9-5-18 Proper land management can protect the environment, economy and rule of law -dh

Our opinion:  Nationwide--including Alaska and California--national forest and park lands and land monuments should be physically and scientifically managed in a way that best supports sustained yield management.   Ironically, this scientific approach not only contributes to jobs and economic strength, but also best protects the environment when pursued in accordance with well established permitting regulations.  It also protects against erosion of the rule of law.   -dh The LA Times Inadvertently Admits Trump Is Right About What’s Causing California’s Massive Wildfires https://dailycaller.com/2018/09/02/la-times-trump-california-wildfires/ Adopting more active forest management policies such as [...]

8-8-18 Will Alaskans Let A CABAL Kill Their Economy?

Killing Alaska's Pioneering State Economy by Dave Harbour Here is a grassroots program designed to kill 49th state free enterprise.  This socialist feat is accomplished by creating an Enviro-Industrial-Governmental Cabal model with insufficient means of sustaining itself in the free market.  It reflects the same thinking that permits current Alaskan leadership to ignore prudent budgeting during a fiscal crisis while attempting to marry Alaska's future with Chinese Communist energy and finance companies in consummating an as yet infeasible LNG project.  We don't know whether to label such leadership "narcissistic", "naively well [...]
