Re: “Love, American Style

I'll take Chelsea Handler's weekly Netflix show over anything Sarah Silverman is capable of doing.

Re: “Monumental Fumble

It has been pointed out many times that Trump has two options if he wants to modify or revoke any of our national monuments. He can try to do it unilaterally (legally impossible due to the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976) or by asking for an act of Congress (politically impossible).

I find it ironic that Secretary Zinke complains about political motivations when that describes his own report. There simply isn't a non-political reason to drastically cut the size of ten national monuments, and the report doesn't even pretend otherwise.

Re: “Chompocalypse Now!

Trump almost got to be the president in "Sharknado 3," after Sarah Palin turned down the role. There are two different versions of the story.

Re: “Monumental Disaster

Why is the Antiquities Act not the "best mechanism for protecting the antiquities"? The Wilderness Act would do the job too, if our politicians were not opposed to wilderness designations. The national monument designation could result in better management of the Bears Ears area and its irreplaceable prehistoric sites.

Re: “Green Machine

I really wanted the Green Party to get 5 percent of the vote in 2016. Since Utah isn't a swing state, it's "safe to bring your values into the voting booth" here. And there are plenty of other states where progressives could have helped the Greens without hurting the Dems. Yet Jill Stein scored just 1 percent, compared to 2.7 percent for Ralph Nader in 2000.

Despite the miserable showing, the Dems still want to blame Green Party voters for Trump. The blame lies with Dem super-delegates, who could have nominated a winning candidate - Bernie Sanders.

Re: ““There’s Clearly No Answers”

It was the failure of the Utah congressional delegation to produce viable wilderness legislation that resulted in a national monument proclamation, a fact acknowledged by most if not all of the speakers on both sides. That's not a new problem, but the Bears Ears Coalition brought a new solution by engaging Native Americans in public land management more effectively than ever before.
