Though this is hardly a revelation in this forum, Time Magazine reaches a wide audience-

Republican politicians’ anti-conservation fury is only about a decade old. Many conservation leaders were prominent Republicans and sponsored bills they now attack. Of course, this may not be surprising because I think Ronald Reagan himself might not accepted by today’s Republicans. He would be dismissed as “b” grade actor from the seat of sin — Hollywood — divorced once, and not even much of a church goer. Worst of all he had been the president of a labor union (the Screen Actors guild) 7 times. Those movie stars are pretty much a bunch of lefties.

    The EPA is the biggest threat to polluters getting their way.

    Crusty old Orrin Hatch (how old is he now around 130)
    objected to a unaminous consent order to pass the FAA authorization without the anti union rider attached…. They will be shut down without pay for another month. God help us if the public is stupid enough to give Republoman control of the Senate….

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
