    Should states take over fed land

    In the PNW feds decimated timber towns with their anti logging rules crafted by San Francisco liberals and now they have shut down national parks and thrown thousands out of work with their political games. Without placing blame on either party I think it's time states took over fed lands and threw the Keystone Cops out of town. These Bozo's in DC are destroying state economies with their political standoffs and using us as pawns in their quest for power so IMO it is time for states to rise up in mass rebellion and take over fed lands.

    Who do you mean by 'states'? Are YOU going to risk life and limb in this or just sit back and demand 'others' do for you?

    I realize paying taxes is a sensitive subject for you but some of us who report all our income pay a lot in taxes that maintain those forests you want to cut without the current regulations and prohibitions on think ALL of us own those forests, not just the locals.

    Now according to the Washington Contract Loggers Assoc. 1.5% of all Washington State jobs are logging related. Also according to these folks the State has done as much as the Feds in 'decimated timber towns' with rules and regulations. Seems protecting the salmon industry's spawning grounds has put a lot of restrictions on logging.

    Maybe instead of trying to incite rebellion the states can buy the lands MY TAXES pay to maintain.
