Climate change, or leftist socialist propaganda perpetrated by the spineless hacks of the liberal base, created to terrorize and befuddle the masses? Hint: it’s the second one. Let me dish out a dose of reality. Global warming is a hoax. Rather, what the term has come to mean in our modern society...

Imagine that every weatherman in the country is telling you a massive tornado is about to run into Montgomery County and destroy Rockville -- would you try to find shelter, go to your basement, even evacuate, or would you plug your ears and keep going about your life and wait for the tornado to sweep...
