Nature Must Be Punished, Look at the Mess in California!

Nature must not be allowed to do what she does best: Care for life!

Humanoids’ ignorance of Nature’s defense mechanisms hasn’t improved in 12,000 years! Take California’s wildfires, for example. Tackling the wildfires has become strictly a Freudian affair. Freud said:

“Against the dreaded external world one can only defend oneself by some kind of turning away from it, if one intends to solve the task by oneself. There is, indeed, another and a better path: that of becoming a member of human community, and, with the help of a technique guided by science, going over to attack against nature and subjecting her to human will.”

Way to go Sigmund!

Sigmund Freud, 1938

Nature is viewed as a malignant force to overcome. Humanoids fight nature trying their damnedest to prevent her from doing what she does best: Sustaining life!

Wildfires are an indispensable tool in Nature’s cycle-of-life toolbox. But, they have decided that the fires must not be allowed to burn naturally.

How dare she? Line up the crews. If 2 thousand firefighters aren’t enough, then get 5, 10, 20,000, if necessary! If you need even more, import them from half way across the world. Mobilize the National Guard!

Nature’s cycles of life have been ruining our lifestyles. No wonder the Government declared war on “evil” wildfires, a century ago!

If you couldn’t build your log cabin in the forest, on the riverbank, or on the beach, where you want to live, what good is Nature to you? Who needs nature, if she misbehaves?

If nature can’t provide you with enough rainwater when you need to put the fires out, or cleanse the air so that the smug doesn’t choke your kids, why should you let her go on?

Why hasn’t she provided you with enough carbon sinks to remove the greenhouse gases from the atmosphere to prevent you from boiling? What good is she?

Come to think of it, why is this stinking planet so small? Why didn’t nature create a planet 10, 20, 30 even a 100 times bigger, and cleaner?

Nature has failed to provide you with the “perfect” planet. She is hampering your progress. She must be punished. And if that doesn’t work, she must not be allowed to go on. If she continues like this, you don’t need her.

No Good For Living!

You build a dream log home in the woods; invest considerable time and money selecting the right refrigerator-freezer, freezer, microwave oven, coffeemaker, juice extractor/blender, bread maker, toaster, dishwasher, clothes washer, clothes dryer, state-of-the-art lighting, 50″ digital TV, set top box, DVD, VCR, projector, dehumidifier, ceiling fans, heating system, cooling system, bleeding-edge sound-surround stereo system, bathroom TV, whirlpool/Spa, floodlights, pool pump, water filters, waterbed heater, hair dryer, floor heater, dehumidifier, humidifier, ionizer, air filter, furnace, cooler … it takes months and months of planning, spending, traveling. Imagine life without the SUV! And then comes the evacuation order… the next day it’s all over. Mother nature has consumed everything. You finally decide this nature just isn’t conducive to lifestyle. This planet isn’t good for living!

Freudian Assault Against Nature Syndrome

Having reached the peak of Freudian Assault Against Nature Syndrome, there are only two courses of action available to humanoids:

(i) Look for a new planet, one that is a lot bigger and much cleaner than this “sh*tpit.”

(ii) Create a new, more disciplined nature, one that doesn’t bitch with you and knows how to work effectively, cleaning up the piles you leave behind.

When you’re through with Sci-Fi, then sober up to this fact: “In the humanoids’ declared war against nature, whichever side ‘wins,’ we will [all] be the losers!

I’m a War President, Not a Weatherman!

Posted by msrb on June 21, 2008

The Best Caption Competition Winners:

- There’s no war here.

- Don’t trouble me with national emergencies, I have a war to fight.

- Our troops need all the money we can send them to fight the enemy over there.

- Don’t be sissies! This is nothing like the 1993 deluge.

Midwest Flood Victims Feel Misled by Feds

“They all told us, `The levees are good. You can go ahead and build,”‘ said Parks, who did not buy flood coverage because her bank no longer required it. “We had so much confidence in those levees.”

“People put all their hopes in those levees, and when they do fail, the damage is catastrophic,” said Paul Osman, the National Flood Insurance Program coordinator for Illinois. “New Orleans is the epitome; a lot of those people didn’t even realize they were in a floodplain until the water was up to their roofs.”

Who Cares?

“We reported to the president in ’94 that the levee system was in disarray, the levees were not high enough to take care of any potential problem. People didn’t understand their flood risk and there wasn’t good co-ordination across federal, state and local governments,” said Gerald Galloway, a professor of engineering and flood control expert.

“The same thing applies today,” Galloway said. “It’s amazing that in the face of [Hurricane] Katrina and now this particular challenge that we continue to relearn the same lessons.”

Galloway’s recommendations to improve the levee system were basically ignored. He said that he’s experiencing much the same response now from officials as in 1993.
