    Greta Thunberg Is Time's Person Of The Year for 2019

    And, of course, tRump, apparently angry and jealous of this goes to mocking the 16-year-old. If his supporters can't see the immaturity of this in tRump, there's nothing that can open their eyes. Donald's nimrod son Donald jr also took to getting in on it making it a gangbang, which is not shocking coming from these two.

    These guys all have their eyes closed.

    When christianity took over in europe they called it the dark ages. I used to find that genre of american sci fi where religous extremism takes hold and freedom goes out the window a bit hard to see as credible I still do really but sometimes I wonder.

    I guess when one believes in a myth that portrays a God who creates evil people for the sole purpose of fulfilling His will there can be no such thing as a contradiction or free will for that matter.

    I'm not certain which one the religious rights projects on Trump. Is it David or Saul? Or is it another character?

    Not shocked much less surprised Time's selection. It is really great putting a 16-year-old child and her silly diatribe as their own political statement of the year.

    Did you think anything similar when Trump was their choice?

    A 16 year old is hardly a child these days.
    And I see nothing silly about being concerned that few, if any of the "Leaders" of today are yet doing anything useful about the the looming climate issues.

    Even the Petroleum companies have recognized that there will be a significant effect from the exploitation of fossil fuels, and are making adjustments to their long range plans, while the collective governments simple offer lip service and diddle their fiddles.

    I wonder whether I could persuade you to quote anything she's said in public which qualifies as "silly", I'm interested to know what might fit this setting. Any quote, anywhere, any topic, so long as it's actually her words and you put them in quote marks. If you can choose something relevant to her public message then that would be a bonus but I don't insist.

    And I don't believe Time has ever actually endorsed the position of their "Person of the Year". Their own claim is just that the person they choose has become wildly and surprisingly influential in the previous twelve months. Hitler, Bono, Wallis Simpson, Stalin twice, Krushchev, the Ayatollah, Giuliani - where do you get "their own political statement" out of that selection exactly? You honestly think any of those deep thinkers meshed with Time's editorial perspective?
