Today is Lenin's birthday, conveniently celebrated as Earth Day.
I very nearly forgot. Will have to drive the Earthf**ker home in 4WD with the air conditioning on. If I get real lucky, I'll find a Prius somewhere along the route I can pull up along side and rev the 345 HP hemi a few dozen times. Once I get home, I'm installing 100W incandescent lightbulbs in every fixture, then I'm refreshing my air conditioner condenser with 100% freon.
Okay, silliness aside - oh, wait, no it's not. We're still being bombarded by the "Global Warming" silliness, even though pretty much every single "scientific" paper that has come out with "conclusive" evidence that Global Warming is real and ZOMG TEH POLAR BEARS has been proven to have about as much "scientific" research as the anti-gun groups' Google search. And yeah, speaking of Google, they see fit to celebrate "Earth Day" but not Easter.
What irks me most, I think, is that most of the right-leaning folks I know - the ones who, like me, have a healthy skepticism towards the whole "global warming" movement - are pretty much on the side of being conservation minded and such. We try to recycle as much as possible - although in our case, often we "recycle" by re-using rather than separating our trash. Glass jars? Handy brass sorters! Soda cans? BB gun or airsoft targets. Cardboard/paper? Kindling/firestarting. You know, like we've been doing for generations. We just haven't called it a fancy name is all.
Besides, Republicans are pro-environment: Strip-mining prevents forest fires!
That is all.
