A few decades ago in Washington State and Oregon, tens of thousand of people made family wage incomes and often good benefits working at logging and mill jobs in small rural towns.


Thanks to our environmentalist lords and masters, most of them were thrown out of work over the Spotted owl.

Of course many fled for the cities. Others pick salal and other green stuff they can sell that is used by florists, or pick mushrooms in forests in season.

I would suppose others are glad to have a job at Wal Mart.

I'd like to hear from any liberals, Democrats or environmentalists who want to apologize for that war on the working class.
