The 1964 Wilderness act describes wilderness as an area...
- "Where the earth and its community of life are untrammeled by man..."
- "Which generally appears to have been affected primarily by the forces of nature, with the imprint of man's work substantially unnoticeable..."
- "Where man himself is a visitor who does not remain..."
- "Which has an outstanding opportunity for solitude or a primitive and unconfined type of recreation..."
can't get it to embed nicely for some reason. oh well.
i'd like to remind you that bill nye studied under carl sagan at cornell university.

Students who take education classes at universities receive significantly higher grades than students who take classes in every other academic discipline. The higher grades cannot be explained by observable differences in student quality between education majors and other students, nor can they be explained by the fact that education classes are typically smaller than classes in other academic departments.
This is despite the fact that education majors have the lowest high school grades and standardized test scores of all college students.

After he graduated he joined the Air Force and then returned home to farm cotton.
maybe its just me, but i want my president to be smarter than i am.
i want my president to make all A's in world history, US history, economics and political science.
i don't want to second guess how much he or she knows.
this is terrifying.
maybe you used to be a descent, small town, democrat but you do not deserve to be a big time politician.
opponent to gay marriage, believes in intelligent design and not evolution and believes creationism should be taught in schools along side evolution, pro-lifer and believes girls under the age of 18 must obtain parent permission to get an abortion, he does not believe in global warming and opposes the regulation of greenhouse gases, supports the death penalty
oh also, In his first book, On My Honor, published in 2008, Perry compared homosexuality to alcoholism.
there are a few things i do agree with like banning abortion in the 3rd trimester and some of your financial and tax related decision laws have worked fine, way to create more jobs in Texas but I'm still not convinced that is a result of you- but thats as much as i am willing to give you.
please don't become my next president.
i swear- going to Canada or some place for my phd work is looking better and better.
