Champagne socialism... Limousine and Private Jet Liberals?

Bernie Sanders (champion of the "downtrodden", the climate, wannabe punisher of the successful and "free stuff" Santa Claus) charted a Boeing 767 jet for his overnight trip to Rome to see fellow socialist Pope Francis. According to the Daily Mail... that requires approx 33,192 gallons of fuel for the round trip. 50 or so passengers made the trip with Bern (767 capacity is 250 or so).

Comparison to me: calculations of driving patterns based on my two vehicles (one a dreaded eeeveel SUV!), my wife and I "Bern" about 25 gallons of fuel a week. Based on our total fuel use, my wife and I must drive near 25 YEARS to use as much gas as the Bern did on his flight...or... if you calculate using passenger miles (33,192/50 = 663.84 gallons per person)... we must drive six months to equal fuel consumed by each passenger on Bernie’s trip. How much CO2 does 33, 192 gallons of jet fuel add to the air in 16 hours of flight time? (lots)?   One asks… do those who demand we surrender our liberty and prosperity to "save the Earth"... even believe it themselves? Does Bernie's Rome trip (and apparent disregard for CO2) make him a tacit "denier" of "Global Warming"? (aka: Climate change on cold days).  This is addition to many Global Warming (Climate change on cold days) activist who flew private jets to the Paris "Climate Change" summit recently (do as I say, not as I do)... to stay in luxury resorts while they demand we “ordinaries” reduce our lifestyles too little than a top-down, “trickle down” rationed subsistence. 

Which brings up this observation: Liberals in a way can’t be hypocrites… as to them hypocrisy is just another tool in their toolbox to advance their agenda of tyranny. They also know the media will cover up for them. Same is with “truth”… to (misnamed) “progressives” ANYTHING that advances the agenda is “truth”. So Hillary/Bernie/Obama and all of them can say one thing one minute and the EXACT OPPOSITE the next minute and if their agenda is advanced BOTH statements are “true”!
