Some of my self-righteous, once-upon-a-time friends don't like my plain speaking when I get upset with the crap religionists, the Tea Party and other ultra-conservatives shovel our way.
One chided me for "naughty language." I retorted by challenging him to sue me.
When we are subjected to outright lies by sanctimonious deceivers with an agenda to confuse and obfuscate, there is a time to call them out and drop the nicey nice facade they like to put forth.
Every conman is nicey nice! That's how they worm their way in and breeze by your defenses!
Al Gore got riled up and outspoken at the Aspen Institute last Thursday. Hear it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SfWdDP5v_A
The "rant" was labeled humorous on You Tube. No, it isn't! It's much too serious a subject to be called "humorous!"
It was "plain speaking!"
It's time to call out and thoroughly expose all these pseudo-everythings. They're everwhere! They're in climate science. They're in Paleontolgy (creationists). They're in economics. Anywhere you find the corrosive influence of any rabid religionists and ultra-conservatives, you are going to find pseudo-somethings with their insidious lies and misinformation!
Bullshit is bullshit. It's time to label it for the crap it is and be plain and unapologizing for doing so.
Hats off to you, Al.
Keep it up!
