Dogs are worse than SUVs for the environment. Where are we headed?

So I opened up Yahoo news to an article titled: Polluting pets: the devastating impact of man's best friend. Interesting that people first explained away global warming as a result of vehicles. Skip ahead a few studies, and it was because of cows, so naturally, we should cut our consumption of beef, and do away with cows. Now it's dogs?!?

I am starting to realize that although it may not have started as such, this type of study in conjunction with summits like the one this last week in Copenhagen, are leading up to a stunning result. The grand finale will be a startling revelation: Humans are bad for the environment!

In response to this, governments will start talking about how we can make the environment happy. End result will be that governments will enact "population control" legislation.

Do I really think this will happen? I give it a very slim chance. Do I think certain people want this to happen? Absolutely! People who are currently in high positions have wanted this for a long time. An example is John Holdren (right), the "Science Czar" for President Obama. This guy co-authored the book "Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment", in this book the three authors wrote "To provide a high quality of life for all, there must be fewer people." In the book they mention ways to achieve this quality. Those include: forced abortions, "compulsory sterilization", and the creation of a "planetary regime". Sounds like a high quality of life John. The sterilization bit would include spiking water and food with chemicals designed to make people sterile, or implanting sterilizing capsules in people when they reach puberty. Sounds amazing John. Where do we sign up John? You are an idiot John!

I would think that somebody who advocates for those types of ideas would be shoved off to the side, much like the so-called "Christians" who hold up signs that say "God hates [gays]" (gays is a toned down word from what they use). Every time I see people on the news with those signs I cringe, because that is not an accurate representation of Christianity. Yet, somehow, people don't shy away from John Holdren's views. Holdren spent the last thirteen years at Harvard teaching in the Kennedy school of government (hopefully named after Ted Kennedy, not John). Holdren is in the White House!! The religion of liberalism is insane, but I will give them credit for worshiping their god (mother earth) openly and unashamed, even to the point where they suggest human sacrifice, just for the sake of the quality of life of the rest of us of course...

Hillary Clinton imitating Steve Martin.

Hillary Clinton did a surprising Steve Martin impression when she introduced a video message from Barrack Obama in Berlin for the 20th anniversary of the fall of the wall. As she was introducing Barry, she said "I am deeply honored to introduce now a message from someone who represents the fall of different kinds of walls. Walls of discrimination...." and she goes on and on with all the walls that have fallen.
As she talks about all of the walls that he is responsible for knocking down, I can't help but think of the speech given by Lucky Day (Steve Martin) in the in-famous movie "The Three Amigos"...
here it is:

Where Are They Now?

Just when I thought that they might be an honest (although misguided) movement, I find out they were a bunch of fakes.

This was not a quick discovery.


I have been patiently waiting for the waves of anti-war people to protest the wars that are still going. B.H. Obama has more soldiers deployed now than G.W. (pronounced Gee-Dub) ever did. One would think that this would be a motive for anti-war protesters to grab their signs, and head out to their closest friendly, peaceful gathering.


So where are they?!? Where are you A.N.S.W.E.R.? Where are you Code Pink? Where are you UFPJ? Where are you moveon.org?


I think the answer is clear. The anti-war crazies (not to be confused with people who oppose the war(s) in a rational matter) irritated me to begin with, but for some reason, even though the war has not changed, they have changed their tune. Their disingenuous-ness irritates me above all.


Maybe they are just confused easily. After all, there is no longer a "global war on terrorism," now it is a "overseas contingency operation." So there you have it, the war is over simply by changing the words. Right? Guantanamo Bay is closed too just because the President said, right?


Brilliant. I guess that's where a "dime bag" a day for thirty years will get you.


Peace.

Where Are His Priorities?

Our President has been rushing to all kinds of new legislation. He rushed to the largest spending bill in our country's history (aka American Recovery and Reinvestment Act), he is now doing everything he can to rush toward a Washington D.C. health care takeover. One of the things that he loves to say is that the bills are not perfect, but the cost of taking no action is much greater.

Why does he not have the same attitude toward Afghanistan?? It has been two months since the request by the General that President Obama appointed, and still no action. He requested an additional number of troops, and we are sitting on it and considering the ramifications to his voter base, should he deploy more troops. He tries hard to disguise his delay as deliberation over strategy. Perhaps if we had a President with military experience, he would not be so indecisive. Maybe he should simply defer to the Generals who have a lifetime of experience. We already know what they have requested. No, instead he is going to focus his agenda, and full political might on a health care bill that is so urgent, and can't wait, yet does not take effect until 2013!

Mr. President, let's not leave our troops flapping out there. They are risking their lives daily, and need more help. You have the responsibility as Commander in Chief to make the decision. I understand you are scared, and inexperienced, and don't particularly care for the military, but it's your job to do what is right by them, and to win what you called "a war of necessity." Do it already!

COEXIST. Also my favorite bumper sticker.




