Mc Donald cut down the forests of Bresil to grow grass for their
cattle, do they come back ?

That's the answer. Cut down a 1000 year old redwood so some jackass can have
a redwood deck. Sure trees grow back if they are replanted. The old ones
won't if jackasses keep cutting them down.

Personally I think all of the beer sucking, pot bellied human trash can do
without a redwood deck.

Lots of folks are figuring out that synthetic decks look nice and don't
warp, discolor, or rot. We're going to put one in, and I can tell you I
won't miss treating it (don't have to), repairing it, and etc.

So, is Nikon really a subsidiary of Mitsubishi, as many believe, or do

they
have one of those wierd, semi-legal (even by Japanese standards) corporate
inter-relationships? This is really an important issue with regard to the
survival of Nikon as it has been historically constituted.

Obviously that's an objective view. I notice that they ask for
readers to send them reports of negative experiences with the Nikon
D70 -- but, apparently, only negative reports are needed. So if a
million people like the camera and one person hates it, they're just
interested in the one.

Oh, and I love the bit about the guy from Newsday who claims that a
Sony is superior in lens quality. But with the Nikon, the lens comes
off, so the lens can be better or worse, depending on which one
somebody has on the camera. Duh.

"i feel that no company should trade timber"

Yea and like how would we build houses and furniture? LOL


Well, the house bit is easy, build them properly out of brick..


And the cupboards and table and chairs out of brick?

This is just another radical left wing initiative intended to cripple
commerce and radically restrict life styles. (Naturally, their rich bozo
contributors can have all the wood they want, they'll be the only ones who
can afford it!) The Spotted Owl? Doing fine, one pair was even found nesting
in a sign in a parking lot in Washington. A distortion of the ESA, used as a
canard by the wacked out left to destroy the logging industry.



That isn't close to being true. First, aluminum, iron, and
concrete can easily take the place of almost anything in
house construction. Almost no wood is used in modern
commercial buildings. And many houses are going to steel
studs and other non-wood parts.

As for trees being not exhaustible, you may want to look at
those parts of the world that supported larger populations
for a long time and note the lack of forests. Vast areas of
the earth were denuded of trees hundreds and 10s of hundreds
of years ago and continue to be treeless.

You noticed that too, huh? When I read that, I practically sucked cola
up my nose.

On second thought, what kind of drugs are you on? I don't expect you to
share so how much for a half ounce?

We're quite confident you'd be just fine if a bunch of brie-eating,
cabernet-sipping, limp-wristed, Volvo- driving leftists wanted redwood decks
in Marin county. The leftist hypocrites would justify it by claiming it was
a neighborhood preservation project, etc. that employed the "disadvantaged".
("Disadvantaged" would not, of course, include any of the families in the
Northwest that lost their jobs while the Eco-terrorists destroyed the
loggonmg industry.)

As it is, we are forced to import lumber so the tree-huggers can feel all
warm & fuzzy inside, raising the prices of everything and furtther messing
up the trade balance.

Screw the enviro-commies, cut those big friggin' trees down, log the Hell
out of the forests and thousands will be put back to work. The forests will
do just fine, as will the wildlife. Oh, and a message to the enviro-Nazis:
shut the **** up!
