We – Americans – OWN the future.
First, though, we have to get there. Serious obstacles must be overcome.
I think the millennials can & will overcome these obstacles as they are the generation that truly – already – is impacted by them; the first generation in American history whose standard of living will not surpass their parent’s. They will fix the problems their parents & grandparents created because they have to, and because they’re Americans.
- Americans fix stuff
- Liberals ban stuff
- Europeans whine about stuff
- Muslims destroy stuff
It’s the way the world works.
Americans invented the modern world of manufacturing, health care, transportation, communications, computing, distribution, micro miniaturization, crop yields, energy – and, LITERALLY – everything else.
No other culture and no other nation have given the world so much.
But – those were our parents & grandparents. We Boomers have given the world nothing but arrogant strife, diminished liberties, and debt.
What separates the West from the rest?
Why did the West advance where other major religions failed? Luke 20:25. Easily the single most important verse in scripture; one allowing Christianity – uniquely – to pursue philosophy outside of religion. (The lack of acceptance of which drives the Far Right; lack of the recognition of which has driven the centuries-long fall of islam.)
Why has America been at the forefront of the modern world?
Capitalism – first invented & encouraged to end religious strife, now encouraging the use of science to improve living standards.
This columnist prattles on that emotion now has conquered science; that scientists find themselves weeping and in “pre-traumatic stress syndrome” because no one can hear their tears.
It takes a special kind of juvenile masquerading as an adult to feel (not think) that emotion belongs in science.
Where are these “scientists” clustered?
- Stanford’s Woods Institute for the Environment.
- The California Institute for Water Resources.
- The California Institute for Integral Studies.
- A former Stanford researcher “taking energy experts on wilderness retreats … to connect with themselves and nature.”
These “institutes” and individuals have two things in common: they are in that most childish of States – California; and they are of that most childish cohort humankind has thus far produced: Baby Boomer Democrats.
Who believes in AGW? Not real climate scientists:
Contrary to the impression left by the IPCC Summary reports:
§ Recent observations of phenomena such as glacial retreats, sea-level rise and the migration of temperature-sensitive species are not evidence for abnormal climate change, for none of these changes has been shown to lie outside the bounds of known natural variability…. [read the linked Open Letter]
… from over 1,000 actual climate scientists who wrote the IPCC paper – but not the government-driven summary – after which Democrats decided “climate change” was our most important national security problem – when it’s just a Marxist hoax; as the scientists note in their Open Letter, the science of the paper does NOT support the gov-written alarmist Executive Summary – which is all the media and politicians have bothered to read
Who took religion out of science? Copernicus. Galileo. Western Civilization.
Who put it back in?
Democrats with their mal-named “consensus” (an affront to science if ever there was one) religions of global warming and gun control; two driving forces of current lefties so devoid of science as to be laughable.
Look around. Who is yammering about nonexistent human effects of global climate?
In the 1970s, who was yammering about “The Coming Ice Age”?
Who is preventing – in the truly nutty idea that it exists – real attacks on “Greenhouse Gases” because they’d rather reduce your standard of living and lord it over you as kings?
(Iron dust causes plankton blooms. Plankton consume huge amounts of CO2. Every atom of iron added to the ocean removes between 10,000 and 100,000 atoms of carbon, and it’s likely that Ice Ages – serious ones with NY buried under 5,000 feet of ice – began with dry, dusty winds seeding the oceans with dust containing large amounts of iron. This prompted one scientist to note, “give me a freighter of iron dust and I’ll give you a new ice age.”)
Who is refusing to kill enemies of liberty & human freedom?
Who is trying to take your guns?
Who is trashing the Bill of Rights?
Who is destroying our Constitution with his pen & phone, to be worshipped by a media that once protected us FROM government overreach, and is not being impeached & removed for serial lawlessness and unconstitutional acts?
A Democrat president.
Who already has promised to end-run the Constitution on the 2nd Amendment?
The next Democrat president.
You want to know WHY the world is such a mess?
Because we keep voting for the everyone-gets-a-trophy, you’re-a-genius-and-don’t-need-to-listen-to-them, if-you-want-to-do-it-it’s-the-right-thing, just-let-your-emotions-hang-out “Free Speech” “Summer of Love…” Democrats.
Obama is – illegally – importing & resettling tens of thousands of non-Americans who will NEVER assimilate – which is what always has made America strong.
If you think this will have no effect on elections, culture and society – on our future freedoms and liberties – you are naive, too old to care, or fine with overturning our nation — and bloodying our streets.
Millenials fit only the “naive” category and their leaders – aren’t
But Democrats are going along with him.
Because Democrats hate Western Civilization, too (and will be replaying Joni Mitchell until they die), and because establishment Republicans are too polite (stupid) to complain that their nation & birthright are being destroyed.
People planning to live and raise families in the aftermath of the Locust Generation Democrats AND REPUBLICANS had better get on the stick, recognize the catastrophe this cohort has visited on America and the world – and NEVER ELECT OR RE-ELECT ANOTHER BABY BOOMER DEMOCRAT TO ANY OFFICE WHATSOEVER.
And if you still believe science (NOT the “science” of govt grant-funded papers) supports either AGW or gun control – it’s seriously time to pay more attention, get your ideology out of they way, and open your brain.
