Message to Global Warming Greenie knuckleheads: Piss Off.

Monday, October 25th, 2010

And what better way to deliver the message than to purchase a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, a 16-cylinder, 4 fuel pump, 1200 hp monster that – at 268 MPH – is the world’s fastest production car.   That engine produces more than five times the horsepower (and double the speed) of some airplanes I have flown.

Price? $2.5 to $3 million per.  Chump change.   I meant what I said literally – you should simply purchase one – because only someone who is clinically insane will actually try to drive this car the way it can be driven.  To paraphrase Alec Baldwin in the famous “Coffee Is For Closers” speech from Glengarry Glen Ross: “It’s sitting out there waiting for you to drive it.  Are you going to drive it?  Are you man enough to drive it?”

Oh, and this version is an upgrade from the original Veyron, which could only muster 253 MPH.   That car was for pussies; this one goes faster, so it’s for real men.

Gas mileage?  Who knows and who fucking cares?  If it doesn’t get shittier fuel economy than an M-1 Abrams tank (approx. 1 gallon per mile, and 10 gallons just to start it up), I’d be disappointed and demand my money back.

The only way to savor this in-your-face-insult to the “smaller is better, America uses more than its share of the world’s resources” crowd is to drive it with a lead foot, a deep pocket (for the inevitable scorching fines for speeding), and puffing on a massive Churchillian-solid fuel rocket booster-smokestack of a cigar: the inimitable Arturo Fuentes Opus X Aged Selection ($149.95 at Cigar.com).  Well, you could then drive by a Greenpeace rally and show off your insensitivity.  That would be pretty cool.

Light the fires, kick the tires, and speed off into immortality…

Is Your PC Red?

Here’s the lasted Commie Tunes from Commie Blaster:

George Soros seems to pull the strings of the Obama administration…this postulates that he controls much of our information technology, as well, particularly Google (no surprise).   Apple and Microsoft apparently have similar political leanings, and are directly influenced by Soros’ “open society” (i.e., socialist) vision for the world.  Pay particular attention to part where Bill Gates is discussing ways in which to reduce the world population (this is particularly creepy): vaccines, health care, and reproductive health services (code words for abortion).  The abortion part, I get.  No babies = fewer people, if that is your objective.  But vaccines and health care are supposed to improve life expectancy, so WTF does he mean by that statement?  It sounds kinda sinister.

Discuss amongst yourselves.

Own a home? Want to sell it? Too bad…you’re hosed.

Friday, April 16th, 2010

We all knew it was coming, and as promised, The Cap and Tax bill is scheduled to be voted on in the Senate.   This legislation is ugly, folks; not that we’d expect anything less of our Congresscreeps.  Among the many draconian gems we can expect to have imposed from this legislation, the most economically disastrous one is this: you will not be able to sell your house.  As stated at Repubx:

  • In effect, this bill prevents you from selling your home without the permission of the EPA administrator.

  • To get this permission, you will have to have the energy efficiency of your home measured.

  • Then the government will tell you what your new energy efficiency requirement is and you will be forced to make modifications to your home under the retrofit provisions of this Act to comply with the new energy and water efficiency requirements.

  • Then you will have to get your home measured again and get a license (called a “label” in the Act) that must be posted on your property to show what your efficiency rating is; sort of like the Energy Star efficiency rating label on your refrigerator or air conditioner.

  • If you don’t get a high enough rating, you can’t sell. And, the EPA administrator is authorized to raise the standards every year, even above the automatic energy efficiency increases built into the Act.

The EPA administrator, appointed by the President, will run the Cap & Trade program (AKA the “American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009”) and is authorized to make any future changes to the regulations and standards he alone determines to be in the government’s best interest. Requirements are set low initially so the bill will pass Congress; then the Administrator can set much tougher new standards every year.

This is glaringly unconstitutional, but that little fact will not deter the current runaway Senate.  What we are experiencing in the era of Hope and Change is the rape of the American economy.  It doesn’t seem to matter how loud we scream…all we manage to do is amuse Obama, and the hits keep coming. Disgusting.  Democrats need an ass whupping on a major scale, and as I’ve said before–November cannot come soon enough to suit me.

