Moscow-on-the-Charles...

Numerous sources (heh) have sent me links to this story asking for my thoughts:

Harvard Hometown Plans Coercive Taxes, Veganism to Stop Climate 'Emergency'


Going green will not be optional in Cambridge, Mass., if the Cambridge Climate Congress has its way. It will be mandatory.

There will be congestion pricing to reduce car travel. Curbside parking will be eliminated. There will be a carbon tax "of some kind," not to mention taxes on plastic and paper bags. And the Massachusetts city, home of Harvard University and the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will advocate vegetarianism and veganism, complete with "Meatless or Vegan Mondays."

Those are just some of the proposals put forth by the Congress, which was created in May 2009 to respond to the "climate emergency" plaguing Cambridge. Once the Congress settles on its recommendations, they will submitted to the City Council.
Really, you need to read the whole thing. It's little more than a laundry list of every far-out Gorebot enviro-nazi wet dream to roll down the pike. Note, if you will, the two main actions proposed: Banning things, and raising and/or levying taxes. This is what the left is about in a nutshell - ban what you can, make money off the rest. It comes down to money and power in the end - and has nothing to do with "saving the environment". The environment, nebulous and all-encompassing as it is, is a means, not an end.

There's a couple things to consider here:

First off, it's Cambridge. They want so desperately to be Berkeley it's not even funny. It was the setting for "Good Will Hunting", and the area has never recovered from the thrill of hosting Robin Williams' smug leftism... This might pass - and I hope it does - and they will most certainly wind up choking on it. Let them do it; let it fail miserably; and let it serve as a beacon to the other puddinheaded greenie imbeciles out there.

Secondly, I'll make y'all a promise. They get any of this through, here's what I'll do. I'll jack my truck up a good 6" or so; put 38" Mickey Thompson Super Swampers on it; put the American flag on the left side of the bed and the Gadsden on the right; then I'll drive through Cambridge playing "Proud to be an American" through a 1200 watt stereo.

Don't thank me - it's just a service I offer...

That is all.

Jay,
Make sure you also display a very large and very prominent "I AM THE NRA" Flag . . .

Andrew said...

PLEASE! When you do that ride, I wast to be in there too!

Super Swampers are made by Interco, not Mickey Thompson, but ya got the right idea. :)

I also have a pair of flag holders I made that drop into the stake pockets in the bed of Ram. I'll donate another set to the cause if it passes.

Would it be appropriate to start puttin heads on pikes in my yard if someone tries to pull that crap in my neck
of the woods?

ZerCool said...

When you do this - and I think you will be - please invite the local chapter of Hell's Angels to ride along with you. Because you know, motorcycles are eco-friendly vehicles.

Where do we send donations for the modifications? :)

Heath said...

You need a paypal link to raise the coin for that.. People pay for that kind of entertainment.

You'd also need a big BBQ grill for the bed, so you can char some tasty critters while rolling around antagonizing idiots..

Stephen said...

Heath stole my idea. But while that whole pig is slowly turning on a spit, there really should be some gals with guns tending the grill.

There are some nice houses, (situated 5-foot apart from each other), and the green spaces are nice enough in a canned environment sort of way, but Cambridge still is dumpy, with streets that smell of pee, for the most part.

Heath said...

Bwahahahah... Evil Idea Lightbulb just came on..

We need to set a rally point, and have a PARADE..

Ross said...

Jay, you need a horn that plays Dixie to go with that...

And I, too, want space in the cab!

I'll bring the ski boat and swamp the rowboats on the Charles!

In further efforts to combat climate change, Cambridge, MA, will also ban the use of air conditioners by private business and residents of their city. The measure will have the added benefit of convincing the ignorant global warming skeptics as temperatures climb this summer. "Voila!" man made global warming.
