It ain’t just democrats. Michigan governor Rick Snyder is grabbing all kinds of green spaces. Just yesterday he announced that he was spending $38 million on green corridors, buffer zones and even a 2000 acre swath near me. There will be matching federal funds.
This is what the environmental lobby in Washington manages to do with our tax money - they have their lackies in congress and the EPA use it to bribe cohorts and the naive.
If Rick Snyder is one of them, he should go. If he is just being fooled without knowing what he's playing into ...he should go. The staples of "Gang Green" are sold through soft sounding projects that will appeal to everyone: "Who doesn't want clean water, clean air and greenbelt bike paths?"
Ask again: "Who wants to give up freedom to look at special landscapes they can't touch?"
