Ken Salazar got one thing right

In another example of how liberals get their panties in a wad when they are challenged for the decisions they make, Ken Salazar resorted to name-calling and innuendo as he tried to defend the Obama Administration's extremist energy policies.

Ken Salazar, criticized the oil and gas industry for accusing the Obama Administration of stifling energy development in the West and offshore.

He also left little doubt that he felt that the industry is nothing less than an arm of the Republican party.

I always find it amusing when liberals resort to this type of attack. No facts to counter the concern, only the typical "divisive" politics they claim to abhor - the same divisiveness that the chosen one claimed he would change.

Ah yes. . . . change. How's that working for ya, America?

However, I still agree with Secretary Salazar concerning how these leases should be handled.

You see, not only does the oil and gas industry "not own the nation's public lands," but neither does the Obama Administration. In fact, since it belongs to the taxpayers, it should be handled the way the taxpayers want it to be handled.

Can you guess what the taxpayers want?

Could it be that it's really Salazar and Obama who are operating as "the arm of a political party" (i.e. environmental extremists in the Democrat party)? Could it be that Obama, with his socialist/Marxist domestic policies, is more interested in seeing another big business go down in the name of "spreading the wealth?"

Anyway you look at it, at least Salazar got one thing right - the land belongs to the taxpayers. Now, if we could just get him to do what the taxpayers want done.

I could not have said it better myself, except we have been Kalifornicated not sodomized by east coast liberalism.

Considering Relocating? Think about Colorado Springs…

Outside Magazine just ranking Colorado Springs as the best place to live.

Outside Magazine lists as a drawback that it might be get this TOO CONSERVATIVE for some people.

As you know, Money Magazine consistently usually ranks it number 1 as well.

I f you or a CONSERVATIVE person is considering relocating, I’d invite you to tell them about this family values oasis. I’d personally suggest Northern Colorado Springs as being the best and the most conservative.

And just to lay my cards on the table, I am not in the Real Estate business and make nothing off anyone moving here. I just know that Soros and others have dumped millions into Colorado and have succeeding in taking over the state government for the first time in decades recently.
The Springs loses out to Denver and Boulder in the state elections but it is still close enough to make a difference.
Pass this along.

Take America back starting at the center...


I didn’t make the Outside or the Money ranking, I am just reporting it!

Also check this out:

“Currently, Democrats are in control of both chambers of the General Assembly. The 64th Colorado General Assembly is the first to be controlled by the Democrats in FORTY YEARS.”

So say what you want, until recently CO was as pubbie as CA was ‘RAT infested and for a longer span of time.
That is what I mean by let the Soros millions be spent in vain.

Salazar is a crook. He’s also one of the largest ranch owners in Colorado. He was responsible for cutting back on the wells people could put in for water. Except his ranch of course.

Salazar is a joke.

He wants to remove thousands of Nevada’s natural wild horses and scatter them all over the USA.

This means a complete change in their diet—their predators—parasites and other infectious problems.

The West is open—not nearly fenced as much as other parts of the country.
These horses are used to traveling from the lower areas to the higher mountains as the spring turns into summer, and the reverse in the fall.

Open Range is the norm here in Nevada, and it doesn’t exist in many other states.

Salazar is dead wrong about his plans to put horses elsewhere.

Wolves would be a problem, along with higer traffic from the beginning.

How this person can claim to have any idea of how to take care of large animals is beyond me.
