They don’t care how often they get everything wrong, because their computer models will always say the end is nigh, and it’s time for America to repent.


If the above writing is an example of conservative "thought" which shapes opinion on the right, it explains a lot of things.

"Luxeries" like food can become scarce.  The California drought really hit produce in neighboring states.  Couldn't get a decent head of lettuce and then going out to eat, the restaurant had a bit of romaine with old iceberg deeper in the sandwich.  

Not so much alarmist, just crops will gradually move and higher prices may become part of the landscape.  California cattle had to get trucked east this year but remember when Texas cattle were being trucked north for the first time a couple years back?  Q: Who's going to pay?  A: beef eaters.  Nevada farmers are switching to drought-resistant grape but will wine and cheese jive with the cowboy culture?  Maybe Village People YMCA cowboys perhaps...

It's amazing how little talent or intelligence it takes to regurgitate all of the right wing talking points - and then actually make a living doing it.

More disturbing is how many people nod their heads in agreement with such tripe.

This guy knows his comments are BS.  ditto for most of the commentators on right-wing radio/tv.

They are not gullible dummies.  

But, they are aware they make a ton of $ from people who are gullible dummies.

And, as long as the gullible will keep forking up $ (by tuning in) to get re-assured, the more-clever will keep dishing out BS.

A valid form of good old-fashioned capitalism:    Spot suckers, and take their money.
