Nobody could have predicted that eight years of the Bush
administration would result in ever-worsening severe weather caused by
a more rapidly warming planet.
Sure even flooded-out Republicans deserve help, but I wonder if any two-time Bush voters get the connection
between their votes and the fact that their house is underwater. A
President Gore would have spent a trillion dollars on environmental
shit and infrastructure instead of on a new phase of Our Eternal War to Resubjugate Brown People.
Thought it was too late for the Bush administration to do more damage? Think again. They just sentenced the polar bear to death.
The provision of the [Endangered Species Act] that the department is using to lighten the regulatory burden that the listing imposes on the oil and gas industry — known as a 4(d) rule — was designed to permit flexibility in the management of threatened species, as long as the chances of conservation of the species would be enhanced, or at least not diminished.
Kassie Siegel, a lawyer for the Center for Biological Diversity, one of three groups that originally sued to have the polar bear listed as threatened, said Wednesday that the decision was an acknowledgement of “global warming’s urgency,” but that it fell short of helping the polar bear.
“The administration acknowledges the bear is in need of intensive care,” Ms. Siegel said. “The listing lets the bear into the hospital, but then the 4(d) rule says the bear’s insurance doesn’t cover the necessary treatments.”
Thanks to the magic of cool modern technology like lasers and mood-altering HGTV, we are ready as a wacky advertising-soaked society to combine our obsessions with designers and houseplants into one Grimm's fairy tale plot device: logo-branded seeds. You heard me!
Your logo is laser-engraved on two opposite sides of the bean.
Bean arrives not yet planted, so logo can be seen.
The specially designed plastic jar contains vermiculite, a pure soil
that is bacteria-free and helps to keep the logo clear while growing.
Just push bean into the soil and pour water into the container.
The bean will begin to sprout leaves in about seven days.
And that's the end of our floral Dr. Moreau adventure, right? Nuh-unh!
To the recipient’s amazement, the logo will appear on the bean plant itself, on each side of the split bean seed.
The logo will last about a month, while the plant can live up to a year with proper care (instructions included).
At Agitprop, we had to take a break from worrying about the far right and Bush's Operation Enduring War™ to worry about giant Japanese jellyfish. Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water ...
