gassy says.."When you croak, unless your family chooses to place you in a hole, in an unpreserved state, you will not remain/become "part of the ecosystem". I have had a couple of my pets cremated and they now reside in urns at my home, never to be a part of the ecosystem again."
Gassy most of that "pet" you had cremated went up the exhaust stack and turned into a gas. The remains (or ashes) you have in the urn will someday be poured out by one of your relatives or someone who has acquired the urn. At that point the remains are returned to earth from whence they came. We can delay that process but never stop it.
gassy sez "You're not naturally a "part of the ecosystem" because when you die (same with me), you will be embalmed or cremated."
Wow....don't know where to start here. Gassy... matter, and in our case organic matter, can neither be created nor destroyed. When we die our bodies become very much a part of the ecosystem, it simply changes form just like any other type of organic matter.
gassy says "The human race is a termite to the planet"
I happen to believe I'm just as much a part of the eco system as any other living thing. I think you nailed exactly what you cultists believe. These cultists believe if a bear poops in the woods it's a wonderful thing.....plant life springs up around it, bugs start to work in it and the food chain take off and flourishes, but if I do it, it's pollution! Go figure!!!
alpo, who by the way, is a registered republican, says "The burning of fossil fuels is not a Earth supported action. It was likely never supposed to happen. It is clear that the earth's cleaning mechanism is not able to keep up with the damage being done."
Don't those clunkers you have at your junkyard burn fossil fuels? In addition, after having seen them, I would suspect they are not very efficient. If you really believe this garbage, why would you attempt to put more on the street to pollute? If you global warming cultists would walk the walk, you might be a little more creditable.
gassy says "Goodell is responsible for punishing player misbehavior. He totally mishandled the Rice case."
I understand Goodell is responsible for punishing player behavior. But he works at the pleasure of the owners, so you gotta believe they (the Ravens) provided input as to what happened and the type of punishment they would like to see and think appropriate.
Roger Goodell is trying to be made the scapegoat here and he should not be. Consider what he has to deal with:
Rice did not work for the commissioner...he works for the Baltimore Ravens who have their own front office, owner and coach. Their recommendations had to weigh heavily and if he exceeded those....see number three.
He also has the players union to contend with.
Last and certainly not least he is white and Rice is black. Can you imagine what a field day the race hustlers Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, Jesse Jackson, et al, could make of this. It shouldn't be a race issue but leave it to these guys to make it one. Obama is probably chomping at the bits to weigh in on this anyway. It's not like he hasn't before.
Q. Does anyone know how you can tell the family in the toon is not the Alpo ( who, by the way is a registered republican)family?
A. The man depicted does not have a stump.
Sorry the link above didn't work.
Max makes some good points....I doubt that Joe Six Pack would be held to the same standard as an executive with the company.
alpo, who by the way is a registered republican asks..."How long before the Military overrules the President"
Since you like to think of yourself as the smartest one in the room, do you know of a coup in the works by the "corpsemen?"
