Welcome to a discussion about the upcoming 5th Revolution in the US, which I’ve titled the “Revenge Revolution.” For more about the Revenge Revolution and the author, Entry #1. Periodically I write a “sense check” to assess whether a revolution in the US is possible or whether the entire exercise is based on a statistical aberration — i.e., a roughly 50-year cycle between major upheavals in the US. Entry #430 was the most recent “sense check.”
BEGIN ENTRY #450 Dear school-age children:
We at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) want you to know how much we admire you and how much we are looking out for your future. To make sure your lives will be cut short, we are opposing any legislation to address global warming that would reduce the use of fossil fuel.
We want you to know that continuing to use fossil fuel will help increase the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere and help make the earth even warmer. And a rapidly warming earth will be such benefit to you.
A warming earth will be such a benefit that those of us who are a bit older are jealous. With a warmer earth, you’ll be able to vacation in the Arctic. With a warmer earth, the ice caps will melt, and the oceans will rise so much that a new shoreline will be created. No more will rich people be able to keep you from accessing beachfront property.
And for those of you who live in the upper Midwest, there’s another benefit. You’ll be able to get rid of those oak and maple trees and grow palm trees instead.
Plus, everybody will experience more exciting weather. You’ll have a chance to experience more hurricanes, more tornadoes.
You’ll get a ringside seat for all those weather disasters. No more having to watch the Weather Channel to see all the disasters happen. Experiencing those disasters firsthand will be more fun than going to Disney World.
The weather disasters will also add excitement to the food supply. Climate-change caused disasters will ruin lots of farmer’s crops and result in food shortages. Not knowing if you’ll be able to get food and eat should add another layer of excitement to your life.
Some people might get upset when these disasters happen. And they might not act very nice. So, to help you protect yourself from “those people,” we’re going to make sure every school-age child has an assault rifle. As a bonus, we’re going to give you extra high-capacity magazines.
We know that when everyone in school has a weapon, no one will shoot anyone else. Just think about all your classmates having guns. Wouldn’t that be exciting?
Who would want to go play with some cap gun, BB gun or even a 22-calibre rifle or pistol when you could have an AR-15 to play with? And that AR-15 will help to protect you from those evil pointy-headed liberals.
We think you and your friends deserve as warm a planet as possible – like the dinosaurs had – and you deserve to have as many guns as you can carry around. We hope you appreciate all of what we’re doing for you. Enjoy your shorter, weather-disrupted, dangerous life.
Signed your Republican friends at CPAC. END ENTRY #450
