    We are all Kooks

    We are all kooks.

    I am a kook when it comes to human-caused global warming as the primary reason for the warming trend we find ourselves in. I believe some of the science is real and some of the science is manipulated. I believe the government agencies that fund the climate change studies are inclined to seek out studies to promote the idea of human-caused catastrophe in the future as a means to grow their budgets.

    In what areas are you a kook?
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    I believe in 2000 coffee was bad for me.
    In 2005 it was good for me.
    In 2009 it was bad for me.
    In 2017 its good for me.

    The ice caps have been melting for 150-200 years. Nothings changed. It may be warming for a period, them cooling for a period. Get over yourselves.
    Blacks and poor people been voting Democrat for years and years. Hey are no better off. Vote for economics and traditions. Be part of saving America from the nutty left. The ones that highjacked this jaskassery Party.

    This is a board. If you post too much we will grow bored. Don't be boorish. Just list and explain the top hundred or so.

    Okay. In what areas of life do you realize you are a kook?

    Not sure if this is "kook" or paranoia

    I do not believe that crap about government surveillance of every thing we say, do, eat, drink, smoke, etc. is designed to protect us from terrorism, but designed to make Orwell's 1984 a reality.

    Just exactly how has our government protected us from terrorist acts by spying on us?

    The Russians told the U.S. Government about the Tsarneyev brothers and we ignored the warning. Think how many lives and limbs would have been saved if the government would have decided to spy on the Tsarneyev brothers instead of my phone call to Dominoes Pizza.

    The wife and accomplice of the San Bernardino shooter lied on her Finance visa application, providing a false address. Did the government decide to investigate her?

    This crap of "we need to be allowed to spy on you for your own good" is a bunch of crap.

    Is that kooky enough for you?
