    The tree hugger and the tree

    The tree hugger and the tree
    A woman from Los Angeles who was a tree hugger, a liberal Democrat, and an anti-hunter, purchased a piece of timberland in Washington.
    There was a large tree on one of the highest points in the tract. She wanted a good view of the natural splendor of her land so she started to climb the big tree.
    She wanted a good view of the natural splendor of her land so she started to climb the big tree.
    As she neared the top she encountered a spotted owl that attacked her. In her haste to escape, the woman slid down the tree to the ground and got many splinters in her crotch.
    In considerable pain, she hurried to a local emergency room to see a doctor. She told him she was an environmentalist, a Democrat, and an anti-hunter and how she came to get all the splinters. The doctor listened to her story with great patience and then told her to go wait in the examining room and he would see if he could help her.
    She sat and waited three hours before the doctor reappeared. The angry woman demanded, “What took you so long?”
    He smiled and then told her, “Well, I had to get permits from the Environmental Protection Agency, the Forest Service, and the Bureau of Land Management before I could remove old-growth timber from a “recreational area” so close to a waste treatment facility. I’m sorry, but due to Obama Care they turned you down.”

    If I was a Scientologist, Hari Krishna or a Muslim would it be alright if I spouted my beliefs throughout this web-site. No? So tell me why it is necessary for me to read Christian religious words of wisdom on that same web-site. Stop please, this is a trade/science site not someone's personal pulpit. The moderators of this site know better so why is this done?
    If responding in general try understand the purpose for the site being here.

    The purpose of this particular forum is jokes, quotations, humor, and wisdom pills. And we got all of them in one post!

    Your comments, however, seem to be misplaced, and maybe the mods can move it to ARP?

    Also, I'm sure cehs paid just as much in membership dues to this site as you and i did. There is a lot of free content on the internet that I would rather not read, too. So I don't. Shoot, he even highlighted the Christian parts in red so you could look away before the damage was done!

    The message of the cross of Jesus Christ is foolishness to those who refuse to believe...

    You have the right to put anything the moderators will tolerate in your own signature line and I have the right to not look at it or read it. Just don't get offensive.

    Interesting to see who reads the joke, and understands it, and who reads the tag lines, and doesn't understand.

    Again with the double standard. This site because of its moderator's pushy religious stance will eventually scare or bore the science and physics types away. Do this and this site becomes irrelevant. Spare me the Jesus comments, this isn't the place, that's what a house of worship is for. I've been an A/C journeyman and an engineer for 30 years and I'm a trade purist. There's a time and place for all things and this shouldn't be anyone's pulpit.

    stay out of the joke forum if it offends your purist ego.

    I've re-read the OP several times but the first mention of Christ was by the one complaining. It would appear he has an axe to grind and came here looking to insinuate his views into a joke thread. Now who's wrong?

    Interesting handle you have there deerwhistle-- is your reference to something known to be a ripoff and a scam an oversight or a Freudian slip? Just showing you how reading about somebody's profile, name or signature should have no bearing upon the content of their post so how about take a chill pill?
    Thx














    and may God bless you!
