They're Taking Your Forests - ACT NOW !!!

Your future use of and access to all national forests nationwide could

well

be damaged or eliminated by a decision that will be made by a key Bush

Administration official with the Department of Agriculture in charge of

the

Forest Service late Friday.

It will only take five minutes of your time to click on a special e-mail

letter addressed to the key Congressmen and Mark Rey, Undersecretary of

Agriculture responsible for the Forest Service using the URL below.

Please

go immediately to the following site and click on your letter. It is so

easy and so important.

What's the problem?

The Forest Service is still infected with hundreds of policy makers left

over from the Clinton Administration. They support ecosystem

management.

That is a new word for getting rid of access, forestry, mining,

grazing,

and most recreation in our national forests. In other words, the

elimination of MULTIPLE USE and the use of PRIVATE PROPERTY.

Friday Mr. Rey must make a decision about whether or not to pull back

the

SIERRA NEVADA ECOSYSTEM PLAN of FRAMEWORK. It is referred to as the

Sierra Nevada Forest Plan Amendments (SNFPA).

This plan sets the stage and creates the environment to make it possible

for the Forest Service to get rid of multiple-use in all the national

forests in the Sierra Nevada in California and Nevada. It also

endangers

all private property owners in the Sierra Nevada. It attacks the water

supply for large areas of California and Nevada.

Why should you care if you don't live in California or Nevada?

If the Sierra Nevada Forest Plan Amendments (SNFPA) (ECOSYSTEM PLAN)

goes

through, it will set a precedent for the massive elimination of most

elements of multiple use AND private property in every national forest

throughout America.

There must be an uprising of all private property and multiple use

advocates by sending specially crafted e-mail letters Wednesday,

Thursday

and Friday. Congress and the Forest Service must be overwhelmed by your

response.

This is the Bush Administration. Can't I feel secure they will make the

right decision protecting private property and multiple use in our

national

forests?

NO!!!

This is the exact mistake private property and multiple-use and

recreation

advocates made when Ronald Reagan was elected. They made the same

mistake

when George Bush was elected in 1988. Now our side is making the same

mistake with the new Bush Administration. Because we keep making the

same

mistake, we keep losing.

Multiple use, recreation and private property advocates are taking the

Bush

Administration for granted.

That is a loser.

If we had not taken them for granted already, the plan would not be this

far along and we would have had a better chance at a good decision. It

is

critical that you rise up and bang on the brain of the new Bush

Administration. If you don't the other side will take your rights. It

is

natural for officials, no matter what their history, to go toward the

path

of least resistance.

Our side is sitting down. We're so tired of fighting the Clintonites

that

we just want to TRUST that the new Bush Administration will do the right

thing. It will not happen if we don't do our job. We must create the

clamor for what we want. You can be sure those people who want to get

rid

of multiple use, recreation and private property rights will be doing

their

job.

All of us must act quickly create the clamor for what you want or you

will

lose. Big time.

Don't lose your rights by sitting on your hands. Don't let a decision

that

on the surface affects California and Nevada undercut your rights and

future use of all national forests.

Call your Congressman and both Senators Wednesday, Thursday and Friday

to

urge them to ask the Bush Administration Agriculture Department

Officials

to pull back the Sierra Nevada Forest Plan Amendments (SNFPA) (ECOSYSTEM

PLAN) for review. The best thing is for them to overturn the plan.

If our side sits on its collective hands now, then we will all deserve

the

loss of rights and uses that will come with doing nothing.

That must not happen.

ACTION ITEMS:

-----1. Call your Congressman AND BOTH SENATORS. Every Congressman

and

Senator may be reached at the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 225-3121.

One

number gets them all. Tell them this plan will affect your national

forests.

There is a temporary FREE NUMBER of (800) 648-3516. That will also get

you every Congressman. This line may get busy. If so, use the

regular

switchboard number. Do not fail to make your calls.

-----2. Send the simple "point and click" letter at the following site

that are pre-addressed to the appropriate officials.

Hey, I heard that! I'm from California and I responded. Dont group me in with all those liberals. There are plenty of people here fighting for their freedoms, farmers ranchers, off road enthusiast's It's just that we are out numbered by the entertainment industry, the enviormentalists, and the uneducated or political ignorants. The liberal democrats have controlled congress for 40 years and the poor are still poor.

Done. I sent this to many sites. I bet our California friends don't reply to this :)

I have responded. I will say this... The greens in this state SUCK!! Not only do I disagree with most everything they say, but they actions are not even fair. In general.... If we all live here and you enjoy walking through a national forest and I enjoy riding my DRZ, then there should be a place for EACH to go to. They would rather kick us OUT. I am for being fair about use of our lands, if anyone should be complaining about lack of area to do our thing it should be US "ALL OFFROAD USERS".

One pissed off Cal. native.

PMAUST , I have responded. Our voices are heard.

I got a response from the Ford Motor Company concerning my letter to them of their support of the Audubon Society's public land lock up agenda. Here it is:

************************************************

Dear Mr. Hill

Thank you for your comments about Ford Motor Company Fund's grant to the National Audubon Society. We appreciate you taking the time to bring your concerns to our attention, and helping raise our awareness of different points of view.

First, I want to clarify that our grants in the environmental area concentrate on educational initiatives. Our intent with the National Audubon Society grant was meant in this spirit, and it was limited to environmental education and bird monitoring programs, however, we understand your concerns.

Ford Fund is the philanthropic arm of Ford Motor Company. Education is Ford Fund's top priority, and our environmental grants are only a small part of our overall giving. The Fund supports non-profit organizations in five priority areas – education; environment; public policy, health and welfare; civic affairs and community development, and arts and humanities.

Ford Motor Company values its customers, and we appreciate your loyalty. Your comments have raised our awareness, and are helpful as we evaluate future contributions.

Thank you for contacting us.

Sincerely,

Sandra E. Ulsh

************************************************

So if you think our response doesn't matter, think again. I only told Sandra about how strongly that I was opposed to the Audubon society's agenda and how that it might persuade my next Auto purchase. :)
