    we are ALL special...no wait...that'd mean none of us were...wait, what?

    so my comment...most of the people that i know who watch fox news seem to disreguard anything environmental for the most part, unless it's on their front porch. not trying to start trouble...just a jab at FOX.

    i hate the "go green" movement because it is based on half truths and scare tactics. having said that, i am very pro environment. i love nature, and hiking and all that fun crap. i think its terrible that some companies get away with doing what they do. i hate seeing camp sites covered in trash. i come from a family of hunters and did my fair share when i was younger. my dad has always said something i believe whole heartedly. "you'll never find a bigger environmentalist than a hunter". i'm not a bleeding heart liberal and i have no problem putting one between bambi's eyes. but since i enjoy the outdoors it only makes sense to protect it. i do get sad when i see stuff like this. unfortunately right now there is no other alternative. we cant stop using plastic, but we cant get rid of it.

    RCBS, LOL I couldn't tell if your original post was sarcastic or not. I didn't see one of these ---> :rolleyes: I assumed it wasn't, so sorry about that. :sorry:

    Thanks for that Fox News clip... It is kind of crazy.

    no worries man. :)

    it just kills me that this "global warming is a crock of sh!t, so all the pollution we are making isn't hurting anything." mentality is coming about. i have my own theory on pollution...there's just too damned many people. i'm not a "greeny", but i do have common sense.

    let me clarify that i believe ALL the media outlets are BSing us these days for their own gain...FOX is just my favorite to pick on. ;)

    "global warming", "climate change" and "go green" are three phrases that irk me.

    is the earth warming? yes. is it manmade, natural, or a combination of both? i don't know. is the crap coming out of the coal stacks good for the earth? most definately not.
