    Telling people not to have pets is like telling people not to have children . . . Oh, wait! They’ve been doing that for decades!

    I think greens who take this attitude should be shamed for their chickens**t policy approach and encouraged to live up to their convictions. Instead of advocating for new laws to require people to give up their pets (their likely recommendation, and a cowardly one as it will then be up to other people – agents of the state – to enforce), they should organize themselves into neighborhood cadres to go door-to-door, personally forcing people to give up their pets. In fact, I think this is an excellent idea, and I sincerely hope they try it.

    The real objective of the environmentalists is to exterminate mankind, only then would their precious Gaia be suitably dressed in their opinion. I and many like me hold the opposite opinion, we believe that mankind is Mother Nature’s finest achievement and she is justly proud of us and all our works.

    And yet they are winning. See Obama’s latest climate policy statement and John Podesta’s statement that they wouldn’t let Congress interfere. If the main stream press would report on stuff like this maybe ordinary people would how crazy these green’s are, but of course they telling everyone that conservatives are flat earthers.

    For some, it’s about status. For others, environmentalism is about self-validation and a justification for self-rightousness. Some seek power, and some just lothe industrial society and would like to turn the clock back to before the industrial revolution. And they’re fine with 90% die-off of humanity.

    None of these are about rational pursut of the agenda they claim.

    If their analysis is correct, I am willing to take in a Bangladeshi and give my two German Shepherds a one-way ticket to a testing lab. However, we will first need to revise our laws to make it explicitly legal to put down Bangladeshis when they have outlived their usefulness.

    You got to admit that greenies are often amusing. Give them enough rope and they will hang themselves.

    They can have my dog when they pry me from his cold wet nose
