12-year climate change timeline is a win/win for Democrats

Leaving science and everything that makes sense out of this, the 12-year deadline for the end of the world is the best thing Democrats could have ever come up with. Why? Well, I haven’t heard anyone say this yet, maybe they have and I’m just unaware, but here’s why the Democrats are putting most of their eggs in this climate change timeframe…

It’ll be the year 2030 when the so-called climate change timetable is at it’s end point. At this point, either the world ends, as suggested by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or it doesn’t. And here’s where it gets good for the Democrats…

Scenario 1 – the world ends

Democrats announce the ultimate “I told you so!”

Scenario 2 – the world doesn’t end

In this case (and what I think the Democrats will do since the world isn’t going to end in 2030, at least not because of global warming), the Democrats will say, “We did it! Thanks to all your hard work and the amazing vision and leadership of the Democrat party, we’ve avoided disaster. Now, you should trust us with your vote, your money, and your future!” They’ll use this heroic act of saving the world to push their party forward and ask for everyone to join in with the party of the future. They’ll say, “Republicans and conservatives would have brought the world to an end, but thank goodness the Democrats did something about it!”

The ironic part is this: even if no one did anything environmentally responsible from today till January 1st, 2030, the world wouldn’t end. The Democrats know this, so no matter how much effort is or isn’t put into “saving the world,” they’re going to take credit because of what’s going on now– the party-wide push to fix global warming. In 2030, they’ll say it was all thanks to them.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think they have a 12-year plan to set themselves up as the saviors of the earth? Comment below!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

The problem with global warming and evolution

Global warming is a hot topic (no pun intended, or was it?) in politics, media, and social circles all over the US. I don’t typically throw my snow cap into the arena on this subject because it’s not something I get hot about either way (pun definitely intended), however while I was driving around for hours yesterday (sorry, earth), I came up with an interesting proposition concerning global warming and evolution. The reason I paired those together is because the folks I’ve seen most concerned about global warming are probably also believers in evolution. Lovers of science, they are! But before we get into it, let’s start with one reason why folks care about global warming. The continuation of life for mankind, right? Basically we don’t want to go the way of the flightless dodo bird.

Become extinct? ain’t nobody got time for that!

Here’s what I’m getting at: I find it difficult for anyone to believe in evolution and also worry about global warming. Why? Because evolution in it’s most simplest form is the process of adapting. For instance, adapting to things like… global warming! Humans have evolved over millions of years, they say, so why would we stop evolving now? Wouldn’t mankind be able to adapt to the changing climate, as mankind has done for millions of years? Especially since the rate of change is extremely slow. Nasa shows that the temperature has risen a bit less than 2 degrees in about 135 years. Surely generations would progressively change over the course of years and decades, right?

So why are people vocal about global warming these days? Well, people like to argue.

People want to fight. I think that’s really what’s at the heart of most of these protests and rallies (whether it’s about Trump, or about science (yes, there were rallies about science recently!)). And before you get onto me about using parenthesis inside of parenthesis, I’ll go ahead and say, yeah I just did that. Wanna fight about it?? 🙂

Then there’s science. It’s my belief (until someone enlightens me) that all those science rally supporters can’t have their cake and eat it, too. Either evolution is real, in which case they’d believe mankind would be able to adapt to global warming; or global warming ending the human race is real, in which case they’d have to resolve within themselves that maybe mankind can’t adapt and evolve so maybe evolution isn’t a thing.

Evolution and global warming are not two soapboxes one person can stand on.

Anyway, I’m no scientist, but I think I’m on to something here. Feel free to enlighten me if you care and have the time! *Picking up my snow cap now from the middle of the arena*

The Bachelor Brad Womack, Episode 1: He Meets the Girls.

Season 15 kicked off with a remorseful Brad Womack who lead us down Lonesome Road, which is a left off Sad Boulevard and a right on Solitaire Street (if you hit Rejection Lane you’ve gone too far). Brad’s life was at a dead end. In 2007, he finished season 11 of the Bachelor and had no marriage proposal to show for it. That’s because, with the two girls left on that season, he gave neither a rose. They took the off ramp down to Dejection Depot while Brad signed up for three years of therapy. Here is where we see a montage of Brad sitting in the rain. Then walking in the sun.

Therapy. Analyzation. Trust issues. Blame father. Standing by lake with no shirt.

Green v-neck shirt.

Not to be outdone, purple v-neck shirt.

Fast forward to 2011 and Brad’s back in business, claiming to be a changed man. Global warming? War? Rising gas prices? No, no. Tell me who killed Michael Jackson then tell me Brad’s a changed man. We’ll courier that news to Bin Laden and bing bang, problem solved. In my best George W. Bush voice: America, you’re a beacon of freedom and change and giving people second chances at… freedom and change… and being on The Bachelor. End quote.

Par for the course next when Chris Harrison brings Brad to the front of the mansion where each girl steps out of a limousine to introduce themselves. This season there are 30 potential Womackettes (instead of the standard 25) so that’ll make for more drama and a few extra episodes of awesomeness.

Each girl has their own ideas of making good first impressions, some standouts include the girl who got him to propose, the vampire teeth girl, the hand mysteriously appearing out of the limousine window girl, and the slap heard round the world. Between promo packages and commericals, it was tough to squeeze in any real documention of relationships being formed (hey, they only had two hours to do this) so without much storyline, Brad narrowed it down to 20 girls (listed below). I’ll be honest, I had a couple guy friends over to my house to watch the premiere. We’re totally secure men so we never had a problem watching the show together, though they weren’t happy about my idea to light a fire, but I thought it would be warm.

Amongst the topics we talked about during the episode: why all the girls are white, the average bachelorette age this season is 27 years old (Brad is 38), Emily and who of us three should get to marry her when Brad lets her go, are fangs hot, Ashley S. grabbing Brad’s butt, Alli talking to Brad about her butt when he was probably thinking about something else of hers (more specifically her two something else’s that she made very obvious), Raichel’s wrist waxing, and how we can set up a bracket challenge for this season. I’ll work on setting up a bracket tomorrow, but that’s ok, at my job I have Microsoft Word and they encourage us to be creative. So I’ll design a sweet bracket, save it as a pdf and email to the guys. Copies available upon request.

Ashley S. gets the first impression rose. The next 19 went to Michelle, Kimberly, Madison Vampire, Emily, Raichel Wax, Keltie, Ashley H., Meghan, Lisa M., Lindsay, Alli, Sarah P. (your name rhymes with therapy), Marissa, Britt, Stacey, Shawntel, Jackie, Melissa, Chantal O.

No rose: Britnee, Cristy, J, Jill, Lacey, Lauren, Lisa P., Rebecca, Renee, and Sarah L.

My predictions for the final 3 are: Emily, Chantal O., Michelle. My two favorites after the first episode are Emily and Shawntel.
