Can't see the forest...

Well, it looks like Shrub continues to push his "Forest Clear-Cutting, er, Thinning" bill.

For those of you unaware of what this might be, it is Shrub's attempt at stopping forest fires by cutting down the forests. No, I'm not kidding. He wants to log 20 million acres of forest to "keep them clean and healthy". Hey, nothing is cleaner that a vacant lot. Get those damned trees outta there!

This same logic has led us along the road of cleaning up the oceans by eating all the fish, keeping us warm by filling the skies with smog, and controlling the population by prohibiting abortions.

Welcome to planet Earth, folks. Gotta love the way we run it... who else would?
