Rammed through by Reid and Pelosi and signed into law yesterday, the whopping Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009 is a huge stinker all Obama’s own.
(Page 2 of 2)
There already is talk of a bipartisan bill to change some provisions, particularly the criminal penalties in the paleontology section. Conyers wrote in his letter that he wanted “refinements” to the criminal provisions “as soon as practicable in subsequent legislation.” He may get some bipartisan help, and this would be all to the good. But members should also ask themselves, isn’t the correct way to rid a bill of bad provisions to debate those provisions before the bill is passed?
In an interesting side note, the Washington Times noted that President Obama did not — as promised as part of his “transparency” initiatives — wait five days to sign this bill so that the public could comment on the White House website. The bill had been posted on the site on Friday, and the signing was Monday, making not even three full days.
And in a way, it is a shame that the president didn’t wait two more days to sign this bill on this coming Wednesday. There is no day more appropriate than April Fool’s Day for this monstrosity!
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
