Even so, I still think I would prefer it to take place like this:

Uncle Sam: Hey Fred, that's a nice rock you got there. What do you call 
Fred: El Capitan.
U.S.: Want to sell it?
Fred: Naaah.
U.S.: Well, if you ever do, can I have first dibs? Or, hey, how bout when 
you're done with it, we'll buy it from your kids and let them use it too. 

Thats much better than:
U.S.: Hey Fred, we're here for you land. Get out.

I think we would all find something else worthwhile to do, and someplace 
to do it, with out the parks, etc. I hope we don't have to find out, 

It ain't much, but try http://members.tripod.com/~Felixhikes/index.html
