TED TURNER ... LOSING IT
NEALZ NUZE ^ | April 4, 2008 | NEAL BOORTZ

Posted on 04/04/2008 7:11:57 AM PDT by Turret Gunner A20

By now I'm sure you have heard about Ted Turner's comments on Charlie Rose the other night. He's concerned about global warming. Oh .. poor Ted. Things are just getting too hot for him, and clearly his brain is starting to cook.

Anyway ... Today Ted said that if we don't do something about global warming in about 40 years most of us will be dead and the rest of us will be living in Somalia or Sudan eating each other. He also said that there just too many people in the world.

Too many people?

OK .. we did a little math problem yesterday. We moved every single in the entire world .. every single man and woman from New York, Mexico City ... every person from every state and every continent of the world ... each and every one of them to Duvall County, Florida. To house all of these people we built two 80-story high rises on every single acre in Duvall County. OK ... I know this doesn't leave room for commercial establishes and services. We're not interested in fast food joints and such. We just want to house every single person alive today in the entire world in Duvall County. Not one living soul anywhere else. So we have two 80-story high rises on each acre. How many people will be living on each floor of each high rise? Answer? About 80.

Crowded? Perhaps so ... but not as bad as the hills above Caracas --- and all those people will be there also.

Now .. to have more fun, we just built one 100 story high rise on every acre of land that Ted Turner owns in the U.S., then we move in every single person in the entire world. That leaves room for all the infrastructure and services. How many people per floor? Around 35. Everybody has their own bedroom.

Get the point? There are not too many of us. There are just too many of us who won't hit a lick at a snake.

Perhaps this video will help clarify his even further losing it:

Apparently, global warming is going to make us cannibals in the very near future.

Right.

Ted, do us all a favor and leave the planet. It is pieces of trash like you that have expended more energy and resources than any 1000 normal people combined.

He also said that Russia, and especially China, were trying to be our FRIENDS. He is really losing it.

Yes… Ted and his buddy Al have been certifiable for at least 20 years.

Gee, the temperature has dropped since 1998... it had better get a move on if it’s going to meet its 8 degree increase quota in 30 to 40 years...

“if we don't do something about global warming in about 40 years most of us will be dead”

Yes Ted, regardless of the weather, you and AlBore will certainly be dead in 40 years....It's a good thing.

Ted’s been watching too many post-apocolytic zombie movies.

The thing that frightens me most isn’t crazy Ted himself. It’s the fact that so many others have met him over the years and still invested money in his business ventures.

Isn’t this the Ted Turner who merged Time Warner with AOL, thinking that he was going to make a mint?

Ted is understandably bitter having lost his ratings, his network, and now his mind.

We wish him well....

If ted is so worried about there being too many people in the world, why doesn’t he do the honorable thing and eliminate himself?

I have it on reliable authority that Ted Turner stays drunk most of the time. He has been known to be stoned when giving public speeches. My guess is he was plastered at the time of this interview.

He’s not that odd- there are many liberal morons who believe there are ‘too many people’ in the world.
What I can never understand is why they don’t take the power they have to DO something about it! Kill themselves, then there is one less evil human on the planet and they could start a trend!
If their own existence is so offensive to them, wouldn’t you think they would lead by example?

Too many people?

YES!

They are sitting in jail cells, or worse, psychiatric wards for the criminally insane.

Some are sitting in the Senate & other “hallowed (hollowed, maybe a better word?) chambers.

Some are sitting in NGO & “advocacy group” offices, such as Human Rights Watch, Southern Poverty Law Center, PETA, ACLU, C.A.I.R., etc.

Some are members of juntas, commisarriats, and other dictatorial ruling regimes.

Some are members of Hamas, Hezbollah, FARC, Shining Path, Elf/Alf, Tamil Tigers, MILF, and so many other terror & “liberation” groups.

And some are sitting on guest seats of TV shows, pontificating that their are “too many” people.

That's what I thought too. I heard the comments, and they were really, really lunytoons.

I interpreted them as: Give us elites total control now, or you will all die!!

As much as I’d like Ted and Al to STFU, I’m afraid that would jump-start the next ice age...

I think Ted is a dictator at heart, to say nothing of being a Communist, and wants to be like Fidel and Kim, ad nasiem.

Turner is a diagnosed victim of bipolar disorder. The other Liberals have absolutely no excuse for their strange beliefs.

“Turner is a diagnosed victim of bipolar disorder.”

I guess he was off his meds.
