Leftwing Madness

Published by at 8:48 am under All General Discussions

Yes, the title is from the Department of Redundancy Department. Nope, this is not going to be a post about the foaming-at-the-mouth, rabid left wing protesters – though it is good to see O’Reilly giving air time to these nut jobs. Exposing the true darkness that infests the left is always a good thing – just like it is for the far right with skin heads and the KKK.

No, this is a post about incoherent and mad left wing policies. The product of the ‘moderate’ element of the mad left.

We all know the left is obsessed with telling us how to live our lives; from eating to smoking to drinking (as if to cry out for help with their own bad habits). We are regaled by how dangerous second hand smoke is to anyone within 25 feet in open air (especially around airport terminals crammed with cars and diesel buses going by!). Left wing nosy bodies are even now attempting to pass laws against smoking in your own house and car.

And what about First Nag Michele’s war on fast food? Supposedly we are killing our children by allowing MacDonalds to exist. There is now a war going on against Happy Meal toys, vending machines and home made lunches. There is no limit to the danger we lousy parents expose our kids when we let them eat.

So where do these paragons of virtue get off requiring us to place cancer causing, deadly light products all through our houses?

Energy saving light bulbs ‘contain cancer causing chemicals’

Fears have been reignited about the safety of energy saving light bulbs after a group of scientists warned that they contain cancer causing chemicals.

Their report advises that the bulbs should not be left on for extended periods, particularly near someone’s head, as they emit poisonous materials when switched on.

So second hand smoke and french fries are evil, but cancer-causing, chemical-packed light bulbs which require an EPA SWAT team to clean up if they break are mandatory next to your child’s bed?

Incoherent madness. No wonder these people hate Main Street America – it makes them look so damn stupid.

Update: Meant to add this link to even more horror stories about the CFL bulb, now required near a baby’s crib near you.

    It is deliciously satisfying when one leftist social engineering dictat runs afoul of another. Watching the desperate attempts at revision and the resultant explosion of liberal heads is sweet beyond measure.

    NLRB to Boeing – build 787 in union state or we sue

    The story at the above link shows just how out of control Obama’s Labor Department has become.

    Instead of oversight they have now been turned on their head and become pro union advocates.

    Not unexpected considering who they have staffed it with.

    White House May Try to Limit Speech Through Executive Order

    Amazing, but typical. The EPA is attempting to impose limits on greenhouse gas emissions despite clear opposition from Congress, the NLRB is busy enacting all sorts of pro-union provisions that could never pass congressional muster, and the President just issued a signing statement on White House “czars” proclaiming his intention of ignoring congressional appropriations. (Hugh Hewitt examines the trend in his latest column, “Liberals’ impatience with democracy, rule of law is growing.”)

    The DISCLOSE Act was an ugly attempt to limit political speech based on who was expressing that speech. (Earlier Shopfloor posts.) The legislation failed in Congress last year. For the sake of the First Amendment, it should stay dead.

    I am sitting here amazed, watching commodity prices soar while everyone official pretends that it isn’t happening.

    Bernanke claims there’s no inflation – and yet the prices of gold, silver, oil, corn, wheat and most other commodities are soaring as the dollar’s value collapses.

    This isn’t an accident – this is the direct result of left wing financial policies.

    Everything I see tells me that we are going to see $6.00/gallon gasoline by midsummer.

    Will this break the economy and send us back into recession? Absolutely.

    Is there anything that can be done to avoid this?

    Sadly, No. It is already Too Late.

    And listen to economists when they talk – you will hear this repeatedly: “high oil prices will be cured by demand destruction, and this should happen by the end of the year.”

    Translated out of econo-speak, this means that oil will rise until the economy collapses, after which it will fall along with the economy. There really is no chance anymore of this not happening this year.

    So why are stocks going up? Because of the belief that when the collapse happens, the Fed will respond by pumping out even MORE trillions of dollars, and stocks and commodity prices will continue to soar. Those trillions we’re printing have to go somewhere.

    Ever wonder what it was like to live in Weimar Germany, when hyperinflation destroyed the country? We’re all about to find out.

    They didn’t really think it would happen until it was too late to stop, either.

    My wife thought I was nuts when I went to walmart and bought a couple of sack fulls of incandesants and replaced all the Mercury filled curly ques with them.

    I explained;
    The Enrich GE, thus liberals, bulbs were hazardous to my eyesight as I couldn’t see with six of the dang things on.

    They are hazzardous to our health as they contain far more mercury than a salmon the libs are so fond of screeching over and require a hazmat team should one break.

    They save no energy as it requires twice as many and still can’t see.

    I refuse to be dictated to by a bunch of weed smokin, God hating, Government growing, leftwing corporatists and communists.

    Every trip to walmart finds me stocking up on incandesants until I can no longer buy them.
    Gold, Silver, titanium?

    I’ll get rich selling light bulbs on Ebay unless Useless Himself bans Ebay!

    So liberalism causes cancer? I’ll laugh if there is a study that comes out which says riding hi-speed trains increases the risk of stroke or too little carbon dioxide in the air causes brain damage.
