Have you ever wondered how all of these Democrats can drive around in their big cars, live in their huge homes and fly all around the world in private jets with no guilt? Up until now it’s been a closely guarded secret.



Hi, Billy Mays here again -this time for the one product that will allow you too, to live the energy wasting lifestyle you’ve always dreamed about, but were too eco-conscious to pursue.

Green is good and what could be more green than planting a tree, saving an endangered species’ habitat or building a windmill? Nothing! Nothing could be better. So if you’re ready to go green, then you’re doing a good thing, and doing a good thing makes you good person!

And good people know a good thing when they see one.

Introducing the Obama Carbon Offset Coins! Each coin bears the Earth-friendly face of President Barack Obama. Because they’re minted in China*, we can offer them to you at an astonishingly low price.

Each coin you purchase will help save an old growth tree, build an environmentally friendly energy source, or adopt an orphan tree.


These old growth trees are home to endangered species like the Red Cockade Woodpecker and the Spotted Owl, and deserve to be preserved.

Wind mills and solar panels are not the only way to gain energy independence but they are the greenest. For each dollar you spend on an Obama Carbon Offset Coin, a full three cents will go to one of these worth projects. Now that’s change you can believe in.

But the one that pulls at my heartstrings, and I hope your purse strings, is the Orphan Tree Fund. Millions of trees are living in desperate situations, in impoverished nations around the world. Many of these trees have never been hugged. By purchasing Obama coins, you give these neglected trees a chance to grow-up and lead productive lives, cleaning harmful CO2 from our air.

For just one Obama Carbon Offset Coin a week, you can help change the life of a deserving tree…forever. Four times a year, you will receive a picture of your tree and a report on how it’s doing. Suitable for framing, you’ll treasure your tree and feel good about yourself, because you’ll know that not only have you saved a tree, you’re saving the planet.



And if you order your Obama Carbon Offset Coins in the next twenty minutes, we’ll throw-in Transparency In Government, a life-sized poster of Vice-President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. This poster proves the Democrat Party has nothing to hide.

So you get the Obama Carbon Offset coins and a Joe and Hillary poster.

But wait there’s more!

As an added bonus, we’re going to give you a second poster. That’s right. Just for ordering in the next twenty minutes, we’ll send you -absolutely free- Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi showing that they too can wear the Emperor Obama’s New Clothes.



Get yours now!

Due to high demand, the phone lines may be busy. Dial 1-800-HUG-TREE, that’s 1-800-HUG-TREE and be prepared to wait. Getting your Obama Carbon Offset Coins are just like getting economic recovery.

*Obama Carbon Offset Coins cannot be sold to children under 16 due to the lead content.

Here are some of the hilarious, spectacularly wrong predictions made on the occasion of Earth Day 1970.

“We have about five more years at the outside to do something.” • Kenneth Watt, ecologist

“Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” • George Wald, Harvard Biologist

“We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation.” • Barry Commoner, Washington University biologist

“Man must stop pollution and conserve his resources, not merely to enhance existence but to save the race from intolerable deterioration and possible extinction.” • New York Times editorial, the day after the first Earth Day

“Population will inevitably and completely outstrip whatever small increases in food supplies we make. The death rate will increase until at least 100-200 million people per year will be starving to death during the next ten years.” • Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

“By…[1975] some experts feel that food shortages will have escalated the present level of world hunger and starvation into famines of unbelievable proportions. Other experts, more optimistic, think the ultimate food-population collision will not occur until the decade of the 1980s.” • Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation,” • Denis Hayes, chief organizer for Earth Day

“Demographers agree almost unanimously on the following grim timetable: by 1975 widespread famines will begin in India; these will spread by 1990 to include all of India, Pakistan, China and the Near East, Africa. By the year 2000, or conceivably sooner, South and Central America will exist under famine conditions….By the year 2000, thirty years from now, the entire world, with the exception of Western Europe, North America, and Australia, will be in famine.” • Peter Gunter, professor, North Texas State University

“Scientists have solid experimental and theoretical evidence to support…the following predictions: In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution…by 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half….” • Life Magazine, January 1970

“At the present rate of nitrogen buildup, it’s only a matter of time before light will be filtered out of the atmosphere and none of our land will be usable.” • Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

Stanford's Paul Ehrlich announces that the sky is falling.

