    Humanity's relationship to the Earth

    On the drive to work on my cabin this morning, I heard a presentation by Dave Foreman with a theme about preserving wilderness - the specific subject was the Gila Wilderness, the first designated wilderness in American history. My cabin is located just one mile from the Gila Wilderness boundary.One bit of Dave's speech really resonated with me where he put mankind's presence since the Cambrian period, when life as we know it began to evolve 540 million years ago. He compares it to a book, 540 pages long, with each page representing a million years. If each page has 200 words, and each word has (I didn't catch how many characters), the the existence of humanity on the planet is represented by the period after the last word on the 540th page.Yet here we are - 8 billion strong, having changed the face of the planet in unimaginable ways and heating the atmosphere and oceans mindlessly, polluting everywhere... and breeding like $#@!roaches. What can I say, humans are bizarre. I hope this life is an illusion.

    I guess this explains why libs are so eager to kill babies. Such a loathing for human life.

    There is something seriously wrong with you.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.

    Loathing seems to be your problem.

    I guess that was beyond the ken of dogma and shallow ideologies.

    My bad…

    Relatively soon we will have the ability to move heavy industry off earth and into orbit and space. The Green cult should like that.

    You just can't stop trolling, can you?

    Are you seriously that sad?

    Back to the cabin today, still working on the chimneys. That big flue tile was almost too much for this old man to wrangle up onto the roof, it's a 15' ladder climb. Got to 99F this afternoon, I had to take several shade breaks.
