The Pete Morin Editorial Review--Issue #38

The Green Police

Anybody notice that super bowl commercial that was aired with about four minutes left? It happened just before the interception by Porter that put the Saints up by fourteen. Audi, the automobile company, presented its 'green' idea of what a car should be like in our climate changing world. Evidently, Audi was proud of their compliance with the current green mania, but there's a darker side to their message.

Notice the people who weren't acting in the best interests of the planet and the repercussions they endured. A couple in a hot tub were arrested for having their water temperature too high. Another individual was arrested for using a styrofoam cup. Incandescent lightbulbs are no longer acceptable and can get you incarcerated. Green police were checking trash receptacles for offending materials. That's right, GREEN POLICE were checking everything people did to see if they were despoiling the planet.

Were I the Audi automobile co., I wouldn't be so smug about conforming to what the GREEN POLICE wanted. Do we really want to live in a society that has to conform to what the GREEN POLICE desire. Just who are the GREEN POLICE? They're statists; nanny state lovers determined to snuff out any individuality with a vengeance. Regular folks should be disgusted with the pandering that corporations are willing to do to make themselves appear to be in compliance with very questionable science.

All this may seem a little extreme, but considering what people have to endure from the politically correct crowd, it may not be beyond the pale. Wake up America. Punish Audi--punish those arrogant politicians who want to restrict citizens freedom to live their lives as they see fit.
