Obvious Truth

 

“Don’t fuck with the Bidens”


“Donald Trump could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and his followers would ignore it.” 


BANG!


See: Joe Biden revealed  — resulting in crickets at CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, CNN, NYT, WaPo


And like many things these days, what is accused of Republicans is actually Democrats “projection” of their own malfeasance.

Ice Age

 


Dear Pilgrim, during the last Ice Age, “c. 115,000 – c. 11,700” years ago, as the glaciers kept advancing across northern America … in some places a mile thick … plants could not exist to consume carbon dioxide … thus its consentration had to be increasing. And yet, instead of getting warmer, it got colder.


Conversely, when these glaciers were retreating, more plants sprung up … meaning less carbon dioxide … yet it kept getting warmer.


Hmmmmmm, so something else must have been afoot. No?


Could something else be happening today? Just asking …


STAND UP FOR SOMETHING ELSE!
