RIGHT ON RED4
Where The Left Takes A Turn For The Worse








I know a lot of my news items come from the BBC; so many, in fact, that some of you may be under the impression that I am either British or trying to be. You would be mistaken (I'm from Tennessee, BIAAAAAAATCH!). I scan the British headlines because I love hearing about crazy Europeans and their endless supply of ridiculous bullshit.

Too bad you can't turn bullshit into water; according to this article, a group of concerned Swedes calling themselves the Stockholm International Water Institute (or Siwi for short), says that the planet is running out of H2O.

Hey wait a minute - I thought that because of global warming, we'll all be up to our ears in water when the polar icecaps melt. Problem solved, right?

Deeper into the piece, it becomes clear that this group's real goal is to scare us all into vegetarianism. The rationale is that grazing livestock require too much of the world's water supply, therefore, we must stop eating meat. The article even has a photo of a hamburger with the caption, "Meat is a treat for the rich."

I'm no scientist, but I know socialist brain manure when I smell it. The socialist solution to every shortage problem is to make everyone do with less. The American solution to a shortage problem is to invest in R and D and find new ways of increasing supply, or to create an alternative source of supply, or to create more efficient ways of producing and consuming supply - and make money doing it.
