    And Once Again

    DUMP PUBLIC LANDS
    Watch The Fracas
    it's a recurrent push
    CHECK THE SMILES  --  MEH
    -------




    ..  Our buddies in Bozeman are doing their best to plunder and remove protections from our public lands.
    .. We're not sure we could survive in this world if our legislature met every year.
    .. We learn from THE MONTANA COWGIRL of the latest assault on our public lands.
    .. A bill, (HJ 9,) sponsored by Kerry White,  [chairman of the Natural Resources Committee,] is being voted on in his committee today. We'll watch closely. So should you.
    FROM HYALITE
    .. It's a bill to remove state protection of Wilderness Study Areas,  this includes the Hyalite-Porcupine-Buffalo Horn area.
    .. Judging from the comments in response to the cowgirl post, there are quite a few folks in Bozeman that think the bill is a good idea.
    .. Greg Gianforte is a not so silent partner in this effort. Keep in mind that he was born in San Diego, California and lives in the wilds of New Jersey.
    .. In 2009, the Gianforte Family Foundation helped fund the $1.5 million creationist dinosaur museum. He's running, [with skill and skulduggery,] again in Montana.

    .. Looks like a bit of snow mixed in with the rain outside.
    ..It's gray enough to fish a spell if we can find the special gray day flies the kids next door gave me.
