  1. If North Korea attacks South Korea, “a majority of Americans favor deploying U.S. troops.”

    I mean, MASH was a hit.

    1. The reboot will have to make some pretty serious changes to Klinger’s motivations.

    2. Hello.

      CNN? Polls? Seriously Damon?

      Man, those must some kind of cocktails they serve up!

      1. As long as it’s not Root’s usual cocktail of depressing and death-riddled links, I’m not going to complain.

        1. Are Root’s links more depressing than the links of others?

        2. You guys really know how to keep tabs on things.

    3. A majority of Americans favor defending a longtime free, democratic ally from a bizarre communistic totalitarian regime. Imagine that.

        1. The question was predicated on North Korea attacking South Korea.

      1. Most American’s seem to still believe that South Korea is a backward land of peasants incapable of defending themselves. As opposed to a very wealthy, advanced nation perfectly capable of defending themselves (from their much less advanced and militarily inferior northern neighbor).
        But I guess we gotta “put a boot in someone’s ass” every so often in the name of freedom.

        1. Most American’s seem to still believe that you help your allies

          FTFY

          1. “Help” = Underwrite their security at massive expense to your own bloated budget?

            You should run for congress, the MIC would fund your entire campaign.

    4. Which troops? The sailors aboard a ballistic submarine cruising in the Sea of Japan?

      1. That would be way more ballsy than boomers are used to.

    5. It’s a good thing a majority approves, since 23,500 troops are already deployed (and have been for 64 years.)

  2. The Trump administration is “quietly courting a few dozen House Democrats on tax reform.”

    The leaks are being whispered to reporters this time.

  3. President Donald Trump’s approval rating has dropped to 38 percent in a new poll.

    Sad.

    1. I thought that Reason already had a story that it had dropped to 33%?

      So does this means that Trump is having a surge in popularity?

      1. One of those polls counted the illegals.

        1. Just like that decisive official poll last November!

          1. PERMANENT! DECISIVE! SETTLED!

            Key words in the left-wing lexicon that are meaningless.

  4. “The average temperature in the United States has risen rapidly and drastically since 1980, and recent decades have been the warmest of the past 1,500 years, according to a sweeping federal climate change report awaiting approval by the Trump administration.”

    Surely some of those weather stations are due for an upgrade.

    1. Do I detect a note of skepticism in your voice?

      God I hope Trump LOLs and tosses this in the shredder.

      1. LOL because Trump is more of an expert than scientists LOL.

        1. Nobody gives a fuck what you think.

        2. The scientists are cooking the books to make themselves look better & people are catching on. Sorry.

          1. Citation needed. This I gotta see.

            1. CNN, CBS news, NYT, WaPo, etc.

        3. How is it they were growing crops and raising livestaock in Greenland 1000 years ago, but not now?

          Greenhouses don’t count, which ought to be obvious, but one never can rely on Tony for common sense.

          1. Welp I guess the entire global body of scientists are wrong and you’re right because greenhouses on Greenland. Where’s your fucking Nobel Prize?

            1. Who knew they gave Nobels for religious environmentalism now?

              “REPENT THE END IS NIGH!!”

            2. “entire global body of scientists”
              Citation?

              Remember… you mean every single scientist on Earth, so reflect that in your citation.

            3. Re: Tony,

              I guess the entire global body of scientists are wrong

              You mean the [quite mythical] consensus?

              Because it’s not an “entire global body of scientists” to begin with. And they’re not priests, Tony. You may fancy them as such but they’re not.

              1. All these responses are as pathetic as you know them to be.

                1. All these responses are as pathetic as you know them to be.

                  Stop pushing your religion onto others, Tony.

            4. Way late now, but I notice you behaved according to reputation, ie, didn’t answer the question but insulted the messenger.

    2. 1. The USA is 2% of the Earth’s surface, so who gives a Flying F?
      2. “has risen rapidly and drastically since 1980”
      So have temperature “adjustments”
      3. “sweeping federal climate change report ”
      Keep on sweeping, the trash can isn’t far.

