Comment You broke it, you bought it (Score 1, Troll) 308

It's been part of the "conservative" orthodoxy for decades that corporations have First Amendment rights and money = speech. Remember, "Corporations are people, my friend"? It's unseemly for them to want to cry now because Democrats have done better under those rules.

I don't remember hearing anything from them when a top Trump donor (or Trump's son-in-law) used their newspaper to push pro-Trump stories, or when the Koch Brothers (and ALEC more broadly) were influencing elections from the national level down to local school boards.

Anytime they want to overturn Citizens United or pass a constitutional amendment asserting that only natural humans have guaranteed civil rights, I'll be glad to start taking them seriously.

You might have read up on this if anything that contradicted your position didn't send you into convulsions trigglypuff.

From the article:

"But it's not just happening in far-away places like Bangladesh or the Maldives. It's happening right here in the US.

On Tangier Island, Virginia, in the southern Chesapeake Bay, residents are facing the inundation of a place some local families have called home since the 1600s."

That's an island off the Mississippi Delta. They have been coming and going since before homo sapiens was a species.

Tangiers Island is in the Chesapeake Bay, on the Virginia side, nowhere near the Mississippi Delta.

The article talks about two places being drowned by climate change, which you would know if actually reading an article wasn't your kryptonite.

Yep there's ocean drive (hint it's named ocean drive because it's next to the ocean) flooding. Damn it looks like Atlantis.

So, you're saying that the live webcams set up by the Miami Beach Department of Tourism doesn't show any flooding? Well, I must have gotten some bad information about the flooding in Miami Beach then. I guess the photos on and the Miami Herald were just photoshopped.
