No People can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand, which conducts the Affairs of men more than the People of the United States.

That will be fine with some eco-folks. To them, these places are only beautiful and valuable if they are people free.
I'm tired of eco-folks, just let us drill some oil for cryin out loud!!
What's this?Three straight un-plagiarized posts?
If we had paid attention to the first oil crisis in the 1970's and started a serious program of conservation, alternative fuels and restructuring our transportation system, people could still afford to go to Utah's beautiful parks. But no, we elected people who were more interested in the short-term profits of the oil companies and other corporate interests than in the long-term health of the American economy. It is too bad that we can't just drill our way out of this problem, but that is simply impossible.
DL, your "we elected people who were more interested in the short-term profits of the oil companies" is just plain wrong. The oil companies got screwed during the 80's. Foreign oil was so cheap our own drilling enterprises got the shaft.Oh, and Carter's response to the 70's oil crisis included a lot more drilling, and a huge shift to coal.
Reach, you are absolutely 100% correct.Holly, ditto.
