I despise environmentalists

I stole this comment from this site because I simply couldn't resist it. Just let the wisdom of this writer wash over you, then go take a long, hot shower to rinse the crap off.

Wow, isn't is really great that you don't give a shit about the planet you live on. The fact of the matter is that humanity is killing the earth's systems. The forests, the oceans, EVERYTHING.

It's not some giant thing that is beyond our control either. Everybody has it in their power to make a difference. The fact that you know about earth day and just don't care is pathetic. People like you make me sick.

Dustin, you poor, misguided moonbat, I DO give a shit about the planet I live on. Face it, asshole-- without this planet, I would have no place to live. I know that fact. I don't want to destroy my life-platform. But I'm not going to live in a fucking cave and allow it to destroy ME, either.

The fact of the matter is, humanity IS NOT "killing the earth's systems." That's a load of green-spooned bullshit that is swallowed by far too many people who should know better.

How old are you, Dustin? (with that pussyfied, preppy name, I figure that you were born after 1970) I was born in 1952. I grew up in a coal mining camp with no indoor plumbling and I had to take shots for polio, dyptheria, cholera and every other kind of third-world disease you can name. I swam in a creek where outhouses hung over the water a few miles upstream. You just learned to dodge the floating turds.

When I moved to Savannah, my Uncle Gene took me on a boat ride up the Savannah River on the "Blue Moon," a boat my step-grandfather built with his own hands. I was eight years old at the time.

I never saw a more filthy river in my life, and these words are written by a boy from Harlan County, Kentucky. Raw sewage was spewing from gigantic pipes right into the river on the outgoing tide. The paper mills and the other chemical plants blotted out the sky with the belching from their smokestacks and they dumped all of their toxic waste right next to the raw sewage on the outgoing tide. I was certain that if I fell out of that boat, I could walk to shore on all the shit floating in the river.

Now, people run shad nets there and sell the fish and the roe. The river is clean.

How did this miracle occur? I suppose that to properly destroy the environment, we have to clean it up first so that asshats such as Dustin have something to bitch about, regardless of whether or not he has a clue what he's talking about. Environmentalists don't want to hear that the water, air and land are cleaner now than they ever have been before in MY lifetime. No, they FEEL that Gaia is in danger. That's good enough for them.

WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE! is their mantra, and I've got some news for them. Yeah. We're all gonna die. Life is built that way. But going back to living in caves and freezing to death in the dark is NOT the way to save the fucking planet. You want to save the planet? GET RICH, asswipe.

The reason that the good old USA has cleaner water, better air and more trees than it did when I was a boy IS NOT because of the environmental movement. It's because we have the wealth, time and inclination to spend on such a pursuit. You want to save the earth? Create wealth. Period.

The environmental movement seeks to destroy wealth. By doing so, if they ever have their way, environmentalists will sink civilization, but they'll also go a long way toward killing the planet. Money makes Mother Nature happy. With money, we can brush Gaia's flowing locks, wash her body with perfumed soap and treat her like a queen.

Without money, we shit in her rivers and drink the same water. Just look at the Third World.

Dustin, blow your opinion out of your pompous ass.

"Ecology as a social priniciple.. condemns cities, culture, industry, technology, the intellect and advocates men's return to 'nature', to the state of grunting subanimals digging in the soil with their bare hands".

Ah, i do love Rand.

Tardwits like Dustin want the rest of us scraping for roots so they can exploit from the highest level. What a joke.

Woohoo!! Preach it brother!

Posts like this are why I would never ceremoniously delink you, even if I were suffering a selective reading comprehension failure on other posts.

I cut down a badly placed tree in my back yard last week. I wonder if it screamed.

At any rate, I have firewood for next winter.

I hope it pisses Dustin off.

Only by having more energy, more wealth can we solve problems of waste. Otherwise, we would be too poor to.

What a stupid fucking moron you've become.

Do you actually think that those paper mills you discussed simply stopped pumping their toxic waste into the river because it made economic sense? Of course not, you stupid fuck. They did it because the community told them to stop. That's being an environmentalist.

Money makes Mother Nature happy

Are you on crack?

If you want to shit on your little piece of God's Green Earth, go ahead. Wallow like a pig in shit if that's what gets you off. But when your droppings start affecting those around you, you've crossed the line.

Money makes Mother Nature happy..... indeed...

Yo, 'other mike s'....
What a stupid fuckin' pussy you are. Do YOU think those papermills quit polluting just because a community told 'em to? Not fuckin' likely.
They were FINED into submission.

Are you moronic?

If you want to spew stupid shit on your little piece of the web, go right ahead. Believe your lunatic ravings, if that's what get's yer (needle) dick hard. BUT...when ya go around shitting in other people's comments and don't even HAVE comments on yer own blog, YOU'VE crossed the line...into 'Ball-less-ville'.
Wuss.

Sorry Rob, I apologize. I enjoy your blog and agree with almost every post you write. I'm having a week and don't mean to take it out in your comments. I'm sad and lonely and putting others down in blog comments is the only way I can make myself feel good at the moment. Forgive me.
