    Climate Hustle

    The real issue (as I understand it) is the direct coupling of CO2 concentration with temperature change. Yes, there is a correlation, but there is no proven causation. The climate alarmists insist that because there was potentially a higher concentration of CO2 when the earth was believed to...

    I've seen those seats and the people who use them often enough that I wouldn't put my face near it after a bottle of bleach and a container of Clorox wipes...

    Shootings - A thread

    All that because one person decided it. Complete (over)reactionary bull$#!+ by a single individual with way too much power. They need a better constitution in NZ. I wonder if some localities will decide not to enforce it. I know some towns, counties and states would become 2nd Amendment...

    Shootings - A thread

    I suspect that NZ has some blowback in their near future. I wouldn't want to be LE tasked with round up ops. If they were smart they'd stick to offering buybacks and taking weapons captured from suspects involved in other crimes. Otherwise, they are likely to receive significant pushback from...

    Shootings - A thread

    Always sad to see a country's citizens lose any defense they would have against tyranny, particularly in what would be considered a western style government. Would strike me harder if I had realized they had any rights left prior. And the decline continues...

    Shootings - A thread

    You can't truly define what "causes" a person to murder an innocent person or 50. It's described as evil, and it's understood that the person was so selfish that he/she decided that, since he/she didn't have the life they thought they deserved, someone or many people must pay the price with...

    Shootings - A thread

    I'm certainly with you on the suicide snap. Those people (or their loved ones really) deserve our sympathy, even though that is still a selfish "way out." But I get it. In theory, they only harm themselves, though they are abandoning friends and family, potentially to those very same problems...

    Shootings - A thread

    I certainly agree that there is a spectrum of degrees, but murder (of an innocent person, not killing out of self/national/other defense) certainly puts a person directly in the evil category. No excuses. No watering it down. Much of what drives people to that level of depravity falls on our...

    Shootings - A thread

    I see no scenario where anyone but the mass murderer is remotely responsible for the killing of innocents. Everybody receives negative stimulation. What a person does with that determines whether that person is good or evil.

    Shootings - A thread

    I really don't like your tense there. You stated it in a way that makes it sound like the A-holes who do this stuff are "being driven." That removes their agency/accountability from the equation. Mass killings are perpetrated by evil people by any means they can: guns, knives, hammers, trucks...

    Well, of course, that was right after the early '80's apocalypse over there. Haven't you seen Mad Max? :p

    You're So On Fleek SJW

    So is this for real? Do they have any concept of what people from other times and places have successfully coped with? Probably not. :rolleyes:

    Shootings - A thread

    I don't think I would focus on the veracity of the actual shooting itself. Fully legit or not, the lefties will use it to try to take rights away from law abiding citizens. I honestly didn't even realize NZ had any gun rights remaining. Looks like they'll be Australia in that regard post haste...

    Shit you watch on TV

    I did like the Kingpin's appearance in season 2. I just can't tolerate DD's whole "I'll beat them up until they relent" mantra. All that happens is that they keep coming back, and hurting other people in between. I prefer Frank's approach to evil people.

    Shit you watch on TV

    Finished Daredevil S2 last night. Not bad, but I wish I had significant interest in the actual DD story, but I don't. I was never and still am not really a fan. I really liked The Punisher series much more, and he's much better in his own series. They even took the characters I liked best over...
