Earth Day

I remember the first Earth Day, back in 1970.
It started innocently enough as a well-intentioned, harmless hippie holiday. People would go to the park, bask in the sunshine and contemplate ways to generate less waste and rid their environment of trash and pollution.
That was before it got hijacked by the Cult of Gaia and the oh-so-emotional purveyors of the junk science of man-caused global warming.
Somewhere along the line, people stopped worshipping the Creator and decided to deify His creation.
Today, it’s just another day to pity the well-meaning folks who think their green lifestyle somehow offsets pollution generated by Third World countries. And another day to hate and resist those who would wreck our economy, destroy our quality of life, and enrich themselves on the basis of the myth of climate change.
And, oh by the way, Earth Day (April 22) is also Vladimir Lenin's birthday. What an odd coincidence. Just like the Oklahoma City bombing and the Columbine massacre were only coincidentally on Adolf Hitler's birthday.
