Nearly all members of
National Park Service advisory panel
resign in frustration

Washington Post, by Juliet Eilperin

Posted By:Zarin, 1/16/2018 10:44:25 PM

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

These so-called ´advisory panels" are arms of the "watermelon" greeny weeny groups that seek to control every aspect of our access and use to our public parks. Good riddance to all of them. YaY! WIN, win, win, win, win

At some point you run out of places meriting designation. Or eventually you reach designation saturation, with every place having some designation.

Sounds like time for the last one out to turn off the lights.
Now, if Trump could completely dissolve these pointless departments, it would be harder for them to grow back the next time an idiot ended up rising to the top.
That is why much of Reagans work was quickly undone. He merely shrunk, rather than disband departments.

The brain trust that enabled a Seattle architect to design a patio on a mountain top in PA for the Flight 93 memorial, that cost $72 million dollars. When it was proven with aerial photos that the site makes a perfect Muslim crescent flag with the huge curved walkway as the crescent and the actual crash site as the star, the Seattle architect, who herded everyone to the winning design, refused to change a thing.I´d spit on all of them if I could.

Ryan seems like a smart guy: new to the agency you spend some time reading about the past and current state of things. Then you begin leading the agency where it needs to go. Ryan will probably figure the agency is unnecessary, or at the least the job can be done by one efficient worker.

Self important pseudo intellectuals struggling for relevancy. These natural wonders have existed for millions of years without any kind of "management" and they will be there for a few million more. Go home and find something else to do.

Amusing anecdote about "homeless" living in the parks. A few centuries ago they were known as "mountain men."

I´m sure that Zinke took one look at WHO was on the board, realized he would get nothing done, and decided to wait their terms out. He wasn´t going to follow their desired path and wasn´t going to allow them to meet and then whine in the media about how he wouldn´t work with them and was against their ideas.

It´s the choice of renovation vs. demolition and starting over.

I think he made a wise choice.

Nine out, 3 to go, If anyone doubts that these folks were rabid environmentalists, then you haven´t been paying attention. The whole Federal bureaucracy at the Department of Interior, the National Park Service, the BLM, and the national Fish and Wildlife Agency were long ago taken over by the animal rights/environmental movement. talk about the fox running the hen house, that´s what we had. Hopefully Sec, Zinke can put things back in order and put people in charge of those agencies that are there to do the will of the people and not a fringe segment made up of rabid fruit cases.

Years ago, I visited with my boyfriend and his family in Yosemite. We were there for about two weeks camping and hiking. I cannot remember precisely as I am no camper, but I recall that the park had a limit as to how many campers could reserve the park for camping and driving privileges. However, that quota did not extend to European and Asian visitors, at least not officially. Germans and the Japanese invaded the park (I gathered that their tour groups paid a huge premium to enter and reserve the park), with absolute no decorum regarding noise, trash - cigarette butts and bottles of alcohol were every where including the streams and large water areas.

Let private enterprise run the national and state parks with a restrictive covenant that a leasehold can only be used for park related activities. This would also take the monopoly stranglehold on related services and expand private employment to employ park personnel to a merit based system and not seniority based system (which creates dead wood) post John Muir.

“What kind of a nation wants to be associated with the mass murder of innocent men, women, and children?” President Trump asked Russia and Iran Friday night after launching air strikes against the Syrian regime. “The nations of the world can be judged by the friends they keep.” [skip] Over the last seven years no country has done more, financially and militarily, to back the Bashar al-Assad regime’s mass murder of Syrians than the Islamic Republic of Iran, a theocracy that claims to rule from a moral high ground. Within hours of joint American, French, and British targeted military strikes

President Donald Trump is poised to pardon Scooter J. Libby, the former chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, according to sources familiar with the president’s thinking. The president has already signed off on the pardon, which is something he has been considering for several months, sources told ABC News. The move would mark another controversial pardon for Trump and could raise questions as an increasing number of the president’s political allies have landed themselves in legal jeopardy. The White House has repeatedly said that no pardons are currently on the table for people caught up in the Russia investigation

Hungary´s Viktor Orban: populist, patriot

Hungary´s all-powerful premier Viktor Orban, his party victorious in elections Sunday, is the self-styled defender of Christian Europe against the "poison" of immigration, an admirer of "illiberal democracy" and a thorn in the European Union´s side. Preliminary results from the elections put Orban´s Fidesz party on course to win a thumping 49 percent of the vote, likely giving him a commanding two-thirds majority in parliament once again. With his disdain for the "globalist elite", Orban´s fiery, nationalist populism has made him a poster boy for "patriots" everywhere. Steve Bannon, US President Donald Trump´s former strategist, calls him a "hero".

President Donald Trump on Thursday ditched his “boring” prepared remarks at a tax roundtable in West Virginia, and instead repeated his claim that “millions” of people are voting illegally and boasted that he was right about the threat of Mexican rapists. “You know, this was going to be my remarks, it would’ve have taken about two minutes, but to hell with it,” the president said, tossing papers in the air. “That would have been a little boring, a little boring.” The event, at which the president and state officials were slated to discuss the recently enacted Republican tax law, quickly veered off

I don´t mind saying that this column represents a grossly understated review of "Discrimination and Disparities," just published by my longtime friend and colleague Dr. Thomas Sowell. In less than 200 pages, Sowell lays waste to myth after myth not only in the United States but around the globe. One of those myths is that but for the fact of discrimination, we´d all be proportionately represented in socio-economic characteristics, such as career, income, education and incarceration. The fact of business is that there is no evidence anywhere on earth, at any time in human history, that demonstrates that but for discrimination,

According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard

A plastic surgeon who filmed herself singing and dancing around the operating table as she performed procedures was accused of leaving a patient with “catastrophic” brain damage.
