    Just like the labor movement in this country which was founded upon bringing some fairness to the workers of this country, the environmental movement has quickly transformed itself from a help to a hinderance.

    Fair wages, safe working conditions, and reasonable work rules were the driving force behind the creation of unions. Once those objectives were achieved, the movement didn't stop there. They had to continue to make more and more demands in order to increase the power of their leaders to the point that they are choking the very businesses they depend upon.

    Likewise, the environmental movement was created as the masses recognized the need to put clean air, land, and water as a priority for businesses. Unfortunately, the movement is largely controlled by radicals who will not be content until all progress is halted in the name of mother Earth.

    How long do you think it's going to take to get regulatory approval for the keystone pipeline? We're being strangled by regulation, nimby and absolutely nothing anywhere near anybody.
