Yup. The feds created this mess, specifically the senate. The budget doesn't work for the national park systems. increase 30 million visitors over the course of a decade and decrease 2.5k full time employees in that time frame, increase billions in additional park maintenance backlog in that same frame. And then try and privatize the national park system system because it "doesn't work", or reduce the size of parks, etc...it's the same fucking thing this administration is trying to do to the USPS and it's systemic abuse by our Executive and Legislative branches to both of those organizations.

This is one of the things that pisses me off the most and when people act high and mighty about park use + safety in our current environment it realllllly gets me going. Like, oh now you care are you donating to parks? Are you writing your senators? Or are you just telling people what to do from afar?

Not directing this at you, but I'm seeing a lot of this lately. And it pisses me off.
