Eco-activism is a phony ‘Religion’

Don’t say it’s not.  Because it is.  Here’s why.  Whenever a belief is spread around with little real proof, one must have faith that it is true.  No one can look into a hole and tell what is going on.  No one can tell why water taste or smells the way it does.  It out of sight, but not out of mind

Eco-activists go on phony “faith”.  They attach themselves to phony “god-like” people and hold onto their phony faith.  Yes!  It’s like a religion.

They have:

  • A ‘jesus’.  He’s Al Gore
  • ‘disciples’   They number in the thousands and can be seen on TV and in Congress.
  • ‘holy water’ in the form of marijuana.  I call it ‘Holy Hooch’.  There’s always a drug involved in phony religions.  It’s their Koolaid.
  • ‘mother mary’   in the form of any actress or actor who bothers to show up.
  • ‘mary magdalene’  in the form of whatever female or male who wants to have sex.  Sex is a very important thing when phony religions come into play.
  • ‘gospels’ written by phony disciples and kookie dope smokers.  The early Christians had scores of gospels until an emperor culled them out.   As it stands now, anti-frackers have scores of phony ‘gospels’, too.
  • ‘letters’ written by kookie people make up the foundation of this so-called religion.  The epistles are social media posts or tweets.

Here’s the reality;  Drive on U.S. 380 from Denton, Texas, to Post, Texas.   Along the way you will see drilling rigs tapping the Barnett Shale.  You will see pump jacks pumping, You will see new roads and bridges, new homes and businesses, new government building and schools.   The ranchers have new American made pickups.

The air is clear and fresh.  The night sky is clear and the stars twinkle.  The milky way is bright and beautiful.

It’s the Barnett Shale.

When I was working for an petroleum company in Fort Worth in the middle 1980’s, they were using hydraulic fracturing technology .  They only had the technology to do fracture vertically.  Now they bend the shaft and go horizontal. It was perfectly understandable to me.  I had studied geology and mineralogy at Texas A&M University.

They knew then about the enormous amount of hydrocarbons in the Barnett Shale, but did not have a way to get it out of the ground.  I went to work for another company and lost contact with the petroleum business.  I wish I hadn’t left.


Senator Says Politics Have Reached Civil War Levels | National Journal

On the Senate floor before 10 a.m. Friday, the senator gave a speech describing how American politics have reached the level at which “a small group of willful men and women who have a certain ideology”—read: the tea party and Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas—have been able to take over the congressional budget debate in the last week. “Since they can’t get their way,” Harkin said, “they’re going to create this confusion and discourse and hope that the public will be so mixed up in who is to blame for this, that they’ll blame both sides.”

This isn’t just congressional business as usual, Harkin said. It’s much, much more dire:

It’s dangerous. It’s very dangerous. I believe, Mr. President, we are at one of the most dangerous points in our history right now. Every bit as dangerous as the break-up of the Union before the Civil War.

This isn’t the first time the senator has spoken out about the spiraling budget and the fight over Obamacare. Harkin suggested Thursday that Cruz looked “foolish” for his “little tirade” that lasted from Tuesday afternoon until Wednesday morning. Harkin called out Cruz as being part of “the most extreme tea-party wing” of his party, and for his “ideology-driven obstructionism.”

COLLEGE STATION June 16, 2013 — Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel still has three years of eligibility left at Texas A&M.

You Got Yourself a GovMo Dude!

A guest on the Fox News Channel Sunday morning (May 3)  said that the United Auto Workers now own 55% of Government Motors,  once known as Generals Motors.  That means the union will effectively run the failing auto company.

The question is will the union consider the long-term viability and competitiveness of GovMo or look after the pay and pensions of it’s members?   I know the answer to that question.
Meanwhile, O-Bow-ma forced Chrysler into Chapter 11 bankruptsy.   To compound the controversy, Italian automaker Fiat appears ready to take over Chrysler.  This will give Fiat access to the marketing and dealership network inside the U.S.   Who out there will drive a boxy little Fiat?  Take a look at it!  Will Americans drive these little cars, get squashed by trucks on the freeways, and send American dollars to Italy? 
I’m certainly not going to buy a GovMo or a Fiat!
Is that the O-bow-ma economic strategy?  OMG!  We’re doomed!
