Donald Trump doesn't appear to be much of an outdoors-man, other than driving a cart across a manicured golf course. Has he ever been camping or taken a hike? Maybe he doesn't know what he's missing.

Trumpís pick for managing federal lands doesnít believe the government should have any
And? The land should belong to the individual states and the people, not the federal government. Beyond National Parks and military bases, there is little justification for any federal land ownership.

No, it's not overdue:

It's a favorite worry of the apocalyptically-minded: The huge supervolcano centered below Yellowstone National Park hasn't erupted in hundreds of thousands of years, so obviously it could blow at any minute, right?


"In a word, no. In two words, no way. In three words, not even close. Yellowstone doesn't work that way," writes Michael Poland, Scientist-in-Charge of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory

Governments can't own land because governments have no rights.

Abolish all ďpublicĒ property.
