In many respects the USFS under Dombeck was complicit with the environmentalists when they rolled over and settled the suits and then paid the environmentalists' legal costs. 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.
