Gaylord Nelson's "Co-Incidence": Not.

Gaylord Nelson famously created "Earth Day."

Less famously--until recently--he signed public-employee-union legislation for Wisconsin.

But about "Earfff Day":

'It is no accident it is on Lenin's birthday, April 22,' he said. 'It wasn't a coincidence. I knew some of the kids involved . They thought, "What better day than Lenin's birthday because capitalism destroys the environment?" Most environmental ecologists believed the source of environmental degradation was the selfishness of capitalist owners. So we had to have a socialist system with a manager instead of an owner.'

And that manager would be the State.

Nelson, of course, laid the date off to 'co-incidence.'

Now you know better.

That the Soviet Bloc polluted far more than any capitalist system was (and is) immaterial to them. It is always the fault of the capitalists, regardless of the facts.

Dad29, why don't even accuse Gaylord Nelson of being a communist AND a homosexual. I mean, you know, with his first name and all.

Progressive/Communist

Different sides of the same statist coin.

Central planning by a small group of elites that know better than you. Just ask them, they'll tell you.

And if you don't know the links between the Greenies, the Unions, and the Commies.... you haven't been looking, or paying attention.

They know the linx, Neo.

They don't give a damn--and kinda hoped that WE wouldn't know about them.

That must be the reason the FBI chose April 22 as the date to seize Elian Gonzalez to return him to...Cuba, a communist state! OMG!
