Danny Glover on Haiti and Climate Change: We Have to Act Now
linktv.org ^ | JANUARY 13, 2010 | linktv.org

Posted on 01/14/2010 12:34:40 PM PST by Berlin_Freeper

With thoughtful insight into the devastation that struck Haiti yesterday, Link TV board member Danny Glover spoke with our friends at GRITtv today to discuss steps forward for the Haitian capital. Glover points out that in this great moment of internationalism, the U.S. has the opportunity to rebuild its relationship with Haiti, and he voices a warning that disasters like this will inevitably strike again as climate change continues.

I am not sure if climate change is being blamed or just thrown into the pot but it still comes across as absurd to be almost frantically searching for solutions to an earthquake and still have climate change on your tongue.

I must have missed that one; how, exactly, does Mann-Made Global Warming cause earthquakes?

What does the climate have to do with earthquakes?

I guess he just means that it's our duty to create a global totalitarian state in order to solve every problem in existence.

By all means, help the Haitians in their hour of dire need as soon as possible. But “climate change” has nothing to do with it. The Earth’s climate has been changing for millions of years, with or without us.

I LOVED Danny Glover in Team America: World Police.

Great role. He ‘nailed it’ as they say...

Well see, it’s the government’s responsibility to stop earthquakes, all they have to do is raise taxes enough and it will stop the earthquakes.

As absurd as that sounds, Glover believes it!

WHAT?!
We have to “rebuild” our image with a shithole like Haiti?

We’ve sent troops and countless relief supplies to that dung heap over the past two decades.

Enough!

What will Haiti do to rebuild its image with the US?

Danny Glover is too stupid to assimilate the answer ... there is no connection since the starting premise is a lie.

Glover, in addition to being a low-IQ racist fool, is a little “c” communist who slobbers all over Castro and Chavez. Anyone who pays to watch him in any kind of entertainment is contributing directly to an enemy of America.

I think some evil, white Christian conservative like Dick Cheney forgot to flush on a visit to Port au Prince in 2003.

Thus our relationship with that stellar country is irreparably “damaged”.

Irreparably in the sense that only cash will do.

Well, Al Gore says the earth's inner core is "several million degrees," so, if you extrapolate from that, with the scientific expertise of a Danny Glover, it's like a non-ovenproof plate cracking, because of the inner oven of the earth...and we turned up the heat too high, or something.

I have to lay down now, my head hurts...and it's chilly in here.

I’ve had the Lethal Weapon series playing in the shop the last few days while I putzed around.

You can see each movie becoming more liberal and political.

In Lethal Weapon 3, the theme is “cop killer bullets” and his goal to get them off the streets.

In 4, Glover and Gibson have a discussion while standing in front of a huge poster that says zillions of kids get killed each year by guns. 4 is basically unwatchable.

Of course! The glaciers in Haiti melted too quickly during the past 10 years, and the earth rebounded from the relieved pressure, causing this great upheaval.

Why didn’t I think of that? Danny is brilliant.

Why couldn’t he have just encouraged people to help and left it at that??

4 was punishable as a crime against humanity. Oy. I remember when it came out, director Richard Donner saying in an interview that they basically had no script, and they sort of made up the day’s shooting schedule each day over their morning coffee. Maybe he was just trying to be funny, but I remember saying to my wife, “Yeah, it looks like it!”

“Rebuild our relationship with Haiti??” I guess he means the relationship whereby Americans have countless millions of tax dollars stolen to support illegal Haitian immigrants and current thug dictators on the Island. That “relationship”, Danny?

I don’t see how GW could cause an earthquake. After all algore sez it is millions of degrees under the earth so the earth should not get the shakes over the puny effects of man caused GW.

I know. I’m an engineer. You can get rebounding when you excavate in expansive soils. Once you remove a large depth of overburden compressing clay, the soil can expand or heave.

“I’m an engineer.” I gathered that - the idea of “rebound” is not a common one. I knew a now-deceased geologist that would argue years ago about the idea that “sea levels were lowering”. (Seattle Area). He kept arguing that the “ground is going up, not the water going down”. He was finally vindicated.

Lethal Weapon was “current” pop culture circa 1987. Twenty three years ago is hardly “current”.

But lacking a TV that does anything other than play DVD disks.... I feel you.

The connection is really quite simple. The inner core is millions of degrees. We are adding a couple of degrees from our carbon foot prints. There you have it millions plus a couple from our carbon footprints = more earthquakes. It is so simple only a liberal can figure it out.

Its all relative.

My first child was born in 1987, which rendered much of current pop culture from that point onward vacuous, superficial, addicted to shock value and basically counter to much of what I believe is important. Although, the movement in that diseased direction started in my opinion, long before that, somewhere in the mid-1960’s.
