The Conservative Environmentalist
Much fanfare was made by loony lefties over the weekend about the Earth Hour or whatever the hell they called the attempted manmade blackout.

From his triage center known as the Office of the President-Elect, Doc Obama has determined that the planet’s condition is more critically in need of attention than the nation’s economic | Read More »
My politics I recently joined a social networking group centered around an activity that tends to attract a lot of liberals. Someone started a discussion thread on politics, and more than one lefty jumped in with the usual talking points. I haven’t so far seen anything from a conservative.
