Bloviating Zeppelin: The Air Is Falling In Chunks

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

The Air Is Falling In Chunks



The sky is falling. Falling; hell the sky is raining chunks of clotted air. The Kyoto Protocol. That First-World-Killing device we clearly should have signed. Al Gore the 'Viro's Whore knows that -- and knows more than you do.

Because now AGVW says that cigarette smoke is a "significant contributor to global warming."


Per the Drudge Report:

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore warned hundreds of U.N. diplomats and staff on Thursday evening about the perils of climate change, claiming: Cigarette smoking is a "significant contributor to global warming!"

Gore, who was introduced by Secretary-General Kofi Annan, said the world faces a "full-scale climate emergency that threatens the future of civilization on earth."

Gore showed computer-generated projections of ocean water rushing in to submerge the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City, parts of China, India and other nations, should ice shelves in Antarctica or Greenland melt and slip into the sea.

"The planet itself will do nicely, thank you very much -- what is at risk is human civilization," Gore said. After a series of Q& A with the audience, which had little to do with global warming and more about his political future, Annan bid "adios" to Gore.

Then, Gore had his staff opened a stack of cardboard boxes to begin selling his new book, "An Inconvenient Truth, The Planetary Emergency of Global Warming and What We Can Do About It," $19.95, to the U.N. diplomats.

Can the UN sink any lower -- where now a failed American Pol gets to shill his book in open session? Can we find someone to hawk control-top panty hose next week? How about some Ginsu Knives? -- slices, dices, cuts prices? Can I interest you in some Guatemalan Viagra?

Please.

For a moment, if we were to credit this with even the remotest semblance of veracity, where would one now find the greatest abuse of smoking on the planet?

Certainly not in the United States, what with its Left-Driven proscribing of smoking and various laws that now even make it illegal in many jurisdictions to smoke in public. Can't smoke in bars in Fornicalia. Can't smoke within 25' of doors in government buildings. Soon to be unable to smoke in your own vehicle if there is a child in the car -- that would be child abuse!

Smoking in the US? Heretic! Blasphemer! Impious! Sacrilege!

Yes; certainly not in the United Snakes of America.

Where? Certainly heavily in Europe: Britain, Ireland, heavily in Scotland; Spain, Greece, heavy smokers in Italy; much smoking in Russia and its Balkanized satellites; China, India, Pakistan, Indonesia and Tonga.

Huh. Most everywhere except the United States.

Looks like the Euros and the rest of the developing world have something to work on, according to AGVW.

Trust me: I am no fan of cigarettes. I grew up in a household where my mother smoked more than the typical 1874 London factory. Her smoking was so despicable that it drove me, luckily, from cigarettes (and marijuana during the 60s and 70s) altogether.

My mother died of complications from COPD on May 14th of 2002. She literally ran out of breath, a short time following her 80th birthday, in a sterile, impersonal hospital. I can recall that was the only time I'd ever seen my father cry, holding her cool hand in his, cannula blanch marks on her face.

Despite that, I know that AGVW is, quite frankly, not only full of shit but focusing his ire on the wrong country.

Once again.

Okay. One of my better posts.

That no one evidently saw.

Them's the breaks. But I cannot in good conscience leave this un-commented-upon.

I particularly appreciated the acronym for AGVW. Nicely done!
