today’s Lympians are permeated with urgency embroidered with anger and despair

AlGorezeera was nowhere to be found but the Coca Cola bear was there!

Freezing weather with light snow flurries greeted about 200 climate activists gathered on the steps of the state Capitol noon Monday to demand the state Legislature get serious about climate change.

The climate rally unfolded four hours after the highest predicted tide of 2013 in Budd Inlet. Climate activists draw attention to the winter high tides, calling them a precursor of a future shoreline under siege from sea-level rise…

…Urgency embroidered with anger and despair permeated the so-called Climate Crisis Rally…

…Turns out the Monday high tide of 16.9 feet fell about a foot short…

    Well they eventually formed a human mural that spelled out “NO COAL”. Must be hard to do when your freezing your ass off.

    And what is with the stupid “by the year 2050″ climate predictions lately? Last month it was there’d be no snow at the least of the highest local ski resorts. Over the weekend it was how 6 more inches in ocean rise is going to affect parts of the city by 2050. I’ll gladly plant cactus in the eastern half of Washington if it will make them happy.

    All weather is because of human activity (suddenly). The tribal gods are angry, there must be a sacrifice! A human sacrifice!

    The running gag used to be that whenever Algore came to town to speak on Glowball Worming he brought a blizzard along. I seem to recall a rally in April a few years back that had to be cancelled because it was too cold. I have a neighbor who keeps reminding me that weather isn’t climate, and I keep asking him how many years of cold weather it takes to make a climate trend.

    A tool of UN Agenda 21.

    Of Communist and Islamic tryanny.

    That is what all this is REALLY about.
    I remember when the enviro-whacko leftists extremists said downtown Olympia would be under water by 2010.

    There is a pro gun rally scheduled for Saturday at noon at the WA Capitol grounds, near the Winged Victory WW I monument.
    It will be interesting to see the crowd numbers on that.

    That deserved to be said again.

    They could try throwing a virgin in a volcano. If they can find one.

    A virgin, I mean.

    ‘Lympians: eternal 12-year-olds.
    They don’t know squat about how the world works,
    but they insist that you do things their way,
    or they’ll stomp their feet again.

    Ain’t no ‘Lympian happy, less’n everbody’s more miserabler ‘n ‘em.

    If they knew what their coats were made from, they’d probably go drown themselves in a toilet.

    Wool is redistribution … thermal justice!
    Cotton is wool for vegans!
    Leather is recycling!
    Artificial fibers save animals! (What? From petroleum? *aaaagh!*)
    Rubber is natural! (What? They do what to the trees?*aaaagh!*)

    Quit using electricity and petroleum for heat and light! Go back to using natural gas coal wood whale oil animal dung … ohh, crap!

    Quit using automobiles for transportation! Go back to using diesel buses diesel trains coal-fired trains horses mules oxen animal-towed barges palanquins … ohh, crap!

    That’s why they have to dehumanize us, Claire. Human sacrifice is primitive, subhuman sacrifice seems to be acceptable.
