Activism at-large is wonderful. Glad to see it, friends.

But let us not forget to do the follow-the-money rubric on whyTF Rep. Broxson got behind this in the first place. $$$$

I smell payola

I also smell a short State-level political career for squire Broxson, despite his family name gravitas in SR county (Broxson Landing, anyone?)


Bye, bubba

Pay little for public land lease/oil rights and twist those drilling pipes into the surrounding private properties and get that oil too.

Win-win AGAIN for the corporations.

Broadbrush FAIL, friend. I'm one of those environmentalist whackjob types against the Drill and urging protection to access for bikes in Fed/State Gov lands. There are more of us than you might think, guy. The Ideology spread of the folks that signed that petition might surprise you. And i suspect that's precisely why Broxson caved.

Striving for good land stewardship for ALL land uses-- m/c's, jeeps, horse-folks, lumber folks, hunters, birders, pitcher plant fans, butterfly freaks, mushroom hunters, fishers, fern-sniffers, etc etc etc etc-- is what this is about.


Convenient grab-handle 'whackjob' terminology shit is going to work less and less.

I woke a lot to the local political diversity these last many days.
I used to always look upon Bronx Landing as something to smile about....

possibility we drill miles away offshore. we all drive cars love dirt bikes , use electricity, use synthetics, plastics did I mention motor sports. Its great to be hypocritical .( not to offend). drilling brings lots of jobs . Not walmart or tom thumb jobs . Jobs people can actually live and raise a family on. people want the trash man to pick up there garbage but dont want the dump around them. I guess its alright to use oil but not want it any where but in a bottle in the store .It makes no sense to me .we luv racing and riding but we want nothing to do with the process it takes to make the plastics, run the furnaces to form the engine parts or lubricate them. Not to mention the machinery to mine the ore to make the metal to make the engines . than the fuel to run the trucks to deliver to a port to run a ship to deliver the bike to another port, to get on some more trucks . then we get them break some shit order parts on our plastic computer. the part gets air delivered than truck delivered in plastic wrap. we finally buy fuel. drive our trucks trailers out to brox. f---in crash get a medavac by a helicopter that doesnt run on water. go to a hospital that every medical bad vial are made of plastics .even the plastic credit card you pay the bill with has touched oil in some way. There may be some solutions but as I see it there are always going to be hypocrites. Even f-in green piece drives to there meetings . and uses motorized vessels to protest . Sorry for rambling. but think about your life and all the oil everything in your life has touched .have a great day.
