OMG: I Hooked Up with a Girl Who Works for Greenpeace
By Paul E McGinniss
Imagine the horror of a die hard conservative finding out he got to third base with a Greenpeace Obama loving liberal! Ha!
And if you're a die hard liberal you'd freak to find out the date you have the hots for is a Sarah Palin loving, clean coal cheerleading, National Rifle Association fanatic.
Luckily, two new dating sites RedStateDate.com and BlueStateDate.com can help you find love with people who share similar political and social values. Let them do the vetting for you so there's no need for that awkward date where you have to nervously ask your new flame what side of the aisle they sit on!
Through daily straw polls and a forum to discuss opinions regarding current events, previous campaign work or even a shared affinity or dislike of a particular politician, RedStateDate.com and BlueStateDate.com engage members and their potential matches to take sides on real-time developments in the political world as they unfold. The sites help those looking for politically correct love to have the most comprehensive views possible of where potential hookups stand on the important political issues of our time.
So relax. Dating has never been more politically safe. There's no more worrying if that person you woke up next to is hitting for the wrong team. Not all of us are like James Carville and Mary Matalin who obviously are genetically capable of long-term nooky with their political opposite.
Check out these hysterical videos from RedStateDate.com and BlueStateDate.com:

Aerial photos of the Sierra Nevada — the long mountain range stretching down the spine of California — showed rust-colored swathes following the state's record-breaking five-year drought that ended in 2016. The 100 million dead trees were one of the most visible examples of the ecological toll the drought had wrought.
Now, a few years later, we're starting to learn about how smaller, less noticeable species were affected.

Disinfectants and cleaners claiming to sanitize against the novel coronavirus have started to flood the market, raising concerns for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which threatened legal recourse against retailers selling unregistered products, according to The New York Times.
The global coronavirus pandemic has thrown our daily routine into disarray. Billions are housebound, social contact is off-limits and an invisible virus makes up look at the outside world with suspicion. No surprise, then, that sustainability and the climate movement aren't exactly a priority for many these days.
