    Obama opens up land for drilling and still the usual paranoid and angry pundits call him names.

    Yes the evil Sierra Club, wants to preserve the land and the saintly benevolent oil barron's want to sell our reserves to foreigners to increase there bottom line, while receiving corporate welfare. Yep, I see your point iron and clay, to bad ya can't see the forrest through the trees.

    I thought everything the Obama Administration did was supposed to be bad and evil?

    This doesn't sound like the terrible Obama-monster they keep telling me is running this country off the cliff.

    So, Ken, where were you 3.5 years ago? Oh yeah, I remember now -- cancelling Utah drilling leases.

    This is nothing more than a desperate campaign stunt.

    Good thing elections don't come closer together. Democrats would be in a constant state of desperation, continually invading us to pull this kind of cynical, meaningless, taxpayer-funded, vote-buying operation.

    Gee, thanks Fed for giving us permission to use our Utah land. It's nice to live in a country with benevolent dictators.

    Norman Dodd, a director for the research committee of the United States Congress (Reese committe) investigating foundations, was told in an interview with the president of the Ford Foundation, H. Rowan Gaither,THAT THE FORD FOUNDATION WAS OPERATING UNER DIRECTIVES FROM THE WHITE HOUSE to use grants to make efforts to alter life in the U.S. to make it possible to merge the US with an international socialist collective.
    This last investigation by congress into the elite foundations allowed the above light and knowledge. Let's have congress take the next step about how the US is now in bondage to the international banks and the big corporations that they own using foundations like Ford, Rockefeller, and Carnegie to influence national policy by funding Steve Bloch, the Sierra Club etc. to seize control of our natural resouces.

    Hatch is headed in the right direction on this one. Aren't election years wonderful?

    Hatch and the rest of our representatives need to look into the TAX EXEMPT FOUNDATIONS that support the Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance, the Sierra Club and the Natural Resouces Defence Council to expose their agenda that promotes dependency on foreign energy production and dictates by agencies in taking away the constituional rights of the American people and the states to develop their own resouces.
