Federal Forest\'s are Going, Going, Gone!

Under the proposal, two-thirds of America's remaining wild forests would be kept pristine by banning the construction of logging roads in undeveloped federal areas.
Clinton intends to avoid pushing the plan through the Republican-controlled Congress, instead using internal U.S. Forest Service procedures to include a broad environmental review that would effectively ban new roads.
The areas earmarked for protection are spread across 192 million acres of federal forests from the Southern Appalachians to the Chugach National Forest in Alaska.

This is taken from MSNBC website, My thoughts are with no more logging roads for access than no more fishing, site seeing , hunting, etc... This will affect everyone not just the four-wheel drive community. It looks like it is time for some good old 60's activism....or wait is it too late?

Re: Federal Forest\'s are Going, Going, Gone!

/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif you can do like the people out here in CA, and just sit there, voting for democrats while those same democrats go to the state capital and pass a slew of laws giving the homos the run of the school system, providing for lawsuits if you even speak up against perversion, as in reading Romans to someone...and literally make homosexuality the law of the land.....you could do that....yes you could... Just keep electing democrats, and see your rights go by-by. First guns, then SUVs, then fishing rods, then outdoor magazines, then the INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE. Vote for Algore and just see what happens....IF there is even an election at all...... the dirtbag is going to try and fake an incident so he can declare martial law and never have to leave the white house.....IF they can just get those guns away from us....like they did in Australia..in Canada...in England. It's here folks....it is no longer the ravings of some looney crackpot. Hang onto those guns, they are the only thing that separates Americans from total government control. Man to have President Eisenhower back!! /wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif

Re: Federal Forest\'s are Going, Going, Gone!

Thank you CJDave for saying what needs to be said!/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif I agree TOTALY! Unfortunately, there aren't enough people left in this country who care enough to actually FIGHT for what they bieleve in./wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif Present company excluded, the people on this board are probably the most active there are. But when you start mentioning politics everyone gets all irate/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif about this being a Jeep board and not a government issues board (remember the week or so on the last board?). If only they knew how much these issues affect their Jeeping they would be more active. If you are active in defending all of your rights (defending some of them just wont do!) then accept my apologies for rambling, but it needed to be said./wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif Keep 'em in the "X" ring!

Re: Federal Forest\'s are Going, Going, Gone!

Fighting this sort of thing costs money, lots of it. Case in point being the UFWDA lawsuit against the USFS. At our club meeting
last night we started discussing something that other clubs may want to consider. Events we sponsor that have entry fees, such as
our Rock Crawling Contest in April will have some of the proceeds donated to the fight we seem to have been forced into by the
GAGS. Like I said, money is the key to the fight, and THEY have lots of it.
