Hand Guns are the New Segregation ^ | July 20, 2014 | John Ransom

Dear Comrade Undoc,

Please note that the Ransom Style Book will no longer recognize the phrase Hooverville Follies. Just as the Associated Press has axed the term Illegal Immigrant, we have replaced the term Hooverville Follies with a more apt phrase: Undocumented Intelligence. Thank you.

Look, I’m not the one who declares every weather event a product of climate change. What I object to is that many scientists and most members of the media write ill-informed opinion pieces that they wrap in the fish paper of scientific discourse. And then if one disagrees with them, they pretend like we’re just too stupid to understand basic science.

For example, last year I wrote about scientists who were trying to make the case that polar bear cannibalism was more prevalent than previously understood – thanks to our friend, global warming. The basis of these “scientific” assertions was 3 (three) pictures that were taken “from the decks of ecotourism and research boats anchored a few hundred yards away.”

Getting past the fact that the scientist in question was the guy who waaaaay undercounted polar bears, setting off the “Oh my God. Those cute polar bears will ALL die!” hysteria, I don’t think you can actually make a scientific case of increased polar bear cannibalism without an underpinning of science.

But that doesn’t stop Global Warming Islamists from argue on behalf of utterly stupid science.

I don’t doubt that the earth is warmer than at some time in the past; and there likely is some man-caused component to it. But the dire predictions, based on flawed models of the alarmists, which have been going on three decades now, frankly have not come to fruition. It’s time for the global warming crowd to admit that there is something about their science that they have fundamentally wrong.

As my 5th grade science teacher, Ms. Gallaghan, would have recognized, three pictures of polar predation makes a hypotheses not a conclusion.

But too many scientists and practically all the media don’t recognize the difference between hypotheses and facts. I’m guessing the Associated Press has outlawed the use of the word hypotheses as too offensive because it calls their religion into question.

Remember: Never let science interfere with a good pro-global warming opinion.

Global Warming Islamist wrote: Ransom makes much of "the most accurate map ever (!) of how vegetation could change in the region.” Yet he never points out that the actual paper makes no such claim. The Daily Mail added that hyperbole. -Combat Global Warming: Be Gay for a Day

Dear Comrade Global Warming Islamist,

Please note that the Ransom Style Book will no longer recognize the phrase Hillinger, or Quiet Reason or any other AKA used by you. Just as the Associated Press has axed the term Islamist- pun we have replaced your handle with a more apt phrase: Global Warming Islamist. Thank you.

I didn’t have to mention that the paper makes no claim to be “the most accurate map ever!”

The Daily Mail, one of your propaganda rags, does it for them.

And here’s the question that I always ask you Islamist: Since you yourself have admitted that the newspaper inserted the hyperbole, why don ‘t you condemn the hyperbole?

It undermines your case by allowing people like me to point out the ridiculousness of the mainstream media when it comes to global warming. They huff and puff, taking things out of context and generally misinform people what the scientific conclusions mean.

And that’s not the worst of it. You then allow the conversation to be hijacked by ALGORE, Inc. who is nothing but a con man and whose only interest is in making money off of hysteria- all because he couldn’t be president.

Think of this: He lost to George W. Bush. You have to live with THAT.

Until you rid yourself of these fools, you’ll be a loser. And an Islamist.

You practice a religion, not science.

The av temp is higher today than anytime in recorded history despite the "snow in central Europe" -Combat Global Warming: Be Gay for a Day

Dear Comrade Number 2,

No, it’s not actually hotter now than anytime in recorded history.

“Our results indicate that global mean temperature for the decade 2000–2009 has not yet exceeded the warmest temperatures of the early Holocene (5000 to 10,000 yr B.P.),” writes researchers from Harvard and Oregon State.

I understand your confusion though because the study quoted above was used by the media to say: “We’re right. Pass the Carbon Tax! Ban automobiles. Ban Big Gulps.”

But, as usual their hyperbole has turned to hyperventilation. As the site acknowledges: “This discussion needs to be conducted in a sober and unexcited manner; it does not help to overburden the [debate] with symbolic meaning. In some media reports, [some data] has even been hyped as “a pillar of the Kyoto protocol” …or as “proof that humans are warming the Earth”. This is a serious misunderstanding of the scientific meaning of these data.

And before you send email or make comments that point out that RealClimate,org and I have disagreements about global warming, I’ll make the simple observation that we can disagree about some things and still agree about others.

I agree with them that you guys aren’t sober.

Dear Marie,

Mr. Ryan and I aren’t on speaking terms.

It’s not that we’re mad at each other. I just don’t rate high enough to know him or even have a personal conversation with the man. Not that I would anyway.

I let my column do the talking.

Dear Comrade J,

Yeah, yeah, we heard that about Democrats in 2004 too, that they were headed to oblivion. And about Republicans in 2008.

Don’t get too excited about Obama’s victory over a guy with all the charisma of plain yogurt left out too long.

In the real world I love political campaigns.

See ya in 2014, comrade.

You have to go to and scroll waaaaay down to find the reference to handguns in this long but interesting article.

It’s worth the search. Hint: there’s a racial storm brewing in Alabama.

“Until you rid yourself of these fools, you’ll be a loser.”

I cannot throw rocks at all, with this being stated...

Something else I’d like to add to this conversation...Those that read this thread and what the eventual participants may say, I offer this...

Those of is who have, with substance, action, for a very long time, been working in the political trenches, should realize one more thing before you may, or may not feel your efforts were wasted...

Someday, a great many people will rise up and throw off this collective yoke of dependency...And before any of us get indignant, short-tempered or even hostile towards those very people that just now realize the plight of their loss of freedom and liberties, we need to put it in a calm perspective...

First, I would not sit back on my laurels, and watch the show...

Second, see the battle through...Do not be someone that fights like we have for years, see the newbies come up and then go on R&R...We still have a lot of work and cajoling to do (politically speaking of course)...

Third, Make sure that the political activist “legacy” that was created, has sustainability...And respect those that come in behind you...

As I say to folks when I’m given opportunities to lecture on various political outreach and future expectations to foment a conservative political environment in our community, I always point out to the crowd...

“What do you see??? Look around...”

[someone will answer when I open up the floor for this part of my schpeel...]

“I see a bunch of old people.”

Now...When that answer pops up, I very simply say...

“Don’t be offended, but the person is right...As part of a need to grow conservatism, in an age where it is unlikely to be in the minority, we need to foment this idea with younger folks in our communities...Many will reject it, call us old fashioned (I’m only 49 years old), but the reality is that I tell them I do not plan to be around forever, and our legacy should be to create this future, so we can be able to sit back and watch the fruits of our labors...I believe our countries original principles and folks who have given everything and sacrificed their lives is damn well worth it, in our own time!!!”

The destructive political ideologies in this country need to be so damaged, or just utterly destroyed...And the propaganda machine that passes for news networks need to be in the same boat as well...

The narratives that pass for news these days is all we see that fuels the fire in the people that blindly follow such ideologies, and our legacy, our future is dwindling right before our eyes...Our numbers spike every now and then, but it is never sustainable...

In a few months we get to make an adjustment where a big part of the problem roosts...

Personally, I do not think people in this country have the political courage to take this problem out, much less admit that they were wrong in the decisions to place such feckless and in-effective representation in Washington D.C., in our state houses, in our local governments...

I would love to be proven wrong...Not just in November 2014, but in 2016 as well...

“I yield the balance of my time...”
