Obama's land grab?

A secret administration memo has surfaced revealing plans for the federal government to seize more than 10 million acres from Montana to New Mexico. Just great. All it takes is a stroke of Obama's pen, making a presidential proclamation to nab this land for the feds.

Rep. Robert Bishop, Utah Republican, made the memo public because he didn't want another unilateral land grab by the White House, like what happened under former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter.

Carter took more than 50 million acres in Alaska with a stroke of his pen - do we really want to take away more energy-producing land away from the states, and hand it over to the fed?

On another note, it's not just Toyota who has problems with the accelerator sticking! Ford, GM, all have that problem also. But they aren't going after those companies like they are with Toyota.


  1. Diane:
    These people are kicking a huge snowball down an even HUGER mountain with this one...
    They look at it as a "way to help pay for schools"...
    How's about we take away all this freebie WELFARE crap from about 90% of the recipients?
    THAT'S got to save a TON of cash all around, hmm?

    I guess the next step will be to see if we can cajole CANADA into becoming our 51ST state!
    (we'll probably wind up with Mexico...after all, we've more AMERICANS down there than Mexicans anyway)
    Good luck with that one, eh?
