EcoFreaks and 9/11

Here’s an apparently award-winning ad campaign for the World Wildlife Fund:

911tsunami-small

If you can’t read the tagline up there it is:

“The tsunami killed 100 times more people than 9/11. The planet is brutally powerful. Respect it. Preserve it.”

Absolutely no respect for the people who were trapped and had to choose between burning to death or jumping 105 floors down.  No respect for all the firemen and policemen who responded and ended up crushed under tons of rubble.  No respect for anything other than their trivialization of a major terrorist attack.

Thanks to AdFreak for noting this.

And if you’d like to tell the World Wildlife Fund what you think of their ad campaign, its http://www.wwf.org

The Great Liberal Panemonium Machine

The Mexican swine flu pandemic? Oh, that’s soooo yesterday. Global Warming? All those confident “scientific” predictions are falling apart around the world, even as greedy politicians still try to squeeze the last little drops of power and money out of them. Human flesh-eating bacteria? SARS? Ozone holes? Mad Cow? The Curse of the Killer Tomatoes? Water torture? CO2? Bee Colony Collapse? It never ends. As long as scare stories sell, as long as millions of indoctrinated suckers fall for them they will never end. They’ve got you on a rat-running wheel, running scared every day, like rats scrambling to get away from electrical shocks that never actually come.

The Left rules by constant fear, but none of its predicted catastrophes come true. Ever notice that? Instead, we do have real things to worry about, all right — but half of them are the results of the Media Pandemonium Machine itself. Like one third of the little kids in our world who are now convinced — by cynical or deluded adults — that they won’t live long enough to enjoy a healthy adulthood. That is a terrible burden imposed on little children by the Left, in its never-ending grab for power.
There is an element of sadistic cruelty in the Leftist Pandemonium Machine. “Pandemonium” is the imaginary Hell of devils, and there is something truly demonic about the torrent of media madness we have to tolerate every day.
The Great Liberal Pandemonium Machine is spreading disease, all right, but it’s a psychiatric disease — of unjustified fear, depression, and despair.
there are some very realistic dangers — like terrorists blowing up a chunk of Manhattan or getting nuclear weapons.

Happy Stimulus Day!

I’m just so happy that the Stimulus Bill has been signed (in my very own state no less) that I just know this is going to become a national holiday.  Decades from now people will look back on this day and see the moment with the earth was healed, the oceans stopped rising, and everybody started farting rainbows.  And I don’t mean metaphysical “happiness” rainbows.  I mean actual rays of refracted light emenating from the orifices of every man, woman, and child in America.  Of course, I haven’t actually seen any of these farted rainbows yet, but that could simply mean I haven’t been in the presence of anyone with gas.  Or anyone with happy stimulus gas.

Of course, no one has really read the whole stimulus bill and therefore knows a) what it really spends b) what regulations and destruction of sections of the economy will occur nor c) just how Republicans will be punished for not supporting the will of the Chosen Ones of Democrat.  We know that Republicans will be punished for not supporting the The Messiah.   Obama is perfect in all he says and does, and those who oppose him must be punished.

But back to happy thoughts.   Are you one of the 95% of Americans who will be getting a tax cut?  Well, perhaps you are.  But its really impossible right now to tell if you are one of the happy, happy bunch who will be getting tax relief.  In fact, even if you don’t pay any income taxes you will be getting a tax refund check.  This is not a welfare check – no, no, no.  Those who say that getting a check when you didn’t pay any tax are Republicans and Republicans will be punished.  What we have is happy bunny checks coming to everybody.  Happy, happy bunnies.  Bunnies that multiply into stimulus for the economy.  $13 a week according to most reports.  That’s really happy.

And who do we have to thank for the rainbows and bunnies?  Well, this woman for one:

pelosi_stupid_grin

Aren’t you reassured to know that she is third in line to succeed to the Presidency of the United States?  Isn’t that yet another thought to be happy about on this Happy Stimulus Day.

Website Attacking A Baby

From Right Wing News and John Hawkins:

Make no mistake about it; the left’s attacks on Sarah Palin’s family are meant to be a Mafia style message to other conservative women — you cross us and we’ll come after your children.

If you want to see how far they’ll go, witness this entry from an anonymous blog dedicated to attacking Trig Palin (I’ll leave it to the netroots to actually link the blog because I’m not going to do it). Yes, that’s right, some liberal out there has actually created an entire blog dedicated to mocking a baby with Down’s Syndrome.

