Guess who?

Such a perfectly accurate and appropriate title.

There really is no end to their malfeasance and hatred of the 99%.

I want that movie. !

[-] 1 points by shooz (26680) 1 year ago

If we all wrote nice letters, do you think we could get them to send a free copy vapro?

Never mind.

I doubt he'd watch it.

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20508) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

he probably wouldn't watch it - but the whole idea of his receiving it would certainly make me giggle . . .

Speaking of giggling . . .

ONce I laughed for two whole days - almost constantly. You know that feeling, call it hilarity - when you laugh and laugh and can't stop - then for a spell you aren't actually laughing but you just might, any second . . .

two whole days

I think I saw a commercial indicating that that kind of emotional response may be . . . mal adaptive . . .

Is that true?

[-] 1 points by shooz (26680) 1 year ago

I think you reached that point in your life where you decided to pull your head out of your ass and take look around.

Upon doing so, your psyche knew it had but two choices.

To laugh

Or to cry.

Your psyche made the louder of the two choices.

Because of the volume, you were noticed by others.

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20508) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

as a matter of fact, I was noticed by others. It started in the mall, late on a sunny sunday afternoon. The sound echoed very strangely in the empty space. I could see it was intimidating an older woman walking the other way - and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it.

It was a bit strange. It was different when I got outside - but I wouldn't really call it any better . . . .

[-] 1 points by shooz (26680) 1 year ago

I get funny looks all the time for laughing out loud at the absurdities I see all around me, and don't get me anywhere near a TV and it's absurdities.

People get mad at for laughing at their favorite "drama".

[-] -1 points by vaprosvyeh (-400) 1 year ago

I'd have no problems watching it and deciding for myself whether it's fact filled or propaganda filled. You two, on the other hand, have already decided that it's a film worthy of an academy award filled with truth and facts and completely brilliant and you didn't even have to watch it!! Brilliant.

Couldn't find uncontrollable giggling but name calling, swearing, and aggressive behavior like choking someone with a necktie are all on the clinic list of mal adaptive behavior.

[-] 2 points by ZenDog (20508) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

how about giggling while I'm pulling on your tie - does that count? Ok, it wouldn't be giggling - more like laughing hysterically

[-] -1 points by vaprosvyeh (-400) 1 year ago

There there ZenDog. I doubt your sanity just as much as I doubt everything else. Ok....maybe more than some things. It's all about evidence.

Sweet! Love the title. I would have gone with Greedy Lying Bigoted Bastards.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26680) 1 year ago

Polluting the World and politics for their own profit, ever since daddy died and he taught them well how to do that..

[-] -1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Might as well cut to the chase.

I'm thinking that AGW need not have been mentioned at all.

They are still greedy lying bastards, one and all. Their pollution record alone proves that.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26680) 1 year ago

You may have folks like this in Australia, but for you're sake I hope nothing this bad.

These brothers Koch are like the demon knights of all pollution.

They just help spearhead the oil corporations angle.

These are all from separate facilities, in different States, and I'm sure a little digging could find plenty more.

They're very pro-active politically too, in a negative kind of way.

[-] -1 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Yes, I've been watching them for a while.

http://inspirationgreen.com/koch-brothers-products.html

The thing with the push for globalisation and "free trade" agreements is, it made the world a lot smaller, and much more accessible to the likes of these lying criminal bastards.

Australia hasn't escaped from corporate greed and criminality.

If you've watched any of the zendog v vapro, AWG threads, that was exactly what vapro did, he relied wholly on attempts at instilling doubt.

Which is exactly what tobacco corporations did too, although they eventually lost.

They even used many of the same marketing, consulting, research and PR firms

[-] 2 points by ZenDog (20508) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

that is exactly what he did - and continues to do - sow doubt.

[-] 0 points by shooz (26680) 1 year ago

everywhere he posts.

Does this cover everything?

[-] 0 points by shooz (26680) 1 year ago

It actually doesn't cover anything at all.

Kind of like you.

[-] -2 points by vaprosvyeh (-400) 1 year ago

If there was no room for doubt, it couldn't be sewn ZenDog.

But it is obvious that anything that fits your agenda, or shooz agenda is TRUE...whether it's based on actual FACT or not, but any and all actual facts that don't fit your agenda are to be ridiculed and anyone who dares to present them is to be portrayed as evil.

That's called propaganda and your constant need to reply with logical fallacies is all the evidence anyone with a brain needs to doubt you.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26680) 1 year ago

Just because you don't point out your own logical fallacies, doesn't mean they're not there.

I have no agenda, I just accept what is happening all around me.

Your biggest mistake is your steadfast belief that I've never doubted it.

I have.

I just learned better, as I observed the World around me and read studies.

It's real, as you've said you accept, and WE are affecting it.

You can doubt all you want, the Planet doesn't care.

When it reacts to what we are doing to it, you're not gonna like it.

[-] 0 points by vaprosvyeh (-400) 1 year ago

Are you going to like it if it reacts to something we don't do to it? If an asteroid hits us? If a solar flare takes out the grid? If we end up in a New Ice Age? Or are all of those things FINE with you as long as humans have nothing to do with them?

All I'm asking, is for SOMEONE to prove to me exactly how much WE are affecting it. I don't believe in shutting down entire industries and economies of countries based on hysterical predictions made 30 years ago that are being proven today to be WAY off. I don't believe in fear mongering. I don't believe in redistributing wealth by attacking and destroying people and companies and industries simply because they have money and I don't.

Feel free to point out my logical fallacies because I loathe them and want to eradicate them in my own beliefs just as much as anyone elses. Why would anyone WANT to embrace them personally or engage in them to attack others?

[-] 1 points by shooz (26680) 1 year ago

Your entire first paragraph.

Most, if not all of the second.

The third is just a wasted effort.

[-] -1 points by vaprosvyeh (-400) 1 year ago

So establishing for me where my logic fails would be a wasted effort to you?

Thanks a lot.

[-] 1 points by shooz (26680) 1 year ago

If you don't know what a red herring is, why are blaming anyone else for anything at all?

You are become logical fallacy personified.
