This world is more than a little upside-down. If you get your information from a source other than the evening news or the newspaper, you see evidence that the inmates not only run the asylum, but they’re spreading their disease to the rest of the world.
First, the news that the United Nations is preparing to debate a Bolivian proposal that “Mother Earth” has rights, and that “the central enemy of Mother Earth is capitalism.” (See this story for more.) Are you freakin’ kidding me? The planet has rights? This is another attempt by socialists to simply rid the earth of the human race, and to those who say humans should get out of the way of the planet, I say, “you first.” If you truly believe that the human race should be eradicated, then by all means begin the process on my behalf. Trust me, no one will mourn your passing. Trying to ascribe “human” rights to a planet is abjectly insane.
Second, the President’s comment not too long ago that, for those who are upset about the price of gasoline, purchasing an electric car might be an option. This was, as many commentators have stated, his “Let them eat cake” moment. The unmitigated gall of this man, who not only is disconnected from reality but is truly disdainful of most Americans, is beyond belief. To tell someone they should abandon their “gas guzzler” (and truly, what vehicles get 8 miles per gallon these days, as he stated? What planet is he from, really?) and go buy an electric car (surely the Chevy Volt, the $47 thousand dollar albatross around GM’s neck). Really? I mean, really? If you don’t have the money to fill your current tank, how are you gonna afford half a mortgage to buy a new car?!? I am astounded at the man’s – well, unmitigated gall is the best phrase I can think of.
Third, staying with gas prices, instead of increasing our domestic oil production in an attempt to increase crude supplies and lower prices, Obama and his Department of Justice will – investigate non-existent charges of gouging? Seriously? I mean, are you freakin’ kidding? Granted, gas stations do this on occasion, but this does nothing but distract from the real issue, which is that he caused this problem in the first place by carrying out his illegal moratorium on new drilling permits. Un-freakin’-believable.
Fourth, I was reading on NewsBusters an article regarding Trig Palin, Sarah Palin’s son with Down’s Syndrome. Apparently, there are those on the lunatic left who believe that Trig is actually Bristol Palin’s son, a theory that has been thoroughly debunked eight ways from Sunday – but that doesn’t stop the left, because facts don’t get in the way of a good story. A left-wing website, Wonkette, recently published a blog post on Trig’s birthday that was in execrable taste, so much so that several advertisers decided to pull their advertising from the site. Only after this happened did the publisher of the site offer an “apology” for the “comedic timing” of the piece. Really? Comedy? Attacking a defenseless child because you’re suffering from Palin Derangement Syndrome? That’s “comedy?” No, that’s reprehensible, it’s disgusting, it’s sub-human, and it’s another example of how the left is well and truly unhinged.
I cannot imagine how someone cannot see what is happening today and see it as anything but incredibly abnormal, and I’m talking abnormal on a Biblical scale. People used to say, “This couldn’t happen here.” To them I say, WAKE UP! It is happening here, and if people would get their heads out of their evening news and newspaper cocoons, they’d see it for themselves. I truly fear for this nation, and for the human race in general, because absent the return of Christ or something similarly earth-shattering, we’re about to self-immolate.
Wouldn’t that make the Bolivians happy?
