American Elephants


Saving the Planet — at Freedom’s Expense by American Elephant

What is it, anyway, that is so important that Nancy Pelosi had to slam her gavel down and shut down the House of Representatives silencing debate and prohibiting a vote on increasing America’s domestic energy supply? What is more urgent than bringing relief to Americans suffering from staggering gas prices?

A self-serving book tour naturally!

You didn’t know Pelosi had a book out? That’s ok, neither does anyone else.

While you and I fork over $4 and more a gallon, cutting back our driving, pinching our pennies — while Republicans speak by candlelight, sans cameras and microphones, to spectators in the House gallery about the need to bring down gas prices — Premiere Pelosi is hitting the bookstores, running the talk show circuit, promoting a book she “wrote” for little girls — presumably teaching them to grow up to be insufferable Stalinist dictators like herself.

The book, Know Your Power: A Message to America’s Daughters, is ranked #782 on Amazon’s bestsellers list. For perspective, that makes it approximately 55 times less popular than Tori Spelling’s autobiography.

Polls show 75% of Americans support off-shore drilling. But Pelosi can’t be bothered with little things like “Democracy” and representing the American people — she is saving the planet!

Ring a bell?

It ought to. I’ve pointed out several times the warnings by President Vaclav Klaus of the Czech Republic, that environmentalism is the new totalitarianism — that there is no aspect of your life the State cannot control when “saving the planet” is the goal. He’s not kidding. I’m not kidding.

We got a preview of it last Friday with Pelosi’s Stalinist tactics.

Strongly stated, but true.
