4. I think we are going to hear much more of this, as the Rethugs...
use our national debt as an excuse to exploit or sell our national and natural resources. Watching a hearing on C-Span, a couple of months ago, I heard Pete Sessions casually comment on how "we need to look at selling some of our resources."

Communities that need jobs are sitting ducks for timber and mining corporations. Wilderness in northern MN is under attack right now by a multi-national mining firm.

We all need to stay alert for this sort of thing. Thanks for posting that article.
