The Christmas of the survivors of Trump's first year in office?
When we gather together this Christmas, it’s going to be super-awkward since everybody is dead because Donald Trump pulled out of the Paris Climate Scam, repealed net neutrality, and cut taxes. The depredations of Genghis Khan, the Black Plague, and the repeal of the Obamacare mandate – these are pretty much the same thing. Santa Claus and all of our dreams are dead too.Overall, I think it has been a pretty good year. I would say it has been merry and bright for the most part. I am not sure where liberals got the idea that conservatism was a killer, but they are being proven wrong about that.
On the plus side, since we are all dead there’s no one to make egg nog, which is the worst of all possible nogs.
Santa stuffed coal into the Democrats’ fishnet stockings this year, as well as all sorts of other fossil fuels. The President turned on the Keystone pipeline, unleashed our miners, and told the environmentalist whiners to go frack themselves. Growing up near San Francisco, a town memorably described by (I believe) comedian Bobby Slayton as “The city that makes its own gravy,” I got used to goateed, over-tatted progressive doofuses who imagined that the electricity that powered their iPads and automatic bongs came from magical windmills that didn’t ever dice n’ slice bald eagles. Of course, chopping up symbols of U.S. strength would probably be a plus in their beady, bloodshot eyes.
But the point is that liberals were never really about “clean power” – they were about outsourcing the dirty messy icky work of generating power to those lesser mortals out there in Real America. That is, until they realized that those lesser mortals out there in Real America were happy and prospering thanks to the energy industry, and we sure can’t have red staters being happy and prosperous. Heck, if you work and support yourself, you don’t need coastal liberals’ largesse, guidance, and control. Hence their hatred of fossil fuels, which is really their hatred of normal Americans. The progressives try to disguise the fact that environmentalism is really just a way to stick it to the red rubes by wrapping their carbonophobia in the sacred doctrines of their Weird Weather Cult.
Yeah, 2017 has been a terrible year for Gaia. But she struck back with hurricanes and fires, which are totally the result of global warming. Of course, the recent run of years where there were no big hurricanes or fires were not indicative of a lack of global warming because you hate science, or something.
