And Progressives actually think people read their signs…

by Skip November 14, 2017

Self-induced harm

by Skip November 14, 2017

It’s their own fault and they’ve done it to themselves.  What’s worse, they hate the idea of being held accountable, in ANY way, for reducing their taxpayers to being just ATM machines.  In that they are doing a great job because it’s not like they are solving their real problems (e.g., wanting to spend $60 […]

Experts have been saying things for years that have turned out to be false but only recently have they demanded millions in taxpayer dollars (year after year) and an unimpeachable devotion to the scientism of the Climate Cult, despite them and their models being wrong about everything.
