We were a successful logging community before these educated idiots showed up, and we could be again. Just get rid of these idiots, who operate on donated money, (just like their President Oblama) never held a real job, wherein one gets up in the morning girds one's loins with the needed gear, and goes out to; dig a ditch, hammer some nails, pour cement, etc. Nope not them elitist folks, that sounds and seems SO plebian.
Has anyone seen a picture in the Historical society's archives that shows Deer Mountain totally denuded of trees. I think probably NOT, but yes folks it's there somewhere. I was browsing the archives one day and found the picture. I do wish I had saved it. My point being of course, is that Southeast Alaska is the perfect place for timber harvests. I do believe that 50 years is too short a time for re-harvest (as the Forest Circus told us we could do, when they let the pulp mill go into operation). That being said, let's get SE Alaska working again and stop all this contention from going on.
