“GARBAGE” – The Way Some Feel About The U.S.A.

Fact Or Fiction!

Referring to her Green New Deal last week during an appearance at the South By Southwest Conference & Festivals, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was applauded for saying, “I think all of these things sound radical compared to where we are, but where we are is not a good thing. And this idea of like, ten percent better than garbage, it shouldn’t be what we settle for.”

How could anyone living in the United States, past or present, call it “garbage”? If it’s that bad, why are so many still walking hundreds, even thousands of miles, to get here?

Maybe miss Ocasio-Cortez and her friends ought to trade places with some of the families fleeing the oppression of a socialistic/communistic country for a year or so and then come back and tell us how great it is.

There’s got to be a hidden agenda for these people like Ocasio-Cortez to be making and agreeing with such outlandish comments. And you surely must realize there is a hidden agenda!

So far, every Democrat (Socialist) running for the 2020 Presidential election has gone on record supporting Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal.

It sounds like “utopia” in a bottle just waiting to be uncorked and poured out like an elixir able to solve all of the problems that are destroying America as we know it today!

The truth is, you haven’t begun to see destruction of a country until you let socialism, and it’s big brother communism, gain control!

Below is a great insightful article exposing another piece of the Green New Deal for what it really is.

The Green New Plan Is Irresponsible

By |February 26th, 2019

Developing nations need abundant, scalable, reliable, affordable, and flexible energy. The Green New Plan (GNP) being proposed by New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) for intermittent renewable electricity, is most likely unaffordable even for “rich” nations, is an irresponsible plan to run every economic platform across the globe. Many of the world’s inhabitants survive in deplorable economic and living conditions where the GNP cannot work.

Infrastructure projects in the U.S. are not controlled by the Federal Government, nor State Governments, nor Local Governments. They are under total control of organizations such as NIMBY, BANANA, SOBBY, NAMBI, and NIABY. Thus, the GNP idea for a “super grid” to distribute intermittent electricity is a stupid idea that has no chance of ever happening.

For those not familiar with the various acronyms for organizations that put up opposition to proposed developments in their local area and initiate a herd of lawsuits to stop or delay projects for eternity, here they are:

  • NIMBY – “Not In My Back Yard

  • BANANA – “Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything”

  • SOBBY – “Some Other Bugger’s Back Yard”

  • NAMBI – “Not Against My Business or Industry”

  • NIABY – “Not In Anyone’s Backyard”

The ensuing lawsuits from the above powerful organizations present significant infrastructure hurdles even for worthwhile projects, and insurmountable hurdles for bogus projects as they rightfully target pork barrel projects from progressing.

Further, any “super grid” will be unable to support the two prime movers that have done more for the cause of globalization than any other: the diesel engine and the jet turbine. Both get their fuels from oil. Without transportation – there is no commerce.

Road and air travel dominate most people’s lives in industrialized countries and emerging markets. Airlines are conducting more than 100,000 flights a day around the world. Commercial aviation, with 23,000 commercial airplanes worldwide that has been accommodating 4 billion passengers annually. Cruise liners, each of which consumes 80,000 gallons of fuel daily, have been accommodating more than 25 million passengers annually worldwide.

Electricity alone, especially intermittent electricity from renewables, has not, and will not, run the economies around the world, as electricity alone is unable to support the energy demands of the military, airlines, cruise ships, supertankers, container shipping, trucking infrastructures, and our space program. Without transportation – there is no commerce – since globalized road and air travel dominate most people’s lives.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) now pays Russia to Uber our astronauts & scientists to and from the International Space Station. The intermittent electricity from wind, solar, or from batteries and storage units made from exotic materials like cobalt and lithium CANNOT supply the thousands of products from petroleum that are demanded by every transportation infrastructure, electricity generation, medications, cooling, heating, manufacturing, agriculture, and virtually all the products that are the basis of everyone’s standard of living across the globe have led to reduced infant mortality, extended lifespans, and allowed the movement of goods and people anywhere in the world.

Land requirements for wind and solar are huge compared to the land area needed for electricity from zero emission nuclear. To generate the same electricity, wind needs almost 100 times the land area and solar requires 8 times the area of a nuclear plant. To make matters worse, the renewable sites will need wind and sun which is mostly not available continuously and uninterruptable around the country.

Having a “super grid” for supplying intermittent electricity, as proposed by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her Green New Plan, is a socially and economically irresponsible idea.

Please pass this information on to everyone you know who cares about saving America from falling into the hands of the socialist/communist leaders many have wittingly or unwittingly been elected to the highest offices in our nation!

May God continue to extend His gracious hand on the U.S.A. and continue to bless this great nation in spite of those living and prospering here who choose to call it “garbage”!

Instead of cursing Ocasio-Cortez and her followers, let us begin to pray that the Sovereign God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who created the universe and all that is in it and on it, will change their hearts and minds and help them see and receive the amazing Light of His Son, Jesus Christ, Savior of the world!

See you next week for more Wisdom Matters!
