I’m Still Out Here On The Road Less Traveled,

Trying To Enjoy What’s Left of Nature’s Bliss;

But I Should Never Have Turned On the Radio,

Very Sadly, No One Seems To Care About This.

 

But I Could Care Less About Her Teen-Age Daughter’s Status,

Or About Her Very Nasty Grudge Against Her Ex Brother-in-Law;

What I Find Truly Atrocious Is Her Stance On Environmental Issues,

A Position That Truly Fills Me With Disgust, And No Admiration At All.

 

 

 

What a sad disaster, this political team is

Mr. McCain advocates ‘more of the same’

And now, his Vice Presidential candidate

Is the champion of the ‘Kill The Wolf’ game

 

Governor Sarah Palin is extremely Anti-Wildlife

She promotes slaughter of wolves, from Alaska’s sky

Her plans for drilling and mining and wildlife massacre

Should make every nature loving American, want to cry

 

Governor Palin has delighted in posting a bounty, on wolves shot

She believes Polar Bears don’t merit being an Endangered Species

She refuses to protect endangered Beluga Whales and Grizzly Bears

Her stance on wildlife and our environment, is extremely plain to see

 

She's also an ardent advocate for the world’s largest open pit mine

Which could eventually kill all the salmon, in Alaska’s Bristol Bay

Yet one more anti-environmental politician, seeking national office

Truly something that our imperiled natural world doesn’t need today

 

And although once a conservationist, McCain no longer cares

Now Alaska, the last refuge of wildlife, may soon be decimated

If these two – John McCain and The Animal Slayer - get elected

Any nature lovers still remaining in America, should not be elated

 

Alaska, led by Sarah Palin, is the only state in our nation where trophy hunters can savagely gun down wolves from airplanes and helicopters, or chase wolves to exhaustion from the sky, and then shoot them down from the ground. And her plans are already underway to do the very same thing, to Alaska’s bears.

 

As recently as July, under Governor Palin’s direction, Alaskan wildlife agency personnel staked out a known wolf denning site - and, using helicopters - gunned down 14 adult wolves from the air. When they landed, they then found 14 helpless wolf pups in the nearby dens - just weeks old - and they very methodically shot every one of them in the head.

 

Governor Palin will continue to promote brutal and illegal aerial hunting policies and barbaric wildlife extermination practices in Alaska, and throughout these United States; and now, several other states already eagerly want to follow her hideous example.

 

 

Our current President,

Has already been labeled

‘The worst environmental leader,

This nation has ever had,’

By numerous conservation groups.

 

And if elected, this horrific new team,

Could even beat his truly abysmal record.

I live in the UK but whoever is elected president of the US affects us here in the UK so I watch these campaigns with interest.
Sarah Palin is one scary lady and let's pray fervently that McCain/Palin DO NOT get into the White House. None of the animals we have at present will be safe with this monster on the loose. Excellent Poem, Ed.

It is all so gruesomely horrible. My heart truly jumps out to the wolves of our nation. I don't want to but do believe that wolves will become extinct here next. When I was researching for a paper on the wolf slaughter I kept finding an article about how Barak Obama wants to end all the slaughtering. I dont really beleive what all political people say but the fact that he did say it gives me some hope.

She's Dick Cheney in a dress. The more information Americans get, the more they will realize the poor judgement of McCain's choice.

There was a story released this morning indicating she spoke to missionaries from her church and told them that the war in Iraq was a "Mission From GOD!" In that same speech, she said the natural gas pipeline she advocated was another effort inspired by GOD.

Sarah may be one of the Blues Brothers!

Then who is there to vote for, as the Obama/Biden team is not a hell of alot better, one has NO experience & the other has a load of problems of his own...geez, maybe Rufuz WOULD be the best choice...hope, other than this kind of stuff, you have a great time...be careful out there...Ed & Rufuz

I called her a "natural-born killer" right away last week when "McPain's Plan for more Pain was announced" - what gets me is how "they" who call themselves "religious conservatives," have made a religion out of killing GOD'S GOOD CREATURES - and in this case ALL in the Name of BIG-OIL of which fabric she is cut from... We now know where McCain stands on ALL those issues so vitally important to OUR FUTURE HEALTH in this world...
God does NOT condone this, but he has yet stopped anyone from abusing the powers they acquire.

Gives the term "big shot" a whole new meaning, doesn't it Ed? Been getting the same message from Wildlife organizations. and I don't like it one bit...and I took offense at her statement: "What's the difference between Soccer Mom's and a Pit Bull? One of them wears lipstick!" Couple young soccer moms/grandmothers I've talked with didn't appreciate the comparison, either.

Well given speech, but not the best entertainment message I've seen/heard.

I think we've got a few months of bad soap-opera plots ahead in this election campain...

Blessings and Love...and Lead Us Not Into Temptation...etc. - Micke
