I love to see people enjoy their money

Today, whilst on my ranch with two hired hands digging a ditch, a sleek Bell
Helicopter came in for a landing nearby. It's just my neighbor, at the
Diamond G Ranch, taking a jaunt to check his stock on the nearby hillsides.
One of which is White Lightning, one of the top rodeo bulls in the world at
this time. The sleek copper craft goes in and out, so many times that one
becomes jaded to its activity.
Ah, just be nice to fire up a ship of that grace and cost and go look at
your bovines. I love to see people enjoy their money.

Fluffy Toilet Paper Said to Be Worse for Environment Than Hummers
Sunday, March 01, 2009
That super-soft toilet paper you're fond of using? It's an ecological disaster, environmentalists say.
Millions of trees are harvested throughout the Americas ? including rare old-growth forests in Canada ? to sustain the United States? obsession with quilted, ultra-soft, multi-ply toilet paper, the New York Times reported.

Americans like their toilet tissue soft: exotic confections that are silken, thick and hot-air-fluffed.

"Other countries are far less picky about toilet tissue. In many European nations, a rough sheet of paper is deemed sufficient. Other countries are also more willing to use toilet tissue made in part or exclusively from recycled paper."
This is why they are known as "turd world nations"

"Lenin called them "useful idiots," those people living in liberal democracies who by giving moral and material support to a totalitarian ideology in effect were braiding the rope that would hang them. Why people who enjoyed freedom and prosperity worked passionately to destroy both is a fascinating question, one still with us today. Now the useful idiots can be found in the chorus of appeasement, reflexive anti-Americanism, and sentimental idealism trying to inhibit the necessary responses to another freedom-hating ideology, radical Islam"

This is a perfect example of liberal, politically-corrupted "science", and WTF is it doing on Fox? The original NYT article was a pure liberal fluff piece, with a key phrase "some percentage of old-growth." While TP may be made of virgin paper, it's usually made from tree farms. From the Wiki:
"A February 25, 2009 New York Times article said that between 25% and 50% of the toilet paper used in the United States comes from tree farms in the U.S. and South America, with most of the rest coming from second growth forests, and only a small percentage coming from virgin forests."
P.S: Why didn't the freakazoid suggest a wholesale changeover to the bidet? Then we could waste fresh water instead of farmed trees!

I was in West Germany a long time ago, in 1997 IIRC. I stayed in a hostel and looked out of the window once. What I saw was very strange, a woman walked out of her house, sat under a bush and peed. That was in a yard between multistory houses, not a private backyard. Turns out that that was the way she was saving money on her water bill.

The other side is number of hours a month to maintain rating. But a good manager will watch the stock.
