"LIke all demagogues his only "reasoning" is that ONLY HE has the truth--regardless of how nothing supports his claims." -unknown
A new form of mindless madness is present in America and it is the American Right Wing's twisted vision of America. I never thought I would see other Americans rooting against a plan to create jobs and prosperity for fellow Americans in a major city. I think that the kooks on the Right Wing have become malevolent. The Zogby poll showed that 85 percent of Americans supported Chicago's bid for the Olympics, but these people are oblivious of the good that it could have done. What does it say about the Right Wing and their meanness. A meanness supported by media low lights such as Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh who cheered the loss of the Olympics to Chicago and the defeat it caused President Obama, with no thought to the jobs it might have created.
Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh are sick twisted veil damaged human beings. They have lost all perspective. They live in their own little manic world and have become the demagogues of the Right. They address the verbal diarrhea to mans irrational side by distortion and obscuring the truth while appealing to peoples basest prejudices'. The problem is that the Right is peopled by those who no longer think for themselves, who no longer have compassion for others and have lost their humanity.
The Right has lost the intellectual leadership that the Republicans could once claim. They are now led by the intellectually challenged. Their leaders are television and radio evangelists, and con men who pose as talk show commentators. The Republican politicians have sold out to the corporate interests that have bought them for 30 pieces of silver.
The followers of the right lack sophistication and clarity of mind, they rely on slogans, and a warped irrationality of saving America from the absurd lie about socialism. A lie that would be laughable, but considering the source, Right Wing media and corporate paid for propaganda, it is believed by the uninformed and stupid or those with a self serving interest in the falsehood, make it dangerous. These fringe lunatic Right Wingers are dangerous and the Right Wing media that panders to their fears is creating a situation that is dangerous for our country. These Right Wing media fear mongers are already culpable in the deaths of abortion doctors and attacks on gays, deaths and violence they tacitly approve of. That is not enough for these mutants they want more and they would dance with joy if there were a successful physical attack on our president.
There is an anti intellectual movement in America. The movement views people that can clearly state the issues and speak to the facts with insight as someone to be attacked. For the first time in eight years we have a president with intelligence, a president that is respected around the world, and that hasn't happened in a long time, a president who gives hope to the world that America can be again the beacon of hope to a world beset with problems, fears and dangers. Those on the Right will never realize what they have and when and if they ever do it may be to late.
"What does the number 350 mean?
350 is the most important number in the world--it's what scientists say is the safe upper limit for carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Two years ago, after leading climatologists observed rapid ice melt in the Arctic and other frightening signs of climate change, they issued a series of studies showing that the planet faced both human and natural disaster if atmospheric concentrations of CO2 remained above 350 parts per million.
Everyone from Al Gore to the U.N.’s top climate scientist has now embraced this goal as necessary for stabilizing the planet and preventing complete disaster. Now the trick is getting our leaders to pay attention and craft policies that will put the world on track to get to 350.
Is 350 scientifically possible?
Right now, mostly because we’ve burned so much fossil fuel, the atmospheric concentration of co2 is 390 ppm—that’s way too high, and it’s why ice is melting, drought is spreading, forests are dying. To bring that number down, the first task is to stop putting more carbon into the atmosphere. That means a very fast transition to sun and wind and other renewable forms of power. If we can stop pouring more carbon into the atmosphere, then forests and oceans will slowly suck some of it out of the air and return us to safe levels.
Is 350 politically possible?
It’s very hard. It means switching off fossil fuel much more quickly than governments and corporations have been planning. Our best chance to speed up that process will come in December in Copenhagen, when the world’s nations meet to agree on a new climate treaty. Right now, they’re not planning to do enough. But we can change that--if we mobilize the world to swift and bold climate action, which is what we're planning to do on October 24th."
