If you remember Chicken Little or his much larger cousin, Al Gore, then you know that the sky has been falling for years. In the early 1970s, the liberal contingent claimed that Styrofoam plates would kill us all. They put off gases, don’t you know? Of course, truth be told, it wasn’t the gases that emitted but the natural resources used in the production of the plates and cups that spurred the liberal’s interest in stopping the manufacturing of cheap, throw-away serving dishes. Under the Carter administration, the green thing really heated-up (pardon the pun) and the truth will-out. The liberals wanted to free mankind from the horrible “petroleum monster” that threatens to consume the earth with its power.
In the 1970s, the greener-movement had us on track to disappear within the next four decades. Really, we’re still here and so are Styrofoam plates. We’ve saved the whales by creating comparable products utilizing the horrible petroleum monster. So now, one must ask, “Do we save the whales and manufacture makeup, candles, and many more products using petroleum or do we tag the giant gentle beast as an ecological necessity to production?” The green movement needs to get a grip on their intentions. Whales live today because we use petroleum to manufacture all those necessities, yesterday. And, they are necessities. Have you ever seen a woman over 40 without her make up? Think Nancy Pelosi on ugly steroids and you will realize the need to have cosmetic enhancements.
No, it’s not a bad idea to plant a tree to replace a tree cultivated for lumber. It’s not a bad idea to grow your own vegetables to feed your family. It’s a wonderful idea to re-use many products to save money; however, people don’t re-use many products because the green movement is against capitalists, as a whole; however, they’re not against personal wealth for themselves. Many things you purchase second-hand have increased in value because they’re antiques. Almost everything, with the exception of the human being, increases in value with age. Human beings, especially the very old and the very young (baby) are optional and mostly disturbing to greeners who would save the planet for the chosen few.
Darwin’s hypothesis was that the original human slimed onto land from theprimordial ooze and now…well, we know who the ooze slimmer’s evolved into; liberals and some still have tails.
