Dog Humping

Folks, the grievance studies story gets better. Look at the comments the reviewers made to this piece of fake scholarship. They are more out there than the scholarship itself.

  1. It sounds like they’re trying to be polite to a d—-d weird paper that they are trying to take at face value. I’ve written like this on papers that really I wondered why were even sent out but then thought gosh, this is a misguided seminar paper from some M.A. student somewhere who knows they must publish, I will try to play it straight and be nice.

    1. Speaking of dog humping, when I registered with the Republican Party over fifty years ago, I never thought it would be this easy to shoot fish in a barrel! The Democrats can’t find their ass with both hands 🙂

      1. Well, having scientific training and all, how do you justify commitment to a program so damaging to the environment as the Republican one? Also — you’re a psychiatrist, right? I have never figured out why the Republicans are so self-destructive — actually, with the environmental regulations just loosened so we can get another Deepwater Horizon incident, or four, in the Gulf, it seems as though they’re actually trying to commit murder-suicide. What the motivation for all of this — from both a scientific and intrapsychic-type point of view — I just have not been able to figure out.

        [I know the excuses are energy independence, jobs and defense but those sound like mere excuses. And I know people calm themselves by saying God will take them to Heaven (I hear this daily) and God means the earth to end (I hear this daily as well, I’m in the state where the 68% of T-voters also tend to believe in a young earth and human coexistence with dinosaurs, the Loch Ness monster being real and being a dinosaur according to them), but I don’t think they believe these things, I think they just say them to stop conversation.]

        What is really going on, what is behind this death- and destruction- drive?

        1. We can ask this about many things, though. What about the self-destructive drive of the people who oppose barriers to free trade (tariffs), which are the only real measure that can but brakes on consumerism and help the planet?

          It’s not just Republicans.

          1. I’m not for free trade but you’re talking about a measure, a method, etc. I mean these people who say outright: I want the ecosystems that sustain life as we know it to be destroyed. I hope this happens as soon as possible. I want to rain fire on someone. I mean, seriously. “It’s a nice day to go out and kill something.”

          Here’s a comment on global warming that I posted back in November 2016, right after the Presidential election. My views on the subject haven’t changed.

          “Man-made alteration of the earth’s climate is real, an inevitable trade-off of the advance of civilization across the globe, like the extinction of the passenger pigeon and the destruction of irreplaceable rain forests. At this point, its consequences are irreversible, even if all the countries on this planet agreed to leave all fossil fuels in the ground and go back to an eighteenth-century lifestyle — which will never happen, despite all the international agreements to start discussing the issue. China and India think that the U.S. is being hypocritical asking them to stop their rush to industrialization, now that America has completed the process, and I don’t blame them.

          “But the apocalyptic cries of doomsday by the year 2100 are exaggerated, science-fiction nonsense. The climate change can be managed and brought under control — to
          the extent that the human race can control the physical world — by reasonable measures, like those being undertaken by California. There’s no serious politician in the U.S. — including Hillary — who believes that anything more draconian is achievable.”

          Today the Republicans are tinkering around the edges, loosening overly restrictive regulations imposed by the Democrats that did little to actually protect the environment but were harmful to the economy.
