And happy holidays to you, too.

Well, in the spirit of the Christmas/New Years season, some honyock went and set fire to the house that was the one-time home of the Bush family.

Now part of the Presidential museum in Odessa, Texas, the home suffered severe damage to the front door, windows and attic.

Investigators have determined that the person or persons unknown spread liquid accelerant on the front door and windows before setting them alight. They are quick to point out that there is -- and I quote:

"no reason at this point to believe it was a political act."

*snort*

Watch for this story to disappear.

In other Moonbat holiday wishes, we discover that some frothing leftist name of Dave Lindorff is happily running his mush.

His Happy Holiday wishes seem to centre around a Global Warming-fueled flood to drown most of the conservative part of the United States.

Goodness.

In the dreams of Mr. Lindorff, very quickly -- apparently in less than the average 14-year lifespan of the common housecat -- Global Warming will inundate Florida, Louisiana, most of Georgia; South and North Carolina, the "most populated area" of Texas; and most of Alabama and Mississippi.

The upshot -- according to this fanatical little bugsnipe -- is, and I quote:

"So the future political map of America is likely to look as different as the much shrunken geographical map, with much of the so-called “red” state region either gone or depopulated."

*snort*

For the moment, let us ignore the typical bushwa science exhibited here (sea level rising the 20 feet it would take to swamp "almost all of Florida" in a cat's lifetime? Put down the bong, dude).

No, let us ponder those concepts that are a little more concrete.

When Mr. Lindorff muses...

"The important thing is that we, on the higher ground both actually and figuratively, need to remember that, when they begin their historic migration from their doomed regions, we not give them the keys to the city. They certainly should be offered assistance in their time of need, but we need to keep a firm grip on our political systems, making sure that these guilty throngs who allowed the world to go to hell are gerrymandered into political impotence in their new homes.

There will be much work to be done to help the earth and its residents—human and non-human—survive this man-made catastrophe, and we can’t have these future refugee troglodytes, should their personal disasters still fail to make them recognize reality, mucking things up again."

(Highlighting is mine)

... he neglects to remember that, well ...

*scratch, scratch*

... we've got the guns.


Of course, we've also got the military training, the military experience, the survival training, the big mean dogs, the hunters and everything else those of his ilk fear and have nothing to do with.

And guns. I did mention that us "troglodytes" have a hell of a lot more guns than Lindorff's Eloi, right?

Just between you and me, if 20 million rednecks with shotguns want the "keys to the city", it's less traumatic and messy to just go ahead and hand them thar keys over.

Put that in your holiday bong and smoke it, Lindorff -- you daft git.

bwahahaha. Pathetic enviro-commie better pray to whatever heathen gods he will. The sacking we rednecks could put on his city would make Ragnar look like an amature.

Just wait till his precious starbucks is replaced with a greasy spoon specializing in delicious, gravy covered goodness, and the Istore is converted into the Dixie Rose deluxe beer bait bbq tractor parts laundry mat....

I didn't bother to read the linked article. But based on what this guy was hoping, I wonder if he followed through on the *entire* implications of his prediction. Like the fact that the key liberal population centers on the Eastern Seaboard and California--New York, Boston, San Francisco, etc. etc.--are also vulnerable to flooding. Being, you know, at sea level.

Still, it'd make for a dandy post-apocalyptic science-fiction scenario. Florida airboat pirates streaking down the half-submerged streets of New York, anyone?

doubletrouble said...

Funny-
The thing this “bugsnipe” seems to overlook is that most of “his kind” live in the big cities, which are where?
Yeah, on the coasts. Next to the water.
So, as the water rises & the flatlanders start runnin’- where are they going?
Right again, into the arms of us country folk.
I’ve got an old codger friend, who believes that we need to be well enough armed to repel not invading enemies, but displaced citizens of the cities if terrorists (or whatever) strike in the population centers.
I’d like to think that I’d be above stuff like that, but Mr. Lindorff’s comments will make me rethink my humanity, Eloi or no (Gawd, I loved that book).
Tarleton's quarter.
My old codger friend may have it right- more’s the pity…
Good post LD.

If San Francisco and Los Angeles are underwater, the entire state of California becomes a Republican enclave. If he bothered a cursory glance at Orange and Riverside Counties, for example...

Ah, that would be a problem, wouldn't it? This whole READING and THINKING thing, eh?

Does this mean that I'll be able to flyfish for redfish and tarpon on new bays and oysterbeds just outside of Waxahatchie before 2020?

I'll go pull my catalytic converters off first thing in the morning and see if I can score another couple of cords of firewood to do my part.

Regards,

Rednecks = Farmers

Farmers = Food

Farmers control food. Farmers are (usually) conservative.

Cities eat food. You can lock your gates, but you'll be doing the Donner Party Dinner writ large.
I'll stick with corn and beef.

