Then again, these are the bright minds who tell us we can't have wind or solar because "wind dies and sun sets."
    I have personally spent time trying to convince friends who post that crap that they're wrong.

    But what do I, someone who works in the trades on projects similar in scope to Keystone XL, know about anything like that?

    It's the same crap our doctors, nurses, and epidemiologists have been going through for a year, and journalists for five years: someone posting a meme or sh*tty 20 minute YouTube video with no context certainly knows more than someone who has been educated on that topic for decades.



    I had it with one and just posted "Bwahahahahaha. Season laborer finds out meaning of seasonal."

      It's like the middle of this country is the town from Borat.
      I feel like 1/5th is too low for the region I'm from more like 2/5th don't move.

      Or of they do move, it's just the same thing they're used to but now with *two* McDonald's. And maybe a Culver's.

      I'm trying to figure out how to make it more regional for our east coasties.

        At some point, their forefathers had to move there. For that specific job. So for them to say they can't move, well.....

They all came from somewhere else, whether it was moving from BFE to the city to live twelve deep in a 2-person apartment while they were working 3 jobs, or moving around the world with the army, or emigrating here after spending years in refugee camps in Iraq or Somalia -- people who would have killed for a nice, fat, tranquil, bovine, stable, feet up and mind in neutral hometown.

              I know someone, well into his 70s, maybe even over 80 now, who, with the exception of one year in the Navy (Korea), has lived his entire life, from birth till now, in Watkins Glen, NY.

                          There's this quote from the article:
                          “If an old man says all he did was walk in and no one tried to stop him, and he walked out and no one tried to stop him, and that’s all we know about what he did, that’s a case we may not win,” one official said.
                          Isn't that still a crime? How do you not win that case?

                          • Even if you don't win, you charge them. You don't self-censor in cases of domestic terrorism to, what, protect your winning percentage?

                            Charge Abe Simpson with trespassing and suspend the fine. But charge him. No bullsh-t with these people, they will not be deterred by anything but law and force.

                            And I want every one of those turds who entered the Capitol on some sort of list of suspected terrorists and white nationalists.

                              They are going to argue that the Capitol Police letting them in negates the trespassing charge. I have no idea if that is legit or not but that is what they are setting up. They are all arguing they just walked through the open door with no one stopping them and often helping them.

                              They need to find different charges. Conspiracy to murder a cop seems appropriate.

                              Meanwhile Republicans are already downplaying it to levels even I didnt expect so fast. Kevin McCarthy is saying we are all responsible. Yeah it is my fault a bunch of Qucumbers and violent terrorists stormed the Capitol. Eat a bag of dicks Kev.
