Reasons 1 to 18 Not To Kill A Tree For The Holidays



As of  2019, according to a Google search, over 81% of those who have holiday trees have ones they can use year after year and not axed trees.


1. Massive tree cutting is the single biggest cause of global climate extremes, drought, fire. Each average sized tree evaporates 42 gallons of moisture daily becoming mist, then clouds, then rain. Every leaf, blade of grass, and pine needle are necessary.


2. Many parks and fields have been totally stripped of fir trees by those who have axed them so that they may slowly die in people's living rooms. The result is forests with no evergreens.


3. Raccoons, squirrels, birds, beehives and butterflies are smashed or evicted when the trees are axed.


4. Pine trees with dry needles coming into contact with hot electric lights are a cause of fire


5. Needle cleanup is a timewasting chore.


6. Trees can easily be toppled by crawling babies or playing children, endangering them. Dogs and cats are sometimes confused smelling the outdoor fragrance of dead trees sometimes urinate on or under them.


7. Trash pick up of dead trees is expensive and an energy waste for cashstrapped municipalities


8. Landfills are clogged by the tree carcasses. Their replacement landfills create even more deforestation.


9. In terms of very large trees, lumberjacks have one of the 5 most dangerous occupations in the world.


10. USA Today itself a deforester reported that of 95 million households with a tree, 81% of the homes have an artificial one.


11. Numerous studies by Chandra Bose, inventor in the 1890's of the radio which he demonstrated in 1895 as well as Luther Bank, researcher recorded in the book The Secret Life Of Plants etc. indicate trees have feelings and should not be killed.


12. Trees were not axed for Christmas until the 16th Century in Germany. Queen Victoria brought the tradition to England.


13. Small eggsacs of spiders or bugs can come into the home unobserved on the branches. In the warmer house temperatures they can hatch out.


14. Artificial trees save a lot of money, over a period of years over $1000


15. The trees take years or decades to grow. They are killed for a few days to 1 month display.

16. In 2020 a massive tree which grew for decades

in the forests axed for a shortlived amusement for

Rockefeller Center patrons was discovered to have a small

baby owl stowed away in its branches.


17  For many Christians, Christmas is a celebration of

the birth of Jesus who was a vegetarian Essene and wanted

no sentient being killed for his birthday.

18. Artificial trees save time.


Let the green Christmas trees
unmolested in the forest be.



Thank you to Jim Bohannon when on Mutual Radio for the eggsac story.

Jeff Bezos, Amazon, The Washington Post, Whole Foods, Etc

*Politics Articles


Washington Post reporters are to be commended for their tremendous investigative work in uncovering details of Donald Trump regime crimes.  Their work is a separate issue from the record of Jeff Bezos.

In March of 2019, Senator Elizabeth Warren suggested the breakup of Amazon, which many environmentalists consider a deforesting monopoly

run without regard to union member rights.


Update March 2019

Jeff Bezos kills animals through ownership of a cattle ranch, Whole Foods and Amazon sales of meat, fish, eggs, milk, fir trees, promotion of animal eating in Whole Foods and Alexa ads, ownership of a deforesting newspaper and Amazon trillions of cardboard boxes, warmongering etc.



Axios and MSNBC report that Jeff Bezos' fortune is not 150 but 160 billion dollars.
1. Workers struck in Germany Spain and elsewhere over terrible working conditions. in their countries and elsewhere.. The Seattle Times published a column on Amazon US workers' need for a union

Amazon workers often receive no bathroom breaks. In one Amazon location, so many workers
fainted from the heat, ambulances were kept waiting outside. Amazon workers are searched
when they leave. The long lines can involve an hour's wait for which the workers aren't paid.
Their wages are low.

Bezos is trying to remove some benefits of Washington Post

reporters, drivers, and press operators.

Jeff Bezos' unionbusting tactics


Bernie Sanders calls out Bezos on worker conditions.

Many employees of the richest man in the world are on food stamps.

The Real Price of Amazon's Free Shipping – Mother Jones

Bezos has raised the minimum wage but retaliated by cutting bonuses and stock benefits.

2. And yet. Jeff Bezos, owner of the Washington Post, Amazon, Whole Foods, a cattle ranch etc. is the richest man in the world with an accumulated wealth of 150 billion dollars.

3. There is racial bias in Amazon photo recognition software which identified black and Latino congresspersons as criminals. Is that the CIA facial recognition software?
4. Bezos maintains the CIA cloud for 600 million.

5. Bezos has promoted several illegal immoral US government wars.

6. Bezos and the Washington Post for decades have been a conduit for CIA disinformation.
7a. Amazon and the Washington Post are major deforesters, destroying trees for cardboard packaging and newsprint. Deforestation is the prime cause of global heating and rising seas. 140 degrees in parts of Africa, 106 degrees in Japan, Toronto residents hospitalized for

heat, fires in 13 states in 2018 are some effects of deforestation.

7b.  Amazon is selling axed 7 ft high Christmas trees starting this year.
8. As a cattle rancher, Bezos has profiteered from animal agony, mammal flesh related diseases, energy waste, and the deforestation caused by slaughterhouse murder bound mammals who pull up sapling trees in their grazing.
9. Whole Foods ads shill for mammal, bird and fish flesh.  Foods derived from animal slaughter cause animal agony, human disease, energy waste, and environmental destruction.
10a. The Nation magazine and others have reported that USPS postal workers must shoulder the burden of Amazon, which many charge does not pay its fair share at the USPS. Historically the USPS has allowed US citizens through first class mail to pay for the lower cost of bulk corporate mail.

