This image is dedicated to the President of the United States of America, Mr. Barak Hussein Obama. OK, he might never get to see this image and he might never get to know about this dedication either. What a pity, he doesn’t know what he is missing. LOL!
So you might be wondering why I am doing this. The sitting president has on his desk a proposal to create a new national monument called Bear Ears. This national monument would give protection to 1.9 million acres and contains more than 100,000 cultural and archeological sites. At the moment this area is the most significant unprotected archeological area in the United States.
There is a fierce political battle going on. On one side republican Utah representatives Rob Bishop and Jason Chaffetz who are telling constituents for three years that they have been drafting legislation to protect the area, but they failed to introduce legislation containing specific boundaries and provisions. It became increasingly clear that the so-called negotiations that they aimed to run out the clock on the Obama administration’s ability to use the Antiquities Act to create a national monument.
On the other side of the rope is an unprecedented Inter-Tribal Coalition of 26 tribes and other environmentally interested organizations trying to get the President of the Untied States of America to sign the bill before he leaves the office beginning of next year.
Obama has previously showed vision and courage in using this authority, and creating a Bears Ears National Monument would be very much in that tradition and fully justified by the facts.
