Re: 2013 Senate Bill 78 (Restrict setting aside state land for “biological diversity” )  by truckingal on January 31, 2013 
This is long-overdue! For far too long, the university elites and their miseducated acolytes have been performing a land-grab on the rural areas of the State. This Gaia worship has gone on for too long: it is time to begin using actual science to determine what lands actually need to be preserved and stop using taxpayer dollars and loss of property rights to restrict the use of said 'protected' land from the average citizen. Any and every area creates its own unique eco-system, same as every square inch of land is a part of one watershed or another. Restricting usage based on these definitions is simply an effort to reduce us all to government-sponsored tenants in some high-rise apartment so that they and their chosen few may enjoy OUR land at OUR expense without having to pay the actual cost of owning and maintaining that land! We left the Old World to be able to own land and escape the feudal tyranny 350 years ago! Lets put a stop to its resurrection right here and right now.
