From Glenn Reynolds Insta pundit and the Atlantic we find this little gem.
Let’s see. They’ve made us hysterical about lead poisoning, mercury in fish, skin cancer, second hand smoke, obesity, sugar, salt ad infinitum. Just having these things present on earth is a death sentence, right? However we are supposed to ignore the mercury in the new light bulbs, because that’s “green technology”. What other green technology is waiting to kill us? What about the radiation from medical tests, TSA scanners, cash register scanners, TV’s, Microwaves and Coffee machines.
Ok that last one was just silly, but really, how do they (being the ones in charge and so much smarter than the average pic-a-nic basket) know what is slowly killing us and if they do what should they do? How many of you out there are willing to give up light bulbs, microwaves, TV’s and Cell Phones? Does it depend on how fast it’s killing you or if it’s killing just you or your children or family pet.
I personally believe that the powers that be are sure nuclear Armageddon is on it’s way. Once Israel is attacked all bets are off. I have no
heart burn with this. I would welcome a glass parking lot stretching form the Black Sea to the Indian Ocean. The Fertile Crescent has brought us nothing but violent, intolerant, jihad since the beginning of time and yes as someone with a degree in History I do know the “importance” of the area, but like Europe, all the folks that could play well with others moved on long ago. I’m personally not all that sure that humanity is worth saving and whether their are any human beings in that area of the world is at question as well. Do human beings kill innocents for money, land, power or religious fervor? Do they use children and women and the elderly as human targets, or bargaining chips? Animals do, but human beings, creations of an Eternal Intelligence should not.
I wonder how many times God (the Father) has said to himself, “but it was such a good idea. It worked out really well on paper.” Note to self, not everything that looks good on paper translates.
