The Environmentalists Are Killing People

Don't worry, though.  The ozone layer is much the better for it.

Besides, what's a little mercury poisoning, exploding light bulbs, and house fires ... lots of house fires ... when the greater good is taken into consideration?

See "The CFL Fraud."

And be very, very afraid to turn on your lights.

Look at it this way: It should be of some consolation knowing that the horrific deaths your loved ones will experience are offset by the reduction in atmospheric greenhouse gases by 0.00004° C.

Leave It To Krauthammer

This is one of those "why didn't I think of that?" things:


If you're one of those who has "Trump fever," please, take a pill. Get some bed-rest.

You'll get past it.

What Would We Do Without Time Magazine?

Guess what.  We're all going to die!  From refrigerators!

How the Ice in Your Drink is Imperiling the Planet
By Jeffrey Kluger, TIME

Want to save the Earth? Easy, just buy a couple of ice trays. To the long list of human inventions that are wrecking global climate—the internal combustion engine, the industrial era factory—add the automatic ice maker.

Climate modelers have long known that households are far bigger contributors to global warming than most laypeople realize. For all the blame tailpipe emissions take for escalating temperatures, homes and office buildings are actually the single largest contributor to greenhouse gasses. One key reason is the ...  [blah blah blah] [link]
It's worth noting (and I'm thinking it will come as a startling revelation to this ... environmentalist) that those "climate modelers" have gained a reputation over time as being about as bad at guessing future activities as Madame Maude's Tea Leaf Reading Emporium.  They have been notoriously - and consistently - wrong with their "models" since they began modeling decades ago.

But beyond that, wasn't it just yesterday - or so - that the global warmists at TIME were shedding tears of fret over global cooling?

From its April, 1977 issue:


See the subheader.  One wonders if one of those "51 things you can do to make a difference" in the war on global cooling was to STOP BUYING REFRIGERATORS!

We can't win.

You'll Know The GOP Is Serious ...

... when it kills this worthless, misguided, wasteful program:

Americorps.

You may remember it.  It's that Bill Clinton wundernotion that has the federal government paying volunteers (that's right, we pay volunteers) (are GM assembly line workers "volunteers?  Just asking.) to do meaningless tasks that no one not getting paid would ever have an interest in doing.  It's a complete waste of taxpayer dollars.

So far, though, the Republican leadership in the House has given the axing of this classic boondoggle but lip service.

As the federal deficit continues to mount.

As a growing number of the American people lose all faith in their government to turn itself around before it's too late.

Americorps being only one of thousands of make-work programs funded by the federal government that - in the end - serve no real purpose and have no impact on our daily lives.

Where does this end?

Will Rogers tried reminding us that it could always be worse:

"Be thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for."

He had a point.

Yet, Americorps "volunteers"will be spreading out across the land this morning, knocking on doors, seeking and signing up new federal welfare (i.e.: food stamps) recipients.


We've reached that point.  Government workfare clients growing the already colossal government welfare roles.


I don't know.  Can it get any worse than that?


There was a day when government was in place to facilitate the nurturing of a robust U.S. economy.  Now its main function is to streamline the flow of the bread line.

And populating that bread line?  Americorps workers.


The world has turned upside down.
