  • Did the dipshidiot happen to clarify if that is all of Ma Nature, or just the 'born' parts? I mean, what about seeds? What about the winter snow/ice that hasn't melted into a river yet? I'd even question how he felt about all those seedlings ... they've sprouted, but those three little leaves haven't yet reached their full potential to produce tomatoes.

    I'd also like to know where he stands on things like tornadoes and hurricanes ... not to mention the oddball lightening that whacks people and buildings/trees.

    How about Ma's diversity that all those factory farms (that feed us) destroy to plant single crops or crowd a gazillion cows into an acre?

    Last ~ food. Are we all to become mandatory breatharians to not trample Ma's rights?

    Sorry ... dunno whether to laugh or just go beat my head on one of Ma's trees.

  • What has mother nature got to do with marxism , Wanda ?

    Marx was a voluminous writer but I don't think mother nature was one of his topics

    It is just a tool for control, Janet. Or does that venture over your head?

  • Next will come the law suits when Mother Nature decides to sue us for neglect or something. As usual, someone with the power to influence others taking things to an extreme.
