"Our actions today advance the Bush administration's commitment to cooperative conserving roadless areas," Agriculture Secretary Ann Veneman said in announcing the plan in the Idaho Capitol Rotunda.

It almost sounds as if she's protecting the environment, doesn't it?

But if you look closer at the sentence, you'll find...that it makes no sense whatsoever. Except in as much as it's meant to sound like she's protecting something.

Actually, what she's doing is giving up Federal Protection of much of our (previously) unspoiled precious National Forests so that Logging Companies can build roads in them to log some more! Cool, huh? George W. Bush is one great "President"! Let's have some more!

The whole story is here...January 20th, 2005 cannot come around quick enough.
