Scenic lands tagged for sale

The U.S. Forest Service is proposing to auction scenic Colorado lands overlooking Rocky Mountain National Park and along the Mount Evans Highway to raise money for rural schools in other states.

What in the world is wrong with this Bush administration? Do they not value our national forests? I believe that we should get in contact with our senators and representatives and express our complete displeasure with this stupidity/idiocy.

Our senators and representatives would be the ones who would have to pass such a plan, so they would certainly be the ones to contact with criticism. Government is very greedy and they will never be convinced they have enough. Until pressure is put upon government at all levels to quit non-essential spending (including money they spend for their own benefit), they'll sell anything.
