The right-wing fanatics who would have the federal government hand over all public lands in Utah, Nevada, etc., remind me of the pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine. When would they like to hold the referendum on secession from the United States?
They should also think about telling Washington to get Hill Air Force Base and Dugway Proving Ground out of Utah. Have you ever seen the vistas from Hill AFB? That is prime real estate that Washington is preventing Utah from opening to development.
We do not need Washington's FAA personnel at Salt Lake International Airport, the Federal Reserve Bank in Salt Lake City, U.S. Immigration services, etc.
