Earth Hour. A universal show of awareness concerning the apocalyptic menace of the coming global-warming catastrophe.
All those who participated, raise their hands!
Now all those who participated and went right back to their normal routines, raise their hands!
Let me get this straight: ONE hour out of 8760 per year, people turn off their lights, feel really good about themselves, then it’s back to using eeeeevil electricity.
If this is not a monumental example meaningless liberalism at its highest level of hypocrisy, than it comes pretty damn close.
Don’t we all participate in about 8 hours of lights-out pretty much every night? At least those of us that actually prosper enough as a society to have electricity?
How many of these “feel gooders” rushed to get their dishwashing done and their clothes cleaned and dried just in time so they could participate in this empty gesture?
“Look! I did something good for the planet! I feel extra special about myself! I can now use all the lights in my 3 story house and not feel a bit of guilt!”
Let’s see how these nuts would do without electricity for a day. Or how these lit-up tourist attractions would fare without it for a week. They’d all be crying in their soured milk like a bunch of stone-aged mental cases.
Our esteemed press can provide world-wide coverage of this token crap, but God forbid they cover the thousands of Americans participating in the “Tea Parties” showing real outrage toward the socialization of our government.
Gimme a friggin’ break.
