Repent, the end is near

The end is near

Everything is seemingly spinning out of control

High Priest of The Church of the Holy Gaia, Albert Gore, has announced that the earth will be doomed in 24 days. That’s hardly enough time to build your spaceship, but surely Gore and his crowd have set up an emergency online site where you can buy an indulgence and survive the coming apocalypse – I’ll post that url just as soon as I find it.

On January 25th, 2006, while at the Sundance film festival, screening “An Inconvenient Truth”, Al Gore said this as chronicled in an article by CBS News:

The former vice president came to town for the premiere of “An Inconvenient Truth,” a documentary chronicling what has become his crusade since losing the 2000 presidential election: Educating the masses that global warming is about to toast our ecology and our way of life.

Gore has been saying it for decades, since a college class in the 1960s convinced him that greenhouse gases from oil, coal and other carbon emissions were trapping the sun’s heat in the atmosphere, resulting in a glacial meltdown that could flood much of the planet.

Americans have been hearing it for decades, wavering between belief and skepticism that it all may just be a natural part of Earth’s cyclical warming and cooling phases.

And politicians and corporations have been ignoring the issue for decades, to the point that unless drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken within the next 10 years, the world will reach a point of no return, Gore said.

For a “the science is settled” “fact”, global warming models, which purport to predict the future global temperature to within a half-degree centigrade in 2050, these end of days calculations seem so flakey, so wrong, that a skeptic might wonder if this whole thing isn’t a giant scam, designed to enrich the powerful and develop a huge, global central government.

Here at FWIW we’ve listed these “irreversible, this time we really mean it” tipping points as they come and go, but here’s a brief refresher list for just some of them, going back to 1982, which was three years after the same people were forced, at least temporarily, to abandon their coming ice age theory of doom. Note that every “crisis”, however, always has the same solution: higher taxes, more government.

We’ve had “tipping points” declared as fact in 1982, 1989, 1995, 1999, and on and on. For some reason, the same media that ridicules and scorns the whacky preachers who gather their flocks on remote mountainsides to greet the end and then come down the mountain the next day, never turn that scorn on these false prophets. (NASA Puppeteer Jim Hansen liked 2013, by the way, but then, he also liked Obama. Some expert.)

And the huge side benefit? It’ll keep them out of the State House entirely

NH Secretary of State William Gardner being searched before entering his own office

New Hampshire Speaker of the House preemptively warns Secret Service that members won’t give up their right to carry concealed weapons during presidential candidate visits.

Mr. Jasper said Friday that he wanted to prevent any scenario where House members could be searched or “wanded” by the Secret Service on their way to their seats.

Republicans already were irked by photos in November showing the Secret Service giving New Hampshire Secretary of State William Gardner the once-over with a security wand ahead of Democrat Hillary Clinton’s arrival to file candidacy papers, he said.

“I realized we could have a real debacle on our hands so I figured the best thing to do would be to reach out to the Secret Service,” he said.

Asked to respond to Mr. Jasper’s message, Robert Hoback, a spokesman for the Secret Service, reiterated the policy against guns at events.

The House in January revived a rule allowing concealed guns on the floor and in certain other areas.

Mr. Jasper said his decision to contact the Secret Service fits in with the general culture of New Hampshire, whose motto is “Live Free or Die.” Residents tend to not like a lot of rules. New Hampshire continues to be the only state in the U.S., for instance, without a seatbelt law for adults, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Past efforts to adopt one were seen by some as nanny state overreach.

“You can ride in the back of a pickup truck in New Hampshire,” Mr. Jasper said, ticking off what he described as multiple personal freedoms in the state.

So it follows, he said, that “if suddenly the Secret Service was saying, `You’re not getting into the chambers unless we want you to,’ I would have a riot on my hands.”

A Google search for “Black Dating Sites”, meanwhile turns up dozens.

Like this one.

But don’t you dare try it the other way. Whites only dating site decried as racist.

Do you ever get tired of all this?

White dating

It also restricts searches to those seeking other heterosexuals. Oh, the humanity!
