Barbarians are at the gate

For too many years men and women of the outdoors have been complacent when defending the public recreation land we have in the US. I know you don't read this blog or other blogs to hear me banging the drum on conservation. The fact is, if we don't wake up soon and fight for what we have it will soon be a fond memory. If you think it won't happen, did you really think some domestic terrorist group would ever commandeer a federal bird refuge! A freakin' bird refuge! In Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and many other western states, oligarchs, and their henchmen (paid off politicians),  are pushing legislation in respective state houses today that will take OUR public land away.  Conservative, misinformed politically active citizens are pushing for the same legislation and will put us on the highway to hell if they have their way.

Today an Idaho bill is being funded and pushed by ALEC (KocH Brothers). The bill's title is Abatement of Catastrophic Public Nuisance.  It lets the land grabbers stick their foot in the door  of public land management in an insidious way.  It would start the process of having public land managed by the state instead of the federal government. Would you like to see strip mines and oil wells on you next hike?  What about orange, wretched water or scorched earth grazing. There are many more in the hopper being supported by these goons and their minions.....What's yours should be mine and what is mine is mine. You don't know how to manage  these land for profit like we do.... It is the unspoken policy of the 1/10 percenters.

 Please help fight this modern day class warfare being waged to take your fishing, hiking, birdwatching,  hunting, plein air painting, photography and any number other great outdoor pursuits away. There are any number of wonderful conservation groups that need your support. High Country Citizens Alliance, Trout Unlimited, The Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, to name a diverse few. A way you can get involved now is to sign this petition. It is a no bullshit way to get your name on the line and  start helping. 

Stand up and start banging that drum. Joni Mitchell said it best, "you don't know what you got until its gone".

  1. Hello everyone, I'm Patricia Sherman in Oklahoma USA right now. I would like to share with you my experience of borrowing USD $185,000.00 to clear my bank draft and start a new business. It all started when I lost my house and I took my stuff because of the bank policy and I met some bills and some personal needs. So I became very desperate and started looking for funds in every way. Fortunately for me, a friend of mine, Linda told me about a credit company firm, I was intrigued by the fraud, but I was intrigued by my situation and had no choice but to get advice from my friend about this company. contacting them really doubted me because of my past experience with online lenders, did you know that little? '' This company has been very helpful to me and my colleague and today, thanks to this credit company, the proud owner of well-organized work and responsibilities, they smiled back at me. So if you really need to grow or start your own business, or if you really need to borrow money in any financial hardship, we recommend you find a financial development opportunity in your business today. {E-mail:} ... online for credit not a victim of scam. Thank you.
