Bigger Issues than Who Shut Down Yellowstone

There are larger issues surrounding the “shutdown” than who shut down Yellowstone, Yosemite and the WW II Memorial Park– namely runaway government spending threatening our economic freedom. Facing the reality of $17 trillion national debt and $100+ trillion more in unfunded liabilities (Medicaid, Social Security, and pensions) is just too difficult for many people. It’s far easier to blame the Tea Party, Americans For Prosperity than to tackle the problem.

Proponents and Opponents Square Off at Wolf “Listening Session”

May 07, 2012 J

May 3, 2012, Bozeman, Mont.—Wolves took center stage at the Gallatin County Commission hearings tonight. Proponents argued ethical concerns to maintain the wolf population. Others claimed wolves bring in millions of dollars of eco-tourist funds. And a few denied any real impact on the big game population despite a report from a local Fish and Game expert who said she counted only 4 moose in a recent fly-over in Gallatin County.
