    yeah, DN, I finally get it. HVH and other libs can call names all they want, but when I use their exact same words, you block them.

    Thanks again for the impartiality.

    HVH why did you immediately assume Chris was implying thepublic lands should be sold? Whay cannot the state run them? whether the state or feds could better run them is another argument, but you seemed to be prejudging Chris.

    and of course, the enviro (insert adjective the DN will block) NEVER accept energy extraction as counting for the value of these lands - they are only good to look at.

    I didn't take long for the for a name calling conservative to claim the federal government is the enemy instead of Us or We the people. A reasonable person understands we are co-owners of our PUBLIC lands. An unreasonable person thinks it should all be sold today, so that our children can pay to see what was once OURS.

    Chris B!

    Here I am, proud to be first: A co-owner of our PUBLIC lands, which should never be privatized for short-term gain for developers and their buddies.

    We know the conservative mindset: privatize the profits, socialize the clean-up.

    I wonder how long until a liberal comments and shows their inability(or unwillingness) to understand the issues and touts this as a success of the federal government.

    This only shows the "success" of the federal government relative to their "success" in other states.

    It doesn't address how things would be if it wasn't managed by the federal government.
