    If it was off shore or concerned a foreign business, he'd figure it out. If he can't make a buck off dissolving it, well, then, its just beyond his understanding.

    He must have seen some local poll that suggests that is good idea. The next state that may care about it he will sing a different tune.

    Like most of the silver spoon set, he has no inkling of his connection to the land. Food is what you find in supermarkets, and clean water is what you get out of a fawcet.

    Mitt needs a lifelike robot, programmed with sensible answers. Most couldn't tell the difference between him and the robot.

    For the same reason that it owns nearly that much of Oregon. Empty lands that had to be protected against use that damaged it and the people that depend on it. Much of this land is easily damaged, much is watersheds for the areas that are usable for agriculture and urban areas.
