Protecting Land, Wildlife, Hunters, and our Constitutional Rights

Now, it may seem like a stretch to group all of these together, but in fact, it is all part of the same discussion.

Today I have become aware of a bill in the House of Representatives (HR-4289) the Colorado Wilderness Act of 2009, that threatens the ability of hunters and wildlife and habitat management people to access land, which could have detrimental impacts on the ecology of these forest areas (you can read more here: www.goodamericanpost.info).

Our land - the soil and water that we are completely dependent upon for how we live and how we eat - must be efficiently managed and utilized.  As we "progress" as a society, it is sometimes difficult to do that in a sustainable fashion.  However, it is our constitutional right to do what we please within and on our own property (as long as we are not hurting anyone else).

I watch farm and ranch-land being developed, and I see bills like this one coming up.  What we MUST do as a society, is become very educated on how land is used and how it must be managed.  We must also be aware of how dependent we are upon our land, and how we cannot allow bureaucratic red tape and principals negatively affect our free-market activities and long-term sustainability planning.