      1. Against my better judgement I read the linked article (NYT – seriously?) and it’s basically a gang of permanent government flunkies all ganging up on Trump with this. I can’t for the life of me guess what makes them think he’ll read it, let alone take it seriously.

        1. Lately, I haven’t been hearing the sheep bleating for the jailing of skeptics, so maybe we’ve turned a corner.

    3. 1980 was much lower than 1935.

      1. it was before the “corrections” same with the Midevil warming period which apparently no longer exist in the climate science world

        1. Hey look everybody, Ron’s growing some “Midevil” balls.

      2. If you’re gonna cook the books, you gotta start in the right year.

  5. Microsoft Chatbot Trolls Shoppers for Online Sex

    The chatbot, tested recently in Seattle, Atlanta, and Washington, lurks behind fake online ads for sex posted by nonprofits working to combat human trafficking, and responds to text messages sent to the number listed. The software initially pretends to be the person in the ad, and can converse about its purported age, body, fetish services, and pricing. But if a would-be buyer signals an intent to purchase sex, the bot pivots sharply into a stern message.

    1. Bit teaser.

  6. The average temperature in the United States has risen rapidly and drastically since 1980, and recent decades have been the warmest of the past 1,500 years…

    Time traveling satellite data never lies.

    1. If a time traveling satellite could go back in time and destroy the first oil derrick… should it?

      1. Could a computer model cook data so hot even Jesus Himself couldn’t eat it?

        1. Mexicans like hot food so it would have to be reeeeeeally hot.

          1. That’s right, pendejo. Nobody fuck wit da Jesus.

            1. Fucking Quintana–that creep can roll, man–

              Yeah, but he’s a fucking pervert, Dude.

      2. One thing is for sure, satellites makes mistakes because my Sirius radio sucks and goes out for like no reason. No trees, clouds or anything to block the signal.

        1. I get it now. You and yours were the intended audience when Inhofe displayed the snowball in proof that the earth wasn’t warming.

        2. I get it now. You and yours were the intended audience when Inhofe displayed the snowball in proof that the earth wasn’t warming.

  7. U.S. May Begin Airstrikes Against ISIS in Philippines

    The Pentagon is considering a plan that allows the U.S. military to conduct airstrikes on ISIS in the Philippines, two defense officials told NBC News.

    No culture war, don’t care.

    1. Is there a bomb stock fund

    2. Rand Paul’s campaign statements about dropping bombs on enemy combatants within the U.S. are becoming less and less theoretical.

    3. This is sure to drive Schumer crazy.

      1. (I mean, not really in this case, but you know what I mean)

    4. Operation No Go Adobo

  8. risen rapidly and drastically since 1980, and recent decades have been the warmest of the past 1,500 years.

    Then why did it take 1480 years to write about a future so bright you gotta wear shades?

    1. Were humans causing global warming 1,500 years ago

      1. Humans were farting, using fire, and raising livestock 1500 if not 15,000 years ago, so the answer is yes.

      2. Humans were farting, using fire, and raising livestock 1500 if not 15,000 years ago, so the answer is yes.

        1. And repeating yourself is double carbony.

          1. In lefty world, you can buy a credit for that and make everything A-okay.

  9. The Trump administration is “quietly courting a few dozen House Democrats on tax reform.”

    One side has more interest in keeping this quiet than the other.

  10. …a sweeping federal climate change report awaiting approval by the Trump administration.

    Sounds like a setup.

  11. I don’t know how I missed it in PM Links, but RIP Almanian.

      1. I’m guessing that death eats thousands of dicks every day.

        1. Death Eats A Thousand Dicks was the surprising hit at this year’s Cannes Festival.

          1. Gerard Depardieu was pretty good in that.

            1. It’s hard to see Death as a fat French guy. However, the use of black and white was a nice callback to The Seventh Seal.

