Oh My God!

We're at risk of losing 140 of the 79 million trees here in Southwest Virginia!

See "Virginia Tech sports facility plan in Stadium Woods draws opposition."

The issue?

The athletic department at Virginia Tech plans to bulldoze a plot of ground and build a new practice facility.

The opposition?

"Experts" who make nonsense claims like this:

 "This is so stinking rare,” [Virginia Tech Forestry Professor John R. Seiler] said. “We might have the single largest collection of old-growth white oak [jf: the forestry expert identified the collection as consisting of "six to eight," rather than six or eight] left in the eastern United States. This type of forest once covered Virginia. This is what you now have left. [In fact Southwest Virginia is full of old-growth white oak; this professor needs to get out more.]  This could stay here in theory forever.”

Old trees could stay here forever.

In theory.

Really.

Expect that opposition, with pithy arguments like the forestry professor's and with the average student on campus not knowing his ass from his elbow, to prevail.

Those "six to eight" endangered white oak trees will now live forever!

Until the law of averages - which gives them zero chance of living forever - catches up with them and they become toothpicks.

My response to this controversy?  For the love of God.

A relevant quote gives that headline some background:

"James Hansen wants to destroy freedom and American democracy – based on his psychotic,  delusional fear-based god complex."

Now it all makes sense.

Why We Shall Prevail

Because the opposition is made up of idiots.

How about this from Barack Obama's former "green czar"?

Van Jones: Koch Brothers To Blame For Trayvon Shooting

Idiot.

Among idiots.

War? What War?


The title of that 1970 anti-Vietnam War movie came from a slogan adopted by the hippie left in the day.

"What If They Gave a War and Nobody Came?"

Well, we need a new slogan for this new era:

What If They Gave a War and Nobody Can Find It?

Fast-forward to 2012: The Democrats are all out there telling us about this "Republican war on women."

Only problem?

Beyond the Democrats declaring it to be so, there ain't no war that anyone can find.

So they just make shit up to compensate.

Kinda weird when you think about it.

Headline of the day:

Pander-monium: Obama’s got a fever and the only prescription is more “war on women” crapola

Sweet.

I Have a Suggestion

It appears that Obama is searching for a new slogan for the upcoming election that will be as effective in winning the hearts and minds of the jobless and mindless as "Hope and Change" was in 2008.

See "OBAMA: A BRAND IN SEARCH OF A SLOGAN."

My thought?

HOPE & CHANGE.  HOW'S THAT WORKIN' OUT FOR YA?
