OK, funds for USFS roads. Now I hope that the USFS refrains from using the funds from installing those “G-D” locked gates that block roads leading into my favorite hunting areas. (The USFS has been taken over by “Watermelons”.)

They sure didn’t eloborate on the decommissioning but talked about better access, it don’t work both ways.

Bubba was clever in calling his *no new roads* program that actually did close thousands of miles of historical ( 1800’s ) well used roads.

Cut off travel between rural towns and more.

The USFS is clever in hiding a piece in the middle of a travel management plan document that closes stuff.

Not all of them, but most, yes. There are still those who fight, but they are losing rapidly to political correctness.

All funds will go for more bike trails is Kalifornia!

We have the worse roads and the finest bike trails known to man!

When are they going to get around to charging bicyclists a registration fee for all the problems they cause?

To say that the stimulus program, TARP and the auto bailout are politcal is an understatement.

For those partisans on-board tonight, what did you think would happen when you engineered the candidacy of the angry little man and ended up with the Magic Negro?
