Celebrate the place that we all call home on April 22nd for Earth Day. Help make the Earth a better place by participating in a clean-up, interact with endangered species, or get educated on how to help our Earth. It’s more important than ever to become educated on the challenges our Earth faces, with the unprecedented environmental changes we are all currently facing.

Please, how about just have some respect for where you live. I travel extensively in the USA and by far and away California is the trashiest, filthiest, dirtiest state in the union.

The people here treat the state like a giant trash can. And it's not just illegals and malcontents. I've seen every race and gender toss their crap out on the roadways with absolute disregard. It is such a liberal utopia.

So for them to lecture.... pffft.

They probably mean the whole global warming thing with talk of unprecedented environmental changes.

But, it would be wrong for them to call it unprecedented. Earth has experienced many ice ages in history. We’ve been in a period of global warming ever since the end of the last ice age.

Heck, Chicago was buried under a mile of ice during the ice age. I would say that there are some benefits to global warming.

Earth Day was created by Marxists. I believe it is also V.I. Lenin’s Birthday. Yet, the biggest polluter of the earth is China.

If liberals are so worried about the earth then they should put every person on welfare to work by making them clean up the mess they ceate. Two birds with one stone, they work, they pay taxes. Until they do this they can shut the heck up.

I won’t hold my breath!

The Commies could not give a Trayvon about the environment.

The Green Movement is just a decades-long, wholly transparent obfuscation to throttle freedom and free markets. In juxtapostion, capitalism ALWAYS embarrasses the crap out of thieving collectivism.

Indeed.

My BGF was in Romania when Ceausescu was deposed.

The country was littered with filthy, polluting factories that blighted the environment so much that there was a totally grey city (where cement was produced), a totally red city (where bauxite was produced) etc.

And then of course there were the hundreds of orphanages, where they disposed of their children.

Communism is satanic.

In Czechoslovakia (1989) I saw brilliant colored smoke plumes
spilling from factory stacks and beautiful old marble
statuary from Baroque times so eaten away by acid rain
as to be barely recognizable. The rain stings on the face
due to the acid content. I also saw where hazardous chems
and oil were just dumped by the roadside. This in Bohemia,
a lush and beautiful province. In North Moravia mining has
turned the landscape into a moonscape.

Thanks to Communism, no one owned any mess.

Be sure to enjoy your backyard Earth Day BBQ. To help celebrate, here are two recipes, one for Big Kahuna burgers, and the other for the Burger Chef Big Shef and Sauce.

Big Kahuna Burgers

2lbs hamburger
4 tbs Teriyaki marinade (La Choy is good)
6 pineapple slices
6 slices of provolone
1 pkg large buns

Optional:
lettuce, purple onion, tomato,
sliced jalapeno, peperoncini or
banana pepper.

Big Kahuna Secret Sauce

equal parts ketchup and brown sugar
1 tbs Dijon mustard

Simmer all ingredients untill sugar is
melted and fully blended.

Marinate hamburger for at least 20min.
It sounds very sweet, but it is pretty balanced.

BBQ grill both burgers and pineapple slices
then melt cheese over burger before serving.

*********
Burger Chef Big Shef and Sauce

(Big Chef at one point was the second largest hamburger
chain after McDonalds, but they were purchased by General
Mills, that soon figured out they didn’t want to be in the
hamburger business, then sold to Hardees, which wanted the
restaurants, not the brand.)

Ingredients:
2 tbsp Dill relish (not sweet relish)
1 tbsp Dehydrated onions
3/4 cup Salad dressing (Miracle Whip will do)
Louisiana Hot Sauce

Add the dehydrated onions to the dill relish. Let it
sit for a couple of hours for the onions to soak up the
juice from the relish. Then add that mix to the salad
dressing. Add a few drops of hot sauce to bring out the flavor, but not too much.

Insides of bun sections should be lightly sprayed with
coconut oil and toasted. Meat patties should be grilled.

Big Shef assembly (in order) - Bun heel, small slice of
American cheese,salted & peppered small meat patty,
bun center, second meat patty. Big Shef sauce, shredded
lettuce, Bun top.

There is, to this day, an empty, run down Big Chef in my home town. It was a Domino’s pizza for awhile but never lost it’s look as a Big Chef. BC fries rivaled MacD’s.

I help keep the planet clean by not throwing my crap around in the first place, unlike the Occupy environmental hippies!

I plan to celebrate Earth day by paying a visit with its founder,one Ira Einhorn.Google him if you've never heard of him,he's one fascinating guy.I'll have to remember to bring proper ID because the visit will take place in his home...the Pennsylvania State Prison (nothing serious...just the murder of his girlfriend).
