The meeting concluded today. In a nutshell, the task before the Board was to solve the Arab-Israeli conflict by only sanctioning the Israelis.
Public comments were heard after lunch. Notably absent were representatives of oil, mining and timber companies.
- There were no hikers or campers complaining about wild stallions coming into their camps to steal mares
- There were were no roughnecks or pipefitters demanding that wild horse numbers be reduced to AML immediately
- There were no backhoe operators and truck drivers suggesting that ovaries be ripped out of mares to control herd size
- There were no riggers and loggers pushing for alternatives to nonlethal methods if population control is not achieved in a reasonable timeframe
But shills for the public-lands ranchers did all of those things.
Where’s the common ground, the two-state solution?
There isn’t any.
