-- Elizabeth Warren
Elizabeth Warren is an American bankruptcy law expert, Harvard Law School professor, and Democratic Party candidate in the 2012 United States Senate election in Massachusetts.
Rolling Stone recently published an article called "Global Warming's Terrifying New Math." It's long. Probably so long you won't read it all. But, you should.
You see, we're doomed. It's too late. We're on an ineluctable collision course with our own destruction thanks to corporate greed and human apathy.
Fun stuff, huh? But, you should still read it. Look into the mirror of this article and see the world we've created. That is, see the world we're about to destroy.
I live on the coast (the West Coast, the best coast) and I'd prefer not to have to swim to work, take a canoe to the grocery store, or float to my neighborhood cafe. Nevertheless, the waters will rise. If I'm lucky, I'll be dead before the impact is devastating. Luckily, I have no children that I've burdened with this albatross called Earth. Yes, I'm lucky.
Some of you aren't, though. Yet, we all continue down the path. More cars, bigger cars, more wars for oil, less corporate regulation. What could possibly go wrong?
Well, read the article. Sure, you'll doubt the claims, question the math, assume science will find a deus ex machina to save the day. Or, it may rattle your cage just enough. Just enough to walk instead of drive. To take a train instead of drive. To write your representatives in Washington DC and demand some action. Or, like me, to hunker down and plan our retirement on a hill somewhere so we can watch the rising tide.
Depressingly yours, Todd X.

I see this ad everywhere. It's following me.
We all know the internet, AKA the Google hive-mind, knows everything we do, tracks everywhere we go, and puts up advertisements that speak directly to our deepest darkest cravings and anxieties.
Clearly, the Google thinks I'm fat. The Google wants me to work out, stop eating chocolate-covered grahams, take the stairs, order skinny lattes, and cut dark liquor out of my liquid diet. But, it won't tell me how to take the first step until I click on the aforementioned ad. The Google wants its money. Its coffers are hungry.
So, you see, we're not that different. It's about hunger. The Google has wants and desires, and I need cheesecake fed to me intravenously on a regular basis. We should really just hug it out and go to In-N-Out together.
But, not until it stops calling me fat. Words hurt. Now pass me a cupcake.

Yes, America. This is the Gay Agenda. We read, eat fatty desserts, live in expensive and beautiful cities, keep up with the latest technology, wear fabulous shoes, vote for the most intelligent candidates, and, if the mood is right, have a stiff drink to soothe our worries about the other 90% of you out there.
If this isn't a Neo-Con's worst nightmare, then I'm not influential about Drinks and Pork either!
