Sobering indeed. These buffoons can’t get out of office quick enough for me. The shining light, if there is one, is that once the pendulum swings to one extreme, it usually swings the other direction. Let’s hope it swings before too much lasting damage occurs.

@ Paul Wagner
Thanks for sharing a very poignant and timely opinion piece.
I am not sure about swinging the other way. The mineral extraction last for at least two years and do long term damage. Most of the extraction operations are automated and deliver few incremetal new jobs, the profits if any will not be reinvested in the Western states but go to the Eastern seaboard, if not out of the USA.
