Tim DeChristopher: American hero

Monkeywrenching with a different twist. Tim DeChristopher just got in the middle and fucked up another land giveaway to the oil and gas folks.

An environmental activist tainted an auction of oil and gas drilling leases Friday by bidding up parcels of land by hundreds of thousands of dollars without any intention of paying for them, a federal official said.

The process was thrown into chaos and the bidding halted for a time before the auction was closed, with 116 parcels totaling 148,598 acres having sold for $7.2 million plus fees.


The the US Bureau of Land Management, more accurately known as the Cattle & Oil Barons' Welfare Agency, is in a pickle. And somewhere, Edward Abbey is smiling.

Makes for a joyful Winter Solstice. Happy day.

Good for him, but he is only putting off the inevitable.

After reading about the CEO bonuses, on our dime, I just couldn't help but smile a little at this one...who knows the outcome, but I needed a giggle!