The Conceit of Global Warmism

Saturday, March 27th, 2010

– Elphaba

In honor of Earth Hour, I present you with this glorious clip of George Carlin; everything I want to say to navel-gazing global warmists, he says right here:

“Environmentalists don’t give a shit about the planet; not in the abstract, they don’t…not in the abstract, they don’t!  You know what they’re interested in?  A clean place to live.  Their own habitat.  The worry that sometime in the future, they might be inconvenienced.  Narrow, unenlightened self-interest doesn’t impress me.  Besides, there is nothing wrong with the planet, the planet is fine.  The people are fucked!  Difference!  Difference!  The planet is fine!  Compared to the people, the planet is great!  It’s been here four and a half billion years…do you ever think about the arithmetic?  The planet has been here four and a half billion years; we’ve been here, what– a hundred thousand?  Maybe two hundred thousand, and we’ve only been engaged in heavy industry for a little over two hundred years.  Two hundred years vs. four and a half billion, and we have the conceit that somehow we’re a threat, that somehow we’re gonna put in jeopardy this beautiful little blue-green ball that’s just a-floatin’ around the sun?  The planet has been through a lot worse than us.  The planet has been through all kinds of things worse than us.  Been through earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles, hundred of thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors, world-wide floods, tidal waves, world-wide fires, erosion, cosmic rays, recurring ice ages, and we think some plastic bags and some aluminum cans are going to make a difference? (laughs)  The planet…the planet…the planet isn’t going anywhereWE are!

Abso-freaking-lutely.  “The planet is fine. The PEOPLE are fucked!”  And the sad thing is, our demise likely won’t be from any form of natural disaster, but from the purile antics of self-interested, ham-fisted politicians and the stupid, mindless sheep who unquestioningly do their bidding.

It would be funnier if instead of “winter” it said “Al Gore.”

Global Whining

Friday, March 5th, 2010

– Elphaba

I was reading a fine article over at Soylent Green this morning, and the subject matter got me to thinking.

Global Warming Science

I live in the United States of America, the greatest country on the face of the Earth.  I should not have a care–I did everything right.  I worked hard, I played by the rules, I paid taxes, I supported charities, I contributed to society; I should be unapologetically farting through silk.  Only…somehow, the world around me went completely, certifiably, batshit insane.  It went all Alice In Wonderland on me!  (Note to self…that bottle that says “DRINK ME”?  Um.  DON’T!) I find myself living in a world where a divinity school dropout is considered to be an authority on climate science, where a terrorist can win a Nobel Peace Prize—heck, where any unaccomplished assclown can win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing….what was it BHO did?  Oh, yeah, f*** all! Living in world where everything is increasingly backwards: morally, ethically, and factually…an Orwellian (Animal Farm and 1984) hell.  For instance, while the corruptocrats are busy convincing the world that AGW exists and is a settled science, I’m living through the coldest winter in my part of the globe in ten years, subsisting on a fraction of what my income used to be, thanks to the hamhanded shenanigans of politicians I never voted for.  In the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, these same global warmists are continuing full steam ahead with their agenda, and damn the truth.

Debunking Global Warming

I should be farting through silk, I should.  Instead, I’m farting through threadbare polar fleece.  Up yours, Al Gore.

/end rant.

For once, a sensible commentary on climate change

I know everyone has been done to death with the whole Global Warming thing, but this is an outstanding video discussing how the environmental movement got waylaid by posers and profiteers.  About 9 minutes long, and worth every minute of your time to watch it.

Try teleconferencing next time, jerks.

2007 U.N. Climate Change Conference held in Bali, Indonesia.

2008 U.N. Climate Change Conference held in Sydney, Australia.

2009 U.N. Climate Change Conference held in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Lots of long distance,  heavy-carbon-footprint private jet and airline flights.  And still, the hypocritical pinheads in the “global warming” movement want to restrict everyone else’s flying:

Global Warming Activists Furious with Harrison Ford

Environmental activists have blasted Harrison Ford for making “unnecessary” trips by air, following revelations he once made a jet journey to buy a cheeseburger.

The “Indiana Jones” star began flying when he was 52. After receiving his license, he went on to purchase several aircraft, which he keeps at Santa Monica Airport in California.

He recently revealed in an interview the extent of his love for piloting, telling Britain’s Live magazine, “Learning to fly was a work of art. I’m so passionate about flying I often fly up the coast for a cheeseburger. Flying is like good music; it elevates the spirit and it’s an exhilarating freedom.”

But the 67-year-old has come under fire from experts at Carbonfootprint.com over the comments, who are outraged he would make an airplane journey for such an “unnecessary” trip.

And Dr. Wendy Buckley, director of the Web site, has called on Ford to set an environmental example and cut back on his flying.

She tells WENN, “Flying is a huge source of carbon emissions and making unnecessary journeys by plane can no longer be seen as responsible to our environment.

The rules are for thee, and not for me.  Jackasses.

The only thing that would make this story better is if Harrison had flown up the coast, stopped to eat lunch, and said “you know, they charge too much for their cheeseburgers here; I think I’ll fly back down the coast to Santa Monica and check out the restaurants there.”
