I watched the Democratic "Debate" from Iowa on CBS last night. Ended up liking Hillary less, Martin O'Malley a bit more, and Bernie Sanders a lot more. This morning, Peggy Noonan took after Sanders with another bit showing her ignorance. Peggy Noonan who years ago thought dolphins saved a Cuban immigrant at sea, thought Sanders relating problems in mid-east and likely increase in problems to global warming was daft and just an appeal to liberal greens.
The problem in Syria started with drought that caused rural farmers to move from new "deserts" to Syrian cities. We might wonder if this is merely a weather event or a consequence of global warming, but it suggests that Sanders was not off base in linking Syrian problems to global warming. Why CBS, ABC or NBC brings this cow Noonan out of the weeds is a mystery to me. Other links related to climate change and terrorism, war, refugees, etc. Mother Jones--Sanders hits it out of the park, National Geographic--Climate Change sparks rebellion.
The Sabbath gasbags were also hammering all Democratic candidates for not having worked out new programs to stop ISIS pigs from causing more horror and carnage. Of course, nobody else (especially Sabbath Gasbags) has developed a whole new program in the few hours since the Paris murders and global war on western civilization by ISIS pigs.
It might seem that Democratic candidates might look at the support Trump is getting and think that perhaps building two walls across our US southern borders with a 1500 foot wide kill zone between them might put a near instantaneous stop to illegal immigration which is now an obvious threat to peace and prosperity to the US.
Expecting our immigration system to speedily and effectively control immigration or allow it from places like Syria is absurd without also committing huge sums of money and personnel to the sorting task.
But, in short, no matter the problems of Hillary and her Wall Street connections claiming no relation between huge contributions and policy right after she opposed a $15 minimum wage, the three Democratic candidates all made the Republican Clown candidates look like irrelevancy in the real world of policy and politics.
