"Thinkers" or "Joiners"

The answer, when asked of many of the lefty environmental kooks, is "Joiners" as this very interesting video from Penn and Teller shows. They have someone attend an environmental rally with a petition to ban "di-hydrogen oxide", and collect hundreds of signatures.

This reminds me of a stunt the old "Man Show" ran when they went to a women's rights rally/get-together and had the unsuspecting ladies sign a petition to bad "women's suffrage". Here's a copycat that illustrates the point almost as well.

This was really funny. I loved her true statements about "Dihydrogen Monoxide."

"It's in our lakes and reservoirs."

"It's on our vegetables and fruits and you can't wash it off."

"It can cause excess sweating and urination."

Funny stuff.

That's all very amusing, until one of these people VOTES.

They always vote. How do you think we get the government we've got? I'd support IQ qualifications for voting.

Of course it's funny. Watch the video! Funny things are usually tinged with the tragic. So what?

If conservatives become as joyless as feminists, conservatism dies.

(How many feminists does it take to screw in a lightbulb? THAT"S NOT FUNNY!)

(Actually, the answer is two, but it better be a pretty big lightbulb, and I don't know how they would get inside it, and, oh wait, they can't because they're both women.)

I've watched the video many times. I've even tried laughing at the manifold insanities which make up the modern political left-- their campaigns, their pontifications and their proposals. Humor is an excellent tonic against the woes of liberal governance, and an effective tool for rousing opposition to their most outrageous excesses.

Liberals cannot be taken seriously, but they are as serious as a heart attack when given power, which they achieve at the expense of the woefully (and deliberately) under- or mis-informed masses such as those illustrated here. I have long suggested, somewhat tongue in cheek, that people should be required to prove some level of relevant knowledge before exercising their "right" to vote. That is made difficult, and deliberately so, by liberal politicians' relentless demagoguery. How do you suppose these clueless became so?

Ignorance of basic knowledge knows no political boundaries. It is funny that people are so easily duped into believing something that, when looked at for a second or two, is obviously pure crap.

I dated a woman once in college whom after a conversation regarding an article in the NY Times about terraforming Mars so that it could sustain life, she replied "that it was wrong for us to mess with the environment of another planet."

She was a smart... but left... so not so smart. We broke up soon after.
