That ain't enough for Blanco. She wants 50% ownership of Federal tracts, too, and unbelievably there are people here supporting that.
I can't believe you still are not aware that most inland states get 50% of royalties off of FEDERAL land. We had this discussion a few nights ago and why you seem to ignore that is puzzling to me.
Most states, such as New Mexico and Oklahoma, states you said just a couple of days ago got NO royalties from oil and gas tracts, get 50% of royalties off of federally owned land within those states. Come on now, let's be consistent. Federal land onshore/federal land offshore. What's the difference? You can argue that you don't want to give us the 50% because of a deal made 50 years ago. That's one thing but to say it's stealing profits is over the top.
