BTW, that’s not about the birds and the bees. They’re lying. It’s a lawyer party (liberaltarian) front to take the properties of its own suckups NIMBYs and soon enslave them, too. That’s the thanks that people get for helping the evil ones with mercantilism against their own countrymen with fake environmentalist and animal worship fronts in local-yocal meetings. Fascists eventually consume everyone.

“To claim to represent the rights of rocks is to project a subjective human impression of a rock’s preferences onto rocks.”

Too kind, too understanding IMHO.

Usually what the wannabe “constituency representative” is actually doing is the age old ‘shuck & jive’ whereby virtue words of that day are used to cover plain old theft.

I happen to like using turquoise in silver jewelry, and was able to observe SW Indian jewelers like Fred Kabote. From them, I learned “The Soul of the Stone” and am therefore best qualified to represent turquoise.

Based upon that, I must protect all turquoise and make sure no turquoise is hurt by nasty, selfish miners who are deaf to the suffering their cruel mining inflicts upon the soul of the turquoise.

Therefore, my fellow commies - oops, make that environmentally aware/concerned Americans, call upon your CongressPersons to enact laws creating the Department of Turquoise Protection.

Oh, don’t forget to have ME appointed Turquoise Czar for Life.

There is a difference in this case, wherein there is little to no direct pecuniary benefit to the taker beyond the sating of a whim.

Ask them if they feel like a threat to the earth today. I’m 20 miles east of Boulder, we measured 4.5” of rain in the homer bucket in 24 hours.

“Maybe they should pass a law protecting floods like what happened last night.”

Indeed. I think it’s brutal to Boulder Creek to hem it in with walls so that it cannot expand to its natural, Gaia created boundaries during a flood. How dare humans interfere with nature.

Tonight, God willing, I pray those walls will hold up and the torrent of water coming down the canyon will not wipe out about 1/5 of the city of Boulder, along with the butterflies, fish, deer, trees, and wildflowers that it is ripping to shreds at this moment.

If that young lady’s home is preserved tonight—and I hope it is—she will blissfully continue in her ignorance that man controlling and modifying nature is what saved her home and a whole bunch of trees and other stuff she actually likes.

When activists of any stripe demand rights for animals, rocks, or plants, what they are really doing is demanding disproportionate representation of their interests as self-appointed advocates. Unfortunately, to enforce a right requires the police power of government, because it is assumed to be a disinterested arbiter of competing claims. History suggests the opposite, which is why limiting the number of enforceable rights is as important to securing liberty as constituting them as such.

Well stated!

Wow, who will they arrest as the floods have probably destroyed a ton of flower gardens - in Boulder County. Will property owners be charged with negligence since they didn’t dig up all their flowers and plants and haul them to higher ground when they evacuated?

“Nature rights” as opposed to Natural Rights.

These folks sound like Poison Ivy’s character from the Batman comics.

Anyone who has been in a college community like Boulder might recall that these activists love plants and animals but hate humans. They see abortion as a way to protect the environment from the damage caused by humans. So, no, they would not extend their protections to human babies. Besides, in college town, babies are viewed as a threat to personal freedom and the free-spirited college lifestyle.
You can expect the activists to spew hate on anyone seen walking on the grass—activists are not in it to be peaceful, loving supporters of plants—activists are very angry people.

That is my observation.

Boulder is a city full of nut bags. Let us not send them flood relief, because floods have a right to happen too.

Can they mow the lawn? Certainly they will kill some plants, flowers, insects. Does this mean all pest exterminators will have to close up shop? Driving a car will certainly murder many insects. If a rattlesnake takes up house inside your daughters room can he be removed? Will a house ever be able to be built? Can a lot be cleared for building that home? If a storm comes through the area can they clean up the fallen trees that are part of the natural environment Can they use antibiotics and kill bacteria. Will Lysol be available on the shelfs of the stores? To kill bacteria is to disrupt their ecosystem. Will they allow soap. Soap kills bateria by reducing surface tension on the surface of the bacteria in addition to having direct antibacterial activity. It looks like people with acne are out of luck.

Where does this end? When people abandon the area?
