From the Twitter feed of Bernie Sanders:
Fossil fuel executives should be criminally prosecuted for the destruction they have knowingly caused. #GreenNewDeal
— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) August 22, 2019
There is no problem those Socialist bastards cannot solve that doesn’t involve throwing people in prison.
Bernie wants to throw the management of oil and gas companies – you know, the fuel that powers our economy – in prison for the destruction that they will attempt to qualify with dubious science.
What law have any of these execs broken now that is a prosecutable offense?
What will the charges be?
Can they prove that one weather-related death, one bit of weather-related damage, one grain of sand washed off a beach was the result of a direct action of one of these people?
No. It is 100% fallacious to say “this storm was more destructive than it should have been because of global warming and that is why damages were $10 million instead of $1 million.”
What Bernie really wants to do is have a Soviet-style show trial where these people are dragged into a court to be convicted on purely political grounds.
The thing is, if he can do this to them, he can do this to anybody.
Bernie wants to end the use of fossil fuels, most likely with a ban.
I bought a brand new 2018 Dodge Ram Power Wagon 18 months ago. I have barely 9,000 miles on it. I’ve added some accessories (rumbly exhaust, light bar, etc.) because she is my baby. I’m a truck guy to the core.
My Wagon has a 6.4L Hemi big block, I get about 12 MPG. That doesn’t bother me because I don’t drive far (hence the 9,000 miles in 18 months).
I am persnickety about preventative maintenance. My last truck was a 2003 Silverado 1500. I still have it and only 109,000 miles. I got 15 years out of that as a daily driver and it still runs strong.
My plan was to give the Wagon to my son in 11 years when he turns 16, at which point, it should have about 70,000 miles on it, which is practically brand new for a 2500 truck.
So will Bernie institute a mandatory buyback for both of my pickups? Or will I have to buy a new electric vehicle while paying off the loan on my Wagon which I can’t get rid of because banned gas burners have no resale value?
What if I refuse to comply. Do I get to go to prison too for wanting to keep my beloved trucks?
The same guy who wants me to give of my AR-15 is going to come for my truck too. I don’t think so. I’m not going to give anything up to those bureaucrats.
You can have my pickups when you pry them from my cold dead hands.

HI wonder how much energy/fuel is used to heat and cool his houses?
Going after the petroleum companies is nothing more than showboating for the socialist voters and idiots. But, I repeat myself.
Fossil fuel executives. Why just fuel? Does Bernie not know all the other products that are derived from a barrel of oil? The nearly infinite list of lubricants, the synthetic fibers, the paints, etc… The list of things made from petroleum is massive, and no other resource has that level of energy, or usability per liquid ounce. If Bernie was even remotely honest, he would have said petroleum executives, but that would make it too easy to remind him that petroleum is much more than fuel.
By the way, someone should remind Bernie that petroleum is all natural as well.
I had a discussion with an anti-petroleum person, and all their arguments against petroleum were valid. Yes, hemp is a fantastic substitute. You can use the plant fibers, refine the hemp oils into fuels or lubricants, etc… However, when I asked them how many acres of hemp it took to equal a single barrel of petroleum, I was called a son of a bitch and told to fuck off.
I guess I just don’t understand debate anymore.
Nothing like ex post facto laws, huh?
Amazing how out of touch with reality these morons are. ..
I wonder when GM will start manufacturing Zil limos for the Party Bosses?
Well, I’m sure Bernie doesn’t ride a horse, because of those icky horse farts that cause the heat death of our planet. And of course no heating and cooling of his houses, or any plastic cars, or batteries, and definitely no gasoline! Or any artificial stuff in his houses, or clothes, either. He must wear deerskin like the Natives in days of yore, killed and skinned with hand-made flint. He walks everywhere he goes. Right?
OR, he is either a liar or an idiot. For my money, I would bet that he’s both.
Comrade, you aren’t thinking like a good Communist.
Bernie is of the Nomenkultura, so he doesn’t have to practice what he preaches- because some are more equal than others.
But, without double standards, the Left would have no standards at all.
