    When did the USDA become the department of FEMA? Why is the USDA, a consumer protection agency, being tasked with the duties of disaster aid that FEMA is responsible for?

    Has FEMA become bankrupt and out of funding? I know this country id near bankruptcy and maybe this is a sign of things looming over the economy of this country. National emergency departments are unable to perform any emergency help for states and citizens.

    Heck, it's all a plot by the feds to make our political leaders look like hypocrites. For, they'll take the money (of course) - all the while trashing the feds.

    "they'll take the money"

    You make it sound like it's the Fed's money. Where do you think they got it? The Federal Government can't give anything they don't take from us first.

    To Rifleman: Utah gets more from the Fed then they contribute, sooooo, please explain that?
    Sounds like Utah is willing to take more than it gives, this is the hypocrisy to which Bill addressed and continually eludes you.

    Can't Utah support itself and it's needs without some kind of "entitlement money"?

    The Federal Government ties up a large portion of Utah's resources in Public Lands that we would otherwise generate revenue from. Simple math. We deserve far more than we receive from the Feds to compensate.

    Fair is fair ..... even if you're a liberal.

    So instead of answering my questions you use the ol' switcheroo, (or Faux answer) and they are NOT Utah's public lands they are America's Public lands.

    So back to the "Actual Article" of how Utah is Holding out it's hand, while condemning the feds for handing the funds out. Hypocrisy by definition.

    "they are NOT Utah's public lands they are America's Public lands"

    "In the United States governmental entities including cities, counties, states, and the federal government all manage land which are referred to as either PUBLIC LANDS or the public domain." - Wikipedia "Public Land"

    So again, The Federal Government ties up a large portion of Utah's resources in Public Lands that we would otherwise generate revenue from. Simple math. We deserve far more than we receive from the Feds to compensate.

    It just kills the liberals when they are faced with the truth.

    Giving me a definition which agrees with what I said, didn't change my mind.
    And simply repeating your post doesn't make it any closer to the truth or pertinent to the article.

    It is good to here you say the gubermant "owes you" like the folks you belittle here daily though.

    Your posts never "kill" me, not sure where you get that from. (probably your radio) I often use many posts on these comments to demonstrate fallacies in logic to co-workers and relatives, and you frequent me with opportunities to do such, so no anger here.

    @ Rifleman

    You give Happy Valley Heretic a perfectly logical and sound explanation of the revenues the Federal Government has locked up in Utah and then politely point out his confusion on Public Lands. When a liberal can't disagree with the facts the only option available to him is to go after the commentator.
