Good that our President is acting to protect the earth. In Oregon, our coastline is considered public domaine.

This is fabulous, the sort of thing we expect from President Obama yet,what with all of the obstructionism and other nonsense impeding any move forward in Congress and elsewhere, too seldom hear of.

Robert T., the Republicans will want to drill for oil there immediately.because President Obama just declared it a protected area. (NOT lol, unfortunately.)

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Cal because you have done so within the last week.
