"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive.
It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.

but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."

NEW: August 2, 2008: Missing in his disgraceful smear - this new Protocols of the Elders of Carbon - is any discussion of the science, other than one highly misleading reference. It simply doesn’t occur to this Professor of Slime that the tens of thousands of sceptics, including some of the most highly qualified climate scientists and related experts, may in fact be influenced not by Big Oil cash but by stubborn evidence, such as the fact the world hasn’t warmed in a decade, contrary to what global warming theory said had to happen."

Speak'n of cooler heads, does PETA Know about this? (how humiliating - a stupid cow being forced to wear around a giant, pink fart-bag day'n night...(no, actually it's a new performance art piece featured in the Tate Modern you Philistine!))
Somebody oughta strap this ridiculous contraption on to Gas-Bag Algore; might get us out of the global fuel crisis. Honestly, Marge, look at this picture; you're looking at the state of contemporary scientific inquiry in post-rational civilization. No, Pop, it's not really high-fallut'n, fancy-schmancy performance art (wish it were) but it is an example of your tax dollars at work. Can't wait till these morons get a hold of my health-care.
