    Western states move to take over federal land

    Cliven Bundy’s dispute with the Federal Government has sparked the concerted effort of representatives from 8 western states to regain control of at least some of their lands:

    Nevada range war: Western states move to take over federal land (+video) - CSMonitor.com
    In Salt Lake City Friday, representatives from Utah, Idaho, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Wyoming, Oregon, and Washington met for a “Legislative Summit on the Transfer of Public Lands.”

    "Those of us who live in the rural areas know how to take care of lands," Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder said at a news conference. "We have to start managing these lands. It's the right thing to do for our people, for our environment, for our economy and for our freedoms."

    Here’s a list showing percentages of federal land by state, according to the Congressional Research Service. It includes the US Bureau of Land Management, the US Forest Service, National Parks, and military bases: Nevada 81, Alaska 62, Utah 67, Oregon 53, Idaho 62, Arizona 42, California 48, Wyoming 48, New Mexico 35, Colorado 36.

    State lawmakers say they’re better prepared to manage such lands, both for the environment and for regional economies. "There is a distinct difference in the way federal agencies are managing the federal lands today," Sen. Fielder said. "They used to do a good job, but they are hamstrung now with conflicting policies, politicized science, and an extreme financial crisis at the national level. It makes it impossible for these federal agencies to manage the lands responsibly anymore."


    Thankfully, at least a few states have joined forces to end federal land tyranny_

    Which is only one of many tyrannies an out of control Federal Government is now guilty of_

    The best thing the radically left Obama Administration has done is to unite main-stream America_

    When a crime is rewarded ~ it becomes epidemic:

    Sometimes right wibgers want so badly to buy into a narrative they'll leave their dictionary at home.

    Perhaps if I joined a 'militia' this Bundy crap would all make sense.

    I don't really care about Bundy but I think it is reasonable for states to control more of their land.

    Start your own militia, with your own objectives and it would make even more sense.

    [emphasis added by bubba]
    what has sen fielder actually told us which would allow improvements to be made by federal land management agencies
    what policies are conflicting and how does the to be identified conflict hamper the land management to the state's detriment
    what does he mean by politicized science. what about the science is found unscientific
    and that national financial crisis he mentions. isn't it the federal government which is bailing out the states that are experiencing lower revenues and higher expenses. then how is it the federal financial condition is found to be an impediment to land management
    the senator makes observations which are vague, wrong, and/or without genuine basis regarding federal land management
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    So, they wanna take back THEIR COUNTRY?

    Wonder which tea they were drinking before coming up with this idea? Bundy tea?

    Free grazing = YES!

    Free Camping = NO!
