I would remind Rob that there's a great difference between conservation 
and conservatism.  I have always been a conservationist, hence my 
support for responsible energy usage, hybrid vehicles, smart growth, 
smart farming techniques, and etc.  Who, apart from Rob, would identify 
our wasteful, thoughtless, mass-produced, disposable modern-day 
political conservatism with conservation?  No fiscal responsibility; no 
care for the environment; no thought for tomorrow; no common sense.  
You seem to have confused your political and social movements, Rob.  
Our greatest conservationist President was also a part of the 
Progressive Movement: Teddy Roosevelt.

I'm a progressive in favor of a conservationist revolution.  Dude.
