Endangered Species And...

I try to avoid politics on the blog because it's something most of us feel strongly about, but for me endangered species, global change and environmental protection, even though I don't always agree with all laws, transcends political parties.



AND....
I'm going to be offline the rest of the week. Have a great one and leave the light on for me.

AND...

A BELATED Happy Birthday to our blogger pal Adam.

AND.....


Remembering one of America's greatest heroes, John McCain. A man that put country before party.

  2. How I wish that endangered species, global change and environmental protection, DID transcends political parties. It should. World-wide.
    A happy birthday to Adam.
    Enjoy your week away. We will keep the light on.

    1. It should transcend indeed, EC. I'm afraid if global change isn't gotten under control soon, and the critters and environment aren't protected, it will be too late.
      Thanks for leaving the light on. It guided me home.

  3. I have written my senators and congressmen to let them know how I feel about several of these bills that are in committee right now. It's just one more reason Earth Day was created. With this president, we take one step forward, and three steps back in the environmental arena.

    Happy birthday Adam.

    I will NEVER forget what our president said about McCain. For those who don't know, he said McCain was NOT a hero. A HERO would NOT have been captured!! This was said by the man people voted into office.

  8. I will watch the clip tomorrow, but I can guess how it goes. McCain was a very odd politician, a Republican but a decent and sincere person. I heard he asked for Obama to read his obituary at his funeral.

    1. That's right, Andrew. He asked both Obama and Bush to speak. He was one of the few bipartisans left. He will leave a huge hole in our government and our lives.

  11. I remember Trump totally ruined the Al Smith dinner in 2016 as he didn't even get the point of the comedic event, like how he has ruined everything else about this country.

  13. Happy Birthday to Adam. And farewell, John McCain -- what a remarkable man and life. I can only think of one person I would like to be an endangered species. Any guesses who?

  14. Kicked my out , I work a lot of research and one would be amazed how many people work just to keep a species going.Sad to throw away. I have worked Monarch Migration for 25 year out of the U of KS.It will start soon.Prairie would not be here if we hadn't worked to save and repair.

    1. RIP indeed. He's certainly earned it. Though, I imagine he's arguing with someone:)

  17. John McCain set a standard of honor few leaders can or will meet.

  18. Enjoy your week away. Ugg Trump is such a moron. The only animal that should be endangered is that thing on his head.

  19. Don’t get me started on that orange buffoon...I just get more and more angry especially when the animals are at risk and the only Defense they have is us! I don’t agree with the politics of John McCain but he was one courageous, and honourable man that had no problem standing up to bullies. He is one politician I respect
