This guy posts some the best stuff I've seen on Stumble which includes his fantastic photography and blog on George Carlin's stance on environmentalists which I've reposted below. Lycaki is definitely worth a stumble. :)
We're so self-important. So self-important. Everybody's going to save something now. "Save the trees, save the bees, save the whales, save those snails." And the greatest arrogance of all: save the planet. What? Are these fucking people kidding me? Save the planet, we don't even know how to take care of ourselves yet. We haven't learned how to care for one another, we're gonna save the fucking planet? I'm getting tired of that shit. Tired of that shit. I'm tired of fucking Earth Day, I'm tired of these self-righteous environmentalists, these white, bourgeois liberals who think the only thing wrong with this country is there aren't enough bicycle paths. People trying to make the world safe for their Volvos. Besides, environmentalists don't give a shit about the planet. They don't care about the planet. Not in the abstract they don't. You know what they're interested in? A clean place to live. Their own habitat. They're worried that some day in the future, they might be personally inconvenienced. Narrow, unenlightened self-interest doesn't impress me.
Besides, there is nothing wrong with the planet. The planet is fine. The PEOPLE are fucked. Difference. Difference. The planet is fine. Compared to the people, the planet is doing great. Been here four and a half billion years. Did you ever think about the arithmetic? The planet has been here four and a half billion years. We've been here, what, a hundred thousand? Maybe two hundred thousand? And we've only been engaged in heavy industry for a little over two hundred years. Two hundred years versus four and a half billion. And we have the CONCEIT to think that somehow we're a threat? That somehow we're gonna put in jeopardy this beautiful little blue-green ball that's just a-floatin' around the sun?
The planet has been through a lot worse than us. Been through all kinds of things worse than us. Been through earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles...hundreds of thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors, worldwide floods, tidal waves, worldwide fires, erosion, cosmic rays, recurring ice ages...And we think some plastic bags, and some aluminum cans are going to make a difference? The planet...the planet...the planet isn't going anywhere. WE ARE!
We're going away. Pack your shit, folks. We're going away. And we won't leave much of a trace, either. Thank God for that. Maybe a little Styrofoam. Maybe. A little Styrofoam. The planet'll be here and we'll be long gone. Just another failed mutation. Just another closed-end biological mistake. An evolutionary cul-de-sac. The planet'll shake us off like a bad case of fleas. A surface nuisance.
You wanna know how the planet's doing? Ask those people at Pompeii, who are frozen into position from volcanic ash, how the planet's doing.
The planet will be here for a long, long, LONG time after we're gone, and it will heal itself, it will cleanse itself, 'cause that's what it does. It's a self-correcting system. The air and the water will recover, the earth will be renewed, and if it's true that plastic is not degradable, well, the planet will simply incorporate plastic into a new paradigm: the earth plus plastic. The earth doesn't share our prejudice towards plastic. Plastic came out of the earth. The earth probably sees plastic as just another one of its children. Could be the only reason the earth allowed us to be spawned from it in the first place. It wanted plastic for itself. Didn't know how to make it. Needed us. Could be the answer to our age-old egocentric philosophical questi
If this story is true, then all I can say is it's about time that there are Christians in the world that have decided to actually ACT like Christians. I'm a Christian who plays D&D and WoW, etc... I highly doubt I'm going to burn in hell.
This girl's stumbles are not only fantastic, but she is an amazing writer who has brought me to tears with her words. I've been getting to know her and have come to truly love her spirit. She's a passionate and beautiful person who makes me smile whenever I need it most... and the kind of person I know I would cherish a real life friendship with. Thank you, Shell. :)
It is MIND BOGGLING to me how so many people are offended by this site. The people that created it are brilliant in my opinion. It's not a racist site at all... wake up people! It's about how white people claim they're not racist, only to prove just how racist they are with the ignorant things they say to African Americans in their lame attempts to prove they're not. The site creators made a huge and much needed point in a very sarcastic way. KUDOS to them! Hopefully some eyes have been opened.
PEOPLE... THE FACTS PROVIDED IN THIS VIDEO ARE SHOCKING AND FRIGHTENING FOR OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN!!! PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO WATCH THIS VIDEO IN ITS ENTIRETY!
It is long, but it's also a VERY interesting and IMPORTANT video...
"Bleeding heart liberals" can't think past their noses. They always think in the short term and are very unrealistic.
"Let them come in! They have a right to a better life! We need to help them!" is their typical stance.
In a perfect world, that would be wonderful. It would be great if there were no consequences with doing this... but there ARE consequences. HUGE ones. And democrats have to learn to look at the bigger picture!!!
If we let everyone through, then what!? It's freakin' COMMON SENSE PEOPLE! EDUCATE YOURSELVES!!! You NEED to start thinking with your HEADS instead of your HEARTS!
Then there's the wonderful democratic candidates who think "Gee, there's soooo many immigrants... if I support them and act like I'm on their side, once they're legal I'll get ALL THOSE VOTES!" (Although, with all the rights illegals are getting these days, I'm sure they'll be voting in no friggin' time!) They don't really care about the long term effects this will have on our country... hell, why should they? They won't be around to deal with it, so who cares, right??
They are selfish and think only of how they will benefit most in the short term and are willing to risk the downward spiral of our country so long as they win. Then they brainwash millions into believing they are right and supporting them. It's an amazing thing really. Americans need to wake the hell up, be wise to this and start thinking for themselves. We need to start doing what is best for US as a nation and for our children and grand children. Let's get our priorities straight, shall we???
