How Do You Know When Obama’s Lying?–It’s When He Opens His Mouth

August 12, 2013

By Paul Homewood




Obama has refused to approve the Keystone pipeline if it will increase greenhouse gas emissions. But, apparently, his concern about increased emissions does not extend to ferrying his dog by private helicopter to his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard.


BTW – what is it about Martha’s Vineyard and hypocritical Democrats?

    Unfortunately, he is only one of many.

    The sit on a powder-keg of discontent and anger, unaware that they could save themselves by being honest.

    The combined power of world governments are anyway losing the battle to hide the “Creator, Destroyer & Sustainer of Life”

    A typical politician’s “Don’t do as I do, do as I say”.

    I saw something on the TV the other night about RIchard Branson, and his efforts to save all sorts of sea creatures near his Carribean house (probably on his own island), and they said something about how his catamaran is one of only a few vessels in the world that is licensed to travel in a particular “protected” sea area nearby.

    I think I now have a connection that explains your observation about the rich and Martha’s VInyard. No one really likes to life in s**t (at least no one I have ever met, including some really gross guys). This is what makes environmentalism so attractive. It pushes the meme of wanting to make sure that the place/planet we live on is clean and pristine and beautiful and everything gets along with everything else – i.e., a paradise fantasy (without the virgins, dates, etc).

    I don’t know anyone who would say that this is not a desirable fantasy. But it is a fantasy, nonetheless, for most of us. Everyone has all sorts of physical needs that cannot be satisfied without messing around with some part of paradise, and making it a bit less heavenly. Even the places we live cannot be like that, because we have to have water supplied to us, and waste products taken away, to somewhere.

    The rich, however, have the resources to avoid having to confront those unpleasant places. They have staff to do stuff for them. They don’t have to worry about the messy mechanics of how things get done, because they just have to command it, and it gets done. They like this. The ones with the most compassion would love it if everyone had a bit of this experience, and the most progressive ones (with the highest levels of guilt) would like it if everyone had exactly the same opportunity to have these experiences. They therefore support resource redistribution and social justice and all the other trappings of egalitarianism.

    However, tt will be a long slog until the final goal is reached. So, in the interim they are content to salve their consciences by ensuring that THEY have exclusive access to small patches of paradise. Protected nature preserves in places that are very expensive or almost impossible to travel to are best, but small expensive islands like Martha’s Vinyard will do in a pinch for weekends and short vacations. They need to have limited access, which is why Nantucket is even more selective than Martha’s Vinyard – it is a few more miles out to sea, with even fewer tourist support facilities, but with large (i.e., expensive) rental houses that keep out the riff-raff.

    For the Kennedys, it also helps that Martha’s Vinyard was just a short (private) boat ride from Hyannisport, where their main family compound is located.

    Branson loves to have a private nature preserve available to him.

    They all think that they are doing a good thing, preserving all this nature for the day when the hoardes of unwashed either become enlightened or (more likely) just go away. They don’t want to consider the possibility that they (the rich) will have some problems when all the workers stop working for them (the rich). After all, that is a problem for tommorrow.

    Until then, they continue to try to increase the size of the future paradise, by placing more and more places off-limits to evil development. They slowly but steadily squeeze (nudge) the society to change its evil ways by constraining growth. Only sustainable growth (what an oxymoron) is permitted. Eventually, when it has been nudged enough, the masses will obey and change their ways. And that will be good, because both the masses and the earth itself will be saved, and the compassionate rich can feel good about themselves.

    It is a very famous retreat for corrupt democrat politicians.
