Because total dickishness should be recognized.


In what has become a tedious ritual, Blogging Tory Paul E. Marek will join his fellow Canadian conservatives in celebrating WWF Earth Hour by, as he puts it:

... turning on the lights, driving around town, and enjoying modern technology ..."

for no reason other than to be ornery, obstinate and diasgreeable with people who actually give a crap about the planet we live on.

We look forward to Paul's similarly contrarian attitude when we here in the Not-Batshit-Crazy-o-sphere celebrate the upcoming "Don't Stick Your Head in a Microwave" Day, followed by National "Don't Slam Your Wang in a Car Door" Month.



THE CRIPPLINGLY CHILDISH DOUCHEBAGGERY BEGINS
: Here's Blogging Tory "Iceman":

I always look forward to Earth Hour every year, as an opportunity to burn as much electricity and fossil fuels as possible. Use extra toilet paper on every wipe, leave my car idling in the driveway, crank Eve of Destruction by Barry McGuire on the stereo, flush the toilet as much as possible even when not necessary, and so on and so forth. If other people are going to be slacking off, the rest of us need to pick up our work boots and make up the difference...

If there are people out there that are going to do this whole blackout routine, then the rest of us need to pull up the slack. We need to make up the difference, such that when the eggheads review the results from the power grid, there is no measurable impact.

Next up: BTer Diogenes Borealis:

Read the whole thing, and then join me tonight in turning on all the lights during Earth Hour to show your defiance against this ridiculous mass mania.

"Moose and Squirrel":

Take the ‘LIGHTS ON’ pledge for Earth Hour!

I'm guessing I could go on but, really, what's the point?

Seems that the Iceman is joining in...

If they feel that Earth Hour is stupid, here is a simple solution: Just carry on as you would normally.


Instead these twatwaffles would like you to know how stupid they are by making noise with power tools and such... Let's hope that these children wear safety equipment, I would not want to see the emergency rooms engorged by these morons drilling into their bodies...

This cycle of outrage has got to stop. They're only doing this because they know it pisses other people off. I mean, it's the same thing, every year now.

You have to laugh at them or ignore them, not yell at them and give them extra publicity.

...Or round 'em up and gas them and use their corpses for biofuel.

Kelseigh said...

I disagree, Ti-Guy. The more publicity the better, if only to inform family, neighbours and potential employers just what sort of childish, petty idiots with poor impulse control they're dealing with.

I'm sure the employers especially would be interested in such things.

Ti-Guy said...

Most of them are anonymous. The few who aren't don't have friends, family or employers.

Over on Facebook, Kory Teneycke is applauding this move...
Seems that Gerry Nicholls approves of similar wasteful and childish behaviours enough to post it about it on his page.....

Maybe we should proclaim a no driving off cliffs hour...

When is "International Don't Hit Yourself in the Head with a Hammer Day"?
I think we should pick a day soon and make sure to publicize among the Blogging Tories and point out that all the liberals and progressives think its a great idea not to hit yourself in the head with a hammer.

Unfortunately for them, the lights aren't on upstairs, if you know what I mean and I think you do. No amount of "let's turn the lights on!" will illuminate the dead bulbs in the rusty sockets of their collective brains.

We need to make up the difference, such that when the eggheads review the results from the power grid, there is no measurable impact.

So... he just admitted it would make a difference or a "measurable impact."

I thought that the whole point of Earth Hour was that it made no difference.

Let's make a difference by making a difference to the people making a difference in a difference we don't want to make?

Brilliant.
