Keep up the good work.

Default I can't believe

I can't believe any one of you would condone what I saw in the Black Hills a couple of weeks ago. My house is wood framed but I'm the second owner. I'm sure everyone of you folks that think that I'm wrong would raise holy helll if a park near you was razed of all its trees and vegetation. These national parks and forests belong to us all and we are their stewards for future generations. If you are the type that can't understand that or don't care then you are in the same camp that is the ruination of this beautiful country.

No imagination necessary. I camped next to it while visiting Sturgis. God only knows how many migratory bird nests get bull dozed during the nesting season. By the way, the congressman Janckloff should fry in prison.

Default Moron Janklow

A widely respected Indian rights advocate has called for a



congressional investigation of South Dakota's only House member,

William J. Janklow.



Hank Adams (Assiniboine-Sioux) wrote to House leaders on Jan. 7, asking

for "an inquiry into the moral Constitutional qualifications of William

Janklow of South Dakota to sit as a member of the U.S. House of

Representatives."



A member of the Frank's Landing Indian Community in Washington, Adams

was an architect of the treaty fishing rights victories and other key

policies. When Congress established the American Indian Policy Review

Commission in the mid-1970s, he was selected to chair its premiere task

force on treaties and trust responsibilities.





Adams requested that Speaker Dennis J. Hastert, R-Ill., Majority Leader

Thomas DeLay, R-Texas, and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., seat

Janklow in the 108th Congress, but only provisionally, pending an

inquiry. His request has not been acknowledged and the Republican

representative has been sworn in with the other members.



Janklow was state governor for the past 16 years and attorney general

for four, and began his career 30 years ago as a legal aid lawyer on

the Rosebud Sioux Reservation.



He clashes with most Indian advocates over his efforts to limit tribal

sovereignty and do away with tribal court and law enforcement



jurisdiction over non-Indians. He is not without Indian friends, most

notably Oglala actor Russell Means, who shares Janklow's Indian policy

views and whose felony conviction Janklow just pardoned.



Adams asked the House leaders for a qualifications inquiry into four

areas:



1. "Did Mr. Janklow rape or sexually assault Jancita Eagle Deer, a

minor and legal infant in his custody and care, on or about January 13,

1967, on the Rosebud Indian Reservation, South Dakota?"



2. "Has Mr. Janklow persistently misrepresented to the public the

nature of his offense against another minor female, as charged in



juvenile criminal proceedings against him in Moody County, South

Dakota, preceding his premature departure from high school and his

floater enlistment in the U.S. Marines?"



3. "What was the nature and complete record of actions of Mr. Janklow,

as state Attorney General - including police communications under his

custodial care and purview - on June 26, 1975, in Pierre, Hot Springs

and Oglala on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, South Dakota - and

under what varied claims of authority did he act? Did Mr. Janklow

subsequently abuse his office and records control to effectually deny

due process and equal protection of the law, as well as a fair trial

and justice itself, to a citizen of the United States: Leonard

Peltier?"





4. "Did Mr. Janklow, successively as Attorney General and as Governor

of South Dakota, derelictly fail in official duties for acting to

secure justice for a foreign national, Anna Mae Pictou Aquash, whose

murdered remains were found on February 24, 1976, in the state of South

Dakota - and whose murder is yet unprosecuted to date?"



Adams noted the existence of "previously withheld documents and

records" that should come under House jurisdiction "for a caring review

in adjudging Mr. Janklow's qualifications."



Independently, a law student at Catholic University in Washington has

launched a campaign for prosecution of Janklow. David J. Harris, a Yale



graduate in American Studies, grew up on the Rosebud Reservation and is

adopted into the extended family of the late Jancita Eagle Deer.



On Jan. 2, Harris wrote to U.S. Attorney General John D. Ashcroft,

suggesting that he "prosecute Mr. Janklow for the crime of assault with

intent to commit rape and carnal knowledge of a female under the age of

sixteen years and all crimes concordant."



He submitted "evidence relating to the alleged rape of Jancita Eagle

Deer by William Janklow on January 13, 1967, for which he was disbarred

in Rosebud Sioux Tribal Court on October 31, 1974 by Judge Mario

Gonzalez." Gonzalez (Oglala Lakota) now serves as Tribal Attorney for

the Oglala Sioux Tribe, whose Pine Ridge Reservation touches Rosebud.





