Paul McCartney: "I like Obama... and hes right to have a go at us for polluting his Country"
The Sun UK ^ | June 24, 2010 | JACQUI SWIFT

Posted on 06/24/2010 9:48:24 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia

THE shocking images of oil-covered wildlife and ruined beaches across the Gulf of Mexico have horrified millions.

But passionate green campaigner Sir Paul McCartney believes the environmental disaster may have a silver lining, with the search for clean, renewable energy now being pushed forward.

The Beatles legend said: "Sadly we need disasters like this to show people. Some people don't believe in climate warming - like those who don't believe there was a Holocaust.

"But the facts indicate that there's something going on and we've got to be aware of it if we want our kids to inherit a decent world, not a complete nightmare of a planet - clean, renewable energy is for starters."

And, Mr. Beatle, some people don’t believe in global cooling, like some don’t believe in a Holocaust. There!

Someone tell Sir Paul that’s it’s his environmental whackoism that caused BP to have to drill so far out and so deep that’s caused all these problems.

Nevermind. He should just shut up and sing.

C’mon folks, poor Paul seems to think we Americans see our Prez like Brits see their Queen. Sir Paul thinks elected officials have dictatorial rights. Sir Paul’s portfolio is probably sans BP as of a few months ago, so he bears no loss from his speach.

Its hard to imagine living a life in which one wakes up dumber than the previous day, and even more difficult to understand how he has managed to live this long with his perpetual ignorance.

Sir Paul, you can prepare to face a blacklist like you never saw before. When John Lennon said the Beatles were bigger than Jesus (and that Jesus' fame and influence would one day wane) you guys claimed it was all taken out of context. Not even a decade later he was pleading in song for us to picture a world with no god at all, no heaven or hell, people living for today...

Screw you, ya billion dollar lunkhead.

Turns out Pete Best was the nice one and look what it got 'im.

Remember Sir Paul’s instant jingoistic patriotism after 9-11? Gone. My guess is that he daily smokes himself to 9-10 in billowing clouds of burning hemp.

And he wears a shitty toupee.

If that one statement doesn't conclusively prove that prolonged pot smoking destroys one's mental faculties, nothing will.

“his country”?

I don’t think so.

It’s OUR country, not Obambi’s.

At least it used to be.

Lennon wanted to dose Richard Nixon with a massive dose of LSD. He was no “better” Beatle. He was rightfully refused entry into this country. He was a tax avoider anyway, why do you think the Beatles wanted out of England?

He’s meaning Obama’s rebuke of BP. I wonder if he supports Obama nationalizing BP’s assets and shifting them to US assets.

Lennon was the better Beatle.

My daughter gave me his 800+ page bio for Christmas. It was a heckuva read. Although he was by far my favorite Beatle, I never put him up on a pedestal. I learned long ago to pay little or no attention to pronouncements of my favorite musicians.
