How is this a "Classic Strawman" argument? Zinke purports to be against federal land transfer, and last week Zinke voted to change house rules to make said land transfer easier. You either have poor comprehension skills, or you don't know wtf a strawman argument is.
Neither of the methods are safe or a reasonable substitute for the other! This issue has arisen around the extraction of fossil fuels from tar sands and other sources and the subsequent increase in need for transportation.

"While most students seemed to agree the shirts were inappropriate, Vergeront recalls, they were more divided over whether it warranted the level of attention it received online and in the media." Well, no shi*t, if you are not on the receiving end of racism then you have absolutely no clue how it feels or how you would react.

That he or she is a stupid, petty, small minded ignoramus of the kind that Sara Palin comes from. Unfortunately they are capable of committing grievous harm by opening their mouths.
