“The Bush administration will unveil a proposal Friday to sell up to 200,000 acres of national forest land in “isolated parcels” ranging from a quarter of an acre to 200 acres, much of it in California.” KnightRidder
Bush will do anything to make his financial ruin of this country look good, including selling off huge tracts of our National Forest Land for next to nothing. And of course he uses bogus logic, claiming this will help fund Rural Schools.
This is just Budgetary legerdemain to disguise the Tax Gifts to the Rich, cover the immense build up of the Military, and probably gift cheap land to his buddies!
A lot of this selloff is California Lands, but it is also affecting plenty of land everywhere in the Country, including over TEN THOUSAND ACRES here in North Carolina.
