The Sierra Club, America's oldest green group has abruptly turned off its campaign against the anti-environmental program of the Bush administration.

And what, exactly, has Bush done that has been "anti-environmental"?

You're exactly right about where the lefties have gone. Anti-Vieques-bombing-ex-con Edward James Olmos was interviewed on the news last night from outside an Islamic community center. He was begging Americans not to engage in "anti- Arab hate crimes". As if.

If you think that site is bad, check out the World Socialist Web Site.

Thought of posting their lead editorial here earlier but it is so warped, I figured it was best left where it is.What is frustrating about the 4th international however, is the mainstream press parrots much of what they say (about Pinochet for instance). After cleaning up the rhetoric of course so average readers don't know where the take on a subject originates.

About building nuclear plants? I wonder if any of our nuc power plants were potential airline targets

One could hit one and damage the cooling system, but as far as the containment building is concerned, there would be no breach. No way. There may be a few older units that are vulnerable, but that is simply all the more reason to get going with new construction.

This nation simply MUST become energy independent. The economic efficiencies of "comparative advantage" aren't worth the military and political risks.

Post # 3: Trouble is these groups seemed out to destroy America by blocking the right to drill for gas and oil anywhere in America or along our coasts. Demanding impossible emission standards for power plants, factories and every mode of transportation, and filing so many frivilous law suits against every attempt to build nuclear plants, until the expense of this moderately cheap source of power became unaffordable.

Those chickens just read the mood of American's after the attack, and realized that a majority were in no state of mind to humor the green's childish nonsense. THey will re-group and be back as anti-war protesters when they feel that conditions are in their favor.

Thanks for the ping guys. I'm sort of off in my own daze lately. We've seen wonderous and awesome things in the last 4 days. I don't know how you all feel, but I'll stand beside Andy Kerr (after they delouse him!!), hand in hand to fight the evil that has been heaped on us. I've never been so happy to say I was wrong when I was so positive that patriotism and faith was only in a few. There's a lot of it that I just can't sort in my head. War is against everthing I profess to believe in.

I've always wondered how the founding fathers did it. How did they pull together so many differing factions and produce what they did. Why didn't John Adams just give up? This nation was visited by the devil on Sept. 11. Then the hand of God grasped us. Flags are everywhere. Strangers want to talk. Old friends run and tell you they love you! I don't profess to be a good Christian. It's what I'd like to be when I grow up. But I know a miracle when I see one. This nation is blessed. Give us the strength to hang on to it.

We'll battle for the environment and straighten out these politico's...another day. Today they are our leaders, today they've done well. I'm glad I'm not in their shoes! Haven't you watched them transform? This is the great equalizer. We've all learned a lot. We have even more to learn. I even enjoyed watching Dan Rather!!

My son left the NW a couple years ago to be near "the love of his life!" He wasn't gone many weeks when he called one day and said, "Mom, there's only one thing worse than my relatives, and that's everyone elses!" Looks like we Americans, for the most part are family.....warts and all. And the Brits! Did you see the Queen singing God Bless America!?? Looks like we American's aren't so hated after all. We might just get this right yet, people. God isn't finished with us yet.

I've been wrong a few times, but I sure am glad I'm on the right side of this issue. Now to pray for grace to forget the past and go on towards Victory for America.

I think they are doing this because they know they will lose an incredible amount of face and/or support among the general public.

Also, it might just be a tad bit unpopular to cling to foreign oil if we get ourselves in a shooting war.

Call me cynical.

Quite frankly, the only "good" thing to come out of Tuesdays attack on the USA is the realization among liberal scumbags

that their time has passed and that they better get the hell out of the way before they get run over as well.

A couple of months ago, my MD daughter said that as much as she abhors the loss of human life, what this country needed was a war. She said that was the only thing that was going to bring our country back together again. Sadly, it looks like she was right.

I found a website that has posted pictures from around the world showing people who are in mourning with us. Sadly, it looks like it took this tragedy to bring the WORLD together in a common cause against evil. And I'm not talking about any new world order either!

America's tragedy is felt by all the world

I love it when socialists go into meltdown mode.

It isn't just the enviro-wackos either. Most bleeding heart libs have suddenly become staunch flag waivers. If we didn't know better, you'd think Chuckie Schumer was Atilla the Hun.

"These people do not have principles. They have an anti-American agenda -- and it will not stand up under scrutiny in the heightened awareness of an America at war. They must slink into the shadows."

Right on the button.

Their reaction in this circumstance simply proves that their protests, propaganda and legal maneuvering had nothing to do with the environment. And everything to do with an anti-American socialist agenda.

If their course was just and their hearts pure, why stop?

That's music to my ears. Maybe we won't have to hear from them ever again.

Frankly, as a staunch opponent of nearly everything the Sierra Club has been doing, it is quite heartening to see that there is yet a spark of the Spirit of America left within them.

Maybe so, but it's still a good idea to keep one eye open. NEVER TRUST !!
