Where will Obama side on mud puddles?

This probably doesn't interest anyone but me, but I suspect it will shut down my logging business. I currently have logging operations in 14 states. I am a very small operator in comparison to the big guys, but I currently employ 33 people, 12 full time and the rest part time or on a contract basis. I can't imagine how many people are employed in the entire logging industry.

I only cut hardwood and typically plant at least five trees for every tree that I harvest. Last year I preserved over 285 acres of naturally forested lands (legally in a preserve) and maintained over 600 acres of natural forest, removing undergrowth and dead trees. I did develop 22 acres into commercial real estate, but I have easily planted enough trees to cover that area five to six times. Without people like me, and other people in the logging industry, our privately owned natural forests would be in pretty bad shape.

I think this is a perfect example of how the Obama administration is over regulating everything.
