    thought i am a texan, i kinda regret supporting bush....i only cared about the personality, but not much of their "smartness". gore is definately "smarter" than bush...

    as for the logging problem, i kinda agree with bush's idea. at the beginning of the hot season, maybe 1 in 5 trees could be cut down, so that if forest fires occur, they could be put out more easily. also, the other trees that hadnt been cut down, can grow to their maximum size, since the competition of the nutrients in the soil would be less. another idea could be instead of cutting down the trees, if possible, smaller/younger trees with less roots could be unearthed, and replanted in an area in need of reforestation. sounds kinda impossible, but still a good option.

    But the trees aren't what's causing the prolem. It's the underbrush building up from lack of fire. Everything has it's purpose including fire and I wish sometimes we'd just let everything be. Even though I don't even live up to that myself. It's hard. The reason that the underbrush built up here in CO. was because of the wealthy people building houses in the forests complaints of smoke when they did the controlled fires. It's horrible but it actually seems funny to me that they were complaining of smoke and made them stop the controlled fires and now they don't have houses anymore. Not to say taht I want their houses to be gone or for them to suffer, but they got what they were asking for. I think that Bush isn't helping with the logging. That's not the answer in my opinion. I think there should be controlled fires. That's how the earth has been doing it for millions of years and if were gonna insist on doing something we should at least follow in the earths' example.

    I feel sorry for the Forest Service people. They are damned if they do and damned if they don't. People chew them out for smoking up the air with control burns and then it's all their fault for not doing something when a wildfire comes through and burns down their homes [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] .

    When will people learn, democracy doesnt work.[/QUOTE]

    Well along time ago America decided that democracy was not "working anymore" and changed to a republic democracy. This means that someone represents other people, and that every person votes to elect officials, but obviously the entire US population cannot sit on Capitol Hill and vote on every law. So we have representatives. And yes democracy does work quite well, as do many forms of government, but I think democracies and republic democracies do the best (in my opinion of course) of representing and attempting to be a manifestation of the people's will. So. What do you think besides "democracy sucks" ?

    I was just kidding. I believe that democracy is the best for of gavernment to keep a country stable with a fair rate of growth. I was just commenting on yall arguing over logging. Not everyone is going to be happy with another persons ideas. As for logging, it is a needed part of our economy and we cant just stop. Although it is greatly destroying our enviroment. For our economy to grow we need more logging. 180,000 acres isnt as much as you might think it is and I agree with Bush. If they are fire prone then I say cut them down. They might not burn this year or the next or the next, but while people are waiting to see whether they are going to burn then the trees can be put to use. Bush doesnt have to be to awful smart to do his job. He is given a couple options, all of which are ok to a certain extent and he picks one to support. I do feel that there is a better way, but I think for the momment logging is going to have to do.

    Unfortunitly bush is just blowing smoke [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] . There is not much he can do ( or even cares to do). There is so much litigation involving logging that nothing will be settled for a while. My opinion, some logging is beneficial, it opens up meadows where wildlife live. I just wish they would leave what old growth we have left alone. On a sad note, the biscuit fire in S.W. Oregon was Darlingtonia habitat, I have herd little on this subject but I'm sure many plants were destroyed as well.

    Many CPs benefit from having their habitat burned periodically to keep the brush, trees, and grasses down so the can get more light.
    The fire in S.W. Oregon could help CPs by burning back the brush, trees, and grasses that would otherwise shade them out. While most of the plants will suffer damage to the leaves and parts above ground, the seeds, rhizomes and growth points that are close to or slightly beneath the surface usually come through unharmed.
