Question of the day...

Why is it that if a liberal hears that temperatures MIGHT be one degree warmer a hundred years from now, they freak out over their great-great-grandchildren THEORETICALLY having to deal with an increase in sea level, but if you show them the ACTUAL budget numbers and projections, and try and get them to see how our spending is unsustainable, and WILL affect them and their CHILDREN 10-15 years from now, they refuse to see it?!


I have to head off to work, so talk amongst yourselves! :o)

  • No dear, but he made us the largest debtor in the world

    No, dear. I think that was the democatically controlled 110 and then the 111 Congress and PBO. Just another answer to this question as to 'why can't the liberals accept.....'. It was the dems who did this to us and not the repub.

  • Progressive/Liberals do not comprehend economics.

    Answer by Carpy at 8:38 AM on Feb. 18, 2011

  • In the same way conservatives can't comprehend science.

    Do you mean conservatives are not stupid enough to swallow the false theory of global warming even in light of the farce and fudginng of numbers that has come out?

  • Ya'll need some glasses. The OP said.....A liberal.....not all liberals or liberals.

    I think SOME of the liberals that do not respond to the economic crisis don't simply because they cannot fathom the conservatives being right about something so massively important. I think other liberals that don't understand won't listen for the same reason. Then of course there are the ones that simply aren't the sharpest knife in the drawer.

  • Personally, I separate liberal from progressive/liberal. Liberals are ok.


    You are a progressive.

  • Sisteract brings reason to the table. She is not a progressive liberal. Friday isn't either. A few others are not but the bulk on here and a large percent in the democrat party are. They and you are the blind sheep.

  • Can someone explain to me how the sea level is going to rise from "global warming"?

    And before you say it will be caused by the ice caps melting then explain how you can fill a glass with water and ice cubes and let it stand there and let the ice cubes melt without removing any water. Does it overflow when the ice melts? Yeah, didn't think so.

  • Because, the liberals POLITICIANS that make the decisions about the economics of today that will effect the tomorrows are more interested in the power and instant gratification they get. It isn't about us or our children. It is only about them in the here and now

     Don't be myopic, NEITHER party cares about children, the populace or the long term future-
