The body language of the others in the picture certainly don't seem friendly towards her.

You can tell how someone feels about someone else from a staged photo.

Surprising that they didn't jump at the chance to include a token minority. Everyone knows that the climatista movement is overwhelmingly white and middle to upper class.

Greta is such a sourpuss. While her parents putting every thought in her head and every word in her mouth they should have taught her to smile.

You don't have to go to their Twitter page or anything, just click on the link to the article that you didn't read. They're embedded in it.

Anyone who doesn't think it's cool that we just watched an entire continent burn to the ground who has ever travelled anywhere by the only means available is a hypocrite.

The wealthy need to travel on private jets and own multiple giant homes around the world for reasons. The rest of you can stay at home in your government approved one bedroom tenement apartment with three other families. Your children, if you're approved for breeding, will thank you.

Yes

And you're all about you and me and everyone you know paying for it,,,,

In most cases.

It's only when you don't agree with the person's politics that you're not ok with personally funding it.

Why is that??

Ever since Stalin villainized the Kulaks, starving them and sending them to gulags, leftists have been trying to gain power by limiting the economic activity of the middle class. Marxist Greens think they have a winner with the "Climate Change".

For the very same reason you and your ilk allow politics to be the sole determiner of things. Duh.

Since 1975, practically all the gains in household income have gone to the top 20% of households.

So I asked why you're cool financing the lifestyles of the rich and famous so long as you agree with their politics.

You answered:

"Those god damned leftists made me do it!"

"Prince Charles flew 16,000 miles in just 11 days"

Is this headline from 1935?
Nothing impressive about flying an average of 1500 miles a day.
Maybe if you've never flown you don't know how it works?
Hint: Top tier in most frequent flier programs is million mile status.

#17 was in response to #14.

I don't expect an answer.

You can just say something like:

Yeah, my own shht stinks.

I do not support persons using the government to gain wealth, not by rent seeking or cronyism. I don't see how I directly or indirectly support Prince Charles's lifestyle.

Visitor from Another Dimension reminds me of a guy recently lamenting how great the 1950's were and how liberals had screwed the country up ever since.

Reminding him that FDR had been elected 3 times just prior to that age didn't dent his obliviousness.

Doesn't support Trump's cronyism and breaking the emoluments clause?

Cool.

I'm not going to search your posts.

Simply point me to the ones where you are typing randomly capitalized letters and wwwaaayyyy too many exclamation points about this:

Wait....

You mean to tell me you only disagree with such shht when the leech who pulls it doesn't agree with you politically???

Well I'll be fccked.

It's almost like I was describing you, personally, when I typed that post that you vehemently disagreed with...
