I'm still on the mailing list of Paul Gosar, my former Congressman, who would be classified as a "Tea Party" politician.
Needless to say, we don't agree about many topics.
His most recent newsletter expressed concerns about Sally Jewel, who is President Obama's nominee to replace Ken Salazar as the head
of the Department of the Interior.
A quick check of her bio revealed the fact that she is a Democrat, but she also was involved wit the oil and gas industry, and currently is the chief executive office of REI, the outdoor sports retail organization.
Gosar's concerns appear to hinge on the fact that Ken Salazar announced Order No. 3310 (the "Wild Lands" order) outside REI's flagship store in Denver.
Reading between the lines, it appears that the real objection he has is that timber, mining (including uranium), and gas and oil companies won't be free to rape and pillage lands to the extent that those activities are currently done on private land.
Any comments about Ms. Jewel?
