wine is a necessity of life for me.
~ Thomas Jefferson
do politicians believe they can push the global-warming
scam? We know, after his inauguration, Barack Obama intends
to officially classify carbon dioxide as a "dangerous
pollutant." After such a declaration, his actions
will reveal whether he truly views carbon dioxide as a threat
to humanity or whether he is simply using a shameless scare
tactic to further consolidate Federal power and to move the
U.S. further along the road
to socialism. If carbon dioxide is incredibly dangerous
as Al Gore and Barack Obama claim it to be, then all options,
for reducing carbon dioxide emissions, must be considered.
President Obama declares carbon dioxide to be a dangerous
pollutant, every single American brewery, winery, and distillery
will be, by definition, a "dangerous polluter."
Thus, if manmade carbon dioxide output must be drastically
reduced to save the planet and humanity itself, then President
Obama must strongly consider reinstating alcohol prohibition
in these United States. Al Gore, to date, hasn’t had the guts
to push the global-warming scam to the point of suggesting
global alcohol prohibition and I highly doubt President Obama
has the guts to do so in the U.S. Both of these political
hacks, after all, are socialists and certainly are not in
love with Mother Earth and humanity, but with power and celebrity.
with a fifth-grade education understands that the fermentation
process is integral to producing alcoholic beverages. In the
fermentation process, yeast interacts with sugars to create
ethyl alcohol and carbon dioxide. Uh oh, there is that evil
"pollutant" carbon dioxide. Who would have ever
guessed the wonderful wines, beers, and distilled spirits
we enjoy so much are born from pollution? Come to think of
it, the beers
and champagnes populating store shelves everywhere still contain
carbon dioxide. By Barack Obama’s definition, I would be drinking
a dangerous pollutant every time I enjoy one of my favorite
ales. Should I consult a doctor before drinking pollution?
Even if prohibition prevents me from drinking polluted adult
beverages, in the future, what about soda pops and naturally-carbonated
sparkling waters? Should these polluted beverages be banned
as well? Perhaps President Obama will provide us with some
guidelines about ingesting pollution.
Obama (and Al Gore for that matter) sincerely believes carbon
dioxide poses such a dire threat to Mother Earth and humanity,
then the carbon dioxide emissions from breweries, wineries,
and distilleries would be viewed as a serious problem. In
the United States alone, annual wine production is about 2.44
billion liters while annual beer production is approximately
liters. Throw in distilled
spirits and it is inescapable to conclude that a whole
lot of manmade carbon dioxide is being generated by wineries,
breweries and distilleries. Once President Obama pronounces
carbon dioxide to be a dangerous pollutant, what will he do
about the "pollution" emanating from breweries,
wineries, and distilleries?
thing President Obama should do is to lead by example and
ban all alcoholic beverages from the White House (Al Gore
should do the same in his household). Secondly, he and Al
Gore should create a national awareness as to the polluting
nature of the adult-beverage industry with the objective of
building a consensus to bring back prohibition in order to
save our planet and the human race. These two shrill politicians
have asserted that the stakes are quite literally this supremely
high, hence foregoing alcoholic beverages is a sacrifice all
Americans should be prepared to make. For goodness’ sake,
our planet is at stake!
take Barack Obama’s absurd assertion, that carbon dioxide
is a dangerous pollutant, one step further. By using Obama’s
"logic," life itself is built upon pollution.
It makes me wonder, once again, if our new President is smarter
than a fifth grader. For if one is familiar with photosynthesis
– and most fifth graders are – it is a process of converting
light energy to chemical energy and storing it in the bonds
of sugar. Plants only need light energy, carbon dioxide
and water to make the aforementioned sugar. Photosynthesis,
which cannot take place without carbon dioxide, occurs in
plants (and a few bacteria) and is responsible for feeding
nearly all life on Earth. But let’s not stop there. Another
vital function photosynthesis performs pertains to generating
the very oxygen which oxygen-breathing animals require for
survival. So let’s get this straight Mr. Obama, you believe
the life-giving process of photosynthesis is built upon pollution?
If this is your firm conviction, then you have left me wondering
if enough oxygen is making it to your brain. Yet what I do
know now is that the gospel, according to Barack Obama, avows
that life itself is dependent upon pollution. How utterly
Obama, Al Gore, and politicians around the world are using
global warming, and the outrageous lie that carbon dioxide
is a pollutant, to increase state power and, thereby, reduce
human liberty. It is an incredibly powerful scam which is
frightening people into willingly giving up their freedoms
in exchange for "saving" the planet. Therefore,
step by step, country by country, the global-warming scare
is helping politicians pave the road to socialism.
don’t we hear American, British, French, German and other
politicians calling for the shuttering of breweries, distilleries,
and wineries (or at least taxing their products into oblivion)?
It is the same reason you will never hear an American politician
call for a $100/hour minimum wage or for sending every adult
American a $1,000,000 stimulus check. Taking a scam too far
leads to intense examination and exposes the scammers for
the frauds they are. Hence, gunning after wine, beer, and
spirits makers would undoubtedly create such a backlash, against
the global-warming charlatans, that the scam wouldn’t hold
up under such mass scrutiny. After all, if you are compelling
people to give up alcohol – to help save the planet – then
the science had better be extremely sound. Questionable science,
built upon faulty computer models, simply won’t cut it.
Obama, using parts of FDR’s playbook, attempts to lead us
further down the road to socialism, be assured global warming
will be used as a weapon to mentally terrorize Americans into
further exchanging liberty for "safety." It is a
near-certainty, nonetheless, that breweries, distilleries,
and wineries will not be deemed "dangerous polluters"
in spite of the fact carbon dioxide is a byproduct of fermentation.
To be sure, this will expose the hypocrisy of politicians,
such as Obama. And, it will also reveal the grandiose concept,
of saving the Earth from global warming, is nothing more than
a ruse designed to help governments grab more power.
George Reisman’s phenomenal book Capitalism,
he describes why socialists such as Al Gore, Barrack Obama,
and for that matter Arnold Schwarzenegger (who has turned
out to be a greenie) will leave adult-beverage makers alone
– in spite of their prodigious carbon dioxide emissions:
follows that the rulers of a socialist state must live in
terror of the people. By the logic of their actions and
their teachings, the boiling seething resentment of the
people should well up and swallow them in an orgy of bloody
vengeance. The rulers sense this, even if they do not admit
it openly; and thus their major concern is always to keep
the lid on the citizenry.
Barrack Obama’s mind may be polluted with contradictions and
megalomania, but he and his ilk are savvy enough to have learned
the lessons from America’s failed experiment with alcohol
prohibition (combined with the fact that anthropogenic global
warming is supported by flimsy science). Accordingly, it is
much easier to keep the lid on a citizenry permitted to legally
self-medicate with alcohol – especially during the present
economic depression – than to draw the ire of citizens forced
to seek adult beverages on the black market.
your glass of wine and say "cheers" to Barack Obama:
our new Hypocrite-in-Chief.
