Ron, there is nothing that anyone can tell you that you would listen to & believe, unless it fits within the narrow toilet-paper-tube view of the world that you hold.

Timber sales do not equate to healthy forests.
Look to Germany for proper timber management.


We manage timber like we did Bison.

Ken, I have yet to see a crew thin the larger, healthy trees. And I've seen quite a bit of thinning around my parts. Are you trying to tell me you've been on thinning crews where they log the healthy trees? Hmmm, I smell a rat.

I'm saying that cutting trees is cutting trees is cutting trees.......also called logging.

Arbitrarily saying that cutting trees down, because they are not the dominant trees, is not logging, is absurd.

Ron, I'm not against thinning forests. I'm against the give-away of our national resources to corporations for pennies on the dollar.


And holy cow. I guess I need to turn to Fox News for all my knowledge. Google and the internet is out, and so are any MSM other than the all-knowledgeable Fox.


Edit: Ken, I suppose we need to distinguish between "timber harvest" and thinning...

Ron, I don't care how much 'experience' you have in silviculture...I wouldn't want you managing the forest where I live.

BTW...it's spelled 'silviculture', genius.

Well Apogee, i will ALWAYS spell it like that for MY own reasons. And too bad about you not wanting me to thin your forests. I did some MARVELOUS work around blue lakes road et al..The pine beetle epedemic we had there back in the 80s is NO longer thanks to me, and my EA and treatment following, while providing wood to thousands of permitees and completely paid for my position and then some. In short it was a WORKING system of govt.

Normally I think Ron just doesn't care enough about us to actually spell-check his posts.


But here, I'm thinking he actually does care. He's offering us all beers!

"Normally I think Ron just doesn't care enough about us to actually spell-check his posts."

You'd think that a self-proclaimed forest management expert like Ron would know how to spell 'silviculture', or at least give enough of a sh#t to try to spell it correctly.

Not Ron, though. He is obviously as knowledgeable in these matters as he is in the rest of the yellow custard he regularly spews from his arse.

Apogee im not SLEF PROCLAIMED bud, i have AWARDS of MERIT for my timber expertise. An average 30 yr career type might have one or two of those- i had five in fifteen years. Three of which were from my TIMBER work. I was in on the most pivotal and successful cuts ever accomplished in the Toiyabe NF. But NEVER mind all that- because you guys cut and paste from google and knew all of this already..

And since you are so smart about logging, just give me STEP ONE for a timber sale to be.

Hey Ron and Ken. If you two have first-hand experience of the Healthy Forest Act actually working, that's great news.

When it was passed, the negative press indicated how the HFA was a give-away to the timber industry. It's not uncommon for republican administrations to give corporations the ability to purchase our nationally owned resources at barn-burner rates.

"i have AWARDS of MERIT for my timber expertise"

Pardon me if I remain completely unconvinced, Ron. Anyone who has received professional recognition in their areas of specialty generally know the proper spelling of that profession (or something remotely similar, as opposed to 'civiculture').

This is old, but still holds true
Subject: To be a republican you need to believe:

1. Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton.

2. Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad
guy when Bush's Daddy made war on him, a good guy when
Cheney did business with him, and a bad guy when Bush
needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.

3. Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is Communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony.

4. The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our highest national priority is enforcing U.N. resolutions against Iraq.

5. A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multinational drug corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation.

6. The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches, while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.

7. If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.

8. A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our longtime allies, then demand their cooperation and money.

9. Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy, but providing health care to all Americans is socialism. HMO's and insurance companies have the best interests of the public at heart.

10. Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools.

11. A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense, but a president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

12. Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

13. The public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades, but George Bush's driving record is none of our business.

14. Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness and you need our prayers for your recovery.

15. Supporting "Executive Privilege" for every Republican ever born, who will be born or who might be born (in perpetuity.)

16. What Bill Clinton did in the 1960's is of vital national interest, but what Bush did four years ago is irrelevant.

17. Support for hunters who shoot their friends and blame them for wearing orange vests similar to those worn by the quail.

Gosh Ron, are you trying to hurt somebody's feelings? Or are you just on the defensive because you've yet to learn how to research things on the internet?


Damn, these facts you guys keep posting, they're Killing me!!



BTW, how is it you know how many troupes have died in Afghanistan during Obama's term? Oh right, you must sit in on the briefings in DC ...