  12. Game of Thrones Uses IKEA Rugs As Capes

    “These capes are actually IKEA rugs,” Michele Clapton, an Emmy Award?winning designer, told an audience at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles last year. “We take anything we can,” Clapton added with a chuckle as she described the process that goes into designing medieval garb. “We cut and we shaved [the rugs] and then we added strong leather straps. . . . I want the audience to almost smell the costume.” The result is an IKEA-inspired cape that not only appears worn-in but also has the aesthetic of real medieval clothing.

    I make my capes out of dragonstone.

    1. What? You mean they’re not using real dead animals?

      GYP!

    2. If you don’t make your capes from the skins of hirsute orphans, you don’t belong here.

      1. Ramsay? We thought you were dead!

  13. Clothing Company Attempts to Reclaim Swastika for LGBTQ People

    KA Designs claims that their intention behind using the symbol commonly associated with the Nazi party was to reclaim the symbol to represent the LGBTQ community.

    In their original description of the product, KA Design wrote, “Here at KA we explore boundaries. We push them forward. Let’s make the Swastika a symbol of love and peace. Together, we can succeed.

    My goodness.

    1. You know who else did things they would eventually need to apologize for?

      1. Everyone on Hit’n’Run basically every day?

        1. Speaking of which, I apologize.

        2. Where’s Jesse Jackson when you REALLY need to a-p-o-l-o-g-i-z-e?

      2. Hopefully Damon for that CNN link.

        /stares down Damon with raised eyebrow.

    2. “Together, we can succeed.”

      Until there’s a power struggle.

      Then it’s all swish, mish, mosh*.

      *That’s what a power struggle sounds like.

      1. pchew, pchmo, braaaaap, braaaap

    3. So are they reclaiming in the name of Ernst R?hm?

    4. They better check with the Indians. Smells like cultural appropriation to me.

      1. Oh, how many times I have walked into a room and said that…

      2. Wasn’t “Smells like cultural appropriation” the name of some album?

        1. Not that I’m aware of. However, I do know that it was part of some wrassler’s catch phrase.

        2. Way worse than smelling like teen spirit!

      3. The Buddhists want their symbol back.

        1. yeah, in another life.

          1. Last one to immolate themselves wins!

    5. Well, I guess the irony that a lot of Nazis were gay wasn’t lost on these folks.

      1. Ernst Rohm says that is fabulous!

        1. Just another thing he has in common with Tom of Finland.

  14. Report reveals underground US haven for heroin, drug users

    A safe haven where drug users inject themselves with heroin and other drugs has been quietly operating in the United States for the past three years, a report reveals.

    None were known to exist in the U.S. until the disclosure in a medical journal, although several states and cities are pushing to establish these so-called supervised injection sites where users can shoot up under the care of trained staff who can treat an overdose if necessary.

    Yeah, it’s called Hamsterdam.

  15. I demand no more links to CNN or else I boycott!

    WHO’S WITH ME?

    /looks over at Fist for cues or advice.

    1. CNN despised by Trumptards.

      Just like the NYTimes, Washington Post, and other real news.

      1. Shhhh. Itsokay. Gently but firmly shoves soft, stale cracker into Palin’s Buttplig’s cold-soar infested mouth.

        1. Predictable troll is predictable. We should let him fester for awhile and see if he comes up with something original.

          1. His schtick hasn’t changed in at least a decade, why would he alter it now?

            1. A “troll” among Big Gov Trumptards on a libertarian site.

              1. Now now shreek, don’t go getting an inflated sense of your impact.

    2. I like CNN polls. They’re very soothing, if not entirely sooth.

    3. Didn’t they post an even lower poll the other day from Gallup or something? Come on CNN, you can go lower than that.

  16. I, A Fat, Beautiful Black Woman, Get Lots of Sex. Why Does That Bother You?

    If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that I am sex-positive and discuss various topics related to sex all the time. It’s no secret that I am openly non-monogamous, a believer in polyamory, and a size queen with no gag reflex who loves a big dick.

    So you’re just like Mike M?

