A close runner up to “the finest example of fatuous, preening, liberal self-righteousness”
Thanks to reader Matt, who took this photo in the rain in Denver near the Cheesman Park neighborhood just east of Downtown, and writes:
Doesn’t the government …already force me to? But alas, the fruits of my labor must be given so that others may simply live.
And of course, a Prius is the epitome of simple living, with its high price tag and increased insurance costs.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
I was just wondering – if (when) Romney loses in November, will that make Sarah Palin the unofficial front runner for 2016?
“Live simply so that others may live”
Except the unborn, of course. Well, liberals have their own little justifications for their weird beliefs. Anybody ever notice how liberals are all caught up in saving animals rather than humans. And even that is a false meme.
An F 150 is pretty simple too. Simply great!
Here is my advice to GOP candidates: http://evilbloggerlady.blogspot.com/2012/02/warning-to-gop-candidates-no-nanny.html
My 1981 Toyota Tercel got better gas mileage than the Pious. Nuff said.
If you had any sense of decency when it came to environmental justice, you’d get one of these. Back to the future! Back to Simplicity!
It really is this simple!
The Prius ecology equation is complex.
Vast mining operations in Canada, transport of raw materials to Asia, production of the hybrid batteries, shipping the batteries back across the ocean to buyers….we still have to face up to the challenges of recycling those batteries once they age.
Not simple. Not at all.
right, and charging those batteries mostly uses coal, until Obama’s dream of “electricity prices must necessarily skyrocket” comes to pass. That might happen under an Obama “second half” dictatorship, because he states “you can build a coal plant, but I will be sure to bankrupt you” using unelected EPA greenie/commie mandates.
We have 300 years worth of energy from U.S. coal that our enemies want to be sure we don’t tap into. We can build nuke plants safer than anybody .. another threat to our enemies. We have lotsa oil and natural gas, so Obama tries to shut that down, while our enemies produce uncleanly and charge us top dollar.
We may need to rein in Jon Corzine and his fellow gamblers that risk leveraged client money for personal gain, but there are real producers out there that take punishment for producing, while Democrat gamblers demand bailouts and the right to “rehypothecate” client funds.
We very simply have leveraged gambler thugs in control of our country. They don’t live simply … in NY they are coked up traders with $1000/hr hookers. They privatize profits and socialize risk. In CA the Hollywood jet setters are drugged up producers of leftist entertainment.
I live on a farm that was in my family for 100 years. That farmer family knew how to simply survive. These Prious drivers mostly are clueless on what it takes to live simply … they are government dependents in regulatory ways they don’t comprehend.
But they are happy, as long as their mutual funds keep returning their god given 15% annual returns … Bernanke shall provide .. right? A rude awakening is coming, at which point these limo liberals will say screw the environment, I want my million dollar 401k restored. They are the lords of sanctimony, destroying the simple life.
Paul McCartney was awarded a Lexus hybrid for doing promotional work for the company. It was sent by plane instead of boat:
A source close to the former Beatle was quoted as saying that Paul will be “horrified after learning it was delivered by plane.
Paul has always campaigned for green issues and he can’t understand why anyone would send an enormous car from Japan to Britain on a plane.”
Just how high is the carbon impact of shipping a car 7,000 miles on a Korean Air Flight? According to the offsetting company CO2balance.com, “the plane journey would have caused a carbon footprint of 38,050kg, compared to 397kg for a three-week boat journey.” That means that the impact of shipping the car by plane is just as impactful as driving the same car around the world six times, according to Mike Rigby, director of CO2balance.com.
Paul probably meant well … but any consideration of CO2 numbers plays into the CO2 hoax. From my studies, it is almost certain that more CO2 would benefit the environment. Commercial greenhouses increase CO2 deliberately for better production.
Warmers oceans can’t hold as much CO2, so a correlation of increased CO2 and warmer world temps is naturally expected. Increased CO2 is no more causative of increased temps than steam from a boiled pot of water is causing the pot to boil. The heat comes first.
“Hey farmer farmer … put away the DDT now” is what young but ignorant Joni instructed us, but if we’d kept the DDT we’d have saved millions in Africa that died from malaria, since very effective DDT is in reality, mostly harmless to humans, and was only a small problem for the raptors, even when it was overused indiscriminately. (mosquitoes adapted to DDT, but we have other chemicals now) Even after the DDT scare was debunked, most still believe youngster Joni was right.
Too many are stuck in the sixties, and are letting Hollywood write the script for the world’s future. I like to remind nostalgic adults that our guru’s of the sixties were mostly drugged up kids in their 20’s. Joni had “looked at life from both sides now” when she was only 25, a few years experience as a privileged “adult” … I wonder how many sides she has seen after another 40 years of adult life, even from her protected celebrity position. 🙂

Self-righteously preen, pontificate and, especially, THINK simply…sustained concentrated thought just hurts the head waaaay too much.