Immigration levels are now 5 times as large as they were in 1963!!! At these current rates, our schools, parks, lakes, sanitation, etc will be overwhelmed by 2050. The rates HAVE to be reduced!
It is important that EVERY American sees this video!!!
After you watch it, you will understand the problem WE ALL face. The biggest concern is that Congress won't take action to solve this issue, unless we ALL make our voices heard loud and clear!
This year, the USA total population will exceed 300 million people. See what happens next!!!
This is a MUST SEE video for anyone interested in the immigration debate, whether you are a citizen, an illegal alien or a Congressman. This clip from the longer video, Immigration by the Numbers, features Roy Beck demonstrating the catastrophe of the huge numbers of both legal and illegal immigration by Third World people into the modern nations. He uses standard statistics and simple gumballs to show this disaster in the making.
I don't know about you, but this problem frightens the hell out of me! I plan to vote for Tom Tancredo... because he has a REAL plan for this very serious problem.
I soooo love this... Awesome stumbler! Thank you! :)))
If You Go Away . . .
A girl asked a guy if he thought she was pretty, he said... No...
She asked him if he would want to be with her forever... and he said No...
She then asked him if she were to leave would he cry, and once again he replied with a No...
She had heard enough.
As she walked away, tears streaming down her face the boy grabbed her arm and said...
You're not pretty... You're beautiful...
I dont want to be with you forever... I NEED to be with you forever...
And I wouldnt cry if you walked away...
I'D DIE . . .
"You, senator, I know, were the only person that I know of who suggested declaring war. In retrospect, you were probably right." Those were the exact words of former secretary of state Madeleine Albright, during the 9/11 commission hearings, after being questioned by commissioner and former Sen. Bob Kerrey about the Clinton administration's lackadaisical response to the terrorism against the U.S. that occurred from 1993 to 2000. You see, back then if I remember correctly, Albright was talking tough like she was actually going to handle business and take on terrorism head on. So was her heroic boss, Clinton. However, if I remember right, it actually took Clinton some time to master the tough guy approach to terrorism. In the beginning, he was pretty soft, well...very soft. And, of course, he never really dealt with the problem. For example, after the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993 Clinton urged us not to overreact, and, in an interview on MTV, described the bombing as the work of someone who "did something really stupid." That's not exactly tough talk. Terrorism continued. Then he got bold. After the attack on the Khobar Towers barracks in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, he said "The cowards who committed this murderous act must not go unpunished." Terrorism continued. He then got his rhetoric right (no pun intended) the time of the embassy attacks. "We will use all the means at our disposal to bring those responsible to justice, no matter what or how long it takes," he said. "We are determined to get answers and justice." Terrorism continued. By October 2000, when al Qaeda bombed the USS Cole, Clinton had the routine down perfectly. "We will find out who was responsible and hold them accountable," he said. Terrorism continued. The fact of the matter is that Clinton is responsible for doing too little about terrorism during his eight years in office, in which there were several attacks against the U.S. Here is a quick recap of the terrorist attacks during his reign:
-1993 World Trade Center bombing - killed six and injured 1,000.
-1995 bombing in Saudi Arabia - killed five soldiers.
-1996 al-Khobar towers bombing in Saudi Arabia - killed 19 and injured 200 soldiers.
-1998 bombing of US embassies in Africa - killed 257 and injured 5,000.
-2000 bombing of the USS Cole - killed 17 and injured 3 sailors.
And the Bush Administration...
-2001 World Trade Center bombing (all planned during the Clinton Administration) - killed 3,000 + innocent people.
And, what did Bush do? He is dealing with terrorism despite being scrutinized by the main stream media; and if that means occupying Iraq than so be it. While I am no Bush apologist and am very critical of some of his policies (immigration, border security), I can truly say with confidence that we are safer today than we were with Clinton. And I still don't understand why uninformed liberals actually believe that Bush caused 9/11 to happen; that his foreign policy while in office for 8 months caused this cowardly act.
THIS is absolutely beautiful. THANK YOU for stating the TRUTH in such an unavoidably, clear way. Unfortunately the liberals have NO COMMON SENSE so they will never understand or accept what you've written. It doesn't matter how true your words are, they will spin it however they can to make Bush look bad. The bottom line is: WE HAVE NOT HAD ONE SINGLE ATTACK ON AMERICAN SOIL SINCE 9/11. Why do you think that IS people??? It is because Bush is STEADFAST and UNWAVERING. He flat out told us after 9/11 (when almost everyone supported him) that this was NOT going to be a quick process, and he KNEW that the majority would support him in the beginning, but after time he would have less and less support. But he KNEW what needed to be done to protect our country and HE'S BEEN DOING IT... regardless of how many ignorant and easily swayed supporters have turned on him or how low his approval ratings go. THAT is a strong President. To hold steady and not be swayed by those who become soft and whose vision becomes clouded. I can guarantee you that had he been pursuaded and backed out of Iraq prematurely because of the pressure, we most definitely would have experienced another attack of some sort, if not multiple attacks! And THEN what!? Then it would be "That freakin' Bush, he backed out to soon! NOW look what's happened!" He's damned if he does and he's damned if he doesn't. But even with all the disrespectful comments he receives about his supposed lack of intelligence, in my opinion he's smarter and stronger than the vast majority. He made a vow to stick to the mission for as long as it would take, and he's sticking to his word. The problem is that we were all supposed to "NEVER FORGET", but sadly, it's clear that all has been forgotten for most Americans. When the going gets tough, most Americans want to tuck their tails and run which is pretty sad.
