Proposed national park is unnecessary, the land is undeserving

If resources that attract people are there, people will come naturally and a park would serve the purpose of managing use and protecting the resource. This proposal does not fit the model. Labelling an area as a national park will attract visitors. Unfortunately, once they visit, they will leave saying, “This is it? No use coming back.” There goes the economic model.

A proposed national park for Maine would provide an economic boost to the manufacturers and retailers of bug spray. Both people wanting to visit the “park” would buy the bug juice.

Roxanne Quimby Sneaky Snake About Land Access and Anti-Hunting

According to V. Paul Reynolds’ article in the Sun Journal today, Roxanne Quimby, the queen of hunting and property ownership hate (except when she owns it), has decided she is going to open some 40,000 acres of her stingy land holdings to hunting this fall. In addition, her son, Lucas St. Clair, is saying that Quimby and her Elliotsville Plantation company will not support the Human Society of the United States’ and Wildlife Alliance of Maine’s efforts to ban bear hunting via citizen initiative in 2014. This can only be the classic operation of a sneaky snake willing to make a couple of sacrifices in the short term to gain big accomplishments in the long. Don’t be fooled.

Quimby has publicly stated that nobody should own land and she hates hunting. Of course on the land ownership question she is a bundle of hypocritical contradictions, using corporate earned money to buy up large sums of land, use that land and its resources to further pad her coffers, while trying to convince the rest of the world they don’t deserve to have the same.

Roxanne Quimby was appointed to the board of the National Park Service, a puppet entity of the United Nations, i.e. UNESCO, World Heritage Convention, Agenda 21, and she is determined to get a national park in Maine come hell or high water. Her latest shenanigans, as related by Reynolds’ article, should only be interpreted as a temporary “compromise” in order to gain enough control to sever the arteries of the Maine people.

If Quimby opens 40,000 acres of land to hunting this fall, sportsmen should take full advantage because it won’t be open for long. In addition, should Elliotsville Plantation decide to not support the anti bear hunting referendum (don’t look for them to fight against it) the lack of money and support for HSUS may help the citizens to defeat the animal rights nuts. But all of this is just temporary.

As the old saying goes, it’s difficult to changed the stripes on a zebra.
