    Right you are.  Except it's also about mining.  Especially in Nevada, where the landscape in the northern part of the state is being ripped to shreds by the New Gold Rush.
    •  True, that (4.00)
      Here in Colorado, the price of further extraction hasn't yet been overrun by the price of gold.  Molybdenum, yes; gold and silver, no.  So while Nevada's Congresscritter wants his gold extraction, Allard has no such competing interests driving him.

      If Pombo had really had his way, we'd be selling off land inside Rocky Mountain National Park, too, along with Arches and Canyonlands in Utah (big old Uranium claim area).  The man has no shame, and he needs to go in 2006; we should make his seat a target and make sure his opponent is well-trained and well-funded.

      Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. - William Pitt
