"States? We Don't Need Your Steeenkin' States!"

After all, it's for the chillllrun. Or somebody. Or something.

But it's all about the Ruling Class.

Back in February, a leaked memo from the Department of the Interior showed that the Obama administration was considering designating as many as 17 new national monuments throughout the West, effectively closing off huge swaths of land to development. That this was being done without the input of Congress or local authorities angered many.

Bob Bishop (R) Utah, found a few more pages, which tell you all you need to know about the Ruling Class.

The new pages show a federal bureaucracy that has contempt for the legislative process and the input of elected representatives. “Should the legislative process not prove fruitful, or if a nationally significant natural or cultural land resource come under threat of imminent harm, the BLM [Bureau of Land Management] would recommend that the Administration consider using the Antiquities Act [to designate a national monument],” reads the new document.

IIRC, that was the vehicle by which Clinton snatched Escalante, which eliminated a huge coal deposit from mining.

They just take it. You don't like it? Shove it up your a%%.
