    Do the Zombie prequel!! Definitely do it. My idea would be putting Tom in a Krugman mask and subjecting Bob to mainstream media Clockwork Orange style, with Bob coming out of it as a zombie parroting mainstream media talking points.

    Nice going, Tom! Couldn’t quite bring yourself to commit to what Rep. Omar said as being the truth. Way to cling to that 3×5! But what should one expect from someone who airs a “debate” framed to how BIG Israel should BE? I’m thinking 3×5. Perhaps you should worry less about “proactive” and focus more on not suffering so much from pragmatism (and not just in regards to traffic laws either).

    So, thinking about how to apply this to climate. And the argument for CO2- reduction is not made in good faith:
    Al Gore doesn’t believe a word of it, as proven by the fact, that he has never attempted to stop Obama (8 years, 7 wars; 1 Nobel for peace, 0 days of peace; nobody can trump 0, not even literally Hitler), So Gore was OK with Obama driving the world to the brink of catastrophic climate change.
