  • Millions and millions of these world-treasure trees have been taken. NO deal on taking even a few more for convenience or whatever bulls…t story caltrans has made up. I have walked among them just recently, and they are miracles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I went through a few times today and none of the protesters tried to slow anyone down… They were just holding up their signs…
    However a tourist did slow way down in the grove to take a picture!

  • Are you kidding me? Protesting today? On Memorial Day?

    Can’t pick another day to make a political statement? Disgusting.

    Anything for attention when you have nothing better to do. The protestors are dissing our war dead on a day to honor them.

    They died so asshats like the protestors could play they political games!

  • 1. They arent making a political statement. They are trying to save the trees.

    2. They have many better things to do, and get NO direct benefit from the protest, as opposed to caltrans and the widening supporters who are money/profit driven, in most cases.

    3. Its not a game. You dont get how serious many of us are about the destruction of nature, so you dont give the cause the credibility it deserves.

  • Memorial Day is NOT for fallen warriors.
    It is to honor our ancestors.
    And what better ancestors to honor than Redwood trees which have been living since before Christ was born!

  • I don’t know what planet you live on SamHC2, but on this one we designate a day to honor those who have fallen in battle serving our country.

    So..Memorial Day IS for fallen warriors.

    You can worship the trees all you want, but don’t try to bend reality about what this holiday is about.

    Your world view is too narrowly focused and out of touch with reality for the most part or I wouldn’t have to tell you the obvious.

    All I ask for is some respect for the dead. Please don’t diss me any further about this protest NOT being a political ploy on a day to honor fallen warriors.

  • suzy blah blah

    They died so a few greedy corporations can continue to dominate and destroy the earth.

  • The height of impudent arrogance and self-righteousness once again reveals itself and on this particular blog too. First he attacks the demonstrator’s for “dissing the war dead” on the sacred Memorial day to worship our “warrior” ancestors. While at the same time disparaging and demeaning their sacrifices by his filthy accusations: “They died so asshats like the protestors could play they political games!” All “HE” wants is some “respect for the dead.” Isn’t that nice? This statement is the greatest DISRESPECT anyone could show: “All I ask for is some respect for the dead. Please don’t diss me any further about this protest NOT being a political ploy on a day to honor fallen warriors.” What these kinds of sloven morons never understand is that what these people, “political ploy” or not, are doing IS showing the GREATEST RESPECT anyone in this country can – exercising their hard earned RIGHTS paid for by the blood of these fallen people.
