Woods for sale. Whose are they?

If you're planning to hike the Appalachian Trail, or visit any other areas in National Forests, you better get there in a hurry. The Bush regime needs money and to get it they are going to sell our woods. They're covering the sale by suggesting it's to help the poor.

Here's the first paragraphs of the story and a link to the rest.


National forest lands could go up for sale
Protests greet Bush administration proposal to offset states' losses from logging revenue

ROANOKE, Va. // Along a rocky path of the Appalachian Trail, Sherman Bamford pointed to a mist-shrouded mountainside in the Thomas Jefferson National Forest, where 121 acres could soon be up for public auction.

The land is on a list of about 300,000 acres of national forest the Bush administration has proposed selling to help fund the operation of rural schools and offset cuts in federal aid.

Forest Service officials said yesterday that they do not expect to sell more than about 175,000 acres in order to reach their goal of raising $800 million. But auctioning any of the land would reverse more than a century of federal policy and law barring such sales of national forests....

You can only sell them once. After the woods are gone maybe Bush will sell some monuments and whatever else he hasn't already given away to Halliburton.

You have to give them this: the administration is passionately committed to freeing the country from the scourge of this green menace.

You know, I'd love to see Bush's grades for science when he was in school. He's like a cartoon villain, scarred by humiliations in school and now determined to have revenge on everything green, scientific or intellectual. Heck, even his No Child Left Behind act looks like the handiwork of a man angry at the intellectually gifted., given the way it forces schools to take money away from programs for advanced children.
