Re: obalmo is destroying the national parks

Is this something you have observed, heard, read or are you just shooting off your mouth. Something has to give when we are broke. I'd like to say the roads are falling apart under Obama. I observe that on every day. Is it Obama's fault???

You are right for once

The National Park system is being starved and has been being starved for a long time by several administrations. Don't forget that there are also National Monuments and National Historic Sites, National Historic Parks and many other designations including battlefields under the National Park's administration.

 

That said, you have professed selling National Parks out to the highest bidder in a previous opinion. Why the change of mind? I thought cut and starve the beast was the way to deal with government in your opinion.

Re: obalmo is destroying the national parks

The biggest problem the parks are having right now is the repub caused sequester.  Maintenance and jobs are being furloughed for now even though the parks generate billions of revenue for both the surrounding area and the park system.  He tried to shoot off his mouth not long ago but missed and blew his brain out.  That in itself was a minor miracle that he hit it since it is so small!

Re: You are right for once

The NP annual budget has been cut 1/13th of 1% or $600 million and has a budget of just short of $3Billion.  I think there probably are things that could be cut.  Not sure if Rangers are one of the things but...

Snook are right for more than once

Actually, I should have looked into this more before passing judgement (unlike some folks). I have had a lifelong career in parks, though not Federal. I have about 30 years experience in my career. Because of the nature of this cutthorat website, I won't say more, but apparently Obama has not been an enemy of National Parks.

 

This website has statistics: http://www.doi.gov/budget/appropriations/2013/highlights/upload/BH071.pdf

 

Basically, I love all parks from county to National. They promote health, well being, families, cultural heritage and hold the natural and historic fabric of our land. Apparently, most presidents have held support barring a few in the recent decades.

 

Thank you for the correction. Ollie is just fishing for disgust as usual.
