Your comment on delusional, convoluted rants brought to mind Al Franken - If Sarah is the real voice of the right wing then Franken is the real voice of the left wing. We loonies haven't cornered the market on delusional and convoluted. It you want to do more research you can goggle Barney Frank. I would suite with Sarah anytime - probably much less drooling to deal with than Barney.

Does Sarah Palin really scare you liberals that much? Really, we conservatives aren't clamoring for her to run. She was too damaged by the mistake of running with the RINO McCain to ever have a chance at winning anyway.

2013 a banner year for voluntary conservation

1 year ago By Spencer Miller, USDA, NRCS Public Affairs

The 2013 numbers are in and they show the importance of voluntary, locally based conservation. Data just released by the Natural Resources Conservation Service shows how the USDA agency in partnership farmers and ranchers across the country conserved and protected natural resources on tens of millions of acres of America’s privately-owned lands last year.

Together, NRCS and conservation-minded farmers, ranchers and other partners:

  • Developed conservation plans for more than 43.8 million acres.    
  • Enrolled more than 279,000 acres into conservation easements, setting aside valuable wetlands, grasslands and farmlands. These landscapes help create wildlife habitat, clean air and water and lead to other environmental benefits.
  • Worked with producers in the Ogallala Aquifer region, the nation’s breadbasket, to implement conservation practices that use water wisely on more than 70,000 acres.
  • Improved habitat for at-risk wildlife. Two initiatives geared toward the lesser prairie chicken and sage grouse put conservation practices on more than 220,000 acres and 570,000 acres, respectively.
  • Assisted producers in the Mississippi River basin improve water quality, restore wetlands and improve wildlife habitat on more than 255,000 acres.
  • Helped landowners in 9 states improve sustainability and profitability of longleaf pine forests, an iconic forest of the Southeast, on more than 50,000 acres.
