Why is it that every time you debate with an environmentalist regarding climate change they end their statement with "even if we're wrong..."?
The sad fact is that by the simple act of surviving on this planet humans are affecting the environment. It's almost impossible to step on the beach without displacing some sand.
It is true-we need to find alternatives in energy as well as other areas that are creating environmental issues, however the knee jerk reactions that the government takes are only creating a secondary list of problems and causing even more harm.
The switch to CFLs for instance-without following the impact all the way through we now have a situation where mass amounts of mercury are being deposited into our landfills, some say as much as 97% of CFLs aren't being disposed of properly. Not to mention the health hazards now being found with regard to the bulbs emissions.
Electric cars were supposed to be the answer for transportation woes on the environment. Unfortunately the production and subsequent operation of said vehicles actually creates a greater carbon footprint than the similar gas vehicles. Again we also have to look at the highly toxic end product of the batteries.
The ethanol initiative was supposed to reduce green house gases? Well, the production actually has increased the green house gases. Ask Uncle Al, he admits he lied about it.
So, through obama's initiatives, he is creating dirtier air and dirtier water.
His toxic environment doesn't stop there either.
Is it any wonder that there is a surge in domestic born violence in the US? Not really when you look at the divisive messages that the obama regime touts, coupled with the despair of the economy, new threats of nuclear war not seen since the USSR, and a liberal media that fawns on every word and nurtures the lies that are consistently belched by this administration. How about a little fact checking and honesty? Too much to ask?
Don't you find it a bit odd that Jackson is forming a mob to protest the saving of Detroit's failing finances. Is Rev. Al there too? Why aren't they in Florida calling for the firing of Deandre Poole "Ph.D."? He got a student suspended for NOT stomping on a piece of paper with the name of Jesus on it. The student, Mr. Rotela, is a Mormon. I guess they don't rate as high as some thugs in our society. At least on Jackson's and Sharpton's racist scale.
So obama is coming home from his FIRST trip to Israel since becoming President. Hmm. Only took five years to visit one of our staunchest allies. And everyone is wondering why he even bothered. Could have saved the tax payers a lot of money if he just photo shopped himself into all of his photo ops and then lied about going there. After all, who would dare challenge him?
There is a reason that obama is only speaking to high schools and some colleges-it is to nurture his socialist bile rhetoric-let the government be your guide and the government will take care of you-all of you-equally- without merit or expectations.... It's a cult supported by the revisionist teaching within the institutions and it needs to stop. We need our children to be truly free thinkers and ensure they have the drive and ambition to succeed in this world. Competition is part of that, loosing is part of that, mistakes are part of that, disappointment is part of that. But so too is success and winning.
And we need to allow our children to grow up as who they are-little boys and girls. Not some genderless blanks to be formed into what they are not in nature.
Let the girls play with dolls and have pink rooms. Let the boys play war or cops and robbers and have blue rooms. Don't you think that the knee jerk reactions of the psycho babbling administrations aren't going to cause more harm than good? Look at what such reactions are doing to the environment. Are we going to wait for a decade before we realize that the only thing we have accomplished was creating a society dependent on government, that are afraid to compete to succeed, that believe that they have a birthright of support from cradle to grave, that are afraid to stand up for what they believe is right? We aren't teaching our children to be Davids. We are teaching them to be scarecrows and lions circa The Wizard of Oz.
This is only going to stop if we give our children a full and equally footed base of knowledge. It isn't need to know, it is full disclosure-no spin, no agenda. A debate isn't a debate if the knowledge of the topic is skewed to one side.
