    I hate having to cut down a tree (probably because I live in the desert), but when our large Russian Olive (60ish feet tall) failed to come to life this past spring, I had little issue cutting it down (and cutting it up for firewood for this coming winter). It's better to have to cut it down than to have it fall on the house. But man, those tree-huggers are just annoying. Want to make the world a better place? Than try doing something productive. I've too often found that the people that will chain themselves up to stop a bulldozer from entering a forest, are the same ones that will protest putting up a rehab clinic. Frikken NIMBYs.

    Now, the Siberian Elm that keeps coming up from under the foundation in the back; I've had to cut it down three times, and it just keeps coming back. I'm at the point of enjoying breaking out the chainsaw on that one.

    Fucking Druids. They wouldn't be crying for the trees if one blew over in a hurricane and crushed their car.

    If they were REAL environmentalist, they'd stop wasting their time "protesting" and go out and PLANT SOME FUCKING TREES! Fucking morons.

    I don't know if I'm the only one here who watches Penn and Teller's TV show on Showtime, but they've done a couple of must watch episodes on nuts like these. Recently, they did one on dolphins and people who think it's somehow a good idea to give birth while swimming with the dolphins. That one was classic.

    the only people more annoying than tree huggers are the wackos at PETA. Agitating to get the Fishkill river in NY state renamed to something less violent? Ok, Code Pink is officially the most annoying bunch of ugly women in the world.
