Our Most Predictable Annual Cycle

As I approach age 60, I can’t remember a single year when the government didn’t attempt to frighten the citizenry over some imaginary problem.

President Johnson told us that the North Vietnamese were going to invade the US, after taking over Asia and the Pacific. He felt that stopping this was worth the lives of 60,000 American young men.

Shortly thereafter, the government saved us from global cooling.

In the 1960s and 1970s, a growing scientific consensus held that the Earth was entering a period of global cooling. The CIA announced that the “Western world’s leading climatologists have confirmed recent reports of detrimental global climatic change” akin to the Little Ice Age of the 17th and 18th centuries, “an era of drought, famine and political unrest in the western world.” President Jimmy Carter signed the National Climate Program Act to deal with the coming global cooling crisis.

President Obama believes that making the US less competitive through higher energy prices, will  reduce the record low number of hurricanes the US has been experiencing in recent years.

    “As I approach age 60 …”

    Somehow you seem to write much younger than that …

      Strictly speaking he could be, and still be approaching 60.
      Everyone under 60 is approaching 60.
      Just being pedantic!

    Skeeter does not believe anything of the sort, he just wants to consolidate power, and dictate our every move. Your assertion that his actions are for the benefit of mankind is of course comical, as intended.

    The federal governemnt is a cess pool of arrogance, vanity and greed.

    • stewart pid says:

      Eric how dare you insult cess pools in that manor 😉
      Steven … congrats on the 60 milestone … I had mine 3 weeks ago.

    It seems clear the entire objective of environmentalism is to diminish, or perhaps destroy, western economies. It’s the vision of eco-psycho Maurice Strong. None of them believe in the climate con that they made up out of thin air. That is for the plebes.

  5. Andy DC says:

    When people tell you that they can predict the future, they usually make fools of themselves. When they think they can preempt it, the results are usually disastrous.

    I can remember the government saving us from cranberries, red dye #2, eggs, fried food, grilled food, bird flu, chicken flu, swine flu, DDT, too much ozone, too little ozone, artificial sweeteners, acid rain, wasting disease, gmo’s, African bees, Y2K, big soda drinks, trans-fat, global warming, climate change, climate disruption ………….. We are so used to the fear tactics used by the government, we can’t, or won’t, be able to recognize a real threat when it does appear.

    I suppose he’s leading by example in reducing trips on Air Force One and curtailing his “carbon footprint”

    “The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.” ― H.L. Mencken

    My favorite quote about politics because it is SOOooo appropriate.

    As your testosterone level fades so far that you both lash out at minor constructive criticism and also harbor every “you too but not me today” uber misfit posture….

    Tell a story of two.

    Join the human race.

    I wonder if all NYC males must seek testosterone medication. Maybe that is where the term “metro-sexual” comes from?
