Got Green?

Posted in Humor, The Environment on December 28th, 2008

It seems we in the Developed World can’t go a single day without being bombarded by various doomsaying rants about the Global Warming Crisis and ecological catastrophes in general. The various proponents of the disparate green agendas do their best to inundate us daily with admonishments to join their cause or else….

Since this is more off-putting than effective in gaining support for the Green movements – some of which , in IMHO, are valid enterprises for mankind – I thought I’d make a suggestion for a more effective technique for marketing the Green agenda to America and the West.

Got Green?

LOL – That’s a Green Movement I could get behind!

I mean really come on! The environmental activists don’t have a great track record for getting the general populous through browbeating them into submission. I think they and the Earth would be better served by trying to win the heart and…er…umm…minds(?) of the people.

The Magic Negro

Posted in Politics on December 27th, 2008

Republican National Committee (RNC) candidate Chip Saltsman’s Christmas greeting to RNC committee members included a 41-track CD along with a note to national committee members. The candidate the chairmanship of the Republican National Committee’s gift has garnered him the “focused attention” of the drive-by media and the anger of the Left.

The CD mocks the Liberals with songs such as: John Edwards’ Poverty Tour, Wright Place, Wrong Pastor, Love Client #9, Ivory and Ebony, and The Star Spanglish Banner, amongst other works of satire and parody.

Of course none of the tracks listed above are what has drawn the ire of the Left. The media has focused the Liberals’ attention and outrage on a single track on the CD, Barack The Magic Negro. A parody of Puff The Magic Dragon made somewhat famous – or infamous – by conservative radio host, Rush Limbaugh.

In their now usual manner the MSM has painted Mr. Saltsman and the Republican Party as racist due to this ditty. What they’ve – of course – failed to do is provide either the lyrics of the offending song or the context within which it was created. They felt that sensationalizing the title alone would suit their purposes better.
