PASS THE SALT

Posted by Andrew Roman on January 5, 2009

From the school of thought that brought us such blockbuster idiocies as “No DDT Means Malaria” and “Blood For Owl: Move It Lumber” comes a new thriller with all the intrigue that only moronic environmentalists can evoke.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the tangy tale of “Pass The Salt – The Puget Sound Chronicles.”

Floyd and Mary Beth Brown at Townhall.com tell the story:

pass the salt

keep that crap away from the water

Snow and ice cause an increase in car crashes. Car tires have little or no traction on these surfaces. We learn these basic facts in Driver’s Ed 101. However, officials in Seattle, Wash. disregard these physics laws concerning automobiles on snow and ice. They have implemented policies which aggravate dangerous road conditions and are leading to an increase in accidents and injuries.

They claim to act out of their concern for the environment. Hmmm. On the one hand, you have human death, bodily injury and suffering, money lost due to vehicular damage and time lost from work and school — versus the environment. What seems like a no-brainer to most Americans, and defies common sense, is the city’s refusal to use salt and other proven means of clearing streets of dangerous snow and ice. “If we were using salt, you’d see patches of bare road because salt is very effective,” said Alex Wiggins of the Seattle Department of Transportation. “We decided not to utilize salt because it’s not a healthy addition to Puget Sound.”

These environmentalist fanatics prefer people lose life and limb rather than damage a blade of grass or an insect. But like much government decision-making they are actually harming the environment more by choosing sand over salt on roads.

Between the environmentalists, the health police and the Democrats (often interchangeable), it’s almost a challenge to find elements of society that are not bass-ackwards anymore.

How long before headlines like this start popping up:

SCHOOL BUS SLIDES OFF HIGHWAY IN NO-SALT ZONE, FORTY DEAD. GOVERNOR SAYS NORDICK PURPLE-NOBBED TIGER-LILLIES OF PUGET SOUND TO HAVE A BANNER BLOOMS THIS SEASON

Just wait.

We are about to be bombarded with the dangers of Third Hand Smoke.

(I’m not kidding. See here).
