For Big Oil There Is No Government Shutdown

Strange rule of law that only apply to people like you and me. This is a report from Center for Biological Diversity....
Because of Congress' inability to pass a budget, the US government has been shut down since Oct. 1. Federal government employees are going without salary. Government services have slowed to a stop, and public recreational spaces are closed for business. But wait, while public lands are closed to the public, landowners and corporations still have free rein to graze, mine, log, and drill for oil and gas there - meaning to continue to destroy the land for their greed.

Americans who who have traveled thousands of miles to hike and camp in public lands are being turned away from the Grand Canyon, Arches National Park, and other national monuments and parks across the country. But for the oil and gas industry, business as usual goes on without a hiccup.
Even more alarmingly, the shutdown has sent everyone in charge of enforcing the rules that protect our lands and wildlife home without pay.
It doesn't matter you are from which part of the world. We want to keep this earth as green as possible. Take action now with Rep. Grijalva to close public lands to fossil fuel companies during the government shutdown. Do your part goto this LINK
