A World Upside Down: Greenpeace wants Happiness Day to mean “buying NOTHING”!

Posted: March 22, 2013 in Uncategorized

Geez!..I missed it…….Happiness Day!……….you too? How did that happen, after all who doesn’t want to be HAPPY?

So what was this Happiness Day?……………indulging in games and pleasures of life that usually cause people to smile laugh and pretend for a moment that it’s Christmas morning all over again? Attending a Comedy Club where a really funny comedian makes you laugh until your sides ache?

In the dark dank green world that Greenpeace lives in it has nothing to do with pleasure or fun……it has to do with being a tight fisted anti money and consumer hating fraud who is trying to set an example for the rest of us that BUYING STUFF IS A CRIME!

How messed up does one person have to be to advocate shite like this?

Well, there are a few. Mostly young and impressionable ones who have never heard the words: “question authority” or people who have never stepped outside a politically correct social structure that doesn’t include David Suzuki, WWF, Greenpeace,  Sierra Club, Friends of the Earth among all the other mind numbing idiots beating the bushes looking for mindless followers to drag around on display trying to get others to look like THEM!

Just to underline how absolutely messed up this is, here is one of Greenpeace’s Happy Heroes:

Ban Ki-Moon

Ban Ki-Moon is a Happy Hero for creating the UN day of happiness and for saying this: “On this first International Day of Happiness, let us reinforce our commitment to inclusive and sustainable human development and renew our pledge to help others. When we contribute to the common good, we ourselves are enriched. Compassion promotes happiness and will help build the future we want”

Below is the link to Happiness Day and a very real critique of all that’s wrong with it.

Between Happiness Day and Earth Hour coming at us, it’s starting to feel like we are living in a “Matrix of Insanity”……………make it STOP!

Just ignore these idiots………….they will just disappear!

How Greenpeace Defines Happiness

March 21/2012 Donna Laframboise

Yesterday was the first UN-declared international Day of Happiness. When tweeting about it Kumi Naidoo, the Executive Director of Greenpeace, couldn’t help himself. He had to cover it in green slime.

“Let’s not buy anything on the International Happiness Day,” he wrote. According to him, there’s “Nothing greener than not consuming.”

What fatuous rubbish.

After 30 years in downtown Toronto, I recently moved to a small town. One of its highlights is a spectacular French bakery. The croissants are flaky, the baguettes are luscious. The Saturday morning cinnamon brioche is a gift from heaven, the cream puffs and eclairs are divine.

Yesterday afternoon, in blowing snow and bitter wind, I walked over to that bakery. I gave the woman behind the counter money and she gave me a Pave du Roy to take home. Delectable dark chocolate and more chocolate. My fella and I shared it last evening. It made us very happy, indeed.

The young couple who own that bakery are our neighbours and our friends. The day before yesterday was cold, dark, and forbidding. Business had been slow. Which means the bakery produced the normal amount of fresh bread and pastries, but sold less than normal. It’s possible that that one day ruined the bakery’s entire week, financially speaking.

Mr. Greenpeace thinks I should have added to the bakery’s misery. He thinks I shouldn’t have bought that sublime chocolate confection. His nonsensical logic goes like this:

  • it’s happiness day
  • happiness = being green
  • being green = not buying anything

Boycotting the bakery because it was Happiness Day wouldn’t have made the six-days-a-week, hardworking people who own that establishment happy. It would have harmed them.

Depriving myself and my husband of that marvelous treat wouldn’t have contributed to our happiness in the slightest. Depriving the government of the tax I paid on that purchase wouldn’t have helped us meet our communal obligations, either.

So in which twisted universe do these Greenpeace ideas make the slightest amount of sense?

Even if I’d wanted to, it wasn’t possible for me to consume nothing yesterday. Eating – that most literal form of consumption – is only the beginning.
