This sucks

Poor seals.

I've come to a crossroads in my political beliefs. I've long been an advocate of environmental protection, and I feel strongly about the need to reduce carbon emissions. However, it is becoming increasingly apparent that environmental policies are being used as tools for controlling the people. When faced with choosing between personal freedom and "Mother Earth," I choose personal freedom.

Perhaps I'm imagining things, but I recall hearing multiple scientific reports that concluded we had already lost the fight against global warming. If indeed we have lost that fight, isn't the passage of mandatory emissions-reduction legislation a futile exercise?

Don't get me wrong, I'm no fan of industrialization and modern society. Still, I am an individual who values his rights every bit as much as he values the environment.

Heilige scheiße! I haven't posted to this blog in more than two months! With school winding down, it has been an extremely hectic time for me. I believe that my blogging will dramatically increase in July and August.

For now, I wanted to air my displeasure with the government of the state of New York. I am getting much closer to taking political action, for it is becoming increasingly apparent that the rights of citizens of the state of New York are blatantly disregarded by our government. Comparing the wrongs perpetrated by our government in Albany with those of earlier tryannical governments, it is clear that we are nearing levels of abuse unprecedented in modern American history.

I will not stand idle as my children's rights are abolished.
