Dems Attempt to Greenwash Convention
The Dem convention is still two months away, but moonbat insanity is already choking Denver. Mayor John Hickenlooper has declared that it must be "the greenest convention in the history of the planet" — meaning that every detail must conform to absurd environmentalist ideology.
Greenwashing a moonbatfest of this size entails challenges. Many souvenir goodies will be passed out, and all must be of sound ideological pedigree. Fanny packs and baseball caps that are made of "organic cotton" (as opposed to inorganic cotton) by union labor in the USA are not easy to come by.
Convention organizers have actually hired someone with the title Director of Greening. Her responsibilities include trying to get allegedly biodegradable balloons to decompose by burying them in a compost heap. Under the Director of Greenwashing serves the Official Carbon Adviser, who measures the greenhouse gas emissions of placards, appetizers, and coffee cups.
The good news is that green collar jobs — which Dems have promised in compensation for the millions of jobs that will be lost when they strangulate the economy in the name of the global warming hoax — have actually begun to appear:
Decked out in green shirts, 900 volunteers will hover at waste-disposal stations to make sure delegates put each scrap of trash in the proper bin. Lest a fork slip into the wrong container unnoticed, volunteers will paw through every bag before it is hauled away.
In addition to providing a substitute for useful employment, Dems have also replaced the love of country they hold in such low esteem. According to Hickenloopy, environmentalist tomfoolery is "the new patriotism."
On tips from Varla, Oiao, and V the K.

Yes, to heck with regular old, run-of-the-mill patriotism. Only environmentalists will be known as the TRUE patriots in the Brave New World.
By the way, is his suit made of hemp or organic cotton and woven by little old women in the Andes? If not, he should be horsewhipped.

More global warming tomfoolery

Hickenlooper? HICKENLOOPER?! BWAAAAHAHAHAHA! I couldn't make up a name like that if I tried! And apparently people take him seriously, too.

"Director of Greening?" You gotta be kidding me.
And what the hell is a "streaming compost pile"? I have a couple compost piles - one for the bulky, woody yard waste, and one for the quick stuff that I use in the garden. If either of them started "streaming" I'd be sure to quit hosing them down.
Yeah, that's right, I have compost piles. Put that is your hashpipes and smoke it, moonbats!
Alot of normal people compost stuff to save money on trash or for use in the garden - moonbat know-it-alls like to talk about it, but how many of them actually grow a proper garden or make a compost heap work right. Probably not too many.

I am still looking for the petition to add "None of the Above to the Presidential ballot in the fall! There should be a law... if enough Americans choose "None of the Above", they (both parties) have to go back to the drawing board and choose another candidate!!! End of elections where you choose the one you "dislike the least"!

I agree with forest.
Gardening, composting, recycling, heck we've been doing that for years. Long before it became trendy. We grew up with that, before hippy-green became the state color. And we did NOT do it to save the world from evil carbon emissions.
And I'll bet most lefties don't bother with it, they're into some carbon credit scheme instead.

The "Director of Greening" is Andrea Robinson. I hate to say this about a liberal (especially a green one) - but she's a babe. I mean a REAL babe...
Sorry to be so sexist... :-)

No problemo; we'll just buy the ones made with Communist chinese prison labor.

OBAMA XLVI: GO RALPHIE!
June 25th, 2008
No matter what else one may think of Ralph Nader–that he’s a spoiler, a great voice for consumers or a horse’s ass–most people would have to admit he’s honest.
Today, Ralphie took honesty to a whole new level when he said that Senator Obama “wants to appeal to white guilt. You appeal to white guilt not by coming on as black is beautiful, black is powerful. Basically he’s coming on as someone who is not going to threaten the white power structure, whether it’s corporate or whether it’s simply oligarchic. And they love it. Whites just eat it up.” http://www.rockymountainnews.com/news/2008/jun/25/nader-critical-of-obama-for-trying-to-talk-white/. (Of course, I’ve said pretty much the same thing in my various blogs on Obama; see, especially, OBAMA XXIII. http://genelalor.com/)
There was little response from the Obama camp other than campaign spokeswoman’s Shannon Gilson’s comment that, ”We are obviously disappointed with these very backward-looking remarks.”
Nader plans to visit Denver in August to make his case for “an alternative agenda” to the DNC at the Dem convention which makes it even more promising that Denver will be hosting a circus more than a convention. It should make the 1968 debacle look civilized!
You go, Ralphie!

Indeed. The US constitution was written to make the federal government subserviant to the STATES, so we can just let the state governments (And whatever feds got elected) run things untill the parties got their acts together.
And as for any 'global warming' worshipers who may read this; YOUR OWN DATA proves that CO2 levels rise many years AFTER the Earth gets warm. So all your hysteria about CO2 making the Earth hot is a lot of BULLSPIT!

Did he get dressed in the dark? What an appalling tie.

I bet you donuts to dollars the convention still looks like the aftermath of Woodstock 69. If it rains they'll be lucky, mud hides a lot of crap.

"Jimbo at June 25, 2008 12:23 PM" - Jimbo, if you're gonna tease us with how much of a babe the greening director is, you need to at least provide a link so we can make our own assessment!

Pablo - just for you (and fellow sexist male chauvinist pigs):
Parting shot - as I mentioned a few weeks ago when Van first posted a thread on this same subject - I wish I could get stock in the local Denver market for McDonalds, Burger King, and Denney's for the days the convemtion is going. Hypocrite liberals will be flocking for fried food - course - they'll be incognito.

If you don't think she is a died-in-the-wool moonbat - she also organizes "shows" for Algorians. Follow some links from her photos.

"Hypocrite liberals will be flocking for fried food - course - they'll be incognito."
Probably true Jimbo, but their disguises never work. John Kerry in a hunting jacket? Dukakis in a tank crew helmet? Obama standing in front of a barn and a Farmall tractor? They're not fooling anybody.

And how could I forget Al Gore. Maybe he can try to place the order at the drive-through using street gang sign language.
