Bundy-inspired SD legislator would bleed the beast


Update, 12 January, 0755 MST, DiSanto's insurance company husband, Mark gets into county commission race: Rapid City Journal.

South Dakota is the fourth most dependent moocher state yet its governor says he hates dependency.
South Dakota Stock Growers Association leaders are questioning what they’re calling an unbalanced response of federal land management agencies to fires that burned public and private land. Representative Lynne DiSanto is bringing forward a bill, on behalf of the Stock Growers Association, that would hold the federal government responsible for their actions. [Today's KCCR]
Disturbing soils can allow the growth of plants that had been introduced by European settlers in the 19th Century. After a century of destructive ranching practices invasive grasses infest northwestern South Dakota.

The US Forest Service knew an advancing cold front would aid the clearing of foot-high grasses and mowed a fire break instead of using a disk to make a fire line. Snow showers ended the fire.

There were no injuries and the only structure lost was a derelict rural schoolhouse. Cost to We the People for managing the Pautre Fire was about $1 million. No livestock was lost and there was minimal damage to fences. 3,519 acres of federal and 7,160 acres of private property were cleared of invasive grasses.

DiSanto supports the actions of the sleeper cell of armed christianic militants holding a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon: a procedure known as "Bleeding the Beast."

    1. The double standard is the Republican way of life.

  2. In the Oregon situation two men are going to prison for burning 140 acres. In South Dakota the US is accepting no responsibility for starting and losing control resulting in 10000 acres burning. Justify that.

    1. The Forest Service has no financial or adjudicative responsibility for the Pautre Fire.

    2. Why not they set it and burned several guys out of their summer grass on their private ground.

    3. That's simply bullshit. It's greener today than in the last 100 years.

    4. They should at least owe them for one summers grazing.

    5. DiSanto's proposed legislation would do nothing but reinforce SDGOP's hypocrisy on federal dependency.

  3. And at the risk of making your head explode your ideals are probably closer to Lynne Disantos than they are to say....CAH.
