The Congregant

Environmentalism is a religion, Gaia is its goddess, and environmentalists are its congregants. As such they are accorded the religious freedom to persuade the rest of us to join them in their beliefs, but they have gone far beyond that. The United States is supposed to profess a separation of Church and State, but the Church of Gaia has taken over the Democrat party, and its catechism and article of faith have replaced the Constitution as the law of the land. An absolute belief in global warming, no drilling of oil or gas, clean air and clean water regulations so stringent they cripple business, no logging, no nuclear power, no building dams, no irrigating farmland, and many other restrictions the Democrats have happily loaded onto the body politic the better to strangle it. I talked to a Gaia congregant recently, and he seemed a reasonable fellow. He said:



I don’t believe in man-made gods

Who live where woodbines twine

Just think of it, what are the odds

That each could be Divine

No, there is but one God for me

And Gaia is Her name

It pains me much that you can’t see

That you are much to blame

For everything that isn’t fair

From fracking fossil fuels

And putting carbon in the air

Replacing horse and mules

With horrid greenhouse spewing gas

From engines no one needs

The Earth is dying and alas

She cries but no one heeds

The world was far a better place

When man intruded not

And time sped at a slower pace

As Gaia might allot

I hope and pray that you might well

Believe in Gaia God

I know that that is one tough sell

Like windmills on Cape Cod

But drilling oil and fracking gas

Will kill us all in time

As global warming comes to pass

And Al Gore notes your crime

Drill Baby Drill

President Obama and the Democrats are determined to keep us beholden to the Muslim Middle East. For years the Dems have prevented the drilling for oil in our own country, have prevented the building of nuclear power plants, have prevented the building of new refineries, all at the behest of the radical left environmental whackos, who want to return us to the twelfth century, convinced that we would all be better citizens if we depended on windmills for our power. Yet President Obama has no problem paying Brazil to drill in the Atlantic Ocean, paying Colombia to build refineries, and will be building nuclear power plants in the Middle East. What goes on here?



In our backyard we want no nukes

We’ll give it though to Mamelukes

The oil we have we will not drill

But pay for drilling in Brazil

Refineries we’ll build no more

Unless it’s in a foreign shore

Our shale deposits hold more gas

Than all the world yet still we pass

Why do we do these things at all

Why do we keep ourselves in thrall

To sheikhs and self styled Arab kings

Why do we bow and kiss their rings

For surely those in power know

That we could let the Mideast go

And use our coal and oil and gas

To kick those bastards in the ass

We’re told the reason we don’t drill

‘Twould harm the lizards, ocean krill

The caribou would be upset

And that is why we have to get

Our oil from folks who want us dead

We’ve put the gun to our own head

There’s something up somebody’s sleeve

That is the answer I believe

A Powerful Left

How did the radical left become so powerful? When did the people of the United States cede to a small group of radical left wing activists the right to decide what we ate, what we smoked, what kind of cars we drove, how much we weighed, or what we should think? How did the radical left get to decide that we should not drill for oil within our own borders but should remain enslaved to the Middle East? When did we give them the right to tell us we could not have electricity from nuclear power plants? What sort of society would allow a radical homosexual group to decide that kindergarten children should be introduced to the joys of homosexuality? Why have we allowed every tiny interest group that forms itself to tell our textbook publishers what they can and cannot say in their textbooks? Our entire lives, and the lives of our children and grandchildren, are governed by the wishes and desires of the radical left, who wish nothing but ill for the United States. The universities are filled with people of the radical left; the mainstream media is the mouthpiece of the radical left; the once great Democratic party, the party of Truman and JFK and Scoop Jackson and Daniel Patrick Moynihan, is now the captured love child of the radical left, represented in Congress by the likes of Maxine Waters and John Conyers, and in the radical Obama administration by the likes of Lloyd Clark and the now happily departed Van Jones. I grieve for the country I knew, a country that is no more.



The day is gone when Country stood

For God and truth and honor

But now we’re ruled by those who would

Bring harm and hurt upon her

I miss the day when free men ruled

Without three dozen czars

I miss the day when no one fooled

With stripes and field and stars

How did it come a tiny fish

Could cause the water flow

To farmers fields a distant wish

As whackos shouted No

How did it come we have the oil

To make our factories hum

But envirowhackos’ ceaseless toil

Keeps drilling rigs so mum

I miss the day when we could vote

For honest men and women

Who didn’t try to rock the boat

Till everyone was swimmin’

I know the good old days were not

As good as I remember

I just don’t like the ones we’ve got

And can’t wait for November

To run the lefties out of town

And bury them forever

And turning Lady Liberty’s crown

To democracy’s endeavor
