Tree-Huggers Gone Wild

Just when I thought I might be in store for a normal week, I get hit square in the face with this one.  Thank you environmental greenie wacka-doodles for this one.

According to FOX News this morning, the State of New York has once again topped the stupid meter.  As most states across this nation, and indeed, the nation itself is in financial crisis, we have found yet another brilliant way to toss away hard earned funds from the tax-payers.  Get this, the department of transportation in New York has spent tons of money, (money they don’t have), on new road signs.  Keep in mind, money is needed for more worthy projects like infrastructure, education and public services.  These signs are being placed along roadways near lakes and ponds, and other bodies of water.  Basically, they are signs warning drives to proceed with caution on account of the fact that FROGS may enter the roadway!  Holy stinkin’ cow, for real?!

But wait, there’s more.  These brainy elites in government have figured out how to waste even more money on this stupid project.  The signs are all hinged in the middle.  Why you ask?  So the state can pay workers to go out as the weather gets cold and fold the sign down, so as to not be visible.  Why you ask?  Because frogs don’t hop in the snow!  Oh, and obviously, the state will have to pay workers to go around again in the spring to fold the signs up.

Thank God for these geniuses in government that are on this mission to save us from ourselves.  I mean, what would we lowly citizenry do on our own?  I would have thought to myself that perhaps the frog wanted to die.  Maybe he is on a little froggy suicide mission.  Maybe tadpole mama was  caught creepin with the froggy milkman.  Who knows?  Not for me to judge, but if froggy is lookin’ to go to that lillypad in the sky, who am I to stop him.  But no!  Big government wants me to swerve into oncoming traffic risking the lives of pesky humans to save this little amphibian. Hey, I guess these gifted folk in leadership haven’t thought that by swerving out of the way, that perhaps we would turn right and go off the road and damage a tree!  There goes the ozone, and hello more global warming, right?  Come on already people!  Can we just get along with our lives without being freaks about every goofy idea that pops into a liberals head?  I’m all for the sanctity of life, don’t get me wrong.  But, here’s an idea for you.  How about we start with placing some value on human life and stop killing babies in the womb?  Maybe we could stop the slaughter of human innocents for, oh I don’t know, a minute or two?  Could we maybe get on that trip for a while?  Maybe instead of spending millions upon millions of tax payer dollars on saving frogs, and we could also save countless millions of tax payer dollars by not supporting abortion clinics, and planned parenthood.  Then, with all that money saved, maybe we could balance the books?  Or hey, here’s an idea liberals.  If you can’t get over NOT spending other peoples money, then spend this money on things like saving unborn children!  Maybe put some money into adoption agencies.  Or parenting education.  Nice idea hmmm?

Well, I gotta jump off my soap box.  Time to get in the car and run down a few amphibians and reptiles…and maybe a squirrel or two as I head out to lunch.  Oh yeah, I’ll be doing this in my Cadillac SRX.  Yes sir, it’s an 8 cylinder monster gas guzzler.  Just trying to do my part.  Don’t worry Canada, y ou don’t have thank me.  Maybe this year you guys won’t freeze to death!
