I have read estimates that 40% of the USFS budget is for legal costs.

I have too. When liberals want something, they don't argue and debate. They make demands.

What do you think about adopting their tactics? Freep the Sierra Club and demand they agree to a one year moratorium on lawsuits against the USFS. Make the point that our taxes must be used for the next year to prevent forest fires. Tell the media about the demand and insist that the USFS be allowed to do their job and not spend its time in court.

One year is reasonable. The public will buy that. The USFS should welcome the encouragement and everyone likes to see lawyers out of work.

You are asking a rational question that demands a long answer for which I don't have time right now. Here's a shortie:
  1. Get Bush to rescind Clinton EO-12986. That ends the protection of both agencies and NGOs from civil liability through their membership in the IUCN.
  2. The States should decare a fuel emergency along the lines of New Mexico's SB-1. Legislation stating that the fuel is due to negligence makes the Feds liable because the fires are not an Act of God.
  3. The homewoners would then be able to sue both the RICOnuts and the Feds and assess punative damages for their obvious cocollusion and possible fraud representing profit interests.
Would I ever like to see Ashcroft appoint a few US Attorneys with the stones to go after these thugs.

Carry has the full data on this. The Club Sierras and other Druid religions posing as enviralist organizations get a large part of their yearly operating income from these law suits where they sue the federal government.

Then the Clowns in the 9th Circus Court of Clowns, posing as judges, fine the feds big time and we have to pay as large sums go to Club Sierra and other Druid religions posing as good people for nature. Then they go after small farm and land owners to sue to get more money.

Like all socialist/communist rat organizations, they will never give back any funding or stop it for a year or so, until you take a legal ball bat to their heads and knee caps.

Many of the smaller enviral Nazi charities in Oregon are hurting for donations. Their survial depends on the yearly flow of fed monies to them like for ponied up studies on lynxes that weren't there. If they had to give up the fed money for a year, they would be like illegal aliens suddenly not having any welfare.
