Just rambling thoughts about anything that happens to be on my mind and that usually isn't much!

Chicken Little and Foxy Loxy

Do you remember the story of Chicken Little?  (A refresher here for those who may have forgotten how the story goes) ...  Chicken Little is eating lunch one day under a big oak tree.  During her lunch an acorn falls off the tree and hits her on the head.  She is convinced that the sky is falling and runs to tell her friends.  Most begin to believe her because she does have a bump on her head .. pure evidence that she has been hit from above.  There's Henny Penny, Ducky Lucky, Turkey Lurkey and many others who are wailing as much as she, about the sky falling.
 

Then along comes Foxy Loxy!  Now here's a character that uses the situation to gain control over the group and get his next lunch.  (OK, now in today's political correct world, I'm sure they have left out that last part ... might scare the kids!)  But anyway ..... the moral of the story is that Chicken Little whips the general population into a frenzy .... causing mass hysteria .... about something that isn't happening (or even if it WAS happening, they couldn't do anything about it!)  But as the hysteria builds ...... the populace is then controlled by some one who claims (for his own benefit) he has the answers.

 Now I ain't the crispiest cracker in the barrel, but it sure looks to me like that's what's happening these days with Global Warming and the speech "humans are causing it".  Now I'm not just saying this because we have had one of the coldest winters on record .... or record snowfall the 14th day of April .... look at the total evidence ... don't be Chicken Little!
 
And as far as Foxy Loxy .... well there are plenty so-called experts making millions off this travesty!
 
As a matter of fact, the other morning at the coffee shop, Bud said he was going to start selling carbon offsets.  He said he had a quarter section he as going to plant trees on to sell to those who felt guilty about their lifestyles and wanted to purchase carbon offsets and be carbon neutral.  Then he added "and if it stays this cold, I'll use the trees to sell firewood ... it's a win win for me!"
