BLM head visits Oregon, touts scheme to disregard Northwest Forest Plan

Jim Caswell, nominated by President Bush last summer to head the BLM, said the agency plans to disregard elements of the Northwest Forest Plan in its efforts to increase timber harvest on O&C BLM land under the Western Oregon Plan Revision (WOPR). From the Register-Guard: The new plan will end watershed assessments, surveys of plants and animals before an area is logged, and upper management review of decisions made at the regional level, Caswell said.

Lifetimes of damage in our state from the appointment of shit-for-brains people at the highest levels of government where our votes were "counted" by unverifiable machines, and when that didn't steal the elections -- unprecedented appointment by supreme court.
