Hey Dems, go less political and talk about something like this !!!

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-51449739

Cacti that are over 200 years old and have sacred significance have been chopped down

Native American burial sites have been blown up by construction crews building the US-Mexico border wall, says a lawmaker and tribal leaders.

Authorities confirmed that "controlled blasting" has begun at Arizona's Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, a Unesco recognised natural reserve.

Raul Grijalva, a Democratic congressman, called the destruction "sacrilegious".

The government failed to consult the Tohono O'odham Nation, he said.

Environmental groups also warn of the damage being done to the local underground aquifer, as well as to migrating wildlife in the remote desert region about 115 miles (185km) west of Tucson.

1. Every single day...

...I think I could never hate the man or the administration more.

Every single day...they prove me wrong.

I can't imagine how this was allowed to happen. I'm guessing there will be lawsuits, he won't care and it will never heal the damage he has done.

This is heartbreaking and unforgivable.

2. We should go after Trump's sacred lands.

Can Bill Murray blow up some more golf courses?

It's the only thing that doesn't bother his fake bone spurs.

5. Good idea

I think we should put them in all of trumps golf properties and make sure they are "huge", the biggest gophers you have ever seen, and the best hole diggers around!

People will say "sir" you have the biggest gophers I have ever seen, and they will shed a few tears for him!

7. If we put 51 GOP senators there, all the rodents would starve.

They wouldn't find any nuts.

14. Yes! Ruined the land in Scotland. He used to have a website Trump family history.

Listed all his ancestors. Off topic, I know, but remember that staffer who they blamed for stealing Michelle's speech? They said her name was Meridith McIver and had little history? Trump had ancestors named McIver. Thought too much coincidence.

21. Maybe the McIvers were related to the Barrons.

That name also has popped up at least twice in his life.

12. "Migrating wildlife" won't be able to migrate with a wall

There is an aquifer underground and they have been using "controlled blasting" as well. The likely devastation to animals and the aquifer should have been studied as they are critical environmental concerns, but what of the protected cactus and the indigenous burial sites?
How could any of this have been approved? My guess is that it was rammed through in spite of a mountain of resistance.
DT doesn't care.

20. You are right. How could we get this out there without

mentioning wall? Just say digging ? Trump approved digging on sacred land? Let people figure out the wall piece?

16. How the F are they allowed to do this without a NEPA review?

I had to file a SEPA checklist to add a railing to a client's existing dock!

It's a NATIONAL MONUMENT for chrissakes!

What could possibly go wrong when it's not supported by ALL the people paying for it?

Good old Boneyspurs, you can count on him to keep on clustering everything!
