Both groups took what should have been a nonpartisan issue that we all could agree upon and turned it into a partisan issue that we could never agree upon. Hollywood could not script dumber, more manufactured plots.
Plot I: Global Warming Alarmists lie and fudge and hide the data in order to try to create mass hysteria by claiming that mans’ activities are causing global warming in order to cause every day citizens to voluntarily give up their SUVs and incandescent light bulbs in order to save The Planet from impending doom! Every day citizens who are concerned about pollution at first gullibly accept the notion that the temporary warming trend is anthropogenic. Besides, who doesn’t oppose waste and pollution!!? Millions watched the Chronicles of al Goracal and rushed out to purchase their carbon offsets. Then Global Warming Alarmists over-play their hand, get caught hiding data and lying about “the science is settled,” and oh, did I mention that they wanted to bilk taxpayers for trillions along the way? And in the end they were soundly rejected by all right-thinking citizens.
Plot II: Health Care Insurance Alarmists lie and fudge and hide the data (and even the bill itself) in order to try to create mass hysteria by claiming that there is a health care crisis in order to cause every day citizens to voluntarily give up their own insurance and their privacy and personal rights, not to mention to trample on states’ rights, in order to allow the federal government to control healthcare. Every day citizens who are alarmed at the escalating cost of insurance resolve to voluntarily give up their own choice in the matter for the betterment of society. Besides, who doesn’t think health insurance is too expensive, and that health insurance should be portable and that health insurance companies should have more competition!!? Then ObamaCarebots over played their hand, got caught lying about how it will insure an extra 45 million people for less cost, and by claiming that they seek bipartisan support. And oh, did I mention that they wanted to bilk taxpayers for trillions along the way? And in the end they were soundly rejected by all right-thinking citizens.
If the dumb asses pushing these two issue were any dumber, you would think that they were made in Hollywood.
