The asshole strikes again!!!

"Trump aims to open vital U.S. forest to logging, drilling, mining ...Plus, Deportation threatens life of immigrant who helped FDA research"

"Rachel Maddow reports on the Trump administration's loosening of restrictions on methane, and plans to open the Tongass National Forest in Alaska to logging, mining, and drilling, despite a report by Trump's own USDA describing the vital role of the forest in the context of the world's climate."

2. What would Putin demand?

Everything Trump does, I assume is from a directive given by Putin.

4. tRump is doing everything he can to reverse

federal land and environmental protection regulations, policies and management plans of the past 4+ decades. He is overseeing an outright assault on hard won, deliberate, scientifically conceived and prudent conservation measures that Congress and former administrations have enacted or put in place in the face of daunting corporate and myopic local public opposition/opponents who favor extractive uses for profit over every other alternative. Regulations, laws, policies and resource management plans put in place to ensure the sustenance and conservation of clean water and air; healthy, vibrant ecosystems; and national as well as regional natural treasures of immense uniqueness, significance and importance for a variety of uses and purposes.

Another example happening right now is the bulldozing of lands in Organ Pipe National Monument to prepare ground for construction of tRumpís bullshit, purposeless wall which began only a week ago specifically at the shit-for-brainís orders. Thatís how insidious this lame ass excuse for a humanís agenda is. He specifically singled out a fragile but important ecosystem to set bulldozers loose on his wall construction. As I understand it, he also hand-picked the contractor. Google it for more.

14. Julia Butterfly probably accomplished more just tree sitting.

Spikes or threats of spikes can slow down a logging operation but it's too hard to make it economically unviable for the company so that they'll leave.

I have no idea what's up with them. I haven't even looked at the group for 10+ years.

9. Well, I can almost top that. I just read an article about detained immigrant girls who had blood

seeping through their pants because they're menstruating and issued only 1 sanitary pad a day. Can you fucking believe something like that is happening in our country???????

Editing to add: I said girls because the lawsuit seemed to be dealing with young girls. I imagine all pre-menopausal women are in this fix.

10. Who benefits from these actions?

And how do we make them pay going forward?

If their profits were to be at risk by concerted efforts to boycott their products then maybe we could ameliorate the impacts. Or at least the motivations for their looting and pillaging.

15. Most of these things are being about being as mean as possible.

I suspect Stephen Miller is behind it.

11. You gotta admit, the man is highly skilled at dreaming up ways to screw up the world.

Imagine if such creativity was put to good use.
