Happy Earth Day! Note the cute mantra: “We treat this world of ours as if we have a spare in the trunk!”
While Obama is busy deporting Saudi nationals to avoid terror cell scrutiny, the rest of the liberal zealots are painting themselves green and assaulting plastic.
Of course, the environmentalmidgets claim to embrace science (even though they are unclear as to the difference between plate tectonics, atmospheric conditions, planetary positions and weather) but liberals get most of their information from movies - you know, from The China Syndrome, Love Canal, Silkwood, Erin Brockovich, Waterworld, Avatar, The Day After Tomorrow, to An Inconvenient Truth.
Of course, all of these films share the same theme: man versus his environment that only HE is responsible for damaging to the point of retribution. The earth rises up and gets its revenge. Yep karmic payback. This is what you people get for the ultimate sin of styrofoam. Some of these fabulous films even pit the evil corrupt mega-conglomerates who always seem to be guilty of a conspiracy to cover up the HARMFUL EFFECTS of said toxin.
Damn... if we had only ratified Kyoto.
The history of Earth Day is tainted by those credited with founding the movement. Today, the credit for Earth Day is given solely to the EPA and Senator Gaylord Nelson, a free-spending liberal Democrat from Wisconsin who believed that government’s role should be expanded to rule over hiking trails and anything popular culture would deem as “pollution.” Gaylord was also the first Senator to sponsor a bill to end the use of DDT (which ultimately happened after a self-proclaimed marine biologist named Rachel Carson published a popular book claiming scientific proof of dangers of DTT which were later found to be exaggerated). Of course without the use of DDT, hundreds of millions (according to CDC) have died from malaria and even more from starvation because food supplies were decimated by out of control insect populations. Meanwhile Earth Day had a little help from Republicans. Contrary to modern Democrats’ ill-informed blather, President Nixon actually formed the EPA in 1970. But the most interesting part of the history of the founding of Earth Day is still largely unreported. Credited with coco-founding the movement, the official Master of Ceremonies at the inaugural earth day event 43 years ago was a gent by the name of Ira Einhorn. Einhorn was later found to have murdered his girlfriend, Holly Maddux, after luring her to his apartment in a heartbroken rage. He let her body rot in a newspaper packed trunk for nearly two decades. Very earthy indeed.
So while environmental whackos continue to make up scientific facts to support their crazed banning of key aspects of energy exploration, agriculture, and transportation, the popular kids have latched onto the pseudo science of global warming and hatred of meat eaters. So go paint yourself green, eat some kale, recycle a piece of plastic and have a great Earth Day.
