Shit that Pissed me Off – 5/22

Jeb Bush Criticizes Intellectual Arrogance in Climate Change Debate

Bush is looking to raise money so he can be the third member of his family to be President.  To do so, he has to pander to the extreme right wing of his own party and that means his personal opinion on global Climate Change is irrelevant.

The evidence shows that our climate is changing so the right is now simply suggesting that it may or may not be caused by human beings.  Who knows? Aside from almost all of the scientists studying the phenomena.  Most of them seem pretty certain.

I'm going to be working in hostile environments and paying off student loans until I'm 50 just so people can call me "intellectually arrogant."

Anyway, Bush goes so far as to say believing the scientific community amounts to intellectual arrogance.

It’s all so cynical because Bush is saying these things to raise money.  Solving a potential global crisis doesn’t matter to him or the people giving him money.  They genuinely don’t give a fuck if climate change is caused by humans or not.

Because no matter what is causing it, they don’t want to do anything about it.

Shit that Pissed me Off this Week – 5/18

I’m on vacation this week and next week so the column is shorter than usual.  That, I imagine, is probably a good thing.

Most Psychotic Anti-Gay Person Ever

This lady’s crazy rant has been circulating the internet quite a lot in the last week.

This doesn’t piss me off.  It makes me laugh but if I’m being honest with myself, it also makes me sad.  This woman isn’t just anti-gay, she is completely around the bend crazy.  She needs some sort of medication in the worst way.  Just listen to the crazy shit she is saying.  Normal people don’t talk like this.  When you can make Michele Bachmann look sane, you have a very serious problem.

Update: Yep – she’s mentally ill.  Her family says she is on medication (up the dosage) and that makes the attention on her all the more sad.  The whole thing points up the kind of hatred that is focused on gay people.  She’s mentally ill and you can’t control that but would her vitriol be focused on gays if there weren’t so many sane people doing it already.
