So much for freedom of speech

                    Every day, there is a racist tweet, a hateful tweet, something really dark and ugly, And what are we as candidates, as activists, as the press, going to do about that? Are we going to chase after those every day? Are we going to let him use those to divide us?

                    NeoNote — Deliberately created panic

                    ??His point wasn't about climate change, it was about how certain politicos and celebrities deliberately created panic over what was at best a very minor and misunderstood event.

                    It was global cooling in the 1970s. It was global warming starting in the 1980s. And when the models failed to predict, it was climate change starting in about the mid 2000s. Somehow that included everything from earthquakes to disease to starvation because dictators diverted food shipments.

                    None of this is an attack on climate science, which has been deliberately and continually used to justify drastic intervention despite the fact that no one knows how to reduce climate change. They can't even tell if this is part of a natural process or not. Oh sure, the climate crisis crowd alleges that it is human caused, but no one can eliminate the causes of previous cycles or show that the cherry picked data has anything to do with what is happening now.

                    What we do know is that there are loud politicos who want to take freedom, power, and money from people "for the greater good." That's one of the most dangerous phrases in history and inevitably leads to tyranny and disaster.??

Does the data validate those who say humans are causing the earth to catastrophically warm? Richard Lindzen, an MIT atmospheric physicist and one of the world's leading climatologists, summarizes the science behind climate change. ”

                    Education should not be pre-chewed

                    ??The classes teaching socialist and Marxist ideology aren't labeled as such. They are in fact part of the general education requirement. That wouldn't be so bad, except those classes are the only ones allowed. No one is allowed to dissent from the orthodoxy.

                    Once upon a time, university meant debating things that you disagreed with or that made you uncomfortable. You learned to think and defend your reasoning even if the words and thoughts you faced offended you.

                    Now, we have safe spaces to protect overgrown children from triggering because they shouldn't have to face something that actually makes them think and grow.

                    Education should not be pre-chewed. Education should be hard. Education should challenge you to be something more than you are right now. Education should be about understanding what you oppose. Education should be about finding what works.??

                    Six sex rules

                    ??I've six sex rules. People laugh when I say that, but the first two are unbreakable and would solve 97% of all sex issues in this country.

                    Number one is consenting adults only. There are times that I think breaking that one should result in the forced removal of body parts. Without anesthetic. And dull blades. On live television.

                    But, of course, that would offend modern sensibilities.

                    How it would offend more than rape is something that I am still waiting for someone to explain.??
