What guilt would that be?

Tell me about it..Texas in May with 40 degrees.
If it doesn't warm up soon I'm going to be harvesting cucumbers from my seed starting table in the garage !

The AGW lemmings usually feel guilty about their lifestyle. They learned that guilt from Al Gore and his buddies.

Of course Al doesn't feel guilty about being a huge consumer of energy. He's above the little people.

Me too and I live in a state that gets more than its fair share.

I believe in global warming to some extent, man made or otherwise. I don't feel guilty about anything. I just try to limit my impact when possible. We have to take from the earth to live on it, but we can limit what we take. If we do it doesn't make us left wing gay tree hugging leftist communists. Just makes us interested in the future health of the planet and it's people. Most liberals are interested in a healthy planet and a good economy.

A lot of people have really screwy ideas. It is only when those screwy ideas cost us money that we *****. The religion of Global Warming is costing American taxpayers billions every year. If you want to have a screwy idea, by all means knock yourself out, but do not ask me or mine to pay for your religion.

There is so much one can glean from this simple statement, and it reveals the true flaw that dominates the liberal mind. "Trend-itis" .... that is the underlying disease to which all liberals suffer, ready to fully embrace any new trend that captures their imaginations, hearts and minds. Now, if this "tendency" could be kept sequestered, and reserved for subjective things like fashion and cuisine, then there is little harm in such a whimsical approach to life. However, when this trendiness delves into and disrupts foundational structures, the results can be disastrous. And this is what liberals simply cannot grasp.

This mindset is also the prerequisite for facilitating the "sucker born every minute" scenario. When traditional history and science fact can be dismissed so casually as outdated ... and replaced with new, unproven concepts, simply because they are new ... the fool is born again.

This is a sad commentary to the catch 22 reality that you simply don't know what you don't know, and if you reject the possibility that you could be wrong, you are in severe danger of being forever trapped in a perpetual state of ignorance, with no hope of becoming any smarter tomorrow than you were yesterday.

The truth is, there really are good reasons why wheels are round. That shape just works better than square ones, or oblong ones. And that truth doesn't make one a "square-phobic", just rational. But don't think that fanciful inventors haven't tried other shapes. They have, but realized the folly in such changes. That doesn't mean that certain things aren't better oblong or square .. just not good for wheels. This same concept can be applied to many things that the liberal mind confuses with being the antiquated, out of date thinking of the "greedy bitter white conservative male", when the reality is that embracing such traditional approaches to many things is simply a demonstration of the wisdom to accept the round wheel reality.

This concept is appropriately summed up in a quote from Thomas Sowell (who is not a greedy bitter old white male) when he said "much of the history of western civilization for the past three decades has been a history of replacing what worked, with what sounded good". No statement captures the true essence of liberalism than this abandonment of tried and true methods, for trendy new ideas.

Another person (?) said ... "By the time you reach your mid 20's, if you are not a liberal, you have no heart. But by the time you reach your mid 40's, if you are not a conservative, you have no brain".

Becoming even more liberal as you have gotten older, is really a bad sign. This is like looking back at yourself in the hairstyles, and donned in the trendy clothing of 1970's fashion, and still believing you looked fabulous, rather than shrieking in horror, wondering how you could have ever been convinced to wear such clownish attire.

Unfortunately, for some people, wisdom is not the inevitable outcome of advancing age.

Generous, wise, conservative male that would require far more than a sex change for you to equal.

Yesterday we got about .6 of an inch of snow. Temperatures have been hovering around freezing for two days. It's May 4th. Yeah, baby, that global warming is a booger.
