    you have to click on the link there, "bog destruction and developement". The directory structure on the site makes it so I can't directly link to that part of the site



    Edit: I think I fixed it so it'll go right to the site

    Nick gave me this link and I was sickened by this. The sad thing is that this is happening all the time. I've seen it time and time again in NC. I can't really think of any words to say right now, maybe I can find the words later.

    If you have never read my signature read it now, This is exactly what it talks about.

    Yeah, how dare these plants grow right where my store should be!

    As to why, well someone decided that money comes first. Did the former owners of this land care, or even know, about what they had? Did our government officials act to preserve this National Treasure? Did *anyone* speak for these plants? Did anyone reach into their pockets for the money needed to prevent this from happening? Who raised their voice in protest? Did anyone educate the public as to the rare wonder right there in front of their very eyes, a treasure for future generations? Start a petition? Or were they all to busy being hypnotized by the T.V., being spoon fed a bunch of crap about what really makes life worthwhile? "I want more THINGS"!

    Everytime I see a site like this I want to weep. I want to find out who did this and, and...........

    Would YOU let this happen? Would YOU pay to prevent it? What if it meant giving up that new car, that new sofa? Would it be worth it? This is WAR people, and the battle needs YOU to put it on the line! Until we start getting involved, the money interests are going to roll right over places like this! Apathy is not going to save these habitats. Write to your elected officials NOW, send them the above URL, and tell them environmental concern needs to start getting some attention NOW. Shake off the apathy, and don't wait for someone else to do it for you.

    I am sick, sad and sorry.

    I hate these people...... I would rather look at flavas then shovel crap from that restruant into my life, Everyone, Not including us and the animal lovers, thinks for themselves and not even the The rare SP. of Butterfly or plant, they don't care that they are killing something that we might never again see in the wild, We can always see furniture stores or
    Restruants!!!! This just sickens me, Let me tell you anthor story just like this other digusting story,


    Last summer when we moved to our new house me and My Mom rode our bikes to this nice little nature reserve thingy some body made, There was everything I wanted, Fields Of grass and Wild flowers, A little creek where when you went near the edge frogs darted from my quick grasp as I tyed to Identify them, Woods that were filled With Majestic trunks and beds of moss one could lay on all night (IF there were no Misquitos...) and small pockets of short green grass covered in dew with Dragon flys and damselflys buzzing everywhere around us. A few weeks ago we drove by it and guess what we saw.....





    The whole area was fenced off, we looked through the fence and saw something that was so disgusting I cursed under my breath, B U L L D O Z E R S. everything was torn down, no wild flowers,no Wheatish grass,no trees. nothing, total oblivion. Probably houses were going to be built. This angered me so greatly that I wanted a sudden decrease in earths population to stop the need for so many moronic areas of human colonization. I am soon going to write a letter to those stupid senaters who Just turn thier back on the Mayhem. I am royally ticked off.

    Now my posting abilities are back on thanks to Lynda [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] I will add my reply here....

    That sickened my day here. Why would people do such a thing? Because they are un-educated on the United States and are paid big bucks to run a machine. I am very displeased with the way the Dept. of Environmental Conservation is set up.....I mean look at the Dept! They might as well be the Dept of Environmental Destruction. Up here they are useless as well just enforcing laws about deer rather than do something for ALL wildlife. If I had tons of money i would buy all that land and fence it off to protect it....why don't people care anymore? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
