Sierra Magazine November/December 2003 The latest issue of the very hypocritical, greedybigbusiness Sierra magazine begins with (gasp!) an advertisement for Toyota automobiles on the inside of the cover jacket! Since the Sierra Club habitually trumpets the ills of "global warming" and "pollution" ad nauseum, one must wonder why on earth it would allow sponsorship by greedybigbusiness which pollutes and promotes global warming? Anyone, anyone? Anyone? Let's go to the back cover - yet another ad by a biggreedybusiness, viz Nikon. The first words in the Nikon ad - "stopthecar". Once again, the Sierra Club is linked to automobiles and pollution. After all, how many pictures in frames around your house were taken somewhere else, somewhere that you drived to, in a (cough, cough) polluting, global warming car? Most all of them. Moreover, these Nikon cameras are very expensive. How much better could such money be used to feed or clothe someone in dire need - somebody homeless? Anyone, anyone? Anyone? I shall further expand on the incredible hypocrisy of the Greedy Sierra Club by citing dozens of its advertising sponsors, from whom Greedy Sierra Club accepts filthy lucre, while simultaneously condemning the pollution unavoidable while using such products promoted within the polluting pages of Sierra. Page 2: Nikiwax - waterproofing for expensive hiking footwear, used only by people who have traveled afar in pursuit of hedonistic pleasures at the expense of the poor and downtrodden, whose bread was taken out of their very mouths. Page 4: EarthJustice - a legal foundation advertising here to save "coho salmon" instead of hungry human beings. Fish first, then people? Is that humanitarian? For whom are we "saving the earth" if not human beings? Page 4: L.L.Bean's Gore-Tex Mountain Treads - $99 hiking shoes. Can't one buy suitable hiking shoes for less than $99? And use the balance to “feed the homeless” etc, etc. Anyone, anyone? Anyone? Page 5: Bose home theater systems. (Full page ad! What a waste of resources, such as ink and paper.) No price is given for this high tech, resource consuming DVD player, but the greedyrich Bose Corporation will finance it for you at 19.8% annual percentage rate. I’ll bet it costs a bunch – enough to feed and house several poor homeless drug addicts for two weeks. “Compassionate (ha ha ha)” liberals would help homeless drug addicts rather than buy a Bose home theater system. Strangely, I did not see one single advertisement soliciting funds for the urgently needy. Page 6: Pax World mutual funds, which of course invest in only the most pristine and politically correct greedyrich bigbusinesses. Politically correct mantras circle the advertisement, including "green, not greed." But "greed" is having so much money, you can invest it in mutual funds, rather than give it to the ever needy poor and downtrodden. Page 7: Swheat Scoop - natural wheat litter, for cats, no less. First, cats eat meat almost exclusively. Now as every Greeny knows, producing meat requires vast quantities of water. Bad, bad, bad! Secondly, why would any thinking human being waste money on feeding good-for-nothing cats while human beings are dying by the millions. That is unless the self-professed Sierra Clubbers hate humans and love stupid cats, which even the world famous and widely beloved Snoopy intensely dislikes. Page 11: Alaska - advertisement. Anyone going to Alaska without burning fossil fuel, for planes, trains, and automobiles? Anyone, anyone? Anyone? I didn't think so. Page 12: Sierra Club Mutual Funds: How on EARTH could the Sierra Club invest in "companies that are environmentally and socially aware" when the Sierra Club itself is clearly environmentally and socially clueless! Just read its ads! P 13: Sea Eagle Sport Kayak: Non-biodegradable inflatable plastic kayak! Aaaagh! It is made from . . . chemicals, petrochemicals even! You have to drive your car to the river, lake, or ocean to use it. People are living under freeways, and greedyrich Sierra Clubbers buy plastic kayaks and enjoy themselves? What is this world coming to. Anyone, anyone? Anyone? Page 19: Sierra Club books and calendars for "holiday giving": You can't walk to the library and RECYCLE a book? You have to BUY one and enrich the VERY RICH, VERY GREEDY Sierra Club already? Page 22: Green Century Funds: Yet ANOTHER greedybigbusiness trying to pry your money from you to invest solely to MAKE MORE MONEY for your own greedyrich self. Page 22: Campmor camping equipment: You go out into the wilderness just for fun, by polluting car, no doubt, as millions, perhaps billions of other Americans are living in the cold, cruel wilderness by necessity. Shame, shame, greedyrich Sierra Club shame. Page 52: Sierra Club Charitable Gift Annuity: Are YOU "greedyrich"? Loaded? Fork it over to the GreedyRich Sierra Club. They'll keep you fat because you kept Sierra Club fat. Single life annuity rates of 6.5% to 11.3%. After you croak, the residual is all ours. They're the greedyrich Sierra Club. They just call themselves something else. Sometimes "progressive," sometimes "moderate," but never EVER "extremist" or "polluting" or "greedyrich." Page 53: Sierra Club Outings (12 page ad GreedySierraClub REALLY REALLY wants you to fly all over the world,and make them more money. The hell with Kyoto!) : Alaska & Arctic Canada: $4,295 PER PERSON. But don't worry. That includes a "round-trip flight from Anchorage to Nome: in a polluting, global warming airplane, where you arrived, no doubt, in yet another fossil fuel, anti-Kyoto Treaty jet aircraft. Greedyrich Leftist Hypocrisy is like that. It never ever recognizes its own hypocritical transgressions. Ever. P.S. The incredible variety of globe trotting, air polluting,richgreedy resource consuming vacations range from California to Asia, to Bhutan. How nice. Page 67: GreenKarat: "ecologically responsible jewelry," they call it. I’m sorry, but no jewelry is "ecologically responsible." Every piece on earth wastes precious resources, depletes our available supply of rare gold, and silver, and gems. This money could more responsibly be used to help "people of color" downtrodden for centuries by greedyrich folk frolicking all over Bhutan and Alaska with their filthy lucre stripped from the hands of the proletariat class. Page 68: Australia's Great Resorts: Fly a polluting Qantas Airlines to Australia, while poor immigrants from Mexico live ten to a room. What do you care! You belong to Sierra Club. Page 69: AmazonVoyage.com and UltimateHikes.co.NZ: Fly a polluting, anti-KyotoKyotoKyoto jet airplane to the Amazon or New Zealand. When you return, you can still flaunt your wretched hypocrisy by making fun of "stupid chimp" George Bush for HIS "anti-environmental" record, while overlooking your own. P 70: 17 advertisements, thus maximizing the greed of Sierra Club in trying to squeeze every last dollar it can from advertisers promoting "Galapagos," "Machu Picchu," ""Peru," "Belize," "Wood fired hot tubs," Central America, "Asia, Africa, the Americas, & Europe," and even "Wild encounters with the spotted dolphin." Now if anyone can tell me how to enjoy even one of these advertised pollutions without exacerbating what Leftist Wackos call "global warming," I will buy you a "wood fired hot tub", advertised in the GreedyRich Sierra Club Magazine. Although these Leftist Extremists don't want any tree anywhere cut down, so I don't know how you can even use wood to heat your water.
