“Thousands of tourists are unexpectedly finding parks closed, nobody there to help, and hotel and campsite reservations useless at Yosemite, Sequoia, Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, Great Smoky Mountains, Big Bend, Acacia, Denali, and 394 other NPS destinations.”
“Organic royalties generate millions of dollars for certifiers – simply for rubber-stamping large transactions, like a quarter-million 3-pound bags, for example. And these agencies are not about to stand idly by and let another department second-guess the rather lucrative decisions they make on the USDA’s behalf.”

What we need is a LibertyCity game. It would be like SimCity, and players would still be mayors, but citizens would enjoy and be responsible for government of, by and for the people.

Invest in fly-by-night enterprises like Solyndra or Fisker Automotive, and you are out of office.
