We're Boned!
By Ernest Stewart

Well, we're boned! ~~~ Bender
Yeah, we're boned! ~~~ Leela
~~~ Futurama ~~~

It's like the old question, "Which came first the chicken or the egg?" The answer is obvious; just like the question that's been running through my mind of late: "Who is stupider? The climate-denying politicians or the morons that keep electing them?"

There are currently five major fires burning in California -- with another five that've been brought under control or are thought to be out. Just one of them, viz., "The King Fire" has already burnt to the ground some 90,000 acres. To put this in perspective, that means the fire is now larger than the cities of Atlanta, Las Vegas, Philadelphia and Portland!

The UN has declared that the 2014 summer was the hottest summer on record -- not so much in my neighborhood, at least in July; but on average, it just keeps getting worse year after year. I might mention currently we're at the beginning of an "Indian Summer" that promises to make up for July! Meanwhile, at the UN, Barry gave a speech on climate change, and it was, as Shakespeare once said, "...a tale, told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. Barry talks a good game; but his rhetoric and his actions are two different things.

Back in our most populous state, throughout the entire central Californian valleys, wells are going dry at an alarming rate. Not only can't the folks wash themselves or their clothes or use flush toilets or even have water to drink, but they can't grow the crops that we rely upon to live. Couple that with the current GMO crop failures, and soon we won't even have poison to eat!

A conservative estimate of the NYC climate march puts the figures of around 400,000 people coming from all over America to protest the political inaction on global warming. A smaller group carried the protest to Wall Street, where hundreds were arrested by New York City's "finest" for daring to protest in front of the people who are causing global warming, the same ones who've bought and paid for said "finest" to protect them from their victims. Beyond the NYC gestapo, to see what we're up against, watch the Jon Stewart video above and see if you're not reacting along with Jon the same way that he is. Reacting about The House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. I think you'll agree that we are sooooooo screwed, America, with these Bozos in power. While I have no doubt that some of these wastes-of-space actually believe what they are saying, I think as Jon did, to understand it, just check out the folks who've bought and paid for this crew to see why even those who actually have a working brain would say what they've said. It's like with everything else in Foggy Bottom. If you want to know why things are done, don't listen for a nano-second to the Bullsh*t rhetoric spewing out of their cake holes; no, just follow the money trail; and it will become crystal clear to you in a heartbeat.

As to the above two questions, # 1.) the egg came first, what laid it wasn't quite a chicken, but what hatched out of the egg was. # 2.) The people who elect these morons are far dumber than the politicians that they elect -- who certainly aren't the brightest bulbs in the pack to begin with! So, if by some disaster, the Rethuglicans pick up the Senate and retain their control over The House, America, we are sooooooo boned!

Thanks for the film!


We get by with a little help from our friends!
So please help us if you can...?


So how do you like Bush Lite so far?
And more importantly, what are you planning on doing about it?

Until the next time, Peace!