    There’s politics involved in labeling. I alluded to that earlier when I used all the flowery descriptors for Usher’s accuser. For most people, there are two categories of big girls: fat and thick.

    Don’t let fatness fool you. We get more sex than you guys think. Some of your faves not only desire our sex, but they prefer it. I have the DMs, private messages, and sexual track record to prove it.

    Someone got paid to write this. America is wonderful, people.

    1. I am sex-positive

      Fat chicks usually are.

    2. I guess you can’t fat shame someone proud of their fat then.

    3. That t-shirt. “chubby and harder to kidnap.”

      I lost it. That’s some funny stuff.

    4. If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that I am sex-positive and discuss various topics related to sex all the time. It’s no secret that I am openly non-monogamous, a believer in polyamory, and a size queen with no gag reflex who loves a big dick.

      So you are a fat person who bores everyone from your relatives to the grocery store clerk with constant sex talk. Yay?

      1. Sounds more like she talks about sex to people who want to see her opinion.

    5. Crusty Citizen’s sex life primarily involves a warm towel and his increasingly worn-out Shepherd Fairy Obama HOPE poster.

      1. That was actually a decent attempt at a burn, Simple Mikey. One largely based on nonsensical premises, but nobody expects otherwise from you.

        1. You stumble in there and white knight for crusty, lookit you, such a dashing figure!

          You sure showed him!

          1. Let’s not even pretend he was white knighting for Crusty, when we all know he was just shitting on Mikey.

          2. You might not have noticed because you’re not very smart, but Mikey actually mentioned me in his comment. Of course, he thinks Crusty and i are the same person, but it’s not his fault he’s got so many extra chromosomes.

    6. Why would that bother me, or anyone?

      1. Why are you still beating your wife?

    7. With her expressed preference for big dicks, I assume she’s totes cool if I maintain my own preference against land whales, right?

      1. What size dick can get past the foot-thick layer of flab anyway?

        1. Just when we need John the most.

  17. From yesterday, since I missed it: RIP Almanian. Does anyone know how old he was?

    1. Cancer Doesn’t Card.

      1. So I take it he was relatively young? That sucks.

        1. He occasionally referenced having grandkids, so not THAT young.

    2. Extremely sad. One of HnR’s best commenters.

  18. What Lena Dunham and Donald Trump have in common

    For Lena Dunham, the trigger is a long delay at JFK airport. “Morning Joe” and other cable news slights get the President going.

    Both of these high-profile personalities tweet too much.

    Each appeals to her/his respective base and fuels the fury of those who think otherwise.

    lol

    1. Another thing they have in common is doing the bulk of their mass communicating from the can, i assume.

    2. “Yet Breitbart News, not surprisingly, publishes the single least attractive photo of Dunham”

      Is publishing least attractive photos par for the course if not a standard with most if not all media outlets including the legacy papers?

      1. Do legacy papers post this photo alongside a story about Trump?

        1. Is the appropriate response to that picture “dat ass tho”?

        2. That is a hell of a panty line.

        3. I don’t know if they do, as I wrote a Firefox plugin that replaces all images with that one.

  19. Triple brickbat:

    1. ICE detains US citizen for 3.5 years without access to a lawyer.
    2. When they finally let him go, they abandon him in the middle of rural Alabama with no money or transportation.
    3. Court rules he can’t get compensation because the statue of limitations for challenge the detention is 2 years and he didn’t file while he was being detained without access to a lawyer.

    U.S. Citizen Who Was Held By ICE For 3 Years Denied Compensation By Appeals Court

    1. I guess you missed the actual Brickbat today.

      1. Whoops. Sorry. Just got back from vacation.

  20. A bunch of rich, but stupid, idiots in Nancy Pelosi’s exclusive San Francisco neighborhood (where many homes are valued at well over $10 million) didn’t pay the property taxes on their private road for a couple of decades, and woke up one morning to find out that their street was put up for auction and sold.

