Typical Obama... Expand protection of trees and rocks, while radically supporting sucking the brains out of babies in the womb. His supporters would chain themselves to trees to protect "potential" eagle life in an egg, but have someone else throw their own children in a human dumpster.

This is a passion of mine when it comes to the greenies and their agendas, not just here, but world-wide.
God we need to get out of the UN...which I have been saying for more years than I can remember.
This land grab by the govt. is absolutely horrendous...I read or heard somewhere that the govt. with this bill passing has finally succeeded in acquiring control of more land now than the private property owners.
Be afraid...very afraid.

Why are you on the side of communism. Why would you want the government to own all the land? So they can rent it to your grandchildren like in communist countries where the people own nothing? I don't get it. What do Republicans have to do with it. They do the same thing as Democrats now. Bush helped kick us towards socialism and Obama is takng us into the end zone. Why would you think socialism is a good thing when Europe is about to self destruct from it? We still have a chance if people start to see the problem and not the party.

We ALREADY have millions of "protected" acres in the Northwest. There is enough old growth to put a grin on every dope-smoking tree hugger!
We don't need more wilderness.
We need real jobs, created by real businesses.

You political slaves are sickening. Why don't you just pay all the burden for the Nanny State and it's slick salesmen with their ties and lies?

This government land grab will only benefit those (China) who hold US debt and the soon-to-be-bankrupt government has to sell its assets in a fire sale.

Where will the environmentalists be then? Undoubtedly distracted by the Federal Media over some other non-issue.

Don't bring other issues into this. This has nothing to do with abortion you moron. We are talking about environmental protection. Did you even read the article?

"Opponents, mostly Republicans, have called the legislation a "land grab" that would block energy development on vast swaths of federal land."

Quote from the article. WHY IS THIS SUCH A BIG DEAL?!

Spread of communism? I hate to tell all of you this but the majority of America is infected with this nasty little parasite known as apathy. They don't give a damn WHAT we are progressing towards. They can barely see their hand in front of their face.

Americans, when it comes down to it, care about the RIGHT NOW, not the future. I agree that we are headed towards a socialistic type government, but the transition will be so gradual that I doubt we will even notice. I like to use the analogy of a frog in a frying pan. Turn the heat up quickly, he jumps out. Turn it up slowly, however, and he's burned alive.

Not that extreme of a difference between frogs and humans intellectually anyway.

Ugh.

Just WHAT is he doing rigt? He is DESTROYING the constitution and our nation.

Since WHEN is it OK for the gpovernment to take over a private company? Since when does the president turn into a car salesman overnight?

Obama and his SOCIALIST AGENDA is ruining our nation.

You HAVE to be dumber than BUSH to have VOted for Obama.

Obama must be IMPEACHED> We have a Hiltler on our hands. It only took Hitler 18months to turn Germany from a democracy to a dictatorship. Bammy is moving WAY FASTER!

He knows the car industry??????????

The MSM is covering up the fact that a prominant doctor back east was almost blown to smithereens when the lithium battery in his hybrid Lexus exploded as he started the engine to go to work! The blast was heard a mile away!

The real culprit in the collapse of GM is the jolly GREEN giant, AL Gore, and his global warming hoax! The price of oil and gasoline is being manipulated as we speak in order to get back to $5 gasoline. We are being forced to drink the Kool-Aid! But I will NEVER stop driving my GM Yukon..never, ever, ever!

He has promised to bankrupt the coal industry. Keep off shore drilling from hurting ocean views, and if you make too much money will send green-shirts to sit in front of your house. Panic and desperation are tools that have been well used.

Or was it 'emergency' legislation?

You're another glittering jewel of colossal ignorance I see.
This power grab was done to stop all production of any kind in this country using our own natural resources instead of being dependent on foreign oil...like O constantly says while he lies between his teeth...this is just what he wants, along with this other far leftist buddies.
You really need to get a grip...maybe you will see the forest for the trees when it is far too late to do anything about it and it hits you and yours right where the sun doesn't shine...
He has the LAND in one hand and the AUTO INDUSTRY in the other...and we're all screwed!

Another land grab like Clinton did. It's not to protect anything except what is below the land.
Ask George Soros why he had BO do this.

Good post.

You obviously hate Bush deficits as well as Obama and his crowd.

I have no problem with folks who hate both parties.

I just hate Bush idiots who think he never ran a deficit or screwed this country over.

Because Bush = the worst President ever.

Interestingly, the media has pretty much kept this amazing designation a secret. Why? Because Bush did it!!

Is is just me or does the future sound more and more like the movies, Escape to L.A. and Escape to New York, with Kurt Russell.

When I saw those movies many years ago, I thought yeah right, that can happen in America the land of the free, now I'm wondering, where is all the freedom going????