I'm looking forward to seeing him reminded of his idiocy in less than two decades. Talk about hubris-- what is wrong with people that they'd gloat about impending disasters? I'm picturing him rubbing his hands together and sniveling like Peter Lorre. Petty, bilious and mean, I'd call it. I can't believe anyone wants to play his reindeer games.

C S P Schofield said...

I'm not sure the context fits, but I remember P. J. O'Rourke reacting to some Moonbat comparing a typically Moonbat cause to the anti-slavery movement by saying something like "Granted, these people need a Fort Sumptering, but given that they are famously in favor of Gun Controil, who is going to shoot back?"

Just wanted to point out, that a certain Kevin Costner movie aside, the planet Earth is a pretty big place. Melt all the ice on the planet, let it flow into the oceans, and global sea levels will rise by only 300 feet. While this is cataclysmic for current beachfront property values, it's not the end of the world. I'm conservative, (mostly) libertarian, and live 450 feet above sea level. I'll take my chances.

Already has, if industry is part of the metric (Cripes, Alabama owns "Detroit" when it comes to automotive affairs). Too bad we can't keep the northern and way southern transplants chasing jobs out. What's going on is tantamount to cultural genocide.

Farmgirl said...

They can keep me out of their political systems all they like. Meanwhile, I'll be over here, shooting me a rabbit, raisin me some corn, and generally living the exact same way I have been.

Speaking as one who grew up 10 miles from Manhattan, and who now lives 35 miles from Boston... BRING IT ON!

I'd love to see those wretched hives of liberalism and villainy flooded out.

Gary said...

When I read his article, I first thought it was a parody. Alas, he's not only clueless, but serious.

He proposes putting dikes around Boston, New York, and other fine liberal cities. Of course he forgets that his liberal friends of the "Save the Earth" organizations would tie that up with litigation until it's too late.

Liberals are amusing because they are sooooooo schtupid.

Zundfolge said...

Ugh, thats all I need. More leftist idiots being encouraged to move to "higher ground" and further spoil my beautiful Colorado.

The Anonymous Therapist said...

On the behalf of all of us reasonable northerners (there are a few), I'd like to apologize for drivel like this. Really we're not all screeching harpy liberal nutjobs like this guy: the North I grew up in was more about common sense and decency and less about wanting entire regions to be flooded because of hateful politics.

"gunner" said...

as you so succinctly point out the basic fallacy in mr. lindorf's thinking, ( i use the term loosely) we "rednecks", and more than he realises live in new england, have the guns. we are the military vets and most police officers are recruited from our ranks. as well his prediction of mid-america being drowned by a new inland sea is based on the computer model "science" of al gore, which is being increasingly refuted by real world fact. we may be in a warm cycle, like the "medieval warm" period but the world, and it's people will adjust and go on as we have before, though judging by his aged appearance mr. lindorf likely will not be here to see it though that will cause little grief in the world at large.

Well done, Lawdog, from one of those North Florida swamprats with his military experience and firearms.

"...shores of Amichael..."

This is a new one on me.

I'm up above 1500' so none of the flooding would get to me. However, we're already getting a lot of folks from south Florida as retirees and ain't all of 'em Conservative. A lot of 'em, if they're not Liberal, they're just blissninnies who think it's nice and quiet and safe here just because it's quieter than where they came from.

You know, this kind of babble illustrates how supposedly well educated people can warp their views to fit their personal fantasies. Doesnt this lug nut read history? I dont care how far back you go, whenever there is a large crisis that rapidly changes the societal 'norm', society always gets more conservative in its views and actions, not vice-versa. [Leave Vietnam and the current war out of it, I am talking about things that directly impact the majority of a societies' citizens]. This yo-yo's major flooding disaster is NOT going to have all the liberals out hugging trees and kissing the thieves and gangs who are stealing and pillaging to survive the catastophe. Its going to have practical people banding together to survive and protect themselves. And basic survival is NOT conducive to a bunch of pie-in-the-sky 'discussion groups' or 'think tanks'. Its about realistic, practical skills and views and applying them to the crisis.

bogie said...

I figure there's a scenario that a lot more likely to happen than a bit of fresh global warming beach front property... And this product of our higher education system probably won't like it... Some nutjobs eventually coordinate enough to shut down enough transport that a few of our cities start to run out of stuff... Or maybe it'll just be Bubba and Cooter, tired of getting laughed at... At any rate, if the trucks and trains stop, I figure that the major cities will start to self-destruct within 48 hours, and the mass exodus will happen within 96... And heaven help folks living in the outer 'burbs.

Guys. Don't worry about Global Warming, it's all propaganda. The climate changes constantly (Some say we're heading for a cold spell in the next 20 years). Al Gore and his fellow travellers are no climatologists, and a lot of his assertions have already been shot down in flames. The UN's IPCC is no better. They decide the answers and warp the data to match. That ain't science.

If you want a better grip on the facts rather than the fiction, go over to www.climate-skeptic.com. He's pretty good at explaining what's really going on with the climate.

Alternatively, wait for the false panic to set in, and then buy up all the beachfront property at a serious discount. You can't lose.
