You are very good at recognizing areas in which you believe that the Gov't is violating your rights, but all I asked for was a proposed solution and very briefly discussed reasons that "solutions" were complicated.
At no time did I say "This stuff doesn't go on"
I posted this in response to Chris assertion this type of stuff "doesn't go on".
I do realize that you do not like having different opinions posted on any subject, but keeping this one on the topic of Federal land ownership, what do you propose to do? How does that look when the process is complete?
So who are you going to "Give" the land too? I am just saying that the Federal Gov't has owned the land for something like 150 years, so how is this going to get resolved?
The land was certainly not taken away from anyone living today and selling it to the highest bidder pretty much guarantees there will be no more public access so what is your proposed solution for this problem you see with the Federal Gov't owning and managing all this land?
Mike, I believe that people who want the wilderness areas untouched and untraveled have just as much right to those areas as the people who want to take their sleds into the back country. With the thousands of square acres already dedicated to motorized use in North Routt and Rabbit Ears, I would think the motorized bunch could respect the wishes of the other side on lands we all own together.
Sadly, this does not seem to be the case. Both sides of the argument seem to think that if they cannot have access to the entire forest it is somehow unfair. IMO, the current setup seems fair enough to all users and the existing limitations should be respected by all.
When was it owned by "The People" Barry? Not in my lifetime or yours, and if you want to give the land back to the original owners you should be talking to the Indian tribes that were there when Lewis and Clark went thru.
Another argument might be that "The People" already own the land in the name of our duly elected Government.
Ken gets this one exactly correct.
No Mark, even your "Context" is ugly and out of line. Offering half-hearted apologies after the fact does nothing but fuel the fire you are building. Please, keep digging and let everyone out there understand what drives your thoughts. You do more damage to your cause than I ever could.
" I don't know who the Kanaka Maoli are and don't give a rats ass. Nor why they can't come up with a few more letters for their stupid language. But if they met me and tried to "re-arrange" my "true Haole feelings" then they would also meet my Haole 45ACP."
Just the most recent example of your "over the top" vitriol. Again, your words speak for themselves. No additional words are necessary for forum readers to get a clue about your personality and disposition.
Keep digging Mark, keep digging. You own words do more damage to your positions than anything else that could be written.
Your words stand on their own Mark, all I did was call attention to them.
Another blatant statement about ignoring the law from Mark Hartless.
