t hold your breath waiting for me to “walk it back” or change anything that I have written, I have nothing to apologize for. Every one of your allegations has been met with facts either explaining my position or refuting the allegation. That’s all I can do.

    Bring your lefty friends on over, we could always use more traffic.

  14. anonymous un-RINO on June 7, 2011 at 10:04 am

    Hey, go ahead and generalize all conservatives, troll. Be my guest.

    This global warming kookiness is being rejected by the mainstream. It only helps us with them if you kooks go berserk, and start talking about having to tattoo people who dare to disagree with you.

    I’m calling you a nazi envirowhacko because you’re providing me the ammunition to do so. But it’s the mainstream to whom you’re losing the substance of the argument. Try selling that global warming kookiness to them. Go ahead. Be my guest.

    Maybe you should threaten to tattoo them.

  15. anonymous un-RINO on June 7, 2011 at 10:08 am

    Oh and troll, you seem to have missed that the other troll lied about yesterday’s temperature in Houston. 101 ain’t 105, 103 is greater than 101, and the 103 was recorded 77 years ago, during the midst of the Great Depression, evidently having been caused by all those Ford Expedition SUV’s driving around back then, or something.

  16. Paul on June 7, 2011 at 10:12 am

    Here is just one link to many on why folks should be less than enthusiastic about Roy Spencer:

    lied about yesterday’s temperature in Houston

    You might want to walk that back:

    Try selling that global warming kookiness to them. Go ahead. Be my guest.

    I don’t have to sell anything.

    The out-of-balance Earth is doing that job just fine.

  19. anonymous un-RINO on June 7, 2011 at 10:47 am

    Sorry, troll, but the Port of Houston is the recording site of record, and it didn’t reach 105 yesterday.

    It did reach 101, however, although that’s not as high as 1934, when all those SUV’s were roaring about, during the Depression.

  20. anonymous un-RINO on June 7, 2011 at 10:48 am

    The only thing out of balance is you global warming kooks, troll. And the mainstream understands this about you quite well.

    You better get back to your nazi tattooing. That made more sense.

  21. Paul on June 7, 2011 at 10:56 am

    Port of Houston is the recording site of record

    Not according to the news sources, which all state record temp of 105 degrees. You had better start “selling” your version of the story.

    You better get back to your nazi tattooing.

    Grow up.

  22. Paul on June 7, 2011 at 11:02 am

    Record temps in Houston:

    http://www.weather.gov/climate/index.php?wfo=hgx

    Plug in June 5th and 6th.

  23. anonymous un-RINO on June 7, 2011 at 11:19 am

    No, that’s not the Port of Houston, the recording site of record, which tells us that the temperature was 101 yesterday.

    You know, the same site that recorded the 103 mark, 77 years ago, amidst the scourge of 1930′s SUV’s.

    And you can take your “news sources” back to trollville, with the rest of the nazi envirowhacko tattooists. I’m certain the mainstream of the country is taking the proper measure of you kooks, as it has with this global warming kookiness.

  24. anonymous un-RINO on June 7, 2011 at 11:23 am

    You know, we conservatives can only hope that you global warming kooks screech this nonsense at the top of your lungs, for the next 17 months.

    It does us no good for you kooks to do it in just the fever swamps… we need you to get the idiot lefty politicians to do it, out in the open, in campaigns, to remind the mainstream what you are.

    Is there some site somewhere we can donate to, to bring that all about?

    We’ll donate extra if you add in the nazi tattooing bit.

  25. Sal on June 7, 2011 at 11:29 am

    Port of Houston, the recording site of record

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    The “Port of Houston”, how convenient!

    Houston had a record temperature of 105 degrees, but you absolutely hilarious emphasis on “the Port of Houston”!

    If you bent over backwards further your forehead would slap the ground!!!!!!!!!!!

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

  26. Sal on June 7, 2011 at 11:29 am

    Houston had a record temperature of 105 degrees, but you place absolutely hilarious emphasis on “the Port of Houston”!

    BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  27. Sal on June 7, 2011 at 11:31 am

    It does us no good for you kooks to do it in just the fever swamps… we need you to get the idiot lefty politicians to do it, out in the open, in campaigns, to remind the mainstream what you are.

    Is this what passes for clever snark on this website?????????????

    If so, then BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. anonymous un-RINO on June 7, 2011 at 11:48 am

    Yes, but troll, can we get you lefty kooks to package your global warming kookiness into your lefty heroes political campaigns?

    That’s the goal here, you know. Get that crap out in the open where the mainstream can see you for what you are.

    It does us no good for you to just be kooky in those posts. Isn’t there some place we conservatives can donate to get you kooks out… loud and proud?

    We need it out in public, full volume, with all attendant nazi tattooing. ;-)

  29. Pluto on June 7, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    all attendant nazi tattooing

    Speaking of tattooing, you try soooooooo hard to get under the skin of “the trolls”, but never with any success. Only Mad Dog tries harder than anonymous un-RINO. The best you could do was the sophomoric phrase that you repeat over and over and over, but never with any traction: “your boy Obambi”.

    What’s it like to be marooned on stupid, anonymous un-RINO?

  30. anonymous un-RINO on June 7, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    Hey troll, lemme give you a little pro tip here. If you’re trying to make the point that it’s not getting under your skin, you can’t come in here whining, because then we know it’s getting under your skin. ;-)

    And maybe you can return the favor, and help us out here… how can we conservatives get you envirowhacko nazis to go into full out in the streets global warming kookery?

    If we upped your food stamp allotment, would that do it?

  31. Pluto on June 7, 2011 at 1:58 pm

    If you’re trying to make the point that it’s not getting under your skin, you can’t come in here whining, because then we know it’s getting under your skin.

    Except that I already knew what your response would be when I posted. You are like Mad Dog, if he can get a response then he thinks that he is succeeding.

    Lemme give you a little pro tip here, if you are getting under the trolls’ skin, it is because you are posting stupid.

  32. anonymous un-RINO on June 7, 2011 at 2:05 pm

    Hmmmm, so a minute ago, nothing was getting under your skin… but now you admit that it is.

    So let’s see. You’re an idiot, a troll, AND a liar.

    But let’s get back to business. Can we get you kooks out in the streets shrieking about your boy Obambi’s campaign platform, or what?

    Here’s my suggestions for your campaign shrieking, so the mainstream can be sure to know what you kooks love so desperately:

    * Obamanomics

    * ObamaCare

    * Global Warming Nuttery

    * Tripling the troop counts in Afghanistan and invading Libya on his own

    * Fox News. Gotta get that in there for sure. And Breitbart. Those are 2 great campaign issues. FOX NEWS. FOX NEWS. Everybody lissen up… FOX NEWS!

    That should do it. Let us know where we can donate to that campaign. ;-)

  33. anonymous un-RINO on June 7, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    Oh and I forgot… you’re gonna nazi tattoo anybody who disagrees with you. Gotta make sure to get that into the campaign. They deserve it, afterall. ;-)

  34. Tattoo Log on June 21, 2011 at 6:23 am

    Like I said in the other thread, Libs aren’t about liking, they’re about anger and hating as Glover clearly demonstrates

  35. Ed Kepley on April 29, 2013 at 5:28 am

    Climate change is a significant and lasting change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns over periods ranging from decades to millions of years. It may be a change in average weather conditions, or in the distribution of weather around the average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change is caused by factors that include oceanic processes (such as oceanic circulation), biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics and volcanic eruptions, and human-induced alterations of the natural world..
