This is, simply put, preposterous and unacceptable. That the government is shut down at all is bad enough. The reason for it is disgraceful and now some of the consequences of that nonsense are this – our national parks are being abused and degraded. Because of a government shutdown. Because we let a dangerous man-child into the office. Let’s learn. Please. Can we make it a New Year’s resolution? Never, EVER do this again? Responsible adults to run government?
