New York Times: Lawns Are Symbols
of Racism and Bad for Global Warming

Original Article

While most Americans are spending time this summer enjoying the sun in the comfort of their houses’ yards, the New York Times is out with a new exposé on how lawn care is problematic, once viewed through the lens of social justice.Lawns are contributing to pollution and climate change, asserts narrator David Botti, and their origins are far from woke, in a seven-minute video on the history of American lawns.Botti says lawns are part of the “colonizing of America,” which transformed the landscape from “pristine wilderness” to “identical rows of manicured nature.”“These lawns come on the backs of slaves,” he continues, zooming in on

Tell you what, NYTimes - You stop killing trees to make paper for your rag, then tear down your wasteful Manhattan huge building and turn it into forest, and stop telling us what to do - and then I'll turn my lawn into wilderness. In the meantime, get off my lawn!

My beautiful lawn looks a whole lot better than the streets of NY City, Baltimore, San Francisco, Los Angeles... Mr Botti should worry about the city effect on the environment and let us lawn owners keep the oxygen producing vegetation healthy!

When I was a little guy, lawns were meadows comprised of whatever grew, the grass cutters were four-legged, except for close up to the house where we used a push mower and we little guys were its motor. Vistas were achieved with flowers and shrubs. Rich folks sculpted with boxwood. Not so rich folks used privet hedge. All that lush green stuff reduced the so-called carbon footprint to about zilch. Actually, my preferences haven't changed all that much and I'm not going to worry about it one bit.

It appears that I am actually quite white because my lawn is well tended (I'm too old to do it myself any more). I live in a racially diverse neighborhood, but mine doesn't yet come up to the high standards others near me have for their lighted, decorated and sculpted lawns. Does that mean that the people of African and Asian descent near me are also white? I don't want to be the one to tell them.

So racist lawns contribute to climate change? How? By releasing carbon dioxide? These people are truly lacking in common sense. A person has to be really angry or demented to start picking on people‘s lawns as racist. Why so angry? Are their lives that meaningless? Does anybody else think this is truly pathological?

We do have a lawn service, but the guys are as White as we are! Not sure where this writer gets her information that the lawns come on the backs of slaves. We RARELY see a Black person working for these Lawn services!

The Left is flat out of ideas. All they have left is identity politics, especially racism. When all you've got is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Of course lawns are racist. So are white paper, snow, clouds, cotton (ESPECIALLY cotton), popcorn, chickens, Wonder Bread, and vanilla ice cream. When a Leftist gets tired of using "racist" they up the ante to "white supremacist". Don't ask me why, but they think it sounds more ominous.

A pilotless space plane operated by the US Air Force has completed a record 717 days in orbit – and, we still have no idea what its mission is. The X-37B craft clocked 717 days, 20 hours and 42 minutes this morning at 6:43 a.m. EDT (1043 GMT), according to Space.com, bringing it past the spaceflight duration record set previously during the Orbital Test Vehicle 4 mission. While it isn’t the longest flight ever, the feat marks a personal best for this line of craft, with each pushing a bit further than the mission before. Scroll down for video

Obama's A.G., Eric Holder, challenged Americans to have an "honest" discussion about race. Obama and Holder are progressives who believe that America is unarguably racist. What Holder really wanted was a one-sided conversation to declare white Americans inherently racist. Holder wanted to further instill a victim mindset in blacks and use reparations to seduce blacks to continue voting for Democrats. In response to Holder's challenge, I am launching an honest discussion about race. Due to their war of words on YouTube, I became aware of an ongoing feud between black comedian Mo'Nique and black entertainment power brokers Oprah, Tyler Perry, and Steve Harvey.

In October 1935, roughly six weeks after a devastating hurricane laid waste to the Florida Keys, a group of frustrated chamber of commerce executives from the storm-battered Florida cities of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Hollywood got together to figure out what could be done about storms that mercilessly pounded the state's coast every fall, threatening the burgeoning tourist economy.The solution they landed on was a novel one, and, conveniently, it didn't require anyone to move out of harm's way. Instead, the executives suggested, the government should simply try bombing hurricanes before they got to Florida.

The company landed itself in hot water last year when it ran a #MeToo-themed ad borrowing language from far-left anti-male feminists, depicting the abuse of women by men and encouraging male Gilette customers to “shave their toxic masculinity.” Other attempts to demonstrate the company’s “woke” credentials included an ad showing a dad teaching his transitioning female-to-male child how to shave.

The Democrats are clearly losing confidence that their declared presidential candidates can beat President Trump in 2020. They tout polls showing that any of their top four candidates would win the general election were it held now, but only the most naïve take such hypothetical matchups seriously. Moreover, they can see that their leading candidate is so fuddled that he frequently forgets his talking points and even where he is on a given day, while his competitors are so far left of the mainstream that Trump would trounce them. This is why so many on the left have turned their desperate eyes to Michelle Obama.

We’re coming to you live from the Electoral College,” she said as her video panned to empty plainlands.
