    ENVIRONMENTALISM INSURRECTIONISM


    Glacial melting? Like "global warming" a conspiracy of gays and socialists to overthrow Capitalism and establish an Islamic Caliphate.
    It's not climate temperature change or sea level rising or atmospheric carbon increase or higher levels of acidic lakes or forests or other myths and manias of the lunatic, life-hugging, Left.
    What's happened is incrementally faulty instruments used in calibrations and measurements and analyses and other determinations of levels and percentiles and degrees etc. The tools of the fools have been tinkered.
    Let us respect the true American values and venues of self-determination and free markets and private sector privilege . . . . and let us restore our heritage as a Patriots, Not panderers to false prophecies.
    BRING BACK OUR ASBESTOS, OUR CIGARETTES, OUR LEAD GASOLINE, OUR
    OPEN-BURN DUMPS, OUR SOD BUSTING, OUR AEROSOL ELIXIRS, . . . . .
    OUR SELF-DETERMINATION !!!!

    Re. seagulls . . . and W. Mass. companies (might have been Springfield) . . . . years ago I read of a company that made golf balls. For testing, as well as employee recreation, there were areas to drive and putt, and balls would not all be collected when the lunch break was over, or the tests completed. And seagulls didn't discern other than "roundish white things" -- and deluded that they were clams, the gulls would swoop down, pick up a ball, soar above, and drop it (to break open a clam) . . . . on windshields and convertible tops and even on people. It was an "onset" phenomenon, probably resulting from one diverting (or lost) gull who then returned and somehow conveyed to the rest of the flock, ". .. Western Mass ain't that far . . . . they're all over the ground. We don't even have to get wet!!! Drop from high enough and they break open. Taste kind of rubbery though . . . .


    "I may be a Luddite. Others have decried the idea of sound or pictures through the air, notables have negated any chance of anyone traveling over 30 mph (would cause insanity), and on and on.
    But to me, self-driving cars are an absurdity as well as a luxury. "Safety-assisted auto-tech" is commendable. But for the thing to totally drive itself? So the occupant (probably mostly just the one commuting) can spend more time working? Or watching TV?
    And imagine the hassle of a self-drive car at inspection sticker time -- if something isn't quite right now not just with lights or tires or tire pressure monitors or the 100 other computerized gimmicks. Imagine what it will cost if you're rejected because the automatic driving complex is faulty? Gettin' that fixed won't be cheap.
