    Tom Turner is just another politically correct ObamaBot. If Obama told Tom to jump, Tom would scream “How high.” Like the KGB of the 60’s, the NEW LEFT is on the march to destroy America from the top-down.

      Actually, what you are seeing is the fall out of all those spotted owl protests by the environmentalists in the 80’s and 90’s. I don’t know if you were around then, but you can thank the “granola eaters” , who probably complain the loudest about crime, for what has happened.

      Look around, all that federal land that no longer gets harvested comes at a cost to Lane County. That is why they ask for payments from the government to make up the lack of timber receipts.

      Only problem is, our government is broke, lane county refuses to address this lack of timber money in its budget, instead holding hostage tax payers who are being victimized by LAME county commissioners.

      The ironic thing about the spotted owl is: it has a new enemy now, its not people, its another owl that is killing the spotted owl and taking over its habitat. And the government wants to shoot them. The barred owl is now in the gun sights of our government.

      Where are the protesters now?
