There’s a line between offering words of hope, and cruelly making false promises that cannot be delivered. US Vice President Joe Biden went way beyond that line in a recent speech. Or could it be the guy is actually dumb enough to believe the things he said?
It’s utterly disgraceful that the VP of the US would stoop so low. Biden symbolizes what’s wrong with science today. Either it is being run by absolute ignoramuses, or just plain deceitful people. The evidence indicates it’s the latter.
According to Biden, government running science can only produce wonderful miracles, and quickly – in just a few years!
All that’s needed is your trust.
Already today they have the means to control global climate, they say. A world without ills awaits you! What are you waiting for?
Excerpts of Joe Biden speaking at Cypress Bay High School graduation ceremony (emphasis added, and not in order):
Imagine the breakthroughs that are on the horizon and just beyond it. Imagine by the time you’re in a position to buy your first home, putting a roof of solar shingles that will cost no more than today’s ordinary shingles that will be able to power your home, heating, cooling, running appliances at a fraction of the cost your parents pay today. Imagine a world in which hunger is vanquished by crops that don’t depend on the soil or water or fertilizer or pesticides to thrive! They’re just around the corner. Imagine famine being a memory — and with it, the end of so much war and conflict that plagues so much parts of the world! Imagine a day when the lightweight materials, cleaner fuels, [and] advanced engines simultaneously make our air cleaner — allowing us to go the equivalent of hundreds of miles to the gallon. And maybe, most importantly, freeing us from our dependence on foreign oil and all that entails for a nation. Imagine a day within your lifetime when doctors can and will engineer your white blood cells to attack cancer cells and leave healthy cells untouched, allowing cancer patients to live out a full life without undergoing the difficulty some of you observe, painful chemotherapy and radiation procedures. Imagine a day, when in your, doctors are able to regenerate entire body parts and limbs that have been damaged and lost, not only saving tens of thousands of lives, but restoring the thousands of our Iraq and Afghan veterans coming back in need of prostheses, so they will be able to live a full and ambulatory life.”
If his audience believes all that, then those graduation caps really need to be replaced with dunce hats.
Remember: if anything ever happened to Obama, he’d be President! With a little luck, only another half year before we’re out of the woods.
