Am I over the edge here? Well, I don't know... you tell me...
Jones' job is to create "green jobs." Really, who wants to fight against clean energy and new jobs? I say, if you can create a business that is good for our environment and create jobs right along with it, more power to you! Of course, the fact that the government has to do the job creation leads me to believe that it's a money-losing proposition, but I digress.
Based on some of the things Jones has said, I have to question his mental capacity. And I quote, "You cannot beat global warming unless you understand that 40% of greenhouse gases are nout coming from cars they're coming from buildings and 75% of greenhouse gases are coming from the cities and you cannot green the cities unless you green the ghetto, and you cannot green the ghetto in 2009 without giving Pookie a job. So... that's a new environmental movement... Give Pookie a job! Beat this recession and global warming at the same time. Beat pollution and poverty at the same time. And recognize the true genius of Barack Obama is that the first black president is the first green president. He's not just trying to save you - he's going to save the whole wide world!"
Ooookaaaay. Not sure just who Pookie is, but I'm thinking give him a job if it will shut this guy up. What the --? Anyway, there's more. That first quote was just to get you in a happier mood.
Jones sees his job in a very important light. He's not just some grunt who is going to find clean jobs for Pookie, no siree... He says, "This is deeper than a solar panel. I want you to have a clean energy revolution... but if you stop there, if all you do is have a clean energy revolution, you wouldn't have done anything. I'm going to tell you why. If all we do is take out the dirty power in a system and just replace it with some clean stuff, put a solar panel on top of this system, but we don't deal with how we are consuming water, we don't deal with how we are treating our brother and sister species, we don't deal with the way we treat each other, if that's not a part of this movement, let me tell you what you'll have. This is all you'll have: you'll have solar powered bulldozers; you'll have solar powered buzz saws; and biofueled bombers and we'll be fighting wars over lithium for the batteries instead of oil for the engines. And we'll still have a dead planet! This movement is deeper than the solar panel! Don't stop there! Don't stop there! No, we are going to change the whole system! We're going to change the whole thing! We're not going to put a battery in a broken system! We want a new system!"
Huh. A new system, eh? A new system as to how we treat each other, how we treat our "brother and sister species..." What IS that, anyway? Clearly, this is an angry gentleman. He doesn't like our system, that much is certain. He has made comments about how we have the "wrong agricultural system," too. What did he mean by that? Well... here's what he said, "White polluters and the white environmentalists are essentially scaring poison into the people of color." Ah!!!! I see now. It's all about skin color. But don't worry -- he's not ONLY concerned with the black people... He also said, "And our Native American sisters and brothers who were pushed and bullied and mistreated and shoved into all the land we didn't want, where it was all hot and windy, well guess what! Renewable energy. Guess what! Solar industry. Guess what! Wind industry. They now own and control 80% of the renewable energy resources. No more broken treaties. No more broken treaties. Give them the wealth. Give them the wealth. Give them the dignity. Give them the respect that they deserve. No justice on stolen land. We owe them a debt."
Yes, he likes to repeat himself. But it seems that the "new system" they want is one which redistributes the wealth. Who could have known that this was what Barack Obama had in mind? It would have been impossible to say before the election, right? I mean, of course he SAID he wanted to redistribute the wealth to Joe the plumber, but... who knew he meant it?
On August 31, the New York Times ran an article titled, "Justice Department to Recharge Civil Rights Enforcement." According to the article:
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is reshaping the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division by pushing it back into some of the most important areas of American political life, including voting rights, housing, employment, bank lending practices and redistricting after the 2010 census.
As part of this shift, the Obama administration is planning a major revival of high-impact civil rights enforcement against policies, in areas ranging from housing to hiring, where statistics show that minorities fare disproportionately poorly. President George W. Bush's appointees had discouraged such tactics, preferring to focus on individual cases in which there is evidence of intentional discrimination.
So - we have a green jobs dude who who is dedicated to making sure the white folks don't achieve - after all, they're just busy scaring poison into everybody, so they don't deserve to have any wealth. The minorities, though -- and especially those Native Americans -- THEY will finally be getting what they deserve after having been bullied and shoved and pushed... wait. How old ARE these folks? They must be nearing 150! And here I thought that the old people were going to be getting the ax in the new health care system. Guess they're planning to give them all the wealth instead. Who knew?
And then we have Eric Holder, who is going to make sure that people are playing nice -- even when there's no evidence that there was any not nice... I guess it's important to just breathe down people's necks a bit, just for purposes of job creation?
