The Sacramento Bee posted an article on November 29, 2010, “California’s Poverty Grows Three Times As Fast As Population.”
Christmas is coming. There will be many young people happy to have something to eat let alone the joy of new toys or clothes. Heartless, radical environmentalists can take a bow for much of the poverty and heartache in California and across the nation.
As I read the data from the Census Bureau report, I was struck by the county and school districts in poverty areas. Two of them have been hit hard by radical environmental state and federal laws and regulations. Radical environmentalism, pure and simple, is heartless. The attempt to place a smiley face on saving the earth, animals, trees, rivers, lizards, fish, frogs and owls have taken a toll on human life. Senators Boxer, Feinstein, Congress members Mike Thompson, Pelosi, and many others receiving donations from environmental groups have set the human being aside.
Two of the hardest hit counties are Fresno and Tehama. The Fresno unified school district shows a whopping 44 percent poverty rate. Fresno County is infamous for the political drought shutting water off to farmers and ranchers in the guise of saving the Delta Smelt. Senators Boxer and Feinstein are proud of placing children in food lines. In fact, Boxer stated they would make sure that plenty of food was in the food banks. Isn’t that nice? Would she like to join them? She so often comes up with pithy little sayings like that.
Tehama County’s Reed Creek school district shows a poverty rate of 43.3 percent. Tehama County is also the target of radical environmentalist. Thirty-five lawsuits against Sierra Pacific Industries by radical environmental groups, such as Battle Creek Alliance, have attempted to stop the remaining logging in the area. Environmentalists have continuously bombarded the areas with lawsuits costing time and money, not to mention placing jobs on hold.
The same tactic has been used in Plumas County, CA. Plumas was once one of the richest counties in the nation. Now it is one of the poorest. Only one mill continues in Plumas. The school districts were the best in the nation. NOT NOW. They are attempting to forge ahead in Siskiyou County, CA and Grant County, OR as you have seen in our series on Defending Rural America.
Radical environmentalists truly want us back in the dark ages. They don’t want homes built, cars running, planes flying or anything that uses energy or other natural resources. Lunacy has set in. If we could transport these people back in time about 60 years, they would be laughed out of their neighborhoods. In their opinion, God’s pinnacle of creation, the human being, should not exist or thrive. They do NOT want you, your children or grandchildren to thrive. They do not want you to use the abundant resources that God has given our nation. It is diabolical, evil, godless, and inhumane to place lower life forms over those made in God’s image.
There will be a price to pay one day. I for one will be looking forward to the shocked looked on their faces when confronted in judgment for their lack of compassion, on the human race, by the very Sovereign who created them.
God mandated that MAN was to “….rule OVER the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (Genesis 1:28) HE did not say to be subservient to them. In Romans 1:25 it states: “For they exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.” Worshipping nature, known as Gaia, is the LIE. In verse 28 it says “God gave them over to a depraved mind” when they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer. Depravity is symptomatic in bowing to a fish, to an owl, to a lizard. Visualize that. When the smiley face is removed from the radical environmental tactics it ends in depravity, and death. Killing people and their land is depraved.
This isn’t just a political battle, this is a spiritual battle that is entrenched in our country and around the globe.
