Every Once in a While, I Just Get This Craving

. . . for a nice fag. I mean, really: who doesn't?

Except those who are dreaming of spotted dick. Professor Purkinje's ten-year-old daughter once asked him if "dick" meant "penis." When he confirmed that it did, she asked about the spotted dick she'd seen on English menus.

"It's a sort of custard," he explained. "If you meet a boy who really has spots on his dick, you run fast in the other direction."

The next morning he woke her up and asked her what she wanted for breakfast. "Spotted dick!" she announced.

"We're fresh out of that," informed her. "How about cereal and milk?"

Kids say the darndest things, don't they?
So do the people behing the Global Warming scares. Too bad the MSM doesn't care to report their words.

From Junk Science(April Archives):

"We must reclaim the roads and the plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers, and return to wilderness tens of millions of acres of presently settled land. -- Dave Brower, Friends of the Earth founder (also attributed to David Foreman, Founder of Earth First!, in his book Ecodefense: A Field Guide to Monkey Wrenching).

"The only real good technology is no technology at all. Technology is taxation without representation by our elitist species [man] upon the rest of the natural world." -- John Shuttleworth, Friends of the Earth manual writer.

"If you ask me, it'd be a little short of disastrous for us to discover a source of clean, cheap, abundant energy because of what we would do with it. We ought to be looking for energy sources that are adequate for our needs, but that won't give us the excesses of concentrated energy with which we could do mischief to the earth or to each other." -- Amory Lovins, Rocky Mountain Institute.

"Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun." -- Paul Ehrlich, Stanford professor of biology.

Ehrlich is the very same twit who said: "Hundreds of millions of people will soon perish in smog disasters in New York and Los Angeles...the oceans will die of DDT poisoning by 1979...the U.S. life expectancy will drop to 42 years by 1980 due to cancer epidemics." -- Paul Ehrlich, 1969 in Ramparts.

Let's not forget: "We've already had too much economic growth in the United States. Economic growth like ours is the disease, not the cure."-- Paul Ehrlich, Stanford professor of biology. And: “A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development means bringing our economic system (especially patterns of consumption) into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.” -- Paul Ehrlich and Anne H. Ehrlich, “Population, Resources, Environment” (W.H. Freeman, San Francisco, 1970, 323)

The Ehrlichs are not alone, however: "The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can't let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the United States. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are." Who came up with this elitist pap? Why, none other than Michael Oppenheimer, Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton University. Name sound vaguely familiar? It should, he serves as a lead author of the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, not to mention being a leading light for Environmental Defense. Our first clash with Oppie was over an article he wrote for then Environmental Defense Fund's quarterly claiming 'global warming' would cause sea level rises of some 200 feet by the middle of the 21st Century. As far as we can tell he hasn't improved much.

UN wallahs tend to have a bit of a thing against the U.S., energy and technology: "Isn't the only hope for the planet that the industrialised civilizations collapse? Isn't it our responsibility to bring that about?" -- Maurice Strong, head of the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and Executive Officer for Reform in the Office of the Secretary General of the United Nations.

This is as good a way to get rid of them as any. -- Charles Wursta, Chief Scientist for the Environmental Defense Fund, in response to the banning of DDT ("Them" refers to "all those little brown people in poor countries.")

This is hardly a novel sentiment: William Vogt, whose 1948 book Road to Survival had an enormous impact in the United States, denounced the 'untrammelled copulation' of Indians who were 'breeding with the irresponsibility of codfish', and said that the greatest tragedy China could suffer would be 'a reduction in her death rate'. Coupled with this we had the Ehrlichs and Lester Brown riding the overpopulation bandwagon, the Club of Rome, with their 'Limits to Growth' and their panic over population and resource constraint and consequently mass media-induced fear of people with the underlying notion people must be limited because 'they' will 'kill' the world.

Regrettably the foundation of Gaia worship is hatred of people and, since DDT is one of the greatest human health aids ever invented, it is by nature "bad" by virtue of being good for people. The great 'global warming' scam and desperation to limit people through constraint of the energy supply is likely a simple extension of this collective psychosis.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
