Green New Deal

I recently began writing for the Italian news site, InsideOver. One of the articles I wrote was about the Green New Deal (Top Five Myths – they’re not really the top five, but . . . ).

In any event, I also have the article on HERE.

And in keeping with the tradition of new ideas realllly pissing off old white men (especially ideas from young women), my article seems to have grabbed the goat of these two fucknuts:

The one on the left looks like a real dick. He’s scolding you in his picture. That takes skill! Their comments indicate they are NOT having any of this Green New Deal nonsense.

NONE OF IT!

They’re they epitome of the guy at the top of this page . . . oh, and they’re eejits.

Look, first of all, the Green New Deal is simply a place to begin a discussion (does anyone really believe that bill, as it is, would make it through Congress). Secondly, for all the shit talk everyone has about the GND, no one, and I do mean NO ONE, offers up an alternative plan . . . or any semblance of an alternative plan. They just poo-poo the GND.

Again, eejits.

It’s fine to shit on, or disagree with, a plan but offer up an alternative! Jaysus. Or at least a place to start a discussion about an alternative. The cry babies don’t want to, lack the intellectual bandwidth to do so or they’ve been so co-opted by the fossil fuel industry that they refuse to.

Which do you think it is?

Frankly, unless Donald Trump, John Bolton (his mustache) or any other of the half-wits in Washington get us into a military altercation that blows up the world, I’m not gonna be around when the world implodes as a result of all of this climate catastrophe. Neither will any of the white haired morons currently decrying the Green New Deal.

I also don’t have children. So while I’m invested on a humanitarian level, my emotional investment is minimal.

In any event, climate change is a very real and serious issue and the Green New Deal will continue to be this political seasons hot button issue (unless Trump gets us into a war or military altercation, which is looking more possible). It seems odd to me that climate science (irrefutable science!) could be as polarizing as abortion is . . . but it is.

Of course, it could also be the political climate we live in. It would seem as though the Almond Joy and Mounds contingency would do battle at the drop of a hat. You see, Almond Joy has nuts, Mounds don’t.

I shudder to think how those Miller Lite “Takes Great/Less Filling” ads would look today. Probably like The Battle of the Bastards from Game of Thrones.

Christ, it’s all a mess, in’it?

p.s. This guy also posted an absolute nonsensical comment on my GND article. But then he’s a polymath and ronin scholar. Which is to say that he enjoys studying many different topics.

God DAMN, I love the internet!
