Another Stupid PSA: Come to the Forest!

Public Service Announcements really chap my hide!  They are nothing more than the feral government using our tax dollars to propagandize us

I'm not just bellyaching. My solution is at the bottom of this post.

Aggressive texting is bad...  Ask questions to protect yourself from predatory lenders...  Don't post naked pictures of yourself on the internet...  Bla bla bla.  Are we really so stupid we need to be told these things by a government that can't even balance its checkbook?

Come to the Forest!
I really hate that Come to the Forest PSA!  In one version, some booger slug that sounds like a bad droopy dog imitation tells this kid to come back to the forest where he can hug bugs and visit his friends the rocks and the trees. 

As if that weren't gay enough, another version features bright cheery people luring you to the forest for who knows what nefarious purpose.  The fruity background music sounds like something Barney Frank listens to when he's trolling in his lollipop mobile.

Back in my day, they would have used a Davy Crockett or Daniel Boone theme.  Maybe cowboys, or WW II soldiers killing huns in the Ardennes.  Something heroic that hearkens back to our American frontier spirit.  But nowadays it's all tree hugging and Pocahontas PC circle of life crap.

It ain't a proper Forest Service commercial unless it upsets liberals!  How about some Sara Palin and Uncle Ted?

Hmmm What is the "other you" they wish for people to find?

Or is it due to Obamas economy that both State and Federal parks are down on finacing.

It makes you wonder who's in charge of deciding what public service needs a little promotion here and there. Safe Schools Czar Kevin Jennings maybe?

I live in the forest, and the mountains...and quite frankly until you learn:

1. The speed limit uphill is the same as downhill.

2. It's not acceptable to attempt to pass a 40 foot RV going 38 MPH while towing your 35 foot trailer at 41 MPH on a two lane road with a 60 MPH speed limit.

3. Your 1998 Toyota Tercel is not an all terrain vehicle.

4. Yes, there is wildlife here, it is not socially acceptable to come to a dead stop on the far side of a blind hill to look at it. You want to look at wildlife, go to the Zoo instead.

5. Moss sometimes grows on both sides of the tree.

6. Know where you are and where you are going, buy a map and compass or better yet GPS. If you get lost in the mall, don't bother going in the woods.

7. Yes, the Bears, Cougars, and Wolves are cute and furry... unless you are armed, you are prey...might as well get ALPO tattooed across your ass.

8. Wood burns, we have lots of wood... I will follow you to hell and back while calling the Sheriff and Park Rangers after you toss that Marlboro out your friggin window. (Google Hayman Fire if you still don't get it).


Sorry, just wanted to

I don't think I want to understand where this tree-hugging agenda began. Yes, I love trees they are beautiful, homes to various species of birds and of course, shade from the sun. But do I want to teach my kids to worship them or talk to them as if they had feelings? No...

Yes, we need to respect nature
and as Finntann so eloquently stated, "Yes, the Bears, Cougars, and Wolves are cute and furry... unless you are armed, you are prey...might as well get ALPO tattooed across your ass."

There is a difference in giving reverence to nature and respecting it. I choose to give God thanks for his creation and I will do my best to take care of it but I refuse to worship it.

Btw, loved the picture of Palin and Nugent, classic.

Have you ever watched "Axe Men"? We should send the tree huggers in to meet them! I am sure they would get a long great.

Yes, Parents, dress your sons in cute little shorts and send them off to the woods to skip and hop among the trees, and if they are lucky, they will meet the "Woodland Fairy" who will help the youngster to discover his "inner girl".

You did see the Green Police commercial during the Super Bowl, no? It's an institution, my friend. Despite the scandal.

I watched Winnie The Pooh with my little one Sunday night. I'm not very plugged into the "popular culture."
