Unringing the Bell
First we were told the atmosphere was in danger of imploding by the solar outburst from the deep inner sanctums of the sun. Next came climate change is going to cause the end of the world as we know it, unless we get on board and fully buy into the full spectrum of banning cow farts, eating non-caged eggs, plant based meats and synthetic foods, while going totally E because it’s good for the planet as we drive alone in electric vehicles while wearing masks to prevent the spread of the dangerous Chinese Virus.
Doesn’t all the “going green” hype seem a bit odd? There are various political barkers, hawkers and sellers of wares not fit for human consumption or use and that’s why I’ve stayed away from the media promotions which intend to sway us into believing that back in the good old days of Barney Rubble and Fred Flintstone man had all of his needs met using a rock, spear and a cave with its very own fire pit.
I say you can’t un-ring the bell or put spilled milk back in the cup and contrary to television advertising you can’t make a tornado ravaged house look like it never even happened – not really.
Change is the only constant in life and the quicker we adapt the less chance we won’t be left in the dark.
Stopping and/or banning the production and development of petroleum if left unchecked will lead to serious consequences. It makes about as much sense as aborting babies in the womb. Almost everything we have and use is a product of petroleum. Rubber, plastics, vinyl, electronics, appliances, clothing, food and health care products and supplements are all produced from petroleum. Computers, cell phones, boots and shoes, pampers and depends, plus a whole lot more all come from petroleum, even those plastic single use bags that are no longer fashionable here in Colorado – unless you pay 10 cents apiece for them.
For every restriction the general public is hurt right in the pocketbook (eBank Accounts) and we are redirected to an alternative which keeps us dependent on and putting money into the coffers of unseen entities which end up making the rich even richer.
Politicians are not the answer. When you hear “it’s for your own good” you can rest assured that it’s not. When a representative of government says “I’m here to help” or “I feel your pain”, they are not and they do not. When you continue electing sub-marginal candidates into political office, do not expect anything but sub-marginal results.
Isn’t doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results the very definition of insanity? Those who do really are dumber than a box of rocks. – RTM

Okay: you have the right to write, and I can even admire you for the effort. You’re a “truckmaster”; I’m an inveterate nitpicker…if you check the word “sanctions” in your first paragraph, you’ll realize that the correct word is “sanctums.” Cheers.
