these tweets are real

This is what twitter was made for. 

If there isn’t already, someone needs to start a firm which helps people lock down their social media accounts so that clients and employers can’t find your “college days” photos.

Details, and more details, and more.

There are charges, just no proper due process (trial) to prove guilt or innocence of those charges.

You’re using it incorrectly. Its a great way to pick up breaking news and good news articles. You can also follow various institutes, politicians, and economists.

Why can’t you just do that on facebook and just like all of the institutes, politicians, economists, and news sources? You don’t “need” any friends on Facebook. It can be whatever you want.

Twitter has no point.

Also, that’s partly what my Tumblr is for.

Well, Facebook is horrible. That’s a good reason.

And tumblr is B- for news at best.

Because facebook filters content and trims some updates, links, statuses and such out of your feed. Twitter doesn’t filter anyone out of your stream. 

Twitter also has Retweets and easy to follow conversations, where you can discover additional people you’d love to hear more from. Facebook doesn’t do a great job of “sharing” content between people who aren’t friends. Facebook also hides a large portion of a “conversation” once it goes over so many comments. 

Then there’s the whole privacy thing. Twitter doesn’t ask for any private information outside of an email and a password. You don’t need to share pictures of yourself, your birthday, your address, none of that. Just make an account and join the conversation. 

Twitter is probably the best social media platform that the internet has given us thus far.

So, it all began when I retweeted a tweet by Jim Treacher, The Daily Caller blogger. I didn’t even know who this guy was but someone had retweeted his tweet about the CIA closing their Climate Change office. 
I found that amusing, both the fact that the CIA has a climate change office and that they have closed it (the less CIA the better, right?) I thought little of the implications of what that retweet would mean (no I don’t blame humans for all of global warming but yes it exists).
So after some back and forth with a few twitter friends jumping in to the convo, Jim Treacher jumped in so I asked him a simple question that would square things up before we continue the conversation. I asked, “Is climate change real, (regardless of cause)?”
Fair question, right? Especially if you are going to debate someone on the merits of the CIA having an office that tracks climate change, you want to know where they stand on the meta-topic at hand. 
Well, in typical pseudo-libertarian fashion, Jim ducked me polite question and resorted to calling me “dear” in every tweet, as if that’s an insult and as if that would actually anger me.
This is the unbridled stupidity of the pseudo-libertarians and this is what I hate about politics. It’s leeches like Jim and his boss Tucker Carlson who are going to ruin the liberty movement. Some of them couldn’t get into Karl Rove’s big boy’s club for NeoCons and others are opportunists who saw the momentum shifting and jumped on the “libertarian” bandwagon early. Either way, it’s the down fall the movement and it’s why most people don’t take it seriously.  
Anyway, feel free to jump in on the twitter convo. It’s fun poking The Daily Caller readers on twitter.

People always say that the world has energy issues that we can’t address and I just shake my head. 
We do have some energy issues, but it’s not that we can’t address them, it’s that we approach them in the wrong fashion. There is such abundant energy all around us and we aren’t actively trying to capitalize on it. Not just the atomic energy that the sun unleashes but the core of the Earth itself creates all sorts of energy, yet we just dig for more of the inefficient brand of fuels like oil and coal. 
Maybe one day we can regain access to the works of Nikola Tesla and we can see what he was actually working on and what great breakthroughs he discovered.
