Response to H2O Man (Original post)

46. Bernie Sanders is to Hillary Clinton as Hillary Clinton is to a Republican.

Someone has to have the desire, the will, and the courage to take a stand against greedy, wealthy powerful commercial interests, to at least try to alter the course of the insane environmental destruction.

To paraphrase Alanis Obamsawin ~

*The US operates on a depletion economy which leaves destruction in its wake. Republicans and neoliberals are driven by a terrible sense of deficiency. When the last tree is cut, the last fish is caught, and the last river is polluted; when to breathe the air is sickening, you will realize, too late, that their wealth is not in your bank accounts and that you canít eat their money.*

The Scorpion and the Frog

A scorpion and a frog meet on the bank of a stream and the
scorpion asks the frog to carry him across on its back. The
frog asks, "How do I know you won't sting me?" The scorpion
says, "Because if I do, I will die too."

The frog is satisfied, and they set out, but in midstream,
the scorpion stings the frog. The frog feels the onset of
paralysis and starts to sink, knowing they both will drown,
but has just enough time to gasp "Why?"

The scorpion replied,

"Its my nature."

Given a choice, I'd rather be bitten by a copperhead than a Mojave rattler. But what I'd really like would be to just watch a garter snake eat the bugs that are destroying my garden.

May not be able to reply, I'm leaving for a remote area with no internet for awhile.

Thanks for your attempt at encouragement.
