Skip to comments.Out Of Touch President Obama Fiddles While Tombstone, AZ Burns

Welcome to the Wild West, 2012 style. The Feds to Tombstone: If you want to fix your water line, better lawyer up and talk to President Obama....
Obama, is truly the out of touch candidate. The U.S. Forest Service of which the president is ultimate boss is preventing, on the flimsiest of excuses, Tombstone Arizona from rebuilding its water pipeline. Obama, conniving, is putting Tombstone, a fixture of American history, in mortal danger.
A massive forest fire in 2011 wiped out the vegetation in Coronado National Park, wherein lies Tombstones waterworks which were destroyed by the following torrential rains.
The ensuing monsoon damage was severe but readily fixable. Except that Tombstones water sources are surrounded by a designated wilderness area. Their water was privately owned and therefore exempted by President Teddy Roosevelt from national forest status and, thus, exempted from the Wilderness Act. That Act applies only to national forest, not private property. And yet, the U.S. Forest service takes the position that Tombstone needs its permission to bring in tractors and bulldozers to clear the rubble throttling its water supplies.
Tombstone cannot survive long on the tiny wells located in town or on the small amount of water it temporarily was able to hand patch through its water main. It needs to use regular earth-moving equipment to repair its lines.
if Barack Obama lets the Forest Service arbitrarily, perhaps even illegally, refuse to allow Tombstone to rebuild its water lines, Obama just might end up reading, by firelight, his own political tombstone: Barack Obama, Out of Touch.

The environmentalist/ecology/conservationism movement is really about sweeping all peasant trash from rural areas and preventing new, productive business competition. They live an artificial world away from common people and assume that their own perceptions—even about what they see with their own eyes—are real.
Some academics have degrees but no common sense; others are even worse.
They know not what they do
And now we will have to protect them for Jaguars:
"I got my eye on your back, looking for a good place to stick the knife in."
That is so very true.
That’s true. I’ve seen some who were quite spoiled, affected and conducting their classes and departments as playpens for acts of revenge against healthier groups.
Imported, not native Jaguars ?
Like the imported, not native Canadian wolves .
Undocumented jaguars from Mexico.
“let the government explain why some citizens deserve to die of thirst.
that would be an interesting position for the fascists to take into the public arena.”
But that is what the enviroleft really believes.
“Humanity is a virus infecting the earth mother goddess Gaia.”
Of course the enviroleft nomenklatura are exempt from that dogma.
On a 'series' note. Politics has always been a part of Tombstone's history and was a major factor in the 'Gun Fight At The OK Corral' in October 1881.
The Earp brothers and the town leaders were Republicans. The locals, like the corrupt Sheriff John Behan and his cattle thief cronies the Clantons, McLaurys and the Cowboys, were Democrats, and the wounds of the Civil War still festered. So to say there was animosity between the two groups would be an understatement.
(Amazing isn't it. Even in the 1880's the RATS were nothing but a corrupt crime organization.)
A recent proposal by the Greenies involves millions of acres of Western N Dakota, western S Dakota, eastern Montana & NE Wyoming.
They was a large “BISON RANGE’. That would endanger every cattle rancher in those millions of acres, since brucellosis is still prevalent in Bison & cattle herds which contrat it must be destroyed.
These PRIVATE cattle ranches will be put out of business by such a ‘BISON RANGE’.
See current copy of Range Magazine for article.
That garbage didn't fly last time they were out here, and it won't fly in the future.
I had no idea about this potential huge land grab to "save" an extirpated cat. Unfrickinbelievable!
Thanks for the pings, Cedar Dave and George!
Now I'm going to say it: If Obama wins in November, Arizona needs to consider prepping the paperwork for seccession.
Or there won't be any Arizona left. Remember the Parashant!
And by the way, I've only stumbled on Range Magazine a few times -- but it is the BEST magazine out there on issues involving land use in the West. I'm very impressed with it.
Hell, I just should subscribe to it.
If you want to be on or off the Agenda 21 ping list, please notify me by Freepmail. It is a relatively low volume list in which we have been exploring the UN Agenda21 and related topics. We have collected our studies with threads, links, and discussions on the Agenda 21 thread which can be found here:
NEW ACTION THREAD:
Post 128 of the Action Thread is a summary of the history of Agenda 21, what they are doing, what to do about it and a good bibliography for further reading.
That sounds very good on paper. Here’s the problem: The Forest Service will move in, with banned to the city power equipment, and rip up the pipes. Then they’ll send the city two things. 1) A permanent refusal and 2) The bill for tearing up the pipes.
