Sounds frighteningly familiar : LUSENET : Beyond the Sidewalks : One Thread

I was reading about Rachel Carson yesterday and came upon this quote by her:

"A politically minded administration returns us to the dark ages of unrestrained exploitation and destruction."

Kinda sounds like the present administration doesn't it?

". . . returns us to the dark ages of unrestrained exploitation and destruction." That part sounds like our admin. I'd argue, though, they're driven, not by politics, but by profits and paybacks/payoffs. Still doesn't mean I like them!

LOL,,,yes, this is sounding like the present administration. I am laughing because I thought you were going to comment on the other thread regarding the CS forum and the remark from the poor lurker that could never get our humor any how. That remark was also frighteningly familar and I am really wishing that people who didn't like us or miss us would just leave us alone.

Joy, on the surface, I agree with you, that the "good ol' boys are driven by the bottom line. And perhaps they are. But isn't it likely that all this is really about POWER and CONTROL?

JOJ......I think you might really be closest to the truth. I forget that to the "good o"boys power and control is the biggest thing.

Power and control, duh, the new administration said the economy was faltering and look how the stock market tanked, I realize it had been in a downslide for about a year, course when it looked like the tax cut was going to go forward it started creeping back up, then Bush started in about drilling in Alaska and gas prices went up significantly and lets not forget about the rolling blackouts CA and warnings that it can happen across the good ole US of A. Power and control, power and control, power and control. . . . . . .we need more refineries and more power plants and lets not forget about how clean and nonpolluting those nuclear power plants are, ad nauseam.
