This means that the soil washes out and the land becomes desert. Quite sad...
They have the wrong kind of economic programme and it is part of my beliefs. I do not believe what they are doing is economically stable. There economy is a disaster.

"Earth Day is a good time to cut through all the rhetoric and look at the facts of President Bush's environmental policies. The administration has a solid record on the environment and believes in sensible policies that protect the environment yet allow productive enterprises to flourish.

Here in southwest Missouri, farmers like myself are benefiting from this president's policies. The 2002 farm bill enhances conservation and environmental stewardship. Funding has nearly doubled on these programs since Bush took office. The bill's conservation programs provide up to $38 billion over a decade to restore millions of acres of wetlands, protect habitats, conserve water, and improve streams and rivers near working farms and ranches.

It should be pointed out that at the same time conservation efforts have made an enormous jump, this administration's trade and economic policies have resulted in the highest Agriculture Price Index ever recorded.

Since taking office, the president has committed nearly $3 billion to not only address the $4.9 billion in maintenance backlogs at national parks, but also to preserve park resources.

Another key piece of President Bush's environmental policy deals with improving air quality. The Clean Skies Initiative calls for decreasing power plants' emissions of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and mercury by 70 percent. This historic proposal will bring cleaner air to Americans faster, more reliably and cost effectively than under current law.

Meanwhile, John Kerry continues to talk a good game when it comes to the environment, but like almost everything else, what he says and what he does just don't match up. For example, Kerry says we need to invest in renewable energy, but he won't support a Cape wind farm project even though Greenpeace is begging him to. Turns out Kerry and many other upscale homeowners object to the project, claiming the 130 turbines would mar ocean vistas and harm property values.

You will hear a lot of rhetoric between now and November about President Bush's environmental record. Just remember, the truth is he has accomplished quite a bit, and he will continue to push for common sense policies to protect the environment.

Morris Westfall, Halfway, is a former Missouri state senator."

It's a matter of opinion on if it it okay to drill in arctic refuge or not. There is life there, it wouldn't be a refuge otherwise. On a scale of how much and weather or not it would be okay to destroy it is a matter of opinion. Let's not waste our time arguing about that.
Much of it doesn't have life. It is a barren wasteland. That is what it is. There is nothing for a lot of it.

I think you are lying. I do respect opinions here. I'm going to attack people if they speak lies about the President. He is the leader of the country. You should really think before say something. It often helps.

Well I think you are lying. You dont respect others opinions. You only respect the people that agree with you. You attack the people that have different opinions about Bush, other than you. If they really are lies then just ignore them. Its their opinion, and yours is an opinion too. Altho its a really well formed opinion, its still an opinion.

Well you should think about how others feel before you start calling them idiots or dolts just cuz they form different opinions. That helps too.

You can stop lying about me. I do respect other opinions but I'm going to attack people who attack the president with falsehoods as you are doing.

HAH! Ask anyone here if youve been respectful of others opinions. Even ask the Mods! You may be able to back your points and facts, but youre pretty weak when it comes to backing your "respect" towards others.

And since youve showed that you dont know what an opinion is....
Main Entry: opin·ion
Pronunciation: &-'pin-y&n
Function: noun
1 a : a belief stronger than impression and less strong than positive knowledge b : a formal expression of a judgment or appraisal by an expert —see also opinion testimony at TESTIMONY —compare FACT
2 a : advice or evaluation regarding the legal issues involved in a situation given by an attorney to a client <an opinion of title> called also legal opinion —see also opinion letter at LETTER 1 b : an advisory opinion issued by an authorized public official (as an attorney general) or a recognized body (as the American Bar Association)
3 a : the formal written expression by a court or judge of the reasons and principles of law upon which the decision in a case is based —compare HOLDING, JUDGMENT, RULING
Or if you need more on it.... http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=opinion

You've been attacking America all the time. You are so far to the left, people just don't pay attention to it anymore.
