The 1800's buffalo slaughter represents the whole attitude of
"conservatives" toward the natural world. If you want to talk about
conspiracy theories, study the AGW-denial spin machine, or any fringe-
Right reaction to evidence for environmental problems. It's always the
same crap about taxes and rights, with little acknowledgment that
nature keeps people alive in the first place.
That's revisionist BS (should we expect any less?) The bulk of them
were shot by whites to starve the plains Indians out of their food
supply, and it mostly worked.

I see. Only liberals are allowed to be environmentalists. Take your
bigotry and shove it.

I only wish conservatives would be conservationists. T. Roosevelt was
the last significant one, a century ago. Nixon only created the EPA
under pressure. Reagan didn't care. Bush protected some marine areas
(oil-poor) but crippled regulations in most other places. If modern
conservatives are doing much conservation, they don't seem to want it
People who respect nature's limits favor environmentalism over
growthism. Today's "conservatives" tend to be the against that. They
spend too much time excusing waste. They think large, overpowered
engines are a birthright. They rant about people's "right to drive
whatever they want," as if it supersedes all physical evidence of oil
depletion and CO2 emissions. Conspicuous consumption is seen as
prosperity but conspicuous conservation is seen as a hippie fad.
James, your own writings are full of this stuff, along with your copy/
paste editorials. It is self-evident who respects nature and who

I wish liberals would be librarians, the hot kind that whip off their
glasses and let down their hair and let their top three buttons pop
open to reveal perfect, huge breasts.
Do you want polite or do you want sincere?
