Holy shit!

We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” Obama said.

“That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen,” he added.

I’m gobsmacked. Floored. Stonked. Pole-axed. Out of synonyms for ‘fucking astonished.’ A candidate for President of the United States just told the American people he was going to force them to go hungry. So maybe the rest of the world will like us better.

WE CAN’T EAT AS MUCH AS WE WANT?

Shee-it.

Why is it that every other country can do whatever they way but we’re expected to bend over backwards (or forwards as the case may be) for the so-called “international community”? What has the international community done for us?

You know, every state has the duty and obligation to be selfish, to seek the state’s interests even at the expense of other states’ interests. That’s why the state exists.

I just don’t know. We and many of our friends have been putting our ducks in a row these past couple of years. But these f*cks in congress…that is their intention.

Just Friday evening MWG and I were standing outside installing a tonneau cover on the bed of my new pick-up truck, drinking a beer and I thought, “How wonderful and relaxing this is – I can do what I want, when I want and drink a beer at the same time, outside in my driveway. Nobody can stop me from enjoying simple pleasures – yet.” Then I thought about B.O. and how if he’s elected, it’s the first step down the slippery slope of no beer and no pick up trucks. Or that I can’t drink a beer outside. Or own a gun. Or they’ll take away my concealed carry permit.

For a split second, I felt a knot in my stomach thinking about it. But then I remembered that it hasn’t happened and hopefully it won’t.

But just in case I think I’ll stock up on beer and ammo.


Comment from Matt P

To someone like Obama the world is a zero sum game, if someone wins then someone must have lost. Mind you that kind of mind set says there is only be a limited amount of wealth in the world and that nothing can change that fact. Hence you have a man who sees any US gain as some poor country’s loss and who sees conservation as the only way to deal with scarcity.

The obvious retort is that proper use of capital actually creates wealth and value synergisticly and that it is actually possible for everyone to succeed if they use their resources wisely.

Liberals always want us to be open minded, when in reality they are the ones locked in to an unimaginative and flawed world view.

That said, stocking up on beer and ammo is always a good idea, except I’m always tempted to use them both on the way home from buying them.

Ran across an anecdote some years back, I believe related by Jay Nordlinger at NRO, telling the story of a couple visiting a small village in India. There, they met a man who was intensely curious about them and asked many questions of them. When they asked him of his curiosity, he replied “Oh, you must have done something wonderful to be reborn as Americans!”

In the summer there’s no AC unless it’s above 80.

During the winter, I keep the downstairs at 72, upstairs at 68…which means because the downstairs is at 72, the other furnace doesn’t click on as much. During the summer, 80 for both. Because of the energy efficient heating/cooling and proper insulation, our energy bill is about the same or less than my parents 3 bedroom ranch.

Seth – take a look at some of the reports on, for example http://wattsupwiththat.wordpress.com/ and http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/commentaries_essays/march_of_the_zealots.html for example.

These two resources are by qualified scientists – not Arts-edcated ‘science writers’ or Leftist politicians playing a symphony of angst on millenialist guilt-trips.

The proper academic study of AGW should be undertaken by sociologists, anthropologists and psychologists as much as climate physicists.

What is really interesting is why so many people are anxious to believe lies and distortions (the ‘hockey stick’ for example). What is driving the Left’s neo-puritansm and irrationality?

I’ll give you this much, though: farm subsidies hurt the developing world. For example, there is a dumbass rule that U.S. food aid to poor countries must come from American farmers rather than farmers in the area. So less food aid goes to those people, because of the increased costs for storage and transportation. That’s just one example.

By the way, President Bush is the one trying to get rid of that rule. Democrats (and some pork-laden Republicans) are the ones trying to keep it.

I think you’ve got this lefty wrong. We, too, are hedonists at heart (Look how much we love sex – that’s why we don’t eat so much – we prefer physically attractive partners). It’s just a matter or how long one wishes to keep one’s own head in the sand, ignore the elephant in the room [insert cliched metaphor here].

Seth, I’ve been known to try to engage in honest argument with leftists in the past. It’s a hard thing to do, because you have to take big issues and break them up into little, tiny pieces and then argue those pieces individually. That’s because both sides have built up gigantic piles of dogma in support of their overarching agendas.

After a careful examination of the evidence, I think your side is wrong and mine is right. But arguing the point would be a shitload of work and I’m lazy. And the general tone of this blog lends itself more to a discussion of magic rocks and Charlton Heston’s ass.

Seth, in a chaotic system such as the climate the forcing factors may change as a function of some other variable, i.e. the effect of CO2 may actually go down as a function of temperature. We do not know a priori how the forcing factors change. The GC models assumes fixed forcing factors.

He was right about the “hedonist” characterization: he simply doesn’t realize how totally the word fits them. Faux Intellectualistic Hedonism is as good a description of the Left as any. Any idea is good so long as it feels good. And no idea that feels bad should be entertained.

Allen is right about forcing factors. Last I read, CO2 seems to have been a lagging indicator for temperature change historically – e.g. increasing temperature (from the sun, stupid) increases CO2, not the other way around.

But why waste time on this. Thank you Badger! I am really glad the banananana is functional again.

Badger – Does your family crest have a Banana Rampant on it. Mine just has a stupid ol’ lion.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
