Recently a friend, Doug, got fed up and let loose on an issue. He was tired of mincing words and being diplomatic, and just wanted to tell it like it is.

The News Snipet is going to do the same.

Not long ago, the News Snipet pointed out that white western liberals throughout the world are faced with a new dilemma. One of their pet issues, global warming, was going to clash with another of their pet issues, poverty.

Visit here for the full article

Contemporary white western liberalism is a religion, and behaves like any other religion--it is all about controlling others based on "religious" principles without consideration of the original message and its intent.
  • In the name of tolerance, one becomes ultimately intolerant.
  • Broad mindedness ultimately becomes narrow-minded.
  • Non-discrimination becomes in discrimination which ultimately becomes discrimination.

One can only expect, that the results of this widespread and popular religion will yield the same fruit of any "theocracy."

The banners have been unfurled, and as "Onward Liberal Soldiers, marching as to war" swells from rank and file the machine grinds underfoot any opposition. Collateral damage is expected and acceptable, because the cause is self-affirmingly righteous.

This religious hysteria is beginning to harm people who are close to me, like Mr. Bobbie, not only that, but the effects are touching many world wide.

AOL News reports just one example:

"This week's story that no one read and everyone should have is about tortilla riots in Mexico. Yes, tortilla riots. In Mexico. Some 75,000 people protesting the rising price of tortillas.

Not to be overly blunt, but who cares, right? It's just a single grocery item in some other country. But the reason the people are up in arms is more important than anyone realizes.

Poor Mexicans rely on tortillas for their diet. And a lot of other poor people in a lot of other places rely on other foodstuffs made from corn.

The problem is ethanol. Ethanol, that fuel additive that reduces pollution and helps us wean our dependency on foreign oil and makes farmers rich and politicians look silly when they stump in Iowa. As the U.S. adds more ethanol to its gasoline, the price of corn is surging dramatically, leading to extreme market volatility."

While its religious leaders like Al Gore, a small, despicable and self-absorbed man who fancies himself the savior of the world, purchase "energy credits" (See HERE and HERE)and jet around the world preaching the gospel of "DO AS I SAY DO, NOT AS I DO", people are going to bed hungry at night.

While its religious groupies, like Sheryl Crowe who don't comprehend that much of the world can't even afford toilet paper, much less luxuriate in 1-3 sheets, engage in orgiastic consumption, old people are going to die from a lack of heating and cooling.

The blood of millions of innocents drips from the the hands of the world's religions and its warmongers, and this religion is no different.

  • This coming winter, many poor people will experience cold like never before because of liberal "green" energy policy and its impact on utilities.
  • This coming year, many poor people will go hungry as a result of misguided and moronic policies like the one mentioned above.
  • This coming decade more people will be pushed lower down the economic scale as a result of skyrocketing energy prices, regulation and taxation.

All for actions based on "all available evidence" pointing to something that doesn't exist.

Western white liberals, you have lost your moral authority to judge the likes of President Bush and his war machine. Your policies will make he and his cronies look like amateurs. You have lost your moral authority to point at the military-industrial complex and its death and destruction. You have lost your moral authority because your hands are covered with the same filth you claim to loathe.

  • Western white liberals used to think.
  • Western white liberals used to care.

But what was once a faith, is now just another dominating religion.

To read stories of other religious people who forgot what it was all about and had become with the "collateral damage" of their belief systems go here

    "Turn your eyes upon Jesus.
    Look full in His wonderful face.
    . . . "

    And it's smart to put cans, and bottles, and newspapers in the recycle bin. We are called to be stewards of the earth.

    That's the message we ought to hear.

    I agree, Helen! But it has gone so much further than that and it is beginning to hurt people--and badly. ALREADY!

    Where are all the "old liberals" like you gone, Helen?

    We desperately need them back!

    WASHINGTON -- A flock of small jets took flight from Washington Thursday, each carrying a Democratic presidential candidate to South Carolina for the first debate of the political season.

    For Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama, Chris Dodd and Joe Biden, it was wheels up shortly after they voted in favor of legislation requiring that U.S. troops begin returning home from Iraq in the fall.

    No one jet pooled, no one took commercial flights to save money, fuel or emissions.

    All but Biden, who flew on a private jet, chartered their flights -- a campaign expense of between $7,500 and $9,000."

    Excellent post. I especially like the link to DDT. I hail from the Northeast where EEE kills people. Not in numbers mind you I just find it appalling that the 21st century sees people die from bug bites.Of course liberals and by that I mean Socialists will gladly help the poor by taking more money from others and then help those....

    Hi In2!

    I think that a lot of these things just extend from mindless ignorance. A sheep mentality that is pervasive.

    My problem with socialism is that it is a failed system. It is a step away from fascism, and the limiting of our freedoms for often misdirected causes based on incomplete and incompetent data.

    It is a religious mindset that is often well meaning (but then again, so is the far rightwing fundamentalists mindset that thinks that one is saving babies by killing abortion doctors) but simplistic and naive. It bases its assumptions on moral relativity (there is no good, there is no evil), emotional affirmation (if it feels appropriate at the moment then its right) and short term thinking.

    The grasshopper in Aesop's fable is the typical socialist of our day.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.

WARNING! With due reverence to the Bill of Rights and the First Amendment there is NO comment policy on the News Snipet.
