How much land is enough? When it comes to the federal government, its appetite is insatiable.
President Obama is currently licking his chops at grabbing up more land in Utah --- a state where the feds already own more than half.
Friday on The Glenn Beck TV Program, Glenn brought out a tasty pie chart to demonstrate how much of Utah President Obama wants to gobble up for the Bears Ears national monument --- and it's not a small slice.
"So I'm just going to cut a piece for you, and a little bit, just a little bit for me. This is your piece and this...this is my piece here," Glenn demonstrated.
As you might imagine, the government took quite a bite --- about three quarters.
"Do you believe them? If they have this much pie and you have this much pie, do you believe that this pie was made for you?! No, I don't think so, but that's just Utah," Glenn said.
In addition to owning 65 percent of the land in Utah, it also owns 85 percent of Nevada and 47 percent of all land west of the Mississippi. What could go wrong with Uncle Sam being the guardian of all that majesty?
"For all you haters out there, what is wrong with declaring an area a national monument? Well, for starters, it's the president himself saying, 'You know what Utah, you didn't vote for me. You've got a little bit too much pie, I'm gonna add a little bit more pie, but don't worry, I know it's starting to look a little bit crumbly, but it's still your pie,'" Glenn said in his best Oliver Twist voice.
California may know a thing or two about that.
"Do you think California would be in a financial crisis if the federal government didn't own half the pie?" Glenn asked. "Maybe California could sell, maybe California could drill, maybe California could, I don't know, build a reservoir? I'm just saying," Glenn said.
Enjoy your crumbs, Utah.
