White House Dossier Signs Up for Flat Earth Society

by Keith Koffler on June 25, 2013, 7:25 pm

With his usual contempt for those who disagree wit him, President Obama today said those who don’t see the light on the need to meet the “challenge” of global warming belong to the Flat Earth Society, adding that they appeared to have their heads stuck in that same flat earth.

Have a look at the president who can barely stand you:

So much for Obama’s “charm” tour – his recent unserious and mostly aborted effort to build bridges to Republicans. They really dig being called idiots.

But this Flat Earth Society sounded interesting to me, and I immediately inquired about joining.

I found out that the Flat Earth Society – as Obama suggests – includes people who agree there may be a human contribution to climate change, but aren’t sure enough that this is such a pressing or proven problem that we need move quickly in a draconian way, attacking a weak economy and harming the poor and the middle class.

These Flat Earthers, I discovered, are aware that the earth hasn’t warmed in 15 years and all the previous models constructed by members of The Round Earth Society about how the climate was supposed to behave turned out to be wrong.

Round Earthers like Obama are also counseling vehicle fuel mileage standards that will result in lighter cars that will kill thousands of people. So it appears that the Flat Earthers – who tell me they also remember the global cooling scare three decades ago – want to not only save the economy, but save lives too.

As you can imagine, in the end I signed White House Dossier up as a member. I’ve also put out feelers to The Association of Unenlightened Neanderthals and the Union of Knuckle Draggers to inquire about membership in their groups as well.

BTW, here’s a golden oldie, some enviro contempt from a couple of years ago that backfired on this particular Round Earther.

Welcome to the group. As a lifelong member of the Flat Earth Society (or as we call ourselves, the FESsers) it’s very rewarding to know that our numbers are not dwindling as the MSM implies.
The round earth people are to be pitied for their mistaken beliefs; after all common sense tells us that if the earth were round, we wouldn’t be able to stand up without falling down, cars would roll off the street, and buildings would topple over on themselves..
Goodness, a round earth, how silly.

Personally, as srdem notes, I’m worried my children are going to fall off this round earth they’re talking about.

Retract both of those. As the dems like to say, “I was quoted out of context”. Actually, I’ve had a really bad day and I’m crankier than usual. I was doing a plumbing job, I’m not a plumber, my wife wants it to look professional when it’s done and if I keep whining I’ll be able to run for public office.

I was going to join the Flat Earth Society but Hank Johnson warned that it could tip and capsize. Lucky for me, three men in a tub offered me a boat ride.

srdem65 June 25, 2013 at 8:52 pm

Please reconsider your decision. Hank is one of those sad round-earthers who think that islands are like cruise ships floating in the sea.
When the actress, Tina Fey, pretended to be Sarah Palin and said she could see Russia from her house as a joke, she didn’t realize how stipid that sounded. Of course, if you look West from Alaska you’ll see Russia. Why? Because the Earth is flat.

So, give us a second chance. We love having new people.

The most significant contribution to “global warming” is collective BHO and other liberal oral flatulence. This is the result of belches conversing among themselves as to whether they should use routine avenues or exercise the alternative escape by which they become “stinkers.” The problem arises due to the belches losing direction because the opposing exits of BHO and liberals are so indistinguishable the belches cannot decide and take the typical “easy” choice.
Open flames are discouraged in the presence of liberals.

Such concentrated evil in one human being is both amazing and frightening. His biggest regret in life right now is that he cannot give vent to all of the evil and rage that swirls inside of him against this Country and its citizens by giving free reign to his supressed bloodlust and ordering mass executions of all of his perceived enemies by decree. But make no mistake folks if he could he would in the blink of an eye. Truly Dictator Obama is cut from the same sinister cloth as a Stalin, Mao, or Hitler.

I read recently that 40% of the ‘carbon pollution’ in this country comes from electricity generating power plants. In an unrelated story, the federal government continues to encourage use of all- electric vehicles.

Reply

A.J. June 25, 2013 at 10:43 pm

No, no!! You don’t understand. Electricity is “CLEAN”. We don’t even need to THINK about where it COMES from. In fact, in a perfect “progressive” world, we don’t need to think at all ’cause our leaders will do that for us. And if you keep having insights like this, Eric Holder will have to do something to you that he won’t be able to remember when questioned about it by cingress.

ArnoldLayne June 25, 2013 at 11:48 pm

and BTW, at the same time, we’re supposed to ‘conserve electricity’ by installing mercury-filled bulbs, keeping the indoor temperature uncomfortably warm, and by letting Pacific Gas & Electric install monitoring and controlling equipment in our homes.
And at work, my employer, being a good ‘greenie California’ corporation, turns up thermostat on hot afternoon, making my top floor, West- facing office, uncomfortably warm. Liberal utopia is just great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can add a bitter clinger to the membership, Keith. I actually attended a talk by one of the climate panel scientists years ago. Wish I was bold enough to ask questions of her. Basically they created a model of the entire earth’s climate and the hockey stick graph printed out of the computer. No chance for model error there…

Perfect. The very definition of Arbitrary Assumption: in the absence of fact, if enough people repeat it, it must be true. Only Obama could use belittling falsehood to perpetuate an even bigger lie this flatly. The obvious case is the Global Warmer’s are not Copernicus or Galileo, rather the oppressive church. Anything not from them will be heresy. (Not bashing the church…just historical perspective.) If there is one thing we have learned from history, it’s that we didn’t learn a damn thing.

I think the debate about Global warming should be shifted to see just who is doing the greenhouse emissions. From what I can see after a brief search is China does 23.50% of CO2 emissions vs. the USA’s 18.27%. Then I compared the size of the GDP. The USA is twice the size. So at that rate China should be emitting half of what the USA is doing or just 9% vs their present 23% So with Obama’s special gift of speech he should learn Chinese and go over there and get them to get their emissions under control. After all he is talking about Global warming not just warming of the Western Hemisphere.

Global Warming is still a theory but Mr Obama wants people to accept it as fact. Even though there is data to show otherwise.
