Obama Administration Looking to Set Aside Millions of Acres for Habitat Preservation - Hot Air - This is exactly the kind of thing I was talking about yesterday: The federal government already manages nearly one third of the surface area of the United States, but inefficient federal bureaucrats, dependent on DC for their funding and often motivated by political externalities, do not make the best environmental stewards — far from it. We don’t have the money to spare to effectively manage our federal estate as it is, but heck, by all means, let’s just keep adding to it and expanding federal control, why don’t we? A sweeping new Obama administration strategy to protect plants, fish and animals from the hazards of global warming would require the government to set aside millions of acres of land to preserve threatened habitat. “More than millions of acres across the landscape will be required,” said U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe. “The lands will be protected by easement, by land acquisitions, by local, by land trusts, by state agencies, by federal agencies,” he told reporters in releasing a 120-page National Fish, Wildlife and Plants Climate Adaptation Strategy, in the works for four years. “We’re doing it for wildlife preservation and we’re thinking about climate,” he added. Under Obama, 4.5 million acres in 10 national wildlife refuges have already been set aside in part to ease the pressure of global warming on plants, fish and animals, said Ashe.  Read more.........

PLEASE WATCH THIS VIDEO, IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM BY GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS.
(2) Victims of Government - Steve's Story - Just one of many to come, per Ron Johnson’s new Victims of Government Project. The series will perform oversight of the cost and impact of unnecessary, ineffective, and excessive federal regulations. Johnson also invited anyone who has been dealing with excess regulation to submit their stories on his Senate website. “The root cause of our economic and fiscal problems is the size, the scope, and the cost of government – all the rules, all the regulations, and all the government intrusion into our lives,” Johnson said. “The Victims of Government series is designed to demonstrate that – in a very personal and powerful way. Over-regulation consumes massive amounts of the people’s money, too often lacks common sense, has no heart, costs jobs and economic growth.” The good news? Johnson’s drawing needed attention to a series of injustices. The bad news? If he’s intent on sticking with this once ObamaCare gets rolling, he’ll have to quit the Senate to handle the volume of complaints. Read more.......... (47,585 views).


(3) 3 Reasons the U.N.'s Arms Treaty is Useless - Heritage Foundation - It sounds nice to say there could be a treaty that would make all nations responsible when it comes to their arms exports. Of course, it’s also impossible. The latest draft of the U.N.’s Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), which would regulate imports and exports of arms around the world, failed on Friday after a two-week negotiating conference. Many media reports have said that Iran, North Korea, and Syria were the reasons the treaty failed. But Heritage senior research fellow Ted Bromund was at the conference and reported that, in reality, 29 nations voiced opposition. “All in all, about one in five of the nations at the conference did not back the treaty,” Bromund said. And it’s not over yet—the U.N. General Assembly is still likely to vote the treaty into being this week. Unfortunately, the U.S. is likely to vote for it in the Assembly. The U.S. has no business validating such a meaningless document. The ATT is useless for many reasons, including: Read more.........

4) Rasmussen Poll: 77% Believe Jesus was Resurrected - The Blaze - A Rasmussen poll conducted last year, but re-circulating the blogosphere this Easter weekend affirms Christianity’s place in U.S. life. Of the 1,000 American adults surveyed, 86 percent believe Jesus Christ walked the Earth 2,000 years ago and 77 percent believe he was resurrected. Only seven percent do not share this belief. The survey also included questions pertaining to how the Easter holiday is celebrated in individual’s respective homes.  Read more......
