Perhaps you should spend your energy defending those that need defending. I'm sure if I've slandered Mr. Whitney in any way, he can afford an attorney and doesn't need your services pro bono.

Yeah...

I don't get it. Seems just like pipe dreaming. Do you have the actual ideas on how this could work in reality? Do you have the means to purchase the property and make it happen?

While I love BREIA and their facilities, they are not immune to issues with the public. One of their huts was burned down a few years back. They rebuilt, but if that was on state land John Q....

It's really odd to me so many people on this forum voice this opinion, like you do, but then don't think twice...
