What Could Go Wrong?

Here's a great idea.

In the Trump administration, our national parks and public lands could be overseen by the president of Lucas Oil, a man who funds groups that actively oppose the Humane Society.

Sources close to Donald Trump told Politico this week that the Republican presidential candidate is considering oil executive and vocal animal rights opponent, Forrest Lucas, to serve as Secretary of the Interior if he is elected to the White House. The Department of the Interior (DOI) oversees 500 million acres of public lands, including America’s 413 national parks, the protection of endangered species, and federal oil, gas, and coal reserves.

It doesn't take a stretch of the imagination to see where this would lead.

Our national parks would be opened up for mining and drilling operations. Coastlines would be plundered. Dormant coal mines would spring into action. Environmental regulation and protection of local animals would be completely tossed aside. Every pipeline would be approved.

A Trump presidency would do irreparable harm to the environment and accelerate global warming.

    And yet all of this will go right through the heads of the many on the Left like crap through a goose. Because in their minds, Hillary will be worse.

    Shocking but hardly surprising, since Donald Trump is this close *holds thumb and index finger 3Å apart* to proposing to nominate Judge Judy to the Supreme Court.

    Donald Trump must never be elected President of the United States.

    And the roots of this go all the way back to Ronald the Sainted Reagan. I’ve said for years that he’s the guy who pioneered putting foxes in charge of hen houses. Remember James Watt? And this is what we’ve come to. Disgusting! Well, if I have to quit my job and go chain myself to a bulldozer somewhere, I’m about ready to…

    And yet, thanks to the so-called liberal biased Mainstream Media overlooking the mountain of disasters and red flags the Drumph campaign has created, while creating such a mountain out of the molehill of the Clinton campaign, all so they can have their tight perfect precious horserace for November. Hillary’s huge post convention bounce has all but disappeared, with polls showing them even and key swing states in Drumph’s favor. The very real possibility of the living disaster named Drumph becoming president CAN happen.

    The time for you to panic is now, Ash!

    The idea of a Trump Presidency only gets more depressing…
