“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.”

Human Achievement Hour

You've probably heard by now that the stupid, yearly practice of pretending that we are third-world peasants by turning our lights off for an hour is supposed to happen today....it's Earth Hour Day Appreciation Time or something. The idea is that by by bruising your shins and stumping your toes on the furniture for an hour tonight, somehow you demonstrate acknowledgement of the imaginary hobgobblin known as global warming.

Here's a better idea for all TRR readers around the world. Between 8:30 and 9:30 local time, turn all your lights on to show appreciation for mens' conquest of and dominion over the elements, including the darkness. Simply by doing all the things you normally do at night, you are by default thumbing your nose at the morons who're sitting in darkness. If you have a smelly-hippie environmentalist for a neighbor who's house is dark, call him up and tell him to look across the street and witness your performative testament to human achievement.
Then, to really make him feel stupid, ask him to look up a phone number for you.

If it's 8:30-9:30 where they live, these people must be free-market, capitalist conservatives.
