    My leftist better half told me this am “there’s a killer heat wave in the midwest this weekend” I said “all heat waves are killers if you don’t prepare for them” been pretty quiet here most of the day LOL

    Alarmist try to hide the decline, hide the Medieval Warm Period and most important, hide the 1930’s.

  3. People dealt with the Dust Bowl Days in the Depression era through resilience and a determination to move on.

    I wonder what they would have thought about people (of the own country!) who, nearly eighty years later, “dealt with” drought by DEMANDING an economic depression through high pitched demands of their own Government, and who blamed drought (and anything else that produced existential angst in them) on cars and carnivores.

    No one back then would have believed it. Nobody.

    FDR’s fault.

    Of course FDR had his henchmen blaming Hoover for this and everything else (the smearing began during the long lame-duck overlap, November 1932 to March 1933).

    Who does that remind you of? Yep, President Dumbo.
