Letter in Texas paper: ‘Climate change scare is all about taking control’

Howard Weise of Yorktown, TX writes to the Victoria (TX) Advocate:

Editor, the Advocate:

The global warming supporters just won’t give up. Fox News says the Earth has not warmed since 1997 and, in fact, has cooled slightly. They have an explanation for this, of course. They go into a long dissertation explaining why this has happened, but the bottom line of it is that the Earth has cooled because it’s getting warmer. Brilliant, right? They have to keep pushing for legislation to halt the nonexistent global warming because their agenda is not really saving the planet at all. They want to use the climate to take further control of our lives. They will eventually tell us where to live, how many people may live in our house, what kind of car we must drive, how much electricity we may use, etc.

The same is true of Obamacare. They will use it to control almost everything we do, healthwise, to making us eat certain foods whether we want to or not, exercise whether we want to or not and so forth. If they truly wanted to give everyone in the country health care, they could have simply put everyone on Medicare, a system already in place. But Medicare doesn’t have control built into it, so they had to write a 2,700-page law to force us all into their will.

These people are socialists and call themselves progressives when they are anything but. They claim to be doing all they do for our benefit, but it’s really because of a lust for power. Only the elite benefit from socialism, as has been proven over and over again worldwide. God save me from people who think they know better than I how to conduct my affairs.

  1. He just does’t know what’s good for him. We need a paternalistic government to save him from himself and the planet.

  2. A heartening letter from an American with his head screwed on straight. He’s apparently familiarized himself with the engineered outcome of UN Agenda 21, with all its “communitarian” implications for freedom-loving Americans. God bless him.

    I couldn’t help but be reminded of Ronald Reagan’s statement: “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help.'”

  3. At 9:09 PM on 6 July, john dunn had commented:

    Thoreau was pretty good, but CS Lewis was better….

    I had actually intended to pull that C.S. Lewis quote, but I’d been citing it rather too much recently.

    But it’s best to carry that bit from “God in the Dock” (1948) to its conclusion:

    “They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be ‘cured’ against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”

    That, after all, is how the “Liberal” fascists consider their “bitter clinger” and “dumb-[***] cracker” neighbors, don’t they?

  4. Thoreau was pretty good, but CS Lewis was better when he said “of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of it’s victims may be the most oppressive . . those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

    algore actually does believe he is a superior man, inspite of his mediocrity–and so does the bamster, after all they work for the gov and all gov workers are smarter, wisers and certainly more powerful.

  5. To quote Henry David Thoreau:

    “If I knew for a certainty that a man was coming to my house with the conscious design of doing me good, I should run for my life.”
