Campaign video for the Yes, Bush Can '04 campaign.
Whereas God ordered Adam to use of the fruits of the Garden of Eden as he saw fit; whereas President Bush?s forest policies allow us to use America?s natural resources as we see fit, so long as they last; whereas forest fires have an important role in these policies, by opening valuable public lands to ?salvage logging?;
whereas ?Smokey the Bear? does therefore no longer adequately represent the complex po- litical realities of today, as trees have a good deal more utility and economic value than bears;
therefore we, the undersigned, hereby support replacing ?Smokey the Bear? with ?Smokey the Log? as the official mascot of the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service.
