Ken Burn's The National Parks
#1
Did y'all watch this great PBS documentary? It was just on, and it was fab-u-luss. If you missed it, you owe yourself to watch. True American patriots will be sure to watch it, or better yet, visit a national park yourself.

National park. Interesting concept. Created by the GOVERNMENT. Threatened by greedy libertarian right wing capitalists. Paid for and maintained by the GOVERNMENT. Opposed by industry. The GOVERNMENT won and managed to save these parks. We must remain ever vigilant against the destructive forces of the unregulated CAPITALISTS.

The greatest friend ever in Washington of the National Parks?
FDR

Let it sink in. Big government is GOOD!

The right wing:
Enemies of nature
Enemies of the environment
Enemies of true non-materialistic spirituality
Enemies of Jesus
Enemies of health care for all Americans (heal the sick as Jesus did)
Enemies of art
Enemies of homosexuals
Enemies of artists
Enemies of life
Enemies of humanity

Resist the death culture of the American right wing. The fight against them is ETERNAL.

Actually, enacting the National Park Service, and setting aside land for safekeeping, is a good idea. However, they should have long ago been turned over to the individual states for control. The Feds have no constitutional basis for stealing lands from the individual states, without their express permission.

Uncle Teddy was a Progressive, and you already know what I think of Progressives. He set the stage for more intrusion by later presidents, and for that he rates near the bottom of the presidential barrel with me. The best presidents of the 20th century were Ronald Reagan, and Calvin Cooledge, and the jury is out on which ranks at the top. At least domestically anyway. Wink1

Cooledge was an enemy of the parks. Typical.

And you have evidence to back up that accusation?

Ken Burn's recent documentary goes into the roles of many presidents, including Cooledge.
It is also PASSIONATE about the need for these parks to be NATIONAL parks and NOT state parks. It would be instructive for you to see this show; it blows your entire political philosophy to smithereens.

While Burns is quite gifted at producing good shows, he is still politically slanted,......to the left. I take that into consideration before making final judgements.

AGAIN, please show me your proof of Silent Calvin's guilt, as you suggest. A link would help. You CAN do that, can you not?

My source is the Ken Burn's documentary. Watch it for the pretty pictures anyway even if you think it is infected with leftist thought.

BTW, when I do give you a link proving my point, then you just ignore me anyway, so why bother? Like when I proved to you that 65 percent of Americans are in favor of the public option for health care, then you mysteriously went silent.

I do not ignore you TQ. Trying to ignore you is like overlooking the hippopotamus in one's swimming pool.

Now, as for linking, you know that a forum is predicated upon Facts, and the linked reference to them. If you make a statement, then you will most likely be called out on it.

Again, look for a link to your statement, because you are just using HEARSAY, and that is not admissible. A Link Please!

That is a start, but not good enough. I want to see where Silent Cal was actively against the national park system and WHY he was against it.

A link please?!

For someone, who is supposed to be so smart, research your point. Use Google; read up on things. That is what I do, so why cannot you? Kindly use your brain for something other than a seat cushion.

This is not some Kook Fringe forum. Here you are expected to back up your contention with facts. I realize that is a unique thing for many on the Left, but we practice that here at Ai-Jane. Come On TQ, let's get with it.
