How many jobs has Rob "bring home the bacon" Bishop created in Utah since the last election? Better yet, has anyone totaled up the amount of money his "earmarks" has helped our state in creating jobs? Time for a change next election?

Without the Antiquities Act, there'd be gold mines in the Grand Canyon, Mesa Verde would have been completely looted, and Utah would be just as rich as Kentucky and West Virginia with the coal mines, complete with the slag dumps, the tailings dam failures, and rampant pollution. No thanks.

Rob Bishop is almost always right on issues. He is definitely right on this one.

Keep fighting, Rob!

what do the topics you mentioned have to do with the abuse of the antiquities act?

CHS 85,
there is a legislative process that can address your concerns. Why do we elect a president, but allow him to be an unreversable dictator when it comes to national monument designation?

Another article that is essentially written by the press person of Bishop. Not one word of the other side of the issue or the benefits that we have received. This isn't journalism, it's a glorified Congressional newsletter.

How do you expect Presidents to garner millions from enviro-groups if they are not allowed to willy-nilly declare Monuments they have never seen in States they don't care about?
