As usual the "endless regulatory loop" has delayed or perhaps ended the opportunity for two very depressed counties to provide employment for its struggling families.

When will the Democrats and Environmentalis ts who run this state learn that there is no perfect world? There is risk in every endeavor but weighed against the potential to grow our stagnant economy, it seems like a pretty good trade.

The environmentalis ts have chased away the timber industry and have discouraged use of our natural resources in favor of owls and fish and salamanders. Not everyone can operate a (sustainable) food cart or make macramé plant holders for a living. The natural resources industry has elevated other states yet our "powers that be" ignore the real need for jobs and growth in favor of a flawed ideology.
