    And the AGW freaks think ‘Climate’ started just a few decades ago…simpletons all.
    O have said this time and time again…those who ignore History will repeat said History and all of its dangers.
    Bonhoeffer was correct – Stupidity is the most dangerous Human defect ever!
    I am of average intelligence (135 on the old scale) and when I read and listen to certain people I just want to force them to learn the facts or be removed from Polite Society…but this is America where Men are Free and all types exist – ignorant (stupid) to Smart (intelligent) and Life goes on…
    Arm up, Farm up and Pray up!
