>Rich oligarchs keep pushing for legislation which hurts everyone who doesn't make more than 500k a year.

>They hold immoral and destructive views which drive that legislation.

>Constantly spew those views like an erupting geyser of sewage. Implore everyone else to self flagulate for their sins against diversity and the environment.

>Meanwhile they live in a fence off 100,000 square foot mansion which requires its own coal burning power plant to heat/cool.

>Constantly navel gaze, think that they are such enlightened people. "Look at how virtuous we are!"

>Meanwhile they live in the poverty capitol of the US which has a 25% homelessness rate.

>Oligarchs play in/fund constant dribble of sub quality entertainment media which push their destructive views.

>Many of them play the hero in multi hundred million dollar LARPs.

>Watch themselves on the big screen with a hand in their pants.

>They can't realize that they are watching shit on a golden platter. Too busy orgasming every time their face comes on the screen.

>Every year, they all get together in a massive circle jerk so they can masturbate their self esteem on live TV.

>Are given a giant golden dildo to self pleasure with, but they can't keep the show to just their own pride. They have to get up there and virtue signal by shitting all over the best hope the lower and middle classes have had in two decades.

>Then they call everyone who doesn't agree with their degenerate beliefs "bigots" and "behind the times" and "deplorables".

>Somehow they don't understand that they are insulting the people who let them have the multi million dollar LARPs as action heros.

>Theatre earnings go down.

>Award shows lose ratings.

>TV and Movies start struggling to bring in as much of a profit.

>Oligarchs blame Russian bots.

FASCISTS WIN: Coulter Cancels Event After Berkeley Refuses To Stop Anti-Conservative Violence submitted by FreeSpeachRocks to news

Just think about what would happen if hood wearing KKK members were threatening a black speaker. The news media would literally piss itself with glee promoting how the evil, misogynistic, racist conservatives were oppressing dissenters. What happened is literally the same thing - mask wearing, black uniform ANTIFA members are threatening dissenters with violence. This insane extremism on the left is only getting worse.

Someone, please make a meme out of this where the guy's head is covered with the CNN logo, and the car has the words 'credibility' plastered all over it.

Which ones are you citing? Michal Behe (different author than one listed above) specifically focuses on Malaria - what science claims to be the fastest evolving organisms - in one of his books. Here is a quick summary of what he says.

Evolution can be boiled down to a function consisting of the variables "number of mutations" and "selection pressure", otherwise referred to mutations-selection events. Let's first look at the human race as a familiar example. Every generation, a child gains approximately 300 mutations that his parents did not have, and these mutations are the dice rolls which supposedly are able to generate novel traits when accumulated with mutations from the previous generations. However, it should be noted that the human genome is about 3 billion nucleotides long, meaning the odds are very small that mutations will happen within the same region of DNA. This is important.

As an example, in programming, there is what is known as scope - code within certain parts of the program can only interact with nearby code as a means of making the program modular and thus efficient. Different functions (blocks of code that do a specific thing) have different scopes, and one function shouldn't care that another function exists so long as it is not a helper function - thus 'mutations' to the source code even as close as a few bytes away might not even be seen to a function which is nearby because of the way the code is interpreted. DNA is exactly the same way, such that the nucleotides are roped off into discrete sections which perform their own unique tasks, and would require mutations to be within a very short distance of each other to be in the same scope and thus work together to create a new function.

Now, why is this important? Well, Michal Behe points out that Malaria has a mutation rate far faster than humanity, as well as a generation time of less than a day, and population sizes exceeding trillions of organisims, has given the disease over 110^20 unique mutations over the course of the last 40 years while being subject to far harsher natural selection than the human species. In comparison, humanity, which supposedly broke away from its progenitor ape species several million years ago has had only about 110^19 mutations as a whole due to its long generation times, low mutation rate, and small population sizes. Keep in mind that the currency of evolution isn't really time, but rather mutation-selection events, so it is valid to say that Malaria, as a species, has had about 10x the resources to evolve with than humanity, but we have only seen limited drug resistance develop in malaria while in humanity, we have seen a rise to sentience from a simple primate. Furthermore, genetic testing of Malaria has shown that these new 'traits' of resistance that it has gained have been single point mutations which have damaged pumps and openings in the cell wall of the organism which keeps the drug from entering. This is where scope comes into play - there has been one recorded instance of a two mutation adaptation where two nucleotide have mutated in conjunction to create a resistance, and this has only happened in the last few decades after extensive exposure to the drugs, i.e. heavy selection. This makes sense, since the statistical probability of these two mutations happening within the same scope is so vanishingly small. These are literally the ONLY changes which have been conferred to malaria by mutation and selection, over the past 40 years, and it is safe to say that few organism's genomes have been so heavily mapped and well understood. Today, despite the vast number of mutations and the much higher chance of finding beneficial traits to be added to the genome, malaria is identical to what it was 40 years ago.

Evolution fails to account for why there has been literally no change to the species of malaria as a whole despite having been given a human equivilant of 10x the evolutionary resources/time. To make another comparison, it would be the same as a primate species existing completely unchanged for over 10 million years, but even that is generous since humanity has experienced the vast majority of its mutations in the last 5000 years as population sizes have exploded.

I can only imagine the stormtrooper letting out a wilhelm scream as the foot came down atop it.

I keep my computer turned off to keep my power bill down as much as I can since it is a gaming rig and can have a surprising influence on my power bill, but the extra few dollars a month would be worth it to not have that happen again.
