Meanwhile in the real world. Montana's own
You see the problem here is that Montana has not had any designated wilderness in 25 years. The enviro-nazis think that is long enough and now want to shut off access to virtually all of the GP just to make themselves feel good. Most of those involved in the lobby and money behind this legislation have never been here and couldn't find the proposed wilderness on a map. It's quite infuriating.
I've been saying for a couple of years now that the enviro-movement doesn't so much care about saving anything but that it's a competition among liberal elites for bragging rights and what they have accomplished in their own minds. They want to brag and say, "I made this wilderness area, what did you do?" I thought I was right on track. As usual though, someone said it long be for me and much more eloquently.
"Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don't mean to do harm - but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or the justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves."

Here is an interesting article by Michael S Coffman PhD about how the taking of private property. From the article "While environmental concerns may be legitimate in some cases, many of the accusations made my environmental nongovernment organizations (NGO's) today are nothing more than perceptions created to indoctrinate the public and cause unfounded fear that generates income for the NGO. Environmental fear has become a multibillion-dollar business that preys on unknowing urbanites."
Make no mistakes, the impact this land grab by the NGO's, through the federal government, is going to affect each and everyone of us. In where we can recreate and in our wallets. More government jobs will need to be created to "manage and police" the ever increasing ownership of federal land.
Funny, I thougth there were more pressing issues out there.
