Sad thing is, those who voted 'yes' spend tax payers' money, probably don't pay property and school taxes, get their gasoline in W. Quincy, shop in Hannibal, or will die before the bills are ever paid off. Wonder how many of Qcy Comp and Titan employees will be moving away and how many of them voted yes for this project ??

Strawman: It's Just a Climate Change World.....

1 year, 2 months ago by Strawman

I’m feeling so much better knowing that 28 of this nation’s senators spent the night together hashing and re-hashing the topic of climate change.  The same collection “believers”, the same ones who have helped spend this country into third world status, the same ones who are always first to the mic to call attention to this short coming and that were in all their glory Monday night.  And what a line up!!!

Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Mark Udall, Richard Blumenthal, Chris Murphy, Bill Nelson, Dick Durbin, Elizabeth Warren, Al Franken and Charles Schumer were the headliners.  Those on the B-list included Harry Reid and Obama-wanna-be Cory Booker.   And what fun they did have!!!

According to this collection super brains—and I’m paraphrasing here---most anything that goes wrong in this world is directly attributable to climate change.  For instance:

  1. The Cubs. Has there been a longer drought than has been foisted on those from the North Side?  Gotta be Global Warming.

  2. Russia’s takeover of Crimea and Ukraine.  There has to be a shortage of clean, breathable air in that part of the world. Why else would Putin ignore veiled threats by John Kerry and Obama and do something so dangerous?

  3. The demise of CNN. Seems like pandering to those on the left while creating mass volumes of hot air and co2 have dealt the Clinton News Network a death blow.  Climate change claims yet another victim!!!

And while the members of the non-flat earth society were all toasty and warm last night, there was one thing that went un-noticed by the press; everyone in that group of 28 is a hypocrite.  Talking about climate change and demonstrating that you actually intend on doing something about it are 2 entirely different things.

Chances are, as the nations’ capitol welcomed another sunrise, every senator and every staff member made their way home thanks to something called an internal combustion engine.  They made their way down the street in a vehicle propelled by unleaded gasoline.  That same vehicle rolled quietly on tires—another product made possible by petroleum and electricity.  And of course, upon their arrival at home, they turned on lights—lights enabled by, perhaps, a coal fired electric plant.

Chances are this fine collection of public servants carve out a bigger carbon footprint in one year than you or I do in a decade.  They fly more, move from here to there in bigger vehicles, and are accompanied by a security detail, which, again, uses fuel.  But they’re royalty….remember?

I’ll take this climate change nonsense a little more seriously when I see our president park the plane, confine his travels to something closer to home, take a “staycation” instead of a vacation and act like he’s interested in actually conserving some energy.

But you and I both know the chances of that happening are about as good Susan Rice telling the truth and Lois Lerner not pleading the fifth.  Or have I been overcome by fumes???
