Maxy tells the Prez like it is
Dear Mr. O.,
First of all, I would like to thank you for the box of Milkbones; very thoughtful. But next time, how about sending a nice piece of prime rib - medium rare? Just throw it in a doggie bag and FedEx it.
Soooo, what are you doing about climate change? Sorry to put a flea in your ear, but according to Mr Gore, you've done bupkus. If you think the only important issue at present is health care....you are barking up the wrong tree. What good is being healthy if you can't go outside and have precious little to eat? You say, 'that won't happen during my administration'. True, but you can't bury this bone in your backyard, Mr.O. It is not going away. You have to, at least, start to implement change. Then the next guy who gets your job will take it further and the guy after him.
You can't just go to a summit every few years and walk away without resolving anything, just because China is being an arf-hole. China will always be an arf-hole. They don't know the meaning of the word co-operation, unless it involves trade. They still don't understand that the world operates on an.... 'I'll sniff your butt if you sniff mine'.....basis.
It ain't rocket science. Forget China and make an accord with the countries who are concerned about the increasingly violent climate changes. Implement some energy saving legislation, stiff penalties for greenhouse gas emissions and make people aware of and reduce their carbon footprints.
Now, here is where you really fall down on the job. You are calling for more drilling in American territories and bringing a doggone pipeline in from Canada. How is that going to encourage people to stop using fossil fuels or inspire anyone to invent an alternative fuel?
Ten woofs for Mr. Gore who says it better than anyone - and I quote:
"President Obama has never presented to the American people the magnitude of the climate crisis. He has not defended the science against the ongoing withering and dishonest attacks. Nor has he provided a presidential venue for the scientific community … to bring the reality of the science before the public.”
“… President Obama has thus far failed to use the bully pulpit to make the case for bold action on climate change. After successfully passing his green stimulus package, he did nothing to defend it when Congress decimated its funding. After the House passed cap and trade, he did little to make passage in the Senate a priority. Senate advocates — including one Republican — felt abandoned when the president made concessions to oil and coal companies without asking for anything in return. He has also called for a massive expansion of oil drilling in the United States, apparently in an effort to defuse criticism from those who argue speciously that “drill, baby, drill” is the answer to our growing dependence on foreign oil.“
So you think it's lame to let a dog talk to the president? Maybe you're right, but dogs don't stand on ceremony and we've never heard of protocol or etiquette. We just say and do what's on our minds. Bye now, I have to go lick my balls.
