Not Even Warning Labels can Prevent Stupid People from being Stupid

I know this is an uncharitable thing to say, but sometimes it is hard to believe just how stupid people can be.

It’s why we have so many warning labels on our products. I guess to be more accurate, the warning labels are the result of our litigious society, where stupid people can sue others just because they are stupid.

At my day job, we have these 5 gallon plastic containers with sealable lids we use from time to time. On the container reads a warning – “do not place small children inside.”

Now why would they feel a need to go to the added expense of this? You got it. Because some moron placed their small child in one and something tragic most likely occurred. They subsequently sued the manufacturer, probably won a settlement, further burdening the company.

Yet even warning labels, which take up more space on a product than everything else combined, cannot prevent the dumb from being dumb. read more

Total Eclipse Proves what a Joke Solar Energy Is

Mass produced solar energy is a joke and a scheme to prey on the ignorance of tree huggers and the political correctness of government officials. Today’s solar eclipse proves it.

I’m not bashing solar energy as a whole. If one chooses to install panels on your property to supplement your electricity usage – knock yourself out. If it doesn’t break my leg or pick my pocket, I don’t care how anyone spends their own money. In other words – if what you do doesn’t harm me or confiscate my money, why should I care?

But there in lies the problem. The solar energy scam does both. It harms us all by creating a fallacy that we are endangering the Earth by the use of fossil fuels and that the cure is “renewable” energy like solar. Then the creators of this hoax con governments into confiscating our tax dollars and redistributing them to the solar industry by way of subsidies. Actually they don’t even need to “con” governments, for many of the renewable energy wackos work in government.

The left is predictable in their response. Well, they say, big oil and gas also receive massive government subsidies – so there. This is a disingenuous argument at best. It’s comparing apples to oranges. read more
