  1. Thanks Bob You just proved my point. Nothing is yours. You simply want a piece of someone else's pie, and you want to hire some bureaucrats to go get it for you. Nobody is asking for a cut of the wild game you take off public property. Nobody wants a piece of the bottles or cactuses you have collected and nobody has insisted that you go clean up the broken pieces of glass from the bottles you shot up out there in the NM outback although I think that would be a good idea.
  2. Like all mining companies, they are paying claim fees. They also have employees who pay income taxes, property taxes and local and state sales taxes. The whole point of this thread is that some, including those proposing these royalties, think taking money away from one person and giving it to another (redistributing wealth) and creating layer upon layer of bureaucracy is how the US government should operate. Others think cutting taxes and regulations help businesses grow, innovate and create private sector jobs.

  6. I just read about this. I figure the stash never got buried or someone found it long ago but ya' never know.
  7. Happy Birthday Martin. Hope all is well.
  8. Satellite images reveal the destructive power of asteroids and meteorites smashing into the Earth's surface over millions of years in new atlas detailing hundreds of craters carved by extra-terrestrial collisions https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8926681/Satellite-images-craters-reveal-power-asteroids-meteorites-smashing-Earth.html
  9. I heard of a guy who pulled off I40 to take a pee and found a nice sunbaker.
  10. Ahem.... Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Tom Udall (D-N.M.), Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), Jeffrey Merkley (D-Ore.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Edward Markey (D-Mass.) wrote to the Energy and Natural Resources Committee leadership requesting a hearing on the Hardrock Mining and Reclamation Act to provide a forum for states, environmental groups, and industry to discuss mining reform. "The bill requires companies to pay royalties for the first time for the ability to extract mineral resources like gold, silver, and copper from
  11. It was just pointed out that the GPAA didn't renew 4 claims at Gold Basin. Quote: "The annual BLM fees on those 4 claims were $5,280. I'm not privy to the GPAA reasons but I imagine that has something to do with it." Question for royalty proponents: How much of a royalty do you suppose would be fair after paying all those BLM fees?
  12. And certain people (whose I'll names I won't mention) want royalties on top of BLM fees? That's called killing the golden goose is you ask me.
  13. The "Weaver River Bottoms" were an integral part of the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife. It is a huge shallow marsh that was full of vegetation. Sometime in the mid 1980's the vegetation disappeared and the vast majority of the ducks and geese went elsewhere. Some said chemicals killed the vegetation while others blamed the Army Corps of Engineers for raising the water level while the vegetation was frozen in ice. I haven't been back there in many years so I have no idea if the vegetation or the birds ever came back.
  14. I totally agree about waterfowl refuges. I used to pass shoot ducks and geese which congregated every fall at the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge. The water there stayed open after all the lakes in MN and WI froze up and huge flocks of Canadian geese and mallards would come off the refuge a couple times a day to feed in corn fields. There were a few places where they would fly up and over 400' bluffs at treetop level in huge V's. The lead duck or goose might be 100 yards away but as the rest of the flock came over the trees they got closer and closer until they were c
  15. I agree. The same holds true for all forest and desert access if you ask me. The sides seem to be drawn these days -- those who think the public should have access to public land and those who don't. I think that more often than not, those who don't want locals to have access live so far away they would never access it if they could.
  16. Thanks for the good fun Bryan. I replied to your message.
  17. No Bob. I was thrilled to know that Trump opened up millions of acres to hunting and fishing. Kellycodetectors seemed to agree. Don't mind me. You are doing great. Carry on with your lecture.
  18. Hey Bob, at least I admit I don't know everything. I'm still waiting for you to elaborate and put some meat on your statement... "In most cases the land owners who donated the lands to the public for the express purpose of a wildlife refuge." That tells us you know VOLUMES about this subject. Please enlighten us. We'll wait!
