    This year I will be sharing brief excerpts from the articles, sermons, and books I am currently reading. My posts will not follow a regular schedule but will be published as I find well-written thoughts that should be of interest to maturing Christian readers. Whenever possible, I encourage you to go to the source and read the complete work of the author.

Dumb Climate Public Relations Idea

Environmental crusaders claim to want a more kumbayah world, but they’re apparently willing to advocate the most hideous violence to achieve it. A British climate fear group called the 10:10 Campaign is advocating that everyone cut their carbon emissions by 10 percent. To illustrate, they produced a video depicting a teacher leading her class in brainstorming for ideas. When two students react indifferently, the teacher shrugs it off, saying, “No pressure,” but then nonchalantly pushes a button, blowing up the two children.

As Wall Street Journal columnist James Taranto explains, “The ‘crime’ for which the children in the video are ‘executed’ is one of omission, not commission. They are murdered not even for dissenting against 10:10’s political crusade, but merely for being indifferent to it. This is the essence of totalitarianism.” This theme is repeated three more times in other contexts, all with adults.

Some companies have a policy that once someone is fired, they aren’t allowed back on the premises out of fear they might do further damage to the company. It’s too bad Congress doesn’t have the same policy. Because before they’re replaced in January, all of the Democrats who are put out of a job in November will be able to come back and rob the nation blind.

More than a dozen senators will come back to Washington and decide how much more tax money to take from Americans, without being accountable to any of them. Higher taxes, cap-and-trade, amnesty, and card check will be top-priority items for the Fired Congress, otherwise known as the lame-duck Congress. They’re also likely to roll unfinished appropriations bills into a massive, pork-stuffed omnibus to snag every last possible earmark on their way out of Washington.
