The New York media (the same that lifted Donald Trump over the Republicans in the delegate race) loves to paint western Americans as a bit unstable. However federal domination of western land is a serious issue, that gives honest people real problems, as Sheriff Marty Gleave described in his powerful testimony.
And so it amuses me to hear of Maine activists sounding like western ranchers as they fight the growth of federal lands in their state!
Roxanne Quimby, co-founder of Burt’s Bees, wants to stand up a new national park in Maine. So she acquired 88,000 acres of land, and is trying to donate it along with $40 million. The government loves growing of course, so they want to find a way to make it work. The problem is, the actual regular people who live there are angry about it!
Government destroying livelihoods, and Barack Obama looking to use executive orders to bypass due process. Well, that’s what happens when your state elects Barack Obama twice when better options were on the ballot.
