Where does one find straight news these days?
'To be a leftist means that one has to ignore the obvious....Social justice, enviornmental justice, racial justice are all oxymorons. These kinds of adjectives for justice do not denote actual justice. Only justice is justice.'

Lots of places. The question you are asking in a subversive manner is "where does one find news that agrees with ones preconceived notions?"

In this case, the news was correctly reported: a draft of a FAQ was accidentally uploaded to a public website. The news you were looking for was "socialists have a grand conspiracy to conquer conservatives by saving the environment."

I say this again, and yet again: 'saving the environment' as you all want requires ZERO imprint of man. that will never happen until there are zero humans OR we are reduced to nomadic foragers similar to stone age. before indoor plumbing and electricity.

but boy, the ability to control lots of people in the effort? that can't be left alone can it.

what all you all city dwellers can't seem to get through your heads is that 'city life' by itself is not sustaining.

acting like there's no need for what happens 'out there' is awful s hort-sighted. those things on the grocery store don't show up by magic.
NOR do they show up by electrical (wind, solar) powered transport.

it's a luxury that city dwellers have that they don't have to think about how stuff happens. it's just there; it just 'is'.
from there it's so easy to talk about 'green new deals'. about how we no longer should burn fossil fuels.

Well I guess that's it then. Pedal to the metal, burn your plastic, spray your CFCs, club a baby seal, and dump your toxic waste into the river because there's nothing in between nomadic living and destroying everything in our path!

Chemmy, I used to believe and agree with the news. But that was long ago when integrity, fairness, facts and the truth meant something to journalists. These days? I seldom agree with anything in the news -- regular media or social media. It's mostly just partisan claptrap.

Just wondering. Twenty percent of petroleum products are used for lubricants -- every kind of lubricant. Wondering what kind of magical lubricant will be greasing the wheels of progress and the economy under the DeLPS' Green New Deal?

Ah, that AOC. A true visionary along with all her Pavlov's dogs.

Good grief, you people should actually go read the RESOLUTION instead of working purely off The Idiot and Chief's moronic tweets.

Deny if you choose. You can't hang any part of the Green New Deal on rep/cons --- and there's a true fact for you!
