    If it weren’t for double standards, Leftists would have no standards at all.

      I always laugh when libs do contradictory things and conservatives make a big deal of it, expecting their support to ‘finally wake-up’ and see them for what they are.

      The double-standard. Yes, and no. You see, libs don’t care if their politicians and idols lie; they expect it. So when they are lying, hypocritical, douche-bagging, homosexual-pimping, tax-dodging, embezzling, race-baiting, cradle-robbing, statutory-raping, womanizing, power-hungry pedophiles, the libs don’t care.

      Why? Oh, a myriad of reasons, but it all boils down to this: The libs want someone to tell them what they want to hear; they don’t want to hear the truth or do the hard work. So, when Al Gore, the poster-child for saving the environment at all costs, Mr. money-doesn’t-matter-when-it-comes-to-saving-our-planet-from-oil, sells out to big oil for money, they don’t care. In fact, they kind of expect that.

      A ‘double standard’? Not really. Just a completely different standard.

      • deTocqueville1

        Exactly! The whole ‘rape’ and ‘women with guns’ protecting themselves is a perfect example.

    Hilarious to see them all doing mental gymnastics to try and rationalize (rational-lies) this blatant hypocrisy.

    Also, I am always surprised (I know I shouldn’t be) by how many of these people, who have such strong opinions about ‘climate change’ that they went out in the freezing cold to protest it, say they have no opinion about this or have no clue what he is even asking about.

    • las1

      I am always surprised…they have no opinion about this or have no clue what he is even asking about.

      It’s no surprise at all. It’s because they don’t. They are being uncharacteristically honest. The propaganda organs they follow are not going to publicize a sticky little factoid about Al Gore and Al Jazeera to their all believing base. At least not with any consistency or constancy to where the factoid will remain in their consciousness.

      There is no doubt that liberalism is a progressive mental illness.”The Liberal Mind:The Psychological Causes of Political Madness” by Dr. Lyle H Rossiter Jr.,MD details how the liberal mind works and “reveals the madness of the modern liberal for what it is:a massive transference neurosis acted out in the world’s political arenas, with devastating effects on the institutions of liberty.” The book is over 400 pages of documented materials and removes all doubt what is happening now. Check it out.

  • c4pfan

    I’m not surprised, because all liberals want is control and money and this gives them both.

    The Colorado House passed some gun bills. It’s now up to their Senate to defeat them.


    “He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below
    He saw everything as far as you can see
    And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun
    And he lost a friend but kept the memory

    …and the Colorado Rocky Mountain High. I’ve seen it rainin’ fire in the sky. Friends around the campfire and everybody’s high. Rocky Mountain High…Colorado…”

  • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

    Did I miss this on TRS? It’s worth repeating, anyway: Times Square billboards rented by the Media Research Center, demanding the liberal media tell the truth. So impressive…made my heart skip a beat.


    • I missed that too, thanks for posting.

      In that same vein, did you hear that SOLO-DAD IS OUT AT CNN.


      See Ya. (or rather we will continue to not see ya)

      Soon she will join the ranks of all the other unemployed liberal loonies.

      • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

        S’long, Solo-DUD! Don’t let the door…

      • PatrickHenrysBody

        She’ll either go to Fox News or the Center for American Progress. 😛

    • OneThinDime

      This is so awesome I want to dance! Thank you for sharing the link.

      • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

        Yeah. Totally the right direction. It’s reassuring to think there are others thinking like US. I wonder if it was funded by a lot of small donations or some very deep pockets that should get credit.
        Doesn’t matter…but it does.

        • OneThinDime

          I don’t know how they are funded but hope they are a nonprofit org so the donors also get a tax writeoff 🙂

  • demographicallychallenged

    Would someone please explain to me how the man from the ice age 4500years ago ended up under a retreating glacier? Did he crawl under it? With the other retreating glaciers they have found tropical ferns and palm branches. We have been destroying our planet long before AL $$$$ Gore turned what seems to be a natural occurring cycle into a personal cash cow. Where is the real intellectual science?

  • c4pfan

    A great post from Chuck Heath Jr and a cute pic of his daughter Sophia!

      Oh! So Sarah!

    We saw Atlas Shrugged II last night. Had advance ordered the blue ray so we got it as soon as it was available. It was really good.

    It arrived in the same box as my new custom-fit holster. So…I stuck my unloaded gun in it and heard a click. I immediately thought, oh no, because, as I suspected, was unable to remove it from the holster. So then I read the instructions. Now I’m good with it.