Bezos is the chief beneficiary of the privatization of parts of the USPS, with postal workers the victims.

11. Like henhawk Joni Ernst, intalled by the Koch Brothers as a senator from Iowa,
who bragged she could castrate pigs in Iowa and politicians in DC, Jeff Bezos
did not object to castrating helpless mammals.

12.  With 290,000 acres at least, Jeff Bezos is among the top 25 landowners in the US. Another animal abuser is Ted Turner, 2nd in land holdings, who profiteers from the murder of bison.

13. Jeff Bezos' Amazon crushed an attempt by Seattle to tax Amazon a small amt to help homeless

14.  Amazon will stop selling foie gras in California because of a lawsuit

It appears that Bezos' Amazon will continue selling the brutally produced foie gras in other states

15. Bezos' Amazon paid no taxes


Bezos' Whole Foods has sued activists attempting to publicize the terrible conditions
of Whole Foods meat suppliers.

The following 2 paragraphs are quoted with the permission of


'Beginning in 2014, Hsiung and DxE have undertaken multiple undercover investigations of Whole Foods suppliers, exposing what they call criminal animal cruelty at farms that include Diestel Turkey Ranch, Pitman Family Farms (Mary’s Free Range Chicken) and Petaluma Farms. The investigations have led to thousands of complaints against Whole Foods on social media and protests across the country against both Whole Foods and its parent company, Amazon.

Earlier this year Hsiung was arrested and charged with “threatening bodily injury” after asking questions at a Colorado Whole Foods about the conditions at the company’s meat suppliers; a video of the incident posted on Facebook was viewed over 3.4 million times (and shared by the musician Moby). Hsiung says the new suit is an effort to prevent exposure of disturbing animal abuse at Whole Foods farms. '

Currently the CIA is continuing destabilization of oil rich Venezuela, Nicaragua, Afghanistan.

Historically, the Washington Post's Woodward and Bernstein helped Kissinger and Mark Felt, number 2 man at the FBI, in their plot to rid the White House of Nixon, not because he and Kissinger bombed Cambodia and killed millions, but because Nixon on a taped conversation was heard telling Billy Graham that when re-elected he would end Zionist control of the airwaves.  Felt worked with Kissinger while the #3 man at the FBI, William Sullivan, was loyal to Nixon. Sullivan was murdered in a NJ housing development by a NJ state trooper. The murder was called a hunting accident.

In 1965 the New York Times published a short article of the life of Ho Chi Minh. Many who read it understood for the first time the betrayal of Ho by Woodrow Wilson, and by Eisenhower's failure to honor FDR's promise to Ho that should he help rid Vietnam of the Japanese, the US would support his lifetime battle to rid Vietnam of its French colonizers. On the other hand, the Washington Post was a prowar newspaper while millions of Vietnamese, Cambodians, Laotians and 58,000 American soldiers died and many times that were injured.

Cattle rancher Jeff Bezos, allegedly world's richest man, owns Whole Foods whose tv ad implies vegans are unstable people who lapse into the Neanderthal paleo diet. The ad's 'whatever makes you whole' glorifies those who tear animals apart.

Zoo - Just to Amuse You!

One fine day, I planned a visit to zoo
Alone landed amidst the fauna left so few
Treaded merrily on greenery, singing my heart out
Whilst a lion’s scary roar made me shout

‘Ah! Another visitor’, said the lion annoyingly
‘Why should we entertain you?’ said he fumingly
‘What’s the point in wasting your energy and mine?
Making us do the funny acts, do they seem so divine?’

Hearing those words I dared
Reduced the distance, still scared
Said I, ‘Stop fuming King of Jungle, watch out for your age,
Hadn’t I come to visit you, wouldn’t you be bored in your cage?’

‘The answer dwells in your question, silly girl
You humans have no heart of pearls,
The so-called king of jungle imprisoned in cage
Heartthrob of millions I was, at my early age’

‘To meet my family, hope it doesn’t get too late
I need to eagerly meet ‘em all, my cubs, my mate
I still feel them, they are waiting for me
Oh girl! Be kind enough to set me free.’

I couldn’t have done that with all my might
Turned my way, delighted by a peacock’s sight
The multihued beauty was sheltered in a metallic cage
Awe! Gloomy this beauty looked, in distress and rage

‘What is wrong? Do you want to fly?’
It turned around and looked straight at the sky
‘Show me those vibrant feathers, the fan-like crest
Guests would adore seeing you dance at your best’

‘I dance just for my love, my love for rain,
Cool breeze no more likes crossing my lane
Why do I open my feathers without my mate’s presence?
Just to amuse you, I shall do; confined in this fence’

Dumbstruck, I decided to turn my way
Walked ahead in quest of animals happy and gay
There it was! A crazy monkey, flirting and making its choice
Mimicking others and playing around, hear its evil noise

Bouncing, bouncing and dancing, dancing
It ruled as if dungeon’s dominant king
Wow! You look so happy; what’s the reason?
‘Girl! No more fun for you, ‘coz free I’ll be from this prison’.

Two giant men came forward and opened the door
Good Lord! It’ll be free, unkind humans is just animal’s lore!
Monkey screeched, ‘Meet me soon in the nearby forest
Where I meet my pals, play, eat, have fun and rest’

Happy to see the monkey’s joy, I walked ahead
Across the bushes, saw a van, a huge van in red
Giant men carried animals and dumped in the van
Shocked I was to see the sight and reckoned their plan

Why was my monkey friend inside, for what purpose?
It was clear as I read the van’s name, ‘The Great Royal Circus!’
