Oh boy, Earth Day! I’m going to celebrate by turning on every light in the house for 24 hours (except the bedroom).

I don’t worship the earth . . . I worship the one true God.

This “Green” crap is for losers.

I intend to enjoy Earth Day by driving my air-conditioned van around for a few hours, grilling some red meat on my charcoal grill for my wife and six children and drinking some good wine in my air-conditioned house.

Lamh Foistenach Abu!

Perhaps the people of Japan and America’s south land have a totally different opinion of “Mother Earth.” The destruction and death resulting from natural disasters remind us that the Earth’s time is coming to an end and not a moment too soon.

Earth Day?

Time for a kerosene-driven, backyard tire fire.

Gaia can handle it. Easily.

And, therein lies the point of the ongoing “environmentalism” fraud.

Just a reminder, “Earth Day” was and is a celebration for world communism and the hero of communist Russia, Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, aka, Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, started on the 100th anniversary of his birth.

A coal-fired, endangered species barbecue would seem to be in order. Accompanied by lots of beer served in styrofoam cups and a free car wash for all attendees by bikini-clad women using phosphate soap.

I'm burning 4 rubber tires, stuffing my trash can with 75 plastic non-biodegradeable shopping bags. Lastly, I'm publicly burning a poster with Al Gore's face on it.

Ha, we start the car engines and let ‘em run too. Even open the garage door to make sure the neighbors can see those lights on as well.

Let us all celebrate Nicolai Lenin's birthday -- yeah!

And while we are at it, let us also propose a toast to the hippie, murderer of Holly Maddux who conceived of Earth Day back in Philadelphia :-|

April 22 is Earth Day. Very appropriately, and not by any means coincidentally, Earth Day is celebrated on the birthday of the socialist tyrant Vladimir Lenin.

It’s appropriate that the two are celebrated on the same day, because there is no relevant difference between the socialist and environmentalist agendas in this country. Saving the environment is simply a euphemism for eviscerating the rights of property owners and creating a dictatorship.

But you already know that; the purpose of this column is to illustrate how much of our current debate on a host of contentious issues can be explained by looking to the environmental movement.

Essentially, the insatiability of the environmentalists for restricting property rights is a powerful motivation for activists of all stripes to reject any initiative of their opponents, however reasonable.

Whatever anyone’s agenda may be, the environmentalists have taught us all that acceding to the opponent does not satisfy the beast’s hunger, but only makes the beast stronger and more dangerous.

I remember drinking out of the Milwaukee River when I was young. Let me tell you, it was not the relatively pristine waterway that it is today; it was disgusting. But if you were thirsty enough, you drank out of it anyway.

I remember when the whole city of Milwaukee smelled like filth because of the air pollution - all day, every day. Now, the government occasionally declares “Action Days.” Of course, even on the worst “Action Day,” the air is fine - infinitely better than it was every single day back in the 1970s. And if the government didn’t announce them, no one would even know that, by some Earth muffin’s arbitrary standards, the air was “unhealthy” that day.

And yet, the environmentalists will not declare victory. Instead, they have invented the myth of anthropogenic global warming. Property owners have discovered that their compromises with the environmentalists did not solve anything. Their agenda will never end, until western civilization is destroyed and we return to the Stone Age.

It is because the environmentalists’ insane agenda is so clear, and has so far been so successful, that other activists, like supporters of abortion rights and the right to bear arms, know they must employ knee-jerk reflexive opposition to any and all proposals of their opponents.

Suppose, for example, that opponents of the Second Amendment propose a restriction on gun ownership that is genuinely a reasonable one. Many supporters of the right to bear arms have to oppose it anyway, simply because they know what the real goal of their opponents is - to totally disarm the citizenry and leave it wholly at the mercy of a socialist police state.

It is the same with abortion. Many abortion rights activists don’t actually oppose any and all limitations on abortion. But they must oppose any restriction of abortion-on-demand, because they know that the ultimate goal of their opponents is criminalization of all abortions. And once they get that, their goal will be to increase the maximum prison sentences for women who get abortions. And once they get that, they’ll lobby for mandatory minimums. And so on.

These folks know, from the success of the environmentalists in eliminating property rights, that every success of their opponents will merely embolden them. Their opponents will never decide that what they’ve accomplished is good enough and go home; they will always be there, always pushing for more.

So, if you’ve ever wondered why it seems that reasonable people have lost the ability to reach reasonable compromises, look to the environmentalists for your answer. That is the lesson to be learned on Earth Day.

No coincidence Earth Day is Lenin’s birthday

Excellent post; but what makes you think they'll allow us to rape Mother Earth for her stone?
