    Lots of pros and cons and it is likely a corporation could make a big bottom line if they had no government meddling in what they wanted to do with the land.

    Consider big corporations ...Exxon, Big Pharma, Wal Mart ... I am certain they could use those resources and space to make a profit for a few and create more minimum wage jobs?

    Are we hurting out country and being socialist to even have national parks?

    NO
    If a man believes that having national parks is socialist...then he is correct..
    Socialism is not necessarily a bad thing - obviously - as the libertarians and conservative extremists would have one believe.
    And, it would be cause for revolution IF these nut cases think they can take OUR parkland and sell it to big oil and big retail...
    Arbo, I'd say that Utah is doing things to en-richen their lawyers , at the expense of their people...

    As for corporations, owning and running it, hell no.
    I doubt if the "feds" stole anything..
    As I recall, the lands were the property of the federal government BEFORE, Utah became a state..
    And, if wrong..., it will not be the first time...

    Re: National Parks

    It's funny to watch east coasters say the fed is just fine and good at managing land... 1) nowhere in the constitution are they to 'own' any land other than DC, 2) you don't see and deal with the BLM until you head west... believe me, the feds are just as bad at land management as they are everything else.

    I didn't know that he sold national parks to his loads of big corp cronies. Thanks for your salient post.

    Go back to the OP, which said specifically:

    So if a corporation could buy the park and do whatever they wanted to with it, would you support that?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I fully support the creation of National Parks and Wilderness Areas, their maintenance and management being done by the US Forest Service.

    Another incapable of comprehension. Just cause I have 1.5 seconds, I'll point out it appeared you suggested that if states were in control of the lands they'd sell them off to corporations due to the amount of influence the corps have in states... I pointed out the REALITY that some have just as much influence at a national level, yet we haven't seen the land sold off to them. What this does is invalidate the idiotic point you were hinting at. But thanks for failing in your reply.

    The FS is just as bad, if not worse, than the BLM. Mismanagement, and most of the employees don't have a CLUE about the law or regulations regarding the land.
