I witnessed recycling for the first time many years ago on a trip to Minnesota. My ex-sister-in-law (a greenie-weenie teacher), was carefully sorting all her trash into colorful little bins on her back porch. I thought it was one of the oddest things I had ever seen. Nothing since then has happened to change my mind. The only thing culled from normal trash in our neck of the woods (North Idaho - home of many bitter-clingers), is cans of paint and such, which makes perfect sense.
I certainly hope the schools have lots of nice Earth Day celebrations planned, so the little children can get a head start on worshiping the creation instead of the Creator.
Here's how our current president celebrated Earth Day last year.

There's nothing I like more than an arrogant elitist with multiple homes, limousines, and private jets telling me I should sort my garbage, put ugly little squiggly mercury-filled light bulbs in my home, quit eating meat, and drive a tuna can that will lead to my certain death if struck by anything larger than another tuna can. The only smart thing John Kerry ever did was marry a women with a boat-load of money (which she inherited by being married to an evil capitalist.)

Conservatives Fight Back
Nice Deb tells us why we are important.
The days when liberals could make their nasty, baseless smears on t.v, or in print, and get away with it, are over. If they want to claim that conservatives spat on them, or called them racial epithets, I’m afraid we’re going to need to see the proof. You know why? You know why. Liberals lie. They have no compunction about it, either. It’s an Alinsky rule. They further their goals by any means necessary. This fact is becoming more obvious by the day. read the rest

Fear of Telling the Truth Prodigal Daughter
[...]In our society, those who have a different viewpoint than the current administration are being told to shut up. They are being told that their opinions are "hateful" or "racist."

And because of such attacks, fear has the opportunity to muzzle truth. read the entire article. It's excellent!