Stanford's Paul Ehrlich announces that the sky is falling. “Air pollution…is certainly going to take hundreds of thousands of lives in the next few years alone.” • Paul Ehrlich, Stanford University biologist

“We are prospecting for the very last of our resources and using up the nonrenewable things many times faster than we are finding new ones.” • Martin Litton, Sierra Club director

“By the year 2000, if present trends continue, we will be using up crude oil at such a rate…that there won’t be any more crude oil. You’ll drive up to the pump and say, `Fill ‘er up, buddy,’ and he’ll say, `I am very sorry, there isn’t any.’” • Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

“Dr. S. Dillon Ripley, secretary of the Smithsonian Institute, believes that in 25 years, somewhere between 75 and 80 percent of all the species of living animals will be extinct.” • Sen. Gaylord Nelson

“The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age.” • Kenneth Watt, Ecologist

You're on the right track to avoiding a green life, and to some it seems you're doing your part to help out.

However, although you care about the earth, the main reason you do any conserving, is because it saves you money, which is more important than thinking the earth is gonna be destroyed because humans live there.

One thing I noticed is the material used for that drum stick. If those idiots loved trees so much, why is WOOD used in that stick? Seems a wee bit hypocritical to me.

Your life is pretty green - and you know a lot about how to live an eco friendly life.
So congratulate yourself for being good to the earth. And maybe think about implementing some of the ideas from this quiz!

Every answer I gave was due to frugality or common sense. I donate my used goods to places like goodwill, purchase alot of stuff secondhand, grow a garden, hang my clothes out, and turn out lights when not in a room.

this is a ridiculous poll. I did not once pick an enviromentally friendly idea because I don’t use a cloth shopping bag, pick items for their reduced packaging, or use enviromentally friendly cleaning supplies or any other tree hugging nonsense. I still got a 48 percent in their poll. Sheesh. Just living frugally is enough for them, which many have been doing for years.

INTERESTING HISTORY LESSON

Railroad tracks. This is fascinating.

Be sure to read the final paragraph; your understanding of it will depend on the earlier part of the content.

The US standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches. That’s an exceedingly odd number.

Why was that gauge used? Because that’s the way they built them in England, and English expatriates built the US railroads.

Why did the English build them like that? Because the first rail lines were built by the same people who built the pre-railroad tramways, and that’s the gauge they used.

Why did ‘they’ use that gauge? Because the people who built the tramways used the same jigs and tools that they use d for building wagons, which used that wheel spacing.

Why did the wagons have that particular odd wheel spacing? Well, if they tried to use any other spacing, the wagon wheels would break on some of the old, long distance roads in England, because that’s the spacing of the wheel ruts.

So who built those old rutted roads? Imperial Rome built the first long distance roads in Europe (and England) for their legions. The roads have been used ever since.

And the ruts in the roads? Roman war chariots formed the initial ruts, which everyone else had to match for fear of destroying their wagon wheels. Since the chariots were made for Imperial Rome, they were all alike in the matter of wheel spacing. Therefore the United States standard railroad gauge of 4 feet, 8.5 inches is derived from the original specifications for an Imperial Roman war chariot. Bureaucracies live forever.

So the next time you are handed a specification/procedure/process and wonder ‘What horse’s ass came up with it?’, you may be exactly right. Imperial Roman army chariots were made just wide enough to accommodate the rear ends of two war horses. (Two horse’s asses.) Now, the twist to the story:

When you see a Space Shuttle sitting on its launch pad, there are two big booster rockets attached to the sides of the main fuel tank. These are solid rocket boosters, or SRB’s. The SRB’s are made by Thiokol at their factory in Utah . The

engineers who designed the SRB’s would have preferred to make them a bit fatter, but the SRB’s had to be shipped by train from the factory to the launch site. The railroad line from the factory happens to run through a tunnel in the mountains, and the SRB’s had to fit through that tunnel. The tunnel is slightly wider than the railroad track, and the railroad track, as you now know, is about as wide as two horses’ behinds.

So, a major Space Shuttle design feature of what is arguably the world’s most advanced transportation system was determined over two thousand years ago by the width of a horse’s ass. And you thought being a horse’s ass wasn’t important? Ancient horse’s asses controlled almost everything... and
Today’s Horses Asses are controlling everything else.
