Fri 8/18 – “Remember candy. Focus on the candy.”

Forget about this guy for a moment. The nationwide debate over whether he is or is-not-a-racist, a closet Nazi, or just as clueless as a ham bone will not be decided in the next week in any meaningful way.


Forget about this guy for a moment too.

Ooops, wrong picture. That’s a picture of somebody who’s actually at one of our national monuments.

Ah, here we go. Here’s our Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke, right now. We can forget about him for the next week too because he’s in the Mediterranean on vacation. Seven (7) days before the Trump’s administration’s deadline to announce the fate of our national heritage. (Spoiler: There won’t be a happy ending.)

We’re sure it’s not like he fled to avoid us and our comments and questions. Maybe he just couldn’t think of a good place to vacation somewhere in this country…

CWP deputy director Greg Zimmerman: “Our national monuments are full of beautiful places to take a summer trip. Secretary Zinke promised a rigorous analysis of national monuments, but what the American public got was a sham review and a foreign vacation.”  

We need to focus. Focus on not forgetting the important things, like our environment and our judicial system, while distractions, deliberate and otherwise, are being thrown at us on a daily basis.

So – be like South Park’s Cartman.


“Focus on the candy!”

Our heritage will be stolen from us, our children and grandchildren if we don’t band together.
