Railroad bill needs your attention
From what I understand one senator is holding up the bill? What a mockery of our legal system. Most likely millions of outdoor enthusiasts support AB 876 and for the most part, one entity, the railroad, which as far as I know the railroad doesn't check their name in the ballot box, opposes it. We can see who some politicians cares about.
There are so many wrongs with this entire situation, which have probably been already covered so I won't get into them. I will say that the very same group of politicians, whom I have voted for some of them in the past, are the same ones that are always proposing "freedoms" of other sorts. Where's the average Joe's "freedom" on this one? I guess they've gotten bold enough where they're not even trying to pull the wool over our eyes.
It seems the tactic for now it to just ignore us while they have the majority. I can't imagine someday telling my grandkids, "Look over there we use to be able to cross the tracks and fish there."
I know how I'm voting next round.
don't let facts get in the way of their points man! walking across the tracks to go fishing is like me going to dittos house and using his swimming pool without permission! i mean what is the difference here? (sarcasm)
what? you mean you can't wade threw a marsh, then swim the entire way across lake onalaska, or get in the black river and swim upstream through the roaring current of the spillway to fish there? how lazy of you
Not sure how to respond to the issue about going on land to cross a river obstruction. Never really thought of it to be honest.
I'm sure way back when the RR's were given the land there were plenty of farmers also getting land for free or next to nothing. That doesn't matter though because the land was given to the RR's with the agreement that they would never have to pay taxes on it. This is the way that the government was able to expand the country, without giving land away to the RRs the country would not be what it is today. Out west the RR was given land a lot more land per mile of track than they were in Wisconsin and it was given in a checker board pattern, if you think you have issues with the RR do some research on BLM and RR lands out west.
