Insane Morons!

Two opinion pieces today - Terry McCrann talks of Insanity in Oz whilst Alan Caruba talks of Morons in the US.

Defining our national insanity

IT'S a challenge to decide which was more inane and utterly delinked from reality. The decision to tie our carbon-constrained future to the old dead tree of Europe, in historian Manning Clark's iconic phrase. Or the detailed analysis of what would be the consequences. 

Certainly, there's an appropriateness in both the phrase and its use in this context.

If linking to this old dead tree is, in any way and in any context, "the answer", I would dread to know what was the question.

Europe's -- despite the claims of Climate Change Minister Greg Combet -- lonely and largely only attempted assault on the production of tree food, almost announces its determination not to be the contrasting alternative proffered by Clark: the young tree green. Unlike old dead trees, they need carbon dioxide.

Voters for Obama will ignore the fact that Obama is “transforming” America into the equivalent of Greece and taking the nation over a fiscal cliff.
