Tipton bill would reverse progress 
on regulating BLM leasing policies

It would not be characteristic of Congressman Scott Tipton to leave Washington before Christmas without leaving a gift for big oil. It’s no surprise, then, that with token bipartisan…

I’ve but one question. Other than Grant do the majority of Tipton’s constituents support these bills?

Just another indication of a government broken and a columnist utilizing his pulpit for political rather than positive information.

My only question here is with our need for gas in AMERICA. Our desire for it. Exactly what would Grant offer as an compromise? Certainly, and normally, if a TRUE problem exists it is necessary to offer another position.

Those damned republicans. Just whom did obamahusseincare placate? Government is broken and DOES NOT work Bill. Why not begin helping AMERICANS as opposed to the democrat party. This is just another of your tirade rants at “the party” as opposed to the “Coloradan” or better yet the “American.” Therefor since, in your eyes Mr Tipton is wrong, just exactly, what should be done? Why is this bad for Colorado? Just why in hell is it possible for obama to block anything on Native American Lands? Apparently that executive order democrap thinks he HAS that power. Are you kidding me?

No, indeed, Bill you, nor the democraps, nor hussein, nor Tipton, nor, nor, nor have the only or best answer.

The Wilderness Society? Sure has connotations of the tree huggers society. Remember when they raised hell about cutting all the dead and dying trees? Trees that could be used for positive purposes? Remember? We placated their sorry rears and then what happened? FIRE FIRE FIRE FIRE. Indeed be careful for what you wish.
By the by so if your all knowing U.S. Senate did NOT bring the bills to “the floor” and have no good reason to do so this year. What exactly is your beef? Trying to prop up the democrap controlled senate? Trying to tear down Tipton? Why do you NOT just TITLE your articles for what they are? I can think of many more catching titles for this one. Can you?

Natural gas is glutted on the market, hundreds of thousands of acres are already under lease but not being developed as NatGas is not a money maker—wet gas and shale oil (no, not oil shale) is.  Making NatGas marketable requires some innovation—like switching vehicle fleets as the Sentinel editorial notes; it also involves shipping it off to China and Asia, which will make US consumer prices go up.  Finally, public land lease and royalty rates were set in the 1920s and 1980s respectively.

1920’s and 1080’s. It just may be time to have another look. So just EXACTLY what is the perceived problem with Mr. Tipton’s vote? IE Who gets hurt? What gets hurt? Who suffers? Who gains?

I’d really like to see Mr.Grants reaction if we suddenly had a resurgence in nuclear power plants. After all, they emit the least amount of “greenhouse gases” of all energy generating methods.
