What they really want is your money
The truth about rich liberals is that they want to stay rich and keep you dirt poor. Let’s take, for example, Ted Turner. Turner has made a fortune in the broadcast business, and because he is wealthy, he thinks that he is unusually smart – smarter than the rest of us poor, ignorant slobs. Last week, he made the unbelievable statement that “global warming is the most serious problem the world has ever faced.”
Turner is not the only one beginning to sing the “global warming tune.” Al Gore has tuned up once again to say that drastic steps must be taken to stop the world from frying. He is making the “rubber chicken” circuit to peddle his “snake oil,” and the sad part is that the mainstream media falls right in line with “Global Warming Al.” But this is to be expected since the media is populated with socialist who see this country as unfair, discriminatory, selfish, and arrogant, and the common man as dumb, too dumb, in fact, to think for himself.
I don’t know how these two gentlemen would fare on the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory, an instrument used by psychologist to assess the mental status of patients, but I suspect that the doctor who tried to interpret this test would see mental problems that he had never seen. Well, perhaps I overstate the issue – a little. Ted and Al are global warming advocates because of – you guessed it – the money.
They could care less about the science or the American economy. They’ve got theirs, and if you don’t have yours, tough. Have you noticed that most Democrats are like that?
Does the name East Anglia University ring a bell with you? This English university was the home of “global warming” science until a whistle blower released the papers that had been made up by the so-called scientists. Yes, they had made up the data to support their bogus science.
Today, everyone interested knows that global warming was a hoax perpetrated by liberals to take money and liberty away from you and me. Since Bill “Slick Willie” Clinton was in office, we have been hearing about a carbon tax. This means that a tax is going to be placed on every BTU any of us use. It will cost significantly more to heat and cool your home, purchase gas for your car, use the electric oven or wash your clothes. The global warming crowd wants you to live like middle age peasants while they jet about in their fancy jets to places like the French Riviera or the Swiss Alps, and eat the finest caviar known to man.
But liberals are everywhere, attaching themselves to every hair brained idea that some liberal or progressive thought tank can conjure. Just last week, a far-left columnist, Leonard Pitts, who works for the Miami Herald, wrote about a man who robbed a bank in order to get thrown in jail so that he could get medical treatment. According to Pitts’ column which appeared in the Clarion-Ledger, Pitts loves to pay taxes so that health horror stories like this one do not happen. The robber, a 59 year old man, had become disabled and could not work. He had no insurance, and no money. He, therefore, chose to rob a bank, get thrown in jail, and then the State of North Carolina would be compelled to pay for his treatment.
This may be one of the more stupid things I have ever heard. But Pitts loved it because it fits into his liberal-socialist view that Obamacare is the answer to all health problems. I honestly hope that James Verone, the robber, spends a lot of time in federal prison. Why? Not because he is stupid, although he is that, but there are literally hundreds of state and federal programs available to get him the treatment he needs. If he wanted to continue working, the North Carolina Department of Vocational Rehabilitation would have been happy to get him treated for his condition without it costing him a penny. Pitts bought this sob story hook, line, and sinker, and published false information to the public. If he had only done some basic research, he could have probably listed at least 25 resources that James Verone could have sought.
But research is hard work. Why should liberals do hard work when it is so much easier and a lot more fun to simply make it up. The scary thing about all of this is that liberals see James Verone as a hero when in fact he is a criminal. When you figure that one out, drop me a line.
