Never before in all our history have these forces been so united against one candidate as they stand today. They are unanimous in their hate for me and I welcome their hatred.-FDR

Global Warming Denial is a Conspiracy Theory

Amanda Marcotte is right, you have to be a crazy conspiracy theorist to deny global warming.

Climate change denialism is so widespread and sadly socially acceptable that it’s sometimes easy to forget that a) it’s a conspiracy theory and b) it’s one that’s so wackadoodle it makes the claim that NASA faked the moon landing seem reasonable. After all, the pull of a faked moon landing, you probably only need to have a few hundred co-conspirators, maybe 1,000 at most. Nearly impossible, unless you’re BeyoncĂ© and the goal is to simply keep your secret album from getting mentioned in the press before you drop it. But at least the moon landing conspiracy theory assumes everyone works for one institution.

But the scope of what climate change denialists argue is happening is well beyond that. You have to assume that thousands upon thousands of scientists from a diverse range of nations are conspiring, with their diverse governments no less, to hoodwink the public with a scientific theory that any moron can easily verify is true by considering what happens to the inside of a car on a hot summer day. Let’s be clear: It is not possible to get that many people with so many competing interests together to pull a hoax like that. It can’t be done. If you’ve ever tried to get 15 people together for a dinner party, you should know that organizing a conspiracy that would literally have to involve millions of people keeping their mouths shut is impossible. Not just hard. Impossible.

I'll take the word of the scientific community over some random idiot in the backwoods.

Lois Lerner is Right

Republicans: "How dare Lois Lerner call us 'crazy assholes!' Now let's go sue the Kenyan-born socialist who blew up the Malaysian plane!"

Conservatives Are Getting Dumber

Over the last few months I've observed conservatives becoming dumber right in front of my eyes. Yes they are also crazy, racist, corrupt, etc., but all those qualities come from stupidity. It's like their brains are the Wicked Witch of the West melting in The Wizard of Oz. The one story that has brought out the stupidity the most has been the immigrant children coming to America and that has made conservatives lose their already small minds melt more. Then this story popped up:

So the politician sees a bus full of YMCA children and thinks that they are immigrants, what a fucking idiot! But that is just one example of idiocy out of thousands of stories. These people are embarrassing.

Let Me End a Talking Point

The whole "Democrats are the party of racism because past Democrats were racist" argument is stupid, pointless, and irrelevant. Yes southern Democrats supported racism in the past, but the party as a whole switched over to the other side and fought against racism. The modern Republican Party also supported racism in the past, so both parties weren't perfect. But I'd say 99% of the modern day racists are in the Republican Party. Racism is rooted in conservatism, the modern Republican Party is the more conservative of the two parties and Democrats are more liberal today. The southern states which were mostly Democratic prior to the 60's are now mostly Republican and those people didn't change their views on racism either. The Democrats just became the Republicans. 95% of black voters vote for Democrats, that is larger than any other group including Latinos and gays. To say that they are voting for racists because of the past is just insulting to them. The Republicans bringing this up are just projecting and stupid. In fact modern day liberal Democrats should take credit for all legislation that fought racism even if it was passed by Republicans. Democrats are the new "Party of Lincoln" since most Republicans would reject Lincoln's legacy.

Any Republican/conservative who brings that point up is full of crap and are using it to cover up their own racism, period.

Democrats Bail Out Mississippi Republicans, You're Welcome

The Republican primary election in Mississippi showed that no matter how far-right a candidate is, there is always a crazier one. Thad Cochran was about to get his ass handed to him by a *Tea Partier, but at the last second Democrats crossed over to vote for him. Mississippi is already messed up, but at least Cochran brought some money back to the state. With him out of there, Mississippi would be messed up even more. So to all the Republicans in Mississippi, you owe Democrats a "thank you" for rescuing you, but I don't think that will ever come.

*I've decided to stop using the term "teabagger." While I think the Tea Party deserves to be called that and they don't deserve to be called the "Tea Party", I think the name is stuck and there's nothing we can do about it. But I will say "Tea Party" ironically.

Memorial Day

The best way to honor fallen soldiers is to not make more of them. Support peace on Memorial Day. The troops fought for our freedom, the anti-war movement fought for their freedom.
