Environmental movement

By From page A5 | June 21, 2013

EDITOR:

Quite unbelievable that they just don’t give up … the environmental movement that is.

Just when things were beginning to settle out and a light at the end of the tunnel of legislation was discovered in the myriad of papers produced by “Do Gooders” protecting something that does not need protecting … WHAMMEEE … they got us again.

Yellow-legged frogs, yosemite toads, mercury in the rivers and protected wetlands all necessitate closing roads, trails and even the rivers we dredge on. Jeez, even the air we breathe is regulated.

Go a little bit into the convoluted system of “shutting us out” and you can see that “they” have access to all they wish to deny us. They get to hike the trails and drive the roads to investigate the damage supposedly caused by “the public.” They even have the ****s to attempt to acquire a grant to dredge Combie Reservoir in Nevada County to remove mercury, all the while keeping dredgers out even though dredgers are doing the same clean up of mercury in the rivers.

I hate to think it but there doesn’t seem to be any way for “us” to reclaim our county or our country. It will take a lot of people moving into uncomfortable spaces to get our voices heard. Good luck and may God Bless America and her Constitution.
