    Gimme a fracking break

    Gimme a fracking break

    This is a follow up to yesterday’s Criminalize Fracking post.

    Gimme Coffee is an Ithaca coffee roaster and something of an institution.  For a mere $4 or thereabouts, you can have quite a good latte.  The coffee happens to be excellent, but it comes with a heavy dollop of liberal political agenda on top.

    A reader forwards this image he saw on Facebook and comments:

    You’ve probably seen this, but just in case . . .

    This photo was posted to Facebook, proudly displaying a bag of ‘Fracktivist‘ coffee on sale by Gimme Coffee.

    Fracktivist - small

    How insufferably self-righteous.

    How proud she is, in an ignorant, small way, to contribute to the continued economic depression wracking upstate New York, all the while keeping America dependent on the fossil-fuel friends of Al Gore.

    I applaud the North East’s continuing self-sacrifice so that Texas and South Dakota and other Conservative states can enjoy less competition (and higher prices) in selling oil and natural gas.

    If you want to have fun, go in, buy a cup, and tell them you’re buying it to support them – you own stock in a couple of oil companies in Texas, and you really appreciate how they’re helping maintain a monopoly for you, so you can get incredible profits.

    That should cause some cognitive dissonance – that they’re applauded for lining the pockets of Corporate Monopolies and Big Oil.

    I like their hypocrite blend. That’s the one with coffee beans harvested by the youngest of child laborers, but still has a haughty liberal message printed on the bag.

      From web site, “All of our coffee is roasted on one of our two antique (1950) Probat drum roasters — a GG45 and a LG5 -”

      A little research shows that the Probat GG 45 and the LG5 run on either natural gas or propane with the proper conversion kit.

      Can Gimme! Coffee ensure that the gas they use as fuel to roast their Fracktivist coffee was not supplied in some part by fracking? I wonder what the smug hipster brandishing her coffee bag say about this?

      The environmentalist hypocrisy continues.

    Bet OPEC is the chief proud sponsor of anti-fracking sentiment…of course, Democrats invest heavily in Islamist Oil.

    The truth about Greenism isn’t pretty, safe or green.

    Whole villages in China sickened and polluted by mining rare earths to produce solar panels.

    Tons of toxic waste from producing solar panels.

    Using corn to produce methane causes prices to go up, so poor people suffer.

    Reusable bags do not save carbon units and can cause deaths, disease unless washed.

    The whole global warming, climate change deal is part of a global tax scam.

    Carbon police have destroyed fragile third world economies to fail, caused poverty and deaths of villagers.

    Ultimately, hybrid cars use as much carbon as regular autos.

    Organic isn’t necessarily healthier or safer than regular food.

    Solar wind devices kill birds.

    Fracking is not the cause of earthquakes or pollution not nearly as much effect on environment as green energy pursuits.
