You thought America was nuts before? the left has now completely jumped the shark. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated an environmental permit using Doctor Seuss as their legal rationale.
The pipeline would have crossed through two national forests, so why was it stopped?
“We trust the United States Forest Service to ‘speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues.’ ”
This was actually part of the written opinion. The problem? It is a quote from "The Lorax" by Doctor Seuss.
Based on that -
A review of the permit records led the court to decide that the Forest Service “abdicated its responsibility to preserve national forest resources.”
“This conclusion is particularly informed by the Forest Service’s serious environmental concerns that were suddenly, and mysteriously, assuaged in time to meet a private pipeline company’s deadlines,” the opinion reads.
The court granted a petition to review the Forest Service’s Record of Decision and Special Use Permit, vacate the Forest Service’s decisions and remand to the Forest Service for proceedings consistent with the new opinion.
So environmental activist left judges are now basing legal decisions not on the constitution, but using Doctor Seuss to justify their ideology.
I am willing to bet no one has even ever heard this story, but this is how the left constantly acts. "Any means necessary" to achieve their ideological break down of America. It astounds me how so many on the left here (this website as well as in general) take advantage of what America has given them or they have earned simply by virtue of being in America, and want to tear it completely apart and destroy it for the "social justice" model.
And YES Opher - I will believe and state until my dying days that you would not have ever had the opportunity that you have had to not only spout your ridiculous ideology, but to say anything at all or travel as you have if the US hadn't propped up much of the European economy for the last century. As well as defending you from becoming a fascist dictatorship twice.
I have seen nothing here rational from FJ, Opher, Mischka, Bill, etc that ever offers an answer to real issues, simply just platitudes, ideology, or how to become more statist.
Please defend how Doctor Seuss is now setting a legal precedent? And how none of you on the left ever present solutions to any of the big issues, you simply chastise those who don't agree with you for being contemptible.
Because there is no alternative to freedom and liberty that has EVER been successful.
