Does he say "Eagle" more or "going away from the norm"?

Wilderness Bill Clears First Hurdle in Congress
@dthomp325: Stop talking about wheelchairs. There is nothing prohibiting wheelchairs, even motorized wheelchairs, in wilderness areas. You're talking pretty definitively about what this bill is and what its results will and will not be which seems strange considering you're either ignoring or are just unaware of facts.

Wilderness Bill Clears First Hurdle in Congress
@SJP: you asked if it would make a difference, which I understood as a difference in my immediate suspicion of the bill, as that was the topic at hand. You did not ask if it would change my opposition, and it would not. The only change to wilderness regulations I would support is tightening them by banning horses. This is one bill so you're stretching it pretty far to imply that anyone suspicious of it because of its proponents is the problem with politics. Will you feel better if I tell you that when I vote I vote for at least one republican just so I don't appear partisan? I realize that lots of mountain bikers will support this bill, and I think that's selfish. I realize that many people will say who proposed the bill doesn't matter, and I think that's incredible folly. I think many of you are using one of those to justify the other. I don't think it's a "slippery slope", I think it's a precisely placed wedge.

Wilderness Bill Clears First Hurdle in Congress
@SJP: You're playing word games. Why would you say it allows more people to experience wilderness when what you mean is that it will allow mountain bikers to experience wilderness more? Yes, it would make a difference if the bill was introduced by anyone who didn't have a history of trying to erode federal protection of public lands. I'm sure you'll have something to say about that, but it's irrelevant because whether or not it's all partisanship or grandstanding, it hasn't happened.

Wilderness Bill Clears First Hurdle in Congress
@SJP: They have a lot do with it as they are the writer and major supporter of this bill. Unless you consider your bike a person, allowing bikes in wilderness does not allow more people to experience the wilderness.

@Kitejumping: You should cling to that red herring until your last breath. Never let go. The rest of us can have a grown up discussion.

@SJP: If you have such a difficult time believing that this bill isn't meant specifically to weaken the wilderness designation, with the added benefit of driving a wedge between conservationists and mountain bikers (and infighting amongst bikers), look no further than the records of McClintock and Bishop.

Opinion: Great Rides Don't Always Have Happy Endings
@owlie: "Thanks for the politcal plug Richard. I dont get enough shitty politics on the internet." Thank you for turning it back to mountain biking. Public lands is not a pertinent mountain biking issue, but news sources definitely is.
