    Clair, in Michigan this is the day you can smoke grass but you can’t cut you own.

    DougM, I think Mary Hopkin would agree – Those were the days.

    I’m still reading the posts every day or so, just not much to comment lately.

    … a worker-led mass investment in green infrastructure to save our planet

    Any chance AOC is somehow related to Dennis the Peasant?

    Still here, I was in Olympia Sunday. Reminded me of the Tea Party days.
    I’d post a picture but apparently that is above my pay grade.

    Yeah, still here in the New Democrat People’s Republic of Virginia, with His Lordship Guvnor Blackface, creating new voting rights and voters out of his ass an’ steppin’ all over the Constitution every day, but he does have a nice fresh haircut.

    What could possibly be next? Access to designer pints of ice cream??

    I’m just going to start calling her “Sandy One-Note”.

    If Green Infrastructure was viable it wouldn’t need decades of gov’t subsidies.
    Remember, Green Science! is neither.

    Illegal use of an exclamation point. The word Science can only be punctuated with a question mark. Cause Science always questions, and must always be questioned.
    Otherwise it must be replaced with the word Dogma.

    “Green Dogma!”
    Better.

    I’m ALWAYS here. Sometimes I’m actually aware of it.

    Just got back from a trip into the Badlands to pick up some meds. No mask, no gloves, no hand sanitizer. Just me, Old Age, and guts.

    Something dawned on me while I was out foraging. Living here in the desert, the temps will soon exceed 100 degrees on a daily basis. Unlike Governor Doofus, who has air conditioning every where he goes, even in his Official Doofusmoblie limo, protected by heavily armed State Police, a lot of us “endangered” Elders aren’t so lucky.

    For years, we have depended on our ability to seek out air conditioned spaces, such as fast food joints and shopping malls, where we can bask in cool, life-saving climate that someone else is paying for while we share a large cola for hours.

    So for the love of God, Senior Governor, open the public spaces, or deal with old, dead people, frying like eggs on the summer sidewalks.

    ^^ That was my point.
    Green Science! is neither (green nor science).

    Still here, Boss. Yeah – AOC said, since oil is so cheap that oil producers are paying people to take it, let’s spend our money instead on prohibitively expensive and unreliable wind and solar power! And this young woman got a degree in economics from Boston University?! BU should refund her tuition.

    ^18., Doug M: Yeah, guess you’re right – she got credentials (“I’m sma-a-a-aht – see dis paper?”) and BU got her money.

    I just looked-up Mary Hopkin
    I bow to your cultural knowledge

    DoudM @ 20
    What can I say, just memories from my Junior High days.
    Knowledge of a culture lived is easier to recall and harder to be lied to about.

    ^ TheBigHarry

    It made my day (rather, early morning) to see your reference to “Junior High”….so thank you.

    I believe the beginning of the spiraling downward of our country can be pinpointed to the year the term “middle school” was coined.
