Major, In the left's arrogance, they think they can control everything, including the weather. They've been fiddling around with the weather for decades, and now they are dropping acid from the airplanes in order to alter it. It's little wonder that farmers are having trouble with their soil being too acid. Blights such as bean rust, and leaf curl on peach trees need acidic soil in order to thrive. It's also why we're seeing so much algae and moss on roofs, vinyl siding and blocks around people's homes. Many fields are covered with broom sage, iron weed, thistles and briars. Weeds need acid soil in order to thrive, and we are seeing these invasive plants taking over.

Personally, I think it's the environuts way of driving small farms out of business. The soil goes acid so quickly it takes more lime than ever to get the ph back to normal, and until that happens, noting works right. With acid soil, you can fertilize a field until the cows come home and the fertilizer just sits there.

Greed and power; 2 top motives of the liberal left. Control everyone and everything. No wonder the left are getting so much more angry; they see it all falling apart as support for their socialist 'experiment' gets dwindling support daily.

Even Hillary Clinton claims 'your children belong to us all.' Left in this country and around the world have major lack of morals and common sense and they show it daily.

No drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we're looking for the sources of our troubles, we shouldn't test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed, and love of power. – P. J. O'Rourke (1992)

Here's your enemy for this week, the government says. And some gullible Americans click their heels and salute – often without knowing who or even where the enemy of the week is. – Charley Reese (1998)

Major, just a few months ago, a well-known scientist hooked to the climate change scam decided to come forward and blow the lid off this massive lie. He was found dead in a swamp before he could let the cat out of the bag. I don't know why these people announce what they are up, giving the henchmen for Al Gore and his band of merry murderers advance notice so they can make plans to silence these people.

Why not keep your mouth shut, gather your information, and go public without any advance warning to anyone. Once the cat is out of the bag, these thugs would be less likely to come after you thinking your were being watched by security and the authorities. I could name a couple media outlets that would keep your location hidden, and they'd love to get their hands on the proof exposing this scam.

Every time I see one of these projects get underway, it makes my liver quiver because I know someone is going to lose a piece of land. If they don't lose it, they are left holding the bag for the tax bill on a piece of land they can do nothing with. It's like a power line right of way. They steal a strip of land across your property to run a power line, stop you from building under or near it, and they leave you holding the bag for taxes. If you own a large farm, these right of ways can consume several acres of land. Some of them are 300 feet wide or more and can travel for a mile or more on a large farm. For every 200 feet in distance, the farmer loses an acre and a half of land that is unusable, but they still have to pay taxes on it. That's why we fought to get the last power line stopped, and we won that one, but most aren't that fortunate.

Two things: More indoctrination of the left to your kids. And two: more power to idiots to TAKE your property.

In a few years, local citizens can expect to see significant changes in this highly visible pasture area where horses once grazed.

Yeah well...this liberal hack's house is probably sitting where horses used to graze too...wouldn't it be ironic if govt came and took HER land??

I would like to see some wealthy folks claim 'eminent domain' on all these environmentalists property---bet they'd fight it. Nothing but a bunch of idiots and hypocrites. And when most of them try to 'make something better' they usually end up making things worse! Look at EPA'S chemical for 'clean coal.' We still don't know the 'effects' of that chemical as the idiots of the left NEVER think of 'consequences' FIRST! They just take off and run with the first idiotic things that come to their little pea-sized brains and never THINK!

These are not natural wetlands, they are neglected areas that were once useful land. The government loves these areas because they can go in and designate them as wetlands and add more property to the already massive federal landbank. I know a man who lives near Bowden who has a 30 foot circular marshy spot smack dab in the middle of his yard. He can't do anything with it because some nitwit submitted it as a potential wetland and the government came in and stopped him from draining it.

If I was him, I'd drain it, fill it and plant grass on it and tell the government to take a hike. They don't have a legal right of way into it, so what are they going to do? Each year, the government steals more land from landowners using their screwball wetlands legislation. We don't need any more swamps in WV. This is not Louisiana.
