  1. Most of these employees that are non-essential should be permently let go.

    Keep the 20K they have for the park service and the rest we just don’t need.

  2. Perhaps Sacker should keep this in mind when he and his agency are working so hard to shut down the fossil fuel industry or the logging industry or the mining industry or squeezing the manufacturing industry to death. Sorry I have no sympathy for Sacker or his agency.

  3. What proportion of politicians in the US Federal Government are members of the political party he’s objecting to?
