This is a very interesting way to look at debating the left. Just rephrase their nonsense and it will likely shut them the hell up.

Rebooting the Debate
The defining moment, and how to own it.
By Michael D. Harbison

A former college roommate once gave me a very succinct piece of wisdom, passed on from his father, when he viewed me engaging in an ideological debate. The advice? “Never argue with a pig. It will waste your time, and it will just annoy the pig.”

I am now observing how conservatives willingly cede the defining moments of a debate by accepting, and even parroting, the terminology of the Left. As long as we continue to let the left frame the argument, the picture we attempt to paint will not matter. When the debate is defined by their vernacular (global warming, gun control, health care, and all the rest), we sustain an uphill battle in our quest to have our views understood. Our words should define our beliefs inasmuch as the Liberal terminology defines the beliefs of the Left.

Let’s not forget the climategate action. The UN is digging in. I expected that. It threatens their global dominance mantra. How better to control the world than through control of climate regulation worldwide?

Climate-cult con is hard to ‘bear’

When did global warming turn into a forced religion?

My daughter came home from school recently with a spring in her step and a song on her lips. With no foreshadowing — or time to call an exorcist — out came this chilling refrain:

” . . . You can hear the warning — GLOBAL WARMING . . . ”

The Ghost of Lysenko

The imaginary science of manmade global warning can now be entered into the infamous history of politicized science.

Four officers killed by a low life piece of shit. He was pardoned by Mike Huckabee 10 years ago. Just in case you were wondering, Huckabee is a RINO.

But, the true issue here is that a known felon killed four police officers in a cold blooded ambush. Completely unprovoked.

My prayers for their families; may God have mercy on their souls and give peace to their families and strength in this hour of mourning.

City of Lakewood Identifies Slain Police Officers

Lakewood Police Chief Bret Farrar publicly identified the four slain police officers after an extensive and very difficult notification process. “All four of our slain officers had been with this department since it started five years ago. Sergeant Mark Renninger and Officers Ronald Owens, Tina Griswold, and Greg Richards were police veterans when they started and all have been outstanding professionals. This is a very difficult time for our families and our officers. The families will have many challenges ahead of them and we ask that their privacy be respected. Please keep our families and Lakewood Police in your prayers.”

Cops: Suspect in Officer Executions May Be Dead

SEATTLE —  A suspect in the slaying of four police officers who were gunned down in a suburban coffee shop was surrounded by police at a Seattle house early Monday, wounded and possibly dead, police said.

Negotiators were trying to communicate with Maurice Clemmons, 37, using loudspeakers, explosions and even a robot to try to prod him from hiding. At one point, gunshots rang through the neighborhood, about 30 miles from the original crime scene.

“We have determined that in fact he has been shot,” said Ed Troyer, a spokesman for the Pierce County Sheriff. “He may be deceased from his gunshot wound.

Clemmons, who has a long criminal history — including a long prison sentence commuted by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee nearly a decade ago — became the prime target Sunday in the search for the killer of Lakewood police Sgt. Mark Renninger, 39, and Officers Ronald Owens, 37, Tina Griswold, 40, and Greg Richards, 42.
