Cancer Blowing In The Wind

There are times where even I have to comment on the level of stupidity I am forced to witness. The idea that wind turbines cause cancer is just stupid. It’s not even misinformed, it’s not informed at all. And, honestly, it’s this sort of stupidity that makes it increasingly difficult to respect folks who vote republican in general, and who support this president in particular.  People can disagree on issues where there is a level of honesty, and where the points being debated are actually debatable. I’m pro choice, but I can understand the moral argument against it. And, frankly, the gut level uneasiness for the procedure itself outside of morning after pills. I get where there is an argument there.

But things like this, where a politician is just saying random stupid dishonest crap? He knows it won’t matter, he knows the GOP will protect him and, in the end, support him. They’ll find some roundabout way of arguing he’s right, or more likely they’ll say he’s joking. It’s just as shitty of a joke as it is a dishonest statement, though. Hey, you’re going to get cancer! What about that is funny? It’s not, and he wasn’t joking. He was lobbing political red meat because that’s all he does.

I’m just going to end it here. I think I just had to gripe about the stupidity of this for a moment.
