What did Casperson receive under the table for this one? One hundred years of progess wiped out because of greed and a Senator who always puts his peronal interests and those of his financial cronies far ahead of those of his district. It is a shame that the Daily Press does not have the integrity to investigate this move for what it is. Oh I forgot that The DP only prints what flaters any Republican and those elements who want to takes us back to Robber Barons and the destructive policis of Reagan and Bush the Junior.

pp,

You’re an awful angry whelp

for having the temerity to suggest that our elected leaders are anything less than…

forthright,

truthful,

candid,

or

even

leaders, and

sober…

Don’t you know that it’s a rich man’s world?

Or, at least the politicians and lobbyist’s they can approach…

with…

gift’s of money.

to insure it remains...

a rich man's world!

For sure it's the rich man's fault and Casperson is taking money under the table! I mean, wouldn't it be great if the logging industry went bankrupt in the UP too! Who needs a job anyways?

The UP can never and will never be able to survive on tourism alone people. Casperson is basically fighting for one of the very few industries this area has left that employs people. Why can't some people understand this?

Nobody is advocating the destruction of the environment but good grief you can't protect it to the destruction of your own community either.

tom casperson may not have received money UNDER the table...

but he sure understands where

re-election campaign money comes from...

NOT,

from out of the pockets of people who can barely afford a ten dollar michigan state parks pass...

do you think?

Once the parks are un-manageable by the State of Michigan... (LOF)

who will have the money in their pockets to buy those park lands the State of Michigan will finally put on the Auction Block?

The non-rich,

the non-business types,

will be left to sing the song as it pertains to state parks:

DON'T FENCE ME OUT!

Frog, all the more reason to protect the logging industry and the jobs it creates up here. Without those jobs even less people will be able to fork over the $10. Adding more restrictions to the logging industry isn't going to save any jobs or state parks through the paychecks it creates.

I'm not sure how people can hate big business so much, do whatever it takes to run them down and then complain about not having a job and money to do or save the things they want.

Businesses employ and typically the bigger the business the bigger the pay. The higher up the ladder the bigger the pay. Like it or not that is the REAL world.

Who else, but

ONE OF THEIR KIND,

to lead the way with the first axe-swinging chop?

With too many regulation in place to prevent a

REPEAT of PAST unscrupulous and scurrilous conduct,

these same money takers are calling for the

PURE MICHIGAN

abolishment of any regulation

that would inhibit their taking for profit, of

OUR air,

OUR water, and

OUR ground

resources.

Voochie says:

“Nobody is advocating the destruction of the environment.”

Of course, the rich and big business

NEVER

OPENLY

even come close to calling for

THE DESTRUCTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT.

This is not about money or timber. This is about having unelected tree hugging bureaucrats taking away our access to millions of acres of land all under the guise of bio-diversity. For those that want to educate themselves check out the UN Convention on Biological Diversity. The USA has signed the treaty. Guess where the UN wants to close off land to ALL human activity. Our backyard.
