What if Boxer Shrugged?

April 16, 2008 by

Like Atlas holding the sky on his shoulders, our federal representatives hold the weight of the Earth and our future on theirs — an awesome and sobering responsibility.

Imagine for a moment that you are Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., chairwoman of the Senate Energy and Environment Committee. In your omniscience, you recognize that “Bush’s new climate strategy (is) ‘worse than doing nothing … the height of irresponsibility.’” That is to say, you recognize that socialization of the means of production must happen now; we cannot afford a stroll down the meandering path of Bush’s enlightened Fascism.

The end — our end — is near unless you act, and act now. How could you possibly sleep? Or, for that matter, find time to fund raise, etc? Oh, the responsibilities of the selfless public servant.

My personal experience and gut instict leads me to believe that Barbara Boxer hasn’t missed a wink.

Let Boxer do what she will. I see signs that God is resisting the proud.

1. The equations that predict Global Warming in computer simulations are WRONG. http://www.dailytech.com/Researcher+Basic+Greenhouse+Equations+Totally+Wrong/article10973.htm

2. We have had global cooling since 1998.

3. We may be entering a mini-ice age because of the “Maunder Minimum”

Thank’s for the comments with regard to Sen. Barbara Boxer, but will take care of the Bitch ourselves.

(I keep checking the “Remember personal Info?” in the vain hope that, one day, it will)

Having lived in California when Boxer was first, and next, elected as senator, I can say with complete confidence that I have rarely seen a less intelligent, more easily controlled individual in my life. She’s an idiot, parroting whatever she is told to parrot by her handlers (whoever they are).

So it won’t be Boxer shrugging, it will be whoever told her to shrug. The greatest likelyhood is that, one day, someone is going to forget to tell her to breath. Good riddance.

Though I have seen evidence proving such claims Steven, however supporting your points with a non-scholarly reviewed source does tax the credibility. Blog evidence should not reference another blog.

C. Conrad,

Those blog articles (they seem to be full fledge magazine articles to me) DO have links to scholarly articles for those interested.
