    We have a conservative trying for his brownie points attacking Obama in a story about Zion National Park. This is amazing. We see the power of Fox News and talk radio enticed hatred even here.

    Give me Europe where people value being educated and can talk intelligently. Presidents don't have the power or authority to give American land away. Do they teach civics in Utah? I would think these outcries are getting to be embarrassing to Utahns other than me.

    BTW my ancestor was the first to enter Zion Canyon.

    It's strange how Obama is giving things to the UN! One fact about the US, is that the IRS isn't even a government entity, it's an IMF entity!!!

    Our national parks are wonderful, and we should be good stewards of them. However, if they have great reserves of oil and such, we should find a way to tap these things without disturbing the natural beauty around the park. An Oil Well here or there won't kill the integrity of the park, so environmentalists, GET A LIFE!!! I love this country, but I don't love many peoples views, however I would die to fight for their right to express them! Don't let the Fed's remove "Miranda Rights" for ANYONE who is a U.S. citizen! If one person is denied those rights, one day it might be you! Consider this, if you are a card carrying member of the NRA, could you be "Classified" as a Domestic Terrorist by a government like we have now? See what I mean. Keep our Parks beautiful, and our people FREE!

    Our National Parks are wonderful! My only concern is how many of them are under UN control? You read right? And how much money is the UN contributing to our National Park upkeep,care etc.? Whhe and why did our National Parks come under the United Nations control?? I believe there are at least 9 parks under such control!

    Incredible park! Forget Europe or Bali. This country has enough places with far better views.
