Your Marxist Morons of the day are

The City Council of Concord, Taxachusetts! Thanks to William Teach for the story

I heard this one on the news yesterday or Wednesday, but, had completely forgotten about it during my morning news perusal. Fortunately,Tom Nelson is there to point the way

(Globe and Mail) Concord, Mass., has banned the sale of single-serving plastic water bottles, the Boston Herald reportsThe bylaw, posted on the Town of Concord’s website, states: “It shall be unlawful to sell non-sparkling, unflavored drinking water in single-serving polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles of 1 litre (34 ounces) or less in the Town of Concord on or after Jan. 1, 2013.”

Violators face up to a $50 (U.S.) fine, with Concord’s Health Division responsible for enforcing the ban.

What makes this REALLY stupid is that the ban apparently does nothing about other drinks in plastic bottles.

It’s not like someone could simply go to another town, say Maynard or Bedford, to purchase the evil water bottles. Or, that drinks like Pepsi, Coke, Ginger Ale, orange soda, tea, etc, come in….plastic bottles (I often reuse soda or tea bottles by putting water in them).

This is clearly a case of Do-something-itis which affects many politicians, especially Liberal politicians. In this case we have a “crisis”, which really isn’t a crisis, but stick with me here. A crisis that demands legislation according to Leftist theology. So, we pass a law, and we feel better. The fact that the law is stupid does not stop that good feeling Liberals get from “doing something”. The fact that the law allows certain liquid products in evil plastic bottles but bans others in the same evil plastic bottles matters not either.

By the way, it seems that at one time plastic bags and bottles were pushed by Liberals in order to save our environment from evil paper bags and glass bottles. And they wonder why I call Liberalism an ideology of failure.

 

Your Marxist Moron of the Day is……….

Brought to us via William Teach, who discovers a real  devotee of climate change “science”

Imagine my surprise, and delight, to find a post at Think Progress that combines globull warming insanity and Palin Derangement Syndrome, all written by a bat guano crazy progressive (h/t to Tom Nelson, who pulled out the relevant quotes) In Her Own Words: My Imaginary Interview with Sarah Palin

Our guest blogger is long-time commenter Richard Brenne. He teaches a NASA-sponsored on-line Global Climate Change class and serves on the American Meteorological Society’s Committee to Improve Climate Change Communication.

Brenne:…Is there anything you do that doesn’t involve making sure peak oil and climate change cripple civilization and kill billions in all future generations?

Palin: No! I love that smell of the emissions!

Brenne: Does ingesting all those emissions give you any digestive tract issues?

Palin: I think my problem is that I do have the fire in my belly.

Brenne: I can tell. (Cough. Cough.) Could we open a window?

Palin: Oh it would be a blast if they were all this loud and if they smelled this good!

So, Palin wants to cripple civilization? And kill billions? Hmmm, why would a true worshipper at the Cult of Gore mind those things? After all is not a significant portion of the climate change crowd convinced that there are too many people on the planet? And crippling civilization? What does Mr Brenne think will happen if the draconian demands of the Cult of Climate Change are fully met?
