Earth Day 2008

So yesterday was the day we are suppose to be worried about the environment and how “we are destroying the planet”.  I am all for having a nice place to live.  I, for example, don’t like having trash in my yard or in my neighborhood.  I want clean water to drink, fresh air to breath.  However, most of the things that Earth Day stands for is a bunch of propaganda that is not based on fact.  For example, “Global Warming”.  When Earth Day was first started in the 1970s, these Enviro-Nazis where warning about the next Global Cooling.  Now its man-made Global Warming.  Too bad that they don’t tell you that the hottest year on record was in the 1930s.  Its also too bad that they don’t tell you that since 1998, the temperate has been going down each year.  There is also no, I repeat no scientific consensus that there is man-made “Climate Change”.  And, even if there was, what step of the Scientific method is consensus?  That is not how Science is suppose to be done.  In any case, I figured I’d give my Top Ten Things I Should Have Done for Earth Day

10. Kept all of my lights on all day.
9. Went to KFC and have them serve me food in Styrofoam
8. Top off my gas tank in the middle of the day
7. Ask for plastic as I buy my groceries
6. Steal the CF light bulbs and replace them with mercury free incandescent light bulbs
5. Buy stock in “Big-Oil”
4. At the Video Store, hide all the copies of the propaganda An Inconvenient Truth
3. Print out a ton of junk e-mail
2. Tell every left-leaning person I know my Top Ten List
and
1. Visit the Hummer dealership and go on a Test Drive.

So, The Wife has posted an entry on her blog called “A Mother’s Day Wish“.  In this entry, there are 6 pictures of the husband doing various chores, etc, around the house for his wife.  At the end of her entry, Amanda wrote: “Wouldn’t this be nice???”

I’ve decided to post my response here.  If you want us to act like that, then you need to act like this:

I'm a Big Boy, Look What I Can Do!

I know that Amanda already posted this, but I really wanted to also.

Every night for a while now, I would put Mikey on the potty upstairs.  He will sit there and keep telling us “almost done”, but would never go pee-pee in the potty.  Finally, either he would tell me he was done, or I would get tired of waiting 10 or 15 minutes.  So, he would get off the potty, take off his potty seat, flush the toilet, set the lid down, and then wash his hands.  Then, into the tub he would go.  He would stand there and pee.  I would get so upset with him, although I would try not to let him know or see me upset.  Why would he not just go pee-pee in the potty?  A few nights ago, I told him that I’d give him a penny if he went pee-pee in the potty.  Every night when we’d go in the bathroom, he’d see that penny and I would remind him that if he went pee-pee in the potty, I’d give him that money.  Well tonight, he earned the penny!  That’s right, ladies and gentlemen;  Mr. Mikey Cox, has entered the world of big-boys who use the potty!  I know that this is only the start, but I am very happy and excited.

QOTM

“Americans are so gullible. They are in the process of being fed small bits of socialism and one day will awaken to find themselves living under a totalitarian order.”

Nikita Khrushchev, 1959
(he told this to Ezra Taft Benson)

Put Your Money where your mouth is!

“Rep[resentative] [John] Campbell has introduced the Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is Act, which would amend current tax forms to include a line allowing individuals to make additional contributions to the Treasury, above and beyond their actual tax obligations.” (LVRJ – 12Apr08)

I think this is a great bill!  It is not yet on Thomas, so I can’t post a link to the actual text, but if it is anything like how it sounds, I hope it passes.  Now, I don’t think it will, but it sure would be nice.  I’ve talked to many people who have said that they make enough money and don’t need a tax cut.  And it will be nice in the future to remind them that they can pay extra tax if they are so incline.
