For purple mountain majesties

Those who would “liberate” our public lands from the specter of federal ownership often bemoan the draconian, near soviet-style impingement of personal freedom that comes with Forest Service management.

The damn feds think they can tell us where we can ride our OHVs. They restrict where we can drill, dig, clear-cut or dump our trash. And — perhaps the most un-American of their sacrileges — no fireworks!

I don’t know, seems like the fire works just great to me.

Happy Independence Day! May yours be spent enjoying our public lands — the fruit and foundation of our most genuine freedoms!
