'Do-gooders' deal in lies
As a natural resource producer, I have spent my whole life trying to understand the mindset of the American revolutionaries who are trying to turn our country back into the Europe our ancestors fled over 390 years ago.
As a young logger dodging slab-pulled end hooks and bumping knots on the landing, I first heard them called do-gooders. Then people started calling them little old ladies in tennis shoes, then environmentalists.
While battling spotted owl designation in Northern California I met with a young man who showed me a map of America that showed citizen distribution being within towns and cities, much like in Europe. No rural population. It was drawn up by a Who's Who list of top environmentalist organizations. At the time I discounted it, but now, knowing that these leftists are perfectly happy for their goals to be gained incrementally over time, I believe that those goals are real....
To destroy the dams on the Klamath River and welcome wolves back into California ... is part of that plan I saw many years ago. If these people are allowed to continue as they are, they will over time accomplish a bloodless revolution right under our noses and suffer no consequences, thereby destroying the futures of our descendants. I've noticed that about these people. While using deception and lies, they always play it safe.
I have a saying: It takes a certain type of person to turn the wolves loose on his neighbor and feel good about it.
