National Park Service Wants the Land Jerry Patterson Wrongly Wants to Sell to His Texas Cronies

18 October 2007 at 10:31:17 AM

If YOU gave a land donation to a state with the provision that they should, IF they have to sell it, do so ONLY to Texas State Parks and Wildlife OR National Park Service, and then you found out that the person in charge of land in Texas was planning to sell the land to his rich pals, would YOU be hopping mad?  A little background.As jobsanger says:

Patterson is now trying to sell the land that Texas promised not to sell. He says that Texas cannot afford to fence the land to keep poachers out (although that hasn't seemed to be a problem for the last 16 years). He also told Texans that the National Park Service and the Parks and Wildlife Department did not want the land. He wants us to believe he has no choice but to sell the land to private interests.

But that is just NOT TRUE. The National Park Service does want the land. One would think that would give Patterson a way to get rid of the land he says Texas can't afford, and at the same time, allow Texas to keep its word to the donors. But that's not what Patterson wants. He wants to sell the land to private interests.

Why won't he sell to the National Park Service? Because they wouldn't allow hunting on the land. What!!! The same person who says we need to sell the land because we can't protect it from those who would kill the animals there, now says we can't sell the land to the National Park Service because they would protect it from those who would kill the animals there. He's either totally insane, or he's told so many lies he can't keep them straight anymore.
And I wonder, why is it that the Republicans in office have so little regard for parks, that everyone enjoys and see parcels of land as something to profit from (or to their pals a favor for? And why do people vote these people in?
