For some reason, one of my Facebook "friends" is a supporter of The Tea Party, why I will never know. Anyway, I click on one of his links, as sometimes, the far right wing stupidity amuses me. Here is what it says:
We know liberals are nuts. In fact calling them just plain crazy is an understatement. Every now and then a liberal comes out with something so crazy and stupid that you just have to sit there and shake your head in amazement.
There is one liberal who may have made it into the liberal mental illness hall of fame. Who is it and what did they do?
There is a liberal named Daphne Tremayne and she runs a website called Greentremayne.com. Surely she is an Al Gore devote or maybe she has just learned from his carbon credits scam because guess what she is selling?
But she wants to tell us all how to live.
Her first suggestion: do not have children.
That is probably really good advice for her as we definitely have too many stupid people in the world today. But she takes it further. She says:
If You Must Have Children, Buy Baby Credits
Baby Credits are similar to regular Carbon Credits, however, instead of being backed by non-productive parcels of land, Baby Credits are backed by non-productive women of child-bearing age. We at GreenTremayne have contracted to purchase Fair Trade Baby Credits from tuberculosis sanatoriums in Africa, where quarantining has resulted in the segregation of male and female patients. With every Baby Credit you purchase, you can have the peace of mind knowing that your money goes to support non-productive women in the developing world. And because poverty is rampant in Africa, Baby Credits can be purchased at bargain prices. Baby Credits make great shower gifts. See our products page for more information about ordering Baby Credits!
What a scam! This is certainly the validation of PT Barnum’s truism that there is a sucker born every minute and a fool and his money are soon parted. Al Gore has made a fortune scamming people on this carbon credit nonsense. This is much like the Middle Ages scam of selling indulgences.
But for Daphne Tremayne, the scamming goes straight into crazy with this next advice.
Euthanize Your Old Pet
Pets have become a common feature in most homes and are an attribute of the modern, Western lifestyle. We all love our dogs and cats, but really, when you think about it, pets are a major producer of excess carbon. One of the best ways to reasonably enjoy your pet and reduce your overall Carbon Footprint is to determine in advance how long your pet should live. As a family, set a date when your pet will be euthanized. One great way to teach children the value of pet euthanasia is to turn the occasion into a family celebration. Let's say you've set March 10, five years from now, as your pet's euthanasia date. For the next five years, celebrate March 10 as your pet's special day, with a family party and perhaps a visit to your pet's future burial spot. Teach your children to think of the occasion as a birthday in reverse. A predetermined euthanasia date will encourage your family to love and care for your furry friend while it's still young and playful. What's more, pre-planing for pet termination not only works towards reducing your family's Carbon Footprint, but guarantees long term reduction in veterinary expenses.
Is she insane?
Yes, I want to traumatize my kids by letting them know two years from now we are going to murder their beloved pet. That makes so much sense. Yes, Daphne, please do not breed. You are too stupid to be a parent. In fact, you probably should not make any decision any more important than deciding whether you should flush the toilet, though I doubt she does that by worrying she’ll use too much water.
The scary thought with the liberal nut jobs is where things go if you take their insane ideas to their logical conclusion.
Old people create a larger “carbon footprint.” Liberals love to get rid of old people. Look at Obamacare. If you are a senior citizen, you can forget about life saving medical care. All you get is comfort care under socialist healthcare. Not only does socialist healthcare cause suffering and death, it allows socialists to reduce our carbon footprint.
It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to conclude that eventually, these nutjobs will use the same argument for scheduling senior citizens to be euthanized at a certain age. But don’t get too upset, because every year for the rest of your pre-determined life, they’ll throw you a party to remind you that in just a few short years, they’ll terminate your time on this planet.
I have a suggestion for all of these liberals who are so obsessed with reducing carbon footprints. Let’s start with them.
For people like Daphne Tremayne, if you are serious about reducing your carbon footprint, why don’t you move to a village in the Amazon River area? You can be childless and petless there. You can live without electricity or any of the modern conveniences that you think cause all of the world’s problems.
Of course, liberals like Daphne Tremayne are not going to do that. They will not give up their designer clothes or their nice homes or their computers, TV’s, Iphones, IPads and other modern toys.
They simply want everyone else to suffer. Liberals love to claim how fair they are. Yet everywhere liberals are, they want to do the same thing. They want others to suffer while they are the elite class.
Liberals are not only nuts they are hypocrites. If you doubt, just look at them, what they say and more importantly what they believe.
Then be very afraid.
Yes, be very afraid. Why should you be afraid? It is satire, intentionally. look at the website.
What we should be afraid of is extremes on both ends as there are those on the far left who also thought that this is serious and agreed with it.
Really, extremism is a mental illness and that is equally shared on the far right and far left. Morons that support The Tea Party just paint anyone who has a liberal view as being extremist and mentally ill are what is wrong in modern politics. Supporting gay marriage isn't liberal, it is just treating people equally, as the constitution of America would want. They support the Supreme Court when it disagrees with a government it dislikes and attack it when it disagrees with a government it likes. The fact they get so much support disappoints me. If a far left party got as much support, it would equally disappoint me. I believe that many people think Stephen Colbert is real and would support what he says - they just don't get satire. I don't always either, as some of it is disguised well, but if I smell a rat, I don't go off on some silly rant about it.
Just for the record, I support anything that causes no real harm (offence is not harm) to others by your actions. If you follow that, then it is no business of mine, or the government.
