(which rhymes with crudites, just because it gives me something to laugh at through my tears) US News and World Report quotes Terry Anderson of the Political Economy Research Center (whatever the hell that is) as saying the following about my * favorite * Bush cabinet nominee, Gale Norton: “Gale is an environmentalist. She cares about the resources that will be under her watch.”
Extremely TELLING use of language, don’t you think?
** Resources **
- Something that can be used for support or help: The local library is a valuable resource.
- Often resources. An available supply that can be drawn on when needed.
- a. resources. The total means available for ** economic ** and ** political ** development, such as mineral wealth, labor force, and armaments.
b. resources. The total means available to a company for increasing ** production or profit ** , including plant, labor, and raw material; assets.
c. Such means considered individually.
- Advocacy for or work toward protecting the** natural environment ** from destruction or pollution.
** Oldscratch ** you’re right…I admitted in the OP that I was way behind in my awareness of this. But I can’t be the only one. And I still get to bitch about it. Bitch bitch bitch.
