George Bush, John West, Scott Conroy, and Mark Rey all say Oregon forests belong to forest profiteers, not the american people. Oregon has become a sacrifice state, as they protect roadless forests in the East, they fast track logging Oregon's largest, most biodiverse, roadless area in the west.

We can get our wood products from the backyards of Scott Conroy and Mark Rey, level their back yards, not ours. Give the logging companies subsidies to pick through the garbage dumps where the wood ends up, instead of turning our pristine money making forests into trash heaps.
