Agriculture chief's priority: avoid jail
By MATTHEW DALY, Associated Press Writer 50 minutes ago
WASHINGTON - He overhauled federal forest policy to cut more trees — and became a lightning rod for environmentalists who say he is intent on logging every tree in his reach.
After nearly seven years in office, Agriculture Undersecretary Mark Rey still has a long to-do list. Near the top: Persuade a federal judge to keep him out of jail.
Rey, a former timber industry lobbyist who has directed U.S. forest policy since 2001, also wants to set up state rules making it easier to build roads in remote national forests and restore overgrown, unhealthy forests by clearing them of small trees and debris that can stoke wildfires. And he wants to streamline cumbersome regulations that can paralyze actions on public lands.
A Montana judge, accusing Rey of deliberately skirting the law so the Forest Service can keep fighting wildfires with a flame retardant that kills fish, has threatened to put him behind bars. . .
Rey's signature accomplishment — passage of the 2003 Healthy Forests Restoration Act —
Here's an example of what scum sucking pieces of shit the bush administration has appointed. This little fuck wad has gutted forestry policy in the United States. He has done NOTHING to keep forests healthy and EVERYTHING he possibly could to make it easier for logging companies to harvest.
This little corpo-fascist dick sucker is nothing more than a member of the corporate establishment appointed by the corpo-fascist administration to see to the needs of the corporate royalists. Tell me how that's not corpo-fascism!
EVERY facet of our goverment is filled with these corporate lackeys. . . defense, agriculture, education, you name it, if the government does it, the corpo-fascists have installed their own lackeys to take advantage of any spending being done.
THIS is how they have pillaged our national resources. Every chance they get they have used government agencies as funnels for government funds and in the process, raised funding where they could garner the most and lowered it where it payed them less. What ype of govenment would YOU call this?
Yea, this little piece of shit belongs in jail, but no less than the corporate royalists who put him there. We get pissed off at MoronMonkeyBoy Bush the Chimp and know that he belongs in a cold dark dank jail cell for the rest of his pitiful life, but no less so do the people who are really above him and put him where he is. Let's face it, MonkeyBoy and his cronies are nothing but trained monkeys who do the bidding of their corporate sponsors.
Too bad the democrats are not much better, otherwise we'd have seen many of them in jail cells by now including the low life recreant piece of shit who currently holds the office of president.
"When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."
