Time Magazine to the Rescue

Posted by redsatellite on August 5, 2008

Much like Jim Dandy, Time Magazine has come to the rescue. Yes…evidently, the liberal rag BRISTLED when ‘right wingers’ started poking fun at Barack Obama and his energy plan- which encouraged all Americans to keep their tires inflated properly- to combat our nation’s oil crisis.

The real problem with the attacks on his tire-gauge plan is that efforts to improve conservation and efficiency happen to be the best approaches to dealing with the energy crisis — the cheapest, cleanest, quickest and easiest ways to ease our addiction to oil, reduce our pain at the pump and address global warming. It’s a pretty simple concept: if our use of fossil fuels is increasing our reliance on Middle Eastern dictators while destroying the planet, maybe we ought to use less.

The RNC is trying to make the tire gauge a symbol of unseriousness, as if only the fatuous believed we could reduce our dependence on foreign oil without doing the bidding of Big Oil. But the tire gauge is really a symbol of a very serious piece of good news: we can use significantly less energy without significantly changing our lifestyle.

STOP!

This is where liberals lose their minds- again and again…and CONTINUE to have a disconnect with reality. It’s wonderful to be informed of small simple techniques to reduce our dependency on oil, and practice them, it is. No one is arguing that….you whining drama queen. But if you think checking your tires regularly somehow remotely, even tangentially, slows man’s march to ‘destroying the planet’ as you so suggest in soaring hyperbole– you’ve been smoking the arugula again.

How in the name of Goodyear do liberals make a leap from inflating tires to DESTROYING THE PLANET? Only leftwing loons are capable of such math.

Being energy efficient is wonderful you 10 watt compact fluorescent bulb. But the vast majority of Americans checking their tires every damn day- won’t change a thing. We need oil or we need an alternative solution. Either drill or give me another source of fuel.

Period.
