That’s one way to limit your CO2 emissions.
Happy New Year
Tarbotton? Good grief. That’s a real name?
Maybe Mother Nature got tired of all the lies and decided to slap down Tarbotton. It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.
I BLAME ASSAULT WEAPONS.
How come the environmentalists get to jet off to all parts of the world?>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Thanks to the presidents Executive Orders which circumvent Congress, the representatives of the people, the EPA now does things according to executive fiat. Obama has created a new elite by his executive orders, and they get to make businesses suffer and jump through hoops,jet around while we ordinary “Amerikans” get to play at being peasants to the new regime. Its just that simple.
That’s the name of my former neighbors-NO kidding. I wonder if she’s related, which would be terrible for them.
Sounds like Tarbottom hit hardbottom and that was that.
Just dang. Too young.
Just dang. Too young.
“Fu*k the Rain Forest!”......
Miss Stevens: All right, that does it. Eric Cartman, you respect other cultures this instant.
Eric Cartman: I wasn’t saying anything about their culture, I was just saying their city smells like ass.
If the late, departed Ms. Tarbotton had bothered to consider the nature of shoreline wave action, perhaps she would still be with us today.
Just because you profess to love mother nature, doesn’t mean that mother nature will love you back.
In fact, she can be a real bitch sometimes.
why wern’t all her friends swiming in the same friendly wave!!!
I won’t live long enough just getting rid of one at a time!
“How come the environmentalists get to jet off to all parts of the world?”
They have 4 generations of rat folowers that were trained with your tax dollars funding public schools!!
The only cure is to make public education illegal!
Did they fine her for illegal dumping in the ocean?

Next thing you know, somebody will start complaining of Obama flying to Hawaii and back and then back and back again.....Soon the environmentalists will demand that an EPA permit will be required to own an internal combustible engine.Either Congress puts a stop to the EPA power grab or we might as well return to caves,
We just don’t care anymore do we?
I know I don’t. I actually thought “good. One less liberal”
Kind of sad, what liberalism has forced us to face, forced us to become.
The oceans are obviously dangerous and should be drained immediately.
