Secret plans are afoot to turn up to 13 million more acres of the western US into "National Monuments", thereby eliminating any uses except limited tourism. Huge areas of the West are already under federal control, including including 84.5 percent of Nevada and 57.4 percent of Utah. Somehow, government ownership of 85% of a state seems a lot more like communism than capitalism, which is exactly how the Obamabots like it.
With the new "monument" designation, they can ensure that when Democratic Manhattan lawyers take a once in a lifetime 2 week vacation in Utah, they won't be bothered by the presence of the "little people" who used to live there.
At a time when the economy is struggling to overcome all the other depressing effects of the Obama program, this new effort will be another nail in the coffin of our economy.
