cow pollinater":z8yf4kxe said:The part that I find really interesting is that the people who are are revved up to save the ecosystem are the same people that attack agriculture here in the US. That gives a distinct advantage to countries with zero regulation that knock down rain forests, spray things that we don't even have access to, pollute waterways, etc. It seems that if they really cared they would support our system that protects those resources but then again if they stopped to think that long they might change their minds about lots of closely help values...
True Grit Farms":1jvefirz said:Do the US of A a favor and stay in Alberta, we have enough hot air and bs here already. The fact is no one wants to come to the United States it's so bad here we can't keep them out. Immigration is the reason we don't have a looney left liberal running the country and giving it to the cowards. Alternative power isn't cost effective and I sure don't want to pay what Canadians pay for fuel. I always thought we were the most productive farming country in the world, and somehow we even manage without slaves, child labor and pay a minium wage to boot. Please don't let facts get in the way of a good lie.

...we need to use common sense and employ benefit cost analysis to things rather than do the typical knee jerk reactions our politicians typically do. To spend $5 million on figuring out the most environmentally friendly way to melt bags of ice in Louisiana after Katrina is just plain stupid and whether you are right or left every taxpayer should be outraged at this nonsense.
Not being facetious, but what is common sense to one person is a stupid act of incompetence to another. I have been involved in cases where the regulated party thought building a sedimentation pond was not an act of "common sense". Not everyone thinks a power plant is more important than a minnow. That is a fact Jack.
The world is never exactly what anyone wants it to be. We all live with that. One party wants to go North. The other party wants to go South. We all end up going east and west.
Cattle Today has a culture. I don't think I am unique in observing that. It is largely a Christian Conservative Culture. Yes, I have said that at least 5 times before this. Imagine if you will that the whole world is NOT a Christian Conservative Culture. Imagine that there are people who "sincerely" value a minnow or a rare orchid more than a power plant. To the culture of CT, they are "stupid idiots without common sense". So be it. Call them what ever strikes your fancy. The question is this: does your label for them change anything?
