If the Legislative Branch were...

A person: I would picture her/him as an old and feeble-minded but pompous ass.
An employee: I would recommend her/him be retired or fired.
A potential employee: Her/His resume would not make it past keywords like "initiative" and "decision-making" so (s)he would not be interviewed.
My child: I would send her/him to her/his room for petulant behavior.
A farm animal or plant: I would cull it for being unproductive.
A similar post for the Administrative Branch is a WIP.

I'll second that. It kinda reminds me of what they do with the wild blueberry fields up here every year. As soon as they stop being productive each year, they burn the fields to purge them of all unproductive growth, so that new more productive growth can grow.

Love it; converting all non-productive organic life forms into carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses! Young growth is mostly water, not so much carbon compounds.

Millions of acres undergo prescribed burns every season. And they call it working against with nature.

Well there are "prescribed burns" and then there are just quick and easy ways to remove vegetation. The blueberry field burning does not appear to fit in the "prescribed burn" category.

Down here, the brush/bush hog is the vehicle of choice for vegetation removal in fields.

Georgia has prescribed burns. Not for the home gardener, but the commercial growers participate in prescribed burns.

We don't have much large production of berries, so I'm not sure how that would be handled... but the corn and soybean stubble left in the field over winter is considered "minimum till" and is good for the field, both with regard to erosion prevention and decomposition for soil nutrients. In spring, it's tilled under.

Back to the regularly scheduled program...
