I don't know why I bother!
« on: April 30, 2019, 07:05:49 am »
I'm beginning to get a bruise on my forehead from banging my head against a brick wall.

You can spend hours dispelling the lies spread around that are sucked up by so many people. (I guess that's why I want to call them 'suckers') They just don't get it.  Actually, they don't want to get it.

Well!  It doesn't really make any difference because the trees are coming down sooner than later, the NYPA will spend millions of dollars rebuilding The Erie Canal to make it safe for their mostly ungrateful neighbors.

I've decided that I am going to sit back in my armchair, swivel it round occasionally to look at my beautiful view of the Oxbow Lake (and the huge embankment dam) opposite my house, and wait for the noise of chainsaws!

Yes, those nasty ugly looking Cottonwoods are on the way out! I will be able to see some fantastic sunsets over the dam, and will have a spectacular view for miles.

It's going to be a great show and I've got the popcorn ready.  I think fireworks would be in order too!

AND I'm going to livestream it from my webcam for all to see.

Have been asking myself that same question sir...

Seems rather senseless to keep expecting people, who have limited understanding of the real issues, to abandon the "fake" ones they have created to justify their position that "Trees on Dams are Good".

And I wanted to post the link to the Oxbow Dam Webcam.

Many will see that the clearing of the Oxbow Dam live, and it will be a transformation that will shake up a few living below this rather large Embankment Dam once they start to uncover them. Nothing better to wake people up to their OWN safety than seeing a Dams appear where they said there were none.

Plenty more before & after pictures of Embankment Dams to come E.C.,

And views from the Oxbow Lake live cam should be astounding as the horizon line changes with this dam clearing next Fall
