Earth Day Rebellion

Last night my daughter recounted an event that happened in her classroom.

Yesterday was  Earth Day, a silly memorial observed by the media and people who need to feel guilt.  I am only aware that it was because of the news cycle.

The teacher, a substitute, was attempting to involve the children in a discussion about what hurts and what helps our environment.  She wrote two columns on the board with the headings ‘HURT’ and ‘HELP.’  The children volunteered information on the topic and the teacher wrote each suggestion under the appropriate title.

The last entry in the ‘HURT’ column was “global warming” which the teacher circled to highlight it’s superior importence.

My daughter said, “But, global warming is a myth.”

Immediately one child said, “No it isn’t!”  Another child said, “That’s not true!”  Then one child said, “I’m with you, Veronica!”

The teacher wheeled around and said, “Stop!  Who said it’s a myth?”  Most of the children pointed at Veronica.

The teacher said, “That is one of the most wrong things I have ever heard.”  To which my daughter responded, “Did you see the amount of snow we got this winter?”  A different child than the one that said she ‘was with my daughter’ said, “Exactly, Veronica.”

The teacher went on to prove her point by citing, “The polar ice caps are melting, that is not an accident.”  She then went on with more drivel fed to her by her superior intellect and the American-engine of the world-crushing group-think of Al Gore.

When my daughter told my husband about the incident, he high-fived her and when she told me, I told her how proud of her I am.

Global sea ice is back to the levels it was thirty years ago.

America, The Christian Nation

A lot of talk has been started about Obama’s speech during Holy Week of the idea that America is not a Christian nation. While in Turkey, a Muslim country, Obama said the following:

“One of the great strengths of the United States is, ahhh.. although as I have mentioned, ah.. we have a very large Christian population, we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation, ahh.. we consider ourselves ahhh.. a nation of citizens who are ahh.. bound by ideals and  a set of values.”

Hm.  If we are not a Christian nation, then why does this administration, in it’s policies and campaign, use Christian guilt against us.

It is true our nation was built by the  philosophies espoused by the founding fathers, most of which were Christian.  However, using the idea that we should, through taxation, take from the haves, and give to the have-nots, is bogus.

As a nation of citizens, we are to do with our earned assests what we wish to do.  If you wish to give to those less fortunate, then by all means, do so.  There are churches, charities and personal ways of doing this noble deed.

But when the government of any nation forces any man to give to others for the “common good” it is using a bastardized version of what our God compels us to do.  At the same time, Obama and his party uses our tax dollars to promote and afford abortion for not only our nation of citizens, but for the citizens of other nations, and cutting funding for the defense of our great nation.

Project P.U.M.A. (Personal Urban Mobility and Accessibility) prototype is shown in Brooklyn April 4. GM and Segway say the vehicle could allow people to travel around cities more quickly, safely, quietly and cleanly, and at a lower total cost. (Wall Street Journal Tuesday April 7, 2009)

Careful, if you kick the tires, they could fall off.

Here, get a real good look.

The machine, which GM says it aims to develop by 2012, would run on batteries and use wireless technology to avoid traffic backups and navigate cities. (Wall Street Journal)

Yes, but can it do this?

or this?

How about this?

No?

Then I’ll pass.
