Tangerines Are On The No-Fly List
The global warming insaniacs are raising the bar a mite, trying to outdo each other listing the many things we all do that are anti-algorian. According to Ben Smith, Elizabeth Edwards believes that tangerines are the new heroin--but not in quite the same way. No one claims that tangerines are un-nutritious or that they create homicidal maniacs of their aficionados, but rather that they have to be transported in carbon producing planes, trains, ships and trucks.
She says that she will "probably never eat a tangerine again," because they aren't grown locally and must be shipped. Note that she inserted the word "probably." Yet another case of the inability of politicians to make an absolute statement. Note here, where John Edwards did the same thing about a hamburger restaurant.
Well, according to Mrs. Edwards' "logic," a lot of individuals will have to severely change not only their their eating habits, but many habits. No more bananas. No more pineapples (except for Hawaiians). Very little rice (unless you live in the deep south). No more Hondas or Lexi. Or BMW's, Mercedes. No more Italian shoes. No more French wine. No more salmon unless you live in the Pacific northwest. No more caviar, fer cryin' out loud.
The list could go on for pages and pages.
Of course, what the Edwards family, and the rest of the wealthy, hypocritical algorians will do is take one of their private planes to Russia when they want caviar, and to Hawaii when they want pineapple.
Life is good when you don't have to live with the consequences of your actions.
They've killed Freedom! Those bastards!
