    It's human nature. Don't sweat it.

    It's not xenophobia. Don't be so dramatic. Most people don't fear or hate Mexicans. They just want them to stay on their side of the fence.

    Xenophobia is one of those loaded words being used to fire up the progressive base, along the lines of homophobic, racist, NAZI, et al.

    But wait, it's only Trump who has ever done that kind of stuff...

    Categorically wrong, so wrong in fact Poe's Law is kicking in as hard as when PShip was talking about Football being a real wargame that imparted the skills to fight skillfully against a trained fighter.

    That's not really the most pertinent question you could ask in regards the outdoors.

    I'm not familiar with what is going on at the EPA, other than superficially.

    Try looking into sale of Federal lands, or handing Federal lands over to state or local control. Chafee from Utah has been doing some stuff with that, and it's getting a lot of push-back.

    I don't have a problem with the pipeline in ND.

    Gotta get to work now, later.

    Do you remember acid rain or NYC having Poisonous air? The lungs of nonsmokers were black as coal when they were autopsied. Apartment buildings had garbage incinerators that were just basically open trash fires. Raw sewage was pumped into federal water ways.
    A river or bay doesn't belong to a state,a person or company. It isn't their right to destroy and poison things that dont belong to them.
