"And the stars are projectors, yeah, projecting our lives down to this planet Earth." - Modest Mouse

Damn Hippie Liberal Trees 

S.F. Gate columnist Mark Morford presents yet another scathing indictment of the atrocities perpetrated by BushCo, in this case the demonization of ecology and the gutting of 30 years of progress in environmental protection.
The truth is, no matter which party you align yourself with, nowadays it takes more guts, more outright nerve, to care about this planet, to work to strip your life of the plastic and the poisonous and minimize your waste and your impact, eat more consciously and support local farming and cherish the flora and fauna, than it ever could be to load up the Escalade with Malaysian-made crap you bought at Wal-Mart that's now 89 cents cheaper because it's made in a sweatshop and not at the local factory that was forced to shut down.

This, then, is the ultimate BushCo credo: No sanctity. No reverence for that which is larger and more ancient and more divine. No concern for that which provides beauty and nourishment and sustenance. Mother Nature is not a source of life and inspiration and vital health -- she's just a lowly wench who needs to be put in her place.
