I Am Tired Of Liars

Truth is the first casualty of agenda. This is never more so than when the agenda is to promote something untrue.

We need look no further back than last week when that black robed coward suffocated the constitution he swore to defend. He had an agenda, perhaps it was to protect his standing at soirees or some inverse notion about the reputation of the Court, but either way and no matter the reason, his agenda was other than truth.

To serve this other agenda, he had to twist things to mean other than what they plainly mean.

But Roberts is not the first or the last. Why just today we have the Associated Press writing an article, the sole intent of which is to cause you to believe that the severe weather in the mid-Atlantic states is caused by "climate change."

Now, the AP knows that this is not true so they must twist language and bury the caveats so that you semi-literate open-mouthed carbon exhalers will never notice them.
WASHINGTON (AP) - If you want a glimpse of some of the worst of global warming, scientists suggest taking a look at U.S. weather in recent weeks.

Horrendous wildfires. Oppressive heat waves. Devastating droughts. Flooding from giant deluges. And a powerful freak wind storm called a derecho.

These are the kinds of extremes climate scientists have predicted will come with climate change, although it's far too early to say that is the cause. Nor will they say global warming is the reason 3,215 daily high temperature records were set in the month of June.
The rest of the article goes on to list a litany of disasters coming your way as a result of your bad habits.

The AP puts in the caveat "although it is far too early to say that this is the cause," even though the rest of the article proceeds under that assumption.

In the service of agenda, these people dispose of truth more quickly than a Chief Justice with social calendaring concerns and a subscription to the Washington Post.

I am tired of liars. I am tired of people who discard truth to serve their agenda be it protecting their status, promoting government expansion via climate fear mongering, or even just trying to win an argument in a combox and score imaginary points.

I am tired of liars.

Truth is the objective, not a disposable means to an end. Anyone who doesn't treat truth as the objective is selling something. Don't buy it.

  1. If it's "far too early", AP, then just shut up.

  2. Hey I have another set of equallyplausible predictions for the results of climate change:
    Ice storms, damage to the electrical grid, blizzard conditions in places not used to blizzards, heavy snowfall accumulations, rise in fuel oil prices for home heating, shorter colder growing seasons, drop in the prices of bagged ice, outdoor skating in winter in warmer climes, a renaissance in parka fashions, increased demand for anti-freeze, cold crank batteries and four wheel drive vehicles, and so on and on.
    Of course, all this climate change is sheer bunkum. Time magazine cover fro the 70's announced a new ice age. But at least the apologists of climate change are kind, intelligent and thoughtful interlocutors modeled after "anonymous" above.

  3. :although it's far too early to say that is the cause, then why are you saying it?
    About "unintelligent pricks like you", who are you and why are you saying it? I would rather be one of many "unintelligent pricks like you" than spiritually slothful miscreants condemned by their own words.

    Are they seriously saying that they can stop the planets climate from changing?? What kind of moron would believe this lie? Environmentalism is just a Trojan horse for commies to hide in. A nifty way to eliminate private property, to save Gaia from evil human infestation.
