I agree with Alien:

The next spending bill from the House should, whatever else it contains, include the federal defunding of the National Park Service, right down to zero dollars and zero cents, the complete abolition of any and all federal park management or supervision, and transfer all federal park properties to the states in which they are located.
If the NSPS is going to screw with people this way, it should expect to pay the price; and at this point, I think getting rid of ALL of them is suitable.

Will Fast And Furious Justice Finally Befall Eric Holder?
Not if Obama and most of the media have anything to say about it.  Not to mention the "He's a Democrat, so he gets a pass" bastards in Congress.

Part-time government employees working for Cook County, Illinois — President Obama’s home county — may soon lose their employer-funded health insurance and instead have to move onto Obamacare’s healthcare exchanges.

That move would once again directly contradict President Obama’s promise that Americans who like their health plans could keep them.

Some of the enviroweenies have faced the reality of the true prices of gasohol; corn industry, lobbyists and Al Gore hardest hit.

Over in (formerly Great)Britain,
More than a dozen Muslim clerics have been caught agreeing to marry off girls as young as 14. 
Four imams are now under investigation, after they offered to arrange the illegal ceremonies. 
Undercover reporters, posing as the mother and brother of a 14-year-old, contacted 56 mosques across the country and asked clerics to perform an Islamic marriage ceremony, known as a nika. 
 Imams at 18 mosques agreed – including one who has advised the police. 
The preacher was prepared to arrange the nika despite being told that the ‘bride’ was being forced to move in with a man against her wishes.
One of the annoying things about this crap: some southern preacher was pushing this, we'd be hearing about the 'evil Xtianists' and so forth; muslims do it, we're not supposed to notice.

And while people aren't paying attention to the IRS,
Senior Internal Revenue Service officials—including one at the heart of the IRS “targeting” scandal—violated agency policies and possibly federal records laws by using private email to send confidential taxpayer information, the GOP-led House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform said in a letter.

In a Sept. 30 letter to IRS Acting Commissioner Daniel Werfel obtained by the Free Beacon, Oversight Chairman Darrel Issa (R., Calif.) said an investigation revealed a “troubling pattern” of at least four top IRS officials using their private email addresses to relay confidential tax information.

“This not only raises the prospect of violations of the Federal Records Act but it also raises data security concerns and violates internal IRS policies,” Issa wrote to Werfel.

Down in Mexico,
“The government didn’t do anything to help us,” said Zarcotellos, who lost her brother and a brother in law to the ruthless violence. “We couldn’t even send kids to school. I knew it would only end when the people armed themselves,” she said.

Outside the market, Alberto Castillo, a 62-year-old resident, explained, “the moment came when it became necessary. There was a lot of insecurity so the people rose up.”

Over the course of this year, the security dynamic in Xaltianguis has evolved dramatically. Twice a day, on early morning and mid-afternoon, several dozen women march together -- weapons at the ready -- through the streets. Their presence alone has proven to be a deterrent to would-be thieves and extortionists.
There's the obligatory crap about 'military-grade weapons bought in the US and smuggled in', otherwise a pretty good piece.

Strip all land from the Fe'ral gubbins too, including military bases.

perhaps as a stopgap, grant it to the states it falls within, but with the full intention that it all ends up in private hands - apportioned according to net taxes paid - rather than to tax fattened political cronies. - and fully de fund the BLM.

also completely de fund the dept of Indian affairs, and cede the lands in the reservations to the present individual occupiers and keep the reservations quasi independent status.

all records held by the park service, the BLM and the other bureaus being de-funded need to be destroyed. all of them.

Humpty Dumpty's come off his wall, Humpty Dumpty's heading for a great fall, now you have to make sure that all the king's horses and all the king's men cannot put Humpty together again.
