    You could say the same thing in any number of cities including your Meca Lost Wages, so its perhaps you who needs to come off the horse of the high moral righteousness.

    Well Nimby sorta had a point about water. We should be surprised that golf course owners and ranchers aren't fighting about it.

    Water is a precious resource in a desert climate.

    Wasted water on golf courses in desert Nevada versus recycled water in Las Vegas for people.
    I live in Illinois and still know more about what goes on out west than you do.
    Too bad that golf water isn't being used to irrigate NV sagebrush grazing land as Mormons do in Utah .

    Don't you have spell check on your computer - where a little red line appears under a misspelled word?

    and just where does it say Congress shall make no law in regards to land rights?

    The GOP House is now dabbling in this sort of thing.
    It is like them to give away the goodies of the USA for their buddies .
    Even deeper, his family has been ranching that land since well before the feds declared it federal land. I think there's something to be said for grandfathered rights here.

    p.s. The BLM manages public land. It's not theirs to give away...its ours.

    And give up control?!? Surely, you jest.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    While I am glad that people stood up to the government, and that the government backed off, if anybody thinks the government has seen the errors of its ways and surrendered, that person is a fool. No, they saw a no-win scenario, and just backed off for another time and/or another tactic. To paraphrase Arnold, they will be back.

    The feds didn't "declare" it federal land. The feds bought the land from Mexico.

    Which should have reverted to NV after becoming a state. And "bought it" is quite the twist. Regardless, it is public land, now.
