Stupid liberals!

February 11, 2007

Hi Brit,

I was reading this, Hybrid-Only Car Service Launches in San Francisco, and it hit me as to just how stupid liberals are, as a general rule.  The key point in this is that, according to the story, the idea is to make rich people flying into Nanny Pelosi’s home town feel better by taking “green” transportation around town, after dumping untold tons of greenhouse gas into the atmosphere while flying in a fuel waisting jet.  Then I read the details, and was shocked.  Keep in mind that the article is tainted with the usual liberal bias, even though it does throw in a tiny hit about the jet travel thing, but it also includes, “with a fleet of leather-seated Priuses.”  I’m sure that the reporter, not knowing squat about Global Warming, didn’t think twice about this.  However, the secondary part of the Climate Change Conspiracy, the one that really gets the radical liberals frothing at the mouth over its potential for bringing about social change, is the implication of cow farts in heating up the globe.  That would, of course, be the methane content in the massive flatulence produced by our bovine food supply, which is an excuse for left wing groups to insist everyone turn vegetarian.  Thus the paradoxical nature of a “green” car with leather seats.  Oh, well, I am assuming that the leather was produced from cow hide and not Jews, but that is most likely a safe assumption.

How long can you hold your breath?

February 9, 2007

Hi Brit,

I just read this, Congress eyes legislation to fight climate change, and immediately asked myself “how long can I hold my breath?”  After all, each of us expel the Evil Greenhouse Gas CO2 with each breath, and, now that Nanny Pelosi has the issue firmly clinched in her dentures, I expect that soon we will be faced with a Breath Tax, to encourage us to slow down our individual contributions to Global Warming.  By my quick, and not necessarily totally accurate, calculations, we in the US can offset her jet set life style if we each take 30 fewer breaths per day.  Of course, this increased interest in decreasing our breath rates will have at least one benefit, that being, getting some of the joggers off the road.

Although, considering that:

The White House said Snow was referring to figures from the International Energy Agency that from 2000 to 2004, U.S. carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel combustion grew by 1.7 percent, while in the European Union such emissions grew by 5 percent.  From: U.S. cuts emissions better than Europe: White House.

It would seem obvious to any rational person, thus excluding most Democrats I admit, that we are on the correct path to achieve the liberal agenda of reducing CO2 emissions without further Government meddling.  With liberals in control, of course, they will ignore the facts, raise taxes and piddle around in our lives until they manage to, not only, increase Greenhouse Gas Emissions, but, also, screw up our economy.  Typical.

Queen Pelosi?

February 2, 2007

Hi Brit,

I knew when the election results came in last year the Pelosi would be a constant source of inspiration.  I didn’t think it would be this good though, Speaker pursues military flights.  The key to this story is not that Queen Pelosi wants free rides in military planes, being secure and staying in contact with Washington is part of her job as Speaker.  However, she is also demanding, “regular military flights not only for herself and her staff, but also for relatives and for other members of the California delegation.”  Sorry, Nanny Pelosi.  You’re are Speaker of the House, not royalty.  Family and friends have to fly commercial.  That’s the price you pay for the new ethics rules.  Besides, you shouldn’t be flying anyway.  Don’t you believe in Global Warming?  Aren’t you concerned about the size of your carbon footprint?  Oh, I forgot.  All that stuff only applies to us peasants.

Pelosi’s home town drama.

February 1, 2007

Hi Brit,

This goes a ways toward explaining why Nanny Pelosi is, let us say, a bit confused about how much Government people really need, AIDE QUITS AS NEWSOM’S AFFAIR WITH HIS WIFE IS REVEALED.  The steamy details boil down to, the Mayor of San Francisco at one time was sleeping with his secretary who was the wife of his campaign manager, and all was fine until the wife in question confessed to her husband during a rehab program for substance abuse, after which the aide told the Mayor off then quit.  Apparently, none of the governed are upset, with the exception of the guy who quit, and the Mayor is sad that the guy who’s wife he banged won’t stay on the job.  Environment, it would seem, does play a significant role in how people turn out.

Democrats causing Climate Change for political gain!

January 26, 2007

Hi Brit,

Well, it does seem as if Nanny Pelosi, the Speaker Lady and big gun against Global Warming and Climate Change (if it’ll get her a vote or two,) is another liberal who’s ideology only applies to the common people.  She and a horde of Big Name liberal politicians are off on a quick trip to Iraq to check things out for themselves, Pelosi to meet with al-Maliki in quick visit to Iraq.  Of course, they’re flying, pumping tons and tons of CO2 into the air, not to mention burning untold thousands of tax payer dollars, just to have a photo-op and make a political point.  Typical liberal elitists.  What do you want to bet that they step off the jet right into a convoy of SUVs?

Sick in San Francisco

January 25, 2007

Hi Brit,

It looks like San Francisco didn’t send all its liberals to Washington.  Apparently they kept enough to pass a new law, Paid Sick and Take-Care-of-Your-Neighbor Days to Be Mandatory in San Francisco.  How appropriate that Nanny Pelosi’s home town is taking a giant step forward in the race to achieve a total socialist Nanny State.  I’m surprised that they didn’t go ahead and require the employer to deliver a bowl of chicken soup and a bottle of aspirin the the “sick” employee, on foot, to reduce carbon emissions.  Ah, how I long for the days when the mountain range and desert that perpetrates me from the liberal bastion that is California offered some protection from their insanity.
