On a tip from seaoh.



  • Mr. Freemarket

    With all this talk about transgender, etc., might I ask a couple of questions?

    If I identify as a woman, even though I have Y chromosomes in every cell, why can’t I self-identify as a black man rather than a white man? So far as I am aware, blacks and whites have virtually the same chromosomes.

    Also why can’t I self identify as 18 rather than as one approaching retirement? I feel like I am 18.

    Bill Nye the pseudoscience guy looses it when asked questions by Tucker Carlson.

    “To what degree is climate changed caused by human activity? Is it a hundred percent caused by human activity, is it 74.3%? It’s “settled science,” please tell us to what degree human activity is responsible.

    “So the word ‘degree’ is a word that you chose,” Nye argued, “but the speed that climate change is happening is caused by humans. Instead of happening on time-scales of millions of years, or let’s say, fifteen thousand years, it’s happening on a time-scale of decades, and now years.”

    “OK so at what rate would it have changed without human activity?” Carlson asked pointedly. “You look annoyed that I’m asking these questions, but they’re very basic questions. They’re not denial.”

    “OK, so, basically, the cycles of climate change,” Nye started again, “the last ice age we had was tens of thousands of years ago. So, uh, bear in mind that in ancient dinosaur days there was more carbon monoxide, the world was warmer than it is now, there was an inland sea in what is now Wyoming. I understand you have a member of Congress from Colorado used to be underwater and you can go to Dinosaur National Monument to see it, but that was millions of years ago.”

    A couple of hints for Bill. In ancient dinosaur days, there was more carbon dioxide, rather than carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide was poisonous back then just like it is today. Second, Donosaur National Monument is in Utah, not Colorado.

    ““I’m asking you a simple question,” Carlson tried again. “And because the science is settled, I hope you can answer it in simple terms, which is, without human activity would it have taken for us to reach this level of warmth in our climate.”

    Ah, it’s not clear that it would have happened. In other words, humans have changed the climate so drastically that we almost certainly avoided another ice age. There would have been another ice age – ain’t gonna happen. Because of you and me. So the sooner we get to work on this problem –”

    So the reality is that apparently Bill Nye would have welcomed another ice age. Maybe Bill would visit me sometime. We had 4 new inches of snow, blizzard conditions and temperatures in the single digits yesterday.

    Thank you regulators of California. You have lost your minds.
    http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/02/27/regulation-madness-hollywood-wants-to-make-it-illegal-for-this-website-to-list-their-age/

    “AB 1687, which targets websites that list actors’ biographical information, states that websites that “provide employment services to an individual for a subscription payment” must remove a subscriber’s age from their website at the subscriber’s request, regardless of the whether the website receives the information directly from the user or from outside sources.”

    That’s right; actors are worried about age discrimination so that they wish to make it illegal to publish it. Apparently Meryl Streap is worried that people might find out she is 67 and past her “use before” date.

    The Oscars and Affirmative Action…maybe it isn’t such a good idea…
    http://www.theblaze.com/news/2017/02/27/hollywood-filmmaker-says-liberal-push-for-black-oscar-nominees-actually-hurts-black-nominations/

    Cyrus Nowrasteh, the filmmaker behind the ABC docudrama “The Path to 9/11” and the Showtime movie “The Day Reagan Was Shot,” says the left’s push for more black Oscar nominations is actually damaging to black people in Hollywood.

    “It pisses me off that people — for their own liberal agenda — make this an issue and they destroy the accomplishment for the foreseeable future,” Ziegler said. “Because now you are forced to wonder, ‘OK. Was Denzel [Washington] really that good? Or was it just because they needed a black guy that people knew to nominate to make sure that the controversy from last year was extinguished.’”

    That’s right Cyrus. Blacks should reject Affirmative Action since it makes it impossible to know if blacks (or other privileged classes) are where they are as a result of actual accomplishment, or because somebody put their thumb on the scale.

    That article from January 2016 had once nicknamed Bill Nye, the corporate fraud science guy. http://www.naturalnews.com/052503_Bill_Nye_Monsanto_corporate_scientific_fraud.html
    or as, Dave Burton, a poster on Lidblog said it best: science fraud guy.

    Just imagine what if someone had made a parody of the opening credit of his tv show “Bill Nye, the science guy” into “Bill Nye, the science fraud guy”. I got to stop thinking about this before it became a ear worm stuck in my head. 😉

    And someone posted the clip where Bill Nye is owned by Tucker Carlson on Youtube. Save it and upload it elsewhere just in case if it got removed.

    The level of condescension is amazing. And thanks, Bill, for the dig against Trump. That’s what scientists always do.

    They say it’s all about quality of life, but he wasn’t even fully paralyzed, just partially paralyzed.

    The nightmare has finally begun.

  • Saxon Warrior

    I think you’d be better identifying as being slightly older then you could retire now.

    I’ve always thought of identifying as Brad Pitt. It might make me more attractive to women. So I think I should demand cosmetic surgery, and a few million dollars in the bank because I can’t be Brad without money.
    The taxpayers can pay for it all. Why shouldn’t they? I’m a Black transgender woman, (that’s another thing I identify as) so I don’t have any White privilege.

  • Saxon Warrior

    Oh no, I’ve got psychological delusions that I never realized that I had. What am I going to do?

  • Mr. Freemarket

    My white privilege is apparently already spent. Nice to meet you, Brad,

  • Rotohammer

    Like Saxon said, identify as a 72-year-old and start taking maximum SS benefits. You’ll need to change the birth date on your birth certificate, which will require a court challenge. However, precedent is in your favor because people have already changed the gender on their certificates. If something so fundamentally factual as your birth sex (hermaphrodites aside) can be changed, then so can the date. It may get shot down, but I’d love to read the court decision on that one.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    I believe Barack Obama has some friends that are pretty good at altering birth certificates.
