If You Really Thought “Thing A” Was Bad Would You Contribute to “Thing A”?


I see this all the time.  People scream that we need to conserve our resources.  That we need to “Go Green”.  That we need to pass massive legislation that forces us to use less energy.

Then they go and not conserve our resources, they don’t go green and use a TON of energy.

And this by the very people that we use as our spokesmen for the cause:

What kind of U.N. environmental ambassador builds a 20,000 square-foot home with a six-car garage, an elevator and a lagoon? Why, that would be the Hub’s favorite Pats fan, Gisele Bundchen!

Jeez.

The Left just is brimming with outrage over the abuses of the rich.  And then, when given the chance to reign in their ow excesses..well, quite simply, they don’t.

What they DO, however, is build 20,000 square foot homes filled with every imaginable luxury.

The Home of the UN Ambassador for the Environment

Don’t get me wrong.  I think that the Brady’s can buy whatever they want with their money.  I just think that I should be able to do the same.

    Pino: This is not a woman I’ve ever heard of, and I loathe that kind of excess. How is she the ‘left’??

      Because the Right doesn’t have “U.N. environmental ambassador”.

      • Moe said:

        That’s absolutely correct – the right doesn’t do environmental stuff and the right doesn’t do the UN – and Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower be damned!

        Anyway, you forced me to use teh google. Did you know she’s Brazilian? She served for six months (maybe the UN wasn’t too crazy about her activities after all). The new environmental goodwill ambassador is an Indian soccer player.

        We’re EVERYWHERE!!!

        Tomorrow’s news today:

        Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, have added a Montecito-area property to their real estate holdings, reports the Montecito Journal.

        The couple spent $8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

        Saw that. Hate it too. That doesn’t mean I don’t agree with Gore’s message; it means I think his message would resonate a lot better if he lived a little smaller.

        Of course, we dont know if that’s hypocricy or financial planning . . .

        I think that even HE doesn’t believe his message.

  2. Moe said:

    Oh, he believes it. He has – and I beleive this – has dedicated his life to educating us about the danger.

    And as for believing Pino, in spite of the tempest in the Cambridge teapot and the 1.5% of the world scientific community that doesn’t believe it, I’ll go with NASA, NOAA and The Pentagon. They’ve proved pretty reliable.

    I just noticed I don’t have you on my blogroll. Fixing that right now!

      Tip ‘o the hat 😉
