I Knew There Was Something Rotten in Denmark...

I've been hearing a lot of spots lately on KTLK-FM from a coalition of groups that were pushing the passage of Senate Bill 787 (the Clean Water Restoration Act). While listening to the ad, that among other things promised that its lack of passage would leave "polluters" to have free reign in polluting Mother Nature and her forest creatures, one of the groups paying for the ad was a group called "Earth Justice."

Earth Justice?

Just the word "justice" in the name implies that someone must be punished for some kind of infraction, imagined or otherwise. In other words, "You've polluted Mother Earth--now bend over and take it like a man, you polluter!"

So, when the ad asked listeners to "Call Senator Klobuchar and ask her to support this bill," I knew immediately what to do. I called Senator Klobuchar and asked her to vote against the bill (not that it would do a helluva lot of good, anyway). I instinctively knew that any bill the enviro-whackos were supporting would be certain to 1. Take away liberties; 2. Cost a helluva lot of money or 3. Both.

Turns out my instincts were right:

So, if you live outside of Minnesota and have a U.S. Senator who will actually listen to reason, do all of us a favor and tell them to vote down this travesty of justice. I'd tell Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar that, but, well, she's a democrat, and has a 100% democrat lemming voting record, and even if the Democrats introduced a bill that would re-establish slavery, she'd vote for it, just because there was a "D" next to the sponsor's name.

This, of course, is just another in what will be a parade of bills by democrats designed to solidify governmental power and to abolish individual liberty.

Yes, elections do matter, folks.