"In his disbarment order of October 31, 1974," continued Harris, "Judge

Gonzalez writes that Ms. Jancita Eagle Deer Sheldahl testified under

obvious emotional difficulty that she had been raped by William

Janklow, and that he threatened her life with a gun. Portions of her

testimony were corroborated by her high school guidance counselor, her

foster parents, a rape examination and a BIA investigator." All that

leads Harris to believe that "we are well beyond the islet of

uncorroborated testimony of a ravished woman."



Earlier, Harris wrote to Nebraska Attorney General Don Stenberg, on

Dec. 23, 2002, "suggesting that an investigation into Jancita Eagle

Deer's death commence forthwith." She was "struck by an oncoming car



near Aurora, Nebraska, while outside of a vehicle on April 4, 1975 and

died. This was hundreds of miles away from where she lived, and only a

few months after she had testified in Rosebud Sioux Tribal Court that

she was raped at gunpoint by William Janklow."



Harris informed both Ashcroft and Stenberg that he has "additional

recently executed affidavits, which are stored in a bank vault and with

friends of mine in the media and legal academy and will be turned over

to your office, provided guarantees can be made by you for the

witnesses' safety."



Stenberg declined to investigate by letter of Dec. 31, 2002: "We are

concerned that you are attempting to use our office to instigate an



investigation based on rape allegations which were long ago thoroughly

discredited. Moreover, none of the materials which you provided to us

even begin to establish that any crime was committed in the State of

Nebraska by anyone."



Harris is seeking support from members of Congress for an investigation

based on the new evidence. He also has notified the Clerk of the

Supreme Court that Janklow was disbarred by the Rosebud Sioux Tribal

Court and, in accordance with the high court's rules for recognition of

any court of record's disbarment action, "should be suspended from

practicing before the Supreme Court of the United States."



Harris says he "will not be satisfied with anything short of federal



prosecution."



Adams says he wants Janklow "to know that he enters my Congress with

Jancita and Anna Mae seated with him - and that neither has pardoned

him at all or in any degree - nor have I. Of course, I don't have

authority for pardoning anyone, but I do have a right to petition the

leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives."



Suzan Shown Harjo, Cheyenne and Hodulgee Muscogee, is president of the

Morning Star Institute in Washington, D.C., and a columnist for Indian

Country Today.

Default Re: I can't believe

It is so typical of you partisan lefties to blame others for your own political crimes. Every administration in history has engaged in clear cutting whenever it has suited them politically. Heck, even the president one of the wilderness associations tried to get a permit to clearcut his own land in Montana when he needed the cash for a divorce settlement during Clinton's administration. As usual with liberals ( or conservatives) it's "do as I say, not as I do".



Some of the nicest forests in the world are owned by paper companies. Some of the worst are "managed" by the Fed. The libs under Clinton caused incredible disaster, like in New Mexico, with their idiot forest policies...policies all approved by the enviro-wacko crowd.



It's never as simple as it seems. But if it makes your life easier to believe the fiction "democrats good, republicans evil" then by all means continue to believe such bilge.

We do what the hell we want in this country and color it with economic development or national security or political correctness or freedom of speech or what-ever-your-perspective-is. Just take a look at the urban mess that is NYC. That used to be pretty a few hundred years back. As long as I got mine, go phuck yerself. The system will puke when it's had enough, then return itself to normal. We just think in too narrow of a time frame. Even the disgrace that is a copper mine will eventually erode away. Be outraged or not. It doesn't matter. Give up. Afterall, what you think is of no consequence when viewed in the life span of a mature tree. And that is a very short time, even if that tree is a Bristle Cone pine.

Default As usual your are an idiot. Here are the facts whacko

"Every administration in history has engaged in clear cutting whenever it has suited them politically." Bull shyt.

"Some of the nicest forests in the world are owned by paper companies. " You have been watching too much TV there in Utah. Which has tiny Forests. If you like trees planted in nice rows (convenient for harvesting) I guess you can call the these nice forests. Come to the Pacific NW and I'll show you.



"The libs under Clinton caused incredible disaster, like in New Mexico, with their idiot forest " Bull Shyt. A prescribed burn was started at the wrong time.

Your house is wood-framed but you're the second owner? I guess that lets you off the hook. I eat ground beef so I guess I'm not responsible for killing the cow!



PBS did a Frontline report a couple of years ago attempting to show all the deforestation in this country and what they ended up concluding (much to their disbelief) after studying 100 years of records, that we actually have more forest land now.



And since your buddy Daschle is king of SD why is that "environmental destruction" happening there?



Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Tom introduce some new, more restrictive timber policy and then exempt his own state from it?



Now start talking about motorcycles again and the multiple breasteses that you saw at Sturgis.
