Opening Arguments

America the beautiful


You haven’t seen the country until you’ve driven across it. And you won’t really grasp the fallacy of the Left’s bogus argument that we’re running out of space and resources until you do.

And you don't even have to drive all across the country to grasp it, either. Just driving through Texas, which has almost every kind of landscape and weather there are, can give you a sense of the awe our sheer geography inspired in our pioneers -- who didn't see our landscape "as empty at all, but limitless." Or, hell, just drive around in Allen County are realize how much available space we have here.

I agree, although I think it's a bit misleading to lump "space" and "resources" together. I haven't heard anyone of any political stripe suggesting this country is about to run out of space.

I suggest we use a section of that wide open space for wind and solar farms, since other resources, such as fossil fuels, exist in finite amounts, and will eventually become too scarce and expensive to rely on. Oh, and has anyone noticed any unusual climate change the past couple of summers? Nah, it's just a hoax perpetrated by those evil scientist smarty-pants.

Leo,  the left spends the majority of it's time creating false crises in order to control the behavior of those it considers less enlightened. Common sense and facts have no application in liberal theology, they simply make sh*t up as they go along. When proven to be bullsh*t they simply rename things or make something else up all new and shiney.


As for the weather Littlejohn, guess we all forgot that each summer is supposed to be exactly the same as the previous one. How silly of us. Let's put up a gazillion bird shredders and 4x8 egg fryers (solar panels) and live like the Amish so the Earth will cease to exist in 3097 instead of 3096.5

How in the World (pun intended) would you or anyone else have any idea how hot summer was 2 million years ago...??? Or 4 million years ago?

Something funny about liberals and that word "million" too, cuz it's only a big number to you guys if a Republican has it in his bank account, otherwise it's an inconsequential amount (like billion and trillion) when you're blowing it on solyndras, Fiskers and other fake "green" projects.

Wait, the "Left" was claiming we were running out of space?

Did I miss one of Zank's conspiracy rants? (Aside from the one above.)

Swing, are you seriously denying that over population is not a tenet of the left?

There are still simple gits who think lack of physical space is somehow the same thing?