Alright. So I know I just put up my 12 favorite bumper stickers, but as my good friend Chris pointed out, I left out this gem. Coexist is a bumper sticker that I have talked back to more than probably any other one...except maybe "9/11 was an inside job", but I can't even take that one as a serious belief.

Now back to COEXIST. Here is my main beef with this sticker: the "oexist" are largely non-violent. As we look at the violence in the world today, just about all of it comes from the "C" (aka Islam)... I don't know who came up with it's nickname, but the so-called "religion of peace" was founded on forced conversions, and blood. Mohammad was not peaceful, so why should his followers be? The people who have these bumper stickers are "coincidentally" also the people who respond to Islamic violence by saying "what have we done to make them so angry?"


This bumper sticker is like a parent who watches one child repeatedly punch another child in the face, and then asks both of them: "can't you get along?" Are you serious?


As I was doing my research into the variations of this bumper sticker, I ran into this one. It is a kind of humorous view of what I have been writing.



I also ran into this one. I was apprehensive about putting it on here, but figured I would. I think it's important to call out my own side when they do things like this. In my mind this one below is a failed attempt at humor. The attempt for humor is that communists and nazis are well known for killing dissenters. It is a failed attempt because although I consider communism a conclusion of atheistic (religious) thought, I hate responding to idiocy with nazi or communist symbols. It's overused. The symbols kind of make me sick to look at. Knowing that the two symbols represent so many dead. If I low ball the numbers, between just Mao Tse Tung and Joey Stalin they killed 70 million people. When I think Nazi, I think Hitler, without Hitler there would have not been a WWII, so I attribute all WWII deaths to Adolf Hitler: somewhere between 60-75 million people. So for the reason that we are talking about the deaths of 130 million people at a minimum, you will excuse me if I don't find this sticker very funny.

Twelve of my favorite bumper stickers.

I once heard that bumper stickers are terrible "because they are a one way conversation"... I was driving up to Sacramento on Sunday and spent probably ten miles behind a vehicle which repeated the same sentence to me over and over again. I have heard this conversation before, but it really bothered me more and more the more I read it. Here it is:

The first issue is: who will fight our wars? Oh, thats right, the whole world would live in peace... The second issue is: what can you possibly say to have "free" college make sense. How does it make sense for those who don't go to college to flip the bill for those who do?
The third issue is: do soldiers get a say in it? they enlist voluntarily. they know they are signing up for potentially going to war, they aren't tricked into thinking it's freshman orientation at community college. Don't insult the soldiers.
In honor of that bumper sticker, I have dug up a few more that I really dislike. We'll start with the anti-war:






All of those bumper stickers show a brilliant thought process.


Now some other bumper stickers that are pretty ridiculous:

- more soldiers deployed now than at any time under George W. Bush...as for cutting veterans' benefits, that was President Obama's first proposed cut. So...

- great! i often find myself wondering: "what would an actor do?" (WWAAD)
- seriously, why don't they just replace the "Give Hope a Chance" with "Kumbaya - Obama '08"
- borrow + spend = both parties!!

- hello, you are insensitive and enjoy making people mad.

- why is your boyfriend their choice? your parent or sibling? they should just take their noses out of your family's business and let you kill who you want.
- this may be my absolute favorite. i don't think Jesus preached big government on earth.... I could be wrong, i havent read the gospel of Thomas yet...

Incredible DNC Statement!

I am so sorry I didn't bring this to my blog earlier! I don't frequent POLITICO's site, but this is a gem! This is a statement released on October 9th made by the DNC's communications director. First I'll give you the statement, then a couple quick observations:



"The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists - the Taliban and Hamas this morning - in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize," DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse told POLITICO. "Republicans cheered when America failed to land the Olympics and now they are criticizing the President of the United States for receiving the Nobel Peace prize - an award he did not seek but that is nonetheless an honor in which every American can take great pride - unless of course you are the Republican Party.

"The 2009 version of the Republican Party has no boundaries, has no shame and has proved that they will put politics above patriotism at every turn. It's no wonder only 20 percent of Americans admit to being Republicans anymore - it's an embarrassing label to claim," Woodhouse said.



Observations:

1. This may be the first time a Democratic official has admitted that the Taliban and Hamas are terrorists, usually they are only extremists. Great breakthrough!

2. Those of us who find this award unmerited have never blamed the President for receiving it. Rather the committee for granting it, oh and whoever submitted his name for consideration.

3. Democrats disagreed with the wars, so did the terrorists. Democrats criticize our soldiers more than the terrorists' ideology, so do terrorists. Democrats wanted Barrack Obama to win in the presidential election....wait for it....and so did terrorists.

4. Terrorists would have liked the Olympics to be in Chicago. That would have provided a huge target for them, and one which would have been extremely hard to defend entirely.

5. Although only 20% of people identify themselves as Republicans, it turns out Republicans are polling ahead in just about every senate seat race for 2010. Something doesn't add up.

6. He says this is an award for which "every American can take great pride"...maybe i was raised wrong, but I thought I was supposed to take pride in things like "hard work" and "accomplishments", not winning awards that frankly were not earned.