    ROFLMAO. Couldn’t happen to a bunch of more wonderful limousine liberals. I hope those clever entrepeneurs put up a toll booth right in front of their house and charge then ten bucks each way.

    1. As someone commented yesterday, they should lease the parking spaces to nonprofits, who will put in Tiny Homes to house the homeless.

    2. You’d think the left would pause and wonder why “public servants” so often turn out to be the richest people in town.

      1. And why they won’t pay their taxes either that they insist the rest of us pay!

        1. Yeah, bribery and money laundering can’t buy the biggest mansion in town all on their own.

          1. The articles that I saw made a big deal to mention that Pelosi’s husband is already a millionaire and downplay Pelosi also having made millions as a politician.

            In other words, the media knows that people get pissed if politicians who made millions as public servants get used to further fuck the unwashed masses.

    3. “…a toll booth right in front of their house and charge then ten bucks each way.”
      I was thinking the same thing.

      Haha.

    4. The best part is the couple bought it for an absolute song at $90K. They could easily recoup that in about a year just from selling parking passes for the road, and since these homes all have driveways, it won’t really affect the homeowners.

      The irony that anyone on the street could have easily purchased the road and they still got caught completely flat-footed by this shows how atomized and unengaged these people are with their neighbors. Something like this should have easily come up on their radar if they were getting tax notifications about it, but no one bothered to talk to anyone else about the situation, and now the new street owners are going to let in the proles to despoil their little paradise.

  21. If North Korea attacks South Korea, “a majority of Americans favor deploying U.S. troops.”

    I think our involvement should be limited to air/naval support.

    1. I think it should be limited to letting it be known that if NK moves a pinky, we will let Japan have nukes.

      1. I wonder if they would take it. Abe just started calling for full nuclear dearming worldwide.

    2. Bi Bim Bap ain’t just batman comic sound effects.

    3. How about a good healthy dollop of moral support?

    4. That’s hard when pilots get shot down. Drones are not a major force yet. We use cruise missile though.

      Point is that combat with one hand tied behind your back is a proven mistake. Actually Korea is a prime example of the USA having one hand tied behind its back during the Korean War. MacArthur defeated the North Koreans but China intervened. Truman publicly stated that nuclear weapons would not be used and fired MacArthur for publicly saying that we could use nukes to stop the Chinese hordes. Not that we would use nukes but had both hands available to fight.

      Now we have this North and South Korea situation 65 years later.

    5. Kinda tough when we have 23,500 troops already on the ground.

      1. Every Army guy that was stationed in Korea that I spoke with was well aware they would be killed quickly by a North Korean attack.

        They are pawns to ensure any North Korean attack means American dead, so the US must intervene.

  22. recent decades have been the warmest of the past 1,500 years

    And we’re all gonna die!

  23. The Trump administration is “quietly courting a few dozen House Democrats on tax reform.”

    Hide ya wallet. Hide ya safe. They taxin’ er’body out here.

    Also, those pussies aren’t gonna grab themselves.

    1. Trump’s “courting” pussies this time rather than grabbing them.

  24. Ever since the election, we have been reading about Trump’s low approval rating. Am I wrong? Are the organizations that come up with this number NOT the same ones who completely failed to predict Trump’s election is the first place?

    Why the pluperfect fuck would we pay any attention to these imbeciles?

    1. The pre-election polls were accurate. They had Hil-Dog as a 2 point popular vote favorite and that was right on target.

      I know that flies in the face of Trump alternate facts though.

      1. I guess it’s too bad the popular vote is meaningless, isn’t it?

        1. As a fan of government gridlock I say it is.

          However, the Con Man has proven so inept at “deal-making” that we are enjoying a sort of gridlock-by-incompetence.

          1. Between you and Double Dummy, I can’t figure out which is the bigger moron. The stupidity is literally breathtaking.

            1. If you can’t figure out who is the biggest moron in the room, it’s…Tulpa! The answer is always Tulpa!

          2. To be fair, that’s a pretty fair appraisal of the Trump Admin so far.

          3. See your idea of being pro-gridlock only applies AFTER we have a bloated Nanny/Police State and someone wants to dismantle it.

