The place is changing this is Great Bear Glasier about 50 miles this side of Hyder Alaska The first time I was there in the seventies it felt like you could reach out and touch it. I had the thrill of watching it calve a great chunk into the lake, just before I had the thrill of one cold shower.
The first picture is from the early eighties and the second picture is about 2010

That's amazing. Our government seems to do a poor job of regulating much of anything.

That was not the origional intent of the federal govt.

In the words of Ronald Regan. The scariest words one can hear is "I'm from the federal government and I'm here to help"

It was not, but I also don't think the founding fathers took lawn mowers into consideration. I could be wrong.

I'm a big fan of the initial intention of the agrarian based economy that as established by our predecessors, but in order to comply with the needs of industrialization we need to continue to draw from their inspiration, but not be limited to the words they put on paper.

The idea of America is what made us so revolutionary, not necessarily the execution of those ideas.
