Bubble failure

Last night I chatted with a guy who thinks the fires are a result of (checks notes) the Socialist California state government intentionally hobbling PG&E in order to discredit Capitalism.

These people vote. In California!

(He also said: You seem very smart, Mr. Dinosaur, and I don't say that often." I said, "I'll bet you don't! When's the last time you complimented a dinosaur?")

Previously, previously.

    You see, if PG&E was allowed to use wood for power then it would cut down all the trees and burn them. Then there wouldn’t be forests for those uncontrolled forest fires, solving the problem and at the same time producing cheap electricity for our glorious capitalist overlords.

    Well it seems to be working, which would imply that the socialist government of California is competent, so refutation by contradiction I guess.

    Always amusing to see conspiracy theorists pat themselves on the back for being so smart to construct such an elaborate explanation. So complex that only “smart” people can understand.

    That’s a nice tidy tautology that allows you to discredit anyone who disagrees cuz they’re not smart enough to see the light ya know.

    Did you ask him about the motivations of the 2017 Las Vegas shooter? Heard it was a Democrat conspiracy to influence Washington to enact gun control laws.

    Those folks could use a nice shave from Occam’s razor. But they’re more likely to just blow a bigger smoke screen instead.

    The next logical step is to blame the actions of a private company on the governor, recall him, and replace him with a Hollywood celebrity.
