Skip to comments.Just in time for Independence Day, the Left is coming for our barbecue grills
Posted on 07/04/2015 6:08:03 AM PDT by Marcus
On this Independence Day, one of the sadder aspects of American life we have to consider is the tendency of some Americans to wag their fingers at others about the way they choose to live, sometimes with disastrous results. The temperance movement of the 19th Century led to Prohibition which led to Al Capone, for example. Now someone writing in the New Republic on Friday wants to take away our right to barbecue.

No fireworks on base this year. Oh there are legit reasons all coincidental
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
They can have my grill when they pry it from my cold, dead, barbecue sauce-stained finger.
I burn my garbage.
Don’t forget about that second hand smoke either. It shouldn’t be long before the surgeon general hops on this bandwagon.
Government hacks come out with their dire warnings about “lone wolf terrorists,” while media hacks warn about fireworks (especially the dreaded sparklers) and grilled meat and sunburn and sharks! This is the Left’s War on Independence Day, because they don’t want us to remember what this day celebrates. It’s becoming Warnings for Wusses Day.
By taxing or fining you and me. The politicians have finally realized that no matter how much they tax us or fine, if they add another tax or fine, we will pay it. We will gladly pat it in hopes to be allowed another day. As we pay the tax or fine, we hope that it will be the last time and they will leave us in peace to live and let live.
This is the same cat and mouse game the National Socialists in Germany played with the Jews in Germany and Poland after they over ran Poland. They fined the Jews, the Jews paid the fine. Next time, they increased the fine, the Jews paid it . This cycle continued until the Jews ran out of money. At that time, the Jews were rounded up for extermination because by the time came that the Jews ran out of money, the National Socialists had built the camps that they did not previously have to hold them.
That is my answer to your study question.
The red coals are coming! The red coals are coming!
I am convinced that finger-wagging-whiney-arse liberals gain most of their pleasure by denying others theirs.
As to the hazards of 2nd hand smoke... this sad story from the ‘Net! Happy 4th!
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.
~ C.S. Lewis
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1: Atmosphere has just 0.04% CO2 in it
2: Man creates just 3.4% of that 0.04% (The rest is natural)
3: Therefore, the atmosphere has just 0.00137% CO2 produced by man (3.4% of 0.04% = 0.00137%)
4: The silly idea that 0.00137% CO2 in the atmosphere can cause ANY change to our climate globally is LAUGHABLE!
Study Question: How can 0.00137% of our atmosphere possibly capture enough escaping heat, and then back radiate a fraction of that, in large enough quantities, towards earth, to cause climate change?
Bonus Points: IF CO2 causes climate change, then hy is it that CO2 ONLY rises AFTER many decades of climate change?
Bonus Question 2: IF CO2 causes climate change, why has there been ZERO climate change for 2 decades now despite more CO2 I nthe atmosphere each successive year during those 2 decades?
Bonus Question 3: Why are ‘man-caused climate change’ LIARS allowed to open their LYING mouths in public?
Bonus FACT: ‘man-caused climate change’ LIARS claim we are reaching record high ppm of CO2 In the atmosphere because of man, and that it ‘can’t possibly get that high naturally- therefore man is to blame’- yet these LIARS ignore their own findings that show that ppm were much higher thousands of years ago (if you believe in long earth ages)
Liberals wouldn’t hate barbecues so much if they were used primarily to roast vegetables.
Supreme court ruling imminent. No right to barbeque grill likely to be found so they must be illegal.
One more thing to stock pile along with ammo guns light bulbs etc.
This experiment shuts up the rising sea level types. Leaves them stunned.
Yes, I believe the, First School Lunch Lady weighed in on this imploring us to grill vegetables instead of meat.
But it’s no problem if communists get together on the 4th of July to “celebrate” the American Revolution over a BBQ.
