Nexus 6 has a new cartoon making fun of global warming denialists.
I was surprised that Sonja of Energy and Environment didn’t jump at the chance for a merger with the sadly-now-defunct Weekly World News.
HAHAHAHA!!! That was absolutely priceless!!!
As Fat Tony from the Simpsons would say, ‘Its funny because its true’.
Well it wasn’t that funny, soe I’m going to change the subject. Hey Jeff, how do you like Chavez as president for life? Some “democracy”
Trust me ben, if you are familiar with Energy and Environment it *is* funny.
Chavez is bonzer. I have a huge poster of him in my bedroom between the posters of Karl Marx and Noam Chomsky.
Hey Jeff, how do you like Chavez as president for life? Some “democracy”
The United States allowed Presidents to be re-elected any number of times until after FDR died. Some “democracy”.
Thankfully, in today’s United States, only Senators and Representatives can serve for life. That’s democracy for you!
Now, Ben, how exactly does allowing someone to run for president as often as he or she wants make a country “undemocratic”?
“Now, Ben, how exactly does allowing someone to run for president as often as he or she wants make a country “undemocratic”?”
It isn’t. But declaring yourself above the Constitution (violating the “no-three-terms” amendment) is.
Oh, CHAVEZ. Never mind.
This thread’s been derailed enough…
Alright Tim, I’ll take your word for it. On the other hand, I kinda like your poster arrangement. I think all my profs have the same ones
Now that you guys mention it, I’m all for term limits on congress critters. However, almost all of them eventually retire or lose their seat at election time. I doubt Chavez is going anywhere by defeat at the polls in his lifetime.
The thing about the American presidents that made them unique, up until FDR, was that even though there was no official limit on the number of terms they could serve, they self limited their terms to two.
AFAK, they were ready to make Washington King, but he would have none of that. I’d like to see Chavez turn down a similar situation.
“Duh, what’s wrong with Energy and Environment?”
One could only hope Chavez becomes Venezuela’s FDR.
I doubt Chavez is going anywhere by defeat at the polls in his lifetime.
Oh, I see, it’s undemocratic because a majority might actually vote for him!
Thanks for clearing that up, Ben.
Well. obviously it’s totally unheard of for far-left Latin American leaders to give up power voluntarily:
Any more links of these out there? this one was priceless.