    When all else fails, read the instructions, and not one second before. That’s my Rs bad advice for today. Biden would be so proud 🙂

    • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

      ‘Atlas’ just moved from ‘saved’ to ‘disc queue’ in Netflix. Available 3/19 – can’t wait. Life changing book, read many many years ago. Ayn Rand, the Founding Fathers’ vision of a true American: flawed human, dedicated patriot.

    • tinlizzieowner

      “We saw Atlas Shrugged II last night”.
      I read the original book, decades ago.

  • Whackadoodles OK with top whackadoodle utter hypocrisy!

    See, it’s not about “mother nature” or “global warming” at all! It’s about power, control and money! Any TRUE environmentalist group would be outraged and feel betrayed by big fat Al! But no… Thus it is as it always was, a scam.

  • keninil

    Wish he would have been asking how these folks heat their homes — wind or solar ???
    — whether it is better to buy fossil fuels developed in the US or Venezuela, Nigeria, or the Middle east. (backup questions, do they grow their own food or eat the stuff imported from who knows where? Are the fans of raw milk, or processed stuff?)

  • LJB57

    Wow… Al’s head now dwarfs a Cinder-Block!

  • Sandra123456

    Environmentalists/liberals/Democrats exist on hypocrisy.

    Anyway since this is an OT, Victor Davis Hanson has written an on target article about the state of our country, “Brave New World.” What follows is just one part of this great read.

    “There Is No Media

    About four years ago, the media just dissipated. Gone, buried. Did we notice our newsreaders are virtual government employees? The media is a Ministry of Truth where spokespeople vie for superlatives — a living “god,” a man who creates tingles in our legs and is pictured as a “messiah” on our magazines. Each sermon is a new “Gettysburg Address,” each gesture is Lincoln’s, each new Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton part of the new Lincoln’s “Team of Rivals.”

    Journalists are now Photoshoppers of news: Guantanamo once bad, now good; we all grew to stop worrying and to love Predators; renditions, the Patriot Act, and preventative detentions must have gone with George W. Goldstein.

    Those noisy free-for-all press conferences are now like Xerxes’s court at Persepolis, where toadies compete with kowtows. “Investigative reporting” is how some reactionary, enemy-of-the-people hacks dig up dirt on a progressive like Sen. Menendez or Susan Rice. The video maker sitting in jail and the 16-year-old American who was vaporized were reactionary troublemakers — and that is all ye need to know.”

    WoW!!!! A shocker!

  • barney59

    I will give Liberals one nod, that they are consistently illogical, hypocritical and obnoxious.

  • Yikes! I look away from my twitter account for a few minutes and now I see 179 new tweets! Jeez!! No wonder most people balk at the idea of having a twitter account! You could live your entire day, hour after hour, reading, re-tweeting, posting, and marking tweets “favorite” and still not haven enough hours in 1 day to keep up!

    If it were not for the few friends on Twitter and the sometimes useful newsfeeds I’d go mad and get the heck out of dodge as fast as my pony could carry me!

    • c4pfan

      Yup, that’s why I don’t. That place is digusting to me.

  • Sober_Thinking


  • In other news, Environmentalists are flaming hypocrites.

  • Conservator1

    These are the leftist wing-bags who belittle people of faith and claim their political opinions are based on science. Van Jones attended this climate change rally and stated that approving the KeyStone pipeline would be like “lighting a fuse on a carbon bomb.” These progressive pushers are fun to debate on any science topic; especially Anthropogenic Global Warming.

    I truly enjoy engaging them on lefty sites, like the WaPo, and exposing their ignorance of climate change.

  • Because it has never been about the Environment…ever! Just politics!

  • DebbyX

    Not much left to say about these people! I’m sure there are comments below that will sum it up!

    I’ll go read them all now 🙂

  • tinlizzieowner

    “Oh, I don’t know about that”.
    Ignorant bunch of situational hypocrites.

  • keninil

    We need an interview where all these anti-frackers are surveyed and ask if they use solar or wind to heat their house.

    If they say natural gas, ask if they would be willing to pay $.10 per therm to lobby congress to lower the price of natural gas.

    It would also be a good survey to ask if they would pay $1/gallon of gas to lobby congress to do something about gas prices (but not say anything about the Keystone pipelne, offshore drilling of ANWAR drilling)
