NOW THIS IS FORESIGHT AND CONVICTION

Exemplifying the good that can come with money:

“Almost 50 years ago, fried chicken tycoon David Bamberger used his fortune to purchase 5,500 acres of overgrazed land in the Texas Hill Country. Planting grasses to soak in rains and fill hillside aquifers, Bamberger devoted the rest of his life to restoring the degraded landscape. Today, the land has been restored to its original habitat and boasts enormous biodiversity. Bamberger’s model of land stewardship is now being replicated across the region and he is considered to be a visionary in land management and water conservation.”

    My theory of “over population will destroy the planet” stands. This guy and the solar power, electric car folks aren’t gonna save the earth and their efforts are nothing more than “feel-good” satisfaction. I guess if doing what he did makes him feel good that’s great. Next time the area needs (via: Democrats seeking votes) affordable housing for the bums and middle-east immigrants they’ll move in, bulldoze the place and build another “suburban ghetto”. The Liberal turds in Asheville are doing just that. expanding the city into the suburbs by annexing farmland. The few dopy hillbillies that are left walk away with a toothless smile and with a fist full of one-dollar bills for the land.

    Bamberger did a great thing there. Sadly, there’s no money in it for government, or for politicians; so achievements like his will be few and far between.

    Perhaps President Trump will succeed in changing the EPA & other gov’t busybody agencies enough so that people can once again do what’s right, rather than what is government-approved; I sure hope so.

    As it is now, I’m just left wondering how Bamberger managed to do what he did, without being stopped by the EPA, the US Army Corps of Engineers, or some other governmental body; all for “the sake of the children,” or “to save the planet,” or “climate change,” or some other fatuous idiocy!
