    "Win/win -- sell off excess [meaning almost ALL] federal lands.

    Treasury wins. Economy wins. Immigration activists win."

    I can't wait to see what Disney does with Yellowstone...... and well only have to pay $87 a person to come in and $10 for a hamburger on to visit land that used to belong to the people.

    And the casinos that will go up lining Grand Canyon.... will be awesome.

    Want to go to the beach..... beach access will be what - $20 dollars a head. I am loving this idea....not.

    Re: ". . . as the entitlement state buckles beneath the weight of an aging population, America's workforce needs replenishing."

    So does America's treasury.

    And the Department of Interior hoards WAY more Western lands than is good for a government to hold, and even some valuable back East and Left Coast lands,as well.

    Win/win -- sell off excess [meaning almost ALL] federal lands.

    Treasury wins. Economy wins. Immigration activists win.

    In short -- America wins.

    Do my eyes deceive me? Did George Will actually promote immigration?

    Right On George! Immigration is the SOLUTION. NOT THE PROBLEM!

    Finally someone from the right is thinking with his brain instead of his prejudices!!!!

    Great History Piece also!
