This Saturday, you will be able to spot the worshipers of The Goracle by the darkness of their homes. If they can get enough people to drink the Kool-Aid and turn off their lights from 8:30 to 9:30 Saturday night, they'll be able to achieve their dream of making America look like North Korea.
In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Unlike any election in history, it is not about what country you’re from, but instead, what planet you’re from. VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.
A more constructive use of your time would be to celebrate Human Achievement Hour.
This week CEI [the Competitive Enterprise Institute] announced the creation of Human Achievement Hour (HAH) to be celebrated at 8:30pm on March 28th 2009 (the same time and date of Earth Hour).
Our press release described ways people might celebrate the achievements of humanity such as eating diner, seeing a film, driving around, keeping the heat on in your home — all things that Earth Hour celebrators, presumably, should be refraining from. In the cheekiest manner, we claimed that anyone not foregoing the use of electricity in that hour is, by default, celebrating the achievements of human beings.
Only the liberals would view total darkness as an achievement and as a vote to put us back centuries before Edison's invention. I plan on keeping all the lights on in my home during that time. Hell, I may even turn on the Christmas lights as a middle finger to the enviro-Marxists that would have all of us living like Ed Begley Jr., driving vegetable oil powered lawn mowers and drinking our own urine.
Nothing sums up liberalism better than sitting in the dark, wallowing in deluded self-righteousness.
