Yeah, that is pretty much what they do.  Don't forget the old "hockey stick" graph that seemed to show that temperatures were all normal and steady before that.  Turned out later it was a fraud. 

And after 25 years or so, we are still in the position where just about every "solution" for climate change does little or nothing for climate change.

We were trying to find ways to warm the climate in the 70's.
Sometimes we carry more weight then we owe.
And sometimes goes on and on and on.

I remember learning about global warming in elementary school in the 80's.  It was just environmentalist propaganda at the time.  Save the Whales and such were bigger.  When the rich elite found ways to use it to get rich, it became a much bigger political issue.

And in the '70s we were all going to die because of the impending new ice age.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Pretty funny, considering the violent crime in her state:

We have "Go back to California" signs all over the place here, but everyone is still friendly, no matter what state's license plate you have. I wave at every car I pass in my rural area regardless of the license plate, partially because people were doing that to me when I was still exploring with a CA plate. I suppose that some blue ninnies consider hand waving as a violent microaggression.

Yeah, because we routinely open fire on cars with out of state plates.
But hey, if they want to avoid Kentucky that's fine with me.

Maybe a bit of the world is getting slightly less mad ...

Middle-schoolers mock the whole "pronoun" thing, and their teacher fails to see the humor:

Not sooper-enthoosed about teachers getting advice from TikTok. Or perpetrating gender confusion.

I guess you could drive slow through the bad parts of Houston these days and not be too safe.  Of course, it won't matter what your license plate is.  Otherwise, Texas has had transplants from other states including the Northeast for decades.

But without free breakfast, free lunch, and free dinner the kids are going to starve haven't you heard?

I am surprised YouTube hasn't taken that down for hurting someone's feelings or something...
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

"Healthcare"

    Our transgender state of refuge bill (SB 107) — ensuring families with trans kids can seek refuge in CA if other states criminalize them for allowing their kids to get healthcare — just passed its final Assembly committee & heads to the Assembly floor. Thank you, colleagues.
