“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Nutty environmentalists want to control everything

I hope everybody had a merry Christmas and contributed greatly to their personal carbon footprints through excessive fire-place burning and the conspicuous consumption for which we Americans are infamous. That said, as unhappy as eco-kooks probably are with our waste, it seems they're upset at our music also....

AUSSIE rockers AC/DC could have to cancel a sold-out concert because their big sound poses a danger to rare birds.

Animal rights campaigners are threatening legal action if the veteran band goes ahead with a gig planned for Wels airport in Austria in May.

Hans Uhl of BirdLife said birds nesting in the area at the time would be threatened by anthems such as Highway To Hell and You Shook Me All Night Long.

"The second biggest colony of curlews in Upper Austria and various other ground-nesting birds must not become endangered," Mr Uhl said.

They're just a bunch of uptight busybodies who resent lots of people having a good time doing something, anything, that can't be considered "communing with nature". That's the problem with liberals, as long as you're engaging in activities approved by them it's OK but, don't dare exercise your freedom to enjoy life by listening to music of which they don't approve.

Rock on Brian and Angus, Rock on!

Did they give any clue as to how loud music would hurt birds any more than say - oh - a thunderstorm? And how is it actually endangering them? Will they go deaf and not hear mating calls? Will they explode? I really can't figure this one out.
