When people see others walking down a railroad track with an oncoming train ahead, I think will will try whatever they can to get people to stop ignoring the danger.

The first time around their lies did not work. So they rename their lies and try again. Typical democrat tactic. Just like if they lose on an issue, they rebrand it again and again in the hope that they can fool enough people to be what they want.

Duh.

First it was warming..til it started to cool off.
Then it was cooling..til they discovered it wasn't really all that cold

Now it's "disruption"..guess they just needed an all inclusive word so that whatever way the temps swing they can use that on us.

Carbon credits anyone ??

And Frank Luntz doesn't do that for the Republican party? "Death Tax"? Seriously, Republicans do this just as much, and in my opinion maybe more, as the Democrats.

Yes, it's okay. Politics has a lot to do with the art of persuasion. I don't see how you can stop a political party from communicating a certain way or expressing ideas in ways that are advantageous to their political future.

From Frank Luntz, the Republican guru of communication:
