My, my, such strong words. Keep the hate coming, it'll make this nation stronger (not!). People wonder why our nation is so violent, why we're filled with hate. They were politicians, they've done good and bad, but diabolic? It is nuts, absolutely nuts, to blame the desert closures on two people or a single organization. Understand the true causes or history will repeat itself, yes?
Could it be that the pendulum has swung too far the other way, after decades (centuries) of the emphasis being on manifest destiny? You don't think that these too-severe closures are the result of serious mismanagement in the past? Extreme measures are often required to fix extreme problems.
I especially love when you types call people, "communists," sorta like those 80 year old men who still hate "japs" from World War II, walking around dislocated from the rest of society, nursing their archaic, old hatreds.
Just my usual, differing opinion, see you on the trails....
