    There is a bill on the Utah House floor, that passed out of the Legislative Committee by a 9-2 vote, that would rename the National Parks Highway after President Donald Trump. This is in response to Trump undoing the last minute abuse of the Antiquities Act by Obama just before he left office, in what amounted to a massive land grab by the federal government.

    The Sierra Club is not happy, saying the President doesn't deserve such an honor for reducing the size of National Monuments (while also trying to imply the sanctity of National Monuments that are centuries old instead of the months old they really are).

    But my favorite comment is from Wendy Garvin of the Utah Progressive Caucus. She said, "I don't think people are going to be willing to drive on a road with his name on it."

    They will still drive on it the question is when they are done with their lunch will they throw the garbage on the floor of their car or out the window?

    If they have way more litter to pick up they will know if they made the right decision.

      Reminds me a little bit ( although different circumstances)of former OSU coach Woody Hayes who on recruiting trips to Michigan would not stop on I75 to get gas until he arrived back in Ohio across the border. Hatred ran pretty deep.:D

      Indictments only have a value if you can use them for something. These hackers aren't testifying to anything. Yep, still nothing. But. the popcorn smells good. :D

      Puff piece? Fact check - True
      And a mighty long one at that. A mere 15,000 words. Had to take a nap in between.
      A synopsis of Steele:
      Christopher Steele, he has bulldog tenacity as an investigator. Just call him the British Bulldog, he's so tenacious. Lol

      The only thing the Man of Steele is missing is a cape.

      Their best hope at least on this would be Kushner. Even then I am not sure it is enough. As for Trump, this wouldn't do it. If so, it would have been farther along. Just my opinion of course as some of this is already known and not exactly new news.

      Not terribly bright ... which I guess accounts for the career choice of "Murderer For Hire":

      Well, some might say that ANY analysis or opinion on events of the day or political happenings is "partisan bullsh*t" ... whether it includes a "Explained" or "Analysis" disclaimer or not.

      After all: if it walks like a duck ... amirite ?

      Sure, some may say that. But of course just because something is an opinion piece doesn't in and of itself mean it's partisan BS. It's likely partisan, but it's not necessarily BS. A lot of opinion pieces are interesting and/or informative without trying to BS or propagandists you.

      But those two words in particular in a headline offers special signaling.

      Come on mutt, this isnt anywhere close to being on the same scale of what McCarthy did.
