“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.”

Carbon Belch Day!

Now here's a movement I can get behind....

Conservative grassroots group Grassfire.org wants people to waste as much energy as possible on June 12 by "hosting a barbecue, going for a drive, watching television, leaving a few lights on, or even smoking a few cigars."
The point: the group wants to "help Americans break free from the 'carbon footprint guilt' being imposed by Climate Alarmists."


I've been thinking of stocking up on incandescent bulbs before they're outlawed by wild-eyed, environmental zealots in Congress. I think on June 12, I'll drive to Home Depot, buy a bunch of bulbs, then idle my SUV as long as possible in a fast-food drive-thru, maybe turn my AC down real low and build the last fire of the season, throw some plastic containers in the regular trash bin, mow my grass whether it needs it or not, and finish off the day with a little exercise so I exhale lots of polluting CO2.

I encourage you to find ways to poke your finger in the eye of nutty envirnomentalists all day on June 12. Don't let them make you feel guilty any longer, simply for enjoying living your life in the wealthiest nation on Earth.

Here is a better solution. Stop recycling all together. Until the government makes it illegal to throw stuff away, throw it away. Buy new things. Right now, our economy is in worse shape than our environment. We need to be spending money, not recycling it.
