    •  ever heard of the Tillamook burn? (11+ / 0-)

      Big forest fire.  The CCA paid men to dig holes.  Others put seedlings in the holes.  Yet more filled in the holes.  A perfect example of digging holes and filling them back up.

      Now there is a huge forest back where there was only ash. Properly logged and replanted again and again - that forest will live forever and allow the old growth around it to continue unmolested.

      We have a lot of money in this country to pay people to work - we just have a certain subsection of our population called assholes who think that anything that doesn't give them personal immediate benefit is "worthless" or "expensive."

      We need roads paved.  We need ditches dug.  We need undergrowth cleared. We need factories built so we can manufacture things again rather than importing everything from China. We NEED a lot of things done and have plenty of people who are both capable and willing to do it.

      And we sail and we sail and we never see land, just the rum in the bottle and a pipe in my hand...
