Can't really hide the PD-isms in your tone

PATRIOT act provisions
Rescinding executive orders
Hard right constitutionalist for 1, if not 2, Supreme Court picks
Budgetary discretionary measures; "states rights"

It amuses me you assume I don't know of which I speak.

Are you afraid of these things, or are you prepared to deal with them? Do you fully understand them? Do you understand the arguments that people make for and against them? Is there anything you can even do about them?

You're assuming that I'm assuming anything at all. You said it yourself: this isn't about you. I told you that if I had your concerns and your fears that those were the kinds of questions I'd ask myself.

But now that you mention it, I have no reason to think you know anything at all. Or that anyone here does. Including myself.

I know one thing: ideologues dislike epistemic dilemmas.

Lay off the conspiritard juice, kids. You're embarrassing yourselves.

Also: is "butthurt" the only word these children know? You're culture-jamming your own forum. Welcome to the ignore list.

Have you heard of eco-fascism before?

I honestly can't say that I have. What's up?

It's a promising movement. Fascism is the only way to ensure people will respect the environment and take action on climate change

I don't believe that this is RPspag. I don't have certain proof, but I REALLY can't say that I get the same vibe overall from posting style and other signs. That's not to say they're dissimilar overall, but...
You can't get out backward.  You have to go forward to go back.. better press on! - Willie Wonka, PBUH

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

It wouldn't be the first time I've unintentionally disrupted things in an online community with a dramatic entrance only to be accused of being someone else who came before me. You guys want to talk about ticking off Bingo boxes? If I was playing the "predictability game" with this place, I'd have won that Cuisinart five times over by now.

Heh. Promoting that would be a great campaign. Has anyone made fliers?

Yeah, close enough for government wok.
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.
