He has some valid points, yes, and his sardonic nature is endearing. However, I don't entirely agree with him- especially not on his view of global warming. There are loads of resources, links, and statistics on global warming, and it's a very real occurance and problem.

Global warming is not only warming- while some places undoubtedly heat up horrendously (and others perhaps none), places like Wisconsin and Canada are experiencing horrible, worsening winters. The average temperature at night here (for the past month or so) has been in the negatives. I can't call much of any of that "green" rant "valid".

His border patrol ideas (which I personally, morally disagree with) are more of a personal opinion, and I cannot begrudge him for having them. He's entitled to it, and I think he brings up some good points- the Patriot Act, as far as I'm concerned, is a joke.

Yes, well he did cover a lot of ground in his opinions didn't he? What I found particularly amusing was how he intertwined 'our government' with 'the people' as if they were both acting as one, and yet against each other simultaneously.

*Grins widely* Yes, that was a rather ironic parallel, wasn't it?

You should have said so on his blog.

Agreed. It is, however, in some cultures, considered uncouth to begin immediately posting negative comments on a stranger's entry.

Precicely. Although this doesn't have much to do with my culture, I just don't think it's right to post negatively on someone's blog when I don't know them. My few exceptions are when someone is outwardly mocking/dissing/critisizing topics like homosexuality or the likes. Otherwise, if it's political, I generally let them be, since I do truly believe everyone is entitled to their own opinion, even if I personally disagree.

However, perhaps I should have brought up the bit about global warming to them, though. He seems a bit in the dark about the subject...