      2. Ignatius, they also predicted her crushing him in the Electoral.

        It was such a done deal that they schedule multiple live President Vagina parties. The faces (especially Colbert), priceless.

        1. I know! I wish face memes of the left losing would run forever.

      3. She thought it was stroke play but was match play. But she’s so smart!

  25. President Donald Trump’s approval rating has dropped to 38 percent in a new poll.

    62% of people are tired of winning.

    1. Just noticed this is a CNN pole. CNN, of course, is well know for objectivity and relentless effort to expose truth.

      1. Other polls have the Con Man at 33-35% – even lower than CNN. They must be “fake” too, right?

        Why don’t people like a lying scumbag politician anymore?

        1. Obviously, people do like a lying scumbag politician. It’s just that they only like the right lying scumbag politician.

          1. I mean, it’s not like politicians come in flavors other than “lying scumbag.”

            1. Well, calling Trump “Hitler” is reserved for lying scumbags and who try and dismantle the lefty Nanny/Police/Welfare State.

              1. Trump’s trying to dismantle the police state? You sure about that?

        2. A good number of my acquaintances who voted for Trump aren’t happy with his performance either. But none of them regret voting for him vs. the alternative. The question is, who could the Dems put up in 2020 that could beat Trump even if his approval ratings are under 50% then?

          1. I would be willing to bet its Republicans in Congress not repealing ObamaCare that would explain Trump getting blamed for that for those people.

            I didn’t vote for Trump but like some of what he has done I also hate that RINOs in Congress are not repealing ObamaCare and fixing the tax code. I think Trump foreign combat interventions are mistakes. The Syria ceasefire is good news.

            Trump’s “approval ratings” were low and Trump won the election. Its because the “approval ratings” are left tools to skew public opinion and are BS propaganda. Democrats are done as a political force.

    2. President Donald Trump’s approval rating has dropped to 38 percent in a new poll.
      Says the losers of the election.

      Why does anyone care what lefty media outlets say?

      1. 24/7 on air pants-shitting by Libtard News Networks probably count for a few % points.

        1. Even funnier than lefty pant-shitting is that Republicans in Congress are doing more to prevent Trump from dismantling the Nanny-State lefties love than Anything lefties are doing- Including but not limited to lying about poll results.

      2. How wonderful it must be to be you people. Anything you don’t like is fake news. You’ve passed the threshold into complete intellectual oblivion. You actually believe only what you want to believe.

        1. There is whole bunch of fake news or better called propaganda out there and much of it comes from the lefty media.

          The left has left behind any intellectual reality a LONG time ago.

          Common lefty propaganda tactics include but are limited to: are taking stories and lying through purposeful omissions to skew a story, only getting one side of a story, only covering lefty agendas to make it seem like any other agenda is irrelevant, making up scientific results, making up poll results but not polling opposition voices….

          1. And all of this is revealed by the rigorous empirical methods of Sean Hannity and CNNisforcucks.com, I gather?

            1. Who is Sean Hannity?

              Who knows is the point. Trump is going to get re-elected, so Trump’s approval numbers are not that low to most Americans.

              CNN (Commie News Network) is for cucks. Glad you agree.

              1. And when he’s not reelected, it will be a conspiracy of the Jews. I mean globalists. I think we get it.

                1. He will be re-elected, so will the lefty reason be that time?

                  1. From inside federal prison? Even his buck-toothed minions aren’t that loyal.

          2. What are Trump’s real poll numbers, by the way? Cite please.

            1. Who cares?

            2. There aren’t any.

              No real polls have been done.

              Because nobody cares.

              Aren’t you getting that yet? No one cares about the endless whining coming from the left. Well, except leftists. And they only care that it’s not seeming to convince anyone of anything and they don’t understand why not–it’s always worked before.

