The Bizzaro World Appointment of William Pendley
The fox is in the henhouse
That's the only way to describe the appointment of William Pendley by the Trump administration to lead the Bureau of Land Management.
An extreme W. T. F. ?
You see, Pendley is a vocal proponent of the government selling all the public lands in the west. His interpretation of the constitution gives him the belief that only states should be able to own land and the federal government shouldnt.
This guy is no ally to public land users. This is no supporter of hunters, backpackers, mt. bikers, river runners and fisherman. He's not in the corner of the ability of parking your truck on the road and hiking for miles because that's the right of every public land user in the country.
This guy is special interest through and through
Seeing this appointment is another indication that we are living in the bizzaro world of The Trump administration. Why in the world would you appoint someone to this post who's stated goal or aspiration is dismantlement?
I'll let you decide that one.
It's time to contact your elected officials and tell them to reject this appointment. It's still the good ol' USA and we have the power of the collective voice to express opposition.
Be heard ladies and gents...be heard.
