OMG - For those not savvy means, Oh My GOD! People, fellow Americans, who flocked to Katrina devastation are now canceling their vacation plans to sun bath on cleaner beaches. I am now wondering, just how many are progressives!
Before you flog me, let me tell you a personal story. Back in the early 60's there were two oil spills in the Long Island Sound on the northern shore of Long Island, NY. We had a spot we went to often in the summer months and I learned to swim in the "Sound".
My parents are Republicans and rather than cancel our summer vacation, they chose to still go and teach us a valuable lesson. It was about the stewardship of our country and it's resources.
Rather than splash in the cool waves, we helped rake oil tainted sand. We caught seagulls and other water fowl covered in the smelly tar. Carefully, we helped handle these wild birds, slowly washing the muck from their feathers. The dead fish clean up was the worst.
Yet, as a child, my family and many friends showed up and tirelessly worked, then we all went back to our homes across the country and resumed our lives.
Lesson learned? You need not be a liberal to claim a love for nature. We as "Conservatives" are interested in "Conservation" by our very own nature. So once again, who is canceling their reservations? Hello Al Gore, where are you hiding now???
