The Model For Obama And The Pope? North Korea

October 2, 2015

The Burning Platform (click here) shows us that the Pope and President Obama would consider North Korea a perfect model for every nation to follow if we want to stop global warming. Electrical usage in North Korea has decreased since 1980, while South Korea’s electrical usage since 1980 is 14 times greater. We all know that electric power is produced by carbon based fuels, which emit CO2, which is used by plants along with water and sun light to make sugar for the plants and oxygen for us. Wait a second! Does using electricity produce oxygen?

 

DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO

I have a question for the Pope and the President. If everyone followed your examples and spent their days pontificating or bloviating about poverty; Who would produce all the stuff that you want us to give to the down trodden? It’s hard to give something away that doesn’t exist. Production comes before consumption. The Pope should know this from reading Genesis 4:19 “By the sweat of your brow you shall eat bread.” And President Obama should know this from reading Karl Marx, “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs“.

The people who rail against capitalism, do it under all the comforts that capitalism has produced. They are ignorant of the processes that allows them to do what they do, because they’re born in the middle of the story.
