    Clearly you believe that, as you posted it. I find it to be quite out of touch with reality.

    And where's your evidence of that?
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Seems a lot of people here do not understand what an opinion is, and they constantly clamor for a 'source' or 'evidence'... get a clue people.

    Are your a digruntal federal employee or retired federal employee?

    My experience of 30+ years working in natural resources for the feds says your worng. IMO, what has the federal land agencies in a bind is the laws and direction given by Congress and the President Adminstration. They make the laws/regs and budgets the agencies live under. It is Congress and the President that lack the land management skills. Most federal employees working in natural resources are very dedicated to good stewardship of the land. There of course some bad employees, just like in any business in the private sector.

    I think too many places have been designated National Parks/Forests, etc., but certainly the biggies should stay in government hands.
    The great thing about NP's being government owned is that you can see these great places free of charge. Put them in the hands of private enterprise and the land will be raped and desecrated to squeeze every possible profit out of it.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Thanks for at least admitting to your bias.

    Re: National Parks

    Look Arbo, we disagree and what you're saying about the FS doesn't jive at all with my experience with them. I've shared a little of my experience with them that has led to to my opinion, what's yours? What encounter soured you so on the US Forest Service?

    biased. could that not be said about you who never has worked in a federal land management position?
    No personal attack. mearly trying to understand your one sided / misinformed view of federal land management employees.

    No spin Arbo. you have opinions, but nothing to base it on. So show that even the majority of federal land management workers are incompentent, not caring, and want to do a poor job. Show me where I am wrong with my bias.

    I mearly informed you that Congress and the President administration has more to say on what goes on with federal lands than the average worker.

    Re: National Parks

    The United States government has direct ownership of almost 650 million acres of land (2.63 million square kilometers) – nearly 30% of its total territory. These federal lands are used as military bases or testing grounds, nature parks and reserves and indian reservations, or are leased to the private sector for commercial exploitation (e.g. forestry, mining, agriculture). They are managed by different administrations, such as the Bureau of Land Management, the US Forest Service, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the National Park Service, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the US Department of Defense, the US Army Corps of Engineers, the US Bureau of Reclamation or the Tennessee Valley Authority.

    (1,000,000 square miles)

    That does not include land owned by local, country or state government. It also does not include land the government has declared can not be developed.

    Yes.

    Because there's a difference between an educated opinion and an uneducated opinion.

    Lack of evidence to support your opinion proves which kind yours is.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