              Gods help you if Congress finally wakes up and realizes you are all utterly irrelevant.

        2. Nobody gives a fuck what you think.

        3. “You’ve passed the threshold into complete intellectual oblivion.”

          You’re wrong there Tony. It’s anyone who thinks for themselves who is resigned to intellectual oblivion. Tribalist hacks like lc1789 and TB are the mainstream.

  26. Spike Lee is holding a rally in a couple of weeks for the Obamafags’ favorite football player of all time. I’m guessing most of you have probably already figured out who that it is before you even look at the link.

    1. I clicked, and it makes sense now. Kaepernik will probably get the Obama honorary Nobel Peace Prize.

      Before clicking, and judging by Obama’s feygele ways, I was going to guess some obscure place kick holder.

      1. He has a bright future in congress or working for George Soros or something for sure.

        It’s hard to believe, but just four years ago many of the geniuses in the media were telling us that Kaepernick and RG3 were the quarterbacking wave of the NFL future. ROFL. Another brilliant, right on the money prediction.

    2. If he is up for parole, you gotta let him roll!

      1. Damn, I thought for sure it was OJ.

  27. A majority of Americans always favor deploying the troops. It costs them nothing (as far as they can see – these people forget about taxes) and ‘its for a good cause’.

    These same people will scream bloody murder if you show a picture of a coffin coming back.

    1. They’re already deployed in this case.

  28. I sure hope Reason does a story on this.
    Google uses blacklists to create echo chamber

    1. It was discussed quite a bit yesterday and was in the PM links last night.

  29. “The average temperature in the United States has risen rapidly and drastically since 1980, and recent decades have been the warmest of the past 1,500 years, according to a sweeping federal climate change report awaiting approval by the Trump administration.”
    So, it was warmer 1501 years ago? Wouldn’t that be an argument for warming cycles being normal that humans barely impact?

    1. You’re not good at this.

      1. I know common sense is incompatible with lefty Global Climate Change nonsense.

      2. 1500 years.
        The planet is 4.5 billion years old.

        1. Data about average global temperature gets less reliable the further back you go, obviously. You people want to insert a claim about warming cycles or whatever the fuck with no evidence or justification whatsoever because you don’t want to believe what the science actually says, for whatever reason. Probably because you’re tribalist morons who care more about being on the opposite side of liberals than being right.

          1. Data about average global temperature gets less reliable the further back you go, obviously.

            “REPENT, SINNERS! WOE UNTO THEE WHO USE THE DEVILISH INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE, FOR SCIENCE!! WILL SMITE THEE, BECAUSE WE FUCKING LOVE IT!!”

  30. The average temperature in the United States has risen rapidly and drastically since 1980…

    Seems about the same to me. Hardly what you’d call “drastic” in any case.
    And wasn’t 1980 the year Mt. St. Helens erupted? Why didn’t they pick 1930 as the starting point?

    1. They tried to traverse the graph but were blocked by a giant hockey stick.

  31. “RECORD HEAT WAVES”!!!!!! Except its the coldest summer in memory ……….

    1. Weather is NOT climate even though weather makes up climate information over time.

      The funniest thing about lefty climate change hysteria is that humans might be influencing climate AND the Earth has its own climate cycles. In other words, its not the sky is falling situation that lefties want.

  32. Few days old but:

    Dischord opens entire discography for streaming.

    Lots of good stuff beyond Fugazi, Minor Threat, and Bad Brains. People mention punk a fair amount here, figured it might be interesting.

  33. “The average temperature in the United States has risen rapidly and drastically since 1980, and recent decades have been the warmest of the past 1,500 years, according to a sweeping federal climate change report awaiting approval by the Trump administration.”

    “Now, give us money!” said the government scientists after they posted their ransom note report.

    It’s a good thing we had instruments so accurate during the fall of the Roman Empire to know that these have been the warmest decades since… Or just what the FUCK do these idiots think 1,500 years mean?

  34. very nice post. I like it. Thanks for sharing this information.
