    It is refreshing to encounter an intellectual with intellect.

    This guy eloquently dope slaps the whole Green wackos with reality and their own hypocrisy.

    Watch here. It is well worth the 9:15 of your time.

    The truth rocks.

    That was good a fun way to make an interesting point. I am so tempted to ask Greens if the hand wash all their laundry. :D

    Excellent video! I totally relate to the whole washing machine thing. It took decades for the Mountain West to get electrified. The distances are so huge and people live so far from the county lines that there were lots of people who didn't get electricity until the end of WWII (some later). It completely changed the lives of rural women. From a task that all day long to a task that took a few hours (hanging clothing to dry + ironing) was life-changing.

    For well over a decade I had no dryer. I was accidentally very green. The other side of that is the amount of time I spent ironing clothing. When clothes dry on a line (or a rack in the winter), they aren't the limp, soft garments you get from a dryer. They are stiff and astonishingly wrinkled if they are natural fiber clothes. It takes a lot of ironing, damp spraying, and starching to get them looking good. Hours that could be spent doing anything else more productive.

    When greenwashers talk about "sustainable" they really mean "woman-powered". :mad:

    That is so true, Ginger. It is just like the silence of feminist organizations like NOW when it comes the the abuse women endure within much of the Muslim culture. These people want YOU to change your ways, not them. It is classic socialism/communism.

    It was so refreshing to at last see a respected intellectual call them out on it. Maybe sanity will be restored after all.
