Sorry, I totally missed that.
(I still do.)
Oh good grief.
Did you not get enough daily affirmation?
I just had two posters tell me to go to shitholes, if I don't like things EXACTLY as they are, FOREVER.
He asked why my ORANGE CURTAIN indoctrination didn't take. I TOLD HIM.
The city of Houston has more population than the entire state of Alaska...besides, 75 percent would be dead in about 30 days in the lower 48 states. Not knowing how to hunt and fish, and gang violence would decimate the population of big cities.
When or if the SHTF scenario comes, i will only be looking out for me and mine...charity will go out the window. Survival is the strongest instinct.
So, nothing to do with "right wingers". OK. Got it.
I could tell, (pats on head in display of much needed affirmation)
I've had people tell me that Alaska is a shithole because there are not many modern areas, with modern conveniences. That it is more like a 3rd world country than the US. Me I call it paradise.
Well thought out.
Absolutely. All guns, ammo, food, and my chicken coop(portable) will be going to a nearby relatives house on 40 acres surrounded by other relatives on another 100 acres. We will have cattle, chickens, eggs, a stock tank full of catfish, and a good network of armed and well stocked friends looking out for each other.
There is a difference between personal freedom and freedom to make choices that affect everybody. That seems to be something hard for the left to understand
That is because the left wants to make decisions for everybody. Leftism usually ends up with lefties using force to make everyone go along for their idea of "the greater good". Lefties racked up quite the body count in the last century.
Left wingers are PERFECT illustrations of why we are DOOMED.
So, what's the difference between personal freedom to cut down a tree, vs that choice affecting everybody? Did the Easter Islanders realize that the personal freedom to cut down trees would lead to their destruction? I guess they didn't, otherwise they would have taken measures to prevent cutting down trees.
Do we realize that unrestricted use of fossil fuels is unsustainable? Do we know when we are at the point of no return in terms of both resource depletion and environmental pollution? When do you start curtailing personal freedom, realizing that these choice DO affect everybody?
"So, what's the difference between personal freedom to cut down a tree, vs that choice affecting everybody?"
Whether the tree-cutter owns the tree, or not.
"Do we realize that unrestricted use of fossil fuels is unsustainable?"
It's very possible that many don't realize that there is no such thing as "unrestricted use".
Where do you think the Easter Island right wingers told the frugal ones to get lost to? Or did they EAT THEM?
Good point. My guess is that there were smart people who warned against the destructive effects of deforestation, but their warnings were ignored because they had to keep the "economy running and growing". If we don't learn from history, we are bound to repeat it.
73% of my countries energy comes from coal, yet we have ample uranium reserves. Their use for nuclear power has been banned by a coalition of pro-coal conservatives and pro-renewables environmentalists.
Is the situation dire enough to warrant the use of abundant, 0% greenhouse gas energy? I used to be anti-nuclear, but now...
My guess is you are referring to the futile arguments of some economists that we'll never run out of oil, because eventually it will be too expensive, so we'll stop drilling for it. However, that argument is just playing semantics, because long before that time the rate of production will have tanked.
