And I keep hearing that the people on the right are the whackjobs. Sure they are. Certainly there are some out there, but that's just insane.

I'm all for conservation and being aware of our environment, but I believe that all revolves around personal responsibility.

I betcha these tree huggers (literally) probably cry about the trees and then drive home in a big SUV, littering the road with cigarette butts, coke cans, etc on their way. They lament a tree's death now, but I wonder if they'd cut down that tree if they needed to build shelter for themselves.

I just wasted 1:47 minutes of my life. Do these idiots realize that trees have no feelings. I would love to walk throught their little huddle with a chainsaw and go nuts.

Why waste the gas? Just give them a hari-kari knife and tell them to take one for Team Mother Nature.

I understand the stance that we shouldn't cut down anything and everything in our path... which is sort what we've been doing constantly since the Industrial Revolution. Reason why... we can't live without plants and trees, it's as simple as that.

But to say plants and trees have feelings is just ridiculous.

We, as humans, communicate/interact with plants and trees all the time... but like this? No way. LOL... c'mon. We humans are an interesting species, don't you think?

I'm proud to claim the moniker "Tree Hugger", but jesus. Great call on the Jack Handy quote Peek.
