Damn right - we want "our" lands back. Greenpeace and the rest of the envirowackos need to be detained and "rehabilitated".

True, but since it is collatoral on the National Debt, I don't see it happening any time soon.

To quote myself again:
When the disaster comes, whether it is a firestorm with the attendant death and destruction, massive landslides, rapid infestation of exotic species, fatal contagious epidemics, whatever it is, take “custody” of The Environment. Demand a gradual divestiture and privatization of all non-military public resource land and withdrawal of government authority for specification of conformance. Hold activist organizations and their supporting foundations, criminally and financially accountable for the needless loss of life and destruction of habitat; for knowingly promulgating false and misleading information with negligent culpability in pursuit of financial and political gain. Sue for the privatization of wilderness land to manage it under contract because you know better what you are doing than they do.

Who should manage the asset? One would think that the creditors would want someone who can do it better for less. Of course, I would argue that the debt exists because of fraudulent tax-exempt activities on the part of those who hold that debt...

Privatize.

When California became an independant nation, which only lastedf a few days before it joined the United States all the land in the state was privately owned. I have never been able to figure out how the federal government or the state for that matter ever got title to any of it.

A society in which government owns the sources of production, and controls the use of private land is not a free society.

I'm so pissed off here at the Missionary Ridge Fire, I can't hardly type....I've seen and helped people/friends vacate from this inferno...I gotta tell ya'll...keep yer powder dry, and if you have the misfortune to runoverinto one of these green holier than thou pieces of sh*t arseholes....well, keep yer powder dry.

Greens facilitated by government and now politicians and bureaucrats are stepping in to set things right but fewer and fewer people are "buying" it. I mean, how could such a big all-powerful government be truly abused by environmental groups? ...Just doesn't pass the smell test.

This is the perfect opportunity. Why have no suits been filed against the Sierra Club, for example?

EO 12986. What concerns me more is why hasn't the Justice Department found a US Attorney with some stones?

Great find and post! I have book marked it.

I would modify this important paragraph: Every environmental organization that has sued, or lobbied to prevent logging, and to close forest roads, should be required to man the front lines against every wildfire that burns. To read:

Every enviral nazi who has pushed the no roads policy, no harvesting of even dead trees and no brush removal should be forced to fight these fires all summer, this fall and into winter.

They should be taken up into smoke jumping airplanes and fitted in air with a parachute and give a 30 second lesson on how to jump and survive. Then,use cattle prods force them out of the planes. Just before they jump, strap a hoe dag and one canteen of water around their necks. Then push them out.

Once on earth in the middle or on the edge of a roaring fire that is the direct result of their agenda, they can decide to hug a tree or fight the fire.

Why make them jump? Because with the road closures, they are forcing our smoke jumpers to jump into places a decade ago that fire fighters and heavy equipment could have been driven up to fight the fire. How many smoke jumpers have been killed or injured because they had to jump into an area to fight a fire due to closed roads?

Last but not least, is there some Enviral Agenda against using bull dozers and power wagons to make fire lanes? It seems like all we see are pictures of humans fight fires and no heavy duty equipment!
