Look! A talking turd. He doesn't make any sense but it's still amazing that a turd can talk at all.


THE Prince of Wales warned yesterday against the pursuit of economic growth at the expense of the environment — and condemned climate change sceptics for their "corrosive" impact on public opinion.

The Irish Examiner

Prince Charles used a speech at a European Parliament climate change conference in Brussels to challenge politicians to break the link between growth and the production of high-carbon goods.

And he challenged environmentalists to start selling the benefits of sustainable living, instead of focusing on what people should give up. He said a "business as usual" approach to increasing national wealth was just a short-term remedy.

"We have to see that there is a direct relationship between the resilience of Nature’s ecosystems and the resilience of our national economies.

"If the fabric of the Earth’s life-support system fragments, as it appears it may be starting to do; if those systems become weak or even collapse — essentially, if Nature’s capital loses its innate resilience — then how long does it take for our economic capital and economic systems to lose their resilience too?"

(More of this crap...)

Wetzy, good one!

This guy is a goner. Not able to hold up his end of the log with Princess Diana, then moves on to dreaming about being a tampon ... With Camilla, the sponge lady wrinkle depends pants no less.

Jumpin Catfish ! This dude is missing critical components.

Kid, doesn't it just figure that he'd be a Muslim-collaborating Greenie? How did the monarchy end up with this poor excuse for a leader?

Wetzy... ALMOST biodegradable.

@The_Kid yeah years of tight inbreeding within the castle eventually took its toll. Why do Brits put up with these people?

The_Kid said...

@Bill, well, they can still laugh at obama and his uncivilized wife when he shows up with an Ipod full of garbage for a gift and still feel on top of the world :)

I guess it's all relative.

Actually Charles is honestly unique. Most of those folks are fine.

" European Parliament climate change conference in Brussels " yet another shindig at my expense with windbags all preachinng the same message to each other.

Actually Charles' message was to tell 'environmentalists' to stop majoring on how difficult it all is but to spin the lie that giving up stuff is 'cool', as though Charles would know what 'cool' is if it bit him on his arse.

"Don't think of retiring from the world until the world will be sorry that you retire. I hate a fellow whom pride or cowardice or laziness drives into a corner, and who does nothing when he is there but sit and growl. Let him come out as I do, and bark."

His (was it) Grandpappy was pro-Nazi (and lost the kingship for it, among other things). And, crown princes seem to have a Monty Pythonistic politic take on the department of funny walks working that into the Department of Redundancy Department, then combining those with policy. Genocide, for princes, artists, musicians, the socialites among the wealthy, and anyone opting out of society because it is too hard, there are too many rules, or they do not believe in the world and think a psychotic version of Peter Pan seems much more fun, seems to be the only way.

I have no other answer to it. I am sure they create reasons and logic and rules and... but... those are all without merit. Genocide simply cannot be logically explored. It is a emotional reaction to excesses of wealth, drugs, stimulus, a sense that one has or will be cheated (the prince will never be king, I should think), and escapism. I do pray these people find hope, sanity, God. If they die as they are, they will be lost to God, or really the other way around. And, regardless of what some think, it is a very cogently considered position they take (even as insane as it actually is).
