Implicitly, the CCC also led to a greater public awareness and appreciation of the outdoors

Aug. 19, 2014 The WA Parks Raw Deal? Recreation? and Tourism?
The Governor’s Blue Ribbon Task Force?
What was it that they were all constantly babbling about?
Public awareness and appreciation of the outdoors and improved physical condition?
Well, except for the lower element? Those families of the working poor and unemployed?
In addition, THE CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORPS (CCC) those poor and unemployed
Updated forest fire fighting methods, and built a network of service buildings, public roadways in remote areas, and planted nearly 3 billion trees to help reforest America
I repeat, IMPLICITLY, THE CCC ALSO LED TO A GREATER PUBLIC AWARENESS AND APPRECIATION OF THE OUTDOORS AND THE NATION’S NATURAL RESOURCES; and the continued need for a carefully planned, comprehensive national program for the protection and development of natural resources.
The first New Deal (1933–34)
What historians call the 3 R’S: RELIEF, RECOVERY, AND REFORM. that is relief for the UNEMPLOYED AND POOR; RECOVERY OF THE ECONOMY to normal levels; and reform of the financial system to prevent a repeat depression.
The Raw Deal Aug. 19, 2014
The WA Parks Raw Deal? Recreation? and Tourism?
The Governor’s Blue Ribbon Task Force?
FOR THE UNEMPLOYED AND POOR The cost of the Discovery Pass discourages the lower element?
SELECTIVELY prohibits use of WA State Parks by financial affordability to a specific social economic financial class?
The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a public work relief program
That operated from 1933 TO 1942 in the United states for Unemployed, Unmarried men from relief families, ages 18–25 as part the new deal. and provided unskilled manual labor jobs related to the conservation and development of natural resources in rural lands owned by federal, state and local governments.
The CCC was designed to provide jobs for young men, to relieve families who had difficulty finding jobs during the Great Depression in the United States while at the same time implementing a general natural resource conservation program in every state and territory.
In nine years 3 million young men participated in the CCC (my dad was one of them) which provided them with shelter, clothing, and food, together with a small wage of $30 a month ($25 of which had to be sent home to their families).
Check with your family, a member of YOUR FAMILY was very likely one of the POOR, UNEMPLOYED, MOSTLY UNSKILLED PEOPLE that participated in the rebuilding of America during the depression.
Between 1935 and 1943, the WPA provided almost eight million jobs. it tried to provide one paid job for all families in which the breadwinner suffered long-term unemployment.
(I am NOT endorsing unions)
ALMOST EVERY COMMUNITY IN THE UNITED STATES HAD A NEW PARK, bridge or school constructed by those poor and previously unemployed people.
New Deal agency employing millions of unemployed people (mostly unskilled men) to carry out public works projects, including the construction of public buildings and roads.
THE IRONY OF THESE DEALS, THE 1933-1943 DEPRESSION NEW AND THE 2014 RAW, is the incongruity between what actually happened and what might be expected to happen, especially when this disparity seems ABSURD or laughable.
That the very same type, social economic class of people, THE POOR, UNEMPLOYED AND UNSKILLED, between 1933-1943
Physically BUILT UP THE FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL PARKS, THE ROADS, SHELTERS, TRAILS AND PLANTED OVER 300 MILLION TREES TO REFOREST AMERICA, when, ALMOST EVERY COMMUNITY IN THE UNITED STATES HAD A NEW PARK, bridge or school that was constructed by poor and previously unemployed people.
IRONICALLY THOSE POOR AND UNEMPLOYED, UNSKILLED PEOPLE, OUR FOREFATHERS, WERE INVITED TO COME ON PUBLIC LAND,
THEY WERE HIRED TO, PAID TO, AND DID DO, THE WORK TO BUILD AND IMPROVE OUR PUBLIC ACCESS AND USE OF OUR FEDERAL AND STATE PARKS PUBLIC LAND IN AMERICA.
NOW? In 2014 shall “We The People” examine the WA Parks and ONP RAW DEALS?
OUR FOREFATHERS BUILT THE PARKS.
NOW? their descendents, AKA the lower element, the FAMILIES OF working poor and/or unemployed people, HAVE BEEN DENIED affordable PUBLIC ACCESS TO PUBLIC LAND, BECAUSE OF their low income and social status?
ACCESS Denied? BECAUSE OF THE PROHIBITIVE COST, arbitrarily? authoritarians? using their unlimited power to IMPOSE FEDERAL, ONP AND WA STATE PARKS fees and passes?
Is this Really America?
DISCRIMINATION by exclusion of the lower element?
WOW, THE Olympic National Park RAW DEAL 2014
Senator Murray and Rep. Kilmer keep proposing and pushing THE RAW DEALS.
WILD OLYMPICS WILDERNESS & WILD AND SCENIC RIVERS ACT of 2014 ) an additional 126,000 more acres of National Forest land would be taken out of planned harvestable Natural Resource timber production.
IT WOULD LIMIT AND RESTRICT PUBLIC USE AND ACCESS TO PUBLIC LAND, CLOSE ROADS AND BAR ENTRY WITH LOCKED GATES, CREATING 126,000 WILD ACRES OF NO MAN’S REASONABLE ECONOMIC RESOURCE OR USE OF PRIVATE AND PUBLIC LAND.
LIBERALS ARE TOO DAMNED WILD FOR ME!
