Being an outdoorsy type, my latest Trump outrage is the executive order which will probably place twenty-four national monuments in jeopardy. The very idea that the fate of the public's inheritance will be placed in the hands of a coterie of extractive industry executives is infuriating. Trump has placed so many foxes in the henhouse that it is now a foxhouse.
To compound the crime, certain of these monuments were designated to protect sites important to Native Americans, including sites containing priceless artifacts. Trump has long had a willingness to attack Native Americans who have the temerity to get between him and a dollar.
The post title is derived from this album title. If Epping Forest were a national monument, Trump would turn it over to his cronies:
I have confidence that the National Parks Service will be on the forefront of this battle.
