28 degrees today, with a predicted low of 4 degrees tonight. Pondered at length whether to wear my blue MAGA hat or my incredibly warm shearling hat. It’s not terribly cold at the moment, but it’s going to be frigid when the sun goes down. Decided to wear my blue MAGA hat and carry my shearling hat in a shopping bag, just in case my ears begin to match the color of my MAGA hat.
Notice how the leftwing media propagandists have stopped calling this weather “global warming”? And, does anyone recall the global cooling climate scare being pushed by media propagandists in the 1970s? Truly, anyone with half a brain should know by now not to believe anything the media propagandists say.
What the propagandists will never tell you is that the only thing constant about the climate is that it is constantly changing. Always. A mere eleven thousand years ago – less than the blink of an eye in geological time – Manhattan was covered with a sheet of ice a half-mile thick. Half a mile thick. Then, it naturally began to melt, long before the invention of the internal combustion engine.
By the way, the name of the geological epoch in which we currently live is the “Ice Age,” a.k.a. the Pleistocene Epoch, which began about 2.5 million years ago. The defining characteristic of the Pleistocene is the repeated advance and retreat of huge ice sheets that covered large swaths of the Earth’s surface. Some faux-scientists believe that the retreat of the last great ice sheet 11,000 years ago heralded the end of the Pleistocene Epoch. The name of the imaginary new epoch these faux-scientists invented is the “Holocene” Epoch. The key word here is “believe” because there are no facts to prove that the ice sheets won’t return.
What we do know with absolute certainty is that the last great ice sheets retreated about 11,000 years ago, and that human activity had nothing whatsoever to do with their melting. Also, it is entirely possible, perhaps likely, that we’re in another “interglacial” period, which is the technical term for the period between the advance and retreat of glaciers. No one knows if the ice sheets will return, but thank your lucky stars we’re now living in a relatively temperate era because it’s rather difficult to grow food under mile-thick sheets of ice.
When I left work this evening it was cold as hell and the wind was howling, so I stowed my MAGA hat and donned my shearling hat while waiting for the bus in this Pleistocene weather.
Stopped off at the Trader Joe’s on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn to pick up a few essentials. In the lobby of the store I doffed my shearling hat and donned my MAGA hat, hoping that it might cause a few libtard brains to short circuit. When I got to the check-out, the guy behind the register said very softly, almost in a whisper, “I like your hat.” For a second, I thought he was talking about my shearling hat because I had momentarily forgotten that I switched hats when I arrived at the store.
He had a lot to say, but one thing he said stands out: “I think everything is going to work out.” Ultimately, I think he’s right, but who knows how long it will take.
Another thing he mentioned was working with people who begin sentences with “don’t you agree…?” He said that he usually responds with a calm “no” while remaining civil during the discussion.
I was impressed by his insightfulness, civility and restraint—so lacking among the narrow-minded, intolerant leftists. Would have loved to chat longer, but I was starving and there were people waiting to check out, so we shook hands and I gratefully told him that he had made my evening. Am thinking more and more that, yes, things are going to work out.
Later, after leaving the store, I realized that starting sentences with “Don’t you agree . . .“ is a subtle form of bullying, just one more tactic used by left-wing extremists to try to silence dissent.
Note to left-wing extremists: your attempts to silence dissent are not working.
