« on: April 26, 2017, 11:30:35 AM »
About time...

"The Antiquities Act does not give the federal government unlimited power to lock up millions of acres of land and water and it's time we ended this abusive practice," the president said.

snip~
In signing the order, Trump said he was directing Zinke "to end these abuses and return control to the people — the people of Utah, the people of all of the states, the people of the United States."

A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.- James Freeman Clarke

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

Stephen Colbert noted that one of the new national monuments
created in a flurry by the Obama administration
is the Bears' Ears National Monument in Utah,
and that it is noteworthy that Obama created a monument to ears.
