    If this isn’t grandstanding by Kempthorne, I don’t know what is. This is akin to a politician telling Budweiser to support drunk driving efforts by giving more money to M.A.D.D. instead of enacting and enforcing laws against drunk driving. If the people of Wyoming are buying this act, they are not very bright–no slight intended! When will the blowhard rhetoric from our politicians become so passe’ that they will stop trying it?

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
