Too bad, so sad. They didn’t think of what a GORGEOUS opportunity it would be to take advantage of the “greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.” Hey, this is a capitalistic society … why are moneymakers so late to the game and so deluded about it?
Snake Oil salesmen have been around FOREVER … and I don’t really see the issue with taking advantage if no one’s health is at risk. Climate change is no hoax … notwithstanding – what asshats for failing to make a buck!
Face it, GM, Chrysler, Ford … those guys missed out when Carter was President during the other fuel crisis. What the hay? They had ALL THIS TIME to use capitalism to their advantage. Guess what? GIANT FAIL. Yes, I think this is why the President said ..buck the f*** up! Get it together, you had ALL these years, and you refused to take advantage of what was right in front of your face … it really was RIGHT THERE.
The same holds true now. But, instead, just like then … corporations (Chamber of Commerce is GUILTY) is whining, and crying, and boo hooing…AND ignoring the fact that they could BANK ON THIS GREEN ‘BULLS***”
Are they really that stupid?
The answer is yes. Against their better interests, they lost American innovation, allowed the Dutch to build a better levee (with the result of far too many deaths), and woe is them decided against building a better …. whatever.
Such is the cost of being an idiot.
Capitalism is the foundation of American society … the Rockefellers’ knew it … and because of greed, and misplaced outrage, it’s not changing. And, it’s no ones fault but theirs … but the COST is ours.
Truer words than this have not been spoken for a while: “What I want to see is a stable nation wherein east respects west, north respects south, where farms are held in the same esteem as the merchants and longshoremen along our coasts who move their produce from port to port, nation to nation. I want to see innovation return to the United States in the form of revitalized industry”
Let’s do this please, and let’s not be jackasses about it.
