Ya Gotta Love Them Tree Huggers

A woman from Los Angeles who was a tree hugger, a liberal Democrat, and an anti-hunter, purchased a piece of timberland near Colville, WA .
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. 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 ER 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 Obamacare, they turned me down.”~Steve~      H/T    Richard

  1. Too funny–sending to to our office now. They could use a smile with all this crap BO’s is sending our medical profession.

     
  2. That’s hilarious!
    And too real… My dad lives in Colville on 25 acres & has trees cut down each year for profit. Every time he complains about stoopid permits required to cut down his own trees…

     
  3. My son’s girlfriend is always bemoaning evil loggers for the clear cuts on Weyerhaeuser forestry planations along the highway. My son, who used to work in a sawmill, says he keeps trying to explain that they’re a crop, a renewable resource, harvested every 50-75 years. If she walked through the area she’d see that it’s been replanted, creating habitat for all the little woodland creatures and a very important “break” to prevent forest fires from spreading.
