This Is What Batshit Crazy Looks Like: The Healing Power of Carbon and Eco-Taxation, Which Is THE Only Real Way To Stop Terrorism

M2RB:  Cheap Trick

The green police
They live inside of my head 
The green police
They come to me in my bed
The green police
They're coming to arrest me, 
Oh, no!

In the New York Times, Thomas Friedman comes up with the perfect leftoid answer to terrorism:

Until we fully understand what turned two brothers who allegedly perpetrated the Boston Marathon bombings into murderers, it is hard to make any policy recommendation other than this: We need to redouble our efforts to make America stronger and healthier so it remains a vibrant counterexample to whatever bigoted ideology may have gripped these young men. With all our warts, we have built a unique society — a country where a black man, whose middle name is Hussein, whose grandfather was a Muslim, can run for president and first defeat a woman in his own party and then four years later a Mormon from the opposition, and no one thinks twice about it. With so many societies around the world being torn apart, especially in the Middle East, it is vital that America survives and flourishes as a beacon of pluralism.
Rebuilding our strength has to start with healing our economy …

And the best place to start is with a carbon tax.

UPDATE. Also in the NYT, the latest eco-friendly child-raising advice:

When Jada Shapiro decided to raise her daughter from birth without diapers, for the most part, not everyone was amused. Ms Shapiro scattered little bowls around the house to catch her daughter’s offerings …

Caribou Baby, an “eco-friendly maternity, baby and lifestyle store,” has been drawing capacity crowds to its diaper-free “meetups,” where parents exchange tips like how to get a baby to urinate on the street between parked cars.

These people are insane.
