their action is based upon Hindu conceptions i.e. do not even step on a bug!

More Buddhist than Hindu.

This means that all the illegal alien gardeners with their lawnmowers and weed whackers are mass murderers?

“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?

What’s so funny is the act would protect from harvesting the grass they want to smoke. (Hee! Hee!)

“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.

Apparently so have others but don’t let that stop you from frothing at the mouth.
