  •  Nature is tremendous at healing itself. (20+ / 0-)

    Even at Chernobyl, scientist are astounded at how much life still survives and thrives.  Yes, wolves don't live long enough to get the kind of cancer humans would develop from radioactive exposure, but they're not dropping like flies either.

    What drives me nuts down here in Texas is that no one pays attention to the long term.

    We used to have storms in my area that were 300 miles long from north to south and 50 miles wide from east to west. They'd sweep across the DFW Metroplex every spring, five or six of them, dropping 3-6 inches of water, enough to soak deeply into the soil.

    Now? "Scattered showers."  And people get excited when it rains for twenty minutes. "We got rain!"  Yes, just enough to soak in one inch and bring the roots towards the surface where they'll die when the sun comes out.

    And everyone prays for rain. They won't do a thing themselves to solve the problem, because Jesus will fix it for them.

    I think God, if God exists, must be getting pretty damn disgusted with us. No one likes children who refuse to grow up!

    Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.
