IF ONLY AL GORE COULD GET THOSE CHICKENS, AND MAYBE A FEW POUNDS OF RICE, TO THOSE POOR PEOPLE THEY’VE SO ROYALLY SCREWED!

Sometimes you have to hit people between the eyes with a two-by-four … to get their attention.

Other times it simply helps to be hit in the wallet, or the stomach, or to have someone pull your head out of the ground before things start to get clear. Until that happens, naiveté, good intentions, lack of objectivity, and apathy can lead us to accepting fantasy as fact and schemes as solutions, instead of setting off red light in our brains. Unfortunately, there are so many distractions, so many people who are disinterested, and so many people with clouded minds and deep-seated anger and resentment issues, it’s easier to follow the crowd, finger-point, and buy into snake-oil schemes than it is to address problems the old-fashioned way - with facts, common sense, and hard work.

When you follow the crowd, dancing to the catchy tunes you hear, the pied-pipers leading the way will invariably send you tumbling off a cliff or into a cold dank river. It’s hard to be the maverick, to say the unpopular thing, to go against the tide … but once you cultivate objectivity and intellectual honesty, it’s virtually impossible not to stand alone and on your own feet, no matter the slings and arrows sent your way.

Speaking of rats, now that they have demonstrated the how global impact of their ill-conceived schemes, they are running for cover. We deniers have warned about the impact of using food for fuel, predicted the shortages and price increases that are finally here, have documented the impact of central planning, government subsidizing of industries that could not operate in a competitive world, and questioned the folly of creating energy sources that require more in material, energy, and effort than they produce themselves, all the while having a real man-made negative impact on the environment.

Where are you Al Gore? Dumping your bio-fuel stocks are we?

Oh, and did you hear? The collapsing glaciers shown in Gore’s pseudo-documentary An Inconvenient Truth were clips taken from the fictional movie, The Day After Tomorrow! The “glaciers” in the movie were sculpted from STYROFOAM and the scenes computer animated.

STYROFOAM! *LOL*

Why am I not surprised?

p.s. Barack Obama said today that the high price of oil is the fault of oil companies. Since he's shown no understanding of economics in the past year, perhaps some of those oil executives he's accepted campaign contributions from should tell him oil companies do not set oil prices. OPEC and the Oil Market does. Oil companies have no power to control prices because of past antitrust legislation.

Do you think he'll correct himself if someone asks for a clarification ... or scowl and whine because someone challenged him again? Never mind.

Well, I prayed all week for Saturday night
Turn my back on the sun and put the sack out of sight
Take the long dusty road into town
My feet kept the rhythm as I walked the hot ground
But nothing could keep me from my favorite spot
Where the chicks were a-waitin' and the music was hot
Born to boogie
Lord, I got the rhythm
And it wasn't very long
Till I done the boogie woogie rhythm
