only one of a number of stupid visual aids he had... I also saw Luke on a taun-taun and Aquaman on a sea horse

and his serious solution to climate change was more babies

a) more babies would make it worse
b) that's admitting a problem but saying future people have to solve it, that we can't do shit

this link appears to have whole thing in video and transcript form

http://www..._is_to_have_more_children.html

I guess Mike Lee Jr. can also have the 'more babies' argument

And Mike Lee III can have the 'mo' babies' argument

And Mike Lee IV can have the 'mo' baybeez' argument

it takes about 10 seconds for a smart person to read what he was saying and know he was making a joke, but an idiot like TW legit doesnt know.

You realize that jokes are supposed to be funny, right?

if you spend more than 10 secs you'll realize he's not joking as he explains the argument and quotes an economist (though misrepresenting his point, much like how he misrepresents the green new deal)

Tw,

He even opened his speech with "I'm treating GND exactly the seriousness it deserves."

Anyway, the presentation itself wasn't particularly funny, but the visuals are great.

On a side note he's apparently a direct descendant of the guy who, as a sort of 1800s cowboy/Mormon theocracy enforcer, lead the Mountain Meadow's massacre in southern Utah.

yes, his dinosaur/aquaman shit was a joke, & his cow/airplane banning an embarrassment... how do you joke about a joke version of the bill (banning planes isn't in the green new deal)

but his more babies is not a joke... point out the humor in his claims


"
More people mean bigger markets for innovation.

More babies mean more forward-looking adults – the sort we need to tackle long-term, large scale problems.

American babies, in particular, are likely going to be wealthier, better educated, and more conservation-minded than children raised in still-industrializing regions.
"

hahahahaha!...?

i guess the idea of American babies being better educated might be a joke considering Trump is president & republicans think scientists are liars...

"Lol sebs green new deal lost 57 to 0."

Actually it was a Mitch McConnell's bill.

His bill lost 57-0.

maybe McConnell's constituents will realize what a corrupt piece of shit he is... (though they wont)

'oh, i can't bring spending bills to the floor if Trump won't sign it, that's ridiculous, obviously our purpose is meaningless & the views of the King are all that matter'

but w/ a bill to try to embarrass Dems: 'sure, no problem'
