Today is Earth Day and, not coincidentally, the birthday of Vladimir Lenin. The connection between the two is controversial but not unexpected. Both Lenin and modern day "environmentalists" believe that they have been ordained to dictate to others how they should live their lives. Both also hold, or in Lenin's case, held, to the belief that the world is overpopulated-. Lenin merely had a more direct means of dealing with the problem.
My new favorite Earth Day quote:
The great thing about worshipping trees is that tress rarely ask you to do anything. Scott Ott on Celebrating Earth Day
So, in our family we will be enjoying our traditional Earth Day meal-hot dogs roasted over burning tires. Mother Gaia will survive, thrive and continue as she has for millions of years to do what ever she damn well pleases. And in her honor, so will I.
