BLM and Trump’s shutdown

I’m sitting on BLM land right now. The check-in station is closed, but the dump and water stations are open, though not monitored. So it’s basically business-as-usual, very low impact. These functions are staffed by unpaid volunteers, but they cannot “work” anyway during the shutdown. No savings here.

An observation: Over the last month I’ve seen BLM enforcement just once. Today I’ve seen them 5 times. This may be the usual gov’t theater when they want to make a point, but extra staff put on for the shutdown just increases costs.

It’s absurd adults act this way…
