Inauguration: It's not easy being green

23 posts in this topic

Wow ... everyone jumped to the conclusion that I was saying they ought not hold the inauguration, or they should tell people to stay home, or that I hate Obama. You also made the assumption that the organization that wrote the report was saying that, too ... they're not. Follow the link.

Funny how all of you managed to do that ... make assumptions about what I think about it. I purposefully didn't make comment (I did make the mistake of not crediting the actual writer, but Cookin ... I promise, I don't need your approval to know how good I am) ....

What I think about it is simply that folks who preach to the rest of the world about these issues should look at themselves first. The inauguration, especially this one, is a huge, historic event and I wish everybody could/would go.

What IFL says (for those who don't bother to follow the link), and I agree:

The IFL makes no criticism of these activities and welcomes the potential and much needed economic stimulus that the Inauguration will provide.. In the same vein, Americans and U.S. businesses should have the liberty to pursue the daily activities they need to thrive and prosper.

Moreover, they should not have to be lectured -- or regulated or taxed -- by officials who appear, at best, to conveniently forget their own rhetoric when celebrating their success.

Energy use and economic growth go hand in hand and any radical environmental policies to regulate greenhouse gases will likely dampen any efforts to jumpstart the U.S. economy.

Instead of pursuing punitive policies that will hamper economic output and make energy more expensive for U.S. consumers and small businesses, President-elect Obama should swiftly undertake steps that improve America’s energy security and increase economic vitality.

I already know you hate Obama. I also know that I have never seen you post any messages concerning global warming concerns tied to any other specific event.

Your message is not about environmental awareness, it's about the fact that you can't stand what's about to happen and you want to find something to prove "hypocrisy".

The facts are that a lot of the people who will be at the inauguration would have still been driving, flying, or whatever...just somewhere else.

There is no doubt that whatever the impact, this Administration has certainly tried the hardest to lower the impact - and of course, they will, once sworn in, do a lot more to get us greener.

You can continue to argue this point until the entire Administration sleeps in their offices at the White House, Obama rides a bike to visit Germany, and on and on. The fact is that your wonderful source argues that we should drop efforts to make the world cleaner for the sole purpose of making a few more bucks now. It's the typical response of the people who think that Al Gore is somehow leading a secret conspirancy to ruin the Western World, veiled as an almost reasonable commentary.

You are one of the 15% who think that Sigmund and his brothers Burp & Slurp are cooler than H.R. Pufnstuf and his sidekick Jimmy.

Fightin' woids.

You are one of the 15 percent who don't realize that the Cardinals, in fact, ate the Panthers, and not the other way around.

Just 'cause I don't love him doesn't mean I hate him .... you know absolutely nothing about me, yet you continue to try to put words in my mouth and profess you know what I'm thinking.

Do you not want the man you worship to walk the walk instead of just talking the talk? I'm not even asking that he do that. I'm just asking that he and his supporters not denigrate those they feel are not doing as they say (but obviously not as they do).

Just the fact that you think that anyone "worships" Obama to the point where you have to keep using words like that says more about your feelings about Obama than what you are actually trying to convey.

If you want to "ask"....well then ask yourself. Don't rely on some goofballs trying to prove their own weak points to prove yours.

You proved you didn't actually read the report at all ... or my response regarding the report. You're not really worth the time I'm taking on you.

If you think nobody worships Obama, then you haven't been paying attention.

You specifically referred to me. And I have not seen any Obama churches being constructed around here at least.

Don't need churches (or tabernacles or mosques) to worship.
