As Glenn Thrush of Politico put in a Twitter post shortly after the tornado this week, “It is striking that Oklahoma’s senators are 1) a federal spending skeptic and 2) global warming denier.” And Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse took to the Senate floor shortly afterward to chastise his Republican colleagues for denying global warming. In fact, he spent 15 minutes mocking those states that seek federal assistance in the wake of natural disasters.
The only problem with Whitehouse's dramatic posturing is that global warming is not the reason for any of the issues he cited. Even the scientists who were paid lots of money to convince us of global warming exposed in a series of emails a couple years ago that the entire notion of global warming is a hoax.
Yet politicians continue to insist that it's real. They have to, though, because how else can they justify increasing our taxes and controlling our ways of life? And disasters like the Oklahoma tornado or "Hurricane" Sandy (which was not even a category one storm when it hit the shore) are the perfect crises to justify liberal politicians' extremist agenda to oversee everything we do while they travel in their private jets and ride around in their chauffeur-driven SUVs funded by our ever increasing tax dollars.
Besides the fact that hurricane and tornado activity is actually down in comparison to past years, maybe we should look at any such disaster not as a consequence of how we treat the environment, but rather as a reminder that God is ultimately in charge, not us.
No amount of taxes or legislation can ever change that fact, no matter how hard the liberals try to deny it.
