Do' H

RFK, Jr., (for you non-Kennedy family aficionados, that's Bobby Kennedy's boy) when he is not flying around the world in his private jet to deliver his finger wagging lectures to us wasteful slobs, likes to write hand wringing opinion pieces.

In Virginia, the weather also has changed dramatically. Recently arrived residents in the northern suburbs, accustomed to today's anemic winters, might find it astonishing to learn that there were once ski runs on Ballantrae Hill in McLean, with a rope tow and local ski club. Snow is so scarce today that most Virginia children probably don't own a sled. But neighbors came to our home at Hickory Hill nearly every winter weekend to ride saucers and Flexible Flyers.

In those days, I recall my uncle, President Kennedy, standing erect as he rode a toboggan in his top coat, never faltering until he slid into the boxwood at the bottom of the hill. Once, my father, Atty. Gen. Robert Kennedy, brought a delegation of visiting Eskimos home from the Justice Department for lunch at our house. They spent the afternoon building a great igloo in the deep snow in our backyard. My brothers and sisters played in the structure for several weeks before it began to melt. On weekend afternoons, we commonly joined hundreds of Georgetown residents for ice skating on Washington's C&O Canal, which these days rarely freezes enough to safely skate.

Meanwhile, Exxon Mobil and its carbon cronies continue to pour money into think tanks whose purpose is to deceive the American public into believing that global warming is a fantasy.

As of Feb. 7, 2010:
Historic snow storm shuts down federal government. [Source]

The "federal government" for you who are geographically unaware functions in DC.

Back up in that first opinion piece the first two comments are stellar:

#1, named GA, writes,
one snow fall and and you spout off negative comments about RJK jr??? Get your facts straight. No where does he say it will never snow again. Also, he gets his facts from scientists just like the rest of us who enjoy living and want to protect this Earth from ignorant or non-caring people like yourself.

Write an article of importance rather than attacking someone who is spending their life doing good for the rest of us and this planet.

I suppose you think global warming is fake. If so, why do people die when they run their car in their garage? Take billions of cars and think about what it's doing to this planet.

#2, anonymous, responds,
Your car produces Carbon Monoxide not Carbon Dioxide. Carbon Monoxide kills you when you run your car in your garage. Carbon Dioxide which true believers like GA believe cause imaginary global warming is produced when people including GA breathe. RFK, Jr. is a pompous rich do-gooder who couldn't get a real job if his life depended on it. He probably didn't even write the article Mr. Freddoso quoted but in the long line of Kennedy frauds had someone else ghost write it. Gawd help us all from the Kennedy's and their ilk.

May I point out that car exhausts (and breathing) produce carbon dioxide in far greater quantities than they do Carbon monoxide (otherwise it wouldn't be safe for me to use my bike in traffic).

Of course, to jump from that to "driving my car causes global warming" is something else entirely. Only there's no way you can get the same feeling of achievement from driving from my house to the church in ten minutes that I can get from doing it that fast on the bike!

Plus I don't have to spend a grand insuring the bike. Saving the planet or saving money? Sometimes you don't have to choose!

I'm just coming in from shoveling out my Pickup truck.
A record snow fell, and we have more coming.

You know, if these global warming fanatics would just look at the last 30 years of winters they would see an up and down kind of weather thing.

They drive me crazy.

But it's the same with evolution.

if you say, "Hey, i don't believe I evolved from an ape."
They laugh at you. they may acknowledge God, but they will still shake their heads if you don't believe the earth evolved from a Big bang.

I don't know much about RFK's son, but he seems to more like Ted than Bobby. I'm just sayin'.
