“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Socialist Party presidential candidate Norman Thomas

How embarassing...

With the curious absence of actual evidence of man-made global warming threatening the whole man-is-the-scourge-of-the-Earth paradigm reflexively embraced by liberals, "news" organizations have resorted to soliciting anecdotal tid-bits from the general public that support their idiotic global-warming beliefs, apparently with the intent of reporting it as factual evidence...

Witnessing the impact of global warming in your life?
ABC News wants to hear from you. We're currently producing a report on the increasing changes in our physical environment, and are looking for interesting examples of people coping with the differences in their daily lives. Has your life been directly affected by global warming?
We want to hear and see your stories. Have you noticed changes in your own backyard or hometown? The differences can be large or small — altered blooming schedules, unusual animals that have arrived in your community, higher water levels encroaching on your property.

The liberal main-stream-media, desperately clinging to Al Gore's stupid notion that global warming is the gravest threat to man...ever, can't find any reliable science to support it. So rather then admit that the jury is still out on the cause(s) of global warming, they are recruiting members of the general public to find evidence of man-made global warming.

Who do they think will respond but nutty Gaia-worshiping, enviro-druids who can find evindence of global warming in their refrigerators? Of course they can produce a tale of fewer spotted newts living in the mud-puddle (sorry, protected wetland) in their backyards.

Here's what's going on...as we always see with liberals when they want to create hysteria and sympathy over one of their nutty causes...they attempt to put a pitiful, weeping victim's face on the imagined impending tragedy so that people will empathise and not oppose the legislation, ostensibly designed to prevent another one.

They used Cindy Sheehan and the Jersey Girls as the sobbing, hysterical faces of the argument to pull out of Iraq. They use the most pitiful, unmarried mother of 7 they could find as the face of the argument for universal access to day-care and raising the minimum wage. They used Max Cleland (wheelchair-bound amputee) as the sympathetic face of the argument against the war in Iraq. They used Sarah Brady as the weeping face of the argument in favor of sweeping, federal gun-control legislation. The list goes on and on because it is plan A in the liberal/Democratic Handbook-for-Deceiving-the-American-People: Putting a tragic figure on the face of all political arguments makes Americans feel guilty about opposing the argument. Acquiring video of sobbing widows, orphaned, shoeless children, greiving loved-ones, or resolute survivors of whatever the tragedy, no matter how tangential to the politics, is always a plus when trying to play on the sympathies of Americans in order to achieve a political goal.

The funny thing is ABC isn't even being sly about their deceit. They're very publically soliciting unscientific, amateur accounts of evidence of a highly scientific phenomenon...a phenomenon so scientifically difficult to grasp, that even highly trained scientists don't understand, much less agree on, it's causes.

You watch, ABC will air a "News Special" next month about global warming, featuring at least one crying, sympathetic female. (crying men don't appeal to the liberal's target demographic apparently, because you never see that, unless that is, the male happens to be a Democrat who got caught being gay or being under the influence while holding public office, then public male-sobbing can be beneficial to the advancment of gay-rights or treatment-rather-than-punishment-for-drug-use legislation).

Not once do you hear about the natural temperature cycles through which the Earth moves. I've heard that we are at the warmest the Earth has been in 400 years, the warmest in 1000 years, the warmest in millenia. How do they know that? And more importantly, does the fact that the Earth was this warm 400 years ago not make the argument that we are simply in a warming cycle? There is ample proof of a 200 year long mini-ice age that occurred in the 1400's-1600's. How does that fit into Al Gore's hysterics today? The answer is...it doesn't...Al Gore is a raving lunatic desperate for relevance. And ABC is encouraging him with this Jerry Springer-style solicitation for global warming horror stories.
