In a statement released by the white house last month:
the “Blue Ridge Parkway and Town of Blowing Rock Land Exchange Act of 2009,” which authorizes the Department of the Interior to exchange with the Town of Blowing Rock, North Carolina, approximately 20 acres of Federal land located in the Blue Ridge Parkway for approximately 192 acres of land owned by the Town.

The Blowing Rock Land Exchange Act is about crooked government. The Town of Blowing Rock bought 192 acres a few years ago for the purpose of preserving the personal view of Councilwoman Barbara Ball whose 1.3 million dollar home overlooks the 192 acre parcel.

The Town of Blowing Rock bought the land from the Nature Conservancy with taxpayer money.
Enter Congreswoman Foxx. The Town met secretly with Foxx on March 20. 09'. In May Foxx introduced the bill. What most don't know is local men and women in Blowing Rock were unable to get a voice in the land trade.

Sportsmen who donated money to the Nature Conservancy for original purchase of the land will not be allowed to hunt on the land once it is transferred to the Park Service. Another example of government doing what it wants without input from citizens.

That's got to be the most ignorant thing I've ever heard (other than obama would make a great president)
You may be willing to give up land to the democrap nazi's but WE aren't.

The government should confiscate all of Watauga County, put a 20-foot high fence around it, and let all the crooks and sickos that infest it have it. 95% of the people who live in Valle Crucis marry family members anyway. It would be no great lose to the rest of NC.
