    That's some beautifully smooth text tracking, or whatever you call it.

    Its a fucking joke because with natural gas at $3.00/Mbtu, all of the coal plants that already closed, and every major utility already knowing that this "fuck the environment, coal is king" bullshit won't outlive the Trump administration, coal is dead as fucking dead no matter what Trump does.

    Guys guys calm down, remember that climate change was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive. SAD! It was cold at least one day this winter. Brrrrrrr.

    I totally missed the days of W when you knew the name of the bill was actually 100% the opposite of what it was created to do!

    Some of my favorites:

    ...the USA PATRIOT Act

    ...the No Child Left Behind Act

    ...the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act

    ...and the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act

    Conservatives confuse me.

    I thought they wanted to "conserve" the old way. Conserve old fashioned marriages. Conserve old fashioned rules and societal values.

    Why not conserve the fucking planet, you shit-brained hypocritical douche-drums?

    This is one thing that can't just be rolled back. Four years from now everything else put into place can be changed.

    We're already at or past a tipping point from what climate science tells us, the environmental damage this is going to lead to in terms of carbon emissions alone is incalculable. I fear for the planet we're leaving for our children.

    Slapping the word "independence", "patriot", "freedom", and "American" doesn't make a bill good. You can shine a shit, but it's still shit.

    Regardless of the criticism, it doesn't deter or discourage him from following through with his promises. He's also very aware that holding up a folder with white paper is going to be photo shopped on the Internet. So he's okay with it. You people and the media are eating out of his hand and he loves it.

    I was literally thinking this today, that Trump doesn't care about what happens to the planet he wants as much money as he can get now and then he's going to be dead and that's all that matters to him.

    Just a novice question here: but why hasn't a politician ran on a campaign of "hey coal people, we get it, you don't want to lose your job and we don't want you too either. So on day one, I will sign an executive order to set aside X amount of dollars to train you coal people to learn a new technology called "renewable energy". After your training we will transition you into a new job and help with relocating if that is needed".....

    Why can't something like this be done? Again I'm not the smartest person and I definitely do not know enough about coal/renewable enough to say this would work but.... could it?

    the GOP in a nutshell

  • bill_from_atlantis

    What pisses me off the most is the GOP using "employment" as an excuse to rape the environment. Jobs can't FUCKING EXIST without a healthy planet, get your priorities straight.

    Moreover, the jobs excuse is a cop out anyways. It's always really been about staying relevant and protecting their foolish and greedy investment into an imploding star. Solar energy, while needing help setting up an infrastructure and not involving as much unskilled labor at this point, is still cheaper in the long term. The renewables industry in general also offers more sustainable employment at higher rates. Just ask Bernie, there's some great figures on his Facebook account.

    There are 31,000 scientists who recently signed a petition that man made climate change is bullshit. The 97% of scientists claim by Obama is an outright lie. I'd love if someone showed me what made everyone SO DAMN CERTAIN climate change is real. I'll be very fair, I'll read every word. But you'll find nothing

    How to get karma on Reddit:

    1. Make a hate-filled post attacking Donald Trump
    2. Post in a major sub that has nothing to do with politics whatsoever. Remember nothing to do with politics! (This is key)
    3. Reap in those sweet sweet fake internet points
    4. Get gilded for whatever reason.
