Rep. Betty Olson (RWNJ-28) is a trip. She supports the Mormon Bundy clan and wants to end federal ownership of public lands.
Writing in the Black Hills Pioneer she says:
The federal government shouldn’t be allowed to own any land within a state’s boundaries unless it is granted permission by the legislature of that state, and so far, no state has given that permission to the federal government.Conditions are ripe for clearing invasive grasses from portions of the proposed Greater Missouri Basin National Wildlife Refuge as the National Weather Service offices in Aberdeen, Sioux Falls and Rapid City have alerted residents of South Dakota that Gaia is pissed.
Very dry and gusty conditions will occur this afternoon over south central South Dakota with low relative humidity and southerly winds as high as 30MPH creating critical fire weather conditions.
State climatologist Dennis Todey told this reporter that South Dakota had the 11th warmest winter in recorded history.
South Dakota Senator John Thune wants to gut the National Weather Service because it studies the Anthropocene then end environmental protection and start World War III by invading Iran.
South Dakota's GOP legislators and candidates have enjoyed millions in lobbyist benefits from the Kochs' contribution arm, the American Legislative Exchange Council; the state's junior senator was elected with cash from ALEC-backed National Federation of Independent Business.
Common Cause filed a supplement to its three-year-old tax whistleblower complaint against ALEC, and the two groups sent a joint letter to Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen demanding an investigation, collection of fines and back taxes, and the revocation of ALEC’s status as a tax-exempt charity.Read more here.
As a member of the Koch-backed American Legislative Exchange Council Betty Olson is toeing the line for her benefactors and for the radical right wing of her political party.
President Obama is in France this week preaching that “climate change” is the biggest threat facing the world right now. Obama declared Tuesday that his attending the climate change summit in Paris would be a “powerful rebuke” to terrorists. Really? How can Obama possibly think climate change is be more dangerous than Islamic terrorists that have murdered millions of Christians and people who are not Muslim? There has been no global warming in over 18 years, so they changed the term “global warming” to the more politically correct “climate change.” Our country is almost $19 trillion in debt and now Obama wants to increase our debt by giving $3 billion of your tax money to third-world countries in Asia and Africa to combat “climate change.” I don’t know about you, but I don’t think sending our hard-earned tax money to countries that hate us is a very good idea.Read it all here.
Little wonder welfare rancher Betty and her political party want to deny existence of the Anthropocene because it falls on Democrats to get anything done about it.
