    Federal Lands & Citizen Perceptions

    I get so tired of delusional people bitching about Federal lands and using the Constitution as some sort of defense for their opinions. Some people in this country do not understand the relationship between the Federal Government and lands managed by the Federal Government. The...

    Keep Science In Politics

    The only source of information that should be used to legislate environmental policy (such as clean air and water standards, and the Endangered Species Act) is SCIENCE. Any politician saying otherwise is simply ignorant of facts and not wise enough to be in a position...

    Attention Telemarketers

    When a person answers the phone they ask “Hello?” You don’t call someone and answer with the same question. That is stupid and very annoying. It’s bad enough that you are a telemarketer, but if you are trying to attract a stranger to whatever you...

    American Insurgents

    There is a disturbing movement going on in the United States today. Its protagonists and promoters use words like “freedom,” “rights,” and the “Constitution” to give their cause a righteous tone, but all of that talk is little more than ignorance at the least and...

    Coal: The Going Backwards Fuel

    I saw this sticker on a car today: More like: Anyone promoting fossil fuels these days is just ignorant of health and science, and hopelessly romantic about the past. Times weren’t better. We were just stupider. Nice to see some people in the 21st century...

    Trophy Hunting

    I’m not anti-hunting. I fully support people who want to hunt for their own food. I’ll just never understand this obsession some hunters have with trophy hunting. It’s not even natural. It serves no positive purpose. Hunting predators is flat out immoral in my book,...

    Evil vs. Wild Animals

    So let me get this straight: A guy gets dressed in tactical assault gear, walks into a Colorado movie theater, murders 12 people and injures 70, avoids the death penalty and gets life in prison. In Yellowstone a grizzly kills one person hiking alone in...

  • When Trees Are Better Than Humans

    When Trees Are Better Than Humans

    I’m an unapologetic tree-hugger (metal head, not hippie), but that doesn’t mean I don’t approve of harvesting trees. Where I have a problem is clear cutting. Like the once beautiful tree-covered mountain behind my neighborhood. The asshole who owns the side of that mountain is...

  • Gay Marriage: Why This Debate Is Stupid

    Gay Marriage: Why This Debate Is Stupid

    Despite the heated emotions and opinions being flung around, this issue is quite simple: Marriage is a public commitment of love and exclusiveness. What is in a person’s heart does not require the government or religion, nor does it matter what sex you are. Why...
