I just read a report in the Saginaw Field and Stream newsletter about a study done on the areas of riverbank that were cleared of soil and plants to alleviate a contaminant - I believe it was dioxin - in the Tittabawassee river area near Midland. The study showed that the areas that were contaminated and NOT cleared show no effects in the wildlife or any organisms that live there. The cleared areas are devoid of animal life and show no signs of recovering yet. In other words, when left alone, nature seems to recover. When “helped” by environmentalists, matters are made far worse.

In Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, they are paying crews to go into the woods and pull out forget-me-nots because they are an invasive species. These flowers grow all over in the woods near Grand Marais and are just beautiful in the spring. They grow in and with trilliums on the forest floor. I wonder how much stuff will be destroyed by these workers tromping all over and disturbing root systems of the trilliums and other plants?

Maybe we should let nature take care of itself and leave the damn trees alone in the Manistee National Forest? Do you think?

thanks for listening.....

  1. Follow the money ----  The commie Obama plan is ---->>>
  2. more Gubbermint jobs for them   (paid for by your taxes)
  3. less wilderness and parks for you and for hunters, snow mobilers, fishermen etc
  4. fund the left via more Gubbermint jobs
  5. defund the right (the citizenry) via taxation
  6. public sector gets larger
  7. private sector shrinks as it is starved of funds via taxation and over regulation
