My feelings are hurt. Our president considers me a Flat-earther:
President Obama angrily blasted climate change skeptics during his energy policy speech Tuesday at Georgetown University, saying he lacked “patience for anyone who denies that this problem is real.”
“We don’t have time for a meeting of the flat-Earth society,” Obama said. “Sticking your head in the sand might make you feel safer, but it’s not going to protect you from the coming storm.”
I think the problem likely is he counted his chickens before they hatched. He was planning on Carbon Taxes to fund the huge debt he has created. Now there are many signs that Global Warming is not real, and therefore there is no reason for those taxes.
It was a bad idea to begin with, because you cannot increase taxes to that degree without crippling the economy.
He wants to close down the fossil fuel powered plants that generate electricity, and replace them with something which doesn’t yet work, where it even exists. This too is a case of counting unhatched chickens.
A saying, perhaps used by Stalin, states, “You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.” However, not only does that mean no chickens will hatch, it ignores the rest of the saying, which continues, “…but it is amazing how many eggs you can break without making a decent omelet.”
However perhaps I should not give President Obama any good advice. He is making me a little nervous that he may change the saying to, “You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few legs.”
If he wants to be wrong, what can I say?
