I watched the original "Superman" movie this morning and had a disturbing thought. Do you remember the scene where Lex Luthur set off an atomic bomb to trigger half the state of California to slide off into the ocean?
A big dam collapsed as a result and Superman stopped the flood waters from engulfing thousands of people by pushing rocks off a mountain and creating a makeshift dam downstream of the flood.
Can you imagine what would happen to Superman if he actually DID such a thing? He'd be in court for the rest of his life. Environmentalists would eat him alive.
He didn't have a permit for that dam. He didn't file an Environmental Impact Statement and have it approved. He MAY have threatened the habitat of the endangered three-toed, yellow-ass salamander. These are serious crimes today.
What he did was NOT heroic, no matter how many people he saved. It was an assault on our fragile ecosystem.
Have you seen the movie The Incredibles? That's exactly what happened to the superheroes in that cartoon. They ended up in a witness protection program.
Not to mention depriving those folks down stream of their FEMA debit cards!
There is one thing I love about major disaster movies ... there is always a scene in which the Golden Gate Bridge is seen crumbling or falling apart.
I can only imagine the political landscape here in California if an event of that magnitude were to hit San Francisco.
Al Gore will want New Orleans to be declared protected wetlands. It used to be that we drained swamps and stopped malaria. Now, we preserve wetlands and put mosquitos ahead of people.
Every time I see that scene, I'm rooting for Luther...
California.. sliding into the ocean... sigh...
Oh hell yeah. Graumagus hit that one on the head.
I would love to see those faggots at Berkley screaming and fallinginto nothingness like during the Destruction of Krypton.
Rob, you are a strange man with unusual thought processes. No other blogger I read would come up with a post like that!*grin*Maybe that's why I stop here first every day after work. Keep 'em coming!As for Woody, I don't see that scenario as all too farfetched. If not Gore, then some other high-profile moonbat(s) will surely try it on for size. And there surely will be other moonbats in government positions barking away in favor. Maybe DC needs a good stiff hurricane or something to clear out the rubbish. After I'm outta here, that is.
