Posted on 04/17/2010 12:00:48 PM PDT by STARWISE
President Barack Obama launched a new initiative Friday to conserve cherished land and encourage more Americans to enjoy the outdoors.
The president said the "America's Great Outdoors" program will involve a series of listening sessions throughout the nation to solicit an array of ideas.
Obama is to receive a report by Nov. 15 outlining an action plan to both reconnect Americans to nature and enhance conservation efforts.
Eight departments and the White House Office of Management and Budget are to work with the initiative to "identify existing resources," and to align policies to meet the initiative's goals.

This is nothing more than a land grab to keep us from being able to use our resources. I'm sure the Sierra Club fools are laughing all the way back to the hills they morphed from. Some of us though, have got the governments number on this one. It's not about "conserving" anything.

"He promised that it won't be a big federal program driven from Washington"
Whew, I'm sure glad of that....
"The initiative will be led by the heads of the Environmental Protection Agency, White House Council on Environmental Quality and departments of Agriculture and Interior."
WTF!!!?!?! If that doesn't scream "big federal program driven from Washington" I don't know what does! Does this tie in with Moo-chelle's running the Government Fat Farms for Kids?

Here we go with the ‘listening sessions’ again. Too bad he didn’t bother to ‘listen’ to the Tea Party demonstrators.
I thought it said, “OUTHOUSE”, not outdoors.
ROTFL!!! The Obama regime is definitely the Mother of All Freakshows.
Why does everybody have to do what Little Lord Fauntleroy wants? I thought the government was supposed to be responsible to the people, not the other way around.
Yet another land locking to keep out off-roaders and people with guns. Only the
sierra klub types need apply.
HEY OBAMA .....WE NEED JOBS....YOU KNOW THE THING YOUR STIMULAS WAS SUPPOSED TO CREATE BUT DIDNT!!!!!
Land grab and total use control
This is just another set up for the Obama Administration to give out money to their sellected politically worthy for bike trails. Listening tour? Hah!
If we don’t get some JOBS, that’s where everyone is going to be sleeping...in the GREAT OUTDOORS!
When he is on his listening toour, does he expect his subjects to say, “Thank you”?
In other words, they're rolling out the Delphi Technique
Will these listening sessions be indoors or out?
Do you have a map that shows how much US land is under UN control via the Heritage Treaty thingy?
Incredible that the fed own any state land at all.. or at least a reasonable amount intended for specific use and purpose.. and not such blatant grabs as we have seen over the years.
Good stuff at that link! Bookmarked.
He must have something good plan for them to come back recommending to him—or he wouldn’t schedule the report for right after the election!
