Fight Is ON: Utah Issues Dec 31 Deadline to Feds Over Lands

The national government of Canada is cooperating in good faith and has transferred lands, water and resources to its provinces and territories -- but NOT the United States.  With all that's going on in the world and the economy, shouldn't the federal government focus on doing well those things that only it can do -- like world peace and a sound monetary system? Why won't the federal government honor the very same statehood terms to Utah and the Western states to transfer the public lands that it already honored with all States east of Colorado so that these lands can be managed by those whose lives and livelihoods most depend upon the wise stewardship of the lands?

Word of our federal government's blatantly unequal, discriminatory treatment of the western states is getting out internationally.  Watch and share this RT News Report and, if you are ready to take a stand, Sign & Share this Petition.
