Received today:

Have you heard about the Bush administration's plans to put our
public lands on "blue-light special?" The President's proposed
2007 budget includes provisions to sell off as much as 800,000
acres of our national forests and other public lands to the
highest bidder!

Will you join me in speaking out against this absurd proposal?

Congress now!

This is not the first time the anti-public-lands crowd has
attempted to sell off America's public estate. Just two months
ago, similar attempts to sell off millions of acres of land were
made, but conservation-minded Democrats and Republicans stopped
the idea.

Public outrage can ensure that Congress takes the same path
today and rejects this short-sighted scheme. The Wilderness
Society has set up an action page so you can send a quick
message to Congress opposing the sell-off of lands that belong
to all Americans. Click below to learn more and take action

Cheer up! It's the Republican way! Everything is for sale to the highest bidder. Your just a tree hugging do gooder that has the absurd idea that there is this thing called the common good! Please be content to leave things to the private sector! They know what's best for the people!
