You Can See Some of the Bleeding Hearts Coming Up:

I'm sure you will notice this crap appears on English language Al-Jazeera:



How much does an average funeral cost?

Between $7,000 and $9,000.  Way overpriced, IMO, but this leads me to the question:

How is it that  a canvas sack or a simple wooden box costs half that?

Answer: The Green movement IS A SCAM.

Honestly, I am for not being embalmed because I think the process is gross, but not because I'm worried about planting my 'toxic' corpse in the ground!

Watching the video will make me only madder; I read about this the other day and was stunned.
Some people are working so hard at demeaning the human body in so many ways and this seems a part of that;
Pretty soon they'll have the air quality people complaining that cremation pollutes. "Human Smog". wait for it.

Z, cremation was mentioned in the video! Not for the human smog, which is probably a spot-on prediction on your part, but for the fuel used! I kid you not!

Everything human is a scam. W/O the scams, we'd have to fight the bellum omnium contra omnes with weapons, instead of merchandise. ;)

...what's upsetting about THIS scam is that it's de-evolutionary. Our burial rights need to get WAY more complicated, NOT simpler, and the costs much MUCH higher. THAT is REAL status. I want a pyramid at Gaza dedicated to me, larger than Khufu/Cheops! ;)

Brooke said...

With all your servants and property included, naturally...

Angel: Green is green. ;)

My heirs are strictly bound to burn me and do absolutely nothing that isn't required by law.

Morticians are just first class con artists.

Chuck said...

I'm with the Duck. Cremation and nothing extra. I would rather my kids have the money than a sleazy funeral home owner.

cube said...

Green IS a scam. From climate change, to raw milk, to free range chickens, to organic veggies... SCAM.

BTW I don't want to be cremated until the cause of death is settled.

Once eco-burials become accepted and widespread, the next step will be Soylent Green.

In our states, the laws force you to be buried certain ways and with certain kinds of materials, even if you are cremated. I'm with Duck n' Chuck (or is it Chuck n' Duck?) - cheaper and quicker is better and I think you can do that respectfully. Honor my memory, not so much my body. I won't be in there anyway.

Caylee Anthony had an eco-funeral.

After the comment by Beamish there is little more that can be said.

Brooke said...

Ducky, Chuck: I think that is the way to go.

Cube: Organic veggies... One of the biggest and most detrimental green scams around!

Gator: I'm not certain about the laws here in Ohio. I too, think less is more.

Beamish: Dayam. That was one hell of a point!

USA: Second that.

USA_Admiral said...

You should give Beamish a knighthood for his last comment.

Always On Watch said...

One of the few relatively stable industries in the United States right now is the funeral industry.

And these Greenies want to destroy that as well.

Hey, how about we lift restrictions on having ourselves buried in our own back yards? Of course, county regulations here forbid that.

Brooke said...

I'm thinking of canonizing him after that!

AOW: I looked up such regulations here. Supposedly you have to be 150 feet from a water source and 25 feet from the next property.
