- ASSHOLE OF THE YEAR -

Mark Ray - Bush's point man to open all public lands to destruction

It's about the ROADLESS RULE for OUR FORESTS:


What is the background of the Roadless Rule?
The Roadless Rule was first issued by President Bill Clinton's administration in January 2001, as a national guideline, ending virtually all logging, road building and development in America's wildest remaining national forests. But, in 2004, the Bush administration issued a new state-by-state rule that would allow state governors to petition the U.S. Forest Service regarding how much land they want protected in their state. In 2005, Clinton's rule was officially abandoned leaving the use and protection of the land up to state governors. On September 20, 2006, a federal district court ordered reinstatement of the Clinton-era Roadless Rule to protect almost 50 million acres of wild national forests and grasslands from road building, logging and development. The Bush administration immediately appealed that decision. For a complete timeline of the rule visit EarthJustice.org


THIS BUSH "ADMINISTRATION" WOULD DIG UP YOUR GREAT-GRANDMOTHER'S BODY AND SELL IT IF IT WOULD MAKE A PAL OF THEIRS SOME MONEY!

No comments:

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
