...runs away from confronting facts about China, hurling insults.
Speaks, I support Green everything. I've changed the way I do things, the way I use energy, the way I treat trash, recycling, it effects all my purchases, and so forth. I'd love to see green renewable energy that minimizes harm to the environment, animals, insects, soil, water. I'm going to do and support these ideals regardless of what my neighbor does, or what China does. I genuinely believe that I have a moral obligation towards the planet and life, and the future.
But we have a problem in China, Russia, and Asia in general. Also to the south in South American countries, and Africa. All of our efforts, as well intentioned as they are, produce minimal results offset by Chines manufacturing, and third-world polluters in general. Dix was right that we, the US, controls our trade practices. We've outsourced our imports to the worst polluting nations on the planet. If you want to change the planet, we have to change how and with whom we trade.
We also have to deal with, here at home, the toxic swamp of chems we allow to be sprayed on our food, soil, factory farm animals, farm runoffs, cleaning fluids, and on and on and on. Yes, I understand the issues raised about conservatives, regulations, EPA, etc. However, when Dem's have been in power, they did little more than conduct ribbon-cutting-ceremonies regarding true conservationism. They did some good things, but because of lobbyists, Wall Street, and corporate glad-handing, they did far too little.
I'm done with the politics of two parties accomplishing nothing while personally enriching themselves at the public trough and worrying about little more than their legacy. I'm ready for real solutions, real ideas, and real action. Not talking points, finger pointing, and hysteria. Until you get on board the solution train, you're just rifding in the failure caboose of a political system that left the tracks long ago. I'm not a doctor, but I'd prescribe a bath bomb, scented candles, and a few hours of quiet to digest some hard truths.