To give you an idea of what the content is like, here’s a screenshot of one of the posts,

No one who does this has any claim to be some sort of moral person.  Just a thug with absolutely no center.

Leftists Edwards Defenses

Just going to try and keep track of the stupidest that I find.

Let’s start with the “everybody in America is a cheat” theme:

You see, John Edwards may be unique in having had the opportunity to run for president of the United States, but his affair puts him on a par with the majority of the American public. The fact that we stop to gawk at him underscores our similarity to a herd of zebras, while our holier-than-thou looks of disdain uncover our propensity for self-forgiving double standards.

Yeah.  Right.  A majority of Americans have cheated on their spouses?  I call Barbra Striesand on that one.  And while we know that Democrat Presidents cheating on their wives is standard – its the whole “elect me President because my wife is dying of cancer” meme that he ran his whole campaign on that gives this a bit more of the hypocrite stink than normal.  As in high-diving into the cesspit and drinking deeply.

Of course there is the ‘nothing personal should be reported‘ theme:

Speaking only for myself- who cares? What people do in their personal lives is between them and the other people in their personal lives.

Wouldn’t it be better if we all stood together and said he never should have been asked about it in the first place? That it shouldn’t be a political factor? That it’s up to us to try to change that dynamic? As long as we are afraid of and submit to the politics of personal lives, we allow such politics to persist and prevail.

Unless the personal life is one that is of a conservative, of course.  But sure – why don’t you just go ahead and change all of humanity so nobody cares about other people’s personal lives.  Why don’t you get Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and Paris Hilton working on that one?  But then, who would give a crap about these airheads if people didn’t obsess about other people’s personal lives.  Maybe one of those things that people do?

And knowing how you live your personal life does tend to give some insight in how you will conduct your professional one.  As in Clinton would throw anyone and anything over the side in order to further his personal power – whereas George W Bush has stuck to his view on Iraq regardlesss of how much you liars beat him up?

The ever-popular – its all HER fault defense:

Monday’s CBS Early Show, came up with a list of excuses for John Edwards cheating on his wife, including co-host Harry Smith suggesting that the woman Edwards had the affair with, Rielle Hunter, targeted the former Senator: “This woman in question has a very interesting history…knowing her as this kind of bar fly who had this kind of crazy past… From reading everything I read it seemed to me that she targeted Edwards.”

it was the fault of the cancer defense:

In the later segment, during the 7:30am half hour, Smith talked to psychologists Robi Ludwig, from Cookie magazine, and Frank Farley, from Temple University. Smith began by posing the question: “Why do politicians like John Edwards risk their careers by having extramarital affairs?” Ludwig decided to blame Elizabeth Edwards’s cancer: “What was the trigger? So I wonder if there was something about his wife’s illness that somehow got him to cheat or contributed at least.”

the “he was afraid of losing his wife” defense:

Ludwig replied: “Well, you know, I think that we get so caught up in good or bad, you know. Is somebody a good person or a bad person. Cheating is wrong…But I think that there are multiple factors. Was he doing it because he had a fear of losing his wife? I mean, there are lots of different reasons.” Smith then conceded: “No, I hear that…there may be legitimacy to that.”

the “he just couldn’t help himself” defense:

“It’s possible he couldn’t stop himself, in the sense. You know? The career of politics involves all sorts of change, variety, novelty, risk, uncertainty. They tend to be natural rule-breakers, these — the folks who go in there, you know. If they followed the strict rules, they’d have a 9:00 to 5:00 ordinary job.”

Then there is the “no big deal” defense:

you’d think JE was the first politician to have an affair, when they’ve been doing it for thousands of years.

Is it wrong? Yes. Does it erase all the good things about JE? No.

He’s not evil. He just made a huge mistake. It’s one he should have to pay consequences for, but it’s certainly not an unforgivable sin.

It’s just a mistake.  Like when you are driving down the road and you take the wrong turn.  And then you actively seek out some blonde bimbo, take off her clothes and have sex with her and create a baby and lie to your wife and family and country and pay her hush money and get your aide to say he’s the father and pay heaven knows how much money to this tart to get HER to refuse to take a DNA test so the lie on the child will not come back to you.  Just a mistake like that.
