Letters to the Editor for Nov. 21, 2011


What’s behind road closures?
To the editor:
For those who have been paying attention to the issue it is clear that the current administration, specifically through the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Interior, is engaged in the largest land grab in history. Under the cover of various names huge chunks of many states are being declared off limits to the very public that owns the land.
Examples are efforts by executive fiat to close lands for “desert and mountain protection,” new national wilderness areas, and new national wild lands protection areas.  The only protection our public lands need is protection from a government that is bent upon implementation of the United Nations Agenda 21. If you are unaware of what that agenda is do some online research.  It is frightening in its implications particularly in rural areas like ours.
Is the Forest Service “Travel Management Plan” part of this overriding agenda to deprive citizens access to the very public lands we own?  I think so. What I know is the forests which have already made public their TMPs have proposed closures that will negatively impact our economy, our recreation, and our lifestyles. I think it is more than coincidence that all of these close public lands to public access initiatives are being pushed at the same time.
I am not a “conspiracy theorist” by any stretch of the imagination.  All you have to be is a careful observer of what the federal government is doing to recognize that “we the people” are being sold out in favor of a new one world order.
