“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.”

Rules for thee, but not for me

I know you people get tired of my harping on brain-dead environmentalists all the time, but as long as their hypocricy continues unaddressed by the media, somebody has to keep pointing it out...

The UN secretary-general today called on world leaders for immediate action on climate change - before flying thousands of miles to the US for a music concert and then leaving in the interval to jet to Europe.

Ban Ki-moon has been slammed for planning a round-the-world trip that will generate thousands of tonnes of carbon emissions just days after he leaves the UN meeting in Bali.

The South Korean has organised a post-conference trip, starting on Sunday, that will see him fly to attend the concert in New York, adding more than 4,300 miles to his itinerary. When he leaves the island after the summit Mr Ban will fly to East Timor, and then to Japan where he will briefly stop before catching another flight to the US.

The flight from Tokyo to New York takes him the wrong way around the world. The UN is expected to announce plans to offset the emissions generated by all agencies involved in the Bali conference by contributing to various environmentally friendly projects.

This is liberalism in a nutshell. The stupid life-altering carbon rules are for us little people who're too stupid to live our own lives as we choose. The elitists don't have to follow the rules because they are the enlightened class.

I realize it's early, but I'm going to announce my New Year's resolution right now....so I can get a jump start on fulfilling it.

In 2008 I will create the largest carbon footprint that I humanly can...
-I will turn the AC on and have fires in the fireplace on warm days
-I will mow my lawn even when it doesn't need it
-I will take unnecessary trips in my SUV to the Piggly Wiggly
-I will sometimes not recycle aluminum and plastic containers
-I will eat more meat since cows leave the biggest carbon footprint of all domesticated animals
-I will run when I can walk, drive when I can bike, and fly when I can drive
-I will eat more beans since methane is an extremely potent greenhouse gas(apologies to my wife)

Those are just a few of the things that I pledge to do to contribute to the imaginary menace of global warming. I encourage you to do the same.

OK...from someone who knows the truth. Have no fear. Ed doesn't necessarily mow the lawn when it needs it so I wouldn't worry too much about him mowing it when it doesn't; we do recylcle-maybe not as much as we should but we do; we car pool to work together-that's probably more about the price of gas and oh, yeah, togetherness. Either way we do our part. But most importantly, do NOT worry about the methane production. Ed blows enough hot air as it is...I definitely do not allow the excessive consumption of beans by this man....Love you honey!!
