Rant blank ends for now...

Wow.... just when I thought I was running out of rant fuel... I came across this link by Mr. Rockwell, http://www.lewrockwell.com/rockwell/obamas-corporate-state.html He says, "I really think it comes down to this: leftists, in their heart of hearts, hate capitalism more than they fear the total state." --- And it got me thinnin' (Iaawwwl do the thinnin' 'roun' here bubba louie! - remember Kvicks Draw McGraw?) ;-) I would make a comment or two.... or three... --- I am currently reading,  "The Really Inconvenient Truths: Seven Environmental Catastrophes Liberals Don't Want You to Know About--Because They Helped Cause Them," by  Iain Murray. It reinforces my belief that radical environmentalists are actually motivated, in their heart of hearts, not by any genuine concern with the environment but rather by a white hot hatred of freedom, capitalism and humanity. (Actually, every time I hear, for example, David Suzuki open his mouth about some i…

Green Hell

Steve Milloy (junkscience.com) has a new book out... Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Ruin Your Life and What You Can Do to Stop Them (Hardcover). I'm going to buy a copy.

I have found that they don't last as long as the old fashioned incandescent ones. They come with a seven year guarantee but I can never find the receipt or packaging when I need it... it's been recycled.

It's like saying we can create thousands of jobs for newly hired fire fighters by lighting huge piles of tires on fire. Kind of like Obamanomics no?) I notice they have installed some funny kind of system…

Honestly, I have been trying so hard to be good lately. Every time I click on the "send," button I feel guilty. "There I go again, filling up my contacts mailboxes with unwanted opinions." Every now and then, an exasperated recipient of my night-owl rants will send me an email asking me to please delete them from my distribution list. And I promptly honour their request(s.) Others send me subtle hints... like the one I got the other day pointing to several online resources which provide help to alcoholics. (Thanks for that one ;-) I am sure many others are just too polite to do that, mutter in their minds - "oh, another emotive spasm from that a**hole Wienhold," before they click on the "X" button. Really folks, if this stuff is of no interest to you just tell me to delete you from my list. I have no desire to bother anyone who is really not interested in what I have to say. Well, one guy did piss me off a bit. He is supposed to be a &q…
