Dumbass liberals...wow. I'm spitting mad. Please God...deliver me from Washington State...
Is it safe to conclude that you do not agree with these measures?
I dunno about safe, but it'd be an accurate interpretation of my thoughts.
It is safe to say that the price of housing in the Seattle area will quickly become unaffordable to most people living there. Also there will be a huge downturn in the building of new homes (except of course for millionaires), since only few will be able to afford the cost of these new regulations.
Similar measures were passed in the Palo Alto area (now called Silicon Valley) about 30 years ago, presumably to protect the environment. The same thing happened...the price of houses went through the roof, people who worked in the city were forced to live far away and make long commutes. In the meantime, none or few new houses have been built in the area.
Inland wetlands rules are pretty similar all over. Where I live, you cant backfill within so many feet of a wetland, river, stream, etc. Development is restricted in these zones.
It is true, ,the environmentalists want to protect the fish, birds, etc. And somebody with a brain has to be worried about teh water we drink and the air we breath. For the most part, I can agree with them.
Even Bill Gates needs clean air and water to survive, cause we all know it isn't the great software his company hawks that allows us to get up in the morning.
As far as running out of land,, that is a myth. There is enough land for those who deserve to have it. The problem is that we are expanding our numbers, humans, without regard for the environment, or the other living critters on this earth. Why think we are the sole choice to inhabit the planet?
Bob Barker, the old hoser who pitches the wheel of fortune, or whatever lame show he hosts,, always closes his show with "Don't forget to have your pet spayed, or neutered."
How about, "Don't forget to take your birth control pill mom, and dad don't misslay that box of Trojans. What we don't need is more unwanted, unplanned, unloved kids being brought into this world folks and only you edumacated types can help." (who else is home at that time of day watching GD TV????) I would love to have him, or one of the othe lame talking heads say "Don't forget to get your skank ho daugher fixed today, and bring that little crack head too cause his gene pool needs to be drained!"
((Please be informed, I mean all kids of all people who believe welfare is a career path. Regardless of skin color))
Which brings me back to my other argument, tell Hillary Clinton to shut the F up. Only a GD socialist believes in "it takes a village to raise a kid".. My parents didn't need a village, but we did know who both sides of the family were and each side babysat my miserable little butt at one time or another. I think what Hillary is touting is that the working class have to keep on shucking out hard earned dollars so the dregs of society can sit on their lazy butts while resting from flatbacking for brat money.
I'm a conservative Republican who lives in Madison Freakn' Wisconsin. Cry me a river.
Washington? I thought he must be taliking about Massachusetts when I saw the title....
Stories like this remind me of Dennis Miller on drilling in Alaska :
" Well, it's only my opinion but : Fuck the caribou. I want cheap gas."
Oh, Working man ? great rant. More.......
I want cheap gas too. But turning my back on Alaska is out. I have never been there, but would love to go before I get too f'n old and turn into a drooling old democrat.. (shoot me before this happens please)
I don't care if you, or someone else owns a 4000 sq ft mansion, or a nice expensive sports car. I applaud honestly earned wealth. I would not try to tax anyone out of their earnings as a guise for the socialist form of wealth redistribution. Nor would I deprive a successful business person from attaining the good life (like the liberals do) but, I want the high roller to remember that he/she needs to have clean water and air to survive. AND,,,DON'T MESS UP MY CHANCE OF SURVIVAL. We all are on this big boat (earth) together. There is no such thing of sinking half of the boat, and staying safe and dry in the other half.
Let me know when they start passing out mansions, I'll try to get the day off from work. I realize and agree that we can't poison our world.
But I don't believe oil drilling in Alaska would harm it. the Alaskans are all for it as far as I know. When the Alaskan Pipeline was being discussed there was a similar panicky argument about the caribou and Polar bear being harmed. But much to the dismay of the Sierra Club and Greenpeace, after the pipeline was built, the caribou herds not only thrived they expanded. And the Polar bears use the pipe itself as a spotting tower for hunting, and are also fat and happy. Bear in mind, the footage we saw in the Bush/gore era regarding ANWR was actually filmed elswhere. Not the same place at all.
We NEED to drill in Alaska, mexico ( with permission) and Venizuala. Screw OPEC.
Then we need to figure out how to produce synthetic gas.
Then we need to switch over to whatever Al Gore invents for us to replace the internal combustine engine.
I would support any legislation that would drive out the rift raft, and raise the cost of survival for all.
I think Bill Gates would support it too, I bet he would like to have half of the state as his private retreat.
Who would have thought that people would pay $100, for a landscaping rock, or have to have a license to hunt and fish?
There are too many people having a impact on the planet, we are either going to have to start asking for volunteers to start taking one for the team and not have families, or raise the cost of living so they cant afford to, or start WW III and reduce the population the old fashioned way.
