Here we go Again

Jim Beers is at it again with "The purpose of invasive species," a commentary published online at the dubious URL of "" Among other incendiary things he mentions are "The Invasive Species advocates (politicians, bureaucrats, professors, and the radical groups partnering with them) really want to eliminate what makes this country great." He also suggests that those people all move to Afghanistan or Rwanda "where there are no Invasive Species." Since his argument against invasive species "advocates" is based on something as nitpicky as the cutoff date by which all species arriving in America become non-native, I will be just as nitpicky and point out that neither Rwanda nor Afghanistan are free from the problems caused by introduced species or the anthropogenic disturbance that can allow these species to thrive.
