One Response to More on the injustice of the tiny federal grazing fees

  1. JimT says:

    Just confirms what we all know…it is a sweetheart deal for public land ranchers, and the system is set up to pay more attention to their voices than most other users of the public lands–certainly recreational users.

    Here is a link to a very interesting NPR story on a Texas rancher..private land rancher..who has been restoring some of the most badly damaged land in Texas. His name is David Bamberger, and all ranchers could learn from this guy and his philosophy. Worth a listen.

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
